For his new single, “This Old House,” Clint Black enlisted the vocal talents of eight of his friends: Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley, Cody Jinks, Sara Evans, Michael Ray, Darius Rucker, Travis Tritt and Steve Wariner.

The new tune, which pays homage to the Grand Ole Opry, is the lead single to Clint’s upcoming album, Still Killin’ Time, which drops on Nov. 8.

Clint produced the video for “This Old House,” which features archival footage from the Grand Ole Opry and marks the first time the stage and backstage dressing room area have been featured in a music video.

“It’s such an honor to have these great artists agree to sing on this record and the willingness of the Opry to open its archives and its doors to me for the making of the video is more than I could’ve dreamed,” says Clint. “This has been one of the most exciting experiences in my entire career.”

A portion of the proceeds from “This Old House” will benefit the Opry Trust Fund, which supports members of the country music community in need.

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.”
