Brad Paisley to appear on the new Johnny Cash tribute album…
Lady A is coming to a theater near you…

Brad Paisley is among the artists appearing on a new Johnny Cash tribute album.
Johnny Cash Forever Words: The Music features the late country star's poems brought to life by various singers. Most of the lyrics are from Forever Words: The Unknown Poems, which was published last year. Johnny's son, John Carter Cash, is heading up the project, and besides Brad, Jewel, Jamey Johnson and Kacey Musgraves are on the album. Late rocker Chris Cornell also sings on a track. There's no release date yet.

When Lady Antebellum performed at the historic United Palace Theater in New York City, they filmed the show -- and now we know why.
It'll be screened in theaters for one night only, July 25th. Artists Den Presents Lady Antebellum will feature the band playing songs from their new album, Heart Break, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart- as well as some of their big hits. 
It will be shown in 500 theaters across the country. If you can’t make it to the theater, I am sure they will release it on DVD or you can see them live in concert at Blossom on July 21st!
