Record release parties happen all the time in Nashville, but I’m guessing this is a first. KACEY MUSGRAVES had drag queens lip-synch songs from her new album, “Pageant Material”, which is out next Tuesday.
It was at a gay bar named Play. Kacey emceed and brought out each performer who strutted and danced .
ZAC BROWN wants to make sure his fans get their money’s worth when they see him in concert, so he forbids his crew from getting sloppy drunk.
He says, quote, “I put a rule down about seven years ago that nobody could drink before or during the show. So our whole crew of 105 people out on the road . . . nobody’s allowed to drink or party or do anything until after the show’s over.
“Because there’s nothing worse than spending a bunch of money to go to a concert and you see a dude that’s half-drunk on stage.”
I get a warm feeling inside just thinking about Cracker Barrel’s “Homemade Chicken n’ Dumplins”.
So I’m totally feeling SAM HUNT when he says, “Cracker Barrel is my favorite restaurant, hands down. Regardless. From the finest steak house down to the best hamburger place, they’re my favorite because they do the best with good southern cooking.”
ALAN JACKSON’s new song is called “Jim and Jack and Hank” . . . and all I can say is it’s damn good to hear from him again. Check it out at RollingStone.com.
