Bill and Brad Paisley filmed a short video in Bill’s dressing room at the Grand Ole Opry Friday night (14th). They were discussing their co-written song, “Dying To See Her Again” prior to performing it together for the first time on the Opry stage. It comes out in Brad’s new album, “Love And War,” due […]

Hi Folks: We talked last month about March coming in and going out like a lion or a lamb, and I guess across the country it did a little of both. All I know is the month left a big ole footprint here in Whisperville. First, as you’ve probably heard, we got stranded in Canada for an […]
1) Is there a book available to us that gives birth and death dates of the country music stars? There are some of my favorites that are no longer with us but weren’t “newsworthy” enough to make national news. Renee, the waitress on Larry’s Country Diner, published a very nice and informative book called Precious Memories Memorial […]
For the past several years, many of you have been following my grandson, Gabe, and his battle with a very rare type of cancer. Gabe is now twelve years old, and a straight-A student in middle school, in spite of the fact he misses at least one week every month as he deals with his chemo treatments. His mom, Beth, sent out an update on his condition last week, and I wanted to share it with you:
Scenes from Spring Training: I got to visit with my longtime friend and Atlanta Braves manager, Brian Snitker, and was then surprised by fans asking me to autograph their baseballs. I used to dream of signing baseballs when I was a kid, but to be honest, they are extremely difficult to write on. After returning […]
I had the sweetest telephone conversation over the weekend.
My daughter-in-law, Beth, has been telling me that my 8-year old granddaughter, Hallie, really wants to go to the Opry with me one night….just the two of us. So last night we decided that a Friday night would be best because Hallie doesn’t have to get up early on Saturdays like she does on Sundays for church. I sent Beth my Friday night schedule for the next two months and told her to pick the date that worked best for her.
Hi Folks: Well, did March come in like a lion or like a lamb in your neck of the woods? Legend has it that it will go out opposite of the way it came in, but I don’t know. We had tornado warnings here this morning, the groundhog saw his shadow this year, the temperature in […]
1) Do you ever write songs that you prefer to keep to yourself because they are too personal to share with other people? Not very many, but a couple do come to mind. When my first child was born, I wrote a song for her that nobody outside our family has ever heard. And recently, […]
Randy Travis and his wife, Mary, recently stopped by the Opry before returning home to Texas, and I had the honor of introducing them to a standing ovation onstage. Mary says she reads our newsletters every month, and I appreciate that. At the recent Legends Lunch, T. Graham Brown tried to hog his way into […]
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! I hope you get to spend it with the ones you love the most. My friend, Jerry Dowling in Cincinnati, did this drawing, and I thought you’d get a kick out of it. If you like his work (he did the 94th birthday drawing of Little Jimmy Dickens back in 2015), you might […]
