Garth Brooks has beaten his personal record for tickets sold in Atlanta. The record was previously set at the Omni, March 13th -17th, 1996, with 81,902 paid tickets. Garth has now surpassed that number and is still selling. Garth is now the only artist to ever sell seven consecutive shows at the Philips Arena. The previous record was held by Elvis Presley, with four shows.

Kenny Chesney played to over 40,000 fans on Saturday at his Flora-Bama show on the beach. Fans came as far away as Oregon, Ohio, South Carolina, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Arizona to hear Chesney play his only concert of 2014. Chesney’s 32-song set lasted two and a half hours. Mixing old favorites with some new songs. Filmed by Shaun Silva for a TV special this fall, Kenny and band took the tailgate vibe of his shows and distilled it. Bikinis, shorts, tank tops, sunburns and ball caps, the dress code was casual and the mood was great. (Photo Credit: www.newstinder.com )

Brad Paisley has been leaking songs from his new album, Moonshine in the Trunk, via Twitter for the past couple of weeks and he took it to a new level as he made a trip to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida Saturday to launch a new song from a historic launch pad. Paisley stood on the surface of Launch Pad 39B, where a Saturn V rocket once launched three American astronauts to the moon, as he sent out a tweet to leak, "American Flag on the Moon." He tweeted, "I’m at @NASA's Apollo launch pad in FL! Leaking my new song, American Flag on the Moon." and included a link to the song.

The announcement of the final nominees for “The 48th Annual CMA Awards” will take over New York City on September 3 with host and CMA Award winner Darius Rucker.  At daybreak, Rucker will perform "Homegrown Honey," the debut single from his upcoming new album to be released in early 2015. Rucker will also announce the final nominees in five CMA Awards categories live from the Good Morning America studios in the heart of Times Square on ABC.
