I was looking over Kenny Chesney’s web site earlier today, and noticed that he has a show up already for 2010. He will be at Louisiana State University’s Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La. on May 30, 2010.
Kenny won’t be doing this one alone though. Other performers at the LSU stadium show include Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Kellie Pickler, Jason Aldean, Jake Owen, Justin Moore, Gloriana, David Nail, and Brooks and Dunn. Their appearance will be part of their farewell tour.
Holly Williams, who released her debut CD on June 16, is heading out on tour with Jewel. The tour will start Nov. 6, in Biloxi, Miss., and head to Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and several other states. You can get the list on Holly’s web site.
John Rich and Joan Bush, who were married last December, are expecting a baby. John has always kept his private live away from news media, but I hope he will keep us all informed as the new baby’s arrival date gets closer
The Oct. 13, “We’re All For the Hall” concert in Nashville is being called a great success. Approximately $350,000 was raised, and it will all benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame. The event was held at the Sommet Center, with 14,000 people attending.
Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean and Little Big Town were all a part of this year’s benefit concert. And a second benefit has already been scheduled for Oct. 6, 2010. I need to keep up with things like that, so I can plan my vacations around them! That had to be a great event. And definitely one I’d like to make next year.
We have another new Christmas CD to look forward to. This one is Charlie Daniels & Friends, Joy To The World. This is a two-disc set and includes a CD and bonus DVD, A Twin Pines Christmas. Both feature collaborations between Charlie Daniels and guests Kathy Mattea, Dan Tyminski, Jewel,* Suzanne and Evelyn Cox of the Cox Family, Aaron Tippin and The Grascals. The Twin Pines Christmas DVD contains live performances, as well as additional commentary and interview footage with Daniels and the rest of the artists.
that’s all for this morning, a little assortment of news before I get ready for work. Didn’t get my mail answered last night, so I’ll try to do that tonight. Hope you all have a good day. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m already looking forward to a relaxing weekend.
