Country Music News for May 9, 2019

Garth Brooks has another stadium show on the books. He’ll play at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho on July 20th.

Tickets go on sale May 17th. He’ll play Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on May 18th.

Randy Travisreleases his memoir, Forever and Ever, Amen: A Memoir of Music, Faith and Braving the Storms of Life, on May 14th.

Randy suffered a massive stroke in 2013 that affected his speech, but he still manages to communicate with his wife Mary. She tells People, “Our communication is between hearts now, and not lips.”

The couple, who live in Texas, spend their days going for walks on their property and attending bible study.

Randy celebrated his 60th birthday on May 4th.

The Highwomen — the supergroup of Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris and Amanda Shires — have booked their first official show, and added a member.

They’ll perform at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island on July 26th. There might be a couple of dates to follow that show, since both Carlile and Morris have gaps in their summer tours between the 26th and August 1st.

The Highwomen are also now a four-piece group, as Nashville singer-songwriter Natalie Hemby — best known for songs by Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town — has joined. The Highwomen were in the studio back in February and March working on their debut album, which has no release date as of yet.

Country music fans know how beautiful Kacey Musgraves is. Now the world is about to know, too.

She’s signed with IMG Modeling agency, which also represents some of the biggest names in the fashion industry, like Bella and Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Hailey Bieber and Lily Aldridge.

Chris was born in Webster City and raised in Charles City. As a young kid, he would always be caught singing along to songs on the radio. He says he's good at karaoke but we think otherwise. ;) In his free time, he enjoys beginning new projects at home and hardly ever finishing them. Chris lives in Charles City with his wife Vicki, daughter Brynlee and son Jaxon.
