The Band Perry concert cancelled after security threat.

Posted on: November 18th, 2016 by Candy

This lovingly borrowed from TMZ.com

 

The Band Perry pulled the plug on a performance Sunday night in Delaware after two men made threats against the venue … and they’re still on the loose.

The incident went down at 3 PM  … when two men walked into the Americana Bayside Welcome Center and made “alarming statements” to an employee at the front desk.  A source familiar to the situation tells TMZ they were threats of violence.

We’re told the Band Perry was there, preparing for the show … and, along with cops and security, made the decision to postpone the concert. The announcement was made 15 minutes before the concert was scheduled to start.

The band released a statement saying, “While we are sad we don’t get to see you tonight, we love you and consider your wellbeing and security our top priority.”

The concert has been rescheduled for August 17th.

Posted on: November 15th, 2016 by brent

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

“Daddy’s Hands” singer Holly Dunn has passed at age 59 after battling a rare form of cancer.

A close family friend told WSMV-TV that Holly passed away at a hospice facility in Albuquerque, NM, surrounded by friends and family members.

She revealed she was fighting ovarian cancer back in March.

Holly was a major contributor to Country Music in the 1980s with hits like “Daddy’s Hands” and “You Really Had Me Going.” However, she tired of the music business and went on to pursue a career as a painter.
