After Jake Owen’s concert set was cut short at the 2013 CMA Music Festival due to weather, The Bobby Bones Show offered the country star a way to make it up to fans. Fans can tune in tomorrow, June 12, at 8 a.m. CT to hear Owen perform his entire concert set live on air from The Bobby Bones Show studio in Nashville.
The special fan concert was set up via a quick Twitter exchange between Owen and Bones:
@jakeowen: Sorry to all my fans that paid good money for #CMAFEST2013 tix. Due to the weather coming in, I was told to only play one song. I ❤ you guys
@mrBobbyBones: Hey @jakeowen, you are formally invited to finish your set from last night on our show.
@jakeowen: Say when…

Country music star and Army veteran Craig Morgan put his EMT training to use on Sunday (June 9) when he helped emergency responders attend to a bad accident on Interstate 40 eastbound near Lobelville, Tenn., just 30 miles outside his hometown of Dickson. Morgan was returning from a recent concert date when, at approximately 11:15am central time Sunday morning, two semis and a tanker collided 1/4 mile in front of their tour bus.
Morgan and two members of his crew, Jerry Hines and Joey Greer, ran to the scene to help extinguish flames and care for the drivers.
“Anytime there’s a situation like this, I think it’s important to do what we can to help others,” shared Morgan this morning in an exclusive interview with Fox News.

The Grand Ole Opry is about to get its own ice cream flavor. The “Graham Ole Opry” ice cream flavor won best in show at Sunday’s 28th annual Miss Martha’s Ice Cream Crankin’ fundraiser. Purity will begin producing the Graham Ole Opry flavor, which is made with chopped peanuts, caramel swirls and chocolate-covered graham chunks.
The flavor inventor, Amanda Allen, 22, is a recent college graduate. “I recently returned to Nashville from college, so I think I was feeling a lot of city pride in being here again. My midlife crisis plan is to open up an ice cream shop somewhere, so it’s nice to know that I am creating flavors that people think are worth eating,” said Allen.
