Update: Country Music Television crews arrive in North Platte

Country Music Television production crews and Katie Cook are in North Platte filming an episode of CMT's Hot 20 Countdown this weekend.

Ruth McCourt, an 81-year-old woman from West Virgina, passed away Thursday night, after battling cancer for more than 30 years. She was set to meet country superstar Alan Jackson prior to his show at the Nebraskaland Days concert as one of her final wishes.

On Friday, Governor Pete Ricketts announced an agency-wide review of the Nebraska State Patrol that will be led by the Governor’s Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) Jason Jackson.

Thousands of people will pack the Wild West Arena Friday and Saturday nights to listen to four of the biggest names in country music.
