Clay Walker and his non-profit organization Band Against MS (BAMS) will host the fourth annual Band Against MS Ride in Humble, Texas, on March 26. The ride will start and finish at the home of the Shell Houston Open PGA Tournament, one week before the pros tee off. Walker will kick off the Band Against MS Ride with a performance of the national anthem.

Walker founded Band Against MS in 2003 because he wanted to provide support to others living with the same disease he has been battling since 1996. To date, BAMS has raised more than $4.5 million.

“This event holds a special place in my heart because it combines two of my favorite things, cycling and raising awareness about multiple sclerosis,” Walker said. “Over the last three years all of the people who have taken a part in the ride have expressed their gratitude for this event and I am so excited we are able to do it again this year.”

The Marshall Tucker Band has announced concert dates for the 2016 Long Hard Ride Tour. The title of the new tour is a throwback to the band’s 1976 studio album of the same name.

This year marks 45 years of touring for the Marshall Tucker Band. They will also perform on the upcoming Rock Legends Cruise V, set for January 19-23, 2017.

“I look back at it all now and just think, ‘wow,'” says lead singer Doug Gray. “We’ve been doing this for 45 years and every year I get more excited about getting back out there to start a new tour. We wouldn’t still be here if not for all the fans, young and old, who keep coming to see us every night. We love you all… here’s to this year’s Long Hard Ride!”

Country artist Stephanie Quayle appears on a re-airing of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta on Friday (Feb. 19). The episode features her search for a wedding dress just 13 days before the wedding.

“The Say Yes to the Dress team was so patient and supportive as I tried on practically every dress in the shoppe,” Quayle said. “The whole experience was so positive even as I realized that I wasn’t going home with ‘the dress’ that day. It wasn’t meant to be!”

With less than a week before the wedding, the bride found her dream dress from designer Augusta Jones. Quayle and her groom, David Couch, were married on June 20, 2015.
