Luke combs meets doilly & Garth was at Spring Training for the Pirates

Blake Shelton will turn spring break in East Tennessee into ‘Spring Blake,’ to celebrate the grand opening of Ole Red Gatlinburg. The week’s activities will end with a concert from Blake March 13. If you can’t be there you can still watch part of the show on Ole Red’s Facebook page.  

Garth stopped by the first day of Spring Training for the Pirates yesterday. He’ll start workouts Thursday and stay in the camp till Tuesday. When Garth hit the field yesterday, he took some grounders at third base and actually looked pretty good. As for sliding for a fly ball, Garth said sliding isn’t the problem, it’s the getting up part that’s hard at his age.  

Luke Combs did not meet Elton John at the Grammy’s but he did get to meet Dolly a few days before that at the Music Cares show that honored her. Luke almost ran into Dolly by accident and said it was the coolest thing that’s ever happened to him.  

Finally - Tim McGraw sang for the first time with Kane Brown on the Super Bowl Tailgate Party and said, “this kid’s the real deal." Kane said the first song he ever knew was Tim’s 'I Like It, I Love It’ and he says that’s the sound he wanted for his career.
