Darius will perform as part of the 20th annual Power of Love gala May 21 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.  Steven Tyler, Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Diana Krall, R&B sensation Andra Day and The Late Late Show’s James Cordan are also on the bill. The benefit for Keep Memory Alive helps raise money to fight Alzheimer’s disease.

Carrie Underwood will give us our first taste of her new single “Church Bells” Sunday on the Academy of Country Music Awards.  Carrie shot the music video for the “Church Bells” during her tour stop in Lincoln, Nebraska. You can catch its TV debut Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

If you’re a fan of the Highwaymen Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson — you’ll want to mark your calendar for May 20. That’s the day The Highwaymen Live – American Outlaws comes out. The 3 CD/1 DVD set contains audio and video from a previously unreleased March 1990 concert at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, as well as live tracks from Farm Aid through the years.
