Nashville notes

Brad Paisley headlined three sold-out shows in London, Dublin and Glasgow this weekend as part of Europe’s C2C Festival. Former tourmate Chris Young joined him on stage each night to perform “Still a Guy.”

Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels will release his autobiography, Never Look at the Empty Seats, on October 24.

Dolly Parton’s longtime friend and business partner, Don Warden, died Sunday in Nashville at the age of 87. The two originally met when they both worked for Porter Wagoner, for whom Warden played the steel guitar. When Porter and Dolly parted ways, Warden followed the hot new female vocalist, serving as her manager. The man Dolly called “Mr. Everything” will be memorialized at a funeral Thursday at Christ Church Nashville.

Kelsea Ballerini's main squeeze Morgan Evans wants to "Kiss Somebody"Warner Nashville/Robby KleinSo far, we’ve gotten to know Australian Morgan Evans mainly as Kelsea Ballerini’s fiancé, and through his mega-mashup covers of established hitmakers. But Friday, we’ll get our first taste of his own music, as Morgan releases his first single for Warner Nashville, titled “Kiss Somebody.”

On his socials, Morgan teases a special “prelude” video that’s coming as well. Inspired by the song’s lyric “sometimes you’ve got to kiss somebody in the back of a cab,” the new clip finds Morgan performing the tune in a vintage taxi, as he rides around Music City on a hot summer night.

As for the person Morgan happens to be kissing in real life, Kelsea has teased that the two definitely plan to make their union official before 2017 comes to a close.
