Watch Midland Bring Brooks & Dunn Onstage to Perform “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” at the Ryman

Midland—the trio of Mark Wystrach, Cameron Duddy and Jess Carson—capped its Electric Rodeo Tour with a headlining show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on May 5. As you may have expected at a Music City show, there were a few surprise guests.

In addition to Chris Isaak teaming with Midland for a cover of “Wicked Game,” the trio brought Brooks & Dunn onstage for a rendition of “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.”

Midland is featured on Brooks & Dunn’s new album, Reboot, singing the 1992 No. 1 hit with the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

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.”
