Reba McEntire celebrated the 40th anniversary of her Grand Ole Opry debut with two shows last night (Sept. 22)—and two surprise guests: Dolly Parton and Carrie Underwood.
If was a full circle moment for Reba, as she was upstaged by Dolly during her Opry debut on Sept. 17, 1977.
“First time I ever sang on the Grand Ole Opry was September 17, 1977,” said Reba earlier this year, “and I was supposed to sing two songs, but they came to me when I got there and said, ‘We’re gonna have to cut you down to one song because Dolly Parton just pulled up into the driveway, and she’s gonna take one of your songs.’ I said, ‘Okay, she can take both of them. Can I meet her?’”
“I just wanted to give it back to you tonight,” said Dolly from the Opry stage, “and say hello and congratulations and how much I love you.”
Carrie surprised the audience with an unannounced performance of three songs before Reba joined her to duet on “Does He Love You.”
“It’s always an honor to be on this stage, especially tonight,” said Carrie. “You are an inspiration to us all.”

After releasing his self-titled debut album and scoring a No. 1 hit with his breakout single, “My Girl,” Dylan Scott had a lot of reasons to celebrate this summer. He’s keeping the celebration going this fall with the release of his new holiday EP, Merry Christmas, which is slated to drop on Oct. 13.
The five-song offering features holiday classics such as “Winter Wonderland,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “The Christmas Song,” “White Christmas” and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.”
“Christmas is my favorite time of the year, and I am really excited about the release of my first Christmas EP,” says Dylan. “I grew up listening to the holiday classics and to be able to record and perform some of these songs is a dream come true.”
Dylan will also be featured as a supporting act on Justin Moore’s Hell on a Highway Tour, which kicks off on Oct. 13 and runs through May 2018.

Eric Church is releasing more than 100 live recordings from his recent 61-date Holdin’ My Own Tour in a project he’s calling 61 Days in Church.
Eric has partnered with Apple Music to share 122 live recordings. The first 30 songs were made available on Friday, Sept. 1. An additional set of 30 songs were released today (Sept. 22), bringing the total to 60 songs.
The first 30 tracks from the project were made available on other streaming services on Sept. 15.
“I had so much fun learning songs that were unique to whatever city we found ourselves in,” said Eric. “I learned a lot about each place, and it was special to see the crowd react to the songs that were only for them. I’m glad we recorded it and can relive it forever.”
Tour posters from each tour stop will serve as the artwork for each track.
Check out the first 60 songs available below.

The boys from Midland—Jess Carson, Cameron Duddy and Mark Wystrach—are celebrating today’s release of their debut album, On the Rocks, by dropping a video for the album’s new single, “Make a Little.”
Co-penned by the trio with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “Make a Little” officially impacts country radio on Sept. 25.
“‘Make a Little’ is a song that we wrote about something that we think everyone could use a little bit more of in their lives—and that’s love—[I’m] talking about once the lights go off and maybe without your clothes,” says Mark. “It’s a bit of an homage back to the late ’80s, ’90s, honky-tonk, kinda rock ’n’ roll songs that made everybody get up and go dancing . . . and that’s usually how it all starts, right there on the dance floor, so get up there and dance to make a little.”

Chris Janson stopped by morning show Ty, Kelly & Chuck to talk about his new album, Everybody, which was released today (Sept. 22).
While the album’s lead single, “Fix a Drink,” is currently No. 11 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart—and rising—Chris already has a bead on the album’s future single,” Drunk Girl,” a tune he co-penned with Scooter Carusoe and Tom Douglas.
Chris told Nash Country Daily that the song almost effortlessly flowed out of the three songwriters—who are all fathers—about the way they would want their daughters treated.
“I’m going to make ‘Drunk Girl’ a single at some point, that’s a 99.9 percent guarantee,” says Chris. “By the way, I want to say with a humble heart here—and my co-writers would agree—we wrote this song, yes, but were just stewards of the ship. The song really wrote itself. That’s a true story, and it goes like this.”
