Win from Joe Nichols tomorrow, Plus why isn't Tim singing? and Lady A discuss the Lost finale in Tonight's Tweets

Joe Nichols is going to be on the View tomorrow morning and he just tweeted this:
Be sure to pay close attention to @theviewtv tomorrow morning... there may be prizes involved!

Tim McGraw is coming to the VB Amphitheater Sunday, July 25th and he talked about the plan for his new tour recently. If you saw the Soul2Soul tour, the stage is scaled down but still impressive. Tim says, “I like bells and whistles as much as anybody. Sometimes I’ll feel like that’s what we need. But it’s not about trying to outdo — or underdo — my last stage. It’s about what I feel at the moment. I just want people to get back to our music. I mean, it’s tough to say that with a straight face because this is no wallflower stage; it’s very modern and even spectacular. But it has the ability to take it way down and being intimate with the audience is the key to this tour."

Speaking of Tim, he's working on a new movie that he will co-star with Gwyneth Paltrow in. And Gwyneth and some of his co-workers will be singing in it...but not Tim. Huh?! The movie is about a faded Country performer in the midst of a comeback. Tim isn't playing the singer though...Gwyneth is. Tim plays James Canter, Kelly’s husband and manager, whose challenges include guiding his wife’s career at a pivotal time while coping with overtures made toward her. I still think he could've broken into song at some point! How can you cast a country singer in a movie about a country singer and NOT have him sing? I don't get it.

Carrie Underwood has launched the Temporary Home Fund to support Tennessee flood relief efforts. The charity grants Underwood receives from the ACM as reigning Entertainer Of The Year will be earmarked for the Fund and will be distributed to those in need through MusiCares and The Community Foundation Of Middle Tennessee (CFMT). You can make a $10 donation by texting "ACM" to 501501. Online donations can also be made at ACMliftinglives.org and CBS.com/give.
