Miranda Lambert makes guest appearance and Garth sends wedding gifts to fans

Little Big Town played three sold-out shows this weekend at the Ryman and it included two surprise guests, Miranda Lambert and Ronnie Dunn. Their Ryman residency will continue with shows in September and November but for the most part they are already sold out. 

In June, Garth promised some fans in the audience that were soon to get married that he’d send them a wedding gift and this weekend they started arriving; a KitchenAid mixer, an expensive iron, a Cuisinart meat grinder, two lounge chairs and some patio lights. 

Thomas Rhett says life with his adopted daughter Willa means he’ll walk offstage then go change a dirty diaper. They thought she may be shy since her life now is drastically different than it was in Uganda but Thomas says she’s never met a stranger and Willa’s always the life of the party. Lauren is due August 8th with their daughter. 

Brett Eldredge says his secret talent is he can clap with only one hand. 

Finally – happy 39th birthday to Zac Brown today.

When Dierks Bentley moved to Nashville in 1994, he played for tips on Music Row. Dierks says, “whenever I go down now and play, it’s pretty cool but the people who sing there for a living I could not do because they pretty much have to know every song.” 

Finally - Jason Aldean is working on a new album and he’ll be putting the finishing touches on it in a couple weeks. His wife’s expecting a baby boy soon and Jason says he’s excited to do all of his son’s Christmas shopping this year at Tractor Supply.
