Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey hospitalized & Jake Owen reveals daughter's illness

Old Dominion’s lead singer Matthew Ramsey was in the hospital yesterday. He was trying to change a light bulb and fell off a ladder. He broke a rib, had a collapsed lung and some scrapes & bruises. Matt’s back home now and recovering with what he calls “the fun pills.” He says, “make sure you have someone hold your ladder.”

I found out why Jake Owen’s daughter Paris was recently in the hospital. He thought she had a bad cold, but her eczema added a few complications like she wasn’t able to breathe. Jake rushed Paris to the hospital and doctors ended keeping her overnight.

The CMA is partnering with Feeding America to provide meals in cities with large populations of musicians and people in the music biz who are unemployed due to the pandemic. Blake Shelton’s been working on getting financial support for the food banks. He’s been paying his band and crew over the last year, but that's not the case for most.

Finally – Thomas Rhett's wife Lauren is launching a podcast today on Annie Downs Podcast Network.
