Music City Minute: American Idol Recap, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan 

Last night American Idol went from the Top 5 down to the Top 3! Contestants performed a song from the catalog of Carrie Underwood and a Mother’s Day related song. Maddie Pope sang Carrie Underwood’s “I Told You So” and put her own twist on it.

 

Caleb Lee Hutchinson also made it in to the Top 3 with his version of Carrie Underwood’s “So Small”

 

And my favorite contestant since the beginning, our country girl Gabby Barrett sang “Last Name” and killed it in her performance as usual! 

 

The Top 3 will compete again for America’s Vote as the American Idol two-night finale begins LIVE next Sunday at 7pm on ABC!

 

Speaking of American Idol – Luke Bryan got a big surprise on the show last night for Mother’s Day. Luke’s Mom made an unannounced visit live on the show! It was super cute Luke’s Mom LeClaire sent what seemed to be a taped message to her son:

"Hi Luke," she started in the clip. "I miss you here on Mother’s Day. (I) wish I could be with you. I’m having a good day down here at the beach. Wish you were here with me. I’m very proud of you. I’m getting excited about the night. I get to watch American Idol one more time. Love you. Call you in the morning. I have something to tell you about fishing."

 

The Nashville Predators were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs on Thursday, Carrie Underwood shared a video on Instagram of her son, Isaiah, helping his dad, Mike Fisher, shave off his playoff beard. In the video, the 3-year-old can be seen taking an electric trimmer to his dad's face as they sit in the bathroom and Carrie films the whole thing. The caption said, "Prediction: This won't end well..." Carrie then posted a picture of special moment on Instagram Stories, writing, "Saving $$$ on grooming now that he's out of a job." The Preds' heartbreaking loss to the Winnipeg Jets in Game 7 of their series brought an end to the team's playoff run, and it also likely marked the end of Mike’s NHL career, as he's expected to retire again after this season. After the game, Carrie took to Twitter to share a message of support for her husband and the team he's played with for so many years.Carrie tweeted, "Welp, to me & our 3 year-old, @mikefisher1212 is the greatest hockey player alive & the @PredsNHL are now & forever the greatest hockey team in NHL history! Not the ending we wanted, but we're alive & well & I get my hubby back, so I say God is good!"

Music City Minute: Chris Stapleton & Justin Timberlake, Carrie Underwood, Luke Combs 

Carrie Underwood appeared on NBC's Today show yesterday, giving her first TV interview since her fall last November. She sat down with Today's Hoda Kotb, and Carrie opened about returning to the spotlight after her fall, saying, "In the beginning, I feel like I didn't know how things were gonna end up. It just wasn't pretty." After Hoda told Carrie she looks the same as before, the singer credited her "dedicated team of professionals who can spackle and paint and paste." She then said she's feeling "a little more back to normal" every day.During the candid interview, Carrie also talked her ACM Awards performance of "Cry Pretty" and revealed the spot where she usually goes to cry: in her car. The two then joined Carrie's mother, Carole, for a special Mother Day's workout event for her fitness line, CALIA by Carrie Underwood. 

Fans attending Justin Timberlake's Nashville show got a huge surprise Wednesday night when Justin welcomed his friend Chris Stapleton onstage for a couple songs! First they performed their duet "Say Something":

Then Justin hinted that they weren't finished just yet, telling Chris, "Now you know I can't let you leave without playing this song." Then they started to sing "Tennessee Whiskey," a song which they sang together at the 2015 CMA Awards in the very same building. 

 

Ya’ll know how obsessed I am with Luke Combs.. well he was in my hometown on Tuesday at the TPC at Sawgrass golf course where he gave a special performance during Military Appreciation Day ahead of the annual The Players Championship golf tournament. Every year they have a country singer perform on the 17th hole stage. Well Luke Combs decided to take a break from his set and tried to hit a ball onto the iconic island green while professional golfers Justin Rose and Brandon Grace watched. In the video Luke can be seen taking his best shot at the island green, but ultimately ending up in the drink which I learned means the water apparently. 

Music City Minute: Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson

Keith Urban will celebrate his wife, Nicole Kidman, this Mother's Day for the kind of mom she is to their two daughters, Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose.

Keith Urban: "I didn't really grow up with much intimacy in my family, and Nic is wonderful with intimacy. So, that's absolutely the biggest thing I'm learning in being married to her first and foremost, but in watching her being a mom to our girls, is fostering that intimacy and expressing and communicating. I think our girls are very lucky to have her as their mom for that."

 

Dierks Bentley knows how hard his wife works to keep their growing family in check while he's on the road because when he's home, he and Cassidy tag team at parenthood.

Dierks Bentley: "It's the toughest job out there being a mom, and I know from my life with my wife Cassidy. We work as a team together when I'm home, and it takes everyone to get the job done, me and her, working together."

 

Carrie Underwood isn't worried about getting that special gift from her son Isaiah this Mother's Day. She knows the two men in her life will hook her up.

Carrie Underwood: "I obviously don't expect anything from my three-year-old, but my husband's really good at getting presents from quote unquote Isaiah. It's really sweet, because he likes to bring me things. He's such a sweet little guy, and anytime he's outside, he'll pick me flowers and things."

 

Speaking of Carrie Underwood she posted on Instagram yesterday to share a few pictures from her "fun day" at the Nashville Zoo with her cousins. The pictures show the group hanging out with the giraffes and the kids petting one of the zoo's many kangaroos. Carrie said in the caption, "Loved seeing the kiddos bond and learn about all the animals!"

This is SO adorable! Kelly Clarkson likes to quilt. And she's pretty good at it, too—earlier the week Kelly gave homemade quilts to her costars on The Voice.

Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Carson Daly all proudly showed off their new quilts on social media, each of which was designed by Kelly to fit the recipient's personality.

Blake raved over his quilt, which was made up of rustic-looking blue shades and a patch that hilariously pays tribute to his home state of Oklahoma (it reads "Useless land north of Texas.")

5 Places To Find The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift! 

Blue Q – I had never heard of this site before but I went and checked it out it has AWESOME little gifts and knick knacks for Mom like dish towels, bags, & socks! You might even find something for yourself on there. 

Etsy – is always a go to for any holiday. They always have amazing personalized gifts that seem special, and not just like you threw it together last minute, and a lot of the little shops on there can do priority shipping. One Mother’s Day I got a recipe my Grandmother wrote printed on a dish towel for my Mom.

Another online option is Mark & Graham; I had never heard of them but apparently they’re a sister company to William & Sonoma so I knew it had to be good! They have all sorts of accessories you can get stamped or sewn with Moms initials but this isn’t a basic monogrammed site, the things you can buy look high quality and I actually got my Mom something from there and I can’t wait to give it to her!

Now if you’re more of a store shopper and love picking out things that just speak to you.

Francesca’s – is always great for gifts, they usually set up a big table full of items for that specific holiday. You can always find something! There’s one at The Quarry & La Cantera.

Anthropologie – it’s a little fancier but you can always find amazing smelling candles there, and they have really pretty things for your kitchen whether you’re looking for dishes, glasses, or accessories. 

Music City Minute: Kane Brown, Lauren Alaina, CMT Awards, John Rich, Sugarland  

You know how pretty much all of our favorite country artists have bars in downtown Nashville - Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Alan Jackson and Blake Shelton? Well now John Rich has one too! His new Redneck Riviera bar is getting ready to open in Nashville, John Rich is glad to able to join the growing list of country stars with downtown spots: 

John Rich: "I think it's cool that all the country artists are doing that because Lower Broadway is where we all hung out anyway when we all came to town. So, to be able to go back and have honky tonks down there with kinda our fingerprints on it is gonna be a lot of fun." This Saturday, he will hold a special kickoff event at Redneck Riviera Nashville to raise money for Folds of Honor, an organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships to spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service-members. 

The "2018 CMT Music Awards" nominees were announced yesterday. Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, and Jason Aldean lead the pack with four nominations each.

The show airs June 6th, and Little Big Town are the hosts. 

 

 

 

Speaking of the CMT Music Awards Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina have a decent chance of walking away with one next month for their "What Ifs" video.

But some of the best acting Kane ever did was during the ACM Awards when he and Lauren had to pretend to be romantic while performing "What Ifs"

Even though they've been friends since middle school the producers wanted them to "sell" the love song. They were coached to slowly walk towards each other until they ended up face-to-face. 

Kane said, "That was the first thing they told us. They were like, 'you're over here, and you're over there… and THIS is how you end.' We were like, what? It was super awkward. 

"Lauren was like, 'Might as well go ahead and grab his butt too.'" 

 

Mother's Day is Sunday, so it's probably no coincidence that Sugarland has released the lyric video to their new song "Mother". It's one of the tracks from their album "Bigger", which is out June 8th.

Music City Minute: Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Brantley Gilbert

Carrie Underwood is making a return to her old stomping grounds, American Idol, on Sunday! She'll serve as a guest mentor to the show's remaining contestants. The top five contestants will perform songs from Carrie’s songbook on next week's live show, after a special mentoring session with her during a surprise trip to Nashville. Carrie will also be performing her new single, "Cry Pretty," on the show. The new video for "Cry Pretty" can be seen here: 

 

Jason Aldean has revealed that "Drowns the Whiskey" featuring Miranda Lambert will be his next single. This news come as Jason continues to hold the top spot for a second straight week "You Make It Easy," his 20th career No. 1.Jason Aldean says he knew "Drowns the Whiskey" was something pretty special when he first heard the finished product with Miranda's vocals:Jason Aldean: "It was awesome, [it] turned out great just like I thought it would. And she's such a great singer, such a great harmony singer, too, that she knocked it out [of the park]. It was great and one of the highlights of this record." A behind-the-scenes look into the recording process for "Drowns the Whiskey" can be seen here in official lyric video: 

 

Luke Bryan was on "Kimmel" last night, and said fellow judge on American Idol Lionel Richie is always telling amazing stoires, and Luke even admitted that he used to get busy to Lionel’s music. 

 

Country stars tend to be night owls because that's when they have to perform. That's okay if you're on your own, but it's not the perfect schedule if you're raising kids. But it CAN work if the kid doesn't sleep through the night yet.

Brantley Gilbert and his wife Amber have a pretty good system going with their five-month-old son Barrett. 

He says, "In the morning I'm not present. I'm asleep, but I got the late night shift. So I put him down, and then I've got the monitor until about 3:00 or 4:00 AM.

"I go up and work… and then I come down and put the monitor on her side of the bed and get me some sleep." 

Even though Amber has read a lot of baby books, they still ask the doctor a bunch of questions. He says, "Every time you go in, 'Are we doing this right? Are we doing this wrong?' The whole thing's a curve ball. A moving target. You're always learning."

It was filmed at Nashville's Blackbird Studio, the video shows Luke and his band recording the track as the producer sits at the soundboard working his magic. "Beautiful Crazy" may be a new track on Luke’s debut record, but the song has already been a fan favorite at his shows for years.

This One's for You Too will hit store shelves on June 1.

 

Lady Antebellum messed up the national anthem before Game 5 between the Predators and Jets on Saturday night in Nashville. Charles Kelley started singing the wrong verse and Hillary Scott saved him. 

 

American Idol was on last night and America voted the Top 7 down to the Top 5. Before two of the contestants went home they found out all of the Top 7 will go out on tour this summer. Some highlights from last night’s performances were Maddie Pope singing Sheryl Crow’s “If It Makes You Happy”:

 

And my favorite singer on the show Gabby Barrett absolutely killed it when she sang “How Come U Don’t Call Me Anymore” by Prince:

 

And spoiler alert the Top 7 went down to 5 – going on to next week’s show will be Cade Foehner, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Maddie Poppe, Michael J. Woodard, and my fave Gabby Barrett! Sadly my other favorite Catie Turner and Jurnee aren’t moving forward to next week but they will be on the summer tour so they didn’t seem to upset. 

 

Speaking of American Idol tonight on TV Luke Bryan will be on Jimmy Kimmel Live! 

Music City Minute: Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani, Brett Young, Dan + Shay

Mother’s Day is coming up on the 13th and Blake Shelton is already getting asked about his Mother's Day plans for Gwen Stefani! Last year, Blake said he was going to make Gwen pancakes for the special day, and he said it didn’t just make your average pancakes, he spelled out Mom and made a #1 with pancake batter but I kind of thing he was joking.

This year Blake says year he might step his game up and make waffles, but he didn’t sound totally serious about that either. He joked, "It is going to be a huge waffle, because you can only make the squares, so it has to be like Legos. I have to make a crap load of waffles."

 

Usually if you're a singer and you're getting married, people expect you to get up there and do a song right? The pressure's even stronger if it's coming from the person you're marrying. That's what Brett Young is dealing with right now.

The wedding's later this year, and his longtime girlfriend Taylor Mills has been throwing hints. He talked about it in an interview, saying, "I recently got the feeling that she wants me to do at least one song.

"I think it will be really cheesy to do one of mine. So I'm trying to figure out what the cool, subtle thing to do is so that she gets the moment she's looking for. And I don't feel like I totally sold out on my wedding day."

There's a similar thing happening with Brett's father. He's a pastor, but he doesn't want to officiate. Brett said, "He doesn't want to do the wedding. He wants to be AT his son's wedding."

CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s Young interview airs on Saturday and Sunday May 5-6 at 8 a.m.

After hinting at a big surprise all week, Dan + Shay finally ended the suspense with the release of a brand new song called "All To Myself." The song was originally scheduled to drop today, but the overwhelming response from fans prompted them to release it yesterday. The song will be on their upcoming third album. 

Music City Minute: FGL, Tyler Farr, Maren Morris, Eric Church, Military Appreciation Month

A big Happy Birthday to Eric Church he turns 41 today! 

 

A little fun fact about Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line, he’s 31, which is still pretty young. But not so young that he can pound down the whiskey without paying for it the next day. He says, "I'm drinking less. I don't know what's happening. 

He says, "I feel like I'm not a partier anymore. In our 20s, we could drink half a bottle of whiskey and wake up fine, but nowadays it doesn't work like that anymore. I like to try and feel good." 

The subject came up because he and Brian Kelley have teamed up with the USO to launch a “Patriot Pack” version of their Old Camp Whiskey. They released a limited edition bottle of their Old Camp Whiskey for Military Appreciation Month, which will help support military families in partnership with the USO.

 

Speaking of Military Appreciaton Month some of our favorite country artists will perform at the Grand Ole Opry for a Salute the Troops Special. Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler, and Darius Rucker are some of the artists performing May 22nd. There will be two shows. Craig says, "My fellow artists and I are very excited to shake as many family members' hands as we can, say thank you, and offer some of our songs in salute."

Tickets for both shows are on sale now.

A big concert announcement – Tyler Farr will be at Cowboys July 7th tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10am! Here’s his latest song “Love By The Moon”

Maren Morris posted a clip of herself doing an unplugged version of "The Middle” and captioned it "Five Weeks Number One." So naturally she’s got to be proud! We’ll see her tomorrow night at Gruene Hall for a sold out show, and if you still need tickets we have a pair, plus meet & greets coming up at 8:25 today and tomorrow!
