Big shots in New York City got a little bit country with a chorus of "Home on the Range" during the Nature Conservancy's fundraiser in Central Park: (from left) Dan Rather, Metropolitan opera soprano Sylvia McNair, Diane Sawyer, Carly Simon, Peter Jennings and Tom Brokaw piped up publicly with some encouraging words from the 1,300 guests.

Wings, NBC's offbeat ensemble of regulars in a small Nantucket airport, has taken flight. The series' stars—including Steven Weber (left), Crystal Bernard and Tim Daly—celebrated its TV milestone, 100 episodes, at a beach party in Santa Monica.

Billy Ray Cyrus, the man who would be country's king, lifted daughter Destiny Hope, 2, onstage for the "Amazing Grace" finale at the tribute concert to Elvis Presley in Memphis.

Christie Brinkley went wild hosting a rodeo benefit for the Southern Utes in Telluride, Colo., and so did her own tribe: brother Greg (left), nephew Ian, 4, daughter Alexa, 8, and fiancé Ricky Taubman, a real estate developer. Later, garbed in a festive Native American headdress, the supermodel was honored with a traditional ceremony.

Fresh from her white-water triumph in The River Wild, action hero Meryl Streep landed on a porch swing in Madison County, Iowa, where Clint Eastwood is now directing The Bridges of Madison County, due next year. Streep plays Francesca, the lonely farmwife who finally meets her true love, a rugged photographer played by Eastwood, in the romance based on the best-selling novel.

Manhattanites Sarah Jessica Parker, currently starring in Ed Wood, and steady beau Matthew Broderick beat a well-traveled path to L.A., this time for the premiere of The Road to Wellville. Broderick gets poked and prodded by the corn-flakes-and-health-crazed fanatic Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (played by Anthony Hopkins) in the turn-of-the-century farce, which opens nationwide on Oct. 28.
