Did you notice that Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany jumped back into the saddle right away to get pregnant again? Their son Memphis was born in December and they announced baby number two earlier this month.
It was no accident. He says, "It was definitely something we had planned. After having our son, we knew we wanted to have two kids. I have my two older daughters already, so we knew we wanted to have another one pretty quick.
"I'd much rather knock it out now while we're used to having one in diapers and formula and all of that. I think it's tougher when you get out of that and wait a couple years and then have to go redo it all. [We] wanted them to be close in age."
They did get some help to make it happen. He adds, quote, "We did In Vitro Fertilization with our son, so we had to do that again with this one."
This is so great. I love stories that show our favorite country singers are just like us and this story proves 100% true with Luke Bryan. He recently ran out of gas during a road trip with his family, and he posted an awesome clip of them sitting in the car.
His wife Caroline is so annoyed in the clip, just like any wife would be. His teenage nephew is staring at his phone, and his two young sons start to argue and take swings at each other. It’s just the best because it shows Luke Bryan and his family are just like the rest of us!
And don’t forget there are some great concerts comin’ up! We announced yesterday Cole Swindell, Dustin Lynch, and Lauren Alaina will be at Whitewater October 20th! Tickets go on sale Friday at 10am, and we’re hookin’ you up with them all week at 8:10 & 3:10!
Plus, Billy Currington will be at Floores October 26th and tickets for that go on sale Friday at 10am!
Turns out Lauren Alaina and her longtime boyfriend Alex Hopkins have decide they're NOT too young to get married after all. They hit up social media over the weekend to announce their engagement.
She posted a photo on Saturday of them kissing and captioned it, "Being yours forever has a nice 'ring' to it. #Hoppily-Ever-Hopkins @AlexHopkins We-Are-Engaged."
He shared the same photo, and wrote, "Ladies and gentleman, may I present to you for the first time, the future Mrs. Lauren Hopkins."
They're both 23 and have been dating since 2012. No word on a wedding date.
Now that Michael Ray and Carly Pearce have come clean about dating, he wants you to know that she's the one who initiated the relationship.
He said, "She did all the work. She slid it into some DMs pretty heavy. I don't know if it's a guy thing, but I don't catch on to hints worth crap."
Even with the hints, he was afraid to go there because they run in the same circles and he didn't want to be wrong and look stupid. He said, "So I'm like, I can't step in… and I didn't know how to approach it."
And then one day SHE laid it out there. He went on to say, "She was like, 'You know we have each other's phone numbers, why don't we just text.' And I'm like 'oh yeah, we do.'"
So, they finally started hanging out and checked out some traditional country at the Nashville Palace. He said, "We went there and it was at that moment for both of us where I thought, 'I'm in love with this girl and she's special.”
And if you missed it we made a HUGE concert announcement this morning – Cole Swindell & Dustin Lynch are coming to Whitewater Amphitheatre with Lauren Alaina Saturday October 20th! Tickets go on sale this Friday the 27th at 10am but we’re hookin’ you up all week with “Win ‘Em Before You Can Buy ‘Em” at 8:10 & 3:10!
Josh Abbott and Taylor Parnell tied the knot in front of 250 family and friends in Brazos Hall in Austin, Texas, on July 8th.After the wedding ceremony, Josh serenaded his new bride with a song he wrote just for her: "Taylor Made for Me.""I wanted to write Taylor a song for this week and for this event, this awesome life moment we get to share with all of you," said Josh. "And I wrote the first verse a few days ago. I wrote the rest of it this morning. And that's how I think it needed to be."
Miranda Lambert and Evan Felker are finally putting it out there for the world to see. There’s a video of them showing some PDA while walking through the streets of New York City on Wednesday.
A source said, "They looked very happy together. They looked closer as the night went on. At one point Evan leaned in for a kiss. When the two let themselves be open, they appeared very comfortable together."
That was the same night Miranda did a couple of songs on "Late Night with Seth Meyers".
They were also in town because the Bandwagon Tour of Miranda, Little Big Town, and Evan's group Turnpike Troubadours performed at Jones Beach Theater on Long Island.
One last thing: It seems that Evan and his estranged wife Staci Felker are still married, although she says she's moving forward.
See the video on Us Weekly’s website here.
It looks like Carly Pearce and Michael Ray are dating. No one's confirmed it, but there are clues. He posted a photo of himself on Instagram, and she commented with a drooling emoji and a fire emoji.
He joked that they should go to Golden Corral, and she responded with "steakhouses are the way to my heart." Okay, that's just flirting, but then this happened.
Somebody asked him about it yesterday during an interview and he tried to be vague, but failed. He said, "I think when it comes time to talk about the dating life, it'll come out. But she's a great girl. I think that she's an incredible person.
"And right now, everything on both ends are about both of our singles and our music and, it'll come out. She's great. I'm a big fan. I'll leave it at that."
And then later in the interview, somebody asked how he spends his time off the road and he seemed to refer to her again. Michael said, "The little bit of free time that we have is spent mainly at my house, not doing too much.
"But, yeah, that's changed a little bit, you know. Some person got added into it, so it's been better. My time off's been better. She's a homebody too, so we connect real well. So a lot of old country music is listened to."
They then posted the same pic to Instagram at midnight last night with a caption of how one random night "changed everything."

Blake Shelton was probably half-joking when he said his on-stage tumble last weekend happened because he drank too much. According to him, he's always drinking too much and it's no big deal.
But it left the door open for people to talk about it, so Wynonna Judd was asked in an interview if a lot of country stars "loosen up" before performing. She's had her own issues with substance abuse so it may have been a way to get her to go there.
Her answer was all over the place, but she did eventually say this: "I love Blake and I get it. I understand that some people do all that.
"I've asked some of the greatest singers, whether it's Tony Bennett or other people, and we all agree that we need all the brain cells we can have onstage. I've worked with so many mavericks [and] I just have seen too many… it didn't end well."
Miranda Lambert fans she’ll be on Late Night with Seth Meyers tonight!
Yesterday we told you about Kenny Chesney falling on stage over the weekend, well it looks like the same thing happened to Blake Shelton! He fell while performing at Oregon's Pendleton Whisky Music Fest on Saturday. It wasn't a very bad fall and he got right back up.
The next day he hit up Twitter with a request, and an excuse, saying, "Okay, Pendleton. I know somebody is bound to have video of me falling on stage. Please. I have to see it. Post that [stuff]. And yes I had been drinking. A lot."
His request was heard and people started putting up clips. There’s one from a distance, and one up close.
And of course there are always haters, one woman tried to shame him for "showing up drunk" and compared him to Justin Bieber throwing up on stage. Which let’s be real, isn’t even comparable.
In true Blake fashion, he responded by writing, "Oh, I'm sorry ma'am. This account is meant for people who actually have a sense of humor. We're not accepting crybaby Tweets today. Maybe try again tomorrow."
Kacey Musgraves fans she announced a new leg of her “Oh, What a World: Tour” yesterday! She’ll be in Austin performing at Stubbs March 9th and 10th and pre-sale tickets are available now, with tickets going on sale to the general public on July 20 at 10 a.m.

The episode, which was tapped before Scotty's recent wedding, features Scotty, wife Gabi, his father-in-law, father and grandmother.
Scotty will be playing SNL alum Chris Kattan and his family, and will be playing for St. Jude Children's Hospital.
And tonight Luke Combs will be on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert!
Kenny Chesney hurt himself while performing Saturday in Kansas City! It wasn't serious because he continued the show, but he did ease up on the running and jumping.
He seemed to have injured his knee or ankle while running across the stage. He started hobbling and limping, and was even seen doubled over in pain.
A fan hit up Twitter with a quick clip of him doing "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy"… and you can see him limping.
As of last night, Kenny hadn't made a statement. According to his tour page, his next show is Thursday in Southaven, Mississippi.
Lady Antebellum was on NBC's “Sunday Today” to promote their Summer Plays On Tour with Darius Rucker. It kicks off Thursday in Toronto.
They covered stuff we already know, like Hillary Scott’s mom is old school country singer Linda Davis… and that Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood have known each other since middle school.
They talked about going on hiatus in 2015 to recharge the batteries, and getting back together last year "reunited and refreshed."
And then the host brought up how they did therapy together, and he didn't know that bands went into group therapy. Charles said, "They should. It helps. [We've] done a lot of it recently while getting into this.
"I do think when bands don't talk and then let out some of that stuff, without an unbiased professional, [it's not good.]" Dave compared the band's therapy to marriage counseling.
Taylor Swift got stuck on a malfunctioning gondola stage prop during a show in Philadelphia on Saturday.
There's a part of her show where she basically flies over the crowd to a secondary stage and performs a few songs.
But this time, the gondola would only go up and down a bit… it wouldn't actually transport her. So, she was lowered back to the main stage, and stopped the show to ask the crew what she should do.
She asked if there was a way for her to walk to the other stage, rather than fly… and wasn't getting a response. While she was waiting, she led the crowd in 'a cappella' versions of a few tracks, like "Our Song".
Eventually, they had her take a second gondola on the other side of the stage to a different stage in the crowd. The rest of the show apparently went okay.
Plan to leave early if you’re traveling on I-35 this weekend! The Texas Department of Transportation shared plans to close all lanes in BOTH directions at Farm-to-Market 1103 in Schertz starting 9:00pm Saturday until 3:00pm Sunday. If you’re going to be driving through this area expect to remain on the frontage road through FM 1103 and re-enter the highway.
The closures will go in effect this weekend due to a $7.2 million project that involves expanding the FM 1103 bridge over I-35 to five lanes and U-turn bridges. The construction is scheduled for completion in summer of 2019.
For more information on closure, check out more from our friends at KENS-5!

One our our favorite women in country music, Cam, released her new song, "Road To Happiness" and says she has her own definition of the word. She says, "I've met unhappy successful people and happy 'unsuccessful' people. There's no one road to happiness, it doesn't exist, it's an illusion. Happiness is now and it's up to you to feel it in the moment. This song is me working through all this, and trying to be present and happy in my own way."You can see Cam opening for Sam Smith next Saturday in Austin.

Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini and Luke Bryan are cooking something up. What? We don't know yet.Over the course of the last 24 hours, all three artists have posted individual photos on Instagram--without captions--that depict their faces created on landscapes, kind of like you would see in a corn maze. Some fans have theorized that Jason and Kelsea may be joining Luke on his six-date Farm Tour (Sept. 27-29 and Oct. 4-6), but Kelsea is busy opening for Keith Urban's Graffiti U Tour each of the six dates of Farm Tour, and Jason has existing performances listed on his tour schedule that coincide with dates on Luke's Farm Tour. So we have no idea, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon!
