Toby Keith has a new CD coming out next month on the 24th and I just learned that the deluxe edition of "Clancy's Tavern" is going to feature something pretty cool...four live covers! Toby will be doing Waylon Jennings' "High Time (You Quit Your Lowdown Ways), Buck Owens' "Truck Drivin' Man," Three Dog Night's "Shambala" and Chuck Berry's "Memphis." The tracks were recorded live during the 2010 "Incognito Bandito" concert at New York City's Fillmore.
NBC should just rename themselves Lady A TV for the next week. Lady Antebellum will be all over the peacock network. They're doing the National Anthem before Sunday's (9/11) New York Jets-Dallas Cowboys game. This follows their performance tonight (9/9) at NFL Kickoff 2011 in Green Bay, also televised on NBC. And they're set to make their Saturday Night Live debut Oct. 1 on, yep, NBC. Not done yet...they'll be promoting the release of their new CD Own The Night, hitting stores next Tuesday (9/13), with an appearance on (yes, NBC's) Today Show.
Congratulations to Randy Houser! He got married over the long weekend in a Caribbean ceremony. Randy married Jessa Lee Yantz in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The couple had 20 close friends and family members surrounding them at sunset when they exchanged vows that they wrote themselves.
