George Strait gives fans what they want in Nashville  2014-03-23
George Strait made his farewell stop in Nashville, TN's Bridgestone arena where a sold-out crowd were waiting with electric enthusiasm to hear 'The King' perform one last time on a tour. As in his previous shows, the entertainer emerged onto a center stage before the concert began.

"I hope y'all don't have anywhere to go anytime soon because we have a lot of songs to play for you," he said to more roars, "some old songs … and a few surprises." - Quote via Tennessean.com

Strait who has had 60 country radio chart-topper tunes, couldn't reach even half of the collection in the show. There were no extra bells and whistles- the show contained the icon performing his music while he moved around the stage. Opening act Sheryl Crow came back out to perform a couple of songs with Strait, as well as surprise supstars Eric Church who performed "Cowboys Like Us" & Kenny Chesney who sang "Amarillo By Morning".

Luke Bryan gets the top spot with Spring Break EP  2014-03-21
Luke Bryan's sixth vacation EP 'Spring Break 6...Like We Ain't Ever' made its debut at the top of Billboard's Country Albums chart. The project sold over 74,296 copies in its first week, which totals the 'Spring Break' album series at more than 825,000 copies.  The 2014 edition also claimed No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums Chart.

“We kind of write ‘em with college kids and Spring Break and that whole party theme in mind,” Bryan notes. “I think it’s fun to put out songs just to get some new music out there for fans and more opportunities for them to have different types of music from me.” (quote via TasteofCountry.com)

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are planning to make a move back to Nashville  2014-03-20
It looks like Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood are getting more serious about making an official return to Country music. The two have announced they are moving back to Nashville.  

“I have loved living in Oklahoma. It’s been a great place to raise our girls, and the thing I’ll miss the most is that I’ve made some of the best friends I’ll ever have. But we’ll always be best friends,” Yearwood tells CMT.

Both singers are moving after Brooks' youngest daughter is off to college in the fall, which gives the power couple an empty nest for the first time.  

“It’s been the right thing to be at home,” explains Yearwood, “But Garth and I both feel like the job of being home every day and going to every soccer practice, that job is coming to an end for us. And so it’s time for us to do the next thing, and we’re excited for whatever’s next for us.”

“Garth and I have always sort of been gypsies. If you do this for a living, home for us is really just where we are together,” Yearwood says sweetly. “There’s an energy about Nashville that I love and I miss. And it’s so awesome right now. It has a new energy that’s so cool. And it makes sense because it’s been a bit of a challenge to not live there and to have to fly in and out for work.”
Keith Urban gives a young fan something special  2014-03-18

Keith Urban got more adorable at his show for the 2014 Houston Rodeo. The young girl got a front row seat of Keith Urban who performed his hit 'Kiss a Girl,' in the middle of a crowd then ending the song by giving the young fan a kiss on the cheek. The fans went insane as the singer concluded his hit tune. 

Urban himself has two young daughters with wife Nicole Kidman, so this is probably him missing his two young ones.

The entertainer is currently busy judging on ‘American Idol,’ but he’ll take his country prowess to the road in July on his 2014 Raise ‘Em Up Tour, which also features guests Jerrod Niemann and Brett Eldredge.
