The Luke Bryan ‘Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day’ suburban debuts and Chris Stapleton’s wife is expecting twins


The Luke Bryan ‘Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day’ suburban from Chevrolet debuted in Las Vegas yesterday. Luke says he’s proud to put his name on it and we’re not sure when people can buy it. A few days ago Luke was in Georgia with the American Idol auditions when he heard about a wedding being held down the road. He showed up with cameras rolling to surprise the newlyweds even tho Idol producers called ahead to see if it would be ok.

The CMA Awards Nov. 8 will have what they’re calling an "unprecedented opening collaboration” with Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Darius Rucker and more. We also hear Tim and Faith will be one of many duet collaborations on the show.

Shania just finished filming the movie ‘Trading Paint,’ with John Travolta. She said, “John’s a very sweet person and I’m lucky to have this experience because he was very nurturing. He coached me through it.” John plays a down and out dirt track racing legend and Shania plays a school teacher in a small southern town who falls in love with a dirt car racer. 

Darius Rucker was asked who has the ugliest golf swing in country music and he said it’s Kip Moore

Finally - this year has been amazing for Jon Pardi as he got to open for Dierks Bentley, work with Tim McGraw, spent time with Alan Jackson and Jon even got to talk to George Strait twice.
