Westwood One Nashville’s nationally syndicated radio show, Nights With Elaina, will feature a very special group of guest hosts on May 18–22.

Carly Pearce (May 18), Gabby Barrett (May 19), Lindsay Ell (May 20), Ingrid Andress (May 21) and Ashley McBryde (May 22) will each guest host one evening from their homes, providing listeners with an update on everything going on in their lives during the quarantine.

“Spending time away from listeners is always difficult, especially in these times,” says host Elaina Smith. “But I am so thrilled that these strong, powerful, talented women will be keeping everyone company while I’m gone. I know they are gonna crush it and continue spreading positivity all throughout the country. Lord knows we need it.”

Nights With Elaina airs from 7 p.m. to midnight, local time, featuring artist interviews, listener calls and 14-15 songs per hour.

On May 13, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation named Elaina as the recipient of the Gracie Award for Nationally Syndicated Radio Host/Personality.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
