Well, that didn’t take long.  Less than a day after Miranda Lambert last teased that her new single would be out Monday, we got confirmation this morning.  Miranda’s been teasing the release all week after promising new music at last month’s CMA Music Festival. The song is titled “Vice,” and will be released on Monday!

There’s a piece of country music history in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s new exhibit.  The guitar Alan Jackson played on the 2001 CMA Awards is featured in “Louder Than Music:  Rock, Power & Politics,” an exhibit that chronicles times when music has intersected with major events in American history: in this case, the terror attacks of 9/11. The display also includes Alan’s handwritten lyrics to “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning),” the song he performed on that CMA telecast, which was inspired by 9/11.  The exhibits run through November 27 at The Rock & Roll HOF before it is packed up and moved to The Newseum in Washington, DC.

Zac Brown Band is headed back to the Caribbean this winter for the second year of their all-inclusive Castaway with Southern Ground tropical vacation. The all-inclusive four-night getaway will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico January 30 – February 3, 2017.
