Memorial Day is a special holiday where we all come together to remember and honor the heroes that lost their lives in military service. Here are some of the best songs for Memorial Day. 

1.  “If You’re Reading This” by Tim McGraw.

2.  “Letter from Home” by John Michael Montgomery

6.  “American Soldier” by Toby Keith.

10.  “God Bless the U.S.A.” by Lee Greenwood.

Remember the last time Morgan Wallen was in Nashville and threw a chair off a bar roof. Well his bar in downtown Nashville is set to open this weekend for Memorial Day. There was one small snag. The owners had wanted to put up a 20-foot neon sign with Morgan’s name on it, but that plan was defeated by the Nashville City Council on a vote of 30-3. There is already a sign on the building.  This would have been a second, larger sign. 

Luke Combs was asked about a rumor that he brings a PGA Tour player on the road with him for lessons.  Truth is he regularly flies in a “PGA PRO” for lessons.  One of Luke’s bandmates is good friends with a club pro at a course in Boston.  So they fly him in on weekends to play a few rounds.

Reba McEntire surprised Lainey Wilson on “The Voice” with an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry.  And Lainey shouted out, “Holy moly!” And then said, “[My family] took me to Nashville when I was 9 years old and we went to the Grand Ole Opry . . . I knew that I wanted to play there”.  Lainey will be inducted on June 7th
