Jimmy Buffet taking a turn at the acting thing.  He is going to be appearing in an upcoming episode of the CBS show, “Hawaii Five-O.”  The episode is set to air sometime in November.  Jimmy will be playing a pilot who is friends with Lt. Commander Joe White, played by Terry O’Quinn.

Kenny Rogers is writing his first autobiography.  It’s tentatively scheduled for a fall release.  HarperCollins have picked up the publishing rights to his book.  Kenny feels his life has gotten more interesting as he has gotten older, but doesn’t want to forget it all before he can get it down on paper.

Lady Antebellum will be starting their “Own the Night” tour beginning on November 11th.  The band admits they felt a bit of pressure when going in to actually record the single “Own the Night.”  While they want all their songs to be as big as “Need You Now” Lady A plans to continue their success by staying true to the country music fan base.  They feel if pop music fans enjoy their music too – that’s just an added bonus.

 Here’s what Kelley told the Associated Press:
