Garth Brooks has received many honors throughout his illustrious career, and he can add one more to the list.

Garth, already in the International Songwriters Hall of Fame, The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame, can add one more Hall to the list.

Garth isn’t the only musician to get the honor this time around. The 2016 inductees also include Lou Bradley, Don Felder, Mark Miller, Jerry Reed (posthumously), Allen Reynolds, Ron “Snake” Reynolds, Sigma Sound Studio Rhythm Section, Ricky Skaggs and Joe Tarsia.

The induction ceremony will take place on Oct. 26 at the Historic Nashville Municipal Auditorium. Tickets will be available on Sept. 12 at Ticketmaster.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
