a fan of Dierks Bentley gets scammed & CMA Country Christmas airs tonight

This weekend, a fan of Dierks Bentley sent $160,000 in cashier’s checks and gift cards to a person claiming to be him. The victim met the Dierks imposter on Twitter and that led to some personal text messages. Local police have now turned this case over to federal authorities.

Keith Urban has a free New Year’s Eve show in Nashville and portions of it will air on Carson Daly’s New Year's Eve on NBC.

CMA Country Christmas airs tonight on NBC with Reba hosting. Performers include Old Dominion, Brett Eldredge, Brad Paisley, Dan + Shay and Tony Bennett. Also tonight Maren Morris is on the NBC special; Pentatonix: A Not So Silent Night.
