Jason Aldean’s noticeably thinner & Dolly never goes on Dollywood rides

Jason Aldean’s been eating low carb and sugar free to be healthier and he’s noticeably thinner. He didn’t even change his workout schedule he just started eating better. When Jason kicks off his tour in 2020, he says he won’t be using fire on stage as he’s had a few close calls in the past.

In his spare time on the road, Kane Brown plays a lot of the game cornhole. It’s something he and his band have done together ever since they started touring.

Blake Shelton’s new favorite thing is a huge planter and seeder he recently got delivered. Besides the vegetables he already grows, Blake planted several acres of alfalfa with his new seeder.

Luke Combs major in college was criminal justice and he wanted to be a homicide detective. The intriguing part for him would be solving the puzzle. He says writing a song is like a puzzle that has no pieces and you have to put them together.

Finally - Dolly Parton never goes on the rides at Dollywood. She says parts of her don’t do well in high speed plus she gets motion sickness really easy.

Wednesday, November 6, 2019

No dress code is posted at Jason Aldean's Kitchen + Rooftop Bar in Nashville yet a woman said her husband was denied entrance because of his race and his hoodie. She noted several white customers were let in with hoodies tho. The TC Restaurant Group actually owns Jason's Kitchen and they've promised to investigate and take action. It sounds like third-party security contractors violated policy.

Luke Combs past jobs included bouncer at a bar and he also lived above that bar between the tanning salon and Domino’s Pizza. He said he could hear the salon phone ringing at all hours of the night. Luke also folded shirts at an Izod store and his fiancĂ© makes fun of him all the time because he still folds his shirts the way he did in that store.

Miranda Lambert and her husband live part-time in New York City. She loves to people watch at The Red Lion bar and Miranda also likes that she can walk around the city anonymously.

Finally – Reba’s split with Skeeter, her boyfriend of 2-years. It happened in May but she’s kept it a secret till now.

Tim McGraw’s on Live With Kelly & Ryan today & Luke Combs makes his own deer sausage

Tim McGraw’s on Live With Kelly & Ryan today because his book is out, ‘Grit & Grace: Train the Mind, Train the Body, Own Your Life.’ Tim lost 40 pounds several years ago because he wanted to be around for his kids and grandkids. Tim says, “I feel my best years are still ahead of me.”

Luke Combs lives on 140 acres and when he’s home, he hunts. Luke hasn’t bought meat from a store in years. He even makes his own deer sausage. Someday, he plans to grow corn, wheat and millet. When he’s home Luke’s job is cleaning the cat litter box.

Miranda Lambert says her husband Brendan has brought her a level of joy she never knew existed. He's positive and upbeat which is good for her because Miranda says she tends to lean negative. She adds he even happily does laundry without being asked.

Finally - Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts will interview Dolly Parton for an hour-long special November 12 on ABC. Luke Bryan and Carrie Underwood will also make an appearance.

On Saturday Jason Aldean posted a photo showing what happened when he let his wife put out the deer corn he uses for hunting. In corn kernels on the ground, Brittany spelled out, “it’s at trap.”

Thomas Rhett’s daughter Willa Gray turned four on Saturday and her gift was something she’d been wanting a long time; she got her ears pierced and didn’t even cry till it was all done.

The making of Miranda Lambert’s album, ‘Wildcard’ debuts today but only on Apple Music. Speaking of Miranda, her hatred of beach balls at shows started in 09 on tour with Kenny Chesney. She was singing a ballad when a beach ball hit the mic which hit her lip, busting it open and making it bleed. That’s when Miranda started carrying a knife on stage to pop them.

Blake Shelton’s net worth has increased greatly since 2017. That’s when he made Forbes list with $31.5 million. I hear Blake’s net worth now is around $80 million.

Finally - Tim McGraw’s on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight.
