Kelly Clarkson Honors Garth Brooks with “The Dance”

Kelly Clarkson Honors Garth Brooks with “The Dance”

Did you catch the Kennedy Center Honors telecast this weekend?

Garth Brooks was celebrated along with actress-dancer-choreographer Debbie Allen, singer-songwriter-activist Joan Baez, violinist Midori and beloved TV and film star Dick Van Dyke.

In a show filled with awesome moments and performances, it was Kelly Clarkson‘s version of “The Dance” that has people talking…

When it came to picking a song to sing to honor her friend and musical hero, Kelly says “Honestly, they asked me to do…to do this and I was like, ‘Which song do I pick?’ I was like, ‘There are so many! I could go so many different ways!’ I thought about, you know, going big – I didn’t know what to do. But I love ‘The Dance,’ and I thought it was a special thing ’cause we just shared this moment on my show, so I thought it would be cool.’

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
