Luke Bryan and a few fans got to preview his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum that opens to everyone tomorrow. Luke told the crowd, "I wake up every day and figure out how to make people smile and have a good time. Thanks for letting me have a place in the magical world of Nashville."

When he needs to recharge his batteries, Tyler Farr’s farm near Nashville’s the place. He says, “I turn my phone off and just sit on the back porch cause that's when I seem to write my best songs.”

Finally – Karen from Little Big Town loves candy and her favorite is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups but her bandmate with the biggest sweet tooth is appropriately, Phillip Sweet.

Luke Bryan’s ‘Kill The Lights’ is Out Aug. 7 + Brad Paisley Opens For The Rolling Stones



Luke Bryan’s next album, ‘Kill The Lights’ is out Aug. 7 and his ‘Dirt Road Diary’ exhibit opens today thru Nov. 8 at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Among the items on loan are his Little League baseball uniform and glove. 

Luke’s 13-year-old nephew, Til, came to live with them last year after his dad died suddenly and he says it’s going very well. Til has two older sisters who just started dating so Luke’s new role is watching out for them too and trying to scare the boys they're interested in.

It's been awhile since he was an opening act, but Brad Paisley’s landed maybe the best one he’s ever had – he’ll open for the Rolling Stones’ June 17 when they play Nashville’s LP Field.

Carrie Underwood’s first post baby performance is the CMT Awards June 7. Her son Isaiah will only be 2 ½ months old then. Also singing on the show so far are Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Lady A, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line.

Finally - Tyler Farr recently went hunting with Blake Shelton on his 2,000 acres that also includes a pond and a lake. Tyler’s nicknamed Blake’s place, Jurassic Park.
