Sam Hunt is set to perform live at the ACM Awards Party For A Cause, benefiting ACM Lifting Lives, on Tuesday, August 24th at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater.


In this past week’s Sunday Sitdown for NBC’s Today Show, Willie Geist traveled to a recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee, for a conversation with Luke Bryan. The “Waves” singer opens up about the moments in his life highlighted in his new IMDb TV docuseries “My Dirt Road Diary.” Luke also shares an early listen to a personal, new single called “Songs You Never Heard,” written to his late brother, Chris. Check out the full interview below.

Chris Stapleton will be a special guest on Taylor Swift‘s upcoming Red (Taylor’s Version), which will be available beginning November 19th. He’s featured on the song, “I Bet You Think About Me” (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault). She revealed the upcoming guests and track list on her socials after fans guessed her word scramble clues as she “unlocked the vault.”


Maddie and Tae kicked off season two of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s “Words & Music at Home” series, developed to help aspiring songwriters of all ages learn the art and craft of writing songs, any time, anywhere. The duo’s Madison Font and Taylor Kerr write many of their own songs, including hits “Die from a Broken Heart” and “Girl in a Country Song.” During their “Words & Music at Home” episode, the two shared insights into their personally inspired songwriting approach with the Museum’s Adam Ollendorff.


Brothers Osborne will release the music video for their current single “I’m Not For Everyone” tomorrow (Thursday, August 12th). The clip stars actor-comedian-Instagram star, Leslie Jordan. Check out his Instagram sneak peek of the video below.
