is carrie underwood trying to tell us something & blake shelton is scared of roller coasters

When Carrie Underwood told us she was pregnant she wore pink. Lately she’s been seen wearing a lot of blue when she sings causing some to wonder if she’s trying to tell us something. Carrie already knows the sex of her baby and even what its name will be. 3-year-old Isaiah’s excited about having a sibling but he’s already told his mom he won’t be changing any quote, “poopy diapers.”  

When Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani went to Disneyland a few years ago it was his first time. He’s scared of rides so Blake said he had to think twice before getting on the kiddie roller coaster, Peter Pan's Flight. How did he even fit?  

Garth’s show at Notre Dame Stadium Saturday night will have 5 front rows, almost 81,000 will be there and it’ll be recorded for a TV special in December. Garth has suggested a "game day" theme for tomorrow and he’ll have a free pre-show sound check just for the students.  

Finally - George Strait’s added to his Vegas residency, Feb. 1 and 2 and tickets go on sale today. George’s 33 Platinum albums still puts him at third behind The Beatles and Elvis.

Garth’s stadium tour kicks off next spring & Dierks Bentley gave out end of tour gifts

Garth’s 3-year stadium tour kicks off next spring visiting 12 stadiums and the first five dates are on sale before Christmas. Saturday’s concert is being taped for Garth: Live At Notre Dame airing on CBS Dec. 2. He hinted he may also do a residency at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.  

It's been 50 years since Elvis's 1968 TV special and next year there will be a tribute to him with performers that include Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Pistol Annies, Dierks Bentley and Carrie Underwood.  

Dierks Bentley’s Mountain High tour is coming to an end so he gave tour gifts yesterday to openers Brother’s Osborne and Lanco. They each got their own Sea Doo jet ski and a trailer.  

Growing up, Eric Church’s dad had an ugly beige Pontiac with bench seats in the back. It was long before you had to wear a seat belt so Eric stood up bouncing all over the place as his dad drove.  

Finally - the new talent show Faith Hill’s a judge on, The World’s Best will air February 3; right after the Super Bowl.
