Scotty McCreey was surprised on Sunday night when he was invited to become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry by Garth Brooks!  Garth presented Scotty with a wrapped gift as if for it to be an early Christmas present but sharing that he had to wait to open it because what was inside hasn't arrived yet and "it is merely an invitation".  "I probably won't be sleeping tonight" was all Scotty could share about the invitation.

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood performed John Lennon's "Imagine" during the memorial service for former First Lady Rosalyn Carter in Atlanta on Tuesday. Trisha sang lead vocals, while Garth played an acoustic guitar and sang backing vocals.

Garth and Trisha stepped in as the official hosts for the 2023 Carter Work Project, which focused on building affordable homes in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Kelsea Ballerini, Brooks & Dunn, Riley Green and Mickey Guyton are just some of the stars who will be performing at the annual All for the Hall charity benefit show in December. Hardy, the War and Treaty, Patty Loveless and Trisha Yearwood will also be part of the evening. This year's theme is "The Song Remembers When." Artists will play a song that defines a powerful memory from their personal life, in addition to performing a fan-favourite. Over the years, the All for the Hall event has raised $4.3 million for the Country Music Hall of Fame and its affiliated education programs. Keith Urban and Vince Gill will co-host the benefit show on December 5th at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
Blake Shelton is the executive producer on a new Hallmark movie, Time For Her To Come Home For Christmas. The collection dates back to 2018, beginning with Time For Me To Come Home For Christmas, followed by Time For Us To Come Home For Christmas, Time For You To Come Home For Christmas and Time For Him To Come Home For Christmas. The movies are all based on Blake's song "Time For Me To Come Home," from his 2012 album Cheers, It's Christmas, which featured a cameo from his mom, Dorothy Shackleford. The movie focuses on Carly, a young musician who heads to a small town to work with a church choir for the holiday season. But the holidays take on a different meaning when she meets a young Army veteran with a talent for singing. The movie premieres on November 30th.
Dolly Parton's Rockstar debuted at number one on several Billboard charts, including Top Rock and Alternative Albums, Top Country Albums, Top Album Sales, Top Current Album Sales and Independent Albums charts. "Wow, this is a big thrill! I owe a thank you to the fans who have always been there for me," says Dolly. "Their support made this achievement possible. I'd also like to thank my producer Kent Wells, all the wonderful artists, musicians, and engineers who brought their talents to this project."
