Lee Brice asked for his fans help to find his dogs…
Kip Moore is helping out songwriters…

Lee Brice’s two dogs went missing from his farm near Nashville yesterday and he was asking his fans for help in finding them.
He turned to social media yesterday to report that his dogs, Knox and Jax, somehow got away and then he posted pics of the cute pooches to help in the search. I am happy to report that late last evening, Lee posted his gratitude that his furry friends were back home and resting.

Kip Moore is committed to helping out songwriters who may be struggling financially so they can continue to write songs. 
He helps his co-writers whose songs don't become singles by giving them a bonus out of his own pocket at the end of the year -- and he hopes other artists will do the same. He says, "I know that all artists can't do this, but my hope is that the big guns out there doing well on the road, that we can help kick back to the songwriters that are struggling in town." 

With so much music streaming, songwriters get very little compensation unless the song is a radio hit.
