Little Big Town will be the subject of a new exhibit coming to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. It’s called "Little Big Town: The Power of Four," the new exhibit will tell the group's story from the very beginning, with keepsakes and photos from each member's childhood and career on display. Some of the artifacts include the neon signs used on their Pain Killer album cover, Karen Fairchild's wedding dress, and costumes lined with led lighting from the 2014 CMA Awards. "Little Big Town: The Power of Four" will open on June 29, 2018, and will run through June 9 of next year.
Miranda Lambert's MuttNation Foundation has pulled off another successful pet adoption drive during CMA Fest. This year's drive helped 56 dogs find new homes during the 4-day event at the Music City Center, bringing the total to more than 150 MuttNation pups adopted over the 3 years it’s been held in Nashville.
Many of the dogs that were adopted at this year's event were named in honor of some of country music's biggest stars, including Lady A, Zac Brown, Luke Bryan, George Strait, Keith Urban, Dottie West, Tammy Wynette and Miranda Lambert herself. Such an amazing thing she’s doing!

Jon Pardi is opening for Luke Bryan on his stadium tour and he said to not take it personally if he doesn’t get quite as up close and personal as the superstar does by bending down to high five the audience.
“You always see Luke out there dancing and getting up with the crowd,” he said. “I try not to get the selfies and stuff like that because he’s going to come out and do that, and it’s a long way down for me -- I’m super tall. It’s like, ‘Let me get down there, my jeans are so tight!’” he said, adopting a groaning tone. “I’m going to sit down here with you and sing the rest of the song.”
