Kelsea Ballerini Hosts New TV Show + Brad Paisley Donates $100K


Kelsea Ballerini and Arsenio Hall host the 6-episode, Greatest Hits, debuting tonight on ABC. It showcases tunes of iconic artists from 1980 and 2005. Kelsea says Arsenio’s taught her it’s not just about reading the prompter, it’s really about the energy you bring. At some point, Little Big Town perform on the show and so will Kelsea. 

On June 23, flooding in Brad Paisley’s home state of West Virginia killed 20 and destroyed entire towns. He’s asking us to help at gofundme.com/WestVirginiaFloods. Brad gave it $100,000 yesterday and his goal is to raise a million dollars. Brad’s there today to meet people affected by the floods. Right now the fund’s at almost 216, 000 dollars. 

Jake Owen’s album, ‘American Love’ is out July 29 and it’s by far his favorite record he’s ever made. Jake says it’s the first one where he’s really comfortable with what he wants to say. Going thru a divorce last year was tough so Jake says not every tune’s a happy-go-lucky love song. 

Finally - Chris Young has a live Facebook chat today at 1 PM CT from the studio where he’s recording a new album.
