ACM money goes to flood relief

Sunday, May 16, 2010 – Lady Antebellum and Brad Paisley presented a $250,000 check on behalf of ACM Lifting Lives to the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee during today's Great American Country (GAC), "Music City Keep On Playin' - A Benefit for Flood Relief."

The commercial-free concert and telethon will re-air at 11 p.m. tonight and 2 a.m. on Monday, May 17.

Brooks & Dunn taped a special message for the telethon thanking all the artists who participated in the taping of "ACM Presents: Brooks & Dunn - The Last Rodeo" in April. Ticket proceeds from that live event in Las Vegas went to ACM Lifting Lives, which in turn quickly earmarked funding for those affected by the recent floods in Middle Tennessee. This is the first disbursement from that event's fundraising efforts.

This two-CD set contains 30 songs, but aside from 2 new songs, there's not much reason to buy this set. The quality certainly is there as 20 of the songs reached the top of the chart. The new songs - both were released as singles - were Honky Tonk Stomp, featuring ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, and Indian Summer. ...
CD review - Cowboy Town If your idea of a cowboy is Cowboy Troy and the guys from Big & Rich, then sure, this new Brooks & Dunn album is named appropriately. For it's the city-bred hat crowd that the majority of these songs are aimed at or at least the women that married them. Their last couple of albums saw them gain some critical acclaim with songs like the stirring "Believe," but there's nothing that immediately memorable here. Instead, we get the fuzzy current events theology of, "God ...
