It all comes down to tonight!  That’s when we find out if hometown boy Josh Gallagher wins “The Voice!”  Last night, Josh sang an original song called “Pick Any Small Town.”  Will his performance be enough to win the title over Billy Gilman, Sundance Head and We McDonald?  Voting ended at noon.  Tune in tonight at 8pm to find out who wins!
Tonight is also the night for a 3-hour telethon to help the victims of the East Tennessee wildfires.  The region’s most famous resident, Dolly Parton, along with Reba, Kenny Rogers, Alabama and a host of other singers and celebrities will perform to raise funds for Dolly’s charitable organization “The Dollywood Foundation.”  Dolly pledged $1000 per month for six months to all the families that were affected by the fires.  You can watch “Smoky Mountains Rise” tonight beginning at 8pm on GAC, AXS-TV and RFD as well as live streams at USATODAY.com.  You can donate by logging on to DollywoodFoundation.org or by calling 1-866-CARE-MORE!
Last Saturday, fans lined up in below-freezing weather conditions in Columbus, Ohio to wait in line to get good seats for Dan + Shay’s concert that evening.  When the guys arrived with their bus and saw their frigid fans, they knew what they had to do!  They bought hot chocolate for all of them, posed for photos and signed autographs!
