Friday...


Luke Bryan has a show tonight in Houston. Hurricane Harvey’s first responders get in free and Luke will donate all proceeds to benefit the Houston Community Fund as they rebuild. 

Midland’s amazing debut record, ‘On The Rocks,’ is out today so is Chris Janson’s ‘Everybody’ and he’ll be in concert Saturday and you can watch it for free at 11:30 AM CT at CountryMusicHallOfFame.org. 

Dustin Lynch told me his favorite thing ever is Hellman’s mayonnaise and he often mixes it with ketchup for his fries. Dustin calls it poor man’s thousand island. 

Little Big Town perform on The View today. 

Finally - Josh Turner hasn’t carried a wallet for years now. A money clip scratched his credit cards so now he carries everything loose in his pocket and he says he never loses anything.

Shania will join upcoming show The Launch and Midland’s Mark Wystrach on his massive heart attack


Shania will join the upcoming show The Launch as a mentor. The six-part global music TV talent search shoots soon in Toronto and will premiere on CTV next year. 

Carrie Underwood and her co-writers are saddened by the songwriters who are suing them saying they stole their version of ‘Something In The Water.’ They say they wrote it. You may remember last year, Carrie and Brad Paisley faced a similar lawsuit for ‘Remind Me’ and won. 

A few days before graduating from college Midland’s lead singer Mark Wystrach had a massive heart attack from a bacterial infection he got surfing in dirty water. Mark said that led to he and his brother-in-law starting The People’s Movement, a footwear company using organic materials, ecofriendly packaging and old plastic bags he finds all over the island of Bali and also California. 

Growing up, Dustin Lynch did motocross and one time his dad was racing him when Dustin crashed and his dad was too close behind him to change course so he landed on Dustin’s back and just buzzed across it. Dustin thinks his tire tread mark scar is the coolest thing he’s ever seen. 

Before he got a record deal, Dierks Bentley worked at the Nashville Network as a researcher. He called it his paper-route gig because it kept him housed and fed. 

Finally - happy 50th birthday to Faith Hill today.

Carrie Underwood gets sued and Kenny Chesney is making medical airdrops to St. John


Carrie Underwood and her ‘Something In The Water’ co-writers are being sued over their #1 tune. Canadian songwriters, Ron McNeill and Georgia Lyons say in 2014 they pitched Carrie’s producer a song with the same title and very similar lyrics and hook. 

Kenny Chesney and his team have been getting supplies to the hurricane damaged island of St. John on a daily basis. Their airdrops include medical supplies and he seems to be doing more than even their government is. People there say Kenny is keeping them alive and most of his efforts have been kept under the radar. 

Little Big Town and Midland perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight. Speaking of Midland, before they were famous, lead singer Mark Wystrach was a Calvin Klein model, Cameron Duddy’s a music video director for acts like Bruno Mars and Jess Carson was known for the made vintage clothing he made and sold. 

Finally - Brett Eldredge has been opening for Luke Bryan and because touring can be stressful, before taking the stage, Brett does meditation. He calls it time for himself and he has a special place on the bus where he takes time alone to meditate.
