Brad Paisley, Reba McEntire: Send-Off for an On-Air Friend

Gerry House, who’s been the morning man to the stars as a fixture on Nashville’s morning radio for most of the last three decades, signed off Wednesday on his very last shift for WSIX-FM. It’s a retirement from regular morning shows, but not a retirement from his life’s work as a writer and comedic talent. Gerry announced his departure some three months ago, and the stars have either called in or come by the studio in droves over the last week to wish him well. Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban have had funny and/or sentimental moments. On Wednesday’s shift, the well-wishers included Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire. WSIX Vice President Tom English announced the station was renaming the studio as “The House,” in honor of Gerry and his House Foundation show. “It’s a very, very sad day for Nashville, but a great day for you,” Brad said.

The Country Music Hall of Fame, which will receive all the proceeds from that last performance, is offering packages ranging from $250-$750 that include passes to the show and — in the most expensive package — an opportunity to have a picture taken with Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn the day of their duo-ending concert.
