Shay from Dan + Shay is going to be a dad & Drake White is battling AVM

Jake Owen’s video for ‘Homemade’ out soon recreates the story of his grandparents who’ve been married for over 70 years. In 1940, his grandfather saw his grandmother in Mumfordville, KY walking down the street. He took a picture of the house she went into with his camera then started writing her letters. They became pen pals and the rest is history.

Shay from Dan + Shay is going to be a dad again. His wife’s pregnant with their 2nd child, a son. He wrote, “we thought it was a girl, but God has other plans.”

Newcomer Drake White who opened for Scotty McCreery last weekend is battling AVM; a tangle of arteries and veins in the brain that disrupts blood flow. He had a procedure for it days before his show so I’m pretty sure that’s why he nearly collapsed. Doctors say Drake’s treatments have gotten rid of 75% of his issue so far.

Finally - Lauren Alaina will be on Dancing With The Stars next season. There’s speculation her partner will be Alan Bersten. Today on Twitter Old Dominion has a Q & A session at 11:30 AM ET.
