Disney announced that a “Moana” sequel will hit theaters November 27th.

The Toby Keith stories keep rolling in.  Here are some highlights:

1.  Did you know that Toby was a professional football player?  Before he made a name for himself in country music, he used to work in an oil field.  And during that time, he played for a semi-professional team called the Oklahoma Drillers.

2.  Toby loved to golf and even has a song we can’t say on the radio, but it rhymes with “[Witty] Golfer”.  The PGA Tour put together some awesome clips of him playing golf.

3.  Toby completed 18 USO tours since 2002, and publicly supported our troops his whole life.

4.  He called his band the “Easy Money Band” because one of their first gigs was a wedding where they got a thousand bucks.  Easy money indeed.

5.  On Tuesday, Toby was the top trending search term in both America and Canada.  In Canada, he even beat out hockey that day.  That’s a big deal.

Another great Toby Keith story:  Willie Nelson once got Toby SUPER high. He said, “Willie’s got that real chronic, medicinal stuff . . . I couldn’t even function.  It was like, the most hardcore weed that I’d ever had, and I’d only hit it like three or four times, and unlike Bill Clinton I did inhale.” It was such a landmark moment in Toby’s life, he even wrote a song about it . . . appropriately titled “Weed with Willie”.

The first single from Kacey Musgraves’ new album is out today.  She teased it on social media this week, and posted the lyrics along with a quick clip from it.

Lainey Wilson teased her Coors Light Super Bowl commercial last week.  Well now, we have the real deal.  In it, she’s doing a photo shoot with a horse when the Chill Train drives by and leaves her frosty with a can in-hand.  It also stars LL Cool J as the train conductor.

Demi Moore will star in a new series from the creator of “Yellowstone”.

“Taylor Swift: Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version)” is headed to Disney+ on March 15th.  It’ll include five songs that weren’t in the theatrical or digital release.
