How Brad Paisley Spreads Kindness

Compliments and Gratitude Go a Long Way.  I don’t think we’ve ever needed kindness more. It’s one of the only silver linings around the cloud hovering over Houston right now.

When you see neighbors rescuing neighbors, and strangers helping strangers, it makes you think that the whole world has accepted the Kindness Challenge.

One of the recent country stars to join the K.C. is Brad Paisley. He accepted the challenge from actor Olivia Munn, and shared some quick advice on how he stays kind.

“Ten seconds of how I spread kindness,” Paisley says in his Instagram video. “Go.”

“First of all, compliment people. Look for the positive. Say something nice about them. Look for the things they do or say that you love.

“And then also, say thank you. Saying thank you is key these days when somebody does something for you,” he says.

When he was done, he challenged fellow artist Darius Rucker and country radio’s Cody Alan and Bobby Bones to share their kind of kindness with their followers to keep the chain going.

On Monday (Aug. 28), Paisley also tweeted a story about a man in Texas City who had a boat and was planning on saving some lives.

Luke Bryan’s Equipment Truck Crashes Into Overpass

This is no time to make “Crash My Party” or “This Is How We Roll” jokes.

A Tractor trailer carrying equipment for Luke Bryan’s Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day Tour crashed into an overpass early Monday morning (Aug. 28) on a Long Island parkway.

The equipment truck wedged under the overpass at 2:30 a.m. after Luke’s concert at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Aug. 27, causing two lanes of traffic to be shut down.

Thankfully, no one was injured.

Photos from the scene show the crumpled truck bearing Luke’s face. Luke’s tour picks back up on Sept. 6 in Scranton, Pa.

And now, I take a moment to acknowledge some really awesome people with a lot of money who have helped raise over a million bucks for the Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts already - The Kardashians, Chris Brown, Beyonce, Drake, The Chainsmokers, Chris Young, DJ Khaled, Nicki Minaj and others I don't have readily available have made pledges totaling over a MILLION BUCKS in just a day after Kevin Hart first challenged all of them to match or beat his donation of $25 grand.  While there aren't a lot of us who could give even close to that amount of cash, even a few bucks would be great.  If you'd like to kick in to the Hurricane Harvey Relief effort, every little bit helps - I have all of the links posted at hot100now.com.  At last check, the death toll had reached 30 people - and there are millions of people displaced by the storm.  Again, all of the links are posted on the left hand side of the page at hot100now.com.  Please do what you can!


The family of two Lynyrd Skynyrd bandmembers killed by the 1977 plane crash have won an injunction against 'Street Survivor.'  The movie is a story of the Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash - and the problem is that Artimus Pyle, a former drummer for the band, contributed to the film - but had signed away his right to do that very thing decades ago.  According to lore, the survivors of the 1977 plane crash that killed two of the band's original members took a "blood oath" never to use the name Lynyrd Skynyrd again. That pact was tested a decade later by a "Lynyrd Skynyrd Live" album in conjunction with a 1987 tour. Afterwards, the parties entered into a settlement agreement, adopted by a judge as a "Consent Order." One of the signatories was Artimus Pyle.  When word of Street Survivor got around, heirs of Van Zant and Gaines - the two who died in the crash - as well as founding lead guitarist Gary Rossington sued the makers and alleged Pyle assisted the making of the movie in violation of his agreements.  In an opinion released Monday, U.S. District Court Judge Robert Sweet wrote "Cleopatra is prohibited from making its movie about Lynyrd Skynyrd when its partner substantively contributes to the project in a way that, in the past, he willingly bargained away the very right to do just that; in any other circumstance, Cleopatra would be as 'free as a bird' to make and distribute its work."


The new "It" movie is being blamed for scaring off business for working clowns - and they're not happy about it!  Producers of the new flick argue that the movie's main villain, Pennywise, is just another in the history of the horror genre.  In an interview, producer Seth Grahame-Smith said "It’s not as if a group of NHL goalies got up and protested Jason or a group of toy manufacturers protested Chucky."  In April, filmmaker Stephen King tweeted that real clowns were mad at him. He said "Sorry, most are great. BUT ... kids have always been scared of clowns.  Don't kill the messengers for the message."
