Looks like Miranda Lambert made this pilgrimage to see her boyfriend, Anderson East

Country music singer Miranda Lambert and her rhythm and blues beau, Anderson East, have been pretty tight-lipped about their romance so far. But, in case you were wondering, they’re still going strong.

And, seeing them so happy together is very inspiring.

On Sept. 25, Anderson performed at the Pilgrimage Music and Cultural Festival in Franklin, Tennessee. “The Tennessean” reports that Miranda was on hand during the event and was full of moral support for her man.

The 32-year-old “Vice” singer cheered Anderson on from the grounds of the festival’s “Midnight Sun” stage, while he jammed out a set of songs off of his 2015 “Delilah” album.

And if the photo posted on this Instagram page dedicated to Miranda fans is any indication, the blond-haired bombshell must’ve had a good time!

As you can see in the picture above, Miranda is full of smiles. She appears to have a carefree attitude holding up a red solo cup and rocking a pair of shades with a stylish headband.

The image comes just weeks after Miranda was forced to cut her Keeper of the Flame Tour short in order to be on vocal rest. So, she seems to be making a swift recovery.

Miranda’s relationship with Anderson is her first since splitting from ex-husband Blake Shelton. On Nov. 18, she will release her sixth studio album, “The Weight of These Wings.”

Blake Shelton was on the edge of his seat to see this video that has touched millions

Blake Shelton was expecting the Country Music Association to do something crazy to celebrate the upcoming 50th Annual CMA Awards, but he never imagined they’d pull off something as big as “Forever Country.”

Along with Blake, the all-star medley features appearances from Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Brooks & Dunn and many, many more stars. Blake said yes to the project from the very beginning.

He says, “I really didn’t even ask what the song was. I just said, ‘Sure, I’d love to be a part of whatever you guys are doing.’ This is one of those things that you’re just honored to be in all of these other artists’ company and be a part of a project like this.”

Once he got to the studio, Blake found out “Forever Country” was a mashup of Willie’s “On the Road Again,” Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” and “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by John Denver.

Blake says, “I was like, ‘What the? How is this gonna work? There’s no way these songs are going to work together!’ Should have known [producer] Shane McAnally is brilliant and came up with this really cool mashup.”

Before the “Forever Country” video premiered and racked up millions of views, Blake couldn’t contain his excitement about seeing how all the different artists’ individual parts fit together.

He says, “I think it’s one of these things that everybody’s gonna remember. And everybody’s gonna have a moment in this song, as listeners, or as artists as a part of it, that they really connect to. It’s crazy. It’s magical.”

Here’s hoping all of those artists are on hand to perform “Forever Country” live on the 50th Annual CMA Awards, coming up Wednesday, Nov. 2 on ABC.

Drone to the face doesn't stop Bone Thugs-n-Harmony show

The hip-hop rhythms of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are too fierce to be stopped. Even by a drone to the face.

The group was performing at the High Life Music Festival in Victorville on Sunday when a drone buzzed up and smacked rapper Stanley "Flesh-N-Bone" Howse in the face. He winced and grabbed his head, but he and the rest of the group didn't stop the show or even the song.

It's not clear whether a fan, the band or someone connected to the festival had launched the drone, which was about 2 feet wide.

Messages left with police and representatives for the group weren't immediately returned.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, whose other members are Bizzy Bone, Wish Bone, Layzie Bone and Krayzie Bone, began in Cleveland in 1993 and is known for mixing singing with rap.

Scotty McCreery put his signature voice all over this new, surprising cover choice

Scotty McCreery is just full of surprises.

During his show in Verona, New York on Sept. 24, Scotty added a brand-new cover song to his set, The Fray’s “Over My Head (Cable Car).” While there’s still some country instrumentation in his arrangement, we’ve never heard Scotty put such a rock edge on his vocals. You can especially hear it 20 seconds into this clip of the performance.

We’ve heard Scotty is working on new music these days, so it’s pretty exciting to think he’s exploring new, different sounds for that project.

As for this particular cover choice, we know Scotty has been on the hunt for a good song to sing from the 2000s. He even sent out a tweet recently asking for song suggestions.

Rain delay at the course… Thinking bout covering a big 2000′s tune in the shows coming up. What song should it be yall? — Scotty McCreery (@ScottyMcCreery) September 19, 2016

The suggestions varied from Britney Spears hits to “Stacy’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne. We’ll keep you posted if Scotty takes any of those wacky fan suggestions in the near future.

Life-size bronze tribute statue to Glenn Frey now in Winslow

A life-size bronze tribute statue to the late singer-songwriter Glenn Frey of the Eagles has been installed in the "Standing On The Corner" park in Winslow, Arizona.

It joins the statue that many feel looks like Jackson Browne that has stood in the city's downtown area since the late 1990s.

Browne and Frey co-wrote the Eagles' song "Take it Easy" in 1972 that included the lyric "standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona."

Two morning radio personalities from Phoenix classic rock station KSLX — Mark Devine and Paul "NeanderPaul" Marshall — helped fund the $22,000 Frey statue, along with the Standing on The Corner Foundation and the City of Winslow.

Last weekend's installation ceremony kicked off Winslow's annual "Standing On The Corner" music festival.

Devine said in a statement that after Frey died in January at age 67, "we thought a statue would be a great way to pay tribute to his everlasting impact on Arizona's history."

Marshall said "the song has two writers, so we thought adding another statue that will last forever would be perfect."

The statue depicts a long-haired, mustachioed Frey — the way he looked in the early 1970s.

The other statue that resembles Browne is of a man with boots, jeans and a guitar. In front of it is a Route 66 shield painted on the road and behind him is a mural with a woman looking in his direction — a visual reference to the lines in the song: "Well, I'm standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona, such a fine sight to see. It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford slowin' down to take a look at me."

The origins of the song date back to the early 1970s when Frey was living below Browne in a $60-a-month Los Angeles apartment.

Frey said in a 2003 interview that Browne came up with the Winslow line after getting stranded there once but was stumped on how to finish the verse. Frey suggested the flatbed Ford line, and it clicked.

Shops around the Winslow park display Eagles tour posters and sell T-shirts, magnets and mugs depicting the hit song and its lyrics.

Music director at Catholic church fired for gay marriage

A music director at a Catholic church in Rhode Island says he has been fired because he married a man.

Michael Templeton tells The Providence Journal (http://bit.ly/2dx6gPb ) he was fired last week from his post at the Church of St. Mary in Providence. He says the Rev. Francesco Francese and a representative of the Diocese of Providence told him he needed to leave because of his 2015 marriage to his partner of five years.

Bishop Thomas Tobin says someone who holds a ministerial position in the church is expected to live in a way that's consistent with church teachings and the church "had no choice but to respond."

The newspaper reported 30 members of the parish protested by singing over a prayer during Sunday's service.
