Music City Minute: Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Scotty McCreery 

 

It’s the first day of school for a lot of students in SA and Dierks Bentley knows exactly what it’s like because he has a 4 year old, 7 year old, and 9 year old. He says, “Back to school for kids is kind of like back to school for me, it’s like time for me to get back in gear too, I usually work out really early from 5-5:50 and so I get up at 4:45 when school is back in session, so I come back in the house with peak energy ready to rock for them”. 

And like any normal parent he struggles with getting the kids out the door on time saying, “From about 6 to 6:15 or 6:20 if you’re at 6:25 you’re going to hit traffic so you have to be right there that last like 10 minutes is like ‘guys if we don’t get out the door right now we’re going to be stuck’ so there’s a very fine window for making it to school on time.” 

We’ll have more tickets to see Dierks Bentley with LANCO and Brothers Osbourne September 20th at the Austin 360 Amphitheater all week at 11:10!

 

Miranda Lambert’s boyfriend, Turnpike Troubadours frontman Evan Felker, has finalized his divorce from his wife, Staci Felker, according to a new report.

A source says that the couple's marriage officially ended earlier this week, saying, “Staci feels free and relieved" now that the situation is resolved. And Miranda is happy that Evan is now “all hers”.

 

Scotty McCreery fans he will hit the road this fall and winter for his headlining Seasons Change Tour. It’s a 13 day tour named after his 2018 album, and will kick off November 29th in Dallas and will stop in San Antonio November 30th at the Aztec Theatre. Tickets go on sale August 24th 10 a.m.!

Music City Minute: Luke Combs, Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert

This might actually be one of my most favorite things of all time! Ya’ll known I’m a huge Luke Combs fan, well this made me love him even more. He did an interview recently with ABC News and he confessed he was a fan of boy bands back in the 90’s! Then he went on to sing a piece of *NSYNC’s “God Must’ve Spent A Little More Time On You” and I lost it, it’s amazing.

The death of Aretha Franklin resonated through the country community yesterday. Tons of artists went on social media to pay tribute and share stories of how she affected their lives.

Reba McEntire talked about finding inspiration. She Tweeted, "I've had so many influences in my life, and one is the Queen of Soul. Rest in peace, Aretha." She included a link to her 1988 CMA Awards performance of "Respect"

Willie Nelson hit up Twitter to say: "Whether it was gospel, blues, jazz, R&B, pop, or civil rights, Aretha [could] turn any song into a hymn. She'll be greatly missed here on earth, but that band in heaven just got our Angel. Rest in peace."

Miranda Lambert kept it simple, writing, "The greatest of all time."

 

Faith Hill included a photo, and wrote: "The choir of angels now have the greatest voice of all time to lead, praise, and join in to sing before Jesus. I wanted to share this photo because it shows just how soulful Aretha was without uttering a word. To say I was humbled to be in her presence would be an understatement."

 

And Margo Price may have said it best with this: "Legends never die."

Music City Minute: Jason Aldean, Midland, Maren Morris

A fairy-tale scenario happened for a young couple over the weekend, 21-year-old Jess McCormack, is a Jason Aldean fan and her boyfriend, Alex Borsari, took her to his New York City concert at Madison Square Garden on Aug. 11th.

When Jason broke into his romantic song "You Make it Easy," Alex led his girl to the aisle and dropped down on one knee, causing the crowd to roar with excitement. The couple were then led by security down to the stage area, where they were addressed by Jason, who shared his blessings with them!

 

Midland gave their list of the nine best honky-tonks in America. Granted, they're all in places where they've toured and spent time. And half of them are in Texas. So yeah… it's a LITTLE biased. But they're all solid choices.

 

1. Poodie's Roadhouse Driftwood, Texas

2. Billy Bob's Ft. Worth, Texas

3. Broken Spoke Austin, Texas

4. Luckenbach Luckenbach, Texas

5. Million Dollar Cowboy Bar Jackson Hole, Wyoming

6. Grizzly Rose Denver, Colorado

7. Gruene Hall Gruene, Texas

8. Buck Owen's Crystal Palace Bakersfield, California

9. The Troubadour West Hollywood, California. 

Which isn't really a honky-tonk, but it's Los Angeles, so what can you do. Plus it's legendary.

 

 

Maren Morris did a Q&A with her Twitter followers while she was stuck on a plane, drinking wine. And we learned some interesting things.

1. She wishes she could've played a 'White Walker" on "Game of Thrones".

2. She wishes she'd written "Love Yourself"by Justin Bieber.

3. The best advice she's ever gotten is "Always wear underwear."

4. The hardest part of being in the music industry is, quote, "Being young. Being a woman. And being different."

5. Her favorite drink is tequila and soda. Preferably Casamigos tequila.

6. Her dream collaboration would be with Freddie Mercuryof Queen.

7. Her favorite place is London, England. But she also loves France. Although she almost got ARRESTED there.

8. Oh, and she plans to have a baby next year.

[Summary]

Music City Minute: Carly Pearce, Cassadee Pope, Luke Combs, & FGL

Remember the whole thing about Carly Pearce wanting to get with Michael Ray, so she slid into his DMs so he'd notice her? Turns out there's a whole chain of advice that led to it. 

She heard about it from Cassadee Pope who used that technique on her current boyfriend, "Nashville" star Sam Palladio. And Cassadee was tipped-off to it from Mandy Moore.

Cassadee said, "I was inspired by Mandy. She met her husband through slipping into the [DMs], so that was kind of like an inspiration. So now I get to pass on the knowledge and experience to Carly.

"I thought it was so funny that she talked about it. I didn't even remember that I told her that's how I met Sam, or that that's how we started dating. I wasn't telling her to give her advice I was just talking about how I met him. And so it was really funny." 

And if you’ve missed Cassadee Pope: She just released her new single, "One More Red Light".

 

And Luke Combs fans if you’re loving his new song “She Got The Best of Me” you have to check out the video! It has a lot of cool inside things you might recognize. There are shots of his Boone, North Carolina hometown, cameos from his band members… and even the Dodge Neon he drove when he moved to Nashville. 

 

Tonight on TV you don’t wanna miss Florida Georgia Line on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

And randomly, I thought this was great, no affiliation with country music but there’s a show/movie called “Santa Jaws” that’s coming on the Syfy channel at 8pm and it’s all about “a guy who makes a wish to be alone for Christmas has to try to save his family after the wish backfires and a shark attacks them.” I can’t. Here’s the movie poster. 

Music City Minute: LoCash,  Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Jason Aldean  

Preston Brust’s wife went into early labor, so LoCash had to cancel their show in Marysville, Ohio on Friday. The news came suddenly so Preston had to take several flights to get back to Nashville.

Fortunately, he made it to the delivery room in time to be with his wife Kristen when she gave birth. Their son Legend Wilde was born on Friday. He's their second child. They also have a two-year-old daughter named Love Lily. 

You can read all about the exciting news here. According to their website, they're still scheduled for tonight's show in Norwalk, Ohio.

And speaking of LoCash, their new song is called “Feels Like A Party” and they co-wrote with Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard.

 

Some other fun things that happened over the weekend:

Carrie Underwood posted a photo of herself as she's about to go on stage at the Grand Ole Opry and you can see her tiny baby bump. 

 

Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline celebrated their son Tate's eighth birthday on Saturday, and the party included a homemade slip-n-slide.Both Luke and Caroline shared videos of their tandem slide as they were dragged along a wet tarp on a shark-shaped raft by a tractor.

 

And Thomas Rhett posted a super cute photo yesterday of his daughter Ada wearing one of his hats. They were celebrating a special occasion. He wrote, "Happy first birthday sweet baby girl. I love you so much it hurts."

And Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany revealed they’re having a baby girl! They both knew and made the announcement special for Kendyl & Keeley! 

Music City Minute: Chris Stapleton, AJ McLean, Dan + Shay 

So, you remember a while back we told you AJ McLean from The Backstreet Boys was trying to get into country? AJ actually said he was coming to country music to “disrupt country” and “shake things up” – listen I’m a fan of The Backstreet Boys but he’s sounding a bit cocky here. 

And that’s why I don’t feel bad at all doing this. Recently AJ covered a Chris Stapleton song called “Drunkard’s Prayer” now you know if you’re covering Chris Stapleton you better knock it out of the park. Well let’s see how AJ did. Here’s Chris Stapleton’s song:

 

Now here’s AJ McLean’s cover:

What do you think?

 

Everyone is loving Dan + Shay’s song “Tequila” so much that it just became their 4th number one, probably because it’s amazing. I thought this was SO cool and kind of magical, the guys released the isolated vocals from the song, and it’s going to give you goosebumps.

Music City Minute: Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett, Kelsea Ballerini 

This is one of the best stories I’ve read in a long time. You never know who you’ll be able to help when they need it right? Well, a New Jersey woman figured she would help pay the tab of a man who couldn’t afford his meal at a gas station convenience store.

Ruth Reed was at a Medford, New Jersey, gas station Friday night. And so was Keith Urban, he was on his way to his concert in Camden.

Mrs. Reed is a substitute teacher and had made a resolution to help customers she ran into at the gas station. When she was waiting to check out, the man in front of her was a few bucks short for his bill, so she paid the remainder. 

He thanked her, saying that his name was Keith. That’s when she told him he resembled Keith Urban. Turns out, he more than resembled the singer, but she didn’t believe he was who he said he was. But Keith’s bodyguard confirmed his identity. 

“It was then I realized what an idiot I was,” she said.

Of course the story has gone viral. One of her former students posted on Twitter, “My favorite story of the day is how my 3rd grade teacher thought Keith Urban was down on his luck and couldn’t pay for his Wawa snacks so she bought them for him. What an angel.”

 

Speaking of Keith Urban, he will be an advisor for Blake Shelton's team on Season 15 of "The Voice"!Thomas Rhett, Halsey and CeeLo Green will also serve as advisors on the upcoming season which premieres on September 24 on NBC.

 

If you weren’t lucky enough to be one of the thousands of fans that descended on Nashville during each day of CMA Fest in June, Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini have you covered.Kelsea and TR will co-host an upcoming three-hour television special on ABC that features 2018 CMA Fest performances from a bevy of artists, including Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Dustin Lynch, Midland, Old Dominion, Jake Owen, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce, Thomas Rhett, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Cole Swindell, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Brett Young.Special guest collaborations include Lauren Alaina joining Kane Brown, Julia Michaels joining Keith Urban, Morgan Wallen joining Florida Georgia Line, and Dwight Yoakam joining Dierks Bentley.Tune in to ABC tonight at 7 p.m. CT to catch the 15th annual prime-time broadcast.
