The Billboard Music Awards happened over the weekend and it might as well have been a tribute to Taylor Swift! Taylor, as you've probably heard, will be kicking off her 1989 World Tour here this Wednesday night! Florida Georgia Line was named Billboard’s Top Country Artist of 2015. Get the full list of winners here.

Just as I predicted, Pitch Perfect 2 dominated the box office this weekend to the tune of $70.3 million which is $5 million more than the original made than, get this, it’s entire US theatrical run! Mad Max: Fury Road came in second at $44.4 million with both of them solidly moving The Avengers: Age of Ultron out of the top spot.

When it’s not right, it’s not right. Ask Kip Moore. He finished his second album a year ago, but it wasn’t right, so he trashed it and started over. His new efforts will be released later this year… Hopefully Kip finds them more appealing!

Reba McEntire is asking for your prayers. She posted her request to Facebook asking for prayers for her brother Pake McEntire who had a stroke last week after having complications from back surgery. Pake had a top 5 song in 1986 called Savin’ My Love for You.

This weekend, it’s your chance to see Billy Currington! He’s playing Saturday at 5pm at Lake Fork north of Tyler, TX for the Toyota Texas Bass Classic. You can also see Lee Brice at the event Sunday and Rodney Atkins and Joe Nichols will perform on Monday!
