Lots going on in Country Music today.  Last week, you might remember that Scotty McCreery officially announced via Twitter that he will be joining Brad Paisley’s tour next year.  Now it's Brad's turn to tweet.  He is trying to decide what the tour is going to be called.  One name mentioned was “Sunshine and Puppies.”  Not sure what puppies have to do with country music, but okay Brad -- you might want to rethink that one.

Good news all you fans of The Band Perry.  They’re currently writing the follow-up to their nearly platinum, self-titled debut album.  However, Kimberly told the Vancouver Sun, they’re feeling a lot of pressure to write and produce music because the bar is set pretty high.  They’ll be joining Reba McEntire on the road for the “All the Women I Am” tour, kicking off November 6th in Moline, Illinois.

Eddie Montgomery celebrated his 48th birthday Friday night performing at the WOOL ‘Country Jam.”  He told the crowd he is a ‘Lucky Man’ because this year he was celebrating his birthday cancer free.  Eddie and Troy debut some new material you’ll hear on their upcoming album, “Rebels on the Run,” due out October 18th.

Actor Russell Crowe took the stage with Keith Urban over the weekend for his final show in Vancouver.  Russell sang Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” and didn’t do too bad of rendition.  Here's Russell:

Keith then joined him for Steve Miller’s “The Joker.”  And let’s just say Keith’s back is probably hurting today from carrying Russell.  I’ll have the video available later today in my blog.
