Kenny Rogers Inducted Into Music City Walk of Fame

“This was I believe my last thing on my bucket list,” Kenny during acceptance speech

Following in the footprints of country stars like Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Randy Travis and more, Kenny Rogers was inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame on Oct. 24 by his longtime friends, the Oak Ridge Boys.

The Music City Walk of Fame—created in 2006—is a tribute to artists of all genres who have contributed to the world through song and made a significant contribution to the music industry with a connection to Music City. Sidewalk medallions line the one-mile stretch with the names of the inductees etched in a star and guitar design. Past inductees include Johnny Cash, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Hank Williams, Trisha Yearwood, Little Big Town and more. Kenny received the 80th star on the Music City Walk of Fame. Take a look at the photo gallery below, courtesy of Tammie Arroyo, AFF-USA.com.

 In Kenny’s nearly six decades on the charts, the Country Music Hall of Fame member has sold more than 120 million albums and recorded hit songs such as “The Gambler,” “Lady,” “Islands in the Stream,” “Lucille,” “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town” and more.

Kip Moore Lands His 4th #1 Hit

Kip Moore Lands His 4th #1 Hit

“We Couldn’t Have Done It Without You All.” Kip Moore

Kip Moore is celebrating his 4th career No. One today with his “rousing” (UpRoxx) single “More Girls Like You” landing the top spot on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country Airplay chart. Co-written by Moore, alongside Steven Olsen, Josh Miller and David Garcia, the anthemic track instantly engaged fans and country radio, as well as offered a “sonic clue” (Rolling Stone) as the lead track taken from his recently-released and critically-acclaimed third studio album Slowheart.

“I found a lot of peace in staying authentic to my own true feelings as a person and my music,” said Moore. “I’ve always believed that magic can truly happen once you tap into the core of who you are and what you feel. To see that music resonate and this song ultimately reach No. one is far beyond what I imagined. I’m so thankful to my team, everyone at country radio and the fans for getting behind this song, we couldn’t have done it without you all.”

With no signs of slowing down this year, Moore will also hit the road with Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen for a limited run this December as part of a special solo acoustic stint dubbed Tall Tales and Truth Tour. The singer/songwriters will take the stage together each night, performing and sharing the intimate stories behind their songs, for a one-of-a-kind experience. Kicking off in Denver, CO on 12/7, they will also stop in Lincoln, NE (12/8), Washington D.C. (12/13) and wrap in New York City on 12/14. Tickets will go on sale starting 10/27 at 10am CT here.

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Author – Gail

My name’s always seemed dull & boring to me, like a footstep, a door slam, a hammer blow, not melodious or musical

When I was growing up, my best friends had multisyllabc  names such as Lynda and Barbara.  Their names flowed like waterfall.  My name just clunked.  Gail sounded  hard, inflexible. When I married, I made my maiden name into my middle name so old friends could still find me.  In so doing, I abandoned my middle name, Donna,  which I suppose I could have adopted as my first name.  After all, it had the two syllables and final a I seemed to crave. I might have remained dissatisfied forever until a friend who knew some Hebrew pointed out that Gail derived from Abba   Gael (Abigail).
Father’s joy,) or more exactly, “Daddy’s joy”.   I tucked this translating into my heart for safekeeping.  Many years later I would learn that my parents had lost a baby before birth, so they were thrilled not only by my arrival, but by my timing.  You see Mom brought me home from the hospital and placed me in Daddy’s arms on their second anniversary.  Little Gail was Daddy’s joy, indeed.  So I’ve made peace with my plain name , a solid name, like faith, hope, love–and joy.

Abba, Father, You know my name.  May I always be Your Joy too – Gail
