Guitarist Harold Bradley has died. The Country Music Hall of Fame member passed away in his sleep on Thursday morning at the age of 93.

Believed to be the most recorded instrumentalist in history, Bradley was a member of Nashville's famed "A Team" of session musicians, as well as co-owner of the Bradley Film & Recording Studios (more well known as the Quonset Hut) with his brother, Owen Bradley. Theirs was the first entertainment company on what would become Nashville's Music Row.

Bradley played electric bass on Patsy Cline's "Crazy" and the banjo on Johnny Horton's "The Battle of New Orleans." As a rhythm guitarist, he played on thousands of recordings, including Brenda Lee's "I'm Sorry," Roger Miller's "King of the Road," Jeannie C. Riley's "Harper Valley P.T.A.," Bobby Vinton's "Blue Velvet," Burl Ives' "Holly Jolly Christmas," Tammy Wynette's "Stand by Your Man" and Conway Twitty's "Hello Darlin'." 

Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines is in a nasty legal battle with her estranged husband, Adrian Pasdar, over their prenup.

Pasdar agrees that the couple did sign a “valid enforceable agreement.” He also agrees that they each retain ownership of the property that was theirs before the marriage and that the royalties from their respective work remain completely separate. What he’s challenging is the fact that he won’t receive spousal support.

According to Padar’s lawyer: “Natalie’s assets and income are far greater than Adrian’s. At present, Adrian lacks the financial resources from which to support himself and their children at a level anywhere near the marital standard.”

Pasdar would like $60,000 a month - $44,076 a month in spousal and an additional $16,427 in child support. He says anything less would be very difficult for him.

The 25-year-old singer turned to Twitter on Tuesday morning (Jan. 29) to post a picture of the passenger seat of his truck, where an Elvis Presley CD, a charger cord and some other CDs and bits of paper lie scattered.
 
He wrote, "Get back to Nashville to find my truck broken into.  Just want to apologize to whoever did this... You really picked the wrong country singer's truck to break into. Got nothing for ya ... That is, unless you’re a big fan of Elvis or the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack."

Wynonna has signed with the indie label, ANTI- Records.  

She explains, "Now more than ever, I am on a mission to rediscover the reason I got into this business, and Anti- is giving me the musical freedom to do that."

As an example, Wynonna recorded an a capella version of the classic Nina Simone song "Feeling Good" in her living room, straight into her iPhone.

Wynonna, who started off as one-half of The Judds with her mother Naomi, will be on tour throughout the U.S. this year with her band.

Other pre-race celebrities yet to be announced include the national anthem singer, the grand marshal and the honorary starter.

Lauren Alaina was a special guest at Luke Bryan's 2019 Crash My Playa, and country stars they teamed for a duet of Florida Georgia Line's "Meant to Be".

At one point, Luke forgot the words. Video captured by a fan and shared on Twitter seems to show the superstar handing the singing duties to Alaina, who saved him.
