Brad Paisley will once again flex his funny bone during Nashville’s Wild West Comedy Festival this spring. For the second year in a row, he’ll host a night of stand-up at Music City’s Zanies Comedy Club on Monday, May 16.  Heavy hitters like Jeff Foxworthy, Tom Green and Kathy Griffin also play the country music capitol of the world during the week-long festival’s third year.

 

American Idol winner Trent Harmon will perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Toyota Owners 400 Sunday at Richmond International Speedway. You can catch the race at 1 p.m. ET on Fox.

 

It’s been exactly one month since Trisha Yearwood sang “Broken” live from New Orleans during Fox’s Palm Sunday broadcast of The Passion, and since then, the song has taken on a life of its own.  The song quickly became her first single to make Billboard’s Christian chart. More recently, “Broken” officially took the #20 spot on the Adult Contemporary Music Chart, alongside artists like Adele and Kelly Clarkson. Now, country fans are demanding to hear it on the Garth Brooks World Tour.  You can check out Trisha’s performance of “Broken” during her recent stop in Columbus here:
