Music City Minute: Maren Morris, Chris Stapleton, Tim & Faith! 

It seems like there’s some drama going on after the ACM Awards on Sunday. Maren Morris hit up Twitter to call out "Rolling Stone" for saying Sunday's ACMs "dropped the ball" on their Route 91 tribute. They accused the academy of being "unwilling to confront difficult emotion head-on."

Maren took this personally because she was one of the artists who addressed the tragedy at the beginning of the show. She called "Rolling Stone's" accusation "unnecessary." 

She said, "Artists who want to talk about Vegas HAVE talked about it and everyone just wants to exhale. How about asking one of the country fans who survived that night if they felt the ball was dropped. Or Jason Aldean. I think the ACMs were respectful."

She also added, "I get that everyone has an opinion, but if you weren't there and they aren't YOUR fans who were taken, maybe don't judge a show that's trying to help everyone move on." Which all seem like great points, and good for her for speaking out.

 

Some positive ACM Awards news, as you probably know by now Chris Stapleton didn’t attend the show on Sunday because he was on baby watch with his wife Morgane. Well, Reba made the announcement on the show that the twin boys arrived early and congratulated them both. Yesterday Chris tweeted that everyone was doing great, and his wife Morgane shared the first photo of them, and it’s just so precious!

 

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill made the TMZ website! But not for something crazy, they are standing by their man, Ed Sheeran and insist one of their hit duets -- which he wrote -- was not a rip-off of an Australian hit song.

A few months back we told you about Faith and Tim saying they lawfully licensed their song, "The Rest of Our Life" ... which would mean there's zero issue with them performing it. They also deny the track is a "note for note" duplication of "When I Found You" ... a 2014 country hit for Jasmine Rae.

The update is Tim and Faith just filed their response to the suit, and while they are backing Ed's claim he wrote an original ... they also say IF their hit song is based on Jasmine's, and her songwriters DO suffer any damages ... it ain't their fault. Basically, Tim and Faith are like look we're just up here singing ... talk to our writer.

 

And a reminder tonight on TV Dierks Bentley and Gwen Stefani will be on the "Jimmy Kimmel" show!

Chris Stapleton Shares First Photo Of Twins!

Chris Stapleton's wife, Morgane, has given the world its first glimpse of their adorable twin boys. Yesterday, Chris tweeted that the twins were "doing great”:

Morgane also posted a picture of the boys on Instagram along with a message thanking the nurses and doctors at Centennial Women's & Children's Hospital in Nashville. Morgane said their twins were born more than a month early and they had a weeklong stay in the Neonatal, Intensive Care Unit (NICU), where the "incredible people there kept our boys healthy & happy." She then wrote, "Words cannot express our gratitude for you all & what you did for our family. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!"

Music City Minute: Jason Aldean, Sam Hunt, The Backstreet Boys 

Jason Aldean was on the “Ellen” show yesterday talking about his Entertainer of the Year win at the ACM Awards. Whether you liked or disliked the show, one thing everyone seems to agree on, from fans to country singers. And that is, they HAVE to start nominating females for Entertainer of the Year. Even Jason Aldean agrees.

Jason said backstage, "For whatever reason, there were no female [nominees] this year. I definitely think there's some worthy of being there, for sure.

"I think there's some that should be represented in there and honestly, down the road, if they happen to win one, I'll be the first one up congratulating them because I think it's probably a little overdue." 

 

 

Speaking of the ACMs, Sam Hunt’s song “Body Like A Back Road” won Single Record of the Year but you may have noticed he wasn’t at the show. Sam said he was unable to attend the ACMs because he was celebrating the marriage of his longtime friend and tour manager, John Worthington. Naturally, everyone made it seem more dramatic than that.

 

If you’re a fan of The Backstreet Boys this might make you really excited. A.J. McLean is recording a country album. Yes, the Backstreet Boy that seems the least likely to be country. A.J. says, “I am coming in to disrupt country. I’m coming to shake things up.” Alright look. I love the Backstreet Boys and I love country music. But First of all A.J. calm down. He also went on to say, “after we did ‘God, Your Mama, And Me' with Florida Georgia Line… something just kind of clicked and I just got this overwhelming inspiration to just give it a go.”

Music City Minute: ACM Awards Recap + Performances 

Last night may have been the best ACM Awards yet! We were treated to amazing performances by our favorite country artists and of course they took home some awards! Reba was back as the host and was so adorable with her little jokes and banter about seeing a lot of these artists as babies.

Miranda Lambert won Female Vocalist of the Year last night for the ninth year in a row! She also won Song of the Year for "Tin Man" which makes her the most-awarded artist in ACM history, with 31 wins. Brooks & Dunn are in second, with 29. 

Now Chris Stapleton couldn’t be at the show last night but for good reason, his wife Morgane was expecting to give birth to their twin boys so of course he didn’t want to miss that! And it’s a good thing he stayed home because they welcomed their little boys into the world and Reba made the announcement right after they accepted the award on Chris’s behalf for Male Vocalist of the Year, and he also won an award for Album of the Year! Plus, if that wasn’t enough, yesterday was also Chris’s birthday! What a night for him! 

The Entertainer of the Year might be the most prestigious award of the night, and that went to Jason Aldean. He’s struggled with a lot over the past few months since the Route 91 tragedy and rightfully became emotional when accepting the award.

Vocal Group of the Year - Old Dominion

Song of the Year - “Tin Man” Miranda Lambert

Next up was Toby Keith and Blake Shelton singing “Should’ve Been A Cowboy”:

And finally to end the night Reba and Kelly Clarkson sang “Does He Love You”:

But the performance everyone was waiting for seemed to be Carrie Underwood’s performance of “Cry Pretty” it was her first performance since her fall back in November.

This Version Of Luke Combs “Hurricane” Will Leave You Speechless! 

It's clear Luke Combs just keeps getting bigger and bigger the more hits he puts out.  Like most country singers Luke started in bars and honky-tonks but has quickly proven he can command the attention of any size audience. It’s a been a whirlwind since he release “Hurricane” so it’s amazing to look back at a video of the song that Luke uploaded about two years ago to Instagram, the moment the break it down accapella will give you chills!

If you haven't noticed any Instagram posts from Kane Brown recently, that's because he's actually deleted his account. While Kane hasn't given a specific reason for taking down his account, he did hint that something big was on the horizon. When a radio station recently asked about the missing Instagram account on Twitter, Kane responded by saying, "Need people to miss me for a certain thing I have coming up." It's not just the country singer's Instagram account that's mysteriously gone missing; the Instagram account for his fiancée Katelyn Jae has also disappeared.

Kane and Katelyn's Twitter accounts are both still active though.

Like most singers Luke Combs has been around for a while even though he just recently started getting his songs played on the radio. Back in 2011 he was a student at Appalachian State University and like any musician trying to make it he covered famous singer’s songs and one of those was Luke Bryan’s “I Don’t Want This Night to End”.

Music City Minute: Carrie Underwood, Gwen Stefani, Walmart Yodeling Boy

The Walmart yodeling kid was on yesterday's "Ellen"…and she surprised him with an invitation to perform at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday.

His name is Mason Ramsey, he's 11 years old, and he went viral by yodeling Hank Williams “Lonesick Blues” at his local Kentucky Walmart. So of course he performed it yesterday on The Ellen Show.

Ellen asked him he chose to sing in Walmart and he said because it’s the only store they’ve got. Then he went on to tell her he wanted to be a famous country singer, and she asked what he would do if that came true and his response was adorable. He said, “Well, I would save up all that money and I’m gonna go to college, and then I’m gonna move to Florida and I’m gonna work my way up in a motor home” 

The best part of the show was when Ellen surprised him with an invitation to perform at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday. She also said Walmart is giving him a $15,000 college scholarship, and that his local Walmart has booked him to do a concert. Check out the full interview followed by his performance: 

 

Speaking of Ellen Gwen Stefani was also on the show yesterday. Ellen wasted no time asking her about the tabloid rumors that say she and boyfriend Blake Shelton are getting married. Instead of answering Gwen asked Ellen what she thinks the couple should do, to which Ellen responded "I love being married. I think you should get married." Even though Gwen didn't directly answer the question, she did say she loves weddings, adding that she thinks about marrying Blake "all the time."

Gwen also revealed some big news on the show, announcing that she's heading to Las Vegas for a new residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. The "Gwen Stefani - Just a Girl" residency will kick off June 27.

Carrie Underwood released a new song today called “Cry Pretty” and it’s kind of what we’ve been waiting for – a powerful anthem that Carrie absolutely crushes. It digs deep into how it can be hard to mask heartache and sadness when all you want to do is break down and cry.

She’ll perform the song on Sunday’s ACM Awards and I think it definitely has the potential to be the performance of the night, she’s been recovering from that fall and everyone’s been missing her, so I don’t think she’s going to hold back.

Music City Minute: Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett 

Luke and Caroline Bryan have mastered the art of annoying their kids. They posted a video to Instagram over the weekend dancing a jig on a beach house porch as one of their kids begs for lunch to be made. Caroline's caption for the video reads, "Our favorite pastime is to annoy our children."

 

Carrie Underwood is up for two ACM Awards at Sunday’s show: Female Vocalist of the Year, and Vocal Event of the Year with Keith Urban for "The Fighter”.

Tomorrow is also a big day for Carrie Underwood, she’s releasing a new song! She posted a photo on Instagram of her left eye with glitter in the shape of tears. She’s putting the song out at 5am tomorrow. No word yet on a title.

However, the ACMs did announce that she'll be performing that new song at the show on Sunday. 

 

Speaking of new music Thomas Rhett is releasing his autobiographical anthem, "Life Changes," as his next single. Thomas says, "Life Changes" gives a first-person account of his life, covering everything from the college years and marrying his wife Lauren, to becoming a dad and the evolution of his career. He says, "It's definitely the most personal song I've ever written, but we all go through a lot in life whatever the story is, so I think the sentiment is something a lot of people can relate to."

 

And tonight on TV a two-hour Grammy special "Elton John: I'm Still Standing" at 8:00 p.m. on CBS. A concert where other artists perform classic Elton John hits, including Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Ed Sheeran, and Sam Smith. Plus, Reba and Kelsea Ballerini will be on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
