Miranda Lambert’s Pistol Annies are back & Brett Eldredge has an interesting pre-show ritual

Miranda Lambert’s Pistol Annies have been rehearsing a lot so they can headline this year’s Maui Songwriters Festival. Luke Combs will also play it. Tickets go on sale October 6. I also hear the third album from Pistol Annies called ‘Interstate Gospel’ should be out sometime this fall.  

After Brett Eldredge watched a documentary about life coach Tony Robbins he was inspired to do a pre-show dance party on his bus. He plays 80s music so the band can do their most ridiculous dance moves. Brett says it gets his adrenaline going and makes him not as worried to get on stage.  

Blake Shelton’s first job at 16 was roofing houses for two summers. He says it was hard work, but it made him get in shape for the first time in his life. He also introduced his boss to his mom and they got married. They’re still together today.  

Finally - Cole Swindell’s a really good athlete and he not only played baseball, basketball and football in high school, he also went out for track and was on the golf team.
