Keith Urban leads ACM nominees and Josh Turner's album ready for pre-sale

The ACM nominees are out and Keith Urban leads with seven. Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris are tied with six, Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw have five and Dierks Bentley, Thomas Rhett and Chris Stapleton have three nods each. 

On Sunday’s Grammy red carpet, Thomas Rhett’s wife Lauren was pregnant but didn’t want anyone to know yet. She’d been really sick and wasn’t sure what would happen on the red carpet but her saving grace were the saltine crackers hidden in her purse just in case she felt nauseous. 

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have been married 20 years and he thinks the best gift for a 20-year marriage is salt water, sand and a spear gun.

Josh Turner’s new album, 'Deep South,' is out March 10 but it’s for pre-sale now. He hasn’t had new music out in ages because he wanted to be home and help raise his four young sons. 

Finally - Jon Pardi’s the only one in his family that’s musical. His grandma that would make him sing to the radio when he was two and Jon says, “I just started singing and never stopped.”
