Kris Jones has a new video about dogs: You Rescued Me
Dierks Bentley released a funny tour promo video with Jon Pardi and Tenille Townes
Kevin Fowler is releasing a song called “Country Song To Sing.” I heard him record a version of this one at the Texas Music Scene taping a few weeks back.
Ray Scott has a song debut at Cowboys & Indians magazine.
We’re just eleven days into the year, and I already have 20+ songs on my 2019 Country Plus Showcase
I need to decide whether to start changing songs out, or if I keep collecting songs at this rate, maybe change the list to just the first quarter of the year, then start a new list for each quarter. Last year’s gigantic list of 570 was a whole lot of fun to put together, but it was very unwieldy, especially since YouTube allows one to see just 200 at a time.
Tonight is Mark Wills’ official induction into the Grand Ole Opry. He had appeared as an Opry guest 256 times !
I don’t know how many other guests have appeared that many times, but I have read that Elizabeth Cook has made the most Opry appearances of any non-member at over 400. The Grascals passed 200 last year.
