Country Music Hall of Fame and Grand Ole Opry member Jean Shepard died this morning at age 82. Shepard was the longest-running Opry member and celebrated her 60th anniversary with the show last year. Her signature songs included the Ferlin Husky duet “A Dear John Letter,” “A Satisfied Mind,” “Second Fiddle (To An Old Guitar)” and “Slippin’ Away.” Arrangements are pending.
Remember little Billy Gilman, the youngster who made his country music debut at the ripe old age of 11 with “One Voice” in 2000. Well, he’s back, and his avenue for re-entry into the music industry is none other than NBC’s “The Voice.”
Billy earned a four-chair turn-around. He ultimately chose Adam Levine as his coach. Tune into “The Voice” to see how far Billy will go.

“I love country music,” says Campbell, “I have dedicated my life to making it the only way I know which is great. In my book there is only one kind of country music…Great Country Music. It’s what I do.”
Every Wednesday, Campbell releases a #WCW (Woman Cover Wednesday) video featuring his rendition of songs originally sung by women. The latest video, filmed backstage at the “TODAY” show features his take on Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” #WCW videos can be found across Campbell’s social media platforms.
Campbell recently announced his upcoming first-ever USO tour, and that he will participate in the Grand Ole Opry/USO 75th Anniversary concert series. Going from coast to coast, performances include Patrick Air Force Base in Florida on August 7 and Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington on August 9th.
