Crystal Gayle Gets Hometown Theater Namesake

crystal gayle

Crystal Gayle’s legacy continues to have a lasting impact in her childhood hometown with the unveiling of a theater named in her honor and an exhibit profiling her iconic career.

The Wabash County Historical Museum in Wabash, Indiana named its theater the “Crystal Gayle Theater” to honor her influence and connection to the small town in Northern Indiana.

“It’s so humbling to return to Wabash and feel the love from the community. They always welcome me home with open arms. I’m so proud to be here and be part of this incredible museum,” Gayle said.

The youngest of eight children, including Loretta Lynn, Gayle was born Brenda Gail Webb in Paintsville, Kentucky. As the coal mines closed, her family left the area to find work and moved to Wabash, Indiana.

The updated exhibit features a replica of Gayle’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, 1986 American Music Award for Favorite Female Country Vocalist, “When I Dream” gold album, tour gown and tour book, 2005 Indiana Living Legend Award along with various pictures and memorabilia.

“Our community has a strong affection for Crystal Gayle and her connection to many local families and this will be a great event for them to reconnect with her and enjoy the museum,” said Mitch Figert, Executive Director.

The expanded exhibit will allow the museum to further highlight Crystal Gayle’s accomplishments which will also include memorabilia to be added inside the theater.

Justin Timberlake Releases Country Single


Fresh off the CMA Awards, Justin Timberlake has gone country…sorta.  Justin has just released “Drink You Away” to country radio.   This is the same song he performed with Chris Stapleton at last weeks CMA Awards along with “Tennessee Whiskey.”

The song is off Justin’s 2013 release, The 20/20 Experience, and lyrically fits right in with the classic country theme of drowning our sorrows in various alcoholic beverages.

Celebrities, internationally renown designers, musical guests and society’s finest celebrated at Nashville’s newest elite event Off The Record – an evening of high fashion and musical performances created by Neste Event Marketing and Entertainment Buy’s Gil Cunningham – on Sunday, Nov.1st, kicking off a week of festivities leading up to the CMA Awards.

“Nashville is on everyone’s radar right now as an ‘it’ city, and our team felt that it was important to marry the fashion and vibrant music scene with an event that was uniquely ‘Nashville’,” Cunningham expressed.

Over four hundred guests were welcomed into Sylvia Roberts’ estate, best known for its appearance on ABC’s Nashville, to browse pieces from top designers throughout the world on display and for sale in 12 rooms of the home. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails by Patron Tequila as musical guests Chase Bryant, Kaleo and Old Dominion performed poolside acoustic performances.

As the performances came to a close, guests took their seats for the fashion show featuring full lines by Ani&Ari, Kaufman Franco, Gucci, provided by Nordstrom Green Hills, Johnathan Kayne, MINXX by Margaret Roberts, Tribe Kelley by Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line and his wife Brittney and John Varvatos with performances by country-newcomer Maren Morris, award-winning singer/songwriter Phil Vassar and STYX’s Tommy Shaw. Following the show, The Cadillac Three performed to wrap up the evening.

In mid-October, Off The Record partnered with Red Gold Tomatoes to donate 43,000 lbs of tomato product to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and on Nov. 1st, Second Harvest were the recipients of another Off The Record donation – receiving the proceeds from the silent auction which was held throughout the evening.
