An exhibit honoring Dierks Bentley opens March 4 at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. On March 12, he’ll be there to perform and talk about his career and it’ll be streamed live on the museum's web site. 

Lady A’s Charles Kelley has his debut solo album, ‘The Driver’ out today. The nine tunes include guest vocals from Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Eric Paslay and Stevie Nicks. Tonight Charles will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. 

The Super Bowl’s Sunday and Sam Hunt will co-headline the CBS Tailgate Party. As for who will win, Sam says, “I’m going with Peyton Manning because it could be his last go. He deserves it more than anyone and he’s one of the best that’s ever played.” 

Luke Bryan says his Super Bowl snacks include spicy cheese dip with Frito’s Scoops. 

Finally – a new species of tarantula where the males are predominantly black was recently found roaming near Folsom Prison, California, so it’s been named after Johnny Cash. Its scientific name is, ‘a-phono-pelma johnny-cashi.’
