Little Big Town among the artist to be featured at the Country Music HOF in 2018…

 

Luke Bryan has a big 2018 lined up.

Luke thinks 2018 could be the best year of his career. In addition to all that, his sixth studio album, What Makes You Country, is available as of today.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has announced its exhibition line-up for 2018.

Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town says, “Having an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is something we wouldn’t have ever known to dream of for ourselves, it is beyond a dream come true.”
Also, the American Currents: The Music of 2017 exhibit opens on March 9th and will feature Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Randy Travis and Chris Young, with more to be announced.

George Strait is the Texan of the Year…
Sugarland confirms new music and a tour…

Of course we knew George Strait is the King, but now he's also Texan of the Year. 
The Texas Legislative Conference will honor him for his work in raising funds for victims of Hurricane Harvey. George will get the award on March 22nd. 

Sugarland will be back with new music by the end of this month, even more next year and they will tour in 2018 -- and they say it's like riding a bike. Jennifer and Kristian said they were never breaking up when they decided to do solo projects, but as the years passed, fans and they themselves started wondering if they'd ever make music together again, and if they could. Not to worry though, Kristian says it felt like no time had passed when they got together to write. 2018 seems to be the year for Sugar!

Garth Brooks is finally back at #1…
Eddie Montgomery to tour next year…

For the first time since 2007, Garth Brooks has the number-one song in country music. "Ask Me How I Know" peaks at the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart this week.
  
Garth scored his first number one with "If Tomorrow Never Comes," 28 years ago this week.

Despite Troy Gentry's death, Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry will tour alone next year to support their final album, Here's to You.
He says, “I’m anxious to get back out on the road and play some new music for our friends and fans. Next year marks the 20th anniversary of our band -- we’ve got lots to celebrate and look forward to in 2018.” 
The tour begins January 19th in South Dakota and he will stop at the Thirsty Cowboy in Medina on March 16th.
