Dustin Lynch Debuts Apparel Line + Keith Urban Eats Vegemite Sandwiches

In the game of ‘Would You Rather,’ Dierks Bentley says he’d rather change a dirty diaper than calm a crying baby. He says the diaper’s a lot faster and he’s never been that good at calming babies down anyway. 

Growing up in Australia, Keith Urban started singing in clubs at 17 but his guitar playing is what blew everyone away. On his breaks I hear Keith would sit in a dark corner and eat Vegemite sandwiches. 

Dustin Lynch has created his own apparel line called ‘Stay Country’ for men and women and it so far includes hats and t-shirts. Fans can buy them at Dustin and Luke Bryan's shows throughout the summer then at retail stores in the near future. 

Jason Aldean grew up in Macon, Georgia and at 14 he was already playing at the VFW Hall till two AM. He’d come home, sleep for a few hours then head to school. Jason says that’s probably why his grades weren’t so good. 

Finally - Kenny Chesney says the women who attract him are smart, funny and love the ocean.

It feels like summer already.” This weekend in Nashville at his pop-up store, Dierks surprised fans by being there and singing autographs for 6 hours. 

Finally - Kelsea Ballerini takes her status as a role model very seriously and is conscious of trying to make good decisions and be consistent. As for her best beauty advice, Kelsea always washes her face at bedtime and she doesn’t clean her hair daily so she can have a lot of texture.

That's when you get back up and walk it off." In 2012 Jake was snowboarding and broke his collarbone then in 2013 he shattered his right ring finger go-carting and part of it had to be amputated.
