Miranda Lambert is taking her personal Airstream travel trailer for a trip across America to promote her upcoming Platinum album and giving fans a chance to listen to the new work. Miranda’s vintage 1954 Flying Cloud Airstream, dubbed "Wanda the Wanderer," will be topped by a 6-foot-wide, 3-foot-tall aluminum crown, adorned with crystals. The Airstream will make stops in seven cities across the country on the "Platinum Across America" Tour, offering listening sessions for select fans to preview the album. "Platinum Across America" kicks off May 20 in Los Angeles and wraps in Philadelphia on May 31 before heading to Nashville for CMA Music Fest and release week for the new album, Platinum.

Toby Keith has been hosting the annual "Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic" for more than a decade. This year the "11th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic" is set for this weekend, May 16-17, and will feature a live auction, nearly 100 silent auction items, fabulous food, great entertainment, and a celebrity filled round of golf. The event benefits OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home-away-from-home for pediatric cancer patients, and is the largest event The Toby Keith Foundation hosts. Since officially opening on January 7, 2014, the Korral has had more than 75 family visits with stays ranging from one day to eight weeks.

At 81 years old, Willie Nelson is releasing a new album called Band Of Brothers next month. The new work features nine original songs, including the album’s title track. Nelson told Rolling Stone, "It’s good to be writing again." In addition, the 14-track project features a few cover songs, including Vince Gill‘s "Whenever You Come Around" and Bill Anderson‘s "‘The Songwriters."

Dierks Bentley has teamed up with Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine in a multi-year partnership across tour, media and digital platforms. The moonshine maker will provide a tailgate party for fans in a throwback 1920's style saloon with a modern country vibe featuring signature Ole Smoky drinks, music and specialty merchandise at participating venues on Bentley's "Riser Tour." Dierks says, "When I first moved to Nashville, I lived down at the Station Inn and really dove head first into the bluegrass community…I used to beg my way into pickin' parties with those guys because I was eaten up with that sound and that lifestyle. And when you surround yourself with banjos and fiddles, there's bound to be some shine there too."
