Gossip: Keith Urban was at the top of Loretta Lynn's wish list for birthday party performers
Keith Urban jumped at the chance to perform at Loretta Lynn's birthday tribute concert in Nashville, Tennessee in April (19) after learning she had specifically asked for him to be on the bill.
Loretta has made it clear there was only one guy she wanted to see on the bill.
In a press release announcing the show, Lynn writes: "I am so excited to celebrate my 87th birthday with all my friends. This is the first time I've ever had a birthday party! My birthday wish has come true.
"The only other wish I have is that Keith Urban jumps out of my birthday cake!"
The Blue Isn't Your Color singer was quick to sign up, replying: "Your wish is always my command Miss Loretta!!!!" underneath a picture of himself embracing the icon.
The tribute concert will also feature performances by country superstars George Strait and Alan Jackson, and Jack White, who produced the Coal Miner’s Daughter singer's 2004 comeback album Van Lear Rose.
Lynn, who is not yet billed to perform, will celebrate her 87th birthday on 14 April, but she will get the party started on 1 April with the All-Star Birthday Celebration Concert.

Billboard Country Airplay (Chart issue week of January 12, 2019)

Dan + Shay, the duo of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, continue their domination of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and the airplay-, streamingand sales-fueled Hot Country Songs survey (dated Jan. 12) with “Speechless” (Warner Bros./WAR).

The love song inspired by the duo’s wives, which Smyers and Mooney cowrote with Jordan Reynolds and Laura Veltz, led Country Airplay for a fourth week. It increases by 15 percent to 39.4 million audience impressions in the week ending Jan. 6, according to Nielsen Music. (All but two songs gain on the chart, reflecting the first full tracking week after holiday music returned to hibernation.)

“It’s very fitting to start the new year with ‘Speechless’ still at No.1,” says Warner Music Nashville senior vp promotion and streaming Kristen Williams. “The guys have worked immensely hard to get to this point, and the entire team has been tireless in its efforts to execute their vision. Plus, thanks to country radio for its unending support. It’s going to be an exciting year.”
“Speechless” hit No. 1 for the first time on the Dec.22, 2018-dated Country Airplay list.
The track became the first four-week leader since Luke Combs’ “She Got the Best of Me,” which led for four frames beginning on the chart dated Oct. 27, 2018.
As far as duos go, Dan + Shay is the first to stretch a stay atop Country Airplay to four weeks since 2014, when Florida Georgia Line’s “Stay” ruled for four frames that January. The pair with the longest-running No.1 on Country Airplay is Brooks & Dunn, whose 2001 hit “Ain’t Nothing ’Bout You” held at the apex for six weeks.
Among all acts, the longest reign atop Country Airplay, which launched on Jan. 20, 1990, is eight weeks. Two songs share the honor: Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett’s “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” (2003) and Lonestar’s “Amazed” (1999).
As Dan + Shay have now topped both Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay for four weeks running, the act is the first to simultaneously spend that much time atop those tallies since Thomas Rhett, who led the lists for a record six consecutive weeks in January and February 2016 with “Die a Happy Man.”

Luke Combs’She Got the Best of Me” (River House/Columbia Nashville) has now ranked in the Country Airplay top five for 15 weeks as it dipped 4-5 with 34 million audience impressions, up 17 percent. “Best” now stands alone in second place for the longest run in the top five and is a week from tying the record, held by Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road”: 16 weeks, in 2017.

Country Airplay
*** No.1 (4 weeks) *** “Speechless” Dan + Shay 39.416 million audience (+5.197 million) / 7,442 radio plays (+916)
** Most Increased Audience ** No.2 “Good Girl” Dustin Lynch +7.926 million audience
** Most Added ** No.19 “Beautiful Crazy” Luke Combs (47 ADDS)
