Erin breaks down the top country news stories in her Deep Dish on Country!

1. Yes, you read the headline right, country music veteran, Willie Nelson, and rapper Snoop Dogg will release a new song together in a couple of weeks!

  • When asked about the collaboration in a recent interview with Ebro Darden on Beats 1, Snoop said, "That’s my big brother, Willie Nelson. The reason we’re gonna make this record is because black and white matters right now. The love we have for each other.”
  • This will not be the two artist's first collaboration together. Back in 2009, they released the song 'My Medicine,' which you can assume is about a recreational hobby the two have in common. 

2. Live Nation created the 'Live from the Drive-In Concert Series' and both Jon Pardi and Brad Paisley will be playing outdoor drive-in concerts at the Ruoff Music Center parking lot in Indianapolis.

  • Each car will receive their own 'tailgate zone' which is about the size of a 2 car garage and concert-goers can bring their own chairs, food, and drinks to enjoy. All cars will be spaced out according to social distance rules and one ticket per vehicle is required.
  • Jon Pard will be playing on Saturday, July 11th. Click HERE for tickets. 
  • Brad Paisley will be performing the day after, Sunday, July 12th in the same parking lot and you can click HERE for tickets.
