Even two weeks after Reba McEntire strolled out onto the Opry House stage during a performance of Little Big Town's smash "Pontoon" and invited the band to join the Grand Ole Opry cast, LBT's Karen Fairchild, Jimi Westbrook, Phillip Sweet and Kimberly Schlapman were still pinching themselves. "We've replayed the video of Reba singing 'motorboatin' a thousand times on the bus!" confessed Fairchild.

For their fifth annual We're All for the Hall benefit concert in Nashville on Tuesday, Keith Urban and Vince Gill decided to have a little fun with their fellow artists.
Instead of just having them perform their hits, they asked that each of the country stars singing in the show recount the stories behind their songs. "Fans love to hear the story behind the song, and country music is all about stories," Gill told PEOPLE Country. "I love the theme this year."
However, Carrie Underwood wasn't so sure.

Taylor Swift reached deep into her pockets to help raise money for Nashville flood victims.
The country star, 20, donated $500,000 to flood relief, calling into a star-studded telethon Thursday on a local NBC affiliate station that raised more than $1.7 million.
"It was the craziest thing that I’ve ever seen,” Swift said on the telethon. "I was at my house in Hendersonville, we were staring out the window, thinking it didn't seem like rain. It just seemed like something in a movie. It was really emotional for me because those are the streets I learned to drive on. People's houses are just ruined. It was so heartbreaking to see that in my town, the place that I call home, and the place that I feel most safe. I just send my love to my friends and neighbors who got hit harder than I did."
Swift wasn't the only star to lend their support (and voice) to the event. Vince Gill hosted the telethon, and Keith Urban, Alison Krauss and Darius Rucker performed, worked the phones and pitched in their own donations, too.

The collective "Oh, snap!" you heard Sunday night at the Grammy Awards was Kanye West getting ribbed by none other than ... country nice guy Vince Gill???
Onstage to accept an award from Beatle Ringo Starr, Gill, who was an album of the year nominee along with West, joked, "I just got an award given to me by a Beatle. Have you had that happen yet, Kanye?"
Gill told reporters backstage that it was all in good fun – and that he doesn't think he's started a new rivalry.
"No, he was laughing," Gill said. "I'm a smartass. You know, I can't help it. He seemed to think that he and Amy [Winehouse] were the only ones worthy of the album of the year tonight. And I was just having some fun. He laughed, so it was all in good spirit."
