It was life imitating art this past weekend at the Bluebird Café, as the actors who portray Gunnar Scott and Will Lexington on ABC’s Nashville showed up to do a real-life show at Music City’s most famous singer/songwriter venue. Sam Palladio and Chris Carmack both took their turns.  The night was a benefit for Musicians Corner, a program that gives emerging artists a place to play in Nashville’s Centennial Park.

“Beautiful Drug” becomes the 15th chart topper of Zac Brown Band’s career– enough to make the Georgia band the country group with the most overall number ones, according to their label.  It also happens to be ZBB’s fourth number one in a row from their Jekyll + Hyde project, coming on the heels of “Homegrown,” “Heavy Is the Head” and “Loving You Easy.”

The Country Music Association presented Kacey Musgraves with its International Artist Achievement Award after her recent appearance at the Country to Country festival in London. Reba made the announcement via a taped message.
