Music City Minute: Kelsea Ballerini, Shay Mooney, Luke Combs

(From TasteOfCountry) Kelsea Ballerini said "yes" to Australian singer Morgan Evans back in December 2016, and we've been waiting for the wedding shower photos ever since! Well, this weekend we were rewarded with a collection of gorgeous photos! She shared some on her Instagram and said, “Celebrated Love today. my heart is so full it’s going to bust.” One of the guests was Lady Antebellum’s Hilary Scott, who shared a few photos showing off her cute pregnant belly at the event on her own Instagram account. 

Kelsea said she and her fiancé Morgan Evans are just about finished with wedding planning, and that "everything has been easy."

“We’re both very busy, but I think we’re pretty much done,” the singer, who has a new album set to drop Nov. 3, explains. “I have the dress. We have the place. We have the plane ticket. We’re ready to go.”

Speaking of weddings, Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay married his fiancée, former Miss Arkansas Hannah Billingsley, on Friday. They had a baby boy named Asher back in January and of course was there in a baby tux as someone carried him down the aisle! The ceremony was held on Shay's family property in Arkansas… and the couple chose Cancun, Mexico to enjoy their honeymoon! 


Luke Combs was recently asked a bunch of questions by fans and the answers are pretty hilarious! One fan asked, “When you finally got signed to a record label did you do anything to celebrate?” Luke said, “Well I signed my record deal from a fax machine in an RV in Montana, so there wasn’t many resources to party with, we played a show that night so that was cool.” 

He was also asked about his go-to karaoke song, he said, "Man! I Feel Like A Woman" by Shania Twain. And for his spirit animal, he went with Garth Brooks.

He did get real for a few answers though. He said he WOULD shave his head… The sport he would play professionally would be football… and he admitted that his worst habit is dip.

Music City Minute: Chris Young, CMA Performers, & Luke Bryan

Chris Young fans it’s the day we’ve been waiting for – his new album “Losing Sleep” is out!

We know George Strait’s had a ton of success on his two-year "Strait to Vegas" concert series, so it makes sense that he announced the addition of two more shows in 2018. The show’s will be during Big Game Weekend, February 2 and 3. Tickets go on sale October 27 at 10 AM at 


Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Garth Brooks, Thomas Rhett, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson, Brothers Osborne, Jon Pardi, and Old Dominion are the first round of performers announced for next month's CMAs. 


Luke Bryan made a major red carpet revelation at Wednesday night's CMT Artists of the Year event in Nashville. While making his rounds on the red carpet inquiring minds began noticing that Luke’s wife Caroline was now wearing a much larger rock on her ring finger. When Luke was asked about the new bling he confirmed that the rock was indeed an upgrade from Caroline's original engagement ring. Luke revealed that he actually gave Caroline the ring as a gift for their 10th anniversary back in December and joked "Ten years with me feels like a thousand. It was certainly the least I could do!"


Don’t forget another Y100 Bud Light 8 Man Jam ticket stop today from 5-7 at HEB plus for Mrs. Baird’s Bread – they’ll be at the 281 & Evans HEB!


PLUS we’re hookin’ you up with tickets to the show all weekend at :10 after!

Music City Minute: Chris Young, CMA Promos, & Kacey Musgraves! 

Last night at the Grand Ole Opry, Brad Paisley officially made Chris Young the latest member of the Opry family. Before he performed and was given Opry membership on stage, Chris talked about just how important being a member of the Opry is to him:

He said, “You know I was sitting there on my bus the other day with a bunch of my guys going, ‘Man, we have played some of the crappiest bars on the face of the planet together and tomorrow we’re all gonna get dressed up and they’re gonna induct me in as the new member of the Grand Ole Opry. And the only way that I know how to make anybody understand what the level of meaning that is at least to me is ‘Is there anything that I could put over this for relevance and the amount of how big an honor it is to be asked to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry, no.” 

The CMAs released promos for next month's show. They feature Carrie UnderwoodBrad PaisleyKeith UrbanKelsea Ballerini, and Garth Brooks

Kacey Musgraves hit up Instagram photos of her wedding to singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly. She captioned one, "Saturday, in a sacred place where two rivers meet and join together, I married my best friend… barefoot and surrounded by the deepest kind of magic and love that exists. I've never felt so tranquil and happy."

Music City Minute: Chris Young, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Eldredge 

A lot of country artists are starting to announce tour dates for next year. So I’ve decided to use context clues and assume that some of them are coming to the San Antonio Rodeo even though the lineup hasn’t been announced yet. Chris Young says he’s is planning his biggest tour yet, the "Losing Sleep" tour. I’m going to go ahead and make an educated guess, but also say a prayer that he’ll come back to the rodeo this year. Chris’s new album also comes out Friday! Check out the clip of “Leave Me Wanting More” this album is going to be amazing!

Also, Brantley Gilbert just announced new tour dates so I’m hoping he’ll be included in the rodeo line up too. Maybe we’ll get lucky and get both of them? No word on when the rodeo line up we’ll be announced but we’ll keep you posted. 


Kelsea Ballerini has some inspiring words for anyone who's feeling bad because they recently failed at something.

She talked about it in a recent interview "Failure is so important. I feel like failure can reroute your life. 

"It sounds silly, but in eighth grade I was one of two girls who didn't make the cheerleading squad. And you know what? That was the year I picked up a guitar and wrote a song."

The idea that she did NOT make it at one thing, gave her the drive to focus on something else. Kelsea says, "Failure is what keeps you on your path. It also gives you a pause to breathe before something great happens."


Brett Eldredge spends a lot of time getting to know "Duck Dynasty's" Sadie Robertson in the video to his song, “The Long Way”. It's from his self-titled album that came out in August.

Google Honors Selena With Her Own ‘Doodle’

On October 17, 1989 the Tejano world changed forever when a girl from Corpus Christi, Texas released her self-titled debut studio album ‘Selena’. Selena Quintanilla would go on to become known as the ‘Queen of Tejano’ and even 28 years later, her music continues to draw the same excitement from fans as it did back in ‘89.

Google decided to honor the music legend with her very own ‘Doodle’ or a customized Google animation. Tejano fans who visit Google will spot the image right away. To see the video homage, click the image and enjoy.

If you’d rather skip out on visiting Google to see the video, you can check it out here!

Music City Minute: Thomas Rhett, Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton

Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary on Thursday, sending each other sweet messages on Instagram. Thomas said that a lot has changed since their last anniversary, writing, "We have cried a little but have laughed and loved harder than we ever have. Love you baby! Here's to so many more. You + me." The message was accompanied by a photo of the couple with their two daughters, Willa Gray and Ada James. Lauren then wrote on her Instagram, "If this is 5 years, can't wait to see what forever looks like. I love you so much."


Kacey Musgraves married fellow country singer Ruston Kelly on Saturday in Tennessee. As you'd expect, they kept it under wraps… at least until he let it out on Instagram.

He wrote, "Last night as a bachelor. Finally ready to throw in that towel, [because] I actually found the real thing. Couldn't be more proud to have all our family and friends here to honor this new badass union."


Early Saturday morning he really got to the point and posted: "I'm like, getting married today."


Kacey also dropped the news on Saturday morning when she Tweeted the word "Today" next to emojis of a bride and two hearts.  


And then some 24 hours later she posted a photo of a flower bouquet… and captioned it, "The sweet morning after the most unbelievably magical night."


Carrie Underwood is well known for her love of animals — she even has her own charity devoted to their welfare (Oklahoma’s Checotah Animal, Town, and School Foundation, aka C.A.T.S.). However, there is one four-legged critter out there that she’s scared of and thinks it’s weird.

It’s … a turtle.

She posted a cute photo of her son Isaiah interacting with a large turtle, the singer added a hilarious caption in which she admits, “I’m fine with snakes and spiders and anything else that most people find scary, but turtles are NOT OK.”

Chris Stapleton will be here Friday at the AT&T Center and we’re hookin’ you up with last minute tickets to the show all week at 6:25 with Secret Celebrity. Over the weekend Chris made an announcement on when we can expect a new album:

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! Another way to win tickets is to go to one of our ticket stops the next one is tomorrow at Alamo City Chevrolet from 12-2, and Friday at HEB at 1604/Culebra from 5-7! You can get the rest of the ticket stops at or on our Y100 app!

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!

( 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!" 

San Antonio Gridiron, S.A. Mayor Ron Nirenberg Get Down To ‘Despacito’ For Scholarships

San Antonio Express-News Writer Michael Quintanilla collaborated with city council to put together a fun music video to the summer hit “Despacito”! The music video is a part of the ‘Gridiron’ show which is similar to the sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live. According to their Facebook page, “proceeds from the San Antonio Gridiron are used for scholarships for college students pursuing degrees in journalism or communications.”

“Gridiron shows traditionally are produced by journalist as local fundraisers, combining original skits and song parodies in a live theatrical production that spoofs newsmakers as well as the journalist who cover them,” says the Facebook page.

The AWESOME music video shows San Antonio City Council including Mayor Nirenberg moving to the popular Luis Fonsi song. Huge shout-out to Quintanilla, San Antonio Gridiron, and everyone else who put this video together; it’s another way to show how much fun we have in the Alamo City! Check it out!

What do you think, Y100 Family? Would you want to see a Beth Chandler, Mayor Nirenberg “Hot Cheeto/Despacito” collaboration?!

Music City Minute: Tributes from Maren Morris, Vince Gill, & Keith Urban

(From Rolling Stone) Maren Morris may not have just written "Dear Hate," but it's a song that has become tragically relevant in the past 24 hours for the Grammy winner and members of the country-music community the world over. In the wake of Sunday night's mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, Morris posted the song, which features Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill, on Monday afternoon.

"I wrote this song 3 years ago, recorded it last year with Vince Gill, and always have fans asking when I'll put it out. I never knew when would be the right time, but I realized today that there's never a right time," Morris wrote in the Instagram post debuting "Dear Hate." "Hate is everywhere, and I'm sick of not doing enough. In the darkest tunnel, there is still love & music. That's what it's here for. Here is Dear Hate. Any cent I see from this I'm donating to the Music City Cares Fund."


Keith Urban and Vince Gill also paid tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting in a beautiful way. Last night Nashville held a vigil for the Las Vegas Shooting victims where Keith sang a cover of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and delivered a a few touching words…

“I started this morning by finding out about it and being shell-shocked all morning, getting my kids ready for school. My 9-year-old, as I was driving her to school this morning, said to me, ‘Dad, you seem quiet,’” Keith began.

He continued, “I said, ‘Yeah, a lot of people [were] killed last night.’ She said, ‘Did you know any of them?’ and I said, ‘Not that I know of.’ Then she said, ‘Then why are you so sad?’ I said, ‘First of all, these were innocent people horrifically taken, and secondly, they’re like family.’ It’s the one thing about country music that’s always been the center of it – it is community. So I did know those people, in that way.”

Vince Gill was also there and paid tribute singing “Go Rest High On That Mountain” video from the vigil is below:


If you’re wondering how you can help the victims of the Las Vegas shooting the Clark County, NV commission has established a GoFundMe account to provide financial relief to the victims families. The guys of Florida Georgia Line donated $10,000 and challenged some of their country friends like Thomas Rhett, Luke Bryan, Backstreet Boys and more..
