Dolly sure can write a sad song

“I think it’s kind of misery loves company. I think that we all have some really shitty days, and I think that’s just a reminder that we all feel low, and we all can feel low together sometimes.

And we’re not alone, and that’s kind if my favorite thing about country is, it’s like, we’re all in this together. It’s real and it’s honest, and it’s people sharing their highs, but it’s also people sharing their lows.

And I think it kind of comes down to feeling less alone when you feel really alone in the world.”, Casey Young quoted on whiskeyriff.com.

I’m Alright, 24years ago today hit number 1

“On Aug. 18, 1998, Jo Dee Messina landed at No. 1 on the Billboard country singles chart with “I’m Alright.”

The title track from Messina’s second studio album, the Phil Vassar-penned “I’m Alright” features a woman who’s down on her luck, but meeting up with an old friend (who perhaps might be an old flame) to catch up. Sparks don’t fly — the man is now married, after all — but the rendezvous does help the narrator gain perspective on how her own life is going.”, Annie Zaleski wrote on theboot.com.

Like I Love Country Music tops Billboards airplay chart.

“Kane talks about creating the track, “I wrote this song in 2019. I remember it was a little writer’s retreat thing on the on the road. So we had two different songs going, one in the back of the bus and one in the front of the bus. And I was in the back. And as I came up front, they, the writers had this great idea. And they already had some of the first verse and I just remember thinking, this could be a smash. And I jumped on it and right after that we all fell in love with it.””, JWills wrote on thecountrydaily.com.

Kenny Chesney Setting Records

From Kenny Chesney: “You live these songs,” Chesney marveled. “You come to these stadiums and see the faces, share the moments and it becomes your life, my life. It’s why I like to say No Shoes Nation is the most passionate place on earth. No matter what we throw at the people who come out, they bring it back to us with just as much heart and just as much fire. Whether it’s a birthday or ‘There Goes My Life,’ the people who come out come with everything they’ve got – and I am so grateful for it.”

This is the third personal attendance record Chesney has surpassed on the trek. In May, the country superstar set a Nissan Stadium record as he performed to 57,211 fans in Nashville. Nearly a month later, he topped that at Chicago’s Soldier Field with 52,792.

Four more cities, four more stadium shows – and Here And Now 2022 will be complete. Presented by Blue Chair Bay Spirits and fueled by Marathon, Chesney, band and crew can’t believe it’s almost over. “We waited for so long, and you wish it could go on and on.”

From Billy Ray : “My mamaw Ruthie made her way home and into heaven yesterday,” Noah tells fans in the caption of her post. “Not sure I can find the words, to sum up exactly how I feel. I was able to spend the last month of her life by her side and for that, I’m honored and beyond lucky to have had that time together. We talked a lot. We laughed a lot, but we sometimes just sat and soaked in each other’s company and said nothing at all.”
