Reba McEntire Co-Hosts Top 20

Reba McEntire is making an impact in all sorts of locations these days, and she’ll join Nan Kelley this weekend to co-host the latest edition of GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown. Fans who bought tickets to last Tuesday’s We’re All For The Hall concert in Nashville got a chance to see Reba honored by Martina McBride, who did a version of one of Reba’s biggest hits, “Is There Life Out There,” with Vince Gill and Keith Urban on guitar and backing vocals. But that’s hardly the only place you can find the iconic redhead. She was a surprise guest on Brooks & Dunn’s very last concert in September, and she’s been tapped to host a Grammy Salute to Loretta Lynn in Nashville on Oct. 12. Reba is an appropriate host for that event, since she’s singing “If You’re Not Gone Too Long” on the album Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute To Loretta Lynn, set for release Nov. 9. That same day, Reba’s own album, All The Women I Am, will also hit the streets. It includes her current hit, “Turn On The Radio,” the No. 10 video on this week’s Top 20. Read More

Keith Urban, Vince Gill Lead All-Star Hall Event

The building that houses country music’s family treasures just got a big infusion of cash. Keith Urban and Vince Gill played hosts Tuesday night at All For The Hall, a multi-artist concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena that raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Country Music Hall of Fame. The arena and the hall share an intersection in Music City, and the artists who paraded across the Bridgestone stage shared a love for the district’s best-known genre. Billy Currington threw judicious moments of vocal ferocity into his version of Kenny Rogers’ “Sweet Music Man,” Martina McBride emulated Reba McEntire well with a few well-placed trills at the close of “Is There Life Out There,” and Dolly Parton resurrected George Jones’ funereal “He Stopped Loving Her Today.” Read More
