Luke Bryan’s wife has onion goggles & power goes out on Brothers Osborne

For Thanksgiving yesterday; Luke Bryan’s mom and his wife used their onion goggles. They’re $19 on Amazon and you can cut onions without tears plus smoke won’t irritate your eyes and they’re fog-free so they won’t steam up.

Brothers Osborne played the halftime show at the Bears/Lions game yesterday and just as they started to sing, all the power went out but it was thankfully restored a few minutes later.

As his home’s being built, Jason Aldean's living in Kane Brown’s old house. They were living in a rental but when Kane moved to his new home his old one hadn’t sold yet so he’s letting Jason stay in it for free. They also get to stay there until their house is done.

Brett Eldredge
went to his big brothers wedding a few days ago and instead of writing a best man speech, he wrote a song. Brett wasn’t sure if he could impossible to sing thru the tears but he did.

Finally - Tim McGraw’s first vinyl ‘Greatest Hits’ is out today but only at Wal Mart.

3 TBSP butter-flavored Crisco
A bunch of green onions, chopped
3 stems of celery, chopped
Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 teas. sage seasoning

Take an iron skillet and fill with 3 TBSP butter Crisco. Heat on stop top until melted. In a mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, 1 egg and buttermilk to the right consistency. After you've mixed, pour the melted Crisco on top of the mixture and stir until desired consistency. Leave a little Crisco in the skillet so the bread won't stick. Also sprinkle a little cornmeal in skillet before pouring the bread mixture into the skillet. Bake at 500º until brown.
Clean the chicken...wash and pull out the gizzard and liver, unwrap them and cook with the chicken. If you have a pressure cooker, cover the chicken with water and cook under pressure for 20 minutes. After cooked, set aside and let cool. Set aside the gizzard and liver for the gravy.
While the chicken is cooking, in a large bowl, crumble the cooked cornbread and add the chopped onions, celery, 3 chopped boiled eggs. Add 14-16 oz of homemade cream of chicken soup, sage, all purpose seasoning, chicken broth from the cooked chicken and stir together. If the mixture is too thick, add a little hot water until it's the right consistency. SET ASIDE 3 VERY LARGE SPOONFULS OF DRESSING FOR THE GRAVY. Bake the mixture at 350º-375º until form or brown on top, about 35-45 minutes.
Combine 14-16 oz. of homemade cream of chicken soup, the 3 spoonfuls of dressing, 2 chopped boiled eggs, gizzard & liver (chopped), a cup of cooked chicken, chopped. Add a little grated carrot for color if you have it in your kitchen. Add a little hot water for the right consistency of gravy. Cook real slow and simmer.
NOTE: Reserve the extra cooked chicken to freeze or add to your dressing before you cook it.

At last night’s American Music Awards, Kane Brown was the Favorite Male Country Artist, Dan + Shay won Duo or Group and Country Song for ‘Speechless.’ Carrie Underwood won Female Artist and Country Album for ‘Cry Pretty’ and Carrie threw some shade at the CMAs saying, “I want to thank the AMAs for making this show fan voted because they're the ones that matter and the ones that count."

Tim McGraw says he has several scars but his worst is on the back of his heel from fishing in the Bahamas. Tim caught a wahoo and got it in the boat but as he was reeling another one in, he backed up and was gashed by the wahoo’s sharp teeth. The cut was so deep you could see his Achilles tendon the fish had just missed!

Dolly Parton has a huge structure on her property she calls the Arts & Crap building because it holds everything every fan has ever given her. I also hear Dolly still writes songs using a pencil, yellow legal pad and a cassette recorder and like everyone else, she buys her cassettes on eBay.

Brad Paisley’s a big Hallmark Christmas movie fan & why dan from dan + shy won't cut his hiar

If you take a peek inside Jon Pardi’s fridge you’ll find salad stuff, eggs, spicy dill pickles and salsa. Jon also has elk meat he hunts himself. String cheese is his go-to snack and his new thing is cauliflower pizza crust. If he could work out with anyone Jon said it would be Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Brad Paisley’s a big Hallmark Christmas movie fan. His sister-in-law, Ashley Williams frequently acts in them. Ashley also revealed a secret about Brad. His freezer’s so big he sometimes put guitars in it, like three at a time along with the food. It’s called guitar relicing and it gives them a vintage aged look.

Carrie Underwood’s husband has a tune out & Erich church disses garth

Eric Church lost CMA Entertainer of the Year to Garth so at his show Saturday he changed the lyrics of ‘Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way’ to “I know Garth didn’t do it this way.” Then he smiled and shrugged his shoulders. The crowd knew what he meant and roared! The song criticizes the glitz of top selling county stars in the 70s so he inferred Garth’s fame is more glamor and materialism. Fans are bringing signs to his shows saying he’s the real Entertainer to which Eric replied, “I’m fine with it and the CMAs made the wrong fans mad.”

Blake Shelton
and Gwen Stefani have an official nickname and it’s one Blake came up with, 'Gwake.’

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 fiancé 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.

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.
