CMT Insider was on hand for Keith Urban and Toby Keith in Philadelphia, and we'll have a complete wrap-up of the event, including a look at Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at the concert in Rome. New group the Greencards are creating quite a buzz while on the road opening for musical icons Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. We'll catch up with the trio at a recent show at Nashville's Greer Stadium and find out about their unique sound. Speaking of Nelson, the singer-songwriter was busy this past holiday weekend with the opening of a new bio diesel gas station and his annual Fourth of July picnic in his homestate of Texas. We were on hand for both events, and we'll talk with the superstar. Country rebel Hank Williams Jr. has been the face and music behind the successful Monday Night Football opening for years.

CMT Insider will go behind the scenes of the taping and talk with the star about a tradition coming to an end.
