Hurt Hand Forces Garth Brooks to Reschedule Preview of His New Album to Oct. 26

Garth Brooks had planned to give fans a live interactive preview of his upcoming album, Fun, on TalkShopLive and GarthBrooks.com on Oct. 21, however, a hand injury forced the G-man to reschedule the event to Oct. 26.

Garth injured a couple of digits on his left hand while working on his farm.

“I kept trying—all the way up to showtime—to play, thinking that it was going to eventually get better,” said Garth. “And then finally just had to give in to the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to play for tonight’s show. Hopefully Monday everything will be better, and we’ll be right back up running again.”

Fans had hoped to hear Garth and Trisha sample their new single, “Shallow.” Penned by Lady Gaga, Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando and Mark Ronson for the 2018 movie, A Star is Born, “Shallow” was recorded as a duet by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. The tune garnered widespread critical acclaim and netted numerous awards.

Tune in to Inside Studio G via Facebook on Oct. 26 for the rescheduled gig with Garth and Trisha.

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.”
