Emmy Nominated Writer, Producer and Actress Jen Richards Joining Cast of Nashville

Richards to Play Physical Therapist on Season 5 
Emmy-nominated writer, actress and producer Jen Richards (Her Story, Doubt) is set to join the cast of Nashville in the recurring role of Allyson Del Lago, a tough but understanding physical therapist who helps a series regular through one of their most difficult challenges.
This marks CMT’s first transgender character and the first out transgender actor on the network.
Richards is an accomplished writer and actress, as well as a consultant and advocate who works with national organizations and media projects. She is the co-writer/star/producer of the Emmy-nominated series Her Story, co-producer of the upcoming docu-series More Than T and writer of its accompanying Trans 102 series. She is also a 2016 Outfest Screenwriting Fellow for her feature script Any Given Week and will be appearing in several upcoming projects, including CBS’s Doubt.
Her television credits include being series regular on E!’s I Am Cait, Logo’s Beautiful As I Want to Be and AOL’s True Trans With Laura Jane Grace. She has appeared in several videos for BuzzFeed, OWN, and After Ellen. She has published essays on multiple platforms, and wrote the 2015 September/October cover story “What Trans Movement?” for The Advocate.
Prior to her transition, Richards had a successful career in nonprofit and arts management, received her BA in philosophy from Shimer College, studied at Oxford University and in Kyoto, Japan, participated in Outward Bound, was active in theater and published articles, lectured and led workshops on a variety of topics across the country.
She was born in Mississippi, where all her father’s family remains, calls North Carolina home, where her mom, brother and sister-in-law live, and her favorite musical artists include Alison Krauss, Chris Stapleton, the Dixie Chicks, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Lucinda Williams, Miranda Lambert, Patsy Cline, Shelby Lynne, Steve Earle and Sugarland.
Nashville makes its triumphant season five debut on CMT with a special two-hour premiere on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. 


Miranda Lambert Forced to Cancel Texas Concerts

Vocal Rest Shuts Down Three Home State Shows 
Miranda Lambert’s three Texas concerts this week have been canceled because of troubles with her voice.
A press release from concert promoter Live Nation spread the news late on Monday afternoon (Sept. 12), saying that the country star was on a mandated vocal rest.
Lambert’s Thursday show in Corpus Christi, her Friday show in Austin and her Saturday show in San Antonio have all be canceled. There are no plans to reschedule yet, and fans can get refunds where they bought their tickets.
Lambert had to cancel a show in Canada last summer for the same reason when she had a serious inflammation of the vocal cords.
At the time, she wrote, “I can’t believe this is happening. I am sure most of you heard the news about the show in Calgary having to be rescheduled due to my vocal issues. Thanks for all your posts and well wishes, I promise I will do everything to get better quickly!”
Lambert hasn’t posted anything on her website or social media pages yet, but her website does indicate these final three shows are canceled.


CMT Artists of the Year Are Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett

Kelsea Ballerini Will Receive Breakout Artist Honored During Special Premiering Oct. 20 
 Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett have been selected by CMT as the premiere country artists of 2016 and will be celebrated at the seventh annual CMT Artists of the Year special, it was announced Tuesday (Sept. 13).
Additionally, Kelsea Ballerini is set to receive the second-annual Breakout Artist of the Year honor.
 The 2016 CMT Artists of the Year special premieres from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Oct. 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Each artist will be honored with never-before-seen performances alongside lighthearted and emotional moments fueled by plenty of champagne during the 90-minute special on CMT. Following last year’s nod as breakthrough artist, Chris Stapleton joins first-time recipient Thomas Rhett and veteran CMT Artists of the Year Carrie Underwood (2010, 2012, 2016), Florida Georgia Line (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016) and Luke Bryan, who now ties with Jason Aldean as the artists with most wins with five consecutive years (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016).
This year’s five honorees collectively dominated the last 12 months in country music, ruling CMT’s platforms and country radio, scoring chart-topping album and singles and selling out concerts across the nation.

On the heels of her mega-hit debut album, The First Time, and before her first-ever headlining tour, CMT’s Next Women of Country member Kelsea Ballerini has taken the country world by storm. With her third No. 1 hit “Peter Pan,” she is the only female artist in country music history, including female duos and groups, to reach No. 1 with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album.

Additional awards, performers and special guests will be announced at a later date.
Former CMT Artists of the Year honorees include Jason Aldean (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014), Kenny Chesney (2011, 2012), Eric Church (2012), Hunter Hayes (2013), Toby Keith (2012), Lady Antebellum (2010, 2011), Little Big Town (2015), Miranda Lambert (2012, 2014), Tim McGraw (2013), Brad Paisley (2011), Blake Shelton (2015), Taylor Swift (2010, 2011), Keith Urban (2014), Sam Hunt (2015) and the Zac Brown Band (2010).
Previous CMT Artists of the Year performances have included Adele and Darius Rucker performing Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now,” Adam Lambert and Leona Lewis paying tribute to Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” and Maroon 5 covering Taylor Swift’s “Mine.”


Isaiah Fisher Inherits Carrie Underwood’s Power Vocals

Listen to the Rhythm of This Darling Duet 
 Let’s call this the Instagram video you just can’t stop playing.
It is Carrie Underwood and her son Isaiah, 18 months old, singing a bit of her “Heartbeat” together.
And I think you can actually hear how good he could sound years from now. 

The single from 2015 was written by Underwood, Ashley Gorley and Zach Crowell.
In a recent cover story for Southwest the Magazine, Underwood told me she, too, started singing very early.
“I don’t necessarily remember the first time I took a stage, because I was always the entertainment,” Underwood said. “At family reunions, my parents were always so proud — almost embarrassingly so — and they’d be like, ‘Carrie, sing.’”
After hearing Isaiah belt out every word his mom belts out, almost like a little boy echo, I think it’s very likely he could follow in those same footsteps.


Here’s to the Farm Tour

Luke Bryan Adds Special Guests to Line Up 
Luke Bryan has been down on the farm since 2009.
That’s when he started this gig of going out to rural areas, and playing for fans out in the middle of nowhere, then turning around and giving the money back to the community. A portion of the ticket proceeds will help fund local college scholarships for students from farming families.
This year’s tour kicks off in Gaston, South Carolina on Oct. 5, and he’s bringing Chris Janson, Granger Smith, Jon Langston and the Peach Pickers’ Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip along for this year’s eight-show run. The last show will be on Oct. 15 in Effingham, Illinois.
Right before the tour starts, Byran will release his Farm Tour…Here’s To The Farmer EP on Sept. 23.
