“Country superstar Reba McEntire is letting the LGBT community know she’s got your back! In a video that played during the Nashville Concert for Love and Acceptance, McEntire said how proud she is of openly gay country singer Ty Herndon and others “who are standing up today to say that we are all God’s children.” She went on to say, “Just know that I’ve got your back.” You can watch the video below:
GLAAD and Grammy-nominated country artist Ty Herndon joined forces on Friday to host the first ever Concert for Love and Acceptance in Nashville. The event featured performances from Herndon, as well as Billy Gilman, Crystal Gayle, Chris Carmack (ABC’s Nashville), Deborah Allen, Tiffany, Desmond Child, Shelly Fairchild, Jamie O’Neal, Melinda Doolittle, Antigone Rising, Meghan Linsey, Jennifer Knapp, Levi Hummon and Anthony De La Torre.

“This morning in Nashville Chris Carmack and songwriter/producer Desmond Child joined GLAAD and the Tennessee Equality Project to speak out against two other similarly discriminatory measures.
If signed into law, Tennessee House Bill 1840 would allow the state’s mental health professionals to refuse treatment to LGBT patients, and the Tennessee Senate Education Committee’s HB 2414 would require local transgender students to use the bathroom that corresponds to their designated sex at birth, not how they chose to identify. Miley Cyrus, Emmylou Harris, Chely Wright and Ty Herndon, along with Viacom and CMT, have already spoken out against the bills, and now GLAAD is urging the rest of Nashville and the country music industry to follow suit.
“I personally am terrified that these proposals even exist in our state,” said Carmack, who plays an openly gay country singer on ABC’s Nashville and released his Pieces of You EP last year. “This kind of unnecessary discrimination has no place in this city or the state of Tennessee. If these bills get passed, it would have a devastating impact on the lives of so many people… and this represents an enormous step backwards in the progress that has been made towards civil liberties for every citizen.”
“The two bills on the table are morally and spiritually corrupt to the core,” said Songwriter Hall of Fame member Child, who lives in Nashville with his husband and two children. He urged the country music community to speak out actively against these bills. “If passed, they will disgrace our community and make us laughing stocks of the world… so why now? Because it’s payback for the Supreme Court passing marriage equality and making it the law of the land.”
Ellis and other LBGT leaders will spend this week in Nashville meeting with executives and imploring them to join the fight against these bills, and Carmack urged his fellow celebrities and music industry figureheads to actively speak out (though he would not comment as to whether or not he anticipated that Nashville would withdraw from filming locally should HB 1840 and HB 2414 be actualized).
“I know from the work I do playing an out gay country star on television that words matter,” Cormack said. “Images matter, and not just the ones we hear on our screens or hear on our radios. So it’s important for those who can make a difference to stand up and let their words be heard, let their actions be seen.”
Well, if you need me on August 26th, I’ll be busy seeing this movie.
Two: The Story Of Roman & Nyro documents the 12-year journey of legendary songwriter Desmond Child and his lifelong partner Curtis Shaw, and the extraordinary way they met and connected with Angela Whittaker, the woman who would carry their twin sons, Roman and Nyro, into the world. From preconception through the boys’ first 10 years, Two is the personal and powerful story of these unique individuals whose lives become inextricably woven together in magical and unexpected ways. Two is testament to the universal power and ultimate triumph of love—that it is love that makes a family, affirming modern families may be modern in their making, but timelessly human at their core.

Well,you all know I can't stand haters. But this one is pure jealousy.
I don’t even know where to start. Well,this one is old but it still upsets me. So first of all,when was the last time you saw Jon in leather pants ? 49 may seem old for you now,but someday you’ll be 49 too and you’ll think you’re in the flower of youth. His wife is good looking. He speaks clearly,but maybe the problem is in your f*cking ears. Clear them,it might help. His restaurant is a wonderful idea for people who can’t afford fancy restaurants and lobsters and stuff. His voice is still great,of course it doesn’t sound the same like in the 80s but it’s obviously good cause people seem too love it. He also sounds great live. If their songs suck,why the hell is every f*cking song in top 5 on every chart ? And what bothers me the most - DID YOU EVER GOOGLE ANY OF THEIR ALBUMS ?!? OBVIOUSLY YOU DIDN’T CAUSE YOU DON’T SEEM TO NOTICE THAT 90% OF SONGS ARE WRITTEN BY JON BON JOVI/RICHIE SAMBORA/DESMOND CHILD !!!!!
Dude,here’s a quarter and buy yourself a decent life. You don’t have the right to judge people who you have never met and nevel will.
P.S. Sorry for the bad quality,back in the time I didn’t know how to use Print Screen option haha.
