Kane Brown hangs at Nashville's Topgolf a lot & Brantley Gilbert will give free companion dogs to veterans

If you wanna run into Lauren Alaina next time you’re in Nashville, her hang out’s the Red Door Saloon. Kane Brown says the place he’s at a lot is Topgolf for their 100 high-tech virtual driving range bays. Jake Owen and Lady A’s Charles Kelley are often seen at Topgolf too. Kane says a lot of people try and hit the real guy in the protected cart that's picking up all the range balls.

Brantley Gilbert will give free companion dogs to veterans at eight of his tour stops. He says, “the dogs are trained to help their veteran cope with stress, memories and triggers people can’t see and provide them with a sense of solid grounding." The dogs were all rescue animals as well.  

Chris Janson recently became the newest and youngest member of the Opry. He began his time in Nashville living in a car and says, “everybody has to find their path in this town. Every time I tried to do it somebody else's way, I faltered and fell and it never worked.”  

Finally - Thomas Rhett’s fall leg of his Life Changes tour will have openers Brett Young and Midland. It kicks off September 13 and tickets go on sale Friday. Thomas says what’s really important for him is to be a role model for the kids that come to his show. He also says in the future pretty much all his songs will be about his children.
