Watch Toby Keith Honor Harold Reid of the Statler Brothers by Covering “Flowers on the Wall”

Toby Keith paid tribute to the Statler Brothers’ Harold Reid by covering the quartet’s most popular tune, “Flowers on the Wall.” Harold, who passed away on April 24 at the age of 80, was the longtime bass vocalist in the Statler Brothers.

Toby covered “Flowers on the Wall” during his YouTube quarantine series, The Furniture Store Guitar Sessions.

“Boy, we lost a good one . . . Harold Reid of the Statler Brothers, what a legend,” said Toby. “Great guy, great entertainer, great singer. What a career. Rest in peace, Harold. Let’s do a Statler Brothers song today.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
