• GEORGE STRAIT’S ‘THE KING AT KYLE FIELD’ ON TRACK TO SURPASS 2014 AT&T ATTENDANCE RECORD.

    The demand for George Strait‘s only show in Texas in 2024, ‘The King at Kyle Field’ on June 15th, is so great that he is on track to best his own all-time indoor attendance record of 104,793 set in 2014 at his final Cowboy Rides Away finale at AT&T Stadium. The San Antonio Express-News reported the news earlier this week.

    “George has always said he has the best fans, and there’s nothing like a Texas crowd,” shares longtime promoter and founder of Messina Touring Group, Louis Messina. “We knew the show at Kyle Field would be exciting as it’s the first-ever one of its size to be held in the stadium, but even I didn’t expect we’d sell over 100,000 tickets in just a few days. He’ll play to more people in one night than we did at AT&T in 2014! It’s a testament to George’s reputation as an entertainer and performer that here we are, still setting records and personal bests years later.”

    Announced on March 19, it’s the shortest time in Strait’s career that a single show has moved over 100,000 tickets. On June 15th, the King of Country Music will be joined by special guests Parker McCollum and Catie Offerman.  Just fyi–it’s a great present for Parker to perform with the King since it’s also his birthday on June 15th.

    The news follows the recent announcement that Strait will once again team up with Chris Stapleton to perform one-off stadium dates this year with stops at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Chicago’s Soldier Field, Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium and more. Joining Strait and Stapleton for those nine dates are special guests Little Big Town.

    5/4  Lucas Oil Stadium  Indianapolis, IN
    5/11 EverBank Stadium  Jacksonville, FL
    5/25 Jack Trice Stadium  Ames, IA

    Audio / CHRIS STAPLETON SAYS HIS NEW ALBUM HIGHER HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE.

    Download

    Chris Stapleton (Higher album) OC: …on this record. :56
    “One thing that’s probably notable about the record to me is it’s the first one that we’ve put out that doesn’t contain a cover, so there’s no covers on this record. So, in that way, I guess you could say it should be more intrinsically whatever we do. So, there’s definitely some exploration of the edges of what that is, and certainly some moments of stretching out vocally and trying to see what that is. There’s some different stuff on this record, I think, and I think it’s really great. I think it’s something that people will enjoy. I think there’s something on it for everybody, which is kind of always my goal. If you’re a kind of a hardcore traditional country person, there’s a song on there for that somewhere. If you leaned into more of the R&B side of what we do, there’s stuff on there for that. If you like the rock side of things that we do, there’s stuff on there for that. And there’s some really great songs on here. I’m excited about the songs on this record.”

    Chris Stapleton (ACM 2023 win) OC: …take it. :13
    “I’m humbled by it and feel very thankful to the people that voted for me for it and think I’m deserving of that, but I’ll take it. I’ll take it.”

    Audio / JORDAN DAVIS TALKS ABOUT HIS ACM NOMINATED SONG, "NEXT THING YOU KNOW."

    Download

    Jordan Davis (Next Thing You Know) OC: …whole lotta people. :47
    “You know, there’s no chorus to this song. And I think it’s really cool that all we do is repeat ‘Next Thing You Know’ throughout it, but when you’re trying to write songs for a, a job, not putting a chorus on it is a fast way to get it thrown into the garbage can, and I think that makes me more proud of this song in that this is what we wanted to do with it and we just wanted to be as honest as possible in how fast life goes. I remember leaving, telling somebody like when they were like, ‘Did you write today?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah.’ They said, ‘Did you get anything good?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, we wrote a song that doesn’t even have a chorus.’ And I got the look of like, ‘Well, we’ll probably never hear that one,’ and little did I know it would connect with a whole lotta people.”

    Audio / Parker McCollum talks about shooting the video for "Burn It Down."

    Parker McCollum (Burn It Down video) OC: …turned out great. :38
    “Man, the video was pretty easy, actually. I talked to Dustin, the director, and I was like, ‘Man, I feel like wherever we are, we’re just blowing stuff up and so let’s go blow some stuff up and burn it down.’ And he had a great vision out there in New Mexico. We were in the desert, I mean, the desert, desert. You couldn’t, it was like the ocean, but sand; the middle of the ocean but sand. And it was actually really cold in the morning, then it got really hot at night and then the smoke and the fire and they’re wanting me to walk through it over and over, take after take after take. I’m walking through like this chemical burning black smoke. I’m like this is really risking it for a music video, but it turned out great.”

  • PARKER MCCOLLUM KEEPS THE HITS COMING SCORING HIS FOURTH CONSECUTIVE #1 WITH “BURN IT DOWN.”

    Parker McCollum earned his fourth consecutive No. 1 single at Country radio with his explosive hit song, “Burn It Down.” The song tops both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts this week. Written by McCollum, Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose, the smoldering track off his most recent album, Never Enough, follows the album’s first single, the heartbreakingly vulnerable “Handle On You,” which also climbed the charts to take the #1 spot.

    On Sunday, fans got to see Parker take the stage at the 2024 CMT Music Awards to perform “Burn It Down” with special guest and vocal powerhouse, Brittney Spencer. The two ignited the main stage for one of the most unforgettable performances of the evening.

     

    Recently, Parker announced 13 additional tour stops on his current Burn It Down Tour – taking him to the West Coast and some of the biggest venues in the country.

A dedicated road warrior, McCollum made his debut at the famed Grand Ole Opry in 2021 and he already sells out venues across the country (over 40 sold out shows nationwide in 2021) including record-breaking crowds in Dallas (20,000), The Woodlands (16,500), Austin (7500+), Lubbock (7700+), Jackson, MS (5000+), Kearney, NE (3000+), Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, and three nights at Fort Worth’s iconic Billy Bob’s Texas. In March 2022, McCollum made his debut at RODEOHOUSTON to a sold-out crowd with over 73,000 tickets sold, returning to perform at the Opening Day celebration in 2023. He recently made a dream come true with his first-ever Austin City Limits performance, kicking off their 2023 season.

  • PARKER McCOLLUM HEATS UP THE CHARTS WITH HIS FOURTH NO. 1 HIT.

    Parker McCollum scores his fourth No. 1 with “Burn It Down” on the country charts this week.

    “‘Burn It Down’ — Liz Rose and Hilary Lindsey and Lori McKenna — better known as the Love Junkies — were coming over to my house one day and Liz got there first and she walked into the kitchen and she said, ‘What are we going to write today?’ And I said ‘Liz, I’m pretty burnt out on songwriting and the record is done so it could be anything today.’ And she said, ‘Well, don’t say that. Usually this is when you write the best songs.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t think you understand how tired I am. I really don’t want to write,’” says Parker. “But we did anyways and about ten minutes later, I sort of just out of nowhere sang the chorus for ‘Burn It Down.’ It just fell out. And everybody in the room was like ‘Dang, that’s bad ass.’ And so, I would say it’s probably the strongest song on the record and to have those three girls on a cut with me is pretty special. They’ve written some big songs together and they’ve written a lot of really good songs together. And I don’t think I never would have written this song if it wasn’t for them.”

    Catch Parker performing “Burn It Down” with special guest Brittney Spencer on Sunday night’s (April 7th) CMT Music Awards on CBS and streaming live and on demand on Paramount+.

    The father-to-be will be back on his Burn It Down Tour on Thursday (April 11th) in New Orleans, followed by dates in Lake Charles, Louisiana on Friday (April 12th) and Waco, Texas on Saturday (April 13th).

In one social post, Michael wrote, “In the 90s, the height of the bullying almost took me out of the race. My mom was so tired of seeing me come home and lock myself in my room to cry. I needed something strong. I needed a new attitude so I did what I knew to do and that was go to WWE to get strength, to get courage, to get me the proper tools to start ‘opening up a can of whoop ass’…If you told that bullied kid that he’d be singing at one of the BIGGEST WRESTLEMANIAS EVER! If you told him he’d meet Triple H and The Rock, and so many others, I’d laugh and say ‘yeah right.’ You’re never too old to see childhood dreams come true.” The Grammy-nominated duo also performed at the huge event.

    Darius Rucker was spotted in the stands in Cleveland, Ohio for the women’s final four to watch the South Carolina Gamecocks win Friday night (April 5th) to advance to Sunday’s (April 7th) championship game against the Iowa Hawkeyes. He wasn’t the only famous face in the crowd; Ted Lasso‘s Jason SudekisMachine Gun Kelly and Kylie Kelce, the wife of Super Bowl star and Cleveland Heights native Jason Kelce.

    “We would always have the Easter Egg Hunt before church. You know, my mom, she would dress us in these ridiculous, pastel-colored, gosh, good Lord, I’m sorry for saying this, but the worst part about Easter for me is some of the photos I have of what my mom dressed us in. It was hideous! But yeah, that was it growing up. We would have our Easter Egg Hunt, and I think for me early on, and probably like a lot of kids, Easter was another Sunday where it was a very mini, mini Christmas. We’d get some candy, every once in a while, we’d get a present, something that we wanted, we’d go to church, and everybody looked great. It was like the day to wear the new dress or the guys had these crazy ties on or something like that. And it really wasn’t until, I think, I was able to kinda hit my high school years and kind of start to strengthen my faith that I realized how special that holiday was.”

    TAE: “Easters growing up for the Dye fam, my side, is  when I was younger, we’d go to my grandparents a lot and we’d do the whole Easter egg hunt and we’d go to church. My parents would always dress us up in these really cute springy outfits. But, yeah, Easter with family is always so much fun.” MADDIE: “Our Easter was very similar. My grandma would always get us this white chocolate cross with little flowers on it. It was so delicious. And me and my sister typically had matching dresses, which annoyed me at the time, but looking back it was precious. But Easter for us, Tae and I love us some Jesus! That is our favorite dude ever! (TAE: “That’s what Easter means.”) And so Easter is all about praising Jesus for his sacrifice so that we can know God and Him and just live a life full of purpose and hope and joy.”

    In its second year in Texas, Parker McCollum and Friends: ACM Lifting Lives LIVE, Presented by Choctaw Casinos & Resorts will raise money and awareness for ACM Lifting Lives, which works to improve lives through the power of music with a specific focus on health-related initiatives that use music therapy as a way of healing.

    “You know, it’s in Texas, so that makes me excited. It’s our only show in DFW all of 2024. And when they asked, it was an easy yes. I mean, you get to bring your friends, and I love to play golf. You get to swing the golf club. It’s at Top Golf. You know, you get to go and have a good time, and the time you’re spending is going to a great cause, and you’re rallying a bunch of people together to really make a difference in a lot of lives. So, that was an easy yes from me and to get to host it and kind of get to put my stamp on it is quite the honor, and I’m looking forward to it.”
