Kenny thinks Brantley can hold his own on this superstar concert bill. "When I looked around, for those stadium shows that Brantley’s part of, he’s the man for the job," Kenny says.  "He knows how to reach the crowd, how to make them rock -- and he’s not afraid to push the rest of us.”

Kenny will launch The Big Revival Tour March 26 in Nashville. Tour dates will be announced soon.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police say John Carter Cash stripped down to his underwear in the Deer Lake, Newfoundland, airport and was drunk, according to CBC News.

Cash, who was in Newfoundland for a hunting trip, missed his flight. It was anticipated he would be released when sober.

Cash is not expected to face charges, since he was cooperative with police and security, and has no previous criminal record.

Cash is the only child Johnny Cash had with wife June Carter.
