thomas rhett makes it official and darius rucker rocks with john mellencamp

After filming the video for ‘Flatliner’ this week Cole Swindell and Dierks Bentley flew home on Dierks plane. Cole says, “even tho I hate traffic, I’m still not interested in getting my pilot’s license but I can see how people get hooked on it.” 

Even tho they just had a gender reveal party, Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren made it official at a doctor visit yesterday; they’re 100 % having a girl in August. Right now her name is Baby Akins. I find it interesting Lauren calls him ‘Thomas Rhett’ almost like it’s one name. 

Josh Turner has a huge collection of vinyl records so May 12, his new album, ‘Deep South’ will be out on vinyl. Two of his treasures a Hank Williams record that's never been opened and a Johnny Cash album he bought at an antique store and found out when he got home, it was autographed. 

Newcomer RaeLynn’s debut album, ‘Wildhorse’ is out today. She will also realize a dream come true when she performs on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. 

Finally - Darius Rucker and John Mellencamp meet up on CMT Crossroads tonight.

Keith Urban has set the bar high for husbands and Brett Eldredge turns 31

Keith Urban has set the bar high for husbands after he told Harry Connick Jr yesterday when Nicole was pregnant and visiting family in Sydney, Australia, she needed an ultrasound so Keith took a flight in the middle of the night from Nashville, landed at 9 AM in Sydney, went to the ultrasound, they had lunch and he flew home. He was only there 5 hours. 

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill say they don’t really go to parties and they’re usually in bed by 9. 

Happy 31st birthday to Brett Eldredge. A few days ago Brett was in his hometown of Paris, IL, playing to 3,000 people in his old high school gym. The concert will air on CMT’s Hometown Heroes later this month. Brett also visited Laker Stadium, a baseball field where he helped put up the new scoreboard. After that his dad pitched him some balls and a couple times Brett almost hit it over the fence. 

Finally - Faith Hill’s 50 in September and says, “the secret is being confident with your age and with yourself. I’m OK with having lines. I want people to know I’ve smiled a lot.” Because Tim has such great skin she often uses him as a test subject when she wants to try a new moisturizer.

Brett Eldredge heads to spring training and Keith Urban's on Harry Connick Jr’s show

We thought Brett Eldredge was recording his next album in a castle far away but it’s really a studio called The Castle in Nashville. It’s a massive castle built in the late 1920’s for gangster Al Capone. Over the next few days tho, Brett’s in Mesa, AZ for the Cubs spring training. He has a lot of friends on the team and says he’s gonna try to hit some balls with them too.

As for Thomas Rhett’s star potential, his dad, country singer Rhett Akins said, “if he keeps going, he’s not far from being Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church or any of those guys.” 

Keith Urban is on Harry Connick Jr’s daytime talk show today. 

Besides owning seven dogs, Miranda Lambert also has a cat and several horses and ponies, even a fancy Gypsy Vanner horse Blake Shelton got her shortly before their divorce. 

Josh Turner’s soon married 14 years and says the secret is, “you have to make time for each other but like anyone else, you also need to take a break from each other sometimes.” 

Finally – tomorrow Jon Pardi performs on Good Morning America.
