Music City Minute: Kelly Clarkson, George Strait, Montgomery Gentry

 

While walking the red carpet last Thursday night at the Billboard Women in Music Awards, Kelly Clarkson revealed some pretty terrifying news. When a reporter commented on how well Kelly’s life was going right now, she revealed that her home in Los Angeles had just been robbed the night before. Kelly said, "It was crazy, we got here and our whole house was like bashed in, it was crazy." When asked if anything of value was stolen, Kelly said the thief only took "materialistic things" they didn't care about, but added that the perpetrator actually went into their kid's room. Kelly then added that it's "a blessing" that they weren't in the house at the time of the robbery.

 

George Strait has been named the 2018 Texan of the Year by the Texas Legislative Conference, joining a distinguished list of past honorees that includes U.S. Presidents, Senators, Congressmen, Governors, and business icons. George earns the prestigious honor for raising awareness and funds for the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, and he will be presented with the award during a ceremony in New Braunfels on March 22. To date, Strait's efforts on behalf of Hurricane Harvey victims have raised over $50 million.

 

Eddie Montgomery is taking Montgomery Gentry's music on the road next year on his newly announced "Here's To You Tour," it’ll kick off on Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on January 19. The new trek will mark the 20-year anniversary of Montgomery Gentry as a group as well as the emotional return to the stage for Eddie, who will be touring for the first time since the tragic death of his duo partner, Troy Gentry. They even once discussed what they'd do if the other one died first. He says, "We said to each other, 'Hey, we want Montgomery Gentry to keep going.' It's weird, I always thought it was going to be me that went down first." In honor of Gentry and their nearly two decades-worth of country music, Eddie will be performing the band's greatest hits as well as tracks from their upcoming album, Here's To You. So far there are no Texas dates but we’re hoping he’ll make a stop here. We’ll keep you posted.
