Country Music Hall of Famer Bonnie Brown Ring passed away Saturday at the age of 77 in Little Rock, Arkansas’s Baptist Hospital, after complications from lung cancer. The Browns were inducted into the Hall last year, shortly after the death of brother Jim Ed Brown. Their signature song, “The Three Bells,” spent ten weeks atop the country charts and was a number-one pop hit as well.

Steven Tyler’s tune “Hold On (Won’t Let Go)” is the new theme for the Professional Bull Riders, both at events and on CBS. The song is from the Aerosmith frontman’s solo album, We’re All Somebody from Somewhere.

Jimmy Wayne has sold more than 100,000 copies of his best-selling memoir, Walk to Beautiful.
