The 69th Emmy Awards Photo Gallery With Keith Urban, Dolly Parton, Jennifer Nettles & More

The 69th Emmy Awards got more than a little country flavor last night as Dolly Parton, Keith Urban and Jennifer Nettles made appearances.

Dolly and Jennifer were in the house as their made-for-TV movie, Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, was nominated for Outstanding Television Movie. The holiday television special, which starred Jennifer, Ricky Schroder, Gerald McRaney and Alyvia Alyn Lind, was bested by Netflix’s Black Mirror: San Junipero.

Dolly also reunited with her 9 to 5 cohorts Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda to present the Emmy for Best Supporting Actor.

“If it hadn’t been for good support,” Dolly said, referencing her breasts, “Shock and Awe here would be more like Flopsy and Droopy.”

Keith Urban was in attendance to support his wife, Nicole Kidman, who took home the trophy for Best Lead Actress for her role in Big Little Lies.

“I have a huge artistic family who have supported me throughout all my ups and downs,” said Nicole, in part, during her acceptance speech. “You have been so loyal to me throughout my whole life, thank you for that.

“I also am a mother and a wife. I have two little girls, Sunnie and Faith. And my darling Keith, who I asked to help me pursue this artistic path. And they have to sacrifice so much for it.

“So this is yours.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
