Luke Bryan Cancels Final Farm Tour Show Over Weather Concerns: Luke Bryan's 2023 "Farm Tour" came to an unfortunate close over the weekend because of bad weather. On social media, Luke posted, "Eyota, MN Farm Tour, we are onsite and have been working to make this show happen for tonight. Unfortunately with impending weather we are having to make the tough decision to cancel the show. The safety of each of you is our first concern and we do not want to jeopardize that in any way. We love Farm Tour and all of you who support these shows and the American Farmer." Refunds were promised to those that purchased tickets. The annual mini-tour not only brings the big-city concert experience to small towns that ordinarily don't host such events, it also provides a boost to those economies and functions as a charity as well. Bayer has joined the Farm Tour as a sponsor to help honor America’s farmers by providing them with access to critical health and nutrition through its #HerestotheFarmer campaign.
Lady A Drops New Song, "Love You Back": It's been a minute since Lady A was on country radio with new music. Their "Like A Lady" hit the Top 20 back in 2021, and then the band stepped back for a bit so band member Charles Kelley could address his issues with alcohol. This year the band, back at full strength, embarked on their "Request Line" tour - and also found time to get back into the studio. On September 8, Lady A thrilled fans with the announcement that new music was coming - and on Friday it did. The single is called "Love You Back"
Frank Ray Releases Spanish-Language EP: Country newcomer Frank Ray is celebrating Spanish Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15) by releasing an all-Spanish language EP. The EP is titled "Raíces (Asi Se Hace)," and consists of five songs. Ray, who is Mexican, says "Releasing a country music EP in Spanish is very noteworthy because the Latin culture can be represented in a way that has not been done in the mainstream music genre for decades. I have the opportunity to bring the Latin flavor to country music fans, but also to bring country music to a whole new audience." The EP is out now.
Jelly Roll Fires Fans And Drivers Up At Texas Motor Speedway: Last week it was announced that Jelly Roll had been named the Grand Marshall of the Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 400 NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway. One of the duties - or perks - with the title is being able to holler out the command for the drivers to fire up their engines. The race was held yesterday and Jelly, as you can imagine, didn't disappoint. Word of advice: do not watch this as your getting ready to pull out of the parking lot at work.
