Jana Kramer Shares Heartwarming Daddy Daughter Moment On Instagram

We’ve all heard the expressions “mama’s boy” and “daddy’s girl,” but the reasons those terms exist is because those relationships do. We’re sure that there are intricate psychological reasons to explain those mother/son and father/daughter relationships, but does it matter? They aren’t just precious to those parents and their offspring, they’re pretty adorable to us, too. Especially when those children are little, like Jana Kramer and Michael Caussin’s daughter, Jolie Rae. Jana shared a video clip on her Instagram page, and it appears that mother and daughter had been enjoying the beautiful weather by taking a little walk. Now, we aren’t sure if Michael had been away for a couple of weeks, days or hours, or if he had merely stayed home while his little ladies took their stroll, but when Jolie spots Daddy down the sidewalk, it is like it has been years since she has seen him. RELATED:  Jana Kramer and her husband publicly declare their love in a big way The toddler takes off running on her tiny legs, ponytail bouncing, screaming “Daddy, Daddy,” before throwing her arms into the air where Michael scoops her up and swings her around. Jana writes, “My heart can’t handle this. #daddydaughterlove” In all honesty, our hearts can’t handle it either. Country music is full of amazing parents, and Jana and Michael are among them. Their commitment to raising and co-parenting their beautiful little girl superseded marital issues that they had just a short time ago when they separated in 2016. But their commitment isn’t just to Jolie Rae, it was also to each other and the wedding vows they shared in 2015. Jana, who is quite honest on social media, sometimes asking other moms for advice about raising her daughter, appearing sans make-up or glam and sharing the  heartbreaking news of a miscarriage last year, has been equally up front regarding her relationship with Michael.  She told “People” that the couple is “actively working on their relationship” and that “It’s day by day.” And, really, is that so different from most other married couples? RELATED:  Jana Kramer shares heartbreaking family news with her fans Jana and Michael did  renew their vows in December, and in another incredibly honest post, Jana wrote, “2017 … you broke my heart, you broke me down, you made me question everything, but damn did you make me strong. You taught me patience, you taught me family was everything. You made me believe not only in myself but the power of forgiveness. You turned me into the women I always wanted to be.” She also said, “Here’s to always believing in love and fighting for it.” And in a newer post, Jana shared an updated picture of the gorgeous couple and said, simply, “Dare to love.” Our props to this real-life couple who show us what “for better or worse” really means

Tim McGraw Speaks Out About Parkland, Florida Shooting

A lot of celebrities are speaking out about many of today’s tragedies. Tim Mcgraw is no different. He has taken to Facebook to share his feelings on the shooting that happened over a week ago in Parkland, Florida. He writes “ I learned one of the teachers who was shot in Florida at Stoneman Douglas, Scott Beigel, was a friend of one of my associates – they were camp counselors together. What an amazing man who lost his life protecting the children. That is a true hero. And I’m deeply moved by these students who are lifting their voices – challenging us to listen, learn, and make real changes.  #NeverAgain“

Cole Swindell Releases Artwork For “Break Up In The End”

Cole Swindell has unveiled the cover artwork for new single “Break Up in the End,” which he will release this Friday, February 23. “This is one of those songs, from the first time I heard it I knew it was special,” Swindell captioned the single art, which shows him wearing a black hat and brown leather jacket while looking out of frame. “I think so many people will be able to relate to the lyrics. Even though I didn’t write it I’m amazed that the best writers in town are bringing songs like this to me and I’m very excited that this is the first single from my new album.” “Break Up in the End” was written by Jon Nite, Chase McGill and Jessie Jo Dillon. It marks Swindell’s ninth career single.

Blake Shelton Reaches Out To Luke Bryan After Learning Of His American Idol Gig

If you have seen The Voice, then you know how ruthless those judges are when it comes to the competition… So we can only assume that that is how Blake Shelton would be to Luke Bryan as the two go head to head during the weekly primetime hour when The Voice and American Idol air at the same time on the same day. But actually, its the exact opposite. Blake Shelton (at least behind the camera’s and publicity) he is just a supportive, great friend.

As Luke Bryan recently shared with Kix Brooks on America’s Country Countdown, Blake Shelton reached out to him when he first learned of getting his American Idol judging gig. Luke says, “When the Idol deal went down, Blake sent me a text going, ‘Man, so fired up for ya. Nobody deserves a big ole TV opportunity more than you.’ Blake’s been one of those guys that had to work and scrape for every bit of recognition that he’s had.”

Maren Morris Opts Out For Traditional Bachelorette Party

Maren Morris got her friends together on Monday night (2/19) for a big bachelorette party in Nashville. If you follow her on Instagram you may have seen a few drunken Instagram stories that were hilarious. But Maren’s crew didn’t hit the honky tonks on Lower Broadway like the many other bachelorette parties in Music City. Instead, they opted for a low key house party that included plenty of alcohol as well as lip-syncing to classic 90’s songs. Morris’ documented the celebration on Instagram, sharing videos and pictures of how the big soiree went down. The party was attended by everyone from RaeLynn and Cassadee Pope to Kree Harrison and Lucie Silvas.

 

Jana Kramer Handles Red Carpet Meltdown Like A Champion

By Rare Country: Meltdowns happen. When absolute exhaustion sets in, when you have no idea how to process your feelings or when you’re just done with the situation, it is inevitable. Of course, as adults, those tantrums often happen internally and manifest themselves in bottles of wine, rows of Oreos or a mind-numbing Netflix binge. But in toddlers, meltdowns happen externally and they usually involve tears and a face plant on the floor. Secretly, we’re jealous of the toddlers. Especially Jana Kramer’s little one, 2-year-old Jolie Rae. RELATED:  Jana Kramer shares new pics of family time with her hubby and baby girl If you follow Jana on social media, you might already know that when it comes to momming, she is one of the most honest and authentic mothers there is. She often shares her distress about her daughter’s finicky eating habits, and solicits the advice of other mothers when it comes to Jolie’s diet, habits, behavior and a variety of other things that toddlers go through. It’s obvious she’s so proud to be a mom and wants to be a great one. From what we’ve seen, she is. Jana and Jolie just took part in the Rookie USA Fashion Show on Feb. 15 in California. The event showcases the Rookie USA multi-brand collection of athletic apparel for kids, and features celebrity models with their children. This was Jolie’s first time to participate in a fashion show and, in her Insta Story, Jana took us behind the curtain while her gorgeous little peanut visited the glam squad before her debut. That included having her makeup done … … her hair done … … and a pre-runway snack of mac & cheese. She even had her pensive pout down pat. Prior to their stroll down the fashion show’s catwalk, though, there was a red carpet, and both Jana and Jolie, in adorable coordinating outfits, were flashing dazzling smiles. But, at one point, it looked like Jolie had enough of all of the fanfare that accompanies an event like this and she did what almost any toddler would do: She laid down on the red carpet, put her head in her hands and melted down. And Jana, well, she was downright amazing. Instead of being upset or embarrassed, she stroked Jolie’s back, smiled at the cameras and shrugged, acknowledging that her little one had had enough. RELATED:  Jana Kramer’s little family celebrates winter with a tradition that melts the iciest heart We don’t think she could have handled it any better! She didn’t make it a big deal, so there was no tantrum. She kept her cool and her sense of humor, and showed incredible patience and understanding to her sweet little girl who had already done something way outside of what she was familiar with. Jolie out. We’ve noticed that no matter how anxious Jana might get with Jolie’s limited menu, she always has a smile and laugh for her daughter, even when she drinks out of the dog bowl. What else can you do but laugh? Wouldn’t it be nice if, when we’re on the verge of a grown-up meltdown, someone would rub our backs like that?

Vince Gill defends Grammys on female representation

Vince Gill defended the Recording Academy over the criticism that female artists were underrepresented at this year's Grammy Awards.

Gill said it is "impossible" to not leave someone off the list in a given year.

"I look at it kind of trying to see the whole field, you know. And I think the Grammys will go on and the country artists will feel slighted. Or maybe the classical people will feel slighted," Gill said. "It's impossible to pull something off like that and not leave a few people by the wayside."

The country star spoke before a benefit concert for the Country Music Hall of Fame on Tuesday in New York where he shared the stage with Emmylou Harris, Maren Morris, and Kesha.

Sitting with Harris and Morris before the concert, the 21-time Grammy winner said all that matters is that musical people are "conscious of what's great at the end of the day."

"You're looking at three really ope- minded musical people. We don't care about genres, of color of skin, or gender, or anything. We just love playing music with great people and that's all," he said.

Morris, who won her first Grammy last year, agreed, saying that the Grammys history backs it up.

"I think the person that's won the most Grammys is Alison Krauss so I don't know. I mean, there's obviously some things that need to be looked at, I think, and maybe it's just voting members. Maybe we need to like expand on that," Morris said.

Krauss has won 27 Grammys, and nominated 44 times. Krauss is actually tied for second place with Quincy Jones for most Grammy wins. Hungarian composer Georg Sorti holds the record with 31 wins.

Morris also cited another Grammy winner.

"I was really proud of Alessia Cara that she won best new artist. I think she really deserved that," Morris said. "But I think there's always improvement that needs to be had."

Harris admitted she was aware of the problems facing women in the recording industry, from sexual misconduct to unfair treatment, but doesn't count herself among those affected.

"I haven't run into a lot of the problems that I know are out there. But my path has been pretty unfettered with those kinds of things," Harris said.

The Recording Academy drew criticism for a variety of issues, including not having album of the year nominee Lorde perform on the live telecast last month. Also, of the awards shown on the broadcast, only two winners were women — Cara and Rihanna (for a collaboration with Kendrick Lamar).

Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow intensified the situation, saying that women need to "step up" when asked about the lack of female winners backstage. He later said he misspoke.

Throwback To Chris Stapleton & His Wife Singing Unique Version Of “You Are My Sunshine”

Well, I think it is definitely safe to say that we have never heard “You are my Sunshine” like this. Here is a throwback to Chris Stapleton and his wife, back in 2015 singing the iconic song in what looks like a small venue for some fans…

Tim McGraw Shows Off His Gorgeous Wife While On Vacation

By Rare Country:

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are never too shy to turn up the heat when it comes to their beautiful marriage. And, they’ve proved that many times while onstage, in interviews and on social media. So when it came time to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we sort of had a hunch that they would put their love for each other on display in some way, shape or form. And sure enough, they did. For the romantic holiday, Tim took to his Instagram page and paid tribute to the love of his life with a photo and lyrics that mimic “My Funny Valentine.” The song, which was originally used in the 1937 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical “Babes in Arms,” went on to become a jazz standard that has been covered by famous singers like Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald. “My funny valentine, sweet, sweet valentine you make me happy …” Tim adorably captioned his message, alongside a snapshot of his wife of more than 20 years. In the accompanying photo, Faith rocks a more simple and relaxed style than what we’re used to seeing, as she always looks so perfectly glammed up for concerts and red carpet events. Even though she appears to be casually dressed in beachwear, she still looks so stunning in her fashionable black sundress or cover-up and matching wide-brimmed hat! She has her hair pulled back in a loose braid or ponytail while flashing her flawless smile for the camera. Meanwhile, the view behind her shows glimpses of palm trees and enviable warm weather. So, we can only assume that the snapshot is from one of the married couple’s recent vacations on their  private island in the Bahamas. As for Faith, she didn’t post a Valentine’s Day-elated note or photo on Instagram, but she did reference two of the couple’s romantic duets, “It’s Your Love” and “The Rest of Our Life” on  Facebook. Soon enough fans will get to hear those duets live, because Faith and Tim will be bringing their love back to the stage for the second leg of their “Soul2Soul The World Tour.” The tour picks up on May 31 in Richmond, Virginia, and wraps up on July 22 in Sacramento, California. Fans can go to  soul2soultour.com for a complete list of tour dates.  

Activists delay rebuild of Hawaii hotel with Elvis ties

Developers rebuilding a storied, hurricane-ravaged Hawaii hotel with a Hollywood connection were looking forward to the Coco Palms' rebirth when two men showed up last year, claiming to own the property because they descend from King Kaumualii, the last ruler of Kauai.

The men set up camp in tents and at the old tennis pro shop at the shuttered resort, where Elvis Presley's character got married in the 1961 film "Blue Hawaii." Hurricane Iniki forced its closure in 1992.

"They simply just showed up and started squatting," said Chad Waters, one of the partners of Coco Palms Hui, the company leading the redevelopment.

Police were called, trespassing citations were written, and a judge last month issued an order to evict them.

Since then, a stream of protesters has come and gone, with some days just a few demonstrators and others dozens camped out at the resort near an ancient Hawaiian fishpond in the community of Wailua.

It's the latest example of Native Hawaiian activists taking a stand on cultural issues and sacred places, such as challenging a giant telescope planned for a Hawaiian mountain and blocking the U.S. military from using an uninhabited Hawaiian island as a live-fire testing site.

The protest also comes amid continued activism by indigenous groups across the U.S., who have rallied over issues ranging from sports mascots to environmental causes such as the Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines.

Attempts by The Associated Press to reach the two men in the Coco Palms case — Noa Mau-Espirito and Charles Hepa — by phone and online for comment were unsuccessful. However, Mau-Espirito last year told The Garden Island newspaper: "We have title to the land. We're not camping. Our goal is to get all the families who have royal patents in Wailua back on their land."

The judge disagreed with the men, ruling their claims don't give them the right to occupy the property.

For Kaukaohu Wahilani, who flew from his home on Oahu to Kauai to support Mau-Espirito and others, it's about standing up to the wrongs committed against Hawaiians — all the way back to the overthrow of the Hawaiian kingdom 125 years ago.

"That was the place of kings, that was the place of alli," he said, using the Hawaiian word for ruler or royalty. "It was a sacred place, and it still is."

He and other Native Hawaiians want the area called by its traditional name, Wailuanuiahoano.

At least 50 protesters gathered at the site, bracing for law enforcement action, as the judge's 6 p.m., Jan. 28, deadline to leave the property approached. But no police showed up, and the protesters remained.

"I was kind of hoping (police) would have showed up at 6 because we had a lot of people there," said Wahilani, a Native Hawaiian activist who considers himself a subject of the Hawaiian kingdom.

Last month, the defendants filed a document stamped the "Hawaiian Judiciary Court of the Sovereign," saying the judge in the Coco Palms case needs to surrender to law enforcement or face "immediate arrest." In court documents, Judge Michael Soong called the filing nonsensical "legalistic gibberish."

Five to 10 people have been at the property this week, Waters said.

He and his partner requested help from state sheriffs.

Toni Schwartz, spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Safety, said only that the sheriffs are working toward a resolution with the property owner, Kauai police and the protesters. "For safety and security reasons, we are not at this time, free to discuss any strategies that may be utilized in any related enforcement action," Schwartz said in a statement.

Demolition began in 2016, with the goal of reopening in mid-2018. The clash has caused delays, so the developers hope to start construction soon after the protesters leave, Waters said.

The renovated hotel will have 350 rooms, including 22 master suites and about 50 junior suites. Hyatt will manage the hotel once it's reopened.

Wailua was the political center of Kauai long before the resort opened in 1953 and Presley's character crooned the "Hawaiian Wedding Song" while holding his bride's hand and boarding a raft to cross a lagoon.

It's where chiefs were born and lived, said Lilia Merrin, a teaching assistant at the University of Hawaii's Kamakakuokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies. Because of its high amount of surface water, it was ideal for loi, irrigated fields for farming the starchy vegetable taro, a staple crop, she said.

Growing up in Wailua, Merrin knew of Coco Palms mostly as the hotel where family friends worked in service jobs before the hurricane. She learned about its Hawaiian significance in college. "If we understand these places, we can better protect them," she said.

Coco Palms Hui has planned since 2014 to set aside land at the resort for a community nonprofit that will offer lessons in Hawaiian culture, including hula, lei making, Hawaiian language and ukulele.

The nonprofit also will provide hotel workers with a guide about Hawaiian culture and the historic Wailua area. The fishponds and lagoons are on the state historic registry and will be preserved.

Tyler Greene, the other partner of Coco Palms Hui, has said the resort will help the island by supporting "healthy and vibrant activity for both the residents and visitors," according to The Garden Island.

The Coco Palms fight was inspired by what protesters accomplished against the Thirty Meter Telescope, which they said would desecrate sacred Mauna Kea, Wahilani said.

Construction stopped in 2015 after 31 demonstrators were arrested on the mountain for blocking the work. A second attempt to restart construction ended with more arrests and crews retreating.

The project is now tied up in legal battles.

"Mauna Kea brought us together, and since then we've done amazing things," Wahilani said.

Gwen Stefani Shows Off Romantic Valentine’s Day Gift From Blake Shelton

By Rare Country:

Valentine’s Day is a day for lovers, and when it comes to lovers, there is no couple hotter than Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. So as Feb. 14 approached, country music fans wondered just what Blake would have in store for his love, and whether they would end up sharing the day together. And while we are unsure if they actually were able to spend time together, Blake certainly made sure that his lady felt loved on Valentine’s Day. In a YouTube video put together from some of Gwen’s Snapchats from Feb. 14, fans can see that Blake got Gwen a gorgeous bouquet of flowers, along with a card that read “Have a great Valentine’s Day … I love you.” “I just got the most incredible flowers,” Gwen said to the camera as she gushed over the bouquet. “Wow. I’ve never gotten flowers like that.” On top of the video, Gwen had typed the words “Luckiest girl in the world. Blake Shelton, I love you for real.” You did good, Blake! RELATED:  Blake Shelton has a plan to bring smiles to kids in his hometown And heck, Blake has done much to keep people smiling as of late.  As recently reported by Rare Country, Blake made a hefty donation to his hometown in Oklahoma that will be used to significantly upgrade a  local park. “I’d like to sit here and take credit for the idea of a park, but we already had one in Tishomingo,” Blake joked to local TV station  KTEN. “It’s hard to imagine it right now as I’m freezing to death here in Tishomingo, but we’re going to add water park things to Pennington Park. I just go, ‘Hey, I’m gonna go do these two [benefit] shows and raise all the money, and then you city people figure out how to do this.’” “I think that’s extremely special and it shows to his character,” Tishomingo mayor Tom Lockey told the TV station. Even the fans can’t get enough of Blake these days, especially his fans in his home state of Oklahoma. Blake fan John Moody told KTEN of the park upgrade, “It’s really good for small towns, and it’s fun. It’s going to be a destination … It already is. So folks can come here and have good clean fun and clean music and enjoy this town.” Of course, Blake will be spreading the love around as he heads out on the road for a slew of dates throughout 2018. On Feb. 15, Blake will open the “Country Music Freaks Tour” in Oklahoma alongside  Trace Adkins, Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce. RELATED:  Gwen Stefani gets her flirt on with Blake Shelton in new duet performance Recently, he was announced as a headliner for the Faster Horses Festival, which will take place from July 20-22 in Brooklyn, Michigan.

Chase Rice Recalls A Huge Day In NASCAR History- The Day Dale Earnhardt Sr. Died

For NASCAR fans, Sunday (2/18) not only marks the day the annual Daytona 500 race gets underway but also the anniversary of when legendary driver Dale Earnhardt Sr. died in a crash at that very same race.

Chase Rice, being from North Florida near the east coast, he grew up a huge fan of NASCAR and the Daytona 500, and he recalls the day the man known as “The Intimidator” passed away: “I mean, I cried the day Dale Earnhardt died. I remember I went down to the barn where my dad and brothers were working and I said, ‘Ya’ll ain’t gonna believe it, Dale Earnhardt just died earlier,’ and my dad was just like, ‘What?’ So, it was just that moment something of larger than life being taken away from everybody.”

That is a day that, if you’re a NASCAR fan, you remember vividly. But that hasn’t been the only time that Dale Earnhardt Sr. has made an impact on the lives of the Rice family…

Chase says his father actually kind of resembled Dale Earnhardt Sr., and he recalls there being a case of mistaken identity while the two were in Daytona Beach, Florida. Chase says, “I remember one time at Chick-fil-A when I was a kid – I was probably eight years old…And my dad had a Goodwrench hat on, which was Dale Earnhardt’s sponsor. And some guy came up to him and he said, ‘Hey man, can I have your autograph?’ And then he said, ‘You’re my favorite driver.’ And that’s when it hit, it was like, ‘Oh my God, he thinks you’re Dale Earnhardt.'”

The Daytona 500 will air this Sunday on FOX at 2:30 PM ET.

Brett Eldredge & Dan + Shay Have Different Opinions On How To Celebrate Valentines Day

When it comes to Valentines Day in a relationship, you don’t want to do TOO much but you also don’t want to do too little either. There is a happy medium. The guys of Dan + Shay believe that earlier on in a relationship, especially the first year you, you gotta start super small… Shay says, “Every Valentine’s Day is always a lot of pressure for every guy. So, you gotta be strategic. Any guys out there starting a new relationship you gotta start small, get like roses the first year. You can’t go all out not even roses maybe like a hand-written note.”

NASHVILLE, TN – NOVEMBER 02: (L-R) Abby Law, Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay, Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay, and Hannah Billingsley attend the 50th annual CMA Awards at the Bridgestone Arena on November 2, 2016 in Nashville, Tennessee. (Photo by John Shearer/WireImage)

Then you got Brett Eldredge over here telling you the exact opposite, saying “You can go a little over the top sometimes, you know, like fill a room with a bajillion flowers and all that stuff. It’s just like, be romantic but be romantic in a place of like spending time with that person. I’m not saying don’t give them roses or something, [but] just don’t go over the top and fly an airplane that says ‘I love you’ or something, you know?

Maybe there is a middle ground. Maybe it’s Dan + Shay’s way the first year and the 2nd year is more the “over the top” way when the relationship is more solid. What do you think?

 

Dierks Bentley Gives Tips To Men For Taking Their Sweethearts Out On Valentines Day

Valentine’s day is a HUGE deal to some. And there are just some people who do that romantic stuff better than others. With the face that Dierks Bentley has written an entire album of songs inspired and written for his wife, we’d say that he is one of those hopeless romantic types. So this year, he is helping the men out by giving some good tip for taking their sweethearts out this Valentine’s Day:

He says, “You know, just opening the door, it’s such a big deal. It’s just a nice thing to do. It’s a car door, unlocking the door for somebody to get in the car first and hold the door to get in, and I just think that’s just, if you’re doing that, then you’re obviously thinking about ways to be respectful, be considerate, be kind and be thoughtful.”

Jake Owen Participates In Golf Tournament With Huge Celebrity Partners

Jason Aldean Releases “You Make It Easy” Music Video In These 3 Emotional Episodes

By Rare Country:

Jason Aldean just kicked up his  new single, “You Make It Easy,” to a whole new level with an intense, three-part video he just released for the song. In the first clip, you see a guy trying to get his old Dodge Ram truck to start while sitting at a stop light. He’s so focused on getting the stalled engine to start that he’s overcome with joy when it finally turns over. Unfortunately, he doesn’t look to make sure the road is clear, and his truck is instantly t-boned by a tractor-trailer. The rest of the story unfolds from there as we see footage of the guy hanging on in the aftermath of the accident. The story, which plays out over the course of the three videos, also includes footage of the guy in bed and in the bathtub with his love, who we learn is named Grace. As we listen to their conversation, the guy is constantly telling the woman that she doesn’t have to stay with him and that she could easily find another guy. She repeatedly tells him that she chooses to be with him. As the video series continues, we learn that while he did survive the car accident, he’s now paralyzed and in a wheelchair. All those conversations about him wanting her to find someone else took place after the accident. The storyline puts a whole new spin on the lyrics to “You Make It Easy.” This couple has faced a big life challenge together, and they end up celebrating their love with a wedding in the last installment in the video series. Thanks to a virtual reality headset, the couple is able to have a first dance at their wedding reception, too. It’s a sweet series that’s definitely worth taking 15 minutes out of your day to watch. In a YouTube interview released along with the videos, Jason and his video director, Shaun Silva, talk about making the videos. The concept started with inspiration from another video Shaun directed for  Rascal Flatts — “What Hurts the Most.” That clip featured a love story interrupted by a tragic car accident as well. As for the new song, Jason first heard “You Make It Easy” while hanging out with one of the song’s co-writers, Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard. So far, Jason has had a lot of luck performing songs co-written by FGL’s Tyler and Brian Kelley, including “Burnin’ It Down” and “Lights Come On.” Jason says, “We’ve had a pretty good run with those guys. So, I called Tyler up one day, and he came over to the house. We basically just got in my truck and rode around for a couple hours listening to songs. I was playing him some of the stuff that we’d already cut, and he started playing some songs that they had written. He played that one almost like it was nothing. Like, ‘Oh yeah, I’ve got this other thing. We just wrote this Friday.’ Then he played it, and I just fell in love with it immediately.” Tyler ended up giving Jason the song since he was going into the studio soon, and the rest is history. Country newcomer Morgan Wallen is also a co-writer on “You Make It Easy.” Look for “You Make It Easy” on Jason’s upcoming album, “Rearview Town,” due out April 13.
