Blake Shelton's a Pig + Rascal Flatts Open Ohio Eatery

Blake Shelton voices Earl, a pig in the upcoming ‘Angry Birds’ movie. He says when it came to providing Earl’s voice, producers kept telling him it needed to be more country so he felt like he was doing a voice-over for Dukes of Hazzard. 

Rascal Flatts are opening a restaurant on the water in Cleveland, Ohio, where they’re from. It’ll be eclectic; mixing country, rustic and industrial plus there will also be an indoor performance space. 

Saturday night in Phoenix, Carrie Underwood performs and Reba emcees Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night. Carrie’s husband Mike finally got to sing with Garth yesterday and she was jealous he got to do that before she did. She tweeted, “I'll try to see if Wayne Gretzky wants to play hockey sometime!” Garth wrote, “so glad our Instagram dreams came full circle.” 

Finally - a private funeral service for Merle Haggard is tomorrow at his home studio in California. His family’s asking for donations to be made in his name to St. Jude Children's Hospital.
