it's Rascal Flatts farewell tour & Blake & Gwen perform together on the grammys

With ‘Dive Bar’ still climbing the charts, Garth Brooks has now appeared on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs for the past five decades. Beating him tho are Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson who appeared in six different decades. George Jones made it seven starting in the 50s.

Rascal Flatts farewell tour will kick off June 11. They’ve been in the business 20 years and Gary LeVox said, “the greatest feeling ever is being told our music’s been the soundtrack to people’s lives.” Jay DeMarcus added, “there’s no sadness, just new chapters, new journeys and new beginnings.”

Jon Pardi has a picture on his phone of Little Jimmy Dickens at the Ryman two days before his death. In a pew over Jimmy’s shoulder there’s a seated man wearing a cowboy hat and an old-fashioned suit with a large musical note only you can see through where the face should be. Jimmy’s caretaker said the place was empty that day. Jon and others think it’s Hank Williams.

Finally - Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani perform together on the GRAMMYs January 26.
