Dan + Shay's hit, ‘From the Ground Up’ has become a very popular wedding song and it was inspired by Dan’s grandparents who were married over 65 years. He says their Facebook message box is 90% full of people asking if they’d sing it at their wedding.

Tim McGraw was the surprise guest at a wedding Saturday night in Philadelphia. He’d been invited by the bride’s dad to sing, ‘My Little Girl’ during the father-daughter dance. After that he stayed and sang a few of his hits. 

Florida Georgia Line’s video for ‘May We All’ just debuted on their YouTube channel.

The 3-year court battle over Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood’s hit, ‘Remind Me’ and a similar song is over. A U.S. District judge ruled the dissimilarities in structure, melody and harmony were greater than the similarities. 

Justin Moore recently played in Chicago and saw a guy throw something at a girl in the audience then with some strong words, Justin said if he ever threw anything at a woman again at one of his shows, he’d do something about it. 

Finally – since Brett Eldredge’s puppy broke his toe, Friday he posted a photo of them wearing plastic cones from the vet with the caption, “I didn't want Edgar to feel left out so I joined him and put on the cone of shame!”

Kenny Chesney’s last tour stop is this weekend at Gillette Stadium and they’ve agreed to extend their curfew because they’re his last shows. Friday’s been extended to 11:30 PM and Saturday to 11:40 but if either show go over that, the stadium will significantly fine Kenny. Also tonight opener, Miranda Lambert will finally meet that soldier who made her cry with his sign last week. 

Brian from Florida Georgia Line is 31 today, the same day their album, ‘Dig Your Roots’ is out with guests Tim McGraw, The Backstreet Boys and reggae legend Ziggy Marley. 

While on tour, Dierks Bentley says the first thing he does on his bus after waking up is to make coffee then he plays one of 20 vinyl records he always brings along.
