Miranda Lambert & George Strait Pay Tribute To Merle Haggard With A Bunch Of Marvelous Music!

Miranda Lambert and George Strait put on a heck of a show at the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards's tonight!

The two of them paid tribute to country legend Merle Haggard, who turned 77-years-old today!!

Wow!!! That's almost 30 years older than the ACMs itself!!

Way to go, sir!!!

While George and Miranda sadly failed to mention any trucks by make or model, we're pretty sure I'm A Lonesome Fugitive is about a road trip that we're forced to assume took place in a truck! So, there's that!

Miranda and George also performed Merle's Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down and, needless to say, they didn't let us down at all!

Ch-ch-check out their pitch-perfect performances (above)!

Merle Haggard Hospitalized

Filed under: Music MinuteHealth

Merle Haggard

Oh no!

Legend Merle Haggard has been hospitalized, and the worst part is that we don't know why… which means we don't know how worried we should be.

But if he's in the hospital, and it forced him to scrap a concert in Georgia at the last minute on Tuesday, then it can't be good at all.

He got sick right before this scheduled show at the MCCon City Auditorium. We're talking minutes before. We bet it was a bummer to everyone in the audience, for sure!

The other show canceled is: Columbus, Georgia on Wednesday (18Jan12). He's due on stage in Kentucky on Thursday (19Jan12), though, so we hope he's feeling better by then!

Oprah Winfrey To Receive Kennedy Honor (And Is A Little Indulgent About It!)

Filed under: Oprah WinfreyPaul McCartneyAwardz

This morning, this year's list of Kennedy Honor recipients was announced. Leading the pack is Oprah Winfrey, whose billionaire status is only surpassed by what she has given back to others, on an off her talk show.

That might sound a little bit like brown-nosing, but don't worry, we haven't said anything about her Oprah wouldn't say about herself!

When asked how she felt about the extreme honor, Oprah didn't seem that surprised to be getting it. She told sources:

"When I've done them in the past for people, it has always felt a little bit like being bombarded with a love festival that is about you, and you know that's gotta feel good…I love surprising people, I don't like being surprised. Releasing any kind of control over a show and allowing myself to sit there and be surprised is not going to be easy but I'm willing to do that."

Humble as always, BB!

The other esteemed honorees this year include dancer, choreographer and director Bill T. Jones, country singer-songwriter Merle Haggard, Broadway composer and lyricist Jerry Herman and legendary former Beatles member, Paul McCartney.

Congrats to all!
