Brett Eldredge To Appear At Virtual Grammy Museum Event

Country star Brett Eldredge will appear with producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk at a Grammy Museum virtual event this month.

The Museum's Public Programs digital series features new intimate sit-down interviews with artists and musicians recorded via Zoom, while the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles remains closed in the wake of COVID-19.

Eldredge's performance is scheduled for July 11, the day after the release of his fifth album, Sunday Best.

Five songs on the album were jointly written by Eldridge, Tashian and Fitchuk.

Other highlights of this month's Grammy digital public programs include acclaimed songwriter/producer Butch Walker, virtuoso guitarist Christie Lenée, pop sensation MAX, Grammy-nominated funk fusion band Lettuce, and Zakiya Hooker.

On July 10, the Museum will also unveil its latest digital exhibit, The Road to the Grammy Awards.

Chase Rice Responds To Backlash Over Lack Of Social Distancing At Concert

Chase Rice posted a video on Instagram on Monday (June 29) giving his response to complaints about the lack of social distancing at his concert in Tennessee (on June 27) that saw a gathering of around 1,000 people with most of them not wearing face masks.

Rice faced criticism from several singers for hosting the gig, with many saying he has a disregard for public health. Kelsea Ballerini called Rice "selfish" online.

"Everybody had a blast," Rice said in the video. "But then, once I posted the video, a lot of people seeing that online had a big problem with how the show looked, how the show went down."

"I understand that there's a lot of varying opinions, a lot of different opinions on COVID-19, how it works with live music crowds and what all that looks like. My biggest thing is y'all. Y'all are why I get to write songs, y'all are why I get to tour the country, why I get to do live shows and sing these songs to you guys and you guys sing them back. You guys are everything to me, so your safety is a huge priority," he added.

Brian May, vice president of the Brushy Mountain Group, said that all local requirements were abided by for last Saturday's concert, and numerous precautions were taken.

"All guests were given temperature checks prior to entering the venue and free hand sanitizer was provided to everyone at entry," he added.

Dan + Shay Postpone The (Arena) Tour Until 2021

Country duo Dan + Shay have joined the extensive list of musicians who have postponed their nationwide tours until 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

One half of the group, Dan Smyers released an official statement via Twitter, sharing that they though "have been holding on to the hope that something might shift, something might change, that we might actually be able to make these shows happen," it does not seem like a good idea to continue with the tour at the time being "out of the respect and safety of our fans, our band, our crew and everyone involved."

The pair had performed three of the tens of scheduled dates on "The (Arena) Tour," including their two-night run at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, and the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, before they were forced to hit the brakes on the trek due to the pandemic.

A 30-day grace period has been granted to fans who find themselves unable to attend the event on the rescheduled dates in 2021, during which they may avail refunds.
