music loses roy clark & Dierks Bentley resigs from the Nashville Airport's board of director

A few things from the CMA Awards happened during commercial breaks. Hockey fanatic Dierks Bentley chatted with Carrie’s husband Mike Fisher. Michael Ray let girlfriend Carly Pearce put her make-up in his pocket so she didn’t have to carry a purse and Thomas Rhett brought a power bar and shared it with his wife.  

Roy Clark died yesterday at 85. Keith Urban said Roy was the first person he ever saw shred a guitar. Blake Shelton tweeted, "very sad to hear about fellow Okie Roy Clark; one of the first country artists I ever saw on TV." Chris Young wrote, “music has lost a treasure. I remember watching episodes of Hee Haw with my grandparents as a kid and thinking how talented he was.”  

Dierks Bentley has resigned from the Nashville Airport's board of directors. This comes after he refused to release emails and text messages to the former airport CEO who filed a wrongful termination lawsuit. Dierks said his busy schedule also played a role in his decision to resign.  

Finally – Martina McBride’s Food Network series, ‘Martina's Table’ premiers Sunday morning.

a shocked keith urban wins entertainer of the year & carrie underwood is having another boy

At last night’s CMAs one of the sweetest moments was the tune Garth sang for Trisha, ‘Stronger Than Me.” They had a spotlight on her the whole time and she got teary-eyed at the very end.

Entertainer of the Year was a shocked Keith Urban. His last win in that category was 13 years ago. Chris Stapleton won Male Vocalist and ‘Broken Halos’ took Single and Song of the Year. Luke Combs cried accepting Best New Artist and Old Dominion took home Vocal Group.

Female Vocalist was Carrie Underwood. Last night she also revealed her unborn baby is a boy.

Two highlights were Maren Morris, Chris Stapleton and Mavis Staples singing together and Midland performing the Jerry Reed hit, ‘East Bound and Down’ from Smoky and the Bandit.

Kenny Chesney had to sadly cancel his appearance last night due to a death in the family.

Finally – Scotty McCreery will help flip the switch tonight on the Christmas lights at Elvis’s Graceland and he’ll perform and we can watch for free on Livestream.
