Eric Church will perform the post-race concert on July 13th during the IndyCar Weekend taking place July 12th – 14th at the Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa.

Josh Ross has released a performance video for his song, “Truck Girl.”


Reba McEntire just loves her Tater Tots. In fact, she and her boyfriend, actor Rex Linn, have nicknames for each other: she is Tater Tot and Rex is Sugar Tot. So, Sonic Drive-In has partnered with the Queen of Country on a new combo meal, Reba’s Sweetheart Meal, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The special meal will be available beginning Monday (February 12th) at participating restaurants. The limited-edition meal, which includes a Sonic cheeseburger with everything on it, a side order of Tots and a new Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake, will be available through March 3rd.  “My boyfriend Rex and I have known each other since 1991,” she says in a press release. “After getting reacquainted in 2020 at a dinner, he found out I love tots! That started my nickname, ‘Tater Tot.’ My little sister, Susie, gave Rex the name ‘Sugar Tot.’ So now, we’re The Tots! Sugar and Tater. We both love tots, especially at SONIC! They are our absolute favorite. We even spent our most memorable Valentine’s Day dinner at SONIC and will do the same this year. We encourage others to make special Valentine’s memories at SONIC this year too! Just like Sugar and Tater.”


Kacey Musgraves just announced her new album, Deeper Well, which will come out March 15th. Now she’s offering a special Zine packaging that has photos, lyrics, thoughts behind the songs and the album CD. It will be available on her website, at Barnes & Noble Bookstores and Indie record stores.

New merch for Deeper Well is also available.


Kacey Musgraves will appear on NBC’s TODAY Show on March 15th.


Alan Jackson announced on his socials that he and his wife Denise will become grandparents for the second time later this year. His daughter Mattie and her husband Connor Smith are expecting their first child — a boy — in June. Daughter Ali gave birth to a son — Jackson Alvie Bradshaw — in 2022.
