Garth is on the Kelly Clarkson show today. When he shot the video for Dive Bar recently his band had to be scuba certified as it was all filmed under water. They were trained in a motel pool in a bad part of town, east Nashville, because that’s the only place that had one 10 feet deep. The amps and gear used were wrecked in Nashville’s 2010 flood so Garth got them all for free. He and Blake had fans on them as they sang to move their clothes and hair so it seemed like they were under water.

blake and Gwen's video debuts & Ingrid Andress hopes pixar comes calling

The video for Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s tune, ‘Nobody But You’ debuted today. I really liked it! One of my favorite scenes was when they’re eating in a diner and Blake uses a french fry as a microphone when he sings to Gwen. They also show scenes of them at his farm, on a coach with one of his dogs and a few more lovely dovey things but it’s not too over the top.

Speaking of Blake, he says the strangest gift he ever got from a fan was found one night after he got off stage. Among the stuffed animals there was a brown paper sack and when he opened it, an iguana crawled out! Blake said he screamed like a girl when it launched itself from the sack and landed on his shirt. It’s funny he was surprised because growing up Blake was obsessed with the Texas horned lizard.

As a baby, Luke Bryan was so sickly, his mom had to bounce him a lot. She hummed while she bounced him and Luke could actually hum songs before he could even talk. In the 2nd grade Luke was hit by a car but thankfully did not have any permanent damage.

Besides music, Ingrid Andress has a goal to voice an animated character in a Pixar movie but in a funny role. Ingrid says she doesn’t ever want to be the romantic interest.

Finally - Maren Morris’ husband Ryan Hurd has been spoiling his wife during her pregnancy. He’ll not only walk downstairs to get her ice cream now, he’ll take it back when she’s done.

Sam Hunt was supposed to be in a Nashville court room Friday on DUI charges but the hearing was canceled so it can be heard by a grand jury March 17 in Nashville.

Maren Morris is pregnant and her son will be born in March. She still work’s out with a trainer several times a week but with modifications like elevated push-ups.

Maren says that’ll happen when you’re an artist who employs women.

Last week Thomas Rhett and his road crew were spotted in Frankfort, Kentucky having lunch at Chick-fil-A.

When Dan + Shay sang at Justin Bieber’s wedding last year they were glad they’d both had their weddings because Justin’s was quite extravagant.

Tim McGraw was in New Orleans yesterday for the College Football National Championship and he’s getting a lot of haters. He performed his new single, ‘Way Down’ with rapper Shy Carter and people said he’s trying to copy what Billy Ray Cyrus did with Old Town Road. The lyric has ‘way down’ sung almost 70 times.

His other openers are Midland and Ingrid Andress

Because calling in sick for Miranda Lambert means she’d have to cancel a concert, she’ll often get a steroid and a B12 shot if she’s not feeling well. When it’s really hot at her summer shows she’ll have paramedics give her IV’s. Miranda says that helps a lot.

Luke Bryan doesn't care if people like his music as long as he can be free to make what he wants. Luke says, “one minute, I'm the savior of country music. The next, I've ruined it.”

Jason Aldean said he’s always been thin but as he gets close to 43, that’s changed so he met with a nutritionist last year. He said, “it's not rocket science. I do a lot of protein and vegetables and not too many carbs or sugar.” In between meals Jason has a protein bar.

Luke Combs has a story about himself that sounds like a lie but is true. When he was at one of his first label meetings in Nashville he was told the songs weren’t good enough. They eventually all went #1. Luke said, “the moral of the story, don’t ever let anyone stop you from chasing your dreams.”

Miranda Lambert

This recipe is inspired by Blake Shelton’s popular Ole Red restaurant chain.
Champagne of Fried Chicken
¾ cup dill pickle brine
3 Tbsp kosher salt, divided
3 (12-oz) bottles Miller High Life, divided
1 fresh thyme sprig
1 bay leaf
1 whole chicken, cut into 8-10 pieces
Canola oil, for frying
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ cup finely ground cornmeal
2 Tbsp smoked paprika
1½ Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp onion powder
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp cayenne
In a small saucepan, combine pickle brine and 2 Tbsp salt to a boil. Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until salt dissolves. Remove from heat; stir in 2 bottles of beer, thyme sprig and bay leaf. Transfer to a bowl large enough to hold brine and chicken. Cool to room temperature; refrigerate until cold. Add chicken to cold brine; refrigerate 6-12 hours. Fill a large Dutch oven or pot with 3 inches oil. Heat to 350°F. In pie plate, combine flour, cornmeal, remaining 1 Tbsp kosher salt, paprika, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, dried thyme and cayenne. Pour remaining bottle of beer into a shallow bowl. Set a wire rack over a sheet pan. Working with one piece at a time, remove chicken from brine, shaking off excess. Dredge in flour mixture, dip in beer and dredge again in flour mixture. Place on wire rack; let stand 3 minutes. Fry 8-10 minutes or until golden and chicken registers 165°F on a meat thermometer, turning to cook evenly. (Fry chicken in batches to avoid overcrowding pan.) Drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
