Jon Pardi is engaged!
Jon and his girlfriend, Summer, have been dating for two years, ET has exclusively learned.
Jon popped the question last night in Nashville. He was on the second night of his back to back shows at the Ryman Auditorium as part of his headlining Heartache Medication Tour.
Jon told the crowd that the Ryman was one of the first places he and Summer went on a date. He then got down on one knee, and of course she said yes!
Garth Brooks will be the next recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, the youngest recipient ever!
He will receive the honor at an all-star tribute concert in Washington, D.C., in March 2020. The concert will air on PBS stations nationwide in the spring, and a broadcast date will be confirmed at a later time.
The Gershwin Prize “recognizes a living musical artist’s lifetime achievement in promoting the genre of song as a vehicle of entertainment, information, inspiration and cultural understanding.”
Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden said, “Garth Brooks’ appeal as a performer, songwriter and humanitarian has brought many new fans into the world of country music. During his career, Brooks has set countless records, earned numerous awards and elevated country music into a national anthem of the American people.”
Garth said, “An award is only as good as the names on it. First off, for any musician, the name Gershwin says it all. Add to Ira’s and George’s names the names of the past recipients, and you have an award of the highest honor. I am truly humbled.”
