Music City Minute: Jana Kramer, Garth Brooks, Thomas Rhett 

In an Instagram post on Saturday, Jana Kramer revealed that she suffered a miscarriage… and it's not her first. She posted a photo of herself holding an ultrasound and wrote, "Today, I am one for three."

Sadly, the "one for three" means she's had two miscarriages. Her daughter Jolie Rae is 22 months old.

Here's some of what she wrote, "I debated posting this for the exact reason why it's a silent struggle. I don't want 'I'm sorry' or sympathy. I just don't want to feel alone, and I know I'm not. This unfortunately isn't my first loss.

"When I first found out I was pregnant I wanted to shout it from the rooftop but I know for reasons like this we have to wait. So because we don't tell many, we have to suffer silently… and suffering silently was my thing in the past, but it's not now."

She also offered support to other women who have miscarried, saying she's there if they need a safe place. And she shared a post from her friend's blog that she turned to for inspiration. Go to the blog. 

 

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have been married since 2005 -- so that makes yesterday their 12th anniversary. However, as most fans know, they’ve been friends for even longer than that. The pair sang together on countless Garth hits, and were frequent touring partners while both were married to other people and Garth just continues to gush over Trisha after all these years saying, “She’s that funny, she’s that many different women, she never gets old, if you’ve been around her she’s entertaining as can be, she’s unbelievable just to stare at, and you just want to be in the same room with her, you may not be doing the same thing, but as long as you’re breathing the same air, you’re good.”

 

If you're in need of a little sweetening up this Christmas season, Thomas Rhett just posted a photo that would melt the heart of any Grinch.

The proud dad showed off his younger daughter Ada James, all bundled up against the December chill in a polka-dot snowsuit and too-cute-for-words knitted lambs-ear hat. Fans, couldn't resist gushing over the precious moment, with many remarking about the striking resemblance between Ada and her father.

Music City Minute: Luke Bryan, Walker Hayes, Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, & Chris Young! 

It’s album release day! Today's new releases include the sixth album from Luke Bryan and the debut album from Walker Hayes. Luke's is called "What Makes You Country", and it includes his song "Light It Up". Walker's is titled "Boom", and it features his single, "You Broke Up With Me". Luke is obviously country, especially with that accent, but some asked what actually makes you country and he said, “the way I grew up saying yes ma’am and no ma’am, being from a small town Leesburg, Georgia, and just being outdoors hunting and fishing.”

Carrie Underwood may be approaching her third Christmas with son Isaiah, but up until this week, there was still one big holiday activity that the family hadn't done. On Wednesday night, Carrie shared picture of Isaiah putting frosting on a sweet Christmas tree cookie, writing in the caption, "I actually don't think I've ever made Christmas cookies before but this will definitely be a new tradition in the Fisher household!" Turns out Isaiah is pretty fond of his new family tradition, with Carrie saying, "Newsflash: Isaiah likes frosting (shocker)!" 

 

Speaking of Christmas, a lot of us turn on some Alan Jackson to get in the holiday spirit well if you were ever wondering what he listens to the oldies, he says, "When we listen to Christmas songs, we put on the old ones that you grew up with . . . from Gene Autry to Nat King Cole, and all the guys [like] Bing Crosby and everybody."

 

It’s an exciting day for Chris Young! His current single, "Losing Sleep," has just been certified Gold! What that means is, the song reached a milestone mark for moving 500,000 units of combined sales and streams, giving Chris his 17th career Gold or Platinum certification.

Speaking of Brett’s, Brett Young was just here for our Y100 Bud Light 8 Man Jam and I found this tidbit about him and his favorite food interesting. He says whenever he’s out on the road he loves to go to Buffalo Wild Wings.

"I am completely obsessed and here's why. I travel so much that it's nice to have things that feel familiar and the inside of a Buffalo Wild Wings they're all the same. So, there's something about no matter what city I'm in if I walk into it I'm like, 'Oh this is just Buffalo Wild Wings,' I feel like I'm home. Not to mention the food's really good and there's always sports on. I'm a fan. I'll be their brand ambassador. I'm in."

The guys of Midland were just here for the Y100 Bud Light 8 Man Jam and they’re coming back from the rodeo well it turns out there tends to be a lot of women throwing various things on stage for the guys:

(Midland's Mark) "There is a particular bra that is commemorated and sitting on the bus. We had a crazy show at the California State Fair and we did have a bunch of bras and whatnot that were thrown on stage. And some girl, after the show, like grabbed Jess she goes, 'Um, excuse me. Uh, that bra that I threw at you, it's actually like brand new. I just wore it and it's really expensive. Can you find it and like get it back to me?' I was already wearing it on my head and was running off stage so she didn't get it back."

While walking the red carpet last Thursday night at the Billboard Women in Music Awards, Kelly Clarkson revealed some pretty terrifying news. When a reporter commented on how well Kelly’s life was going right now, she revealed that her home in Los Angeles had just been robbed the night before. Kelly said, "It was crazy, we got here and our whole house was like bashed in, it was crazy." When asked if anything of value was stolen, Kelly said the thief only took "materialistic things" they didn't care about, but added that the perpetrator actually went into their kid's room. Kelly then added that it's "a blessing" that they weren't in the house at the time of the robbery.

The new trek will mark the 20-year anniversary of Montgomery Gentry as a group as well as the emotional return to the stage for Eddie, who will be touring for the first time since the tragic death of his duo partner, Troy Gentry. They even once discussed what they'd do if the other one died first. He says, "We said to each other, 'Hey, we want Montgomery Gentry to keep going.'

Music City Minute: Midland, Jason Aldean, & Blake Shelton

It’s been a crazy year for the guys of Midland, they were just at our Y100 Bud Light 8 Man Jam and blew everyone away. Well turns out they were just as surprised as anyone when their song "Drinkin' Problem" picked up two Grammy nominations earlier this week. It's up for Best Country Song, and for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group.

They were asked what we might expect from their acceptance speech if they happen to win. Lead singer Mark, the tall guy with the brown hair, he said "It would be so emotional. Honestly we would just cry.

Bass player Cameron agreed, "Yeah, Mark would be crying. I'd have to shake him. We'd be hugging and crying and thanking everybody." We’ll keep our fingers crossed and find out if they win January 28th.

Jason Aldean is more than willing to lend his pregnant wife Brittany a hand to make her life easier. And with the birth of their son Memphis expected any day now, Brittany's growing baby bump is making it hard for her to do even some of the most basic tasks. Case in point: the picture Brittany recently shared on Instagram. The photo shows that Jason has now been assigned to shoe-tying duty for Brittany as she says she can no longer reach her feet. Little Memphis is due in December, so baby watch is now in full effect.

The home, which was once owned by Michael Jackson, also features a grand oak staircase as well as a private outdoor area and large kitchen.
