Six days a week, Gary and Bristol get up before the sun shines to bring you the latest from Nashville, New York City and Hollywood with Entertainment this Morning!
It’s the first day of spring and not only are warmer temperatures and pollen making their return, so is Dancing with the Stars. Season 24 kicks off tonight with bull rider, Bonner Bolton, Charo, Mr. T, Nancy Kerrigan, Nick Viall, Simone Biles and more!
Last week we reported that experts at Fandango projected that Beauty and the Beast would debut with anywhere from $120-$140 million at the box office domestically over the weekend. It turns out those estimates were really low! Even though it was the first weekend for March Madness, Beauty and the Beast had a MONSTER weekend, raking in $170 million in the U.S. and $350 million worldwide, making it the biggest opening for a PG movie ever.
Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row restaurant in Gilbert, Arizona is in hot water. They turned away a patron, a military veteran, because of his neck tattoos. It turns out one of the tats was a ’22,’ the number of veterans who take their lives on daily basis in our country. According to their apology on social media, they’re working ‘to educate their staff on the difference between gang and non-gang related tattoos.’ The restaurant has reached out to the man and his family to make amends and say they have veteran and military appreciation events in the works.
Finally, we lost another legend over the weekend. Chuck Berry, best known for his song Johnny B. Goode, passed away Saturday at 90-years-old. Something cool that I came across this morning is that Johnny B. Goode remains on an intergalactic tour, because it was one of the songs included on Voyager I and II and sent into space back in 1977.
