Randy Travis, Drew Parker Team Up On 'There's A New Kid In Town'

Country Music Hall of Famer Randy Travis has teamed up with rising country star Drew Parker for a new rendition of a classic Keith Whitley Christmas song "There's A New Kid In Town."

"We're looking for the King / The new Messiah / We're following the star / Shining brighter / Old man won't you help us if you can / He shook his head / But he pointed his hand," sings Travis.

The duet follows Travis' release of his remastered Christmas album,An Old Time Christmas (Deluxe Edition), which included the song as a never-before-heard track from the vault.

"I hope fans see the true reason for the season in this video. Jesus, our Lord, and togetherness. That's what it's all about!" Travis said about the video for the song.

"Not to mention the fact that Country music is alive and well in this new crop," he added. "Drew nails the vocals on this - I'm so glad he went in with Kyle Lehning to record alongside mine from all those years ago."

Originally released in 1989, An Old Time Christmas, is certified Gold by the RIAA. The remastered deluxe edition of the album included three tracks from the vault.

Lainey Wilson Is Billboard's Top New Country Artist Of 2021

Rising country star Lainey Wilson has been named Billboard's Top New Country Artist Of 2021.

"It's crazy - when I first got here, everyone was saying, 'It's a 10-year town, it's a 10-year town,' and I thought, 'I'm going to do this in less time.'" But you know what? It's like 10 years and one month later [that] I get my first No. 1," Wilson told Billboard, referring to a saying in the country music industry that Nashville is a 10-year town, the long duration that a musician has to wait to achieve success.

"Those 10 years shaped who I am as a person and an artist. I feel like I earned my spot," the 29-year-old artist added.

Wilson, who started writing songs at age 11, released an EP titled Country Girls Rule on MySpace when she was 14.

The Baskin, Louisiana, native's first charting single, "Things a Man Oughta Know," rose to No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart dated September 19. It is the second single from the album, Sayin' What I'm Thinkin.

Wilson will be opening for the U.S. dates of Dierks Bentley's Beers On Me tour next year.

Country star Mitchell Tenpenny got engaged to longtime girlfriend Meghan Patrick on Wednesday (November 24).

Tenpenny popped the question to his fellow country artist at the popular Losers Bar & Grill in Nashville.

Tenpenny told People that he decided to propose this week as he wanted his and Patrick's families to be present in Nashville.

"I met Meghan here so it was the perfect place - and hey, I got engaged 'at the end of a bar!'" Tenpenny joked, alluding to the title of his song with fellow hitmaker Chris Young.

Patrick said she had an inkling Tenpenny could be popping the big question soon.

"With my family coming into town this weekend I thought maybe, because we have talked about this for a while," she said. "But I did not expect this! This is the most perfect engagement I could have ever imagined."

"I had a whole speech planned and it disappeared [in the moment]. I wasn't able to say everything I wanted to. I was nervous - and relieved. She was crying, I was crying. All I wanted was to hear her say yes!" Tenpenny said.

"I also thought there would be all these things I would have said," Patrick told People. "And all I could get out was 'Yes!' Then we both awkwardly stumbled around trying to get the ring on my finger."

Tim McGraw, Faith Hill Bathe Together In New '1883' Teaser

A new teaser for the "Yellowstone" prequel "1883" shows country stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, starring as James and Margaret Dutton in the show, taking a bath together.

The two-minute teaser clip for the Taylor Sheridan drama shows a smiling Hill holding Tim's face before he wraps her up for a long kiss.

The video, narrated by Dutton daughter Elsa (played by Isabel May), also focuses on the hardships of life in the late 19th century.

"I heard a thousand stories, but none could describe this place, it must be witnessed to be understood, and yet I've seen it and understand it even less than before I first cast eyes on this place," Elsa says as the clip opens. "There were two journeys, one was filled with danger and death and despair. The other, adventure and wonder."

"We weren't poor, we weren't desperate, the road west is filled with failures. It was a dream, and the dream was coming true," she continues.

Paramount+ released the full cast for "1883" and descriptions for many new characters, earlier in the week. "1883" begins on December 19 on Paramount+.
