PAT BOONE ON THE ROAD AGAIN AT 90 WITH SHOTGUN WILLIE NELSON
Pat Boone joins fellow singing actor Shotgun Willie Nelson with a humorous homily about the secret to his longevity in his 70 years in show business.
Pat has sold more than 45 million albums and starred in 12 Hollywood movies.
Boone was the second biggest-charting artist of the late 1950s, behind Elvis Presley, and was ranked No. 9 in its listing of the Top 100 Top 40 Artists 1955–1995.
His 1963 album Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport featured the late Rolf Harris hit.
As an author Boone had a number-one bestseller in the 1950s - Twixt Twelve and Twenty.
This time he showed his love for Grits with a vast cast of gals and cartoon pals.
This foot-stomping, heartwarming song is an ode to Southern traditions, embracing the spirit of camaraderie and joy that defines country music.
Grits features guests, including Ray Stevens, Gatlin Brothers, Lorrie Morgan, Deborah Allen, and Dean Miller as Pat sings “Grits is the bestest food there is.”
It's on his latest 25 song double album Country Jubilee that also features a new video with Crystal Gayle, daughter of the late coalminer's daughter Loretta Lynn, for their remake of You and I - a #1 hit for Crystal and Eddie Rabbit took in 1982.
The new video features still photos of Pat and his late wife Shirley to whom he dedicated the video.
Country Jubilee was released on September 8 on Boone's 20-year-old music imprint, The Gold Label with Boone Executive Producer and Dana McElwain Producer.
BAILEY ZIMMERMAN IN LOVE AGAIN
Illinois young gun Bailey Zimmerman lost his belle to a South Carolina colt in his new video but fell in love with Australia when he toured here with Tennessean star Morgan Wallen in March.
Bailey, now 23, returns for the Riding Hearts festival on November 5 at Royal Melbourne showgrounds.
Bailey was born in Louisville , Illinois , and chose a music career after he worked meat packing and on a union gas pipeline.
He returned to fitting tyres in his Fall in Love video on debut album Religiously.
KIP RETURNS FOR MOORE
Georgian Kip Moore, now 43, performed at Margaret Court arena with Randy Houser in March and is back on the road again.
But not with the femme fatale who wakes before taking her train trip in his latest video.
Sometimes She Stays is on his fifth album Damn Love.
Moore played the 2018 CMC Rocks Queensland festival and the Forum in Melbourne CBD on his tour with Lee Brice and Charlie Worsham.
Moore, one of six children, debuted at Snowy Mountains country festival in Thredbo and CMC Rocks Queensland in 2016.
He also produced 33 minute documentary The Journey To Slowheart.

MO PITNEY HOME ON THE RANGE IN ILLINOIS
Illinois star Mo Pitney joins Pat Boone in our delicious double shot in Behind Bars.
Mo, now 30, was born in Cherry Valley, Illinois , and returned there with his singing spouse Emily of the Banksters bluegrass band and their two sons.
Old Home Place is on his second 13 track album Ain't Looking Back that also features Alabama outlaw singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson, now 48.
Mo spoke from experience in his previous Mattress On The Floor video that features a blue-collar couple struggling to make ends meet.
He also vividly illustrated his life when he fronted Nu Country with his Ain't Bad For A Good Old Boy video.
Mo and Emily wed in March, 2016, in her home town Carbondale before welcoming daughter Evelyne.
LONG & SHORT OF IT RESURRECT AVICI
Williamstown duo The Long & Short Of It boomerang to our show with a bluegrass twist.
Long time lawyer Patsy Toop OAM and Yarraville singer-signwriter David Baird lead a singalong of the Avici hit Wake Me Up.
They cut their vocals in their Soggy Records studio in Yarraville and the music was recorded in Nashville and mixed by Kenny Royster.
Wake Me Up follows their seventh album Midnight Choir.
They illustrated their evocative story of a father raising his son in their powerful previous video That's Why I'm Here about a father and son starting on bikes before graduating to four wheels.
" That's Why I'm Here is a song that was inspired by our co-writer, Kenny Royster. A story told about a father raising his child and the close bond that develops. The son becomes the carer for his father, looking after him until he passes. The son then takes solace in his faith.” - The Long & Short Of It revealed.
LOREN RYAN AND DAUGHTER DEBUT
Tamworth Star Maker winner Loren Ryan, aged 28, debuts with her daughter Charlie in her new video.
Suddenly was the first single on her debut EP she promoted at the 50th CMA festival in Nashville in June.
She previously released Bounce Back and Eventually as singles after appearing on The Voice.
Loren said, "I love the realness of this music video, it's a peak into our life. When I'm not on the road I like to be present with my daughter, her laughter is bliss. Jeremy Minett did an awesome job of capturing us in the moment. This is my first music video, and I have an overwhelming sense of pride in being able to share this milestone with my daughter Charlie."
