Kane Brown performs on The Late Show & Jon Pardi's taco bell wedding

Jon Pardi was married Saturday and all guests were tested for Covid beforehand. At 11 AM they had a Taco Bell truck feed everyone lunch. Their sit-down dinner after the ceremony was chicken, steak, mashed potatoes, Caesar salad and tomato bisque. Dessert were mini churros, since neither of them are into cake. Tables were spaced apart and there were sanitation stations and custom masks handed out. Everyone laughed when Jon held his right hand out not his left for Summer to put the ring on. She said, “other hand, first-timer!" Jon says Summer was love at first sight for the first time in his life.

At last night’s American Music Awards Favorite Male Artist was Kane Brown. Favorite Female Maren Morris. Favorite Country Album went to Blake Shelton Fully Loaded: God’s Country and the Favorite Due or Group was Dan + Shay.

As for all this pandemic time off, Garth says, “when the green flag drops as long as everybody’s safe, it’ll be like running to the buffet line like you haven’t eaten in years.”

Luke Combs calls his 10 egg laying chickens, ‘pets that pay the rent.’ Luke also just beat Garth’s chart record since Luke just spent his 34th week at #1 with, ‘What You See Is What You Get.’ He’s now the first artist since the charts debut in 1964 to have two albums at #1 for at least 34 weeks.

It's no longer in business but the guy who owned it still had some carts. He gave one to Garth for free and Trisha now has a vintage shopping cart for when they come home from buying groceries.

Jon Pardi performs on Jimmy Kimmel Live & why Keith Urban felt like Jim Carrey

Jon Pardi performs on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. we know coronavirus changed his May wedding with 300 guests to now only 75 later this month, in a big barn so people can be spaced out.

Early in the pandemic, Keith Urban says he felt like Jim Carrey in ‘Dumb and Dumber’ in that scene where he’s sitting in a bathroom stall, sucking his thumb. Keith didn’t know what to do and says he felt weird for quite a while.

After her tune, ‘Gunpowder & Lead’ was out, based on the lyrics, fans told Miranda Lambert they thought she’d be really mean and they were scared of her. Miranda’s like, “it’s a song and I’m playing a character. I’m really nice and I promise I won’t shoot ya as long as you’re nice.”

Keith Urban's love of Promite & Miranda Lambert plants a sad tree

According to a supposed source close to Blake and Gwen, they’re prepared to get married during COVID if need be in an intimate family-only affair but that’s their Plan B. Their first idea’s to have a huge wedding with everyone in late 2021.

When Keith Urban was 10 he came home from school starving so he made a sandwich with what he could find; sour cream, banana and Promite. Promite’s only found in Australia and it’s a thick sticky spread some say tastes like either soy sauce or what your broiler pan smells like after you haven't washed it for weeks.

Miranda Lambert just planted a tree at her Tennessee farm in honor of her golden retriever who died recently. The plaque read, ‘your paws left prints on our hearts Waylon.’ Yesterday the Aldean’s chameleon Elvis had to be put to sleep due to a problem she had after laying some eggs.

Finally – when Luke Combs got married recently, he was pretty sure he’d cry when he saw Nicole walk down the aisle. What he didn’t know is he was actually doubled-over crying.

When Dierks Bentley moved his family out west in March, it was to the tiny mountain town of Ouray, Colorado, population just over 1,000. There’s several hotels, restaurants and brewery’s as it’s a tourist destination. It also has a natural mineral hot springs to soak in. Dierks says his days are spent hiking, biking, fishing with his kids and coaching a hockey team.

Jon Pardi’s fiancĂ© says he’s not perfect. He leaves his underwear next to the hamper and she has to pick them up. His complaint with her is she wears the same thing every day; leggings and an old baggy t-shirt. Jon just added a 5th dog to their pack; Bruce, a French bulldog puppy. He joins two cattle dogs, an Airedale terrier and another Frenchie.

Back in 2001, Kenny Chesney was supposed to be shooting a music video at the World Trade Center in New York City on the morning of 9/11. But an equipment delay caused the plan to be nixed at the last minute.

Garth injury update & Luke Combs shaves his head

When Garth recently hurt his left hand on their farm he was building a deck. As he was cleaning up and loading the chop saw, it collapsed so Garth grabbed the back end and his left hand broke the fall. He was afraid to look so he used his right hand to feel and make sure his left hand was still there. It’ll be black and blue for a while, but Garth said he got lucky. Trisha added, “it’s not the first time and I’m always happy when he comes back with all his limbs.”

Finally - Luke Combs recently shaved his head and says it’s harder for fans to recognize him. When he wears a mask out in public, fans have an even harder realizing it’s him. Luke said he doesn’t really mind that.
