The Grand Ole Opry tallied its 4,954th consecutive Saturday night broadcast on Dec. 12 with a showcase featuring Scotty McCreery, Brett Young, Dennis Quaid and Chris Young.

Earlier in the day on Dec. 12, news broke that Charley Pride, 86, died in Dallas, Texas, due to complications from Covid-19.

Chris Young decided to honor Charley during his Opry performance by singing “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’.” Penned by Ben Peters, “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’” became Charley’s signature hit. He released the tune in 1971, scoring his eighth No. 1 single.

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
