Brett Eldredge Goes Incognito + Blake Shelton Plays With Nashville House Band

Brett Eldredge was out with a friend in Nashville yesterday in disguise. He had a wig on from his drawer full of them and I hear the name he uses, at least with that wig, is Xander.
Miranda Lambert has her own tour this year plus she’s opening for Kenny Chesney on select dates and says it’s been a great. Her show’s done by 9 and that gives her time to see Kenny’s and learn from him. Miranda takes things from that, back to her tour so she says it can be “bigger and better.

During last week’s CMA Music Fest in Nashville on a random afternoon on lower Broadway, Blake Shelton walked in a bar unannounced and played a few tunes with the house band.

Besides guitar, Keith Urban also plays sitar; a stringed instrument from India plus bass, drums, piano and a 6-string banjo called a ganjo.

Finally - when Jason Aldean first moved to Nashville, he was so poor he’d buy a package of bologna and a loaf of bread and that’s all he ate for a week.
