Today Thomas Rhett has a big announcement about his upcoming tour. He also admits he still gets nervous before every show like wondering if he’ll remember all the words or not.
The mansion Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert owned in Brentwood, TN just sold for 2.4 million dollars. It includes a media room, game room, pool, tennis court & its own golf course.
Looks like not everyone’s a Luke Bryan fan. YouTube personality Uncle Rob posted a video about how to listen to a Luke CD. He put Luke’s CD in a player, filled a bucket with gasoline, dropped the player in then blew it up. Not sure if Luke’s seen the video but I bet he’d think it was funny.
