The evening was the playlist of our dreams. A live, acoustic shuffle of ballads and classics, heartbreakers and soul-renewers that breath life and compassion into us. Proceeds from the show went to Folds of Honor, which provides educational support to the spouses and children of our fallen and injured soldiers. Every seat in the house was donned with a white bandana and a small American flag. Rather than the customary red curtain, a larger than life American flag hung center stage pre-show. At 7:30 p.m. Drew Walker welcomed us into the night and Jim Cornelison, voice of the Chicago Blackhawks, delivered the National Anthem.

As this is Ballerini's last show before getting married, she 'unapologetically' showcases her broad vocal range.

Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker talked about the EP's opening track, "List Of People (To Try And Forget About)," with Zane Lowe, saying that it was written during sessions for the band's 2012 album, Lonerism.
"I guess one of the reasons it didn't end up on (2015 release Currents) is because it was started on so early and I was so over it by the time I was finishing the album," Parker said. "But by the time I got to finish it I was really satisfied with it as a song, and as a chunk of my creativity and emotion and stuff."
The new EP comes as part of an expanded edition of Currents, which is due to debut this Friday, Nov. 17. Stream ithere.
The Residency is the name of the program Macklemore and Lewis launched back in 2015, with the initiative of mentoring young artists from low-income communities on how to make a living from creative endeavors.
"Ryan Lewis and I helped launch The Residency so that young aspiring hip-hop artists in Seattle have a chance to pursue their passions in music," Macklemore told Billboard. "Travis was a standout in the first year of the program, came back in a leadership role the next year, and it's been incredible to watch him grow as an artist over the last three years."
Thompson went on to collaborate with Macklemore on the song "Corner Store" from his latest album, Gemini, and is on the road as part of the current tour. It's the song they performed together on Fallon. Watch the performancehere.
"This World Children's Day, I am teaming up with UNICEF to remind the world that children and young people's voices matter and that their perspectives must be included in the decisions that will shape their future," she said in a statement.
For the project, children from over 130 countries were chosen to perform in their own music video of "What About Us," in recognition of the day, reports Billboard.
"I am excited to lend "What About Us" to a global kids take over on Nov. 20 as we celebrate the power of kids around the world speaking out about the issues that affect them," P!nk continued.
As part of the take over initiative, The United Nations has "invited children from around the world to take over key roles in media, politics, business, sport and entertainment to voice their support for millions of their peers who are unschooled, unprotected and uprooted on 20th November."
"From Auckland to Amman and from New York to N'Djamena, we want children to campaign in their schools and communities to help save children's lives, fight for their rights and fulfill their potential," said Justin Forsyth UNICEF Deputy Executive Director. "World Children's Day will be a day for children, by children." Check out the videohere.
In an interview with Radio.com at US99's Stars and Strings Concert in Chicago, Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood explain the effect the military has had on their families.
"My brother-in-law Robertson, he's in the military right now," Kelley explains. "He feels like [he has] such a purpose right now. He decided not to go to college and joined the military. I'm so proud of him. He's not sure where he's going to get stationed yet. He just got through boot camp. It's such a sacrifice thinking about when he comes back and we get to catch up. I say, 'What is it like?' and I could just see the pride on his face. It's definitely a sacrifice I don't know if I could make."
Haywood, meanwhile, has a cousin in the Navy and admits that the time away from home is the ultimate sacrifice for families. "I think the families sacrifice so much. My cousin's in the Navy. He's been to Japan and Hawaii for years," Haywood explains. "He comes home once a year, twice a year at most. His wife and three kids hardly ever get to see him. It's a big honor for us to be here and to celebrate the families that are supporting to all those who serve. That's a huge sacrifice to be away." Read morehere.

"That's a highlight every night for me to bring these guys out and do that," he shares. "The most memorable moment of that for me was, I looked over and they [do the salute] and they're standing there at attention and one of them was crying.
"That killed me. That only happened maybe once that I saw. Can you imagine that? They're in front of a crowd of people that are giving them that kind of accolade and they deserve more."
That's not all Paisley does for our troops though. He often buys them a beer afterward. "They deserve something," he adds. Read morehere.
Smith said that Michael supported his career by sending flowers and words of encouragement, though they never met. In addition, the singer called Rihanna his "spirit animal" and said he aspires to be more like her.
"She inspires me a lot because I think she's just unapologetically herself and that's something that I'm trying to do," said Smith. "I want to be a role model, but I don't want to be a perfect role model. Like, I go and have mad nights out, just like she would." Read morehere.
