Little Big Town’s “Wine, Beer, Whiskey” Goes Platinum at the Opry

Little Big Town’s “Wine, Beer, Whiskey” Goes Platinum at the Opry

This past weekend Little Big Town got a surprise during their appearance at the Grand Ole Opry – they found out that their song “Wine, Beer, Whiskey” has been certified Platinum!

Karen Fairchild says the track was born from an innocent question…but that type of feel good carefree music is probably just what everyone is looking for this summer. “I really love the spirit of this song so much. We wrote it and it was really just like in the moment – ‘Hey, who wants a glass of wine or a beer or whiskey?’ And next thing you know we have a song, so, it’s a jam. It’s a party, and that’s what we need right now.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
