OLE MEETS NEW
9/19/18


Last night, platinum-selling Broken Bow Records star Dustin Lynch became the newest member of the esteemed Grand Ole Opry. And he was inducted by none other than icon Reba McEntire. The Tennessee native choked back tears during the ceremony—at which, he was also presented with a plaque commemorating 1b career streams. We can only imagine the sobbing that will ensue when someone tells him his photo ran here.

Lynch's latest single, "Good Girl," is currently #27 and climbing at Country radio. He'll stop in Vegas for the iHeartRadio Music Festival on 9/22 before teaming up with Cole Swindell and special guest Lauren Alaina for the Reason to Drink... Another Tour, which kicks off in Tuscaloosa on 10/4. 

Seen with Lynch, before attempting to count their endless reasons to drink, are Broken Bow's Jay Jones, Chris LossScotty O’Brien, Jon Loba, JoJamie HahrLee AdamsShelley HargisAndrea Knipp, Rick SheddAddie Saloman and Chelsey Block.

OLD DOMINION AND FRIENDS GIVE BACK
9/19/18

Last night, RCA Nashville's Old Dominion headlined the historic Ryman Auditorium for An Evening With Friends.

Featuring surprise guests Kenny Chesney (pictured here with OD's Matthew Ramsey and Trevor Rosen), Kelsea Ballerini, Sam Hunt and Michael Ray, the special gig raised a total of $40k for charity, with half of the proceeds benefiting the Opry Trust Fund and the other half benefiting the Ryan Seacrest Foundation

After selling out arenas throughout the U.S. and Canada on the winter leg of their Happy Endings World Tour, the band loved the idea of checking the iconic venue off their bucket list before picking back up for the fall stretch of the arena tour. That run will begin 10/4 at the Knoxville Coliseum

CARRIE'S THINKING PINK
9/13/18

Capitol Nashville star Carrie Underwood, whose album Cry Pretty drops tonight, will flip the switch at the Grand Ole Opry to turn the signature barn backdrop pink in support of the fight against breast cancer. This will take place on 10/26 as part of the 10th annual Opry Goes Pink. And she's slated to perform twice that night. The moment marks a return for Underwood, who first flipped the switch back in 2009. 

"Cry Pretty Opry Goes Pink" packages—featuring Opry Goes Pink tickets, the new album due and a collectible print—have also been created. Starting today, $5 from every package and ticket sold will be donated to the cause. These can be snagged at opry.com and at (800) SEE-OPRY. 

THIS ACM PHOTO OP IS IN
THEIR WHEELHOUSE
9/13/18

Buzzing Wheelhouse Records group Runaway June were spotted far from Nashville the other day, when they appeared at the Academy of Country Music's Encino, CA offices to perform current single "Buy My Own Drinks" and a selection of other gems from their self-titled EP.

As evidenced by this video, the fun hang was certainly nothing to run away from—until of course CEO Pete Fisher gave them directions to the HITS Hollywood offices. Oddly enough, the ladies have been "stuck in traffic" ever since.
