George Strait is currently in the middle of final leg of his The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. While he still has a few months to go before wrapping his tour and is enjoying traveling the country to play for his fans one last time, he sees a tropical vacation in his future.
“I’m going somewhere,” he said. “I don’t know where, but I’m going somewhere to celebrate. I haven’t been to Hawaii in years, so I would love to see it again and try to find my old house over there and all that stuff.

Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson and Jason Mraz performed for a packed house during the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s All For The Hall fundraising concert in Los Angeles. Each artist performed acoustically, showcasing their voices and sharing personal stories that ranged from heartfelt to amusing.
“This is such a big thrill for us,” Ann Wilson said. “To come up here and sing with these incredible folks, I’m just a little breathless because of it.”
Vince Gill served as the night’s host. The concert was designed as a guitar pull, a casual setting where performers take turns playing their songs while the other artists either sit and enjoy or join in. The show didn’t feature a set list, with each artist deciding what they were going to play in the moment. Continue Reading
The mystery thickens with Eric Church’s latest video, “A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.” The video is part of an ongoing storyline surrounding the people of San Destino in support of his new album, The Outsiders. As with his previous two videos, more questions are raised in “A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young” as two new characters – a young boy and girl – are introduced.
Eric’s previous video, “San Destino Rising: Movimiento De Una,” doesn’t correlate to any of the songs found on The Outsiders, but does expand on the storyline from Eric’s “Give Me Back My Hometown” video.

Eli Young Band’s new album, 10,000 Towns, is now available. They chose the album’s title because it seemed like the obvious choice, given the amount of time they spend on the road. They have seen hundreds of towns over the years and despite each town’s differences, they tend to have a few things in common.
“We went out there and played every city and every small town that we had a chance to play,” Mike Eli said. “That was one of the reasons we wanted this to be the album title. So many of these small towns all across this country, everyone parties the same way, drinks the same beer. It’s just one of those things, as different as we all are, at the end of the day when we sit down and crack open the beer, we’re all the same, you know.” Continue Reading
