Eric Church Kicked Off T.G. Sheppard Tour

Country maverick Eric Church lost his opening slot on The T.G. Sheppard Tour after a raucous performance at a Branson retirement home on Tuesday night. Sheppard personally delivered the bad news to Church around 10pm as the two singers were lugging their sound equipment back to their shared "tour bus," a 1989 Mazda Miata parked behind the venue. The termination came after weeks of tension caused by Church's tendency to extend his contractually-mandated thirty-minute opening set into a loose … [Read more...]

Willie Nelson has announced that his next studio album will be a collection of duets with you. He plans to show up at your house around 6ish this evening to begin work on the project.

Despondent, Old Blue Chair Drowns Self in Caribbean Sea

Early this morning, scuba divers discovered a weather-worn wicker chair on the ocean floor just off the coast of the Caribbean island of St. John. After extricating the chair from the seaweed in which it had become entangled and hauling it to shore, one of the scuba divers recognized it as a late companion of country singer Kenny Chesney. The chair was last seen alive yesterday, when several islanders noticed it hobbling along the beach toward a remote, cliffy area. Although no note has been … [Read more...]

Kenny Chesney Denies Rumor That He Prefers Éclairs

In a recent interview with Food & Wine magazine, Kenny Chesney denied a longstanding rumor that he prefers the French pastry known as the éclair to the more conventional American ring-shaped donut.

Pressed for further information, Chesney added: "As the career grows and … [Read more...]

The Grand Ole Opry announced today that members of the highly-unacclaimed country group The Lost Trailers will become its newest inductees this Saturday, February 14.

Busy Day After All Nashville Area Grandfathers Die

All of Nashville erupted into activity on Monday following the inexplicable death of all Nashville-area grandfathers on Sunday.

This sudden citywide … [Read more...]

Kenny Rogers Arrested for Impersonating Kenny Rogers

Country legend Kenny Rogers was arrested for falsely identifying himself as country legend Kenny Rogers this morning. Pulled over for running a red light in downtown Nashville, Rogers told the officer his name and handed over his license and registration. Since the singer had not personally gone to the DMV to renew his license since 1994, the picture on the ID was some fifteen years out of date and bore little resemblance to the baby-skinned, expressionless 70-year-old of today. Reports … [Read more...]
