Taylor Swift asked Sugarland to record a song she wrote called "Babe," so they invited her to sing on it! It's their second single and latest release from their upcoming album Bigger.

Taylor wrote "Babe" with Train frontman Pat Monahan — and it's the only song on Sugarland's Bigger album that the country duo did not write, but one they knew they needed to record. The Bigger album will be their first studio release in nearly eight years, and comes out June 8th! 

In an interview yesterday Carrie Underwood talked about the infamous fall that broke her wrist and left her with a scar on her face. 

It happened when she was walking the dogs and tripped on the porch. ***CLIP S262*** She tried to catch herself with her right hand but missed the step. She said she landed, "Around my mouth." She was thinking "busted lip" until she looked in the mirror. 

She ended up getting some 40 stitches… but at least she had time on her side.

She said, "I was lucky that when it happened everything was shutting down in the music world [because] of the holidays. But I was at a point where I didn't know how things were going to end up. I didn't know what it was going to heal like."

She admits hiding the scar with makeup, but she won't pretend it never happened. Carrie says, "I don't know if I'll ever be done talking about it, because it was an event in my life and I'm okay talking about it."

Music City Minute: Carrie Underwood, Cam, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Young 

Carrie Underwood fans new music is on the way! She announced the release of her sixth studio album, Cry Pretty, will be out September 14th. Carrie says, at this point in her career, she feels stronger and more creative than ever, and thinks that will translate in her new music. And says the album "Is emotional, it's soulful, it's real, and we also have some fun on there too. I hope everyone loves it as much as I have loved making it."

Cam before back at the rodeo in February and has been a busy woman lately! She recently performanced on American Idol and the Late Late Show with James Corden, She just announced her first headlining show at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. The show will take place on September 26 and will include singer-songwriter Lucie Silvas as the special guest. Tickets go on sale to the public tomorrow at 10 AM! 

 

It seems like everyone loves Kelsea Ballerini, well recently someone asked her how she manages to be so friendly and open with just about everybody. She said it's because of a promise she made to herself when she signed her record deal back when she was 19. 

She said, "I promised myself that I would be the same person on stage as I was out to dinner with my friends, as I was on Instagram. I never wanted anyone to see me anywhere and be disappointed, if that makes sense." It all makes sense why we love her so much, she’s just like us!

 

Brett Young recently got engaged and quickly figured out the key to planning a successful wedding ***CLIP S261*** he says he and his fiancée Taylor are still in the early stages of wedding planning and they are working on nailing down a date and location. It’s looking like November because of his touring schedule. 

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.

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!

The 53rd ACM Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday at 7:00 PM ET on CBS.

 

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.

Update on Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood posted a blog with an update on her recovery, her time with family, and her new music coming out on Wednesday! 

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. 

 

Music City Minute: Dustin Lynch, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Cam 

Dustin Lynch found a creative way to thank Brad Paisley for bringing him along as an opener on the Weekend Warrior Tour. He gifted him with a live Nigerian Dwarf goat.

At their show on Friday, Dustin Lynch gifted Brad Paisley with a live goat as a thank you for being part of his tour. The "G.O.A.T." stands for "greatest of all time," which is how he describes Brad.

The goat was on a leash and they took turns holding it until Dustin's official presentation. 

Dustin named it Telly because of Brad's love for Telecaster guitars. 

Brad made it clear he wanted to keep Telly because his kids would give him a hard time if he didn't. And he was right, because after the show his son Jasper was seen cuddling it.

 

Turns out the rumors are true! Miranda Lambert and Anderson East have broken up. But no need to be sad just yet, sources are saying the door isn't completely closed.

A source says, "They have spent a lot of time apart, but potentially could end up back together. The love is still there."

I’m sure it’s hard to be a couple when one of you is spending a lot of time on the road, and even tougher when you're both off in different directions.

Miranda and Anderson were together a little over two years before the called it quits. 

Speaking of Miranda Lambert she’s been busy working on a song with Jason Aldean. Jason’s new album Rearview Town will feature a duet with Miranda called “Drowns the Whiskey”, but this isn’t their first song together. 

Jason Aldean says, "We did a song together on my second record called 'Grown Woman' that was to me probably my favorite song on that album, andI just kind of wanted to do something else with her. I've always been a big fan of her voice and her style and everything."“Rearview Town” comes out this Friday.

Something beautiful happened over the weekend, Cam performed with Sam Smith in London! They sang a song she co-wrote together called “Palace” and it was amazing, she posted it on her Instagram live. Also, over the weekend she put out a simple yet amazing version of her singing the song. 

And tonight on TV don’t forget “American Idol” comes on at 7pm on ABC, the Top 24 Duets – and on “The Voice” will also be on at 7pm on NBC, Part 3 of the Knockouts!

Music City Minute: Dustin Lynch, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Cam 

Music City Minute: Dustin Lynch, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Cam 

Music City Minute: Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Reba

Kenny Chesney fans, new music is here! Kenny released a brand new song today called “Get Along” that he feels is perfect for the world right now:

You remember a while back we told you Reba was the new Colonel Sanders for KFC, well we’ve been loving it but there’s someone who is hating on Reba! Can you believe that!? Roseanne Barr has thrown a little shade Reba's way, she claims that she'd be a better KFC Colonel than Reba. Rosanne tweeted, "I do not believe that Reba eats fried chicken! [Especially] from the Colonel!" Well, as you can imagine, many of Reba's fans didn't agree with the her and took to Twitter to defend Reba. How can’t anyone be mean to Reba!? 

 

Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany had their little more Memphis in December but recently Brittany opened up about the difficulties they experienced while trying to get pregnant in a Babes & Babies podcast.

She said they tried for a year and a half to get pregnant. She went on to say, "No one knows this, but we had to do In Vitro Fertilization. It was a rollercoaster process and I ended up having endometriosis."

She had a procedure to get rid of that, but there are never guarantees. Brittany explained, "So it was like, if this doesn't work… I was considering a surrogate. We were thinking about all the options."

Despite everything, she and Jason are definitely going to try again. Brittany says, "We want one more. I feel like the sooner the better. You're already doing the diaper thing, why don't we just knock out."

So it sounds like they could be trying again very soon, and of course we’ll keep you posted! 

 

Keith Urban fans he finally updated us on his new album! He revealed the track list and told us "Graffiti U" will be out April 27th.

 

Music City Minute: Kip Moore, Carrie Underwood, First Tweets

Kip Moore is making one young fan's dream come true through a partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. During a surprise FaceTime call with a 15-year-old fan named Sydney, Kip invited her to the ACM Party for a Cause: Stoney's Tailgate Party on April 13. Sydney will get VIP treatment at the pre-ACM Awards concert, with backstage access and even get to hang out with Kip and his band. Sydney could hardly contain her excitement when Kip invited her to the show, and it looks like he is equally as excited to meet her. 

Carrie Underwood fans it’s been just about three years since the release of her last studio album, Storyteller, Carrie Underwood appears to be back in the studio working on new music. Carrie hinted at the new project on Wednesday morning, posting a black-and-white photo of her sitting in front of a studio soundboard. The captionless photo was also the first picture Carrie has shared of her full face since taking a serious fall outside of her home last November. Remember when she fell it left her with a broken wrist and more than 40 facial stitches. 

Speaking of Carrie Underwood she wasn't happy about the officiating during the Nashville Predators' Tuesday night loss to the Florida Panthers. She took to Twitter after the game to say she was "livid" after a last minute goal was disallowed due to an interference call. It was initially called a goal on the ice, but was later taken back after replay officials deemed that another Nashville player came in contact with the goalie prior to the score. In one of her tweets, Carrie wrote, "Biggest pile of [poop emoji] ever! Preds we're straight up robbed." And Carrie’s husband, Mike Fisher, who plays for the team, had the perfect response to her tweet, saying, "If there's one thing I've learned it's you're always right." And in Carrie’s defense she a lot of Predators fans thought the call was bogus too.

 

CMT did some digging and came up with a collection of country stars' first Tweets. The first ones were posted in 2008 and they were boring, introductory-type messages like this: "Welcome to the official Twitter page of Dierks Bentley.” 

Lady Antebellum kicked it into promo mode that year with this one: "Our new single is 'Lookin' For A Good Time'. Make sure you call up your local radio station and request it." Okay seems pretty standard.

Then there’s Jake Owen's first Tweet in 2009, it was a picture of his tour bus rug, which he captioned, "Rug." Also that year Little Big Town had a random first tweet that said: "Not sure what's better, though, her strawberry pie or chocolate cake?"

This one's great though. It's from Kelsea Ballerini on June 4th, 2009, which means she was only 15 years old when she tweeted, "If I write another song today there is a good chance my fingers will physically detach themselves from my hand."

But I think my favorite “first tweet” from a country singer is Thomas Rhett’s first Tweet in 2009 that said, "Get me some meatloaf." 

Music City Minute: Russell Dickerson, Kenny Chesney, Cam, Jason Aldean, Reba 

We all love Russell Dickerson’s song “Yours” – well recently he did one of those rapid-fire question and answer sessions and we learned some pretty interesting stuff!

One of the things was that he planned the coolest date he ever for his wife, guys listen up! Russell says, "For her birthday one year we rented a cabin out in the woods and I stalked her Pinterest page and I cooked all of her top pins."

He also shared his tips for marriage, he said, "It just takes a little effort. Go out on a date night. Stay out a little late. Order that extra bottle of champagne because you know you want to."

 

Kenny Chesney fans new music is coming! He’ll release a new song Friday called "Get Along", and the title is deeper than you might think. He described the song by saying, "Some days it's like the world is just angry, screaming people, all harping on what's wrong, how other people are awful. We keep getting driven apart and made unhappy. When I heard this song I was amazed how simply they broke all this down. Get along, find common ground, know the basic stuff is where the joy, the love and the happiness is." Which I think is something we all could use a little more of these days. 

 

 

In case you missed it: Cam performed her song "Diane" on yesterday's "Good Morning America". It's a response to Dolly Parton's classic "Jolene", so they played a clip of Dolly giving her a surprise message. Dolly said, quote, "You did good on that. I wish I could be there in person, but I'll be watching you on TV."

 

I love when women share real life stuff like Jason’s wife Brittany, she posted a clip of them in the hospital room AS she's having contractions for their son Memphis, who was born December 1st. Despite being in monumental pain in the video she's giving Jason a hard time for flipping through the TV channels trying to get the hospital TV ready for the National Championship game. 

 

It looks like Reba and her boyfriend are becoming inseparable! She posted another adorable photo a few days ago. The caption reads, "Skeeter and I had a blast in Wyoming this week. Snowshoeing in the Tetons. Absolutely gorgeous. #Too-Much-Fun."

Music City Minute: Brantley Gilbert, Jason Aldean, 11-Year-Old Goes Viral!

Brantley Gilbert is known for his longstanding commitment to U.S. veterans and continues to support them. He now has partnered with the Pedigree brand to give companion dogs to eight veterans at various stops on his "The Ones That Like Me Tour" this spring. The partnership was formed earlier this year after Brantley talked with experts on the best way to help service people trying to cope with re-acclimation. Brantley will be presenting a vet with a companion dog during every weekend of his tour.As part of their collaboration, Pedigree will work with Custom Canine Unlimited to transport and train all eight dogs, as well as provide a one-year supply of Pedigree dog food to ensure each companion and veteran get off to a great start together.

 

We've all heard country singers say that being rich and famous will never change who they are. And I believe most of them… especially Jason Aldean. He's convinced he's the same guy today that he was growing up in Macon, Georgia. 

Just another reason we love Jason Aldean, he just seems so down to earth. He says, "It doesn't matter how many cars you drive. It's all nice stuff to have, but underneath it all, you are who you are, and you're from where you're from. 

"If you're from a little farm town and you grew up working on a farm, I don't care what you do from here on out . . . you're going to remember that."

He went on to say, "I think part of the way you stay connected is you sing those songs and people think, 'That guy is just like us,' because I was, I am, and I'm still that guy." 

 

 

Another adorable country boy has gone viral! They call him "Little Hank" in his hometown, he’s 11-year-old and quickly gained the nickname "Walmart Boy"- his name is Mason Ramsey and he’s gone viral for yodeling inside a Walmart!

This isn’t Mason’s first rodeo, he’s been entertaining audiences for as long as he could hold a guitar at age six! He was the 2016 winner of the Kentucky Opry Talent Search, Beginner Division and of course with his new found viral fame, he’s expected to go far!

Music City Minute: Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett, Sugarland, Taylor Swift

Maren Morris is still on her honeymoon in Bora Bora and of course she’s having the best time ever! She’s been sharing a bunch of pics on her Instagram that would make anyone jealous. She’s shared photos of herself and her new hubby Ryan is bathing suits, there’s a picture of him swimming in a pool with stingrays, and one of him looking happy on the beach. She even graced us with a photo of their delicious breakfast on the water.

Thomas Rhett posted an adorable photo of his young family. He and his wife Lauren are with their two daughters, Ada James and Willa Gray, who are wearing bunny ears. He captioned it, "Happy Easter. I hope everyone is having an amazing Sunday with their family and friends."

 

Sugarland fans the wait is over! They finally revealed the release date of their first new album in seven years they said, "We have some BIG news to share. Our new album 'Bigger' is coming your way on June 8th."

 

On Saturday Taylor Swift returned to her roots in Nashville and made a surprise appearance at Bluebird Café. She told stories, performed songs, and drank Fireball! 

She was brought on stage by a guy named Craig Wiseman. He's a songwriter who's written hits for Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, and Tim McGraw. He and Taylor wrote together back when she was 17 years old.

She told a great story about a song she was working on back then, and asked him to finish it with her. But he "didn't get it" so they wrote something else.

She said, "I couldn't stop thinking about the idea. I thought there was something to it. I really liked it. [So], this is the song I almost wrote with Craig Wiseman. It's called 'Love Story'." So basically she shared with everyone that Craig Wiseman didn’t understand her idea for the song ‘Love Story’ so she wrote it herself.
