Alabama Cancels Shows As Randy Owen Suffers Severe Vertigo And Migraines

Alabama have announced that their weekend shows in Canada have been canceled as the band's lead singer Randy Owen suffers from severe vertigo and migraines.

A concert in TD Place Stadium on Friday and another at the Big Sky Music Festival in Oro-Medonte on Saturday were canceled, according to the shows' promoters.

"The group Alabama is having to cancel both concerts this weekend on their current 50th anniversary tour in Canada: July 19 at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, ON and also July 20, Big Sky Music Festival in Oro-Medonte, ON," TD Place said in a notice published on their website.

TD Place added, "Co-founder and lead vocalist Randy Owen is suffering from severe vertigo and migraines. Randy is currently under doctor's care and being treated."

"We hope to return to both Ottawa and Oro soon, and apologize to all of the fans for not being able to perform," the legendary country band said in a statement.

Marshmello, Kane Brown Drop 'One Thing Right' Video

Marshmello and Kane Brown have dropped a video for "One Thing Right," a collaboration they released about a month ago.

The song, which was co-written by Brown, peaked at No. 57 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this month.

The video begins with Marshmello getting into a car driven by Brown after stepping out of what looks like a jail. They are shown driving along a dusty old backroad before reaching a girl's house.

The girl, wanting to get to the EDM artist, is seen arguing with a police officer. The artists then drive away and the video ends with police chasing their car.

Marshmello and Brown are scheduled to perform "One Thing Right" on stage for the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series on August 30.

Dolly Parton Reacts To Lil Nas X's Remix Request

Up-and-coming country rapper Lil Nas X has continued to generate quite the buzz as his single, "Old Town Road," featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, continues to reign atop the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for the 15th consecutive week.

Meanwhile, the rapper shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, he has been taking advantage of the copious amounts of attention being paid to the song to reach out to even more artists across the industry to suggest collaborations and even more remixes.

"y'all think i can get dolly parton and megan thee stallion on a old town remix," Lil Nas X tweeted.

Dolly Parton responded by tweeting an image of a bright-pink horse riding alongside Nas' black and Cyrus' brown beasts along with the caption of a unicorn emoji.

Lil Nas X recently released a remix of the song featuring the Cyrus, "yodeling kid" Mason Ramsey and Young Thug, for which he has released a meme-filled music video as well.
