Music City Minute: Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton

Dierks Bentley had a lot of help from his friends on Sunday night as he opened his new Whiskey Row bar and restaurant in downtown Nashville. Dierks launched the new Nashville hot spot by welcoming several of his fellow stars to the stage to sing a few 90's country covers. The night included performances from Dierks, as well as Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett, Maren Morris, Jon Pardi, Brothers Osborne, Cole Swindell, Lauren Alaina, Maddie and Tae and more.


Carrie Underwood finally gave fans what they've been craving on Friday, she released her anthemic song, "The Champion," to the world. Carrie teamed up with rapper Ludacris for the new song, which will open NBC's Super Bowl 52 on February 4th with a video that was filmed last year. In addition to opening this year's big game, "The Champion" will also be incorporated into NBC's coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, which kick off on February 9 in South Korea.Carrie co-wrote "The Champion" last year with fellow songwriters Brett James, Chris DeStefano and Ludacris (Christopher Bridges), who Carrie personally asked to collaborate on the tune. Carrie says their main focus when writing the song was celebrating athletes at the top of their game, while also resonating with people in their everyday lives. Carrie says, "We hope the lyrics will inspire people to push themselves beyond their limits to conquer anything they are trying to accomplish or overcome. There's a champion in every single one of us!" Ludacris says, "It was a pleasure to collaborate with Carrie for this inspirational song."


Two years after making his debut on NBC's Saturday Night Live in 2016, Chris Stapleton is heading back to the show January 27th. He’ll join the host for that evening, Will Ferrell. 

Music City Minute: Tim & Faith, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett 

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have been named in a copyright lawsuit regarding the title track from their duets album, The Rest of Our Life. According to The Hollywood Reporter, two Australian songwriters -- Sean Carey and Beau Golden -- are suing Tim and Faith, along with the song's co-writers and their respective publishing companies, claiming that "The Rest of Our Life" is "blatant copying" of their 2014 song, "When I Found You." The lawsuit, which was filed in a New York federal court, seeks at least $5 million in actual damages, plus profits, a running royalty and attorney's fees.McGraw and Hill were named in the lawsuit because they're the artists who performed the song, which was written by Ed Sheeran, Amy Wadge, Johnny McDaid and Steve McCutcheon.



Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line and his wife Hayley welcome their little girl Olivia Rose into the world December 23rd, well it looks like they’re getting all settled in because they had an ADORABLE photo shoot of their little family of 4, including dog Harley. PEOPLE Country got the photos of the newest member of their little family!


We know that one of the biggest thing Thomas Rhett’s wife likes to be a part of is the 147 Million Orphans Charity which helps out Orphans in Uganda. That is where Lauren and Thomas met their sweet Willa Gray and adopted her from. Now that things have settled down a little bit in the Rhett household Lauren thought it was time to go back and give more of her time and love to the Orphanage.


Lauren recently shared a story on her Instagram on a little boy that she and her team helped named Frances. She captioned the photo with “So this is sweet little Frances. And if you scroll through these pics **WARNING some of them are hard to look at-but it was his reality** he was found by our @147millionorphans ground team in Masindi, Uganda. He is a total orphan, meaning no living relatives… and goes on to explain how they found him, and how he’s doing so great now. 

Music City Minute: Dierks Bentley, American Idol, & Cam 

Dierks Bentley shared some big news yesterday announcing the release of his ninth studio album, The Mountain, out in early 2018. Dierks revealed that the album was set in motion this past summer while surrounded by some of his musical heroes at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Telluride, Colorado. Dierks soon returned to the small mountain town for a retreat with his songwriter friends, where he said the writing process for the album came together quickly. The bulk of the album's songs, including the title track were written during the week of that retreat, which Dierks described as the most inspiring creative experience he's ever had.Dierks said, "Telluride just makes you want to reach for your guitar. We all went out there and got completely off the grid...out of our normal element and the grind that happens on Music Row and it was, from the very get-go, magic. We'd wake up every morning, grab a coffee, take the gondola up, watch the sun come up over the mountains, and by 8:30 we were writing. We just wrote non-stop."


Yesterday we also told you the new version of "American Idol" is abandoning the bad auditions, and we know a lot of people will be sad, that’s their favorite part! Well William Hung thinks that's a BIG MISTAKE.

 Of course, William became the bad audition by which ALL bad auditions were judged when he butchered Ricky Martin's “She Bangs” on Season Three.

William Hung did make a great point, he said that without those auditions, the show might not have anything to separate it from "The Voice"…which doesn't do bad auditions.


 Our Y100 Bud Light 8 Man Jam alumni Cam is coming to the rodeo February 18th and we can’t wait! Well, yesterday she posted a selfie on Instagram, but it wasn't some fun "Hey, look at me" pic. She wrote some serious stuff in the caption about how the photo was taken last year before a show when she was feeling anxious and inadequate.

She sent it to a friend hoping for feedback because she thought she looked, quote, "ugly-ridiculous-stupid." It's a feeling that she experiences before EVERY show during what she calls her "one hour of anxiety" of trying to look perfect. Now I’m not saying I’m glad this happens to her, but I am glad that she’s showing the world that she’s just a regular girl like all of us. 

It goes on to say that she's DONE letting the "beauty ideal" suck up her time, confidence, and ability to control her own self-worth. She pledges to focus on the positive in the New Year.

She included this in the caption, "I'm gonna leave these insecure moments in 2017. I'm gonna save my [concerns] for magical stuff this year. Just like that. So here I go, looking however I look, without the worry, to more present and powerful experiences in 2018."

Music City Minute: Sugarland, Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, American Idol

Sugarland has revealed the dates for their upcoming "Still the Same Tour," which will make stops this summer. The tour will include special guests Brandy Clark and Clare Bowen on the first leg, while Frankie Ballard and Lindsay Ell will join the duo for the trek's second half. The will make two stops so far in Texas

Wendy Williams was doing her "Hot Topics" segment the other day, and brought up Carrie Underwood’s accident back in November when she fell on her front porch… and then needed stitches on her face. 

Wendy said that she "didn't know a whole bunch about" the accident, and although that would have been the perfect place for her to stop, she didn't. Instead, she suggested that Carrie LIED about the whole thing.

She said, "Carrie said on Twitter that we might not recognize her when it's all said and done. I don't know what that means. An excuse for a facelift? But no, we're cynical. She was already cute, so I don't know what she's doing or what happened."

As you can imagine, that bit of nonsense was all over the place yesterday, which is probably what Wendy Williams was hoping for. A "source" told said Wendy wants to have Carrie on her show to clear the air. 


Orginally Dan + Shay thought their new song “Tequila” would be fun party song but then they decided to flip it. They explain how a lot of people related certain alcohol smells to certain memories, certain times in their life, or certain people so it’s really sort of a heartbreak song. Dan says, “It’s kind of a story where it’s like, I can do all these things I can drink whiskey, champagne, red wine all night, but when I taste tequila I’m right back there with that girl.”

This saddens me because I feel like this is a favorite part of the audition process for many people! It was the whole reason why we watch the auditions! I mean come on, who didn’t love William Hung! But American Idol did explain why they’re doing this in a way that completely makes sense, they said, "It doesn't feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up on stage and laugh at them." Well, when you put it that way I guess it all makes sense. Plus, the inspirational stories are really the ones that make me cry! 

Music City Minute: Zac Brown Band, Brett Young, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett

Last night was an amazing game the NCAA National Championship where Alabama beat Georgia in overtime 26 to 23! Hopefully you saw the beginning of the game where the Zac Brown Band sang an amazing rendition of the National Anthem featuring the Atlanta Gospel Choir, and you know anything with a choir gives you goosebumps!


It’s hard to believe Brett Young wasn’t a house hold name just about a year ago. His most recent single "Like I Loved You" just went No. 1 and it’s been there the past three weeks! The song marks his third consecutive No. 1 hit and gives him a boost going into 2018. Brett says, "This was such awesome news to start the New Year. I'm genuinely blown away and so thankful to my fans and Country radio for their continued support of my music." 

Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan may have once teamed up as co-hosts on the ACM Awards, but the two singers will now find themselves going toe-to-toe on primetime television. That's because ABC just announced that their reboot of American Idol, featuring Luke as a judge, will be in the same time slot as NBC's music competition The Voice starring Blake. Dun dun dun!!! While American Idol's new season launches in March with shows on Sundays and Mondays, the Monday episodes will directly compete with The Voice for viewers. Now THIS is going to be interesting.American Idol premieres its new season with two shows on Sunday, March 11 and Monday, March 12 at 7 PM. While Season 14 of The Voice launches on Monday, February 26 at 7 PM.

Thomas Rhett says his song “Marry Me” imagines what might have happened if he and his wife Lauren hadn't gotten together. He remembers years ago when they were each dating other people, until the day he took a chance and told her how he really felt. Fortunately, she felt the same.

Thomas says, "It's a make-believe story about me being invited to her wedding, and never getting the chance to tell her how I felt about her. I thought that was an interesting way to write a sad song, because it could have been my life very easily."

Music City Minute: Hillary Scott, Jon Pardi, & Gary LeVox 

Hillary Scott is nearing the end of her pregnancy and recently shared a pretty incredible video that shows her twin girls quite literally on the move. In the video the twins can be seen actively kicking inside her belly, giving fans a glimpse into a special moment in her pregnancy. In the caption, Scott called her twin girls "baby ninjas" and said she's still "absolutely floored by the fact that we are created to carry life, and that they MOVE like this within us." She then wrote, "I'm trying to soak up these (slightly less uncomfortable) moments that I will miss and try to hold in my heart forever."


Jon Pardi appears to be plotting a duet with his tour mate, Miranda Lambert. In a recent interview he revealed that he's actually recorded a song written by Miranda for his next album with hopes that she'll sing on it, too. While the duet isn't official just yet, Jon does say, "I'm working on it, but we did shake hands. You know Miranda-she's a Texan. A handshake goes a long way. There might be some collab on the next record." 

Brian Kelley finally got to meet Florida Georgia Line's newest member: Tyler Hubbard's newborn baby girl, Olivia Rose. On Thursday, Brian posted a picture on Instagram that shows him and wife Brittney sitting on the couch next to the little bundle of joy. Brian said in the caption, "Hard not to get emotional while meeting this precious angel today oh my Lord what a blessing!" He then talked about how proud he is of Tyler and his wife, Hayley, writing, "What a beautiful story God is writing. Y'all got parents of the year on lock already." 

Gary Levox from Rascal Flatts personal tour bus caught fire Saturday morning on the way to a hunting trip in Louisiana. He and his brother were on board when it happened but they were able to escape without injuries. It's not clear what caused the fire. He posted a clip through the front door showing smoke inside the cabin. He wrote, "It happened quick and could have been a different story if the ammunition would've caught fire. Thank you lord for your covering this morning."

He also posted a photo of hunting gear sitting on the ground next to the bus, and said, "Not where I was wanting to watch the sunrise."

Health Club Implements New Rule Banning News Networks

Exercise is considered one of the best forms of stress relief and health club, Life Time Fitness seems to agree! The massive health chain made the decision to discontinue showing cable news networks in their facilities. These networks which include the likes of CNBC, Fox News, MSNBC, and CNN will be replaced by channels, USA, A&E, Discovery, and HGTV.

Gym goers will still be able to access their preferred news sources through the facility’s Wi-Fi according to Life Time’s senior director of public relations and internal communications, Natalie Bushaw.

The move is likely to remove the subject of politics from the gym to reduce debates, conflicting views, and create a positive and healthy environment. Could other fitness chains follow suit? What do you think of the decision to ban news networks showing at the gym? Sound off below!

You could read more including a statement from Life Time Fitness from our friends at KSAT12 here!

Music City Minute: Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, RaeLynn, & Sugarland

There’s always rumors about Blake Shelton but this one scares me, he hinted that he might be retiring soon! It all started when Blake tweeted that he was watching the life story of famed football coach Bruce Arians, Blake tweeted, “Damn proud" to call Arians his friend, telling the coach, "Enjoy your retirement!!! I'll be joining you REAL soon brother!!!" While many took the tweet as a possible sign that Blake is hanging his cowboy hat up soon, we did some digging and that would be highly unlikely because he just signed a deal with Warner Music Nashville, basically proving he’s still committed to making music with his long time label. So Blake fans can rest easy! 


If you’re a fan of Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake this might be the best news you’ll hear all day. Chris just announced he’ll be one of Justin’s collaborators on his forthcoming album, Man of the Woods. While no specific details about Chris and Justin's collaboration have been revealed, a press release did say that Justin’s new album will also feature duets with Alicia Keyes, the Neptunes and Timbaland. This will be Chris’s first official recording with Justin, as well as their much-anticipated reunion following a huge performance at the 2015 CMA Awards. Justin's new album will be released on February 2.


A couple days ago we told you about RaeLynn’s dog Dolly running away New Year’s night due to loud fireworks. Well, after several days of being lost in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area in Tennessee, her dog has finally been found! RaeLynn shared the exciting news on social media yesterday, and posted a picture of the group of people she called her "heroes" who found her. 

RaeLynn said the group didn't want the $5,000 reward that was offered, saying they were just searching for Dolly out of the kindness of their hearts. RaeLynn then wrote, "The first of many miracles in 2018. Dolly survived 3 nights in single digit weather. She is a fighter. Mommy is on her way baby."


By now we all are well aware Sugarland is making a comeback! They teased it on the CMA Awards, and they had an amazing performance New Year's Eve, well now Sugarland has taken to Twitter to reveal the first details about their upcoming tour! The "Still the Same Tour" will make stops in more than 40 cities, right now the only Texas stop is in Sugarland, which obviously is fitting. The dates for the tour have yet to be announced, however, fans can sign up for the email newsletter for first dibs at tickets. The fan pre-sale begins Tuesday. If you haven’t heard their new single yet, it’s called “Still the Same” and it’s just like they picked up where they left off.

Music City Minute: Luke Bryan, RaeLynn, & Blake Shelton

PETA is upset that Luke Bryan gave his wife two kangaroos for Christmas. In a statement, PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien said that baby kangaroos "belong in their mothers' pouches, not in gift bags" adding that "these joeys have complex needs, including specialized diets and room to roam-they are not toys and will only become more difficult to care for as they grow older." PETA is also calling for an investigation into where Luke acquired these kangaroos from and stands ready to help country star "right this wrong and move these vulnerable marsupials to a reputable sanctuary." So all of that sounds legit right, like no one should be gifting their wives random kangaroos, but when I looked into this further, it’s not even like that. The kangaroos were the latest animal additions to Brett's Barn, a special project that Caroline started in memory of the couple's baby niece, Sadie Brett, who passed away in February from health complications at the age of seven months. With their Brett's Barn project, the couple had hoped to honor their late niece by ultimately working with local charities to bring kids out to see the animals.


This is so sad! RaeLynn is calling on fans to help find her lost dog, Dolly, who ran off her tour bus on New Year's night due to the loud fireworks outside. RaeLynn was playing a show in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area of East Tennessee when her dog went missing, and she's asking for people in that area to be on the lookout. The pup is a small, tan colored Chihuahua, who RaeLynn says she can't imagine being without. 

She updated her Instagram 11 hours ago and said, UPDATE: the last time she was spotted was this morning cuddled up in a blanket on someone’s porch in pigeon forge. When they went to grab her she bolted. Someone again saw her around 11:30am. I got here around 3pm from Nashville to lay out her beds and blankets from home. I am so thankful she is still alive and praying that she will be attracted from the scent of her bed. @theislandpf sent out there amazing team to help. It’s been a long day of ups and downs. Please keep praying for her return. 🙏


We’ll keep you posted!
