Chance the Rapper Calls Heineken Commercial 'Racist'

(Radio.com) Chance The Rapper has spoken out against a new Heineken advertisement he finds objectionable. In a series of posts on Twitter, the rapper called out the alcohol brand for being "terribly racist."

George Strait Named Texan of the Year

(EBM) Country music superstar George Strait has been named "Texan of the Year" by the Texas Legislative Conference. At the 52nd annual statewide forum taking place at the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce on Friday, March 23, Strait joins an array of prominent honorees including former U.S. Presidents, Senators, Congressmen, Governors and innovators.

Strait was recognized for his many contributions to the state of Texas throughout the years, particularly within the last year for his role leading recovery efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The Category 4 hurricane ties Hurricane Katrina as the costliest storm to impact the U.S., inflicting damage of over $125 billion and displacing more than 30,000 residents.

Strait immediately set out organizing relief efforts beginning with the "Hand in Hand" Texas benefit concert and telethon. Calling on friends Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen, the concert, broadcast live from The Majestic Theater in San Antonio last fall, helped directly raise over $22 million towards hurricane recovery.

Reba McEntire Surprises Early ACM Winners

(Radio.com) When Reba McEntire calls, country artists listen. Such was the case recently when McEntire rang up Lauren Alaina, Midland and Brett Young to let them know that they were among the most recent class of ACM award winners.

When McEntire informed Alaina that she'd taken the prize for New Female Vocalist of the Year, her reaction had them both in tears. "You're gonna make me cry now cut that out," McEntire told Alaina. "Honey I'm so proud for you. Proud for you and Trisha both. You guys have worked so hard for this, and this is what our business needs, more like you," she added, referencing Alaina's manager, Trisha McClanahan.

"Thank you Trish. I'm sitting here crying myself," McEntire replied after McClanahan said the news couldn't have come from anyone better as the manager hugged Alaina.

"Stop it. Are you serious?," was Brett Young's incredulous reply at getting the call to learn that he'd won Best New Male Vocalist. The singer blushed and smiled as he and McEntire made plans to connect in Vegas for the awards ceremony next month.

For the guys of Midland, it took some convincing for them to even believe it was really McEntire calling them on their tour bus. The band's disbelief only grows when she tells them they've won the award for Best New Vocal Group of the Year.

"We have no words. Usually we're a bunch of smart-mouthed, quick-witted gentlemen, but we have nothing to say. This is unbelievable," the guys exclaim in wonder.

They continued to chat as the group continued to look at each other in shock. Hugs are exchanged when it finally dawns on them that the moment is indeed actually happening. Watch all of the magical moments here.
