Chris Young fans have reason to get excited! The “Hangin’ On” singer says he’s been hard at work in the studio working on his next project. Chris posted a photo from the studio earlier this month, captioning it, “One of my favorite views in the world! #studio #countrymusic” and then shared a post yesterday with his dog, Porter in the studio “helping” Chris write!
In an interview with the Boot, Chris promises, “It’ll be sooner than you think!” You think Porter will get any song credits??
Speaking of new music – Kane Brown released his new song last night, “Good As You” which is being accompanied by a music video today! For the music video, Kane used footage from his wedding even tweeting, “Shot my whole wedding for a music video!!!!”.

We’re praying for one of this year’s 8 Man Jam performers, Lauren Alaina. The “Doin’ Fine” singer posted to Instagram last night that she will NOT be performing any shows this weekend including her show at Whitewater Amphitheater due to a family medical emergency. Back in June, Alaina announced her stepfather is battling Stage 4 cancer writing, “Please keep us in your prayers. Treatment is going well. We just hit a speed bump in the road. Treatment will continue this week as planned. Thanks everyone for all the prayers and donations. Our family is so grateful.”
All of us at Y100 will be praying for Lauren and her entire family through this difficult time.
The 2018 CMT Artists of the Year aired last night and featured all female honorees, making this the first time the show featured only the women of country music! The honorees included Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood, Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, and Hilary Scott of Lady Antebellum. There were several cool moments including a performance of Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel) Natural Woman” from Maren Morris and Brandi Carlile that paid tribute to the Queen of Soul.
When honoree Miranda Lambert took the stage, she vowed to always lift up other women while encouraging others to do the same with a message that embodies CMT’s message behind the evening.

Brett Eldredge saw a sign during a show on the last leg of his The Long Way Tour that he says changed his life.

Thomas Rhett and his wife, Lauren, celebrate their sixth anniversary today, Thomas looks back on their relationship over the years:Thomas Rhett: "It's been kind of an ever evolving thing 'cause we've know each other for so long. We've known each other since like fifth grade. So, we kinda got to grow up with each other and watch each other make terrible decisions and make good decisions. And watch each other date other people, and then ultimately get back together, you know, after college and get married. So, at the end of the day, you gotta enjoy hanging out with that person. You know, looks definitely do fade. [I'm] not saying her looks fade, but that comment is definitely true."
Kelsea Ballerini’s hubby Morgan Evans released his first stateside full-length album today, called “Things That We Drink To” and each of the 11 songs Morgan had a part in writing.
Morgan says: “My album is a collection of songs that I wrote over the last two years, it’s my story. It’s leaving behind everything and everyone you know to chase down a country music dream on the other side of the world. It’s the excitement of the unknown, it’s the fun, it’s the loneliness and it’s the struggle. It’s losing someone and finding the strength to keep your head up and make them proud. It’s meeting a girl, falling hopelessly and marrying the love of your life. It’s the Things That We Drink To.”

Being on the road must be tough for our favorite country artists, you’re always on the go, living out of a suitcase, not getting to sleep in your own bed, and a lot of them talk about “road food”. Which is basically the food they get delivered to the venues they’re playing concerts at, or their tour bus… usually from catering companies or restaurants. I can imagine that gets a little mundane sometimes!
One thing Michael Ray and Carly Pearce have in common is that they both like to eat clean. And Michael says it’s actually the opposite of what you might think when it comes to how he eats when he’s touring:
Michael Ray: "Carly and I eat a lot alike, so it's very bland. She likes the bland chicken and the bland veggies and all that stuff. So, it keeps it easier to eat healthy at home as well 'cause a lot of times I feel like I'd eat healthier on the road and then come home and have little cheat days here and there. But she helps me stay on track 'cause she eats just as clean as I do. So, it keeps it easier when you're at home."
See that’s what couples do, hold each other accountable!
Tim McGraw was recently asked how he juggles his singing and acting careers. He said music always comes first and his eyes are always open for great songs to record.
Of course, movies are more complicated because it takes getting the right script and having the free time to do it. But even then, the producers may be doing their own juggling about who they want to play the part. A lot of things have to go right.
Tim says one time he was asked what he'd do if he was offered an acting roll but had to gain 35 pounds. As we know, Tim’s obsessed with fitness so that presented a bit of a problem.
He said, "I don't think I could. It would have to be something that I could NOT say no to. In fact, a few years ago I got offered to play Elvis in the '70s, and I had to gain about 30 pounds to do it, and I just couldn't bring myself to do it."
All week we’ve been announcing artists for this year’s Y100 Bud Light 8 Man Jam! Monday was Kane Brown, yesterday was Aaron Watson, and today we announced Jon Pardi will be at The Majestic Theatre November 28th!

The Voice’s Season 15 Blind Auditions continued last night allowing coaches Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson and Blake Shelton to further build their teams for the upcoming weeks.
A particularly interesting standout was 22-year-old Kirk Jay who grew up on limited means in Alabama, living in a trailer with very few amenities. He blasted out a soulful version of Rascal Flatts' 2004 hit "Bless the Broken Road," which had first Blake, then Adam, and then Kelly and Jennifer at the last minute swiveling their chairs.
With all that, it's not too surprising that Jay went for the obvious. Can you guess? Of course, Team Blake.
Luke Combs has been getting compared to Chris Stapleton, which is fine by him. He says it's "awesome" to be put in the same category because Chris is a "super-stallion."
Every new performer gets compared to a more famous artist at some point. For Luke Combs, it's Chris Stapleton, and that's a pretty tall order. But there are reasons… besides both of them being big, burly dudes with beards.
Luke talked about it in an interview, and he was happy for the comparison. He says, "It means a lot. It's obviously awesome to be put in that category with him. He's a super-stallion himself, a great singer and obviously exploded on the scene."
The next question is will Luke have the same kind of staying power. I'm going with yes, because he's still working his tail off. He says, "I've recorded a lot of songs. I've recorded a ton of songs in January. I'm hoping to record a lot more this January.
"So the sophomore album could be two albums. There's enough songs for that, enough material for sure. Now it's kind of waiting to be able to release it."
It wasn’t that long ago the guys of Old Dominion were here performing in Austin! The guys released a new song called “Make It Sweet” and it’s exactly what you would think, a sweet song about love! You can check out the entire song and video below.
Zac Brown and his wife, Shelly, are splitting up after 12 years of marriage.In a joint statement released to People Friday, the two said, "We feel blessed to be on such an incredible journey in life and sometimes the journey begins to lead in different directions. It is with deep love and respect that we announce we are separating as a couple."The statement went on to say, "We have led a whirlwind life together growing into a beautiful family with five amazing children and while life will be rearranging a bit, our love and commitment to our family will always be there." The statement then concluded with a message for others, saying, "We would like to ask that rather than commenting or spending any energy towards this, that you take this moment to send love to your family, in honor of ours."
Taylor Swift was busy over the weekend she played two shows in Dallas, Friday night she brought out Maren Morris they sang Maren’s song "The Middle".
Then on Saturday Taylor brought Sugarland out to perform their song "Babe". It was the first time Taylor sang it in public!
Carrie Underwood posted a selfie on Friday of the clearest view I've seen of her scar from last year's fall. She took the pic while filming her "Love Wins" video, so there's a lot of colorful face makeup from the shoot… although most of it is around her eyes and forehead.
