The Band Perry Honor Stevie Wonder + Garth & Trisha Will Record Duets Album

The Band Perry will sing on the TV special, Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life - An All-Star Grammy Salute. The two-hour show’s taped in LA next month to air February 16 on CBS.

The long-awaited duets album from Garth and Trisha might soon become a reality as he says recording it’s one of his goals for 2015. They’re finally on the same label so that will make it a lot easier to do. Garth says, “it’ll be a duets album like nothing you’ve seen before.”

Tonight Florida Georgia Line team up with Nelly to headline a pre-Super Bowl show in Scottsdale, Arizona. 

Justin Moore’s working on a new record and says, “I haven't yet decided what the new album will be but I want to do different stuff every time out. All I know is it will have a classic country sound.”

Finally - Shania: Still the One Live from Vegas, will air February 28 at 9 PM ET on ABC.
