Chris Janson’s grateful to be alive & Luke Bryan announces tour dates

While on a tropical vacation last week, Maren Morris saw an article in a British tabloid, The Sun claiming Luke Bryan was the father of her 1-year-old Hayes. Maren’s husband is Ryan Hurd and since then The Sun fixed their story. Maren thought the mistake was funny.

Several days ago Chris Janson’s family was asleep when his wife barely heard a smoke alarm beep. A fire had started in his basement studio and by the time Chris got there, the flames were 7 feet high. While no official cause has been determined, Chris thinks his old laptop overheated because the battery was burned up. The bottom floor of his home has to be gutted and Chris says he’s grateful to be alive. He wants to remind us to change the batteries in our smoke alarms.

Brett Young's next project, ‘Weekends Look A Little Different These Days’ is out June 4.

Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan Vegas residency & Luke Combs is on the Opry saturday

Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan have partnered with the new Resorts World Las Vegas hotel that opens June 24. The resort talks about A-list entertainers and it has to be a mini residency. Luke wrote, “looks like a good time. I’ll be there sometime in May.”

On ACM night, Tenille Arts boyfriend asked her to wax his nose hairs so he’d be red carpet ready. Even tho she thought it was disgusting and gross, she said yes because he basically forced her to do it.

Saturday night Luke Combs will perform two sets on the Opry during the 8 CT hour. It’ll be on Luke’s Facebook, Twitter or YouTube.

Finally - today tickets go on sale today for Eric Church and Brad Paisley performing at ‘A Tribute To ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons’ at the Opry May 16. Also today Eric Church’s ‘Soul’ is out so is Justin Moore’s ‘Straight Outta the Country’ and you can also preorder Blake Shelton’s ‘Body Language.’

Carrie Underwood's making us wait & Maren Morris comes back to her Texas roots

A few days ago Carrie Underwood said something exciting was coming yesterday. When nothing happened Carrie posted we’d have to wait “a little longer.”

Before last weekend ACMs, Blake Shelton popped in to his Nashville and Orlando Ole Red bars for a surprise performance. Blake also said he’d continue paying his employees as he’s done the entire pandemic. Back in 2017, he was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive and Blake says he keeps that issue in the bathroom and looks at it often.

Maren Morris says her next record’s halfway done. She calls it an uplifting record that’s come back to the Texas rootsy style she grew up in. Maren also says it has Americana elements and is fun and energetic.

Finally - Eric Church and his wife were watching Elton John’s biopic, ‘Rocketman’ when a scene gave him the idea for his song ‘Rock & Roll Found Me.’ It’s on the third of his album trio, ‘Soul.’ Elton was dressed in a costume at a meeting and talked about how rock and roll found him. Eric immediately went to the kitchen and wrote the song.

Keith Urban has a new tattoo & Tim McGraw loves hog fish

Last weekend Tim McGraw got some hog fish while diving. They’re hard to catch as they live in deep water so Tim normally spears them free diving at 44 feet. Most every fish photo he posts is a hog fish and now I know why. It’s is as rich as scallops and it just melts in your mouth.

At Sunday’s ACMs, Keith Urban showed off a new tattoo on his right hand. The same hand he has a bracelet tattoo with the initials 'NMK' for Nicole Mary Kidman. I also hear Keith just got a boating license. He had one 10 years ago but let it lapse and said Covid gave him idle time to get a new one. A few years ago, Keith and the family were in Australia on a huge yacht they rented for $3,500 an hour. But there was a 4-hour minimum so it cost them $14,000 for the afternoon.

Finally - Eric Church, Brad Paisley, Travis Tritt and more will perform at ‘A Tribute To ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons.’ It’ll be live at the Opry May 16 and all proceeds go to charity. Tickets go on sale Friday.

Luke Bryan’s back on Idol after recovering from COVID. He said he had a rough go of it for a while tho. The same time Luke wasn’t on, contestant Wyatt Pike suddenly left. The rumor started that Wyatt punched Luke during an argument, giving him a black eye so that’s why Luke hasn’t been on the show. His wife Caroline confirms his reason for being off the show was Covid.

On the ACM Awards last night...& Keith Urban’s wife scores a big role

On the ACM Awards last night Entertainer of the Year was Luke Bryan. 

Female artist Maren Morris also won Song of the Year for ‘The Bones.’ 

The Male artist was Thomas Rhett. Thomas Rhett confessed Dierks Bentley was cracking him up as he took the stage to accept his Male Artist trophy, though he declined to say exactly what Dierks had said. 

Duo was Dan + Shay and when they performed there was an audio/video sync issue. 

Group winner went to Old Dominion.

Blake Shelton said he’d lose weight for his wedding and last night I could tell he really has. I also hear due to how much trouble Blake’s gotten in with his tweets, his team now handles most of his Twitter activity. Blake says Reba's even been hard on him about it.

The Trisha Yearwood Pet Collection will be available today. It includes dog treats, beds, collars and more. Her rescues inspired the line so the dog bedding’s machine washable.

Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream only made 10,000 pints of Dolly Parton’s Strawberry Pretzel Pie ice cream. They’re now going for upwards of $1,000 on eBay. That seller claimed 80% of the proceeds would go to Dolly’s Imagination Library.

Finally - Keith Urban will never display any awards saying, “I could never create with that stuff all over the walls, the expectation would cripple me.”

Brad Paisley saves his sons fish & Gabby Barrett wins an early ACM

Looking back on his career, Blake Shelton said he would have told his younger self two things; get more rest and the “mullet's not as cool as you think it is.” These days Blake calls himself a “slow slug," who’s lucky to have a job where he gets to sit in a red chair for a living.

When Brad Paisley noticed his son Jasper's pufferfish struggling, he had to help. A puffer’s beak can grow so long they can't eat, so Brad watched YouTube videos to find out how to fix that. He put clove oil in the tank to make the fish go to sleep, then Brad trimmed its beak with fingernail clippers and the fish survived. Brad and his wife are in People magazine out today.

Luke Bryan’s deluxe version of ‘Born Here, Live Here, Die Here’ is out today with six new songs.

Finally – two ACM Awards were just handed out. The New Female Artist of the Year is Gabby Barrett and the New Male is Jimmie Allen.

Luke Bryan’s on Jimmy Kimmel tonight & Dolly Parton: A MusiCares Tribute premieres tonight on Netflix

Luke Bryan’s on Jimmy Kimmel tonight. Yesterday his wife bought kombucha at the store. It’s a fermented tea. When she got to the car, she opened it and it exploded all over her face. It went up her nose and got on her shorts. Caroline said a cop saw the whole thing and was cracking up.

Jon Pardi’s wife had to have cows, so he got her some for Christmas. Yesterday she had to have goats so he went and got two. He posted a video wrangling them as they’d already escaped.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were spotted at Market Hill and the Marburger Farm Antique Show in Round Top Texas this week. They also had dinner at Lulu’s. They serve Italian food and I’ve heard it’s known for being quite a romantic place.

Finally - Dolly Parton: A MusiCares Tribute premieres tonight on Netflix. Honoring her are Willie Nelson, Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton & more. Tennessee lawmakers passed a bill Monday to make Dolly's version of "Amazing Grace" a state song. The vote was 91-1.

Michael Ray loves his Instant Pot & why Garth bows to Trisha

Performers for the ACM Awards April 18 have been finalized. They include Kane Brown, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town and Maren Morris.

Michael Ray says his favorite kitchen appliance is the Instant Pot his bus driver gave him. He calls it the new Crock Pot after it went away for a while and did some work on itself.

Carrie Underwood says when she doesn’t work out, her attitude is noticeable to her husband who will tell her to go take a run. If she could dump one thing from her routine, it’s burpees. That’s a jump, squat, plank and pushup all done at the same time and Carrie hates them!

Finally - when Garth sings with his wife, he always bows to her afterward. He says it’s because Trisha joked years ago that he had to. Garth says he still does it out of respect for her talent.

Dustin Lynch still headlining in Las Vegas & Jon Pardi broke ground Sunday

Jon Pardi broke ground Sunday on a massive new pond. It looks so big, I thought he was working on a garden. This will be his 2nd pond.

Keith Urban will be on Taylor Swift’s upcoming album, ‘Fearless.’ He’ll duet on one song and sing harmonies on another. They’ve been friends since 2009 when Taylor was Keith’s opening act. Maren Morris will also do background vocals on a tune.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani both think they’ve gone as far as they can career wise with touring and TV. Blake says, “hopefully at some point we get a chance to live life and we’re both ready for that. The older I get, the more I’m turning into a hermit and passing on several things.”

Finally - Dustin Lynch says despite cancellations due to Covid, he's still headlining in Las Vegas this summer. The Dustin Lynch Pool Situation is June 3-6 at the Imperial Palace. Dustin says he may even be able to sneak in some more tickets soon even tho it’s sold out. The event will also feature Jordan Davis and HARDY.

Friday, April 2, 2021

Eric Church wants to have a fall arena tour so he just got the Covid vaccine and wants fans to do the same. Eric promises if new protocols make for an extra expense in some cities, he’ll try as much as possible to absorb that cost.

Carrie Underwood has a live concert Sunday morning at 11 CT from the Ryman. She’ll be singing songs from her new album, ‘My Savior’ and the show’s free on her Facebook page.

Miranda Lambert and her husband like to take their Airstream on mini vacations. She calls it the “Freedom Wagon” cause it gets her out and gives her the travel fix she’s been missing since she can’t be on the road right now.

Sunday night, Jason Aldean & Jimmie Allen each perform two duets with American Idol contestants.

Finally – Chris Janson turns 35 today.

Thursday, April 1, 2021

Garth has a big announcement today & Blake and Gwen get married this summer

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani will get married this summer Blake said yesterday. If they wait until fall, he’s back doing the 'The Voice' and Blake wants plenty of time before and after the wedding. He also has a new line of hard seltzer out soon. Blake says they taste like liquid sunshine and come in lemonade, lime, strawberry and peach.

Brian Kelley from Florida Georgia Line will release solo music this spring with an album later this year. He calls the music ‘Beach Cowboy,’ but this doesn’t mean he’s stepping away from band mate Tyler Hubbard.

Garth has a big announcement today. I’m guessing it has to do with a new tour.

Carrie Underwood’s on the list of People magazine's Beauties of the Year. Their Beautiful issue is out Friday.

Finally - happy 35th birthday today to Hillary Scott of Lady A.
