Lady Antebellum is expanding by two and Trisha’s Kitchen debuts on the Food Network Saturday


Lady Antebellum is expanding by two. Hillary’s expecting her second child in February and Dave’s wife Kelli will have their second child, a daughter in December. 

Billy Currington loves to free dive. That’s where he puts on weights so he can quickly go down to the ocean floor then he’ll sit there for a while. Billy learned to hold his breath as a kid from his sister who was a swimming instructor and today he can easily hold it for well over a minute. 

If he could have an endless supply of any food, Josh Turner told me its peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. He never gets tired of them and he has one every night after a show. Josh jokes the title of his autobiography’s gonna be ‘Peanut Butter and Jelly Saved My Life.’ 

Brett Eldredge says going home for a visit means he gets to eat his mom’s incredible cooking and his all-time favorite is her meatloaf. 

Finally - tomorrow, Trisha Yearwood’s 10th season of Trisha’s Kitchen debuts on the Food Network. One thing she’ll be making is a grilled cheese sandwich using a donut for the bread.

Luke Bryan gets out of a speeding ticket and Shania will hit the road in 2018


Luke Bryan was fishing in Wyoming with his sons a few weeks ago but in the middle of their trip he had to do a gig 3 hours away. He and his bus driver rented a car instead of using the bus. They were going 80 plus MPH and got pulled over. For some reason the officer came to the passenger side where Luke was and once he realized it was Luke, they didn’t get a ticket. 

Speaking of Luke, next time you’re at his show and before you go in, you may see a guy riding a bicycle with spandex shorts and a Cabela’s plaid top. That’s Luke. He says he gets heckled a lot for the outfit but fans have no idea who they’re even heckling. 

Shania will hit the road in 2018 and her tour kicks off May 3 in Tacoma, WA and runs through September 4 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Vegas. Tickets go on sale August 25. 

Thomas Rhett‏ tweeted, “I just realized Blake Shelton's hometown may or may not have inspired our daughter’s name.” He’s from Ada, Oklahoma and that’s the name of their new daughter. 

Finally - tonight Little Big Town perform on Late Night with Seth Myers.
