Reba McEntire delivered the heartbreaking message this morning:

Daddy passed away last night in Coalgate, OK at 11 pm CST. He had been in the nursing home for a while and we’re very thankful he is not suffering anymore. He was a born and bred cowboy through and through. He had been sick for 5 years. It makes total sense to me, he always told us kids never to run your horse to the barn. He was just taking his time to go on home.”

Clark McEntire was 86, and the epitome of a country boy. He was a four-time World Champion steer roper in the late ‘50s and ‘60s and in 1979 was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame.

That was also the same year Reba released the song ‘Daddy’ on the ‘Out of a Dream’ album. The song was written about her father.

This week Reba also became the first artist to sign with the Nash Icon Music record label where she plans to release new music in 2015.

Our condolences go out to the family.

Brantley Gilbert is engaged again. This time, the Country Music star plans to tie the knot with the girl who inspired the hit “More Than Miles.”

She’s no Hollywood starlet or famous singer herself, but a girl next door. In fact, Brantley didn’t have to look far and wide to find the girl of his dreams.

“I met this little girl 10 years ago,” he explained live on the Bobby Bones show. “She’s a hometown girl who teaches school about a mile up from my house.”

The two plan on making it official in June 2015.

Congrats Brantley!

Singer Dustin Lynch had a wild concert last Friday night at the Mullet Festival.

After spraying the audience with champagne, a beer went airborne and chucked him in the face.

Poor guy. We hope your face feels better! Have a swift and speedy recovery.

“Excuse me horse, are you lost?”

Cheshire Police in Northwest England had a very special visitor stop by their headquarters earlier this week. A brown and white horse from a nearby field walked into the station very casually. Maybe they wouldn’t notice?

Though it was a brief stay, this horse managed to leave a memorable impression on the night staff.

Superintendent Peter Crowcroft made a clever statement on the unexpected visit.

“We were somewhat saddled with our unexpected guest, who in the early hours of the morning quickly became the mane event of the night shift,” Crowcroft said in a statement. “We like to ensure a warm welcome to all our guests at HQ, and at neigh point did the horse pose a risk to security and appeared to be a well cared for animal.”

The visit was all captured on camera.
