Sara Evans is set to guest star and perform on ABC’s Nashville this coming Wednesday.  Now we’ve learned that Trisha Yearwood will also be making a guest appearance on the ABC drama.  According to Rolling Stone Country, Trisha will appear on the show in an episode that features many of the cast members at the CMA Awards.  She is a presenter at the faux awards and she says, “This is good; it will be good rehearsal for me for the actual CMA Awards in a few weeks.”


Trisha tells Rolling Stone Country that Nashville is one of the few shows she watches on TV because she loves seeing familiar people or Nashville spots on the show.  “They’re at the Bluebird, or I know that drummer, you see people that you know. Then you get sucked into the story and you’re waiting to see what happens.”  She laughs and says, “Now that I know a little bit ahead about what’s happening, I’ve got to have some conversations with the script writers. I’ve got some changes that need to be made!”


Trisha’s appearance on Nashville will air on November 19th on ABC, two days after the release of her new album, PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit.


Eric Church and Wife Katherine Launch Chief Cares Charity Foundation

Eric Church and his wife Katherine will soon welcome their second child, another little boy, into the world, and as parents, kids are very near and dear to their hearts, which is why they recently formed their own charity foundation called Chief Cares. The foundation is administered by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and benefits several children’s and animal charities.  So far Chief Cares has used donations to aid underprivileged families and children throughout Tennessee and Eric’s home state of North Carolina.  They’ve also helped an orphanage in Nepal get beds and clothing, and offered schooling to children that would otherwise never get the chance; delivered bibles and aid to Haiti, and helped fund the Humane Society’s no-kill animal shelters with funds that go towards operational costs.


Fans can donate to Chief Cares directly here, or you can purchase Chief Cares Platinum Seats to one of Eric’s Outsiders World Tour dates, and a portion of the purchase price will be donated to Chief Cares.

Little Big Town appeared on The View yesterday to promote their new album, Pain Killer, which is out now.  During their interview, Kimberly Schlapman revealed that she will be dressing up as a character from Frozen for Halloween.  Kimberly’s daughter, Daisy, is seven years old and she wants to dress up as Anna, Elsa’s younger sister, so, Kimberly will dress up as Elsa and her husband will be the snowman, Olaf.


The group also revealed the Sigourney Weaver bus game they play sometimes, after a few cocktails that they borrowed from Lady Antebellum. It’s a version of Name That Tune where a person sings a song, but they have to replace all of the lyrics with Sigourney Weaver.  Phillip Sweet demonstrated by singing Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” but only singing Sigourney Weaver’s name in place of the lyrics. (You can hear the demonstration of the game at about the 3:40 mark in the video below.)


After their interview, Little Big Town performed their top ten single, “Day Drinking,” the lead single off of Pain Killer.

Brantley Gilbert Knows His Acting Chops May Be Limited

Brantley Gilbert had a small cameo last season on ABC’s Nashville and while he enjoyed the experience, he’s not exactly sure if serious acting is in his future.  “Did you see that episode of Nashville?” laughs Brantley.  I can do me okay.  I don’t know how I’d be at playin’ somebody else.”


Of course he’s willing to keep an open mind about the possibility of future acting gigs. Brantley says, “If the right part came across the table and it was somethin’ that I could play and kinda do me in, I might give it a shot.”  But he says, “My priorities right now are set on music, it’s where my heart’s at.  If a role came across that I really felt like might be fun to play, or might be somethin’ fun to try I’m open to try about anything. [But] I wouldn’t wanna do it and then have people confused about what my true passion was, or what my true priority was, and that’ll always be music.”


For now Brantley is busy touring with his Let It Ride Tour, which will keep him on the road through the end of November.

Florida Georgia Line just released their new album, Anything Goes, and although it doesn’t feature any collaborations, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have a list of people they would love to collaborate with in the future.  “Garth Brooks would be a dream come true, for sure,” says Brian Kelley. “We’ve been fans of him since we were young and he’s definitely had a big influence on us that would just be an incredible experience for sure.”


Outside of country music, Tyler Hubbard says, “I’ve always thought it would be cool to collaborate with Lil Wayne and we’ve always thought it would be cool to collaborate with Wiz Khalifa. Honestly just anybody that we feel like fits the part and somebody that we would want to work with.”


Anything Goes is Florida Georgia Line’s first album to debut at #1, selling 197,105 copies in its first week of release.
