News Golf Buddies Clint Eastwood inspired friend Toby Keith to write his latest release (and video) Don’t Let the Old Man In, a nostalgic number that stemmed from a conversation the men had while riding a golf cart at Eastwood’s golf tournament. That was last spring when Toby asked the veteran actor-director what he was up to? When he said he was directing a film “The Mule,” Toby inquired who’s starring in it? “Me,” Clint, 88, blurted out. Toby said that must be a tough task, starring and directing, wondering how Clint kept up such a pace? “I don’t let the old man in,” he retorted. It wasn’t long before Toby took his new creation to Clint, who not only liked the song, but it’s now featured in his film “The Mule,” still showing in cinemas. In it, Eastwood plays an aged drug courier, trying to make a few dollars more, and offers a few surprises. Country fans may recall Eastwood hit #1 on Billboard country charts with his bawdy 1980 duet Barroom Buddies with Merle Haggard. Cash lakeside home on the market Johnny Cash’s estate has listed for $3.95 million, the lakefront proerty located on Old Hickory Lake, Hendersonville, consisting of 4.5 acres where he and singer-wife June Carter resided for 35 years. Stan Peacock, Crye-Leike Realty, says, “It’s the kind of thing that will never be there again once it’s gone.” He points out the property consists of four separate parcels of an acre or more: “A buyer could choose to keep them together and develop one large estate or build several lakeside houses.” There’s a swimming pool, tennis court, a guard station and a covered dock. One of the sites boasts a 546 square foot log cabin, which was used by June to house her wardrobe and personal effects. The couple lived on their property until they died four months apart in 2003 . Radio Hall of Famers Two broadcast favourites of ours, Charlie Monk (known as “The Mayor of Music Row” - right) and Kyle Cantrell (2008 IBMA Bluegrass Broadcaster of the Year), have been named to the Country Radio Hall of Fame. Dan+Shay shared the good news during opening day festivities of Country Radio Seminar (CRS) 2019, Feb.13. These veterans of major stations, including WLAC and WSM, are currently hosting SiriusXM series, and anticipate receiving official indoctrination, June 19 during the annual CRHofF’s annual convention . 6 cmp - MARCH 2019 Carrie Underwood and skating hubby Mike Fisher welcomed their second son, Jacob Bryan, Jan. 21.
