Blake Shelton’s in UglyDolls out today and tomorrow Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles sings the national anthem at the Kentucky Derby

Today tickets for Blake Shelton’s concert at The Doghouse at Ole Red Tishomingo May 24 go on sale. Also today, Blake’s in, UglyDolls, voicing Ox, the mayor of Uglyville and says, “I’m proof you can be odd-looking and still be accepted and make the most out of it.”  

Jason Aldean kicks off his tour tonight and opener Kane Brown says they’re both very low-key. They became like brothers when Kane opened for Jason a few years ago. When Kane got married last year, the Aldean’s got them a $400 Vita Mix blender because he and his wife love smoothies.  

Dierks Bentley and his family said goodbye to a good friend, their 14-year-old dog George. His wife posted, “you comforted in so many difficult moments. Your absence feels like a hole the size of a Dachshund shaped universe and we’re trying to fill that hole with gratitude.”  

Saturday Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles sings the national anthem before the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby.  

Finally - Eric Church turns 42 today.
