Chris Stapleton is featured on Sheryl Crow's new track titled, “Tell Me When It’s Over."

Sheryl and Chris co-penned the new tune for Sheryl’s upcoming album of collaborations, "Threads", which is set to drop on August 30th.

The 17-song album features collaborations with a number of country artists, including Maren Morris, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Margo Price, Jason Isbell, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill and more.

Brantley Gilbert announced that his new album, "Fire & Brimstone", will be released October 4th.

This marks the Georgia native's first album in almost three years, following 2017's T"he Devil Don't Sleep". The LP will feature Lindsay Ell, Colt Ford, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss and Lukas and Willie Nelson. "Bad Boy" is the latest single, while “What Happens In a Small Town,” “Man That Hung the Moon,” “Not Like Us” and “Welcome to Hazeville” are all also out now.
 
All 15 tracks on the album were written and co-written by the country singer-songwriter and focus in on being a father and a husband.

Confederate Railroad has lost out on two gigs over its name and logo, but the country rock band is moving full steam ahead.

Frontman Danny Shirley said, "I am who I am. We will keep doing what we do. The name of my band ain't gonna change."

The Georgia band was scheduled to perform Thursday at the Ulster County Fair in upstate New York. But a week before, fair officials canceled the appearance over the group's name and logo, which features a steam locomotive flying two Confederate flags.

Critics say the Confederate flag is a racist symbol that represents a war to uphold slavery and, later, efforts against civil rights advances.  

Illinois canceled a state fair appearance by Confederate Railroad, scheduled for August 27, for similar reasons.

But Shirley explains, "I've been performing for more than 43 years and, hell, I've never seen anything like this."

He added, "Look, if you don't want to come see us, that's your choice. We're listening to you. You'll just miss out on a damn good time."

Toby Keith has compiled 16 tracks, including four new ones, for "Greatest Hits: The Show Dog Years", set for an October 25th release on his label, Show Dog Records. The most current singles on the album include “Don’t Let the Old Man In” and “That’s Country Bro,” as well as a new composition, “Back in the 405.”

The collection also includes the No. 1 singles “American Ride,” “God Love Her,” “Love Me If You Can,” “Made in America” and “She Never Cried in Front of Me,” as well as Top 10 hits like “Beers Ago,” “Cryin’ for Me (Wayman’s Song),” “High Maintenance Woman,” “Lost You Anyway,” and of course the party anthem “Red Solo Cup.”

Dierks Bentley was a performer on the "Today" show. And became a new dog owner.

The country artist appeared on the morning show's concert series and then in a third-hour segment about shelter dogs. He served as a human holder of Goose, one of several dogs up for adoption.

But after scratching Goose's neck and petting the canine's face, Bentley wasn't willing to give up the 8-week-old border collie mix when the show was over. Viewers could see the musician lift the dog up high, Simba-style, and stare lovingly into the pup's eyes during the live show.

Dierks said, "I feel a connection. I feel it's meant to be." He later confirmed that he decided to officially add Goose to his family. 

He told his Instagram followers, "I didn't think I was going to get another dog, we already have two. But, I mean, come on. How can you say no to that (face)?"

Later, Bentley posted an Instagram Story of Goose sitting next to him on his Burning Man tour bus.

"Road dog! He's learning the ropes … literally," Bentley joked, showing off Goose's rope toy. "Welcome to the road, Goose."

Head to Nashville if you want an extra helping of Johnny Cash.

"I am thrilled about the new restaurant," says John Carter Cash. "Dad's favorite foods in the world are exactly what you will find on the menu. I remember my father and mother bringing me to Swett's when I was but a small boy. Southern cooking was my father's very life blood and tradition, and I firmly believe it does not get any better than this."

Chris Janson will release his third major label disc, "Real Friends," on October 18th.

Janson explains, "I made 'Real Friends' with actual real friends. I produced the album with real friends, wrote all the songs with real friends, took all the photos for the project with my best friend and wife, Kelly, and I also have a huge collaboration on this album with one of my favorite 'Ole' friends! I'm more excited about music now than I have been in all of my career. Thank you to my fans, who truly are my real friends and helped me get where I am today."

Janson's current single is "Good Vibes," co-written by Janson, Ashley Gorley and Zach Crowell. He will play the song on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Wednesday, August 7th.

During Inside Studio G on Facebook Live on July 29th, Garth Brooks revealed the location and venue for the second stop of his Dive Bar Tour: Buck Owens' Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, Calif.

The date of Garth's show won't be unveiled until Tuesday morning (July 30) via country radio in the region at 7:07 a.m. local time. Country radio is also the only place where people can secure tickets to the barroom event.

"What I love about the dive bars is it's got all the electricity of the stadium show, and it's packed in this little room," Garth says. "Stadiums are the right size for 'That Summer,' 'Friends in Low Places,' 'The Thunder Rolls,' 'Dive Bar.' Those songs fill up that stadium. But I've also gotta tell ya--they're so much at home in a honky-tonk. So, Bakersfield, here we come!"

The Crystal Palace is a special location for the G-man, as it's the spot where he asked Trisha Yearwood to marry him in 2005.

Garth's seven-date Dive Bar Tour takes its name from his current single, "Dive Bar," which features Blake Shelton. Garth's first show took place at Joe's on Weed Street in Chicago on July 15th.
