September 7th: On this day

1949
"Lovesick Blues" by Hank Williams with His Drifting Cowboys was at #1 on the US singles chart. The song first appeared in the 1922 musical Oh, Ernest and was recorded by Emmet Miller in 1928 and later by country music singer Rex Griffin.

Crystal Gayle was at #1 on the US Country chart with “Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue". The song was written by Richard Leigh and first appeared on Gayle's 1977 album, We Must Believe in Magic.

In 1999, the song was recognized by ASCAP as one of the ten most-performed songs of the 20th century.

HOLLYWOOD

 

Here's one of those Hollywood couples that make you go, "Really?"  Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx!  It's been rumored for years that they were a thing, but now, Daily Mail has PROOF -  Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes have been photographed, not just together, but holding hands and walking on a beach.  And if you go WAY back, it seems as though they MET through Katie's ex, Tom Cruise.  When Foxx won his Best Actor Oscar for Ray in 2005, he had also been nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role as a cabdriver who's forced to chauffeur Cruise's hit man around L.A. in the 2004 thriller Collateral. It was at that time that Foxx and Cruise became friends - or at least colleagues.  Then, in April 2005, Cruise met Holmes and within weeks they were spotted together in Italy. He declared his love for his new girlfriend on Oprah Winfrey's couch in May and by the time their respective films War of the Worlds and Batman Begins came out within a week of each other in June, they were engaged.  That ended in divorce, yada yada yada, there's rumors of the two keeping the relationship a secret over a contract Holmes had with the Church Of Scientology - who knows... but might they finally be able to love each other out loud now, four years after rumors of the two falling for each other first started to hit the tabloids?

 

North and Saint West are getting a little sibling!  The surrogate who Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian West hired to carry their third child is pregnant.  Kardashian West, 36, and West, 40, were married in May 2014. Son Saint is 21 months old, while daughter North turned 4 in June.

 

And speaking of the Kardashian Clan, The Los Angeles County Fire Department has confirmed that they responded to a call at Scott Disick's home last month.  A spokesperson for the department says on August 18th, they arrived to Disick's residence after a call came in for a possible 5150 psychiatric hold on a male at the house. The responders, who noted that the man was non-violent when they arrived at the residence, then transported him to a local hospital.  News of the fire department being called out to the 34-year-old reality star's house comes nearly two years after Disick spent a month in a drug and alcohol rehab center.  No word yet from Scott's people.

 

And quick props to Dave Matthews Band, Ariana Grande, Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake, The Roots, Chris Stapleton, Brittany Howard and Cage The Elephant.  Those artists as well as others yet to be announced are performing a FREE benefit concert in Charlottesville.  While tickets to the event are free,  if financially able, you're encouraged to give a donation in exchange for your ticket. The money raised will go to the Charlottesville victims, their families, first responders, and organizations devoted to the promotion of healing, unity and justice locally and nationwide.  The concert is set for Sunday, September 24th.
