Luke Bryan may sing about trucks and girls and drinking beer on a few of his songs, but don't you dare call his music "bro country."  Luke tells ABC News he finds that term aggravating and derogatory of the country music genre as a whole.  He says, "I mean, listen to the whole album and don't judge me on one song."  Luke's fans now have five hit singles to judge him on from his latest album, Crash My Party. 

Glen Campbell's Musical Legacy and Alzheimer's Disease Chronicled 

Glen Campbell's Goodbye Tour is captured in the new documentary film, Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me, opening in select theaters Friday. The movie chronicles Glen's diagnosis with Alzheimer's Disease in 2011 and the 151 shows he played until the disease made it impossible for him to go on performing last year.  Scenes from The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour variety show on CBS and his acting role in the western True Grit are included in the movie along with vintage performances of his signature hits.  The film also shines a light on Glen's role as a session guitarist on classic songs from The Beach BoysElvis PresleyFrank Sinatra and many more.

Trisha Yearwood is the latest country star to make a cameo appearance on the ABC TV drama Nashville. The show will host its own fictional version of the CMA Awards, and Yearwood will appear. Trisha told Rolling Stone Country that while she and Garth don't watch much TV, she approved of the popular show, "I especially love to watch it for the city. They’re at the Bluebird, or I know that drummer, you see people that you know. Then you get sucked into the story and you’re waiting to see what happens."

James Otto is back with new music, a new sound and even a new team around him. The country crooner, known for his smash hit "Just Got Started Lovin’ You" and for co-writing the ACM and CMA Song of the Year, "In Color," is returning with new music. After taking a step back from the spotlight to focus on his family and hone his songwriting, Otto returned to the studio to record music that he feels reveals a renewed promise he made to himself long ago: to create his own distinctive sound in country music.

Hunter Hayes is kicking off the week leading up to "The 48th Annual CMA Awards" next week with a free nighttime concert in downtown Nashville on Monday, November 3 as part of Hayes’ involvement with the USO’s "Every Moment Counts" campaign. The street party commemorates one of many "moments" in honor of Sergeant First Class Tyler Arnold and his family, who will be in attendance at the show along with servicemen and women currently stationed at nearby Fort Campbell. SFC Arnold has been deployed six times, including multiple trips to Iraq and Afghanistan, and is being recognized by the USO for his service, sacrifice and strength during the “moments” Arnold missed with his wife and two young daughters during his deployments.

The ACM Lifting Lives Club Shows will kick off with two dates headlined by Tyler Farr in January 2015. More clubs and artists will be announced in the coming months with dates through Spring of 2015. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 31st for the first two shows headlined by Farr, taking place in January at The Rave in Milwaukee and at Joe’s Bar in Chicago. The money raised goes to fund organizations that work to improve lives through the power of music.

When Jerrod Niemann became a Back Seat Buckers Celebrity Stock Contractor in January, he aptly named the bull he selected "High Noon" after his third major album, which was released in March of this year. High Noon the bull has now lived up to the success of his namesake, winning the 2014 Back Seat Buckers grand prize and $100,000 in prize money at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. As Niemann announced earlier this year, he will be donating all the bull’s earnings to his nonprofit, Free the Music USA (FTMUSA), an organization dedicated to supporting music education and collecting used instruments for children and teens in need, named for his 2012 album, Free The Music
