Lady A’s Charles Kelley rasing money for charity and poor Kelsea Ballerini has the flu

Kelsea Ballerini has the 4th #1 of her career this week with ‘Legends.’ The last time a country female had four #1’s with lead singles from debut and sophomore albums was Carrie Underwood, 11 years ago. Poor Kelsea has the flu right now and tweeted, “looks like life’s reminding me I’m not invincible and that mommas don’t care if you’re on the top of the chart or at the bottom of your bank account...they still make you soup and rub your back.”

Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline have coffee together every morning, just them, no kids. Luke says, “it’s my favorite time of the day. Anytime we have 30 minutes to ourselves just to talk is great.”

Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley is hitting the slopes at the Snowmass Celebrity Ski Fest today in the Colorado Rockies. It raises money for their charity, LadyAID. The centerpiece of the two-day event’s a solo concert at a mountain lodge with Charles.

Finally – Blake Shelton kicked off his Country Music Freaks Tour last week. Opener Carly Pearce said, “even tho Blake’s a nationwide star he’s still that same Southern guy he’s always been and I really admire that.”
