Music City Minute: Garth Brooks, Lee Brice, & Eric Church

Garth Brooks used to make news for retiring, and un-retiring… but those days are over. Completely. He says, "I can tell you my retiring days are behind me. I can tell you, you're gonna have to throw me out now."

Garth also wants you to know that artists who whine about touring are full of it. He also says, "If anybody sits up here and tells you that touring is working for a living, they're lying to you. It's the sweetest, easiest thing I've ever got to do."

 

Lee Brice has a new album coming out November 3rd and he wanted the sound to be real and full of emotion, and he felt the best way to do that would be to simplify.

Lee says, "There are no computer tricks, no artificial sounds. I set out to make an album that sounded like an album. An album that specifically had groove to it, without tricks. 

"I wanted it to be me and my players and my actual drummer and my bass player, playing instruments, period." 

He's very serious about this. Lee says, "Even when it sounds like a computer, I promise, we figured out a way to make that sound, to me, being real was everything. I wanted to put a little piece of everything about me, everything I am on this record." Lee will be back at Cowboys December 2nd, this is his current heartfelt single “Boy”:

 

Eric Church makes music for his fans, not the critics. So it makes no sense to him that the press gets their hands on the music before the people who are going to buy it. He says, "When you make a new record, critics are the mouthpiece to say, 'Hey, go buy this record'… and that's so backwards to me. Your biggest mouthpiece is the fans." If you’re a big fan of Eric Church don’t forget his concert special is tonight starting at 7 on the Audience Music Network – DirectTV Channel 239 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 1114!

Wife of Fallen Soldier Receives Help From His Comrades For Gender Reveal

Army Spc. Christopher Michael Harris, 25, of Jackson Springs, North Carolina, was killed while deployed in Afghanistan back in August. Before Harris passed away, his wife, Britt Harris, discovered she was pregnant with the couple’s first child. She told him a week before she received news that her husband was killed serving our country.

Harris was a member of the 2nd Battalion, 504th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division based in North Carolina according to the Department of Defense.

Britt Harris didn’t want the U.S. Army and Harris’s comrades to feel left out as they were still mourning their fallen friend and soldier. Harris got to work by contacting the Army and shipped confetti poppers to Afghanistan for the soldiers. In a video posted to YouTube, the troops gathered in front of an American flag with the poppers in hand, check out the reveal below!

Congratulations to the Harris Family and a HUGE THANK YOU to those who serve for their sacrifices.

Music City Minute: Chris Janson, Keith Urban, & Kip Moore

The Grand Ole Opry is known for bringing country stars together for one-of-a-kind performances, and one of those collaborations took place on Tuesday night's show. During the show, Keith Urban took the Opry stage with Chris Janson to perform a rendition of the '90s classic "Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)," originally recorded by John Michael Montgomery and it was awesome:

 

Speaking of Keith Urban, he will share his music industry knowledge at SXSW next year. Keith is booked as a featured speaker for the 2018 conference in Austin, Texas next March.

You might remember Garth Brooks gave a keynote speech at SXSW in 2017, and kicked off his visit to Texas with a press conference, where he debuted a new single and announced that he’d close out SXSW 2017 with a free show. His performance at SXSW’s outdoor riverfront stage marked his first official Austin concert in 20-plus years.

SXSW featured speakers are generally storytellers, creative visionaries and change-makers in the industry — The 2018 SXSW Conference and Festival runs from March 9-18. Industry professionals and music fans can register to attend beginning Oct. 20th.

Keith Urban has not revealed whether he’ll perform while in Austin next year.

Somethin’ you may not know about Kip Moore is that he’s sold more than 4 million albums, racked up a No. 1 hit (“Somethin’ About a Truck”) and five more Top 20 singles, and headlined sold-out shows all over the country. The surprising part is Kip Moore has only has two CMA nominations to his name over his career.

That may not seem like an impressive or fair number, taking into account his other stats. However, this doesn’t pose a problem for Kip. He says he’s simply too busy making music for his fans to worry much about accolades.

Kip says, “I think that anybody, any artist, would find joy in being recognized, and I think that if I was up for something or to win something, of course it would be humbling, and I would be thankful, But it doesn’t dictate how I feel. It’s not going to break me one way or the other.”

Music City Minute: Lauren Alaina, Chris Stapleton, Y100 8 Man Jam

This is so cute! So, Lauren Alaina’s song Road Less Traveled, is actually featured in a movie with the same name. The movie is set to make its debut on CMT next month, on November 10th at 8 PM. Based off the song, the film follows a Country singer named Charlotte (played by Lauren) who returns home to Tennessee a week before her wedding and runs into an old high school sweetheart. Check out the trailer for the movie:

 

Like a lot of artists Chris Stapleton is mourning the loss of Tom Petty, who died on Oct. 2nd. At a concert on Oct. 5 in Moline, Ill. Chris said “I had the opportunity to play with Tom Petty earlier this year and the last thing he said to me was, ‘I hope we get an opportunity to do this again, and I left there thinking that we might. And I sure am sad that I won’t get to.”

Chris Stapleton paid tribute to Tom Petty with a cover of “Learning to Fly.” 

 

We completed the lineup for the Y100 Bud Light 8 Man Jam yesterday and we can’t wait for the show November 15th! The performers are Easton Corbin, Midland, LoCash, Justin Moore, Luke Combs, Josh Turner, Cody Johnson, and Brett Young!

Music City Minute: Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan, & Blake Shelton 

Before launching their Las Vegas residency at the Venetian Theatre on Friday Rascal Flatts took the stage to pay tribute to the shooting victims at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on October 1. The trio's Jay DeMarcus began the address by speaking about the confusion, frustration, sadness, pain and anger that everyone's dealing with right now after this tragedy. 

While making stops over the weekend on his"2017 Farm Tour," Luke Bryan took some time out his shows to pay tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. 

During his tour stop in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on Thursday, Luke asked his fans to pray for those affected by the shooting and also made a plea for everyone to be cognizant of other people's mental health issues as a way to possibly avoid something terrible happening in the future. Luke said, "Let’s think about being a better country, being better people. You see somebody that’s having trouble up here in their mind, let’s get to working on this stuff, y’all.” 

Blake Shelton has been a coach on “The Voice” since 2011. So, it’s safe to say that he knows a thing or two about judging on reality competition shows. When he learned his good friend Luke Bryan got asked to judge on the upcoming “American Idol” – he didn’t hold back with his thoughts. 

Music City Minute: Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, + Tim & Faith News!  

Jason Aldean and his band have kept a low profile in the aftermath of the October 1st shooting during his headline set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. But over the weekend they made a surprise appearance on “Saturday Night Live,” opening the show with a few words from Jason and a performance of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” Petty died as a result of a heart attack the day after the festival shooting.

 

Luke Bryan appeared on Good Morning America on Friday to announce the release of his sixth studio album, called What Makes You Country. There’s 15 songs on the album and it’ll be out December 8th. It will feature seven songs co-written by Luke, including, "Light It Up." Luke says, "It is important to me to continue to push myself to grow on all levels and I feel like we did that on this project. Making and performing music never gets old and I can honestly say I am having the time of my life." 

 

While celebrating their 21st wedding anniversary on Friday Tim McGraw and Faith Hill took some time to announce the release of their first album together, The Rest of Our Life, out November 17. In addition to revealing their new duet project on Friday, they also put out their new song "The Rest of Our Life" and something we just found out, pop star Ed Sheeran actually served as a co-writer on the song. 

Music City Minute: Eric Church + Tim & Faith Both Have New Songs!

(CMT.com) You can see it every night that they’re on stage. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are still spontaneously combusting, 21 years after they got married.

Quick history: The two country stars met when Faith was opening for Tim on the Spontaneous Combustion tour, they fell in love, and they got hitched on Oct. 6, 1996.

So now that their 21st wedding anniversary is today it sounds like they’re definitely not planning to give each other the traditional gift of brass for this one. Instead they’re releasing a BRAND NEW song today called “The Rest Of Our Life” and it sounds like this could be a potential first dance song at weddings!

Faith says when it comes to anniversary gifts, “He’s good. He doesn’t need to get me anything. Honestly, do you, baby? He’s good at giving gifts and making surprises.” Plus, she doesn’t have to exercise with Tim, which she admitted is the best gift ever. “That’s amazing. I get to do that four-hour workout with you? No, thank you.”

And Tim doesn’t need an expensive gift, because he gets a priceless one every night. He says, “For me, it’s hearing her sing every night — that’s the best part about (the tour). To see her up on stage, having a great time and just belting it out? I mean, I always say it: when I’m on stage with her, it’s like NASCAR trying to keep up with an Indy car. She’s just that good. So, to watch her sing and see what she does is pretty inspiring.” Lucky for him, they will be performing in Houston tonight.

But when their current tour is over, they’re both thinking about going their separate ways. Not permanently, but just in an absence-makes-the-heart-grow-fonder kind of way.

Tim said, “I’m going to go on a man vacation after this is over.” 

And Faith said, “I need a girl vacation, actually.”

Those getaways will have to wait until after Oct. 27, which is the night of their last scheduled stop on the Soul2Soul World Tour.

 

Eric Church was the headliner at Friday's Route 91 Fest in Vegas… and he's still reeling from the tragedy that happened two nights later. He talked about it during his show on Wednesday at the Grand Ole Opry. 

He remembered going into the Vegas crowd to shake everybody's hand. Eric said, "I went all the way down the right side. Came back up the left side. Smiling faces. Hands in the air. Pictures being taken. I told them, 'Thank you for coming.'"

He talked about after the shooting when he saw Anderson Cooper interview a woman named Heather Melton. Her husband Sonny died while shielding her from the bullets. They went to the festival because Eric was her husband's favorite artist.

She said they were also looking forward to going to the Opry the next night. Eric then pointed to two seats that were left empty in their honor. He said, "The reason I'm here tonight is because of Heather and Sonny."

He said the shooting "broke something" inside of him and the only way to fix that is through music. So, he wrote a new song called "Why Not Me” it’s very very emotional.

 

Music City Minute: ACL Refunds, Luke Bryan, Tim & Faith

Austin City Limits Music Festival organizers are offering refunds to fans who feel unsafe to attend in light of recent events. The festival made the announcement following the tragic shooting in Vegas on Sunday.

ACL 2017 runs this weekend Oct. 6-8 and Oct. 13-15.

The festival draws more than 450,000 people each year, so far there have been only two requests for refunds as of Tuesday. 

Country stars set to perform include Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne, Devin Dawson, and Tucker Bethard. 

 

Even before the mass shooting in Las Vegas, ACL Festival had ensured that security would be tight, with safety a top priority. Interim police Chief Brian Manley says that police officers will have a strong presence at the festival. Umbrellas, cigarettes and blow-up furniture are banned from the event this year. There will also be restrictions on what size bag can be brought in, and fans should anticipate pat-downs and bag searches when they approach the gate.

Luke Bryan was on Good Morning America yesterday to talk about being a judge on American Idol, but before that he talked about the Las Vegas shooting and how he talked to Jason Aldean after it happened: 

"It was one of the most heartbreaking days of my life, and for this country, too,” said Luke, in part. “I talked to Jason Aldean very early that morning, and hearing one of your best friends shaken up like that, knowing they’ll never be able to un-see these things. I don't know you get lumps and you get nauseated. And Katy, I and Lionel, we talked about it. There’s just gotta be something that we can do, from the mental health issue to all of the issues that are causing these things."

Tim and Faith will be at the AT&T Center tonight! We played a game of “Rapid Fire” with them this morning and got to ask some interesting questions. We asked Tim what his favorite outfit to see Faith in is, and asked Faith about what’s on her honey-do list for Tim plus other fun questions, you can hear the full interview here.

Music City Minute: The Voice, Taylor Swift, & Jason Aldean

The Voice Blind Auditions continued last night with Round 4 and another contestant shocked the judges! 18-year-old Sophia Bollman, a recent high school graduate who loves rock music, but chose to exercise her purest pop chops on Kelly Clarkson “Invincible.” It took a few minutes for anyone to turn their chairs, but finally Blake and Miley made the move.

Taylor Swift demonstrated a true act of kindness in the wake of the tragedy in Las Vegas. After learning that one of the officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Foothill Community Police Station was shot at Route 91 Harvest Festival on Oct. 1, Swift decided to bring the department a little joy, sending multiple flower arrangements to the office. Kimberlee Binder, an intel analyst for the LAPD, turned to Instagram to share the singer’s act of kindness:

 

Jason Aldean is calling for unity following Sunday's deadly shooting during his set at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. In his second statement released since the tragedy, Jason wrote on Instagram about the mix of emotions that have been running through his head since a gunman took the lives of 59 people and injured more than 500 others. Jason spoke about the kind of world we're living in today, writing, "Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see. This world is becoming the kind of place I am afraid to raise my children in." Jason then wrote about how coming together is the only way to move forward in this country. He said, "At the end of the day we aren't Democrats or Republicans, Whites or Blacks, Men or Women. We are all humans and we are all Americans and it's time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE!"
