After more than three decades together, iconic rock ‘n roll band MÖTLEY CRÜE announced today their Final Tour and the band’s ultimate retirement. The announcement was solidified when the band signed a formal Cessation Of Touring Agreement, effective at the end of 2015, in front of global media in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

In conjunction with the tour, Big Machine Records, home to country superstars such as Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts has teamed up in a joint venture with MÖTLEY RECORDS and ELEVEN SEVEN MUSIC for the summer 2014 release of a Country Music Tribute To MÖTLEY CRÜE. Big Machine Label Group president and CEO, Scott Borchetta, is among the legion of Country Music fans who love MÖTLEY CRÜE. The country tribute album will show off the band’s quality songwriting with these fresh takes on their classic hit songs. Among the artists already confirmed to be featured on the country tribute album are LeAnn Rimes, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, Eli Young Band and Cassadee Pope. More artists will be unveiled as the album nears a release date this summer. Borchetta says of the collaboration, "I have been a not-so-secret Crue fan from the beginning. When manager Chris Nilsson called with the idea for a tribute album on Big Machine Records it was an immediate 'yes' from me! Our album will highlight just how great the Motley Crue song catalog is. At the end of the day, that's what will stand the test of time."

The drama continues as Juliette tries to overcome the fact that thousands of fans are burning her albums. However, many venues are pulling out of her tour, for threat or for political reasons. Juliette is furious, but becomes increasingly deflated as the episode goes on, and considers that she might lose her entire career. Avery steps in to save the day (after she’s downed a bottle of vodka and passed out), and decides to remind her what she loved about her life in the first place, but dressing her up in disguise and taking her down to the street to perform as someone else. A crowd gathers, and she loves it, but Juliette still decides to go home and mull over everything instead of spend further time with THE GUY WHO IS DOING EVERYTHING FOR HER. Jeez, this girl needs glasses. Meanwhile Jeff turns up at Juliette’s house to have a go at her and threaten her, right up in her face! He demands that she apologizes to the public, even though she doesn’t want to lie. She finally goes to church and makes some peace, and then arrives at Avery’s house to write a song, having “made her decision”.
