haGeorge Strait Announces Final Tour

The world has lost another music icon, Andy Williams, who's career spanned almost 75 years, lost his battle with bladder cancer yesterday at his home in Branson, Missouri. Williams, age 84, had performed regularly at his Moon River Theatre for the past 20 years.

Country favorite George Strait has announced his final tour - The Cowboy Rides Away which will end in 2014. The 60-year-old singer says he will continue to record and write songs with an occasional special performance, but his touring days will be over. 

Loretta Lynn celebrated her 50th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member Tuesday night during a performance in Nashville. Lynn reflected on the first song she sang on the Opry, I'm A Honky Tonk Girl, with Zero Records - and said, "that's exactly what it made me." 

Kip Moore released his new video, Beer Money, this week - watch it below.
