Scotty McCreery Receives Golden Recognition For “In Between”
Scotty McCreery performed in the Live At The Ryman series to a sold-out, limited in-venue audience and via livestream at the Ryman Auditorium on Sept. 4, and prior to taking the stage that evening, he was surprised with a plaque commemorating the RIAA-Gold Certification of his No. 1 “In Between.” Last week, the North Carolina native announced the first taste of new music from a forthcoming album with upcoming single “You Time,” set for release Sept. 23, and debuted the tune on the historic Ryman stage.
“It was a fun surprise to receive a gold plaque for ‘In Between’ during ‘HLN’s Morning Express,’” said McCreery. “The fans are the reason why the song was certified gold, so I wanted to share the moment with them again on my livestream Q&A moderated by my friend Bill Cody.”

‘Name That Country Tune’ Set To Tape September 10
A pilot for a new country trivia game show, “Name That Country Tune,” will be taped in Nashville on Sept. 10 at Studio 615 in Nashville. The fast-paced, family-friendly, charity-driven game show is set in a living room rather than the traditional stage podium design, and will feature three recording artist contestants raising money for their favorite charity. The show host is Joe Bonsall of The Oak Ridge Boys, and contestants on the first show include Lee Greenwood, Linda Davis, and T. Graham Brown.
“We are pleased that 100% of the funds raised will go directly to the charities selected by the celebrities,” said Executive Producer, Nelson Tucker. “Our number one goal is to raise significant funds for the charities. All advertising monies and donations from viewers go directly to the charities. This is our way of giving back in a significant way.”
