Since the pandemic started, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has lost an estimated $35 million in revenue. To help raise money, the staff came up with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity called Big Night at the Museum. More than a dozen artists were given the opportunity to play an instrument originally owned by one of their heroes, to cover a song of their choice. It's very rare that these priceless and delicate instruments are taken out of their cases. Big Night at the Museum premieres on YouTube on Wednesday night at 9pm. It's free to watch, but donations to the Hall of Fame are encouraged.

Dierks Bentley and his family have temporarily moved away from Nashville and are living in Colorado. Dierks is loving it. His kids....not so much. "They can't wait to come back. They're having a good time where they are but they love the city, they love their friends, obviously," he shares. "But they're looking forward to coming back, so we'll be back at some point." Dierks says it actually took some coercing to get the kids to agree to leave Nashville in the first place.
