Chris Young is the opry's newest member and miranda lambert rescues 72 dogs from Houston flooding


Chris Young sang his latest #1 hit, ‘Sober Saturday Night,’ featuring Vince Gill, last night at the Opry. Right after that, Vince surprised him with an invitation to become the Opry’s newest member. It was 11 years ago that Chris made his debut on the Opry stage and he is thrilled! 

Miranda Lambert was in Houston last night with her MuttNation Foundation rescuing 72 dogs from the floods. She also ended up with some new roommates because of it, a mama dog and the six puppies she had just given birth to. 

Before his shows a few days ago at Gillette Stadium, Kenny Chesney stopped by the Patriots practice, throwing a football with players and chatting with the coach. Kenny’s good friends with Patriots owner Robert Kraft and even sat in his private seats the last Super Bowl they were in. 

Dierks Bentley started out playing small clubs and when he graduated to bigger theaters, his tour manager would put drapes up in the back so Dierks wouldn’t be able to see the empty seats. 

Finally - tonight CMT Crossroads pairs Florida Georgia Line and the Backstreet Boys.

luke bryan's semi in accident and miranda lambert helps animals caught in hurricane harvey


A semi carrying tour equipment for Luke Bryan was crushed like an accordion after hitting an overpass yesterday morning. It got wedged under the overpass cause the clearance was too low as it’s illegal to drive a commercial vehicle on that parkway without a permit. Police are investigating to see if Luke’s semi had the proper papers. 

Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation is headed to her home state of Texas to help animals caught in Hurricane Harvey. They’re bringing trailers full of pet supplies and food but no word yet if Miranda will be along. You can donate to support them at muttnationfoundation.com. 

Dustin Lynch grew up on a farm and one time he was closing a gate when a cow ran toward him and knocked him down hard. Dustin told me he didn’t try to get out of the way cause he heard a cow would stop if he held his ground but he learned that’s not always the case. 

Finally - Jason Aldean says his pre-show ritual includes an acoustic VIP show for a few fans then he does his meet and greet and right before a concert, he’ll hang with his band and wife and listen to music.
