Beth’s Backstage Blog From Nashville! 

For the next week we’re in Nashville for the CMA Awards! The show is Wednesday night at 7pm at the Bridgestone arena and we are SO excited. 

All this week we’re broadcasting live out here so tomorrow, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday you can hear us interviewing a ton of your favorite country artists!

I was able to come to Nashville a couple years ago as some of you might remember so I did a lot of fun tourist stuff then, I went to the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Ryman, and Studio B. So, this time I wanted to explore some of the shopping Nashville has to offer!

As soon as I landed I took an Uber to the hotel, dropped off my suitcases and hit the road! Let me just say it’s fall here you guys, the trees are BEAUTIFUL! I told J.R. we have to go to a park one day before we leave so I can take pictures of the trees and show you. Anyway, when I landed I was starving and like I do every time I go to a new city I checked out Yelp! to find the best food. I headed over to a restaurant called The Grilled Cheeserie and YOU GUYS this place was HEAVEN! 

 

I did my research and that restaurant was in one of the shopping neighborhoods called Hillsboro Village. I saw some cool “pieces” as all the fashionistas say, which means articles of clothing, haha, but I only found one.. ONE shirt! It’s just a green v-neck that can go with some jackets I have. Then after that neighborhood I went over to one called The Gulch, and 12 South. I did see an amazing jacket with fringe all over but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend $155 on it. That’s A LOT! 

After I shopped till I dropped I headed back to the hotel because my room was ready and unpacked everything, hung stuff on hangers, and got settled! J.R. was already at the hotel and was waiting for me to get ready. Right when I started to do my make-up I realized I FORGOT some off it! Crisis, seriously. I had to text J.R. and say “Look I’m sorry but I have to take an Uber to go buy this make-up” he laughed at me of course but crisis averted I got the make-up! 

Finally, I finished getting ready and met up with J.R. in the lobby and he’s been to Nashville several times so he knows where the cool spots are! We went over to a favorite bar of his called “Dawg House” and had a couple beers there after the make-up fiasco! 

Then he reminded me my FAVORITE place I’ve always wanted to go to is HERE! FGL House ya’ll! So we took an Uber over to the restaurant and bar that Florida Georgia Line own and it is AWESOME! Since I didn’t find a lot of clothes earlier at the shops, I totally need an FGL shirt as a souvenir, I didn’t want to carry it around all night so I’ll have to go back before we leave. 

Then, we went by Tootsie’s, a famous bar here in Nashville with TONS of live music on three different levels, it’s so cool! We saw one of J.R.’s friends and enjoyed some music. We thought we were finally staying out late for once and then we realized it was only 9pm haha! By this time we were both starving and I asked if we could eat at this yummy looking place I found on Yelp! called The Stillery, so we went there and had some amazing food! After that we were stuffed and called it a night!

 

Sunday November 5th:

Alright ya’ll today is the day! We have orientation for our CMA broadcast that starts tomorrow. The orientation is today at 5pm but until then we basically have free time. We got an extra hour of sleep with Daylight Saving Time so that was amazing! After eating everything on the planet yesterday I had to go get a workout in, so I can keep eating all the things! But of course before you work out you need to eat something so I decided to treat myself to room service while watching “Say Yes to the Dress” and it was so perfect! 

Then I headed over to this place I discovered in San Antonio called Cyclebar, it’s basically a fancier name for a spin class, except you get a mimosa after your work out! Talk about motivation! I ended up burning some calories from the mac and cheese I had last night.

The trees here are AMAZING, we’re heading to a park later this week to take some pictures of them, but just as a teaser I saw this on the ground and HAD to take a pic.

Eventually I met up with JR at the hotel and we met up with some of his friends back at Bad Dawgs where I had a boring, healthy, chicken salad. Then it was time to head over to the orientation where Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood gave a press conference!

Tomorrow we do the show live and heartbreakingly will talk about the tragedy that happened in Sutherland Springs, we just wanted to know we are with ya’ll in spirit even if we aren’t physically in Texas. It’s breaking our hearts and obviously something we can’t ignore. We aren’t sure of how Tuesday will go on air, but tomorrow our interviews start with the artists about CMAs so we’ll keep you posted. 

Music City Minute: New Album’s From Blake Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini, & Lee Brice! 

Country music fans today is a big day! Blake Shelton’s new album “Texoma Shore” is finally out today! He’s been putting out a new song from the album every day this week, you can check out today’s below it’s called “Why Me”:

We’ve been waiting for Kelsea Ballerini’s album “Unapoligetically” for what seems like forever, that’s out today too! Along with Lee Brice’s self-titled album, he’ll be at Cowboys December 2nd! 

 

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood were on "Good Morning America" talking about next week's CMAs. They also reminisced about previous years that they hosted.

Robin Roberts said one of her favorites was their attempt to do the "Gangnam Style" dance, and she showed a clip of them looking pretty stiff. 

Brad said, quote, "That's me willing to do anything for this show." Carrie added, "We are willing to make ourselves look terrible. We just put it all out there." 

They talked about how the CMAs always have great collaborations, and Brad said he's looking forward to his performance with Kane Brown. "I get to sing with him. It's always exciting when you see someone making their debut on this show. 

"They really are thinking outside the box in terms of making sure that there are really cool collaborations that you don't expect. I predict, though, that the highlight of our show is Carrie." Unfortunately, he didn't go on.

And then Carrie said, "If it is, it has absolutely nothing to do with me. It's going to be a really special moment." So, we're left thinking Carrie's special moment may be, in Brad's words, "a cool collaboration." Any ideas who that would be?

Music City Minute: Kip Moore, Blake Shelton, & Merle Haggard 

Kip Moore fans if you missed him on the Today show yesterday he performed “More Girls Like You”:

Merle Haggard is the latest country star whose name will appear on a museum in downtown Nashville. On Monday, Merle's family joined Icon Entertainment Group - the management behind the Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline Museums - to reveal plans for the Merle Haggard Museum and its accompanying restaurant, Merle's Meat + 3 Saloon. The museum will feature some of Haggard's performance wardrobes, instruments and possessions, as well as interactive exhibits. The museum and restaurant are slated to open in the summer of 2018.

 

The list of performers at New York City's upcoming 91st Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will include some of our favorite country stars. As you watch the parade look out for Dustin Lynch, Lauren Alaina, Cam and Sara Evans on Thanksgiving. The artists will either perform on board one of Macy's signature floating stages, or at Herald Square where Macy's flagship department store is located.

Music City Minute: Halloween Costumes, A Pregnancy Announcement, & Blake Shelton’s New Album!  

Our favorite country stars got all dressed up for Halloween and we are loving their Instagram posts showing off their costumes! Brittany and Jason Aldean were Axl and she said she was a pregnant Egyptian lady, Lauren Alaina and her man were Foxy Cleopatra and Austin Powers, Carrie Underwood and her hubby were a hunter catching his deer, and this was probably my favorite Thomas Rhett was a beer keeper and his daughters were bees! 

Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane have revealed that they're expecting twins, expanding their growing family to four. Morgane made the announcement on Monday night in a sweet Instagram post marking the couple's tenth wedding anniversary. She wrote, "14 years, 2 babies, & 2 more on the way. Happy 10 year anniversary babe! You make my whole world go round." Chris and Morgane are already the proud parents to a son and a daughter.

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are hosting the CMA Awards for the 10th year in a row! He said, "We have this shtick now, which we build on. We take on personas a little bit beyond who we really are, as a duo. I get to play the idiot, [and] Carrie gets to be the voice of reason." You could also say he plays the fool, and she's the straight man. Whatever it's called, it's working.

More performers have been announced for the CMA Awards! Keith Urban will now perform along with pop star Pink and Tim McGraw with Faith Hill to the lineup. Keith is also slated to take part in an unprecedented opening collaboration that will feature Eric Church teaming up with Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker and more.

Music City Minute: Brad Paisley, Lee Brice, & Jake Owen 

Last night the Astros beat the Dodgers in the 11th inning now they are tied 1-1 for the series. Gonzalez became only the 10th player time in World Series history to hit a game-tying homer in the ninth inning, and two innings later, the Astros had three more, including back-to-back homers by Altuve and Correa in the 10th, and Springer’s two-run homer in the 11th.

But before the game Brad Paisley took the field at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium Wednesday to deliver the National Anthem ahead of the 2017 World Series Game 2. 

 

 

Lee Brice released the video to a song called “I Don’t Smoke”. It's one of the tracks on his next album, which is due out November 3rd. 

 

 

Jake Owen put his Nashville home on the market! It’s a 4,918-square-foot mansion he bought from Loretta Lynn and is located just outside of Music City, in Kingston Springs, Tennessee, and is listed for $1.5 million. Built in 2006, the property consists of four bedrooms and four-and-a-half-bathrooms, including two master suites. It also features a chef’s kitchen and a recording studio. While Jake lived in the home, he expanded the master bedroom and renovated the kitchen. According to Zillow, mortgage payments would only be about $5,800 per month. See more photos here: Fridrich and Clark Realty.

Music City Minute: George Strait, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, & More CMA Performers

So we all know George Strait lives in San Antonio but I feel like George sightings are few and far between. Last night though a George sighting happened!!! He was spotted at The Rustic at The Rim near La Cantera enjoying a drink with friends and watching the Astros game. Our friend Robin said, “We were REALLY close to him. People were taking photos and yelling ‘We love you George!’ That would get his attention and he would turn around and wave. He was just chillin’ by the kitchen area drinking. He was there to kick off his new tequila.” SO jealous! 

 

The CMA Awards have always been known for one-of-a-kind musical collaborations, and this year's ceremony will be no different. The CMA’s just announced four all-star pairings for the November 8th show, they will include Kelsea Ballerini with Reba, Dierks Bentley with Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley with Kane Brown and Maren Morris with pop star Niall Horan. These artists join previously announced CMA performers like Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett and Carrie Underwood. 

The show will be hosted for the 10th year by Brad Paisley and Underwood November 8th at 7!

 

Blake Shelton will be in New York City next week for the launch of his new clothing line with Macy's department stores. It’s called "BS by Blake Shelton," the new clothing line features an assortment of tops and outerwear that match Blake's everyday look, including several button-down plaid shirts and even a leather bomber jacket. The official launch of the line will kick off November 2nd and will be available in stores and online. 

 

You know, guy’s mess things up all the time and Luke Bryan is no different! Luke’s new album "What Makes You Country" is coming out December 8th. Here's the problem with that. It's the same day as his 11th wedding anniversary. Yeah, it kind of slipped by as he and his team planned the release date.

Guess who let it didn't slip by? His wife. Luke said, "I'm at the house, and I'm like, 'Yeah, baby, I'll be up in New York and the album comes out the eighth.' She looked at me and goes, 'Hmm, interesting day for an album release.' And I said, 'I'm sorry baby.

"So I started spinning it. 'Baby, just come to New York and we'll eat great food and we'll walk and look at people at Rockefeller Plaza.' She's like, 'You work 20 hours a days during album release week… but I'll be there.'" I think she’ll be okay with it considering she got a huge ring upgrade on their anniversary last year.

 

Music City Minute: Tim McGraw, Chris Janson, Maren Morris, Alan Jackson

We got to experience Tim McGraw and the Soul2Soul tour a couple weeks ago, and as you know Chris Janson is doing an amazing job opening for Tim & Faith. Well sometimes the guys like together backstage and have a little jam session, and they did that recently with Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried”.  

 

Maren Morris just made news for something unexpected. She signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models. She's their first country artist. Other musicians on their roster include Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas, and Shawn Mendes.

If you’re wondering what this means for Maren? Well, they're going to get her photo shoots with fashion magazines, they'll help style her for red carpet events, and they're going to set up partnerships with fashion companies. So, maybe a Maren Morris line of clothes?

But she sees something else about this deal that's very important. Quote, "It's been really inspiring to see my fans and young girls look at me as someone to model after. You don't need to look perfect or sound perfect. 

"I mean I'm five-foot-one, and I've got short brunette hair. I'm not the typical country-looking starlet. But I think that's what gravitates my fans to me. I have an edge to what I say in my songs and it translates visually as well to my personal style."

Sunday was a big day for Alan Jackson, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame! Alan spoke about how there was one main reason he got into country music, cars. He wanted a lot of cars and couldn’t afford them so he thought well, the only way I might get to do this is becoming a singer.

George Strait and Loretta Lynn were on stage to present Alan Jackson with his induction medal and unveiled the plaque with his name on it. Then, bless her heart Loretta Lynn said this was the first time she’s been out since her stroke but she had to make it for Alan.

You can watch the induction for Alan Jackson, and see the sweet words Loretta had for him:
