Watch Luke Combs and Brooks & Dunn Kick Off the CMT Awards With Performance of “1, 2 Many”

Brooks & Dunn teamed with Luke Combs to help kick off the CMT Music Awards on Oct. 21 by performing “1, 2 Many.”

Keeping with the song’s theme, Luke shotgunned a beer onstage with a hand from Kix Brooks.

“I shotgunned a beer last night on national TV with @BrooksAndDunn,” said Luke via Twitter. “If you would have told me that 5 years ago I would have punched you for lying to me.”

“1, 2 Many” was penned by Luke, Dan Isbell, Ray Fulcher and Jonathan Singleton. The song is featured on Luke’s 2019 album, What You See Is What You Get. The album’s version of the song also features Brooks & Dunn.

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.”
