There is no shortage of excuses to have a good time this weekend. In addition to Earth Day on Sunday, National Record Store Day — which will feature the release of ‘Hell on Heels’ by Pistol Annies on vinyl — is on Saturday. As for today, April 20, it’s a very important day(cough, cough) for friends of Willie Nelson nationwide. In fact, a statue of the famous singer will be revealed at 4:20PM down in Austin, Texas.
April 20 isn’t an official holiday recognized by more stodgy establishments like the US government, but for a certain group of Americans, it’s a de facto Independence Day. Longtime marijuana connoisseur and legalization advocate Willie Nelson has chosen 4/20 as the day to stream his new song ‘Roll Me Up’ on his official website.
Today is considered a major holiday for some country music stars. Of course Willie Nelson is famously celebrating April 20 — a date which is an informal celebration of marijuana — but more than a few others at least recognized its existence. Find out who in this look at the week’s best tweets from country music’s biggest stars.
Hopefully Steel Magnolia‘s Meghan Linsey was able to get out of that restaurant without getting one of Hulk Hogan’s famous leg drops dropped on her from the top rope or the top of the bar. The blonde country singer tweeted the photo shown here, but didn’t explain why or where she was hanging out with the Hulkster.
Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum has a puppy that looks like a living teddy bear. Jake Owen has two slobbery bulldogs. Who’s to say that one is cuter than the other, however? You can make that decision on your own at the end of this list of the cutest pets in country music.
While it’s possible that Sugarland‘s tour manager resisted delaying the start of the tragic Indiana State Fair show on the band’s behalf last August, the conversation was never relayed to Jennifer Nettles. That’s the crux of a partial transcript of Nettles’s deposition obtained by the Indianapolis Star.
When you’ve been around for over 30 years and put almost 60 songs on top of the Billboard charts, it’s probably difficult to surprise people, right? Actually, if you’ve made it that far it’s because you’ve turned surprises into a career. George Strait‘s new song ‘Drinkin’ Man’ is a gut-punch one dials up again and again.
Blake Shelton made a late charge, but his song ‘Drink on It’ fell a few votes short during last week’s Showdown. ‘Good Girl’ by Carrie Underwood is now a three-time winner, meaning she needs just one more win to have the song retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
One year ago today (April 13), Holly Bobo — the cousin of country singer Whitney Duncan — went missing from her home in Decatur County, Tenn. With very little still known about her disappearance, Duncan took to Twitter with a heavy heart to ask for prayers during what is obviously a very difficult day for her family.
