Kelsea BalleriniFrankie Ballard, and Charlie Daniels are now on board for the T.J. Martell Foundation’s 9th Annual Nashville Honors Gala. Nashville’s Charles Esten will host the benefit for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research. George Strait and Brad Paisley were the first artists who signed up to participate.

Willie Nelson’s January 28 and 29 shows at The Venetian in Las Vegas have been cancelled due to illness. The subsequent dates in February, however, will go on as planned.
