George Strait realizes a dream when he buys a golf resort....Jason Aldean will be on American Idol with the original American Idol this week, plus why Josh Thompson cried with Brad Paisley and memorial to be held in the Grand Ol Opry for a beloved member who has passed away....
When he's not singing, George Strait is on the golf course. King George has just bought a golf resort 25 miles northwest of his hometown San Antonio, Texas. The superstar bought the Tapatio Springs Golf Resort and Conference Center for an undisclosed amount with a partner. The golf resort had been in foreclosure since last June, so he probably got a good deal. George says he had his eye on the golf course. “I watched what was happening at Tapatio Springs, and we always believed it could be a real jewel," the country superstar says in a press release. "When the opportunity came up, we decided to go for it and make this dream come true."
Jason Aldean will hit the American Idol stage this Thursday on results night and sing his No. 1 duet, 'Don't You Wanna Stay,' with Kelly Clarkson. Jason is enjoying great success with the song. It looks like it’s going to be a crossover hit too, as the song is starting to make its way up the Hot AC and Top 40 charts.
A public memorial service is being held this Wednesday for Grand Ole Opry star Mel McDaniel. And, it’s only fitting that the service is going to be held in the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville. Mel McDaniel lost his battle with lung cancer on March 31 at his home in Hendersonville, Tenn.
Josh Thompson threw his arms around Brad Paisley and started to cry when he was told that Brad had recorded one of Josh’s songs for his upcoming album. The song, 'A Man Don't Have to Die', will appear on Brad's upcoming album, 'This Is Country Music. Josh says told him the good news in person, “He came up to me and said, 'Hey, man. I found out that I've had a song of yours on hold for a while, and I just want to let you know that if you're not going to do it, I'm going to cut it Wednesday." I cried. I hugged him, and said he could have it."
One of the highlights of this year's ACM Awards was Blake Shelton's performance of his newest single, "Honey Bee."
