who was subbed in the cms'a & Dolly Parton’s new 8-epsisode Netflix series shoots next month

The CMA nominations came out yesterday. Chris Stapleton leads with 5 nods. Midland had 3 and Miranda Lambert has two nominations. A few left off the ballot were Blake Shelton, Garth, Eric Church and Brett Eldredge. There were also no females in Entertainer of the Year. Miranda headlined two of her own tours and should have been a contender.  

Dolly Parton’s new 8-epsisode Netflix series will shoot next month in Atlanta. It seems to focus around World War II and we still don’t know if Dolly will be in it. Right now they’re casting men to play soldiers and amputees to play wounded veterans. They also need extras to portray 1940’s townspeople. The first day of shooting is September 11 and it’ll premiere sometime next year.  

The funeral for Aretha Franklin will be online & several stations including Fox News and CNN. It starts at 10 AM ET Friday. 20 will perform including Faith Hill, Stevie Wonder & Jennifer Hudson.  

Finally - Florida Georgia Line will headline the World’s Biggest USO Tour next month, live from Washington, D.C. It happens Sept. 12 and be livestreamed all over the world at USO.org/tour.
