Kip Moore, Vince Gill & Pam Tillis appearing on Nashville

Kip Moore.

ABC’s hit new series “Nashville” is really pumping up its country music cred. After already having country stars Chris Young and Brantley Gilbert have cameo performances on previous episodes, producers announced that Kip Moore, the legendary Vince Gill, and Pam Tillis will be part of the February 27th episode.  The episode follows the birthday of character Deacon, who is played by Charles Esten.

Kip, who is a fan of the show, shares on why he hopes fans don’t think the real Nashville isn’t as dramatic:

”I don’t think that everybody believes that’s exactly how Nashville is. Tell people to lighten up a little bit. It’s TV. You gotta put the drama in there, and you gotta do stuff entertaining for people.”

Check out the preview for “Dear Brother” below. Who do you want to see appear on the show next?

5th Annual “Opry Goes Pink”

Opry Goes Pink

It’s a very special night for a very important cause.

The Grand Ole Opry is joining Women Rock For The Cure for their 5th Annual “Opry Goes Pink” event. Each year, an artist is chosen to flip the switch to turn the Opry’s signature barn backdrop pink. This year, LeAnn Rimes has that honor.

The special night will take place on October 22nd. Joining Rimes to perform that evening are Amy Grant, Pam Tillis, Mandisa, Natalie Grant, and Lorrie Morgan. Activities honoring survivors and in memoriam of those lost will also take place throughout the event.

Five dollars for every ticket sold go to Women Rock For The Cure to benefit breast cancer awareness.

Women certainly do rock and we will rock for a cure!

Craig Morgan’s Charity Weekend Raises $95,000 for Billy’s Place

Craig Morgan.

This year, Craig Morgan’s Charity Motocross Ride, Concert and Sporting Clay Shoot raised more than the previous two years – more than $95,000 – and that makes for a very happy Morgan.

Morgan was quoted as saying this about the results of this year’s event:

“It’s amazing how much this event has grown over the last 5 years and I’m over-the-top grateful to everyone from our celebrity friends and the Dickson and Middle Tennessee communities for their support. We raised a record high amount this year for Billy’s Place and I’m thankful for the opportunity to do more for the children and families of Dickson. I already can’t wait to do it again next year!”

Proceeds from the weekend’s activities benefit Billy’s Place, which is supporting children’s causes in Middle Tennessee and working toward building a home for temporarily displaced children in Morgan’s hometown of Dickson, just outside Nashville.
