  • George Jones Farewell Tour marks the end of an era.  And he’s going out with quite the celebration.  Jones will play his final show in Nashville November 22nd at Bridgestone Arena with a slew of special guests.  Montgomery Gentry, Kenny Rogers, Josh Turner, and Dierks Bentley are the latest additions to the ever-growing list of talent set to take stage for the final Nashville concert of George Jones’ career.  That group joins already announced artists Charlie Daniels, Lorrie Morgan, Randy Travis, Jamey Johnson, and Gene Watson.  Jones said, “I am excited that my friends all want to be with me on this show.  This is sure going to be a fun and emotional night with lots of memories, friends, and great country music.”
  • Lady Antebellum visited Good Morning America to reveal the details of their fourth studio album.  “Golden” will hit stores May 7th, and the group says this album is different than what we’re used to from them.  Charles Kelley describes the album saying, “This album feels to me like one of those that from start to finish could be a good road-trip record and that’s what we wanted.”  Hillary Scott says it took them back to when they first met and really created the group through songwriting together.  And Dave Haywood sums it up for the group saying, “I personally feel so humbled to still be making records that people are excited to hear.”

  • And Ashley Monroe of the Pistol Annies is set to release a solo album March 5th with “Like A Rose.”  The album includes a duet with Blake Shelton titled “You Ain’t Dolly (And You Ain’t Porter).”  Monroe co-wrote the song with Vince Gill and says they knew Blake was meant to partner with her on the tune.  The lyrics even make mention of Blake’s hit show The Voice.  It’s a quirky tune, in which the two take jabs comparing each other to Dolly Parton and Porter Waggoner.  Monroe says, "It's borderline mean, but we love each other, so it isn't."  Take a listen and let us know what you think...
