Nashville News and Notes – Monday


CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is Chevrolet’s new brand ambassador. He’ll partner with the automaker in various ways over the next three years, and Chevy will also sponsor his upcoming 8th Annual Farm Tour.

There was a lot of sadness out Orlando over the weekend.  On Friday night, season six “VOICE” contestant Christina Grimmie was gunned down after a concert performance.  The 22-year-old was shot during an autograph session and died on Saturday.  And then, on Sunday morning, another gunman entered a night club and killed at least 49 people and left more than 50 others wounded.  So many people have commented on the tragic events, and I think Brad Paisley said it pretty well with this:  “Tweeting about this kind of tragedy feels so insignificant. But let’s all pray for Orlando FL today. And the world. I’m in disbelief.”
