Producer David Malloy, who’s worked with Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Reba McEntire and others, says a law enforcement officer saved his life during the Nashville bombing on Christmas morning. WKRN reports that Malloy lives on Second Ave where the explosion took place and was walking his dog on the street nearby when an officer approached him and told him to evacuate, just before the blast.  

Bluegrass star Ricky Skaggs has released a statement honoring IBMA Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame member Tony Rice, who passed away on Christmas Day.
