Music City Minute: Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, FGL, *NSYNC, & Sugarland 

One person you don’t want to mess with when it comes to hockey is Carrie Underwood. As we know, she’s married to Mike Fisher, who is currently in the middle of a playoff series with his team the Nashville Predators, against the Winnipeg Jets.

Well. it looks like Carrie Underwood has been given a challenge by pro wrestler Chris Jericho. It turns out Chris’s Dad was a pro NHL player and he’s a super fan of the Winnipeg Jets and recently posted a challenge to Carrie on Instagram that says, “A $10,000 bet as to which team would win the second-round Stanley Cup Playoff series.”

Chris went on to say, “If she’s a proud Nashville Predators fan, half as much as she claims to be, she’ll have no problem doing a friendly wager,” even mentioning the money could go to charity, which sounds friendly right!? Well, then he went on to say Carrie is “married to a fourth line bench warmer” – surely this is all in the spirit of good old-fashioned rivalry fun, but maybe he crossed the line? We’ll keep you posted.

Carrie hasn’t responded yet.

 

The drama continues! Blake Shelton sent the rumor mill spinning last week when he posted a tweet saying, "Been taking the high road for a long time...I almost gave up. But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!! Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It's karma!!"  

Of course this lead to a lot of people self-interpreting Blake's tweet thinking it was in response to rumors that Miranda is dating Turnpike Troubadours lead singer Evan Felker, who reportedly filed for divorce from his wife in February. But, Blake says ya’ll ain’t even close:Blake Shelton: "If it was meant for people to know exactly what it meant, it wouldn't have been so cryptic. Why would I say that? But I can tell you it's been, actually, very entertaining to watch the world run with it and assume what they think it's about."

Florida Georgia Line has been working hard on their fourth album and Tyler says each album has a certain evolution: (Tyler Hubbard) "I think it's pretty simple. I think with every album we do we just try to evolve as our life has, try to write the best songs that we possibly can and find the best songs that we possibly can between the last album and the current album, and just record the best songs that we can find."

And in other news, by the way this totally classifies as country news because Justin Timberlake is from Tennessee. *NSYNC along with Justin Timberlake were on the “Ellen” show yesterday and played a heated game of “Never Have I Ever”. Justin admitted that he once hooked up with a Spice Girl! He didn't say which one, but in a 2004 interview, Emma Bunton who was “Baby Spice” pretty much admitted it was her. 

 

And tonight make sure you watch Jimmy Kimmel Live, Sugarland will be on the show! 

Music City Minute: Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Jake Owen, Shania Twain 

Kenny Chesney fans time to get excited! Yesterday Kenny announced his new album will be called Songs for the Saints and we can get it July 27. Kenny says the album will be reflective of a lot of the things he's been through since the release of his last record in 2016, with much of its inspiration coming from Hurricane Irma and the destruction it caused throughout the Caribbean islands last year, including damage to his own home on the U.S. Virgin Island of St. John. Kenny says the album is about the troubles people have in their lives and the courage and resilience they show in the wake of adversity.

 

Yesterday we told you about the drama going on between Miranda Lambert and her new boyfriend and Turnpike Troubadors singer Evan Felker. Evan’s ex-wife has been posting on social media and some are saying it’s making Miranda look like a homewrecker. Well now the gossip that’s going around is that Miranda’s boyfriend Evan "full-on ghosted" his wife when the “Livin' Like Hippies” Tour ended, they were an opening act on the tour.

A source said he skipped his flight back home to Oklahoma, and sent an email to his wife saying, "I'm not coming home this week." Then the ghosting started. The source is also saying there was no idea that he was planning to divorce his wife before he met Miranda.

Thomas Rhett learned the hard way that even artists who are a part of the tour need to have a backstage pass. One night he went into the crowd to watch the opening act. Well, while he was roaming around they changed security guards.

When he returned the guards didn't know who he was and needed to see his pass. He said, "I'm trying to point at the poster in the hallway like, 'hey, that's like my face and I have to get back there because I'm about to start.'

"And I literally didn't get back there until like one minute before my show went on. So it really taught me to keep up with a laminate and the pass."

Shania Twain and Jake Owen are co-hosting a singing competition called "Real Country". It'll tape this summer in Nashville and debut in the fall on the USA Network. Shania and Jake will hand-select artists to perform in showcases… and the best ones from each showcase will perform in a grand finale. 

Music City Minute: Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, American Idol 

Carrie Underwood has proven she is the Nashville Predators hockey team's good luck charm, last night she sang the National Anthem at the Pred's playoff home game against the Jets and the team won in overtime 5-4!

The Predators and the Winnipeg Jets started their second-round series on Friday, and Dierks Bentley and fellow Grand Ole Opry member Del McCoury sang the National Anthem. 

Miranda Lambert is worried that people are labeling her a "homewrecker" for dating Turnpike Troubadours singer Evan Felker… because he's still married. She feels it's not fair. 

A source said, "The way Miranda tells it, things were already over when they started hooking up, and, you can't help who you fall in love with." 

Miranda thinks some of the bad press is being stirred-up by Evan's ex, who's taken her case to social media. The source said, "She thinks it's unfortunate that Staci's making a public show out of this and implying she's a homewrecker."

The ex posted a selfie last week that she captioned, "PSA: If Staci Felker can make it through this week, so can you."

And a friend of Staci's posted a clip of them at a bar singing along to "Before He Cheats". The friend does the lyric, "Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats." Staci adds, "I hope he does." It's captioned, "Cheaters never prosper."

 

Last night was a big night for American Idol – the top 10 performed and it was Disney themed! Katy Perry dressed up as Snow White and Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie both had pins with the name of one of the Seven Dwarfs on them. Luke’s button said “Dopey” and Loinel’s said “Happy”.

 

It seemed like everyone did great last night on the show but two big favorites were Gabby Barrett, an 18-year-old who is known for leaning towards country and has a love of Carrie Underwood chose to sing a song from Pocahonatas “Colors of the Wind”.

 

Another country favorite is 19-year-old Caleb Lee Hutchinson, who has actually lost 70 pounds since auditioning! He sang “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” from the iconic movie Toy Story

 

Unfortunately, three contestants went home last night Ada Vox, Dennis Lorenzo, and Michelle Sussett.

Mason Ramsey’s New Song “Famous” Is Adorable! 

(From NME) Mason Ramsey has released his debut single ‘Famous’, less than a month after the 11-year-old was catapulted to worldwide fame.

Ramsey became a online sensation after he was filmed performing a brilliantly unique rendition of Hank Williams’ ‘Lovesick Blues’ in the aisles of his local Wal-Mart in Illinois.

The performance transformed Ramsey into a star, resulting in an appearance on ‘Ellen’, as well as a surprise performance at Coachella – where he met Justin Bieber.

Now, he’s released his debut single, and it’s a laid back country track that sees the youngster reflecting on his new-found fame.

Music City Minute: Keith Urban, Kane Brown, Mason Ramsey, Maren Morris 

It’s new music Friday! Keith Urban’s new album “Graffiti U” comes out today and Keith says his plan of attack was to have no plan at all:(Keith Urban) "There's all kind of colors on this record very much like seeing us in concert. And, I look at the studio like a blank canvas, and I just start painting on it. You know, no preconceived ideas, no...There was really no anything other than going in and start being in the moment and just seeing what happens." Here’s a clip of the song “Parallel Line” that’s on the album, his wife Nicole Kidman decided to jump in and help him out with a little background vocals. It’s super sweet. 

Kane Brown is the latest country singer who's teamed up with a pop star for a cross-genre duet. Pop singer Camila Cabello teamed up with Kane for a remix of her hit single "Never Be the Same"

Kane joins a long list of recent country-pop collaborations, including Maren Morris with Zedd, Florida Georgia Line with Bebe Rexha, Chris Lane with Tori Kelly and Chris Stapleton with Justin Timberlake.

You remember the 11-year-old Walmart yodeling boy Mason Ramsey right? Well, he’s making his dreams come true, first he performed at the Grand Ole Opry and now it looks like he has a record deal with Big Loud Records, the same label as Jake Owen and Chris Lane. His brand new song is called “Famous” and was co-written by Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line. 

 

Nearly two years after the release of her debut studio album, Hero, Maren Morris is heading back into the studio to record her follow up project. Maren teased the new project yesterday, sharing a picture of her hand covering the album's track listing which had been written down on piece of paper. Appearing above the track listing are the words "MM2 Studio Days," with the caption simply reading, "She's ready to record."

Music City Minute: Blake & Miranda, Kane Brown, Maren Morris 

The drama is back between Blake & Miranda, or is it!? Blake tweeted yesterday that many are interpreting as a dig at Miranda. While Blake doesn't specify who the tweet is about, a lot of people think it's in response to new rumors that Miranda is dating Turnpike Troubadours lead singer Evan Felker, who reportedly filed for divorce from his wife in February. Turnpike Troubadours performed a few shows on Miranda "Livin' Like Hippies Tour" in February, shortly before gossip surfaced that Miranda and her boyfriend of two years, Anderson East, had split.  

Hopefully you're liking the country - pop crossover thing, because it's not going away. Kane Brown is on a remix of pop singer Camila Cabello’s song “Never Be The Same” and it'll be out tomorrow. 

We can add that that to the Zedd with Maren Morris & Grey song "The Middle” & the Bebe Rexha - Florida Georgia Line hit "Meant to Be."

To hold you over here’s a clip of what seems like will be another single he’s working on:

 

Speaking of Maren Morris she just shared a video of their wedding on her Instagram – it’s so great, it’s like we were all at the wedding with them! The caption reads, “One month ago, I married my best friend and we threw a kickass wedding. Hope y’all enjoy. 🎥: @alexmferrari 💍💍”

 

WATCH: Brothers Osborne Perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

The guys in Brothers Osborne stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this week (Monday 4/23) where they performed, “Shoot Me Straight”, a song from their new ‘Port Saint Joe’ album. The guys even hung out with the  comedy duo of Cheech & Chong backstage... and left with an interesting “gift” from the pair. Check out Brothers Osborne’s performance and “present” below!

Music City Minute: Jason Aldean, Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood, Maddie & Tae

Jason Aldean's new Rearview Town album has earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard's all-genre Top 200 Album chart, making Jason only the second country act in history to score four consecutive chart-toppers. Rearview Town also sold 183,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release, giving Jason the biggest country debut of 2018. The album is also the first country project to earn an all-genre No. 1 this year.

Seeing the album score a historic debut on the all-genre chart is great news for Jason, but there's another reason why he wanted to get this music out to fans: 

Jason Aldean: "Once the album is finally out and you can go out and play those songs, it's great for us because you can look and get a gauge of the reaction it's getting' from people. You know, I mean, you can kind of read people a little bit. So, I love testing that stuff out. I love going and playing the new songs, and I'm excited to be able to play it for 'em."

 

On Friday, Maren Morris became the latest country star to sing the national anthem at a Nashville Predators home playoff game. She sang before the Preds and the Colorado Avalanche met in Game 5 of the First Round of the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

 

As the Nashville Predators continue their playoff bit moving closer to the cup, Carrie Underwood recalls the excitement of 2017 when the Preds played in the final for the Stanley Cup: 

Carrie Underwood: "To see how much Nashville loves the Predators was just incredible. and the town was absolutely electric the few weeks leading up to the final especially during that last week or so. To see 100,000 people lining Broadway, I mean, that was incredible."

 

Maddie and Tae are back! After nearly two years since their last single, they announced their new song "Friends Don't" will be out Friday. Here a clip of the song below!

They wrote on Instagram about the new song, "Keeping this a secret has been one of the hardest things we've ever done haha but we wanted this release to be extra special for y'all (our sweet, sweet fans). Thank you for being so patient & supportive. You'll never truly know how much that has meant to us. Gosh we love y'all."

Music City Minute: Brothers Osborne, Jon Pardi, Brantley Gilbert, Carrie Underwood 

Doesn’t it kinda seem like the singers in country music love playing pranks on each other? Well, that happened over the weekend, Brothers Osborne played a prank on their friend and former tourmate Jon Pardi. The guys decided to make a play of Jon’s last name, and superimposed his face on a photo of rapper Cardi B and captioned it “Pardi B” the resulted is pretty amazing. 

Of course it’s all in good fun, Jon Pardi hasn’t commented back yet, which means he’s likely working on his own prank to pay back the brothers. 

Brantley Gilbert is the proud owner of a deer farm in Alabama, and you can go hunting there! It's called Countrywide Whitetails and it features 433 acres that are "high-fenced." 

They sell packages that include lodging, three meals a day, transportation to and from the stand, professional guides on your hunt… plus game cleaning and taxidermy prep. There's even a fully stocked fishing pond.

The coolest part about Brantley’s deer farm is that he made it accessible so wounded veterans can go hunting. He even built a wheelchair friendly lodge.

 

Here's very proud of that and explains the story of the first vet he had out on the farm:

“The deer farm is awesome. We got to bring our first vet out. Fella’s name was Darrell Wallace. He’s a double amputee with an amazing story; his family was amazing; they’re just awesome people, but he came out to the farm and he killed a hundred sixty something inch buck – killed a massive buck. And we had a great time. I let his son shoot one too. It was a lot of fun. It was a great time. And we’re looking forward to doing more of that next year.”

Carrie Underwood posted a photo of herself getting ready to cheer on her husband Mike Fisher and the Nashville Predators. People are saying it's a close-up pic with a clear view of the scar above her lip. I don’t notice anything, but I'm thinking she wanted to let everybody get a good look so we can all move on and stop talking about it.

Speaking of Carrie Underwood, yesterday she posted a picture of her parents on Instagram with the caption, “Today, we celebrated my parents’ 50th anniversary...We listened to stories of how they met and their first years together...the good Lord sure did bless them...and us! ❤️❤️❤️ I think these crazy kids are gonna make it!”

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.

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!

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.

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.
