ABC/Image Group LAGeorge Strait‘s experiment of playing sixty #1 hits over two nights went so well that he plans to do it again.

King George first tried out the new strategy earlier this month at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Now he plans to do it again when he next plays Sin City on July 28 and 29.

“Back when we announced 2 Nights of Number 1’s, I said if the fans wanted to hear more, we would look at it,” the Country Music Hall of Famer says. “Well, we heard them loud and clear. This is something they want more of, so that’s what they will get.”

Tickets for the July dates are on sale now at StraitToVegas.com. Cam is set to open the shows.

ABC/Image Group LABrad Paisley took the stage at the world-famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge Sunday night in downtown Nashville, celebrating the release of Love and War, along with many of the superstars who appear on his new album.

Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer John Fogerty joined Brad for his ninety-minute-plus set, contributing his own hits, as well as the pair’s anthem of support for America’s veterans, which is the record’s title track. Country Music Hall-of-Famer Bill Anderson and hip-hop/R&B artist and super-producer Timbaland also stopped by to show off their contributions to Love and War.

Earlier in the evening, Brad unveiled the visual album that accompanies his eleventh studio effort, which is said to be the first of its kind in country music.

Brad also revealed he’ll be the face of Sarah Cannon’s Band Against Cancer campaign this year, with his #1 hit “Today” serving as its official song. The organization that works to fight cancer is inspired by legendary Opry comedian Minnie Pearl, whose real name was Sarah Cannon.

By Music News Group

ABC/Image Group LAKenny Chesney isn’t just singing about a “Bar at the End of the World” these days, he’s looking for it as well.

The superstar from East Tennessee most recently engaged his wanderlust on an excursion to Europe.

“There’s a lot of places that I’m curious about,” Kenny says. “I love being a tourist. I went to Italy this past year and I loved it because I love to eat,” he laughs.

“I love red wine so it was a lot of fun. I grew up loving cheese, tomatoes,” the notorious fitness buff goes on. “All that’s in Italy. I love it and… I love being a tourist when I can be.”

Since he’s not mounting a full-fledged tour this summer, one of the rare chances to see Kenny this year comes this weekend at the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California.
