Bluegrass crowd favorites Lorraine Jordan & Carolina have turned a lot of heads with their latest project, Country Grass.  The band continues to leave their mark on the genre with the latest video for "Do You Wanna Go to Heaven."  The track features 21-time country chart-topper T.G. Sheppard on the classic song, which recently celebrated its 35th Anniversary since topping the country charts.

"I've always loved bluegrass music," says Sheppard on the heels of releasing his latest critically acclaimed album, Legendary Friends & Country Duets. "I'm glad that this song turned out so well," he adds of the hit song, which is one of his biggest hits.

Country Grass is the latest trend in bluegrass music, where the award-winning Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road  teamed up with some of the biggest names in classic country.  The tracks were recorded with the original singers on lead, with Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road singing along, this time with invigorating bluegrass instrumentals. The star-studded project also features collaborations with Crystal Gayle, Lee Greenwood, The Kentucky Headhunters, John Conlee, Eddy Raven, and Marty Raybon in addition to the late Jim Ed Brown and Lynn Anderson.

There is no shortage of Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road, as the band embarks on a whirlwind tour later this year, with upcoming stops throughout North America (see dates below). They will be appearing at several bluegrass festivals, where fans can pick up their very own copy of Country Grass. They are also bringing back their popular hosted Christmas in the Smokies Bluegrass Festival December 7-10 in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

Comedy-Laden Clip Goes Live This Saturday (2/13)

With a storyline reminiscent of Groundhog Day, Justin Moore goes back in time for a wild Western showdown in the new music video for his latest release “You Look Like I Need a Drink.” The clip premieres exclusively on beginning at 12:01am ET on Saturday, February 13 in addition to the on-air debut during CMT Hot 20 Countdown at 9am ET. The video will be available to all partners on Monday, February 15.

Directed by Shane Drake and shot in Los Angeles, Moore is able to live out all of his Western fantasies. Between riding a horse, tumbleweeds, bandits and bar fights, there is no shortage of classic Wild West flavor on screen.

“This may be my favorite video I’ve ever shot,” shared Moore. “I am a huge Western fan, and we shot one with a dose of comedy.”

“He keeps repeating the day only in different ways and different forms and shapes,” continued Drake of the plot. “We had to keep redressing the same set and have Justin do a lot of the same actions…”

Moore is on the hunt for a wanted lady and must repeat the same day – walking in the same bar – but in different circumstances each time until he finds the woman on the poster.

Moore will perform “You Look Like I Need A Drink,” along with his five chart-topping hits, on the road this summer with Brantley Gilbert’s TAKE IT OUTSIDE TOUR. For more information and tour dates, please visit
