MUSIC NEWS: FRIDAY, AUGUST 25, 2017 SHANIA TWAIN - EXPLAINS BRAD PITT The reason Shania Twain name-check Brad Pitt in her song ``That Don't Impress Me Much'' is because he was in the news at the time she wrote the song. The Canadian star tells Billboard magazine Playgirl had published nude photos of Pitt, and she remembers thinking, ``I don't know what all the fuss is about.'' She was writing her ``Come On Over'' album at the time, so he was on her mind. She says she wasn't picking on Pitt, but it was ``the association in that moment.'' --- HOUSTON CONCERTS - HURRICANE HARVEY Lady Antebellum's concert in Houston has been called off for Sunday in anticipation of Hurricane Harvey.

MUSIC NEWS: TUESDAY, AUGUST 22, 2017 OBIT- SONNY BURGESS Sonny Burgess never had the hits that his label mates at Sun Records had, but his stage show blew many of them out of the water. Bands were reluctant to follow Burgess onstage in the 1950s because his performances were so wild. Burgess was considered one of the pioneers of rockabilly and was performing well into his 80s. He was inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in 2002. Burgess died Friday in Little Rock, Arkansas, at the age of 88. --- CAGE THE ELEPHANT - ``UNPEELED'' Cage The Elephant tried not to think about the fact that they were recording themselves while performing live for their ``Unpeeled'' album. Guitarist Brad Shultz says that can stifle creativity. He says the challenge was to treat it as if they were making a studio record, just with an audience. Shultz says it was…

MUSIC NEWS: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 16, 2017 ELVIS - 40TH ANNIVERSARY For many fans of Elvis Presley, today is a day to remind themselves that it's been 40 years since the music icon died. This will also be the first year that people will have to pay for the right to take part in a procession past Presley's grave. The trek used to be free, But now, Graceland is charging 28 dollars and 75 cents for the privilege and that isn't sitting well with some Presley fans. Graceland, for its part, says it decided to add the paid wristband to update security measures at the tourist attraction. --- TAYLOR SWIFT - TRIAL The former radio host who lost that groping lawsuit to Taylor Swift says he wanted to see the matter through even if the final decision went against him.
