Jerry Lee Lewis, Keith Whitley To Be Inducted Into Country Music Hall Of Fame

The Country Music Hall Of Fame has announced that Jerry Lee Lewis, Keith Whitley and Joe Galante will be the 2022 inductees.

The members-elect will be honored during a Medallion Ceremony at the Museum in October, with heartfelt testimonials and once-in-a-lifetime musical tributes.

Rock & roll pioneer Jerry Lee Lewis will be inducted in the Veteran category, while neo-traditionalist Keith Whitley, who helped define country music's new traditionalist resurgence of the 1980s, will join the Hall in the Modern category.

Joe Galante, one of country music's most successful record executives, will become a member in the Nonperforming category.

Jerry Lee Lewis, who began as an explosive rock & roll performer, later became a major country star, with a distinctive and dynamic style as a singer and pianist. Between 1968 and 1981, he had thirty-four Top Twenty country hits.

Influential singer Whitley recorded a dozen Top Twenty solo country singles in five years. His career was cut tragically short at age thirty-four.

Gelante helped steer the careers of Alabama, Clint Black, Kenny Chesney, the Judds, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood and many other artists during his four decades in the record business.

RaeLynn Shares Two New Songs 'I Love My Hometown,' 'If God Took Days Off'

RaeLynn Shares Two New Songs 'I Love My Hometown,' 'If God Took Days Off'

Country star RaeLynn recently released two new songs, "I Love My Hometown" and "If God Took Days Off."

"I Love My Hometown," which is an anthem for RaeLynn's hometown of Baytown, Texas, is certain to be loved by those who have pride for their upbringing.

RaeLynn co-wrote "I Love My Hometown" with Corey Crowder, Brian Kelley and Canaan Smith. Crowder produced the track.

"You don't get this in the city / Like you do out in the sticks / You can't get this kind of pretty / 'Bout as real as real can get / Cause we put the good in the good people / We put a ring on the one we love / Always country coming through the speakers / all the roads all filled with trucks / I love my hometown / holdin' it down in my hometown / hometown, holding it down in my hometown," she sings in the chorus of "I Love My Hometown."

"If God Took Days Off," produced by Ben Stennis and Crowder, speaks about how one experiences God's love through another person. The track, written by RaeLynn, Taylor Phillips, Stennis and Cole Taylor, sees the singer wondering what her life would be like if God had taken a few days away from arranging things just as they should be.

"If God took days off, I'd be lost but not in your eyes / This kiss wouldn't get me high / I never would have ever found heaven tonight," RaeLynn sings.

"Y'ALL READY FOR TWO NEW SONGS? This Friday! Cause your girl ain't done singing about hometowns and Jesus," she had teased on social media ahead of the release.

"New year, new tour, new MUSIC! Hope y'all love these new songs as much as I love singing them," RaeLynn announced on Instagram.

"This music is a continuation of where my heart is," she added in a statement on Friday. "I will always love singing about my hometown and good ole Jesus! These songs are super special and only the beginning of what's to come."

Ingrid Andress Releases Personal New Single 'Seeing Someone Else'

Ingrid Andress Releases Personal New Single 'Seeing Someone Else'

Ingrid Andress recently released a new song, "Seeing Someone Else," the second track from her upcoming sophomore album.

Andress co-produced the track with longtime collaborator Sam Ellis. The song, which Andress co-wrote with Derrick Southerland and Jesse Frasure, narrates the story of an individual who's outgrown her existing romantic relationship. Despite still being in love, she knows deep down that staying would be a detriment to both herself and eventually, him.

"I think you're seeing someone else/ I think you're seeing who I used to be/ I bet you wish I was the girl that you met/ Out at a bar, makin' a mess, still 23/ And if you're honest with yourself/ You know you're hanging on the history, yeah, yeah/ You say you're still in love/ But it's so obvious when you look at me/ I think you're seeing someone else/ Woah, woah, yeah/ Woah, woah," the lyrics go.

"We all grow and change, but not everyone wants us to. Some people want to keep you exactly where you are for as long as possible, even if it's hurting you. Sometimes you don't even realize it's happening," Andress wrote on Instagram, introducing the track to fans.

She added, "But then one day you wake up and decide the person they want you to be isn't you anymore, so you pack your sh-t and break free from their grip. I hope this song makes you feel as liberated as I felt when writing it."

Kane Brown Launches His Own Cereal 'Kane Krunch'

Country singer Kane Brown has launched his own cereal brand, called Kane Krunch.

"Does anyone else love cereal as much as I do?! Kane Krunch available now," Brown wrote in the caption of Instagram picture that shows him holding a box of the cereal close to his body.

The cereal is described as a cocoa rice and has been made in partnership with PLB Sports & Entertainment, the company behind Doug Flutie's Flutie Flakes, Patrick Mahomes' Magic Crunch and Barstool Sports' Pardon My Flakes.

"Getting to work with the team to create my own cereal is one of the coolest things I've ever gotten to do," Brown admits. "You can ask my family, but we truly are a big cereal household, and I'm excited for my fans to be able to try it and get to share breakfast with me, too."

Fans can buy a box of Kane Krunch at Wegmans Food Markets or shipped to their homes from Brown's website.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of cereal will benefit Brown's charitable activities, including supporting the United States armed forces, youth and affordable housing initiatives.

"Kane Brown has been a star on the stage for years but now will be a star at the breakfast table," said PLBSE President and CEO Ty Ballou. "Working with Kane and his team on this project to bring the Kane Brown brand to retail has been great, and we continue to be able to support our partners' philanthropic initiatives as well - so it truly is a win-win-win."

Wynonna Judd To Continue Tour In Honor Of Late Mother

Wynonna Judd To Continue Tour In Honor Of Late Mother

Wynonna Judd has announced that she will continue her Fall Tour in honor of late mother, Naomi Judd, who together made The Judds.

Naomi Judd's other daughter Ashley Judd revealed last week that the legendary country music star died of a self-inflicted firearm wound on April 30, just one day before her scheduled induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame along with her other daughter.

Wynonna made the announcement from the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville during "Naomi Judd: A River of Time Celebration," her mother's public memorial service held on Sunday.

"I will continue to sing," she told the crowd of cheering fans. "I made a decision and I decided to share it on national television," Wynonna announced. "After a lot of thought, I am gonna have to honor her and do this tour. I'm just gonna have to. Because that's what you would want."

"Bono once told me, 'Give them what [the fans] want - not what you want,'" an emotionally broken Wynonna continued. "So tonight, as we close I say, 'the show must go on.' As hard as it may be. And we will show up together. You will carry me, as you carried me for 38 years once again because I honestly didn't think I could do it."

Wynonna will perform the Judds' greatest hits during 10 concert dates scheduled as a part of the duo's 2022 Final Tour with Martina McBride.

Carly Pearce & Ashley McBryde's 'Never Wanted To Be That Girl' Hits No. 1 On Country Airplay Chart

Carly Pearce & Ashley McBryde's 'Never Wanted To Be That Girl' Hits No. 1 On Country Airplay Chart

Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde's "Never Wanted to Be That Girl" surged to No.1 on Billboard's Country Airplay chart dated May 14.

According to Luminate, the song logged 23.4 million audio impressions in the tracking week ended May 8, recording a 15 percent jump over the previous week.

Pearce and McBryde co-wrote "Never Wanted to Be That Girl" with Shane McAnally. The song is just the third duet between two solo women to hit the top of the Country Airplay chart.

Elle King and Miranda Lambert's "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)" topped the chart dated April 16. Earlier, way back in November 1993, Reba McEntire's collab with Linda Davis, "Does He Love You," hit No. 1 on the list.

"Reba and Linda . Miranda and Elle . now Ashley and me," Pearce told Billboard. "There's something about two girls talking - or singing- that just hits home. And the fact that we're not just singing it, but also that we wrote it . that's the icing on the cake. The only thing that makes this better is seeing my friend Ashley getting her first No. 1. Now that is something to celebrate."

McBryde added, "Carly, Shane and I were focused on writing a song we loved that day. We were three individuals unafraid of being honest. That was our compass. Now here we are with a No. 1 song at country radio to remind us of how rewarding honesty can be."

The song's climb to the top has earned Pearce her third No. 1 on the list, following "Every Little Thing" (one week, November 2017) and "I Hope You're Happy Now," with Lee Brice (one week, June 2020).

"Man in Black," "Folsom Prison Blues," "I Walk the Line," "Ring of Fire," "A Boy Named Sue," and "Get Rhythm," are some of the most famous signature tunes by Grammy winner Johnny Cash, who sold more than 90 million records. He passed away on September 12, 2003. June Carter Cash died a few months earlier, on May 15, 2003.

Cash was previously the subject of the highly successful motion picture, Walk The Line, which was released in 2005. The movie charted his early life, rise to fame, and relationship with June Carter.

Reese Witherspoon, who portrayed June in that movie, won an Oscar for Best Actress, while Joaquin Phoenix, as Johnny, was nominated for Best Actor.
