 Travis Tritt went to space- sorta…
ACM New Artist nominees sing together- sorta…

The commander of the International Space Station gave us back on Earth a reminder to stay positive.
Astronaut Chris Cassidy played Travis Tritt's song, "Great Day to Be Alive." Travis responded on Instagram by saying, "As close as I’ll ever get to actually being in space. I’m very honored to have my music being played on the International Space Station! "

The ACM's New Artist of the Year nominees, Ingrid Andress, Gabby Barrett, Jordan Davis, Russell Dickerson, Lindsay Ell, Riley Green, Caylee Hammack, Cody Johnson, Tenille Townes and Morgan Wallen have joined Willie Nelson for the classic, "On the Road Again."
The single will benefit the ACM's Lifting Lives COVID-19 Response Fund.
Keith Urban hosts this year's ACM Awards, and it'll take place from venues across Nashville on September 16th.
