It was a long weekend for Kenny Chesney he revealed that his home on the island of St John in U.S. Virgin Islands was destroyed during Hurricane Irma. Kenny says more than 20 people and 10 dogs were sheltering in his home at the time the hurricane hit, but thankfully everyone is okay. He says they thought that since the home was made out of structurally sound materials like stone and concrete it would make a good shelter, but the strength of Irma was too great. Despite the home's windows being tested to withstand winds of up to 200 miles per hour, Kenny says all of them were blown out in the storm. 

 

After hearing about the destruction caused by Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean islands, Kenny Chesney immediately started a foundation where people can donate funds to help those affected by the storm. The new foundation will be called "Love For Love City," a reference to the nickname of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands where he owns a home. Kenny promised that a "musical connection" to help raise money was also in the works. 

New Music Friday!!

Thank GOODNESS it’s Friday and thank GOODNESS for some new country!! Thomas Rhett, Kip Moore, Dustin Lynch, AND Blake Shelton all released new music today. Blake Shelton’s new single “I’ll Name The Dogs” doesn’t come off of a new album while Thomas, Dustin, and Kip all have singles out now from their new albums. Thomas Rhett’s latest single “Unforgettable” comes off his album ‘Life Changes’, Kip Moore’s “More Girls Like You” comes from his ‘Slowheart’ album, and Dustin Lynch’s “Small Town Boy” comes off of his album ‘Current Mood’.

You can check out two songs from Kip Moore’s ‘Slowheart’ below!

Dustin Lynch fans will easily spot “Small Town Boy” on his new album ‘Current Mood’ but Dustin keeps the party alive on his album with songs like “I Wish You Were Beer”.

Some controversy sparked when fans of Thomas Rhett discovered the song “Leave Right Now” closely resembles an electronic dance track somewhat inspired by the Chainsmokers. Rhett said of the criticism:

“Anytime you go to a country music concert, everyone is playing hip-hop or EDM as their pre-roll. And I got tired of my intro being way cooler than my show. So why not make one of mine that can be my intro that's as cool as my show?"

If it’s any consolation for some of the disgruntled hardcore country fans, you’ll be able to find a duet of Thomas Rhett and his dad, Rhett Akins on a song called “Drink A Little Beer”. Many fans will immediately recognize Thomas Rhett’s number one single “Craving You” featuring Maren Morris on the album!

While Blake Shelton hasn’t released a new album he did release a six song EP ‘Blake Shelton (Live)’ two weeks ago. Blake’s latest single “I’ll Name The Dogs” has sparked some theories as to whether or not Shelton’s single is a jab at ex-wife Miranda Lambert. What do you think?

Jason Aldean: "Carefree. I was there to play sports. I didn't have a care in the world."

Maddie Marlow of Maddie & Tae: "Social butterfly. I was in everything that I could possibly be."

CMA Nominees Announced, Jason Aldean’s Nursery Photo, & Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Tribute Video!

The nominees we’re announced yesterday for the CMA awards November 8th! Topping the list was Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert each with 5! Little Big Town is right behind them with four nominations, and that has people talking because Taylor Swift got her first nomination in three years because she wrote their song “Better Man”.

As far as snubs, Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean got completely shut out with no nominations. Which is crazy because they were everywhere last year! And of course we had to point out, our station KCYY is nominated for station of the year! So thank you everyone for listening, keep your fingers crossed and we’ll find out who wins all of the awards November 8th when Brad and Carrie host for the 10th year in a row! 

 

Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany are getting ready for the baby! Over the weekend the couple shared a picture of their gorgeous nursery that has giant light up letters spelling out Memphis, which I think is just the cutest country name ever. Jason also recently shared a sonogram photo of his son on Instagram, showing the little guy making an inappropriate hand gesture. And Jason seems to be pretty happy about his baby's apparent bird flipping, he said, "This is how you know ur kid is gonna be a badass!!! #johnnycashspirit #liloutlaw"

 

An update on Miranda Lambert and her MuttNation charity, they are up to rescuing or relocating over 200 dogs that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. They moved dogs from overloaded shelters in Texas to Oklahoma, so that dogs misplaced by the hurricane could stay closer to where they'd been found. She also posted a video tribute to her team.

Chris Young Cries, Miranda Lambert Helps Lost Harvey Dogs, And New Music From Eric Church! 

Chris Young’s been a busy guy lately he donated $100,000 to help with Hurricane Harvey relief, and Tuesday night he became the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry. Vince Gill surprised Chris with an invitation to join during what Chris though was a regular performance and celebration of their song together “Sober Saturday Night”. Since it was a surprise to Chris, naturally he got super emotional.

Speaking of Hurricane Harvey Miranda Lambert and her MuttNation team have been doing amazing work rescuing animals displaced by Harvey. They took a truck of 70 lost dogs and took them to an Oklahoma shelter, and turned around to head back and pick up more. You can contribute to Miranda’s efforts at Muttnation.com  

Eric Church is kind of known for being unpredictable and surprising his fans, well yesterday Eric posted a video that shows concerts clips along with an announcement that read, “61 Days in Church.” There was then another at the end saying, “Relive the Holdin’ My Own Tour available Friday.”

Now everyone’s speculating what this all means… they’re saying he’s going to release a total of 122 live songs through Apple Music but not all at once. The first 30 will be available for streaming tomorrow, and he’ll release the rest over the next two weeks. Eventually, September 15th he’ll release the songs on other streaming platforms, there won’t actually be a physical release of the album. And of course you’ll be able to see some of these songs live in Austin next Thursday when he performs with Elle King at the Austin 360 Amphitheater.

Speaking of Florida Georgia Line the guys will be on the Today show Friday morning for a beach bash! Catch them performing their new single “Smooth” in the 10 AM hour to kick off Labor Day weekend! 

Now we know the band Coldplay isn’t country, but the guys in the band grew up loving country music, and have played a lot of shows in Texas. The guys of Coldplay actually had to cancel their Friday show in Houston because of Harvey. So, at their show Monday night in Miami they stopped to play a song they wrote for the people in Houston, and the lyrics will give you chills.
