Tyler Hubbard offers 'dude-la’ services & Jason Aldean’s Vegas residency goes in sale

OK! Magazine reports George Strait asked Miranda Lambert to join him on stage at his recent Gillette Stadium show but once she found out Blake Shelton would be there she backed out. A supposed source said she doesn’t want to be within “100 miles of Blake.” But it’s just not true.

New dad Tyler Hubbard joked instead of dula birthing services he’s offering dude-la’ services that includes a shoulder to lay on during contractions, back rubs and a good flashlight if needed.

Jake Owen says his therapy is going to the golf course and taking his shoes off because he likes how the grass feels on his feet. Jake says he may even like that better than actually playing golf.

Midland's 14-tune album, ‘Let It Roll’ is out today. They say the record was partly influenced by Chris Stapleton and his ability to tap into the blues and soul. The cover was shot in Austin, Texas with the guys around a vintage pink limo that had longhorns on the front.

Finally - tickets go on sale today for Jason Aldean’s residency in Vegas at Park MGM Dec. 6 thru the 8.

Shay from Dan + Shay is going to be a dad & Drake White is battling AVM

Jake Owen’s video for ‘Homemade’ out soon recreates the story of his grandparents who’ve been married for over 70 years. In 1940, his grandfather saw his grandmother in Mumfordville, KY walking down the street. He took a picture of the house she went into with his camera then started writing her letters. They became pen pals and the rest is history.

Shay from Dan + Shay is going to be a dad again. His wife’s pregnant with their 2nd child, a son. He wrote, “we thought it was a girl, but God has other plans.”

Newcomer Drake White who opened for Scotty McCreery last weekend is battling AVM; a tangle of arteries and veins in the brain that disrupts blood flow. He had a procedure for it days before his show so I’m pretty sure that’s why he nearly collapsed. Doctors say Drake’s treatments have gotten rid of 75% of his issue so far.

Yesterday the city planning commission OK’d that public trail even tho Zac spent 2-hours trying to talk them out of it.

Dierks Bentley hates to admit this for the grief he’ll get but he really likes organizing expert Marie Kondo. Dierks says she’s about getting rid of clutter and all the stuff he gets from fans comes back to his house. You figure out what’s most important and for Dierks a gold record doesn’t come close to the joy of a painting his 5-year-old made for him.

Cole Swindell is single again & hallmark's Christmas At Dollywood airs in december

Just three months after their ACM red carpet debut, Cole Swindell and pro wrestler Barbie Blank have split. Her ring name is Kelly Kelly. Their break-up was made public after a look at their Instagram revealed they were no longer following each other.

The morning Garth recorded ‘Dive Bar’ he walked into the studio in his socks. He was late and didn't want to waste time putting his boots on before he left home. Blake Shelton was turkey hunting the day Garth called asking if he wanted to sing with him. He said yes before he even heard the tune. They recorded it coincidentally wearing the same thing; hoodies, jeans, ball caps and work boots. Okie Garth said that’s just how people from Oklahoma dress.

The other day Thomas Rhett and family went out for a nice dinner. Willa Gray dressed herself wearing sweatpants and soccer shorts. Thomas said some things that aren’t worth fighting about.

Dolly Parton will appear as herself in a Hallmark movie, ‘Christmas At Dollywood’ to air in December. It’ll begin filming in the Smoky Mountains next month.

Garth kicks off our Monday at Joe’s on Weed Street & Lee Brice’s wife is his video co-star

Garth will kick off his 7-city Dive Bar Tour Monday at Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago. Jimmy Kimmel Live! will show his performance of ‘Dive Bar’ live from there on Monday night’s show. ‘Dive Bar’ will also be available for streaming from Amazon Music Monday.

Thomas Rhett’s first ever job was laying hardwood floors for his uncle. He got paid $7 an hour. Thomas says it taught him a lot about hard work but it also taught him that he didn’t want to lay hardwood floors for a living. Thomas says he can barely even open a stroller without reading the manual.

Lee Brice’s wife Sara is his video co-star in his hit ‘Rumor.’ They’ve been married for five years and he wanted fans to get a glimpse into their marriage. Lee says, “between three children and being on the road, it’s important I show Sara she’s loved and appreciated as much as I can.”

Finally - Kane Brown's single, ‘Homesick,’ was written by him and inspired by how he much missed his wife when he was on the road. It also became a tribute to those serving in the military. Kane says, “the soldiers who are overseas sacrifice so much, I wanted to honor them.”

Brett Eldredge headlines Nashville’s free 4th of July celebration tonight and we can see it on CMT. He grew up on a lake where he’d get up first thing in the morning on the Fourth because to him it was like it was Christmas. Brett says, “I loved how the community came together. We’d get out on the lake and boat then we’d have a cookout. That togetherness really made you feel like you were in an awesome place.”

Brett Eldredge's favorite late-night eatery & Miranda Lambert has a new producer

Tomorrow night, Brett Eldredge will headline Nashville’s 4th of July Celebration. After the show, he’ll stop by his favorite late-night Nashville eatery, Robert’s for the Recession Special. It’s a fried bologna sandwich, chips, a moon pie and a beer. Brett says anytime he’s there it’s like stepping back in time.

Carrie Underwood’s husband Mike sleeps on the bus couch while she’s on her tour. It’s because of her 5-month-old Jacob. Carrie says it’s a lot easier to wake up in a moving bus and just grab the baby and feed him.

Luke Combs says when fans bring signs to his show, he really can’t read them even tho he’d like to because if he does he’ll forget the next line of the song he’s singing.

Finally - now I know why Miranda Lambert’s upcoming album is such a rocker; she got a new producer, Jay Joyce; the first new producer in her 14-year career. Jay’s the long-time producer of Eric Church and Br
others Osborne. Miranda’s album is out sometime in October.

After Lee Brice played the Shake the Lake festival in Madison, Wisconsin Saturday, a 20-year-old guy was shot in the leg and a police officer hurt as he tried to help panicked people.
