Willie Nelson is Selling His Own Brand of Legal Marijuana

Apr 21, 2015 -- 4:52am

  WILLIE NELSON made it official yesterday . . . he's getting into the marijuana business.  He's launching his own brand of legal weed called Willie's Reserve, and it sounds like it's going to be quality stuff.

He says, quote, "I will make sure it's good or it won't be on sale."  He also promises to "work with the best growers in Colorado and Washington."  He's not just doing this to make a buck.  He wants to "lend support" to the legalization movement. 

At this point, Willie's Reserve will only be sold in Colorado and the state of Washington, which is where recreational marijuana is legal.

In honor of the launch, he released a video of a new song with MERLE HAGGARD called "It's All Going To Pot".  It's the first single from their collaboration album "Django and Jimmie", which is due out June 2nd.

Thompson Square's Tour Bus Was Part of a Chain Reaction Accident . . . They're Okay, But Others Were Injure

Apr 20, 2015 -- 4:54am

THOMPSON SQUARE's tour bus was involved in a chain reaction collision on a foggy highway near Denver, Colorado last Friday.  KEIFER and SHAWNA THOMPSON were not injured.

It started when a tour bus carrying the crew of indie rock singer Twin Shadow hit a stopped truck.  Several people on that bus were injured.  Mr. Shadow and his band were in a separate bus that was also involved, but none of them were seriously hurt.

Thompson Square posted an update on their Facebook page:  "Contrary to reports in the media our band and crew are all okay and injury free, and damage to our crew bus was minimal.  Our thoughts and prayers are with those who were injured."

They Lit a Huge Bonfire at Tyler Hubbard's Bachelor Party

Apr 16, 2015 -- 4:54am

 BRIAN KELLEY of FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE was not exaggerating when he said TYLER HUBBARD's bachelor party would have dirt bikes, whiskey, cigars, and a lot of fires.  If anything, he was way underselling it.

It went down last weekend in Nashville, and Tyler posted a picture on his Instagram of all the guys standing around a huge bonfire.  He also included an exhausting rundown of the action.

He wrote, "Bachelor weekend = dirt bikes, pool, darts, mud, guns, smoke, fire, fish, ranger, Teryx, Sneakey, dogs, golf, chickens, trikes, RC cars, whiskey, tequila, chefs, barbor, omelets, Zaxby's, s'mores, music, basketball, bunks, wrecks, bruises, paintball, prayers, and . . . beer."

("Teryx" is a small off-road vehicle, "Zaxby's" is a restaurant chain, RC cars are radio-controlled toy cars.  Pretty sure Sneakey is an online fantasy game, although that's spelled "Sneaky".  Don't know what "Barbor" is.  Do you?)

CMT caught up with them at the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday.  Brian said the paintball was "intense" and that it was "a hell of a day."  Tyler wouldn't give up the wedding date, but confirmed it'll be this summer.  He added, quote, "It's coming up soon."

Will Garth Brooks Be Lip-Synching at the ACMs?

Apr 15, 2015 -- 4:49am

 Most artists try to hide it when they lip-sync, but GARTH BROOKS is already admitting there's a good chance he'll be doing it at Sunday's ACMs. 

He's wrapping up a five-concert series tomorrow in Portland, Oregon, and he's pretty sure his voice will be shot by then.  So he already has a contingency plan for Sunday. 

He says, quote, "Just in case we have to lip-sync, we taped a performance that was solely made for the awards show.  So we don't know if we're lip-synching or not, but my bet is, if I know Portland, we're not going to get out of here with anything.

"And then you've got to fly down and do that show immediately.  So we'll see how that's going to go."

(You may remember last year when GARY LEVOX of RASCAL FLATTS lip-synched at the ACMs and kind of hoped no one would notice.  People did, so he had to issue a statement saying he'd lost his voice.) 

(I bet Garth's people remembered and told him to get in front of it, just in case.)
