Garth Brooks' oldest daughter, Taylor, is asking for help in locating her pickup truck that was stolen on her dad's birthday (Feb. 7). Taylor recently posted a picture of the truck on Facebook and a message that said, "My grandfather's truck that was passed down to me, was stolen on Saturday (February 7th)." She went on to describe the truck as a black 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 extended cab truck with a "tan-ish" bottom. She went on to write, "It has my Grandpa Raymond's Marine sticker in the upper left side of the back window; & an OSU (Oklahoma State) sticker on the right side." Taylor says the truck was last seen in North Tulsa, Oklahoma around 11th Street and Memorial Drive. She also stated that the Owasso/Tulsa police have already been notified about the stolen truck.
Toby Keith's latest single "Drunk Americans" is all about how alcohol can help people overcome social barriers, and there's no better way to break down barriers than with some good times and a few pick-up lines. And that's just what Toby aims to do this summer on his new "Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour." The tour will kick off in Mountain View, California on May 29 and will continue through the end of September. The "Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour" already has close to 30 dates on the books, to include an August show at Jiffy Lube Live, and a visit to Virginia Beach in September.
With more than 100 albums to his name and sixty years in the music industry, Willie Nelson has become one of the most iconic artists to ever grace the stage. But Willie's influence has gone far beyond the realm of music, as he's also become a renowned author, poet, actor, and activist. Now, Nelson will share every facet of his incredible story in his new memoir It's A Long Story: My Life, coming to bookshelves on May 5. Written with award-winning author David Ritz, the memoir gives a detailed history behind the man known as the Red Headed Stranger and includes Willie's never-before-told stories behind the making of his most successful records. Nelson also shares memorable portraits of his close friends and collaborators Ray Charles, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Ray Price, and Waylon Jennings and tells road stories of his travels with the country supergroup The Highwaymen. In the book, Willie also delves into his history with alcohol and tobacco abuse, which lead to his five-decade-long use of marijuana and his advocacy for its benefits.

Church decided that instead of pulling the plug at last minute on the show he would give the crowd something special and promised them more to come. He said on the basic stripped down stage, "Here's the deal: Yesterday we had the stomach flu strike our band, our crew, everyone. We had no one to hang video, lights, nothing. But I'm still here.

Earlier this month when Dierks Bentley announced his "2015 Sounds Of Summer Tour," he surprised tour mates by bringing them to Percy Priest Lake in Nashville to take part in Bentley's annual Polar Plunge. But Kip Moore didn't take too kindly to being forced to jump in the lake's icy waters and he began to plot his revenge. Kip knew he had to hit Dierks where it hurt, so he went after his beloved Chevy Truck, "Big White." In a video posted on YouTube, Moore documents the prank. Team Kip went to work on "Big White" using markers to write all over the truck, then filled the cab with Styrofoam peanuts
