Today's country tidbits...

Keith Urban's 2010 benefit calendar for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital is available, and Keith thanks his fans for doing so much for the hospital over the last seven years. In addition, Keith Urban is a nominee for Tennessean of the Year, as he's recognized for the benefit he put together for the Country Music Hall of fame. Past winners include Dolly Parton and Al Gore, and you can weigh in on who should win. The recipient will be announced on December 27th.

Did you watch the Carrie Underwood Christmas special last night? How bout Dolly Parton and Carrie sitting together and singing? Wow...

Rascal Flatts has announced the last leg of their Unstoppable tour...it'll fire back up on January 15th in Connecticut and they'll pack in 23 shows before March 13th, where the fun stops in Oklahoma City.

Miranda Lambert, her Dad and Blake Shelton are in Kansas, hunting and apparently very very cold. Somebody get Blake some good Carharts for Christmas, would you? He's whining on Twitter. Miranda says she has on 20 layers, which makes it tough to pull her bow back. If she spots the right deer, bet she'll have no problems.

Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland was part of the Kennedy Center Honors concert on Sunday night. She was on hand to help with the tribute to Bruce Springsteen, and sang "Glory Days" and "I'm On Fire." The ceremony was taped and will air on December 29th on CBS.

The 2010 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner was announced yesterday. Loretta Lynn is delighted with the honor, and plans to attend the awards ceremony on January 31st. She's celebrating her 50th year in country music.

On tv, catch Dierks Bentley and Patty Griffin on Lopez Tonight on TBS. They'll sing their Grammy-nominated song, "Beautiful World."

And musical superstar (??) Evan Taubenfeld has a new holiday song called "Merry Swiftmas." Taylor Swift was totally charmed by it, and you might be, too.

Danica Patrick is part of JR Motorsports...she'll race open-wheel and NASCAR events in 2010.
