Tim plays VJ for the day today on CMT. He’s on the cover of People Magazine! His new album, “Two Lanes of Freedom” will be out on Tuesday. On it, a duet with Taylor Swift titled “Highway Don’t Care.”
Kenny Chesney’s new album “Life on a Rock” will be out April 30th. His first single is called “Pirate Flag” he tells us why he is so drawn to the message of the song: “’Pirate Flag’ is a huge part of my truth. It’s a very real song for me. But no matter who you are or how you live, there’s a part of you that wants to be free to say, you know, ‘What the heck? I just want to go do what I want to do.’ And that’s what this song’s all about for me is the freedom and the idea that you can say, ‘Enough is enough.’ Even if it’s only in your mind, while you’re watching your boss get on you, or whatever it is, I mean, whatever’s weighin’ you down in your life.” I’ll play it at 2:20 today!
Randy Travis pled guilty to drunk driving charges in a courtroom appearance yesterday. He has been sentenced to 6 months in jail on a 2 year probabation. That means no jail time if he stays out of trouble for the next two years. He was fined $2000, 100 hours of community service and 30 days in an alcohol treatment facility. The judge agreed not to release the video from the arrest.
Congrats to The Henningsens (Father-Son and Daughter) who make their Grand Ol Opry debut this weekend.
