blake shelton produces a moive & Dolly Parton’s film 'Dumplin’ is out on Netflix today

Sunday night on the Hallmark Channel, Blake Shelton and his mom Dorothy executive produced a new movie, ‘Time For Me To Come Home For Christmas.’ It’s about an up and coming country star but no word if Blake makes a cameo in it.  

Speaking of Blake, Gwen Stefani thought she’d found him the perfect Christmas gift; a leaf blower. So she texted some friends to see what they thought and she accidentally included Blake. He responded, ‘that’s the perfect gift’ then confessed he’d bought one the week before. Gwen also reveals Blake’s addicted to puffed Cheetos and he even has them for breakfast.  

Dolly Parton’s movie ‘Dumplin’ is out on Netflix today. It’s the story a young girl inspired by Dolly’s music as she rebels against the beauty-pageant culture of her mom. Dolly relates because she used to weigh 50 pounds more than she does now and says, “I’ve always been criticized and bullied because of being different and being myself." Dolly will be on The Talk later today.  

Florida Georgia Line’s album out in early 2019 will have several stars on it like Jason Aldean.  

Finally – Shania guests on Live with Kelly and Ryan today.

Thomas Rhett made a childhood dream come true & Carrie Underwood is one of People’s 25 Most Intriguing

Thomas Rhett made a childhood dream come true for his wife Lauren. They visited the set of Sesame Street yesterday. Their daughter Willa Gray was there and pretty excited about it too!  

When he’s in Africa, Tyler from Florida Georgia Line loves to visit the elephant sanctuaries. After his last trip, he came home with an elephant tattooed on his arm and said, “elephants are truly inspiring with their values and morals and the way they love and respect family. The tattoo’s also a reminder to preserve and take care of our world.”  

Carrie Underwood is one of People Magazine’s 25 Most Intriguing of 2018. She’s also the only country star on the list.  

Jake Owen’s daughter will be born next year and he thinks his six-year-old Pearl will be a great sister. Yesterday he got a letter from her teacher about the person she is to her classmates. It said she’s a kind friend and always willing to lend a helping hand.  

Finally - Dolly’s on The Ellen Show today and The Late Late Show With James Corden tonight. The funeral for President Bush is at 10 CT today on CSPAN and the Oak Ridge Boys and Reba will sing.

Thomas Rhett secretly films Mick Jagger & Billy Currington has learned a new trick

What got Garth into music was graduation day from Oklahoma State when he found out he was an hour short of his degree. He had to go back to school for three hours and to pay for it, Garth sang at Willie’s Saloon near campus. It was supposed to be for a night but they loved him so much it turned into five nights a week.  

Thomas Rhett’s first concert was the Rolling Stones. Another time when he saw them Thomas snuck a camera in and secretly filmed Mick Jagger during sound-check.  

Billy Currington not only sells coconuts to tourists on cruise ships, he’s even learned how to climb a coconut tree to get his own. He then hacks the top off with a machete to drink the water. I hear Billy spends a majority of his time in Hawaii these days.  

Finally - Eric Church’s first date with his wife was a Merle Haggard concert at the Ryman. Merle wore sunglasses and when he walked out, he just stood there and the crowd went crazy. It was three minutes before he even sang a word and Eric thought it was one of the coolest things he’d ever seen.
