The 2006 International Bluegrass Music Association's Entertainer of the Year is an innovative group of six musicians who deliver an electrifying blend of bluegrass and country music. Dolly Parton called their debut CD "one of the best albums I've listened to."
"Beehive", the '60s Musical is a hit Broadway revue with eight wailing women, one hot band, 43 wigs and 25 cans of hairspray on Nov. 8. Meet the Supremes, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin and others as they take a journey through the era of love and rock and roll.
