Miranda Lambert’s album, ‘The Marfa Tapes’ is a project she just did with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall. It was recorded in Marfa, TX and Miranda says it’s so raw you can hear the wind blowing and cows mooing. The record will be out May 7.

Luke Bryan’s wife Caroline went through her gym bag yesterday and wrote, “I’m seriously concerned about myself....I found Oreos, a remote control rat and an air horn!”

Dolly says the only way she’d ever go without makeup is if there was an emergency and she had to get her husband to the hospital. She does sometimes go out without a wig tho and onetime tried to go incognito wearing a black wig but her voice gave her away.

Reba will star in and produce two movies for Lifetime. ‘Christmas In Tune’ will air this year and the second one is not a holiday movie and will be out in 2022.

Miranda Lambert’s the first female country star with a bar on Nashville's Lower Broadway. Her Casa Rosa will be near all the other country bars, including Blake's Ole Red. It’s currently being renovated and is huge but we don’t yet know when it will be open.

The 16-year-old toothless Chihuahua Dan from Dan + Shay fostered a week ago has now been adopted; by he and his wife. Dan says the dog’s health is failing so they adopted her.

Dolly just got the coronavirus vaccine & CMA Fest in Nashville has been canceled

Dolly just got the coronavirus vaccine. She got the shot at Vanderbilt University and even tho she’s been eligible for a while know she didn't want it to seem like she was being favored because she donated a million dollars to Vanderbilt last year.

This year's CMA Fest in Nashville has been canceled for the second year in a row due to Covid. They’ve already started planning for next summer and the new CMA dates are June 9-12.

Niko Moon’s ‘Good Time’ is very close to being a #1 hit. He taught himself how to play guitar in high school by watching You Tube videos. Niko’s at-home studio is the laundry room which he converted into a vocal booth.

luke combs is 31 today & Maren Morris is on The Late Late Show with James Corden

On The Voice last night, Blake Shelton failed to recognize a contestant, his ex-bandmate, Pete. Blake said it was because he hadn’t seen him in 20-years and his hair had changed. Because of their history together, even tho John Legend wanted Pete, he choose Blake as his coach.

Morgan Wallen’s double album, ‘Dangerous’ is #1 on the all-genre Billboard chart for the seventh week in a row. That makes it the only country album to spend its first seven weeks at #1 in the 64-year history of the chart.

Maren Morris is on The Late Late Show with James Corden tonight. I also hear Maren and her husband’s favorite thing to do with their 1-year-old son Hayes is watch kid shows like Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, Sesame Street and Peppa Pig.

Garth and Trisha are among the musicians thanking music educators for keeping the music playing during these challenging times.

Finally – happy 31st birthday today to Luke Combs.

Keith Urban's kids make a rare public appearance & The Voice premieres tonight

On last night’s Golden Globes, Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman and their daughters Sunday and Faith appeared virtually. It’s the first time we’ve had a clear look at the girl’s faces. I also found out more about their time at the Sydney opera a few weeks ago. They broke protocol to stand at the end of the performance because they thought it was so great. That’s when the guy behind Nicole swatted her with his program. Keith said he wanted to whack the guy but instead showed great restraint.

The ACM nominees have Maren Morris and Chris Stapleton each getting six nods. Miranda Lambert has five and Ashley McBryde and Thomas Rhett have four. ACM snubs include Carrie Underwood, no Luke Combs in Single, Song or Album of the Year and Keith Urban was not in either Entertainer or Male Artist of the Year.

Finally – The Voice premieres tonight on NBC and Blake Shelton’s back as a judge. He only got the job years ago because Reba turned it down. She said no because she didn’t think she’d be able to tell somebody they’re terrible. In a few weeks Dan + Shay will be on as Blake’s Battle Advisors.

Tenille Townes performs tonight & George Strait just listed his mansion

Dan from Dan and Shay has four rescue dogs and just added a 16-year-old emaciated and toothless Chihuahua. She was terrified at the shelter and Dan couldn’t let this tiny dog live out the rest of her life there.

George Strait just listed his San Antonio mansion for $7.5 million. It’s almost 8,000 sq ft, has a walk-in safe and comes with a golf course membership. Before you get to his home, there are three gates (and one has a guard). George is selling because he and his wife want more privacy.

Tim McGraw has one thing he won’t do any more; rides. When he and Faith were in Paris, Tim said he froze with fear on the Ferris wheel and couldn’t move.

Finally – Tenille Townes performs tonight to help end childhood homelessness. It’s at 6:30 CT at haloworldwide.com. Loretta Lynn: My Story in My Words documentary premieres on PBS Saturday night.

Garth says, “we’ll walk out the other side of this thing together.”

Brett Eldredge struggles with anxiety and depression and said it took him a long time to understand it wasn’t shameful to go to therapy and get help. Brett says, “I’m glad for the brutal times I’ve gone through. It’s taught me resilience and to be a better creator, friend and person.”

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman's Australian home is their sanctuary. It’s in New South Wales on 111 acres with cows and alpacas. They both love the simplicity and peace their property brings.

how Keith Urban gets rid of concert jitters & how Luke Combs wife knew he was the one

One way Keith Urban gets rid of concert jitters is a 1985 workout cassette from Hulk Hogan. They crank it backstage and he and the band do a pre-show workout with Hulk. Keith says it’s absurd in all the right ways. I also hear the strangest thing Keith was ever asked to sign was a fans nose. He thought that was just too weird and said no.

Jason Aldean’s obsessed with buying things off infomercials. He owns a Pedi Paw for his dogs’ nails, a Magic Bullet blender and a Slim Clip money clip he uses instead of a wallet.

Luke Combs met his wife Nicole at a songwriter festival in Florida. She knew right away she could be herself with him and said, “we could be weird in front of each other and that’s when I knew Luke was a keeper.’” Nicole says quarantine’s been a blessing because as newlyweds they’ve been able to spend basically every day together.

Finally - Jake Owen often brings his Jeep on tour so he can do things like go fishing. Other road must haves for Jake are vintage movies and gummy bears.

On Sunday Kane Brown tweeted, “just wanted to say thanks to the pastor from Alabama who paid for our meal this morning and didn’t even say hello.”

Tim McGraw and actor Garrett Hedlund met 17 years ago when they filmed ‘Friday Night Lights’ playing father and son. Garrett’s girlfriend actress Emma Roberts just had their son Rhodes Robert and Tim’s his godfather. Emma’s the niece of actress Julia Roberts.

Finally - Blake Shelton’s video for ‘Minimum Wage’ was directed by Gwen Stefani’s brother while they were all quarantined at Blake’s Oklahoma ranch. They had Covid protocols in place to shoot and he says Gwen’s brother captured exactly what he wanted.

you have to try Niko Moon's cobbler & Carly Pearce’s new EP is out today

Dolly Parton’s asking the Tennessee lawmakers to remove a bill to have a statue in her honor at the Tennessee Capitol. Dolly says there's too much going on in the world to put her on a pedestal right now, but several years from now would be OK.

Jason Aldean’s a master with an iron. Growing up he wanted everything ironed and his mom got tired of always doing it so she taught him how.

Newcomer Niko Moon's 'Good Time' EP has just gone platinum! Niko and his wife were recently on Facebook making one of his favorite things; 7-Up Peach Cobbler. Niko says it’s one of the best peach cobblers ever and it only has 3 ingredients; a boxed cake mix, peach pie filling and 7-Up.

Finally - Carly Pearce’s seven-song EP, ‘29’ is out today, documenting her 29th year of life. Carly won’t speak publicly about her divorce from Michael Ray but she isn’t afraid to sing about it and says, “I think there’s something for everyone on this record.”

Garth said, “Luke’s letting everybody else do the talking for him. He realizes being a star is not up to him but the people.” Yesterday Luke apologized for photos that resurfaced showing him with a Confederate flag saying, "there is no excuse for those images."

Carrie Underwood’s 5-year-old son Isaiah is taking horseback riding lessons. The lesson was on a horse his parents own. They’re calling him a soon to be cowboy.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have just listed their 20-acre private island in the Bahamas for $35 million. They bought it in 2003, but didn’t move in till 2012. The property’s a collection of eight pavilions including two yurts and a 6,500 sq ft mansion, all connected by covered verandas and passageways. As for the secret to their happy marriage Faith says it’s little things like breakfast together or a cup of coffee without being interrupted.

We’re hearing Blake Shelton had to make a drastic change to his Oklahoma ranch for Gwen Stefani’s hair. He only had well water so she had Blake add soft water into the system to keep her hair from breaking off.

Brett Eldredge says one of the silliest things he’s ever done was a few years ago at Walmart. It was 1 AM and he was playing musical chairs with a child’s pink Barbie couch. Brett says, “you're never too old to get weird at Walmart.’

Finally - Florida Georgia Line perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight.

Tim McGraw gets fancy for Valentine's Day & Keith Urban's wife gets swatted

For Valentine's Day Tim McGraw made something his wife Faith Hill requested. His beef stew and Cornbread. To make it special to use filet mignon for her stew writing, "a man's got to do what a man's got to do!"

Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman we're at the Sydney Opera house last week. When it was almost over, everyone stood and clapped. A guy sitting behind Keith and Nick got annoyed and told them to sit down. They refused, so he swatted the Nicole with his program. Security was called so we're police but no further action was taken.

Chris Young was on tour with Cassadee Pope when they found themselves in the middle of a winter storm in Pennsylvania. The interstate was shut down due to snow so they got stuck at a truck stop. Chris said the restaurant started running out of food so the menu only had a few things. On day 3 all they had left was toast and eggs.

Finally - Blake Shelton hasn't even started losing weight for his wedding because they haven't set a date yet. He says, "l'm not going to lose weight for no good reason."

Garth and Trisha have to quarantine & don't miss NBC’s Grand Ole Opry special sunday

Someone on Garth and Trisha’s team has Covid so they’re canceling everything and quarantining for two weeks. I’m guessing they’re both still hosting the Ellen Show today as that’s taped at least a day ahead, but I’m not sure.

This situation is ugly right now, but I'll keep searching to become the example instead of being made one.”

Eric Church’s only goal during the pandemic was to keep all of his employees paid. Eric has been able to do that, paying full salaries for his band and crew and says he’s proud of that.

Florida Georgia Line's fifth album, ‘Life Rolls On’ is out Friday. It was recorded in the Bahamas. As for wearing a mask, Tyler doesn’t mind at all. He says a mask means he can walk thru Target and not get recognized.

Dan + Shay will be Blake Shelton’s Battle Advisors on The Voice this season. Years ago they opened for him and said Blake treated them and the people around him like royalty. The guys say because of that, they do the same for their tour openers.

Ingrid Andress is on TV tonight & Trisha Yearwood started Matthew McConaughey's career

I can’t believe Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s place in Leiper’s Fork, TN has been for sale since 2013. It includes a 22,000 sq ft mansion with ten bathrooms, a log home built in the 1800s, two guest houses, a 12 stall horse stable and a caretaker residence. One home used to be owned by Hank Williams. Tim and Faith have since moved into a 6,000 sq-ft house and they got one more bathroom in the move; they now have 11.

As for his new wife, newlywed Jon Pardi says, “I just want to make her happy but I still do dumb things cause I’m a guy.”

I was watching Trisha Yearwood’s video for ‘Walkaway Joe,’ the other day. It’s from 1992 and starred a then unknown Matthew McConaughey. He plays the teen love interest and I hear it was Matthew’s first ever acting gig. It’s really hard to tell it’s even him.

Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan did an amazing job on the National Anthem at the Superbowl yesterday. He played guitar and wore sunglasses and a purple jacket. It’s been a long time since Eric has sang it because he thinks it’s incredibly hard to sing. Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Adam Levine stared in an ad for T-Mobil. Because of a spotty cell connection, when Gwen meets her blind date Blake, he’s the complete opposite of what she thought he was. Not sure how but Chris Young had great seats at the game yesterday. He was in the end zone with several Chief’s fans.

Eric Church is working on a North American tour and is waiting for the right time to announce details. The tour will also include new music. Eric says he’ll go to many cities he’s been to in the past and a few new ones. His fan club members will be able to buy them first.

Keith Urban gave Eric Church a 1933 Martin guitar last Christmas. Eric found it under his tree along with a letter from Keith and said he was totally floored.

As for the three albums Eric has out in April, when asked if he’d do it again, he said, “probably not from a mental health standpoint. I was writing all day, not sleeping at night.” Eric said it was like a creative boot camp for him.

Growing up in Sneedville, TN, Morgan Wallen wanted to be a pro baseball player and was well on his way when an elbow injury ended that. He was supposed to play in college but that injury changed his direction to music and he started playing guitar and writing songs. A few years later got a record deal.

Luke Combs tour bus was built with a white interior because he’s often parked under a dark arena and that started affecting his mood. While on tour, Luke’s Saturday night tradition is “Elvising,” where after the show, he and his wife get to his already running bus and pull out before fans even get to the parking lot. 

Lindsay Ell will perform songs from her album, ‘Heart Theory,’ Feb. 12. All proceeds will go to charity and special guests will be announced soon. Tickets are on sale now at vye.live. 

The first one up in the morning at Garth’s house is Garth. He's also the one most likely to misplace something. Garth’s lost his wallet four times and each time it's been mailed back with all the money still in it. As for who has the lead foot in the family; that’s Trisha.

Finally - Blake Shelton’s confirmed a new album is on the way and “Minimum Wage’ is its first single.

Morgan Wallen gets a wake-up call & Chris Young’s next album will include Lauren Alaina

Blake Shelton‘s ‘Minimum Wage,’ is quickly climbing the charts. Years ago he roofed houses, making less than minimum wage. Blake only needed money to pay rent, so he could play guitar all weekend.

Morgan Wallen’s been learning what it means to be a celebrity and says what happened with Saturday Night Live was the wake-up call he desperately needed. He said, “I get that I offended some people, but I’m not a malicious person. I’m just a little bit rowdy and a little bit wild. It’s just how I am.”

Luke Bryan's duck hunting date & Eric Church says he’ll be back on the road this year

Luke Bryan and his wife went on a duck hunting date this weekend. I don’t know how but Luke got their Polaris stuck in brown water that filled the cabin up to the vehicle’s seat. His wife sarcastically said, “this date’s going great.”

Blake Shelton joked about gaining 117 pounds during quarantine. He says he wants to lose 20 before he marries Gwen. So he doesn’t let people down, Blake’s now changed his goal to losing 10 pounds. As for his quarantine mullet Blake cut it off saying, “you can't be fat and have a mullet.”

I have two of the crazy on-line rumors about Kenny Chesney. His staffers must say “the pearl is in the river” to get into his dressing room. It’s a line from the Chevy Chase film, ‘Under the Rainbow.’ The rumor that’s been around forever tho is Kenny was born with a tail but it was removed at birth. Supposedly these tails run in Kenny's family.

Finally - Eric Church misses playing concerts and says he’s confident he’ll be back on the road this year. Eric thinks he was born to play live shows!

Carrie Underwood has secret talent & Morgan Wallen’s planning on a break

Carrie Underwood’s secret talent is organizing things. She’ll work on one space, one drawer, or an area at a time. Carrie sometimes takes everything out of her pantry and puts it back in the way it should go. She says “if you’re not going to eat it, If you haven’t worn it in a year, let it go and you feel so much lighter afterwards.” 

Morgan Wallen’s planning on a break after a busy season of putting together his recent album. He’ll be using the hiatus to focus on raising his six-month-old son, Indigo Wilder but Morgan calls him Indie. His mom says he’s just like Morgan in how he looks and how he acts. 

Miranda Lambert says her Nashville farm and animals help her unwind. She also wears no makeup and is in the same clothes for three days.

Finally - while studying in California at Butte Junior College, Jon Pardi entered a contest to write a song about not driving and driving. He won and his prize was $300. He used all of it to money to buy a P.A. system for his college band.

Lindsay Ell just adopted a puppy & Garth will receive a Kennedy Center Honor

A Tennessee State Representative has introduced a bill that would bring a Dolly Parton statue to the capitol. If passed, the statue would be on the capitol grounds facing the direction of the Ryman.

Lindsay Ell just adopted a puppy. She’s wanted a dog for years but didn’t feel like she could because of touring. She named her female pup Hendrix and I hear friends of hers from Nashville drove to New Orleans to pick Hendrix up.

Growing up Carrie Underwood’s job on the farm was when a fence got trampled by a cow or the wind blew it down if dad was out of town, Carrie had to help rig the fence up till he got home. At her property outside Nashville, Carrie’s sons help feed their horses and chickens and they even collect eggs.

Finally - Garth is among the artists who will receive 2021 Kennedy Center Honors. It’ll air June 6. The ceremony will be held during multiple events so they can physically distance audiences.

Luke Combs says his fans are the reason he was able to keep 21 crew guys on his payroll last year. He said they would not have survived the financial burden of the pandemic. In the early days Luke was his own tour manager and booking agent and said he actually enjoyed that.

We now know what Tyler Hubbard and Tim McGraw have been up to. Their new song ‘Undivided’ is here January 13. It’ll be on the deluxe version of Tim’s album, ‘Here On Earth’ out sometime this spring. Tyler co-wrote the tune when he quarantined on his bus in Nov. after testing positive for COVID. He said Tim was the first guy he wanted to hear it.

In light of Walmart leaking Morgan Wallen’s album Monday, Morgan said he’d start leaking some of the songs himself. So yesterday he released three on TikTok. When the record’s in stores Friday, Target’s the only one that’ll have two extra tunes. Walmart’s since apologized and say only a "handful" of stores were involved and they’re removing all copies till Friday’s release date.

Jason Aldean’s coffee must have at least four packets of sugar free sweetener and he needs plenty of coffee for energy. Jason also reveals his food vice is eating a huge bowl of popcorn every night.

ronnie dunn backs blake shelton & Fgl add solo to their careers

Blake Shelton has an answer for those critical of his new song, ‘Minimum Wage.’ He tweeted, “when Ronnie Dunn and Sammy Hagar have your back, it’s going to be a good year.” Yesterday Ronnie tweeted, “I slept on the floor in a musician friend’s home and played dive bars for years before I ever made a $100. Most country singers pay dues and go through things to become successful no sane human ever would.” 

Minimum Wage by Blake Shelton
Yeah, I met you 'fore anyone knew my name
Playin' for pennies on the dive bar stage
Split an all-star special on our first date in a Waffle House booth
Your daddy was cryin' when he gave you away
'Cause all those country songs I played
They didn't come with a 401k
But hey, I had you

[Chorus]
You can make a six pack on the carpet
Taste like a million dollar bill
You can make a one bed room apartment
Feel like a house up on the hill
You can make my truck out in the driveway
Roll like a cleaned up Cadillac
Girl, lookin' at you lookin' at me that way
Can make a man feel rich on minimum wage

[Post-Chorus]
Girl, your love is money, your love is money
Yeah, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage
Girl, your love is money, your love is money
Yeah, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage

[Verse 2]
You can give me a tab that's always open
Give me a yacht parked out in the ocean
But all that keepin' up with the Jones'
It just ain't my style
Just give me some lights strung out in the yard
Give me a lawn chair under the stars
The top of the world's right where you are
'Cause every time you smile

You can make a six pack on the carpet
Taste like a million dollar bill
You can make a one bed room apartment
Feel like a house up on the hill
You can make my truck out in the driveway
Roll like a cleaned up Cadillac
Girl, lookin' at you lookin' at me that way
Can make a man feel rich on minimum wage

[Post-Chorus]
Girl, your love is money, your love is money
Yeah, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage
Girl, your love is money, your love is money
Yeah, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage

Brett Eldredge owns 12 tuxedos &

Brett Eldredge was just at a restaurant in Nashville, eating outside and heard six of his Christmas songs played overhead. He said that was really weird. Because he’s part of so many Christmas celebrations, Brett owns 12 tuxedos but someone has to help him decide which one because he’s colorblind.

In 2008 Tim McGraw was in the movie, ‘Four Christmases.’ For the role, he gained 25 pounds but not because the director said to. Tim thought his character needed the extra weight and said, "I ended up being the only fat guy on set."

Chris Young got his first guitar as a Christmas gift. He said it took him a really long time to learn to play tho.

Garth reveals there’s one thing he does that gets on his wife’s nerves; he whistles constantly and it drives Trisha absolutely nuts. Thomas Rhett says what drives his wife crazy is he’s a perfectionist.

At 52, Kenny Chesney’s never been married again. He says he’s a free spirit and finds it hard to settle down. Being single for Kenny means he can stay on his boat for weeks at a time and no one cares.

Carrie Underwood’s Ugly Lasagna

Carrie Underwood’s Ugly Lasagna
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 large bell pepper, diced
24-ounce jar spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce
12-ounce box no-boil lasagna noodles
1 big handful spinach
8 ounces shredded cheese
Italian seasoning
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper (and any other veggies you want to add) and cook, stirring, until the onion is just turning golden brown and the bell pepper is soft. Set aside. Spray a slow cooker with a light coating of cooking spray, then cover the bottom with a thin layer of the sauce (just enough to coat the bottom). Break the noodles and fit them over the sauce to mostly cover the bottom in one layer. Spread a thin layer of spinach over the noodles and sprinkle with the onion-bell pepper mixture and whatever other veggies you have prepared. Top with a thin layer of sauce and then a thin layer of cheese and a few shakes of Italian seasoning. Repeat layers of noodles, spinach, extra veggies, sauce, cheese and seasoning, until you reach the top of the slow cooker or run out of ingredients. End with a final layer of sauce and seasoning. Cover and cook the lasagna on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 3-4 hours. Check it periodically to make sure the edges aren't burning. It should be done within a couple of hours, but you can test to make sure the noodles are tender. When you're ready to serve it, scoop it out into bowls.

I don’t know how but he always remembered.”

Dolly Parton’s new fragrance line is out next spring. Actor Dylan McDermott said she mixed seven perfumes and it was so intoxicating, he almost fainted working on set with her. Dolly says people even followed her down the street wanting to know what she was wearing.

After her tune, ‘Gunpowder & Lead’ was out, based on the lyrics, fans told Miranda Lambert they thought she’d be really mean and they were scared of her. Miranda’s like, “it’s a song and I’m playing a character. I’m really nice and I promise I won’t shoot ya as long as you’re nice.”

Keith Urban's love of Promite & Miranda Lambert plants a sad tree

According to a supposed source close to Blake and Gwen, they’re prepared to get married during COVID if need be in an intimate family-only affair but that’s their Plan B. Their first idea’s to have a huge wedding with everyone in late 2021.

When Keith Urban was 10 he came home from school starving so he made a sandwich with what he could find; sour cream, banana and Promite. Promite’s only found in Australia and it’s a thick sticky spread some say tastes like either soy sauce or what your broiler pan smells like after you haven't washed it for weeks.

Miranda Lambert just planted a tree at her Tennessee farm in honor of her golden retriever who died recently. The plaque read, ‘your paws left prints on our hearts Waylon.’ Yesterday the Aldean’s chameleon Elvis had to be put to sleep due to a problem she had after laying some eggs.
