Music City Minute: Luke Bryan, RaeLynn, & Blake Shelton

PETA is upset that Luke Bryan gave his wife two kangaroos for Christmas. In a statement, PETA Vice President Colleen O'Brien said that baby kangaroos "belong in their mothers' pouches, not in gift bags" adding that "these joeys have complex needs, including specialized diets and room to roam-they are not toys and will only become more difficult to care for as they grow older." PETA is also calling for an investigation into where Luke acquired these kangaroos from and stands ready to help country star "right this wrong and move these vulnerable marsupials to a reputable sanctuary." So all of that sounds legit right, like no one should be gifting their wives random kangaroos, but when I looked into this further, it’s not even like that. The kangaroos were the latest animal additions to Brett's Barn, a special project that Caroline started in memory of the couple's baby niece, Sadie Brett, who passed away in February from health complications at the age of seven months. With their Brett's Barn project, the couple had hoped to honor their late niece by ultimately working with local charities to bring kids out to see the animals.

 

This is so sad! RaeLynn is calling on fans to help find her lost dog, Dolly, who ran off her tour bus on New Year's night due to the loud fireworks outside. RaeLynn was playing a show in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area of East Tennessee when her dog went missing, and she's asking for people in that area to be on the lookout. The pup is a small, tan colored Chihuahua, who RaeLynn says she can't imagine being without. 

She updated her Instagram 11 hours ago and said, UPDATE: the last time she was spotted was this morning cuddled up in a blanket on someone’s porch in pigeon forge. When they went to grab her she bolted. Someone again saw her around 11:30am. I got here around 3pm from Nashville to lay out her beds and blankets from home. I am so thankful she is still alive and praying that she will be attracted from the scent of her bed. @theislandpf sent out there amazing team to help. It’s been a long day of ups and downs. Please keep praying for her return. 🙏

 

We’ll keep you posted!

Music City Minute: Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, & New Year’s Celebrations!

Carrie Underwood has revealed even more details about that "hard fall" she took on her front porch back in November. That's the one where she broke her wrist and had to have surgery.

Well, she told her fan club members on Sunday that the fall caused severe cuts to her face that required stitches.

She said, quote, "I'll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [my husband] Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in."

It sounds like Carrie didn't want to tell anyone because she wanted to heal first and then see what it looked like. But she's admitting now that although she's on the mend, she's also "not quite looking the same."

You may remember seeing her face in that photo of her at the gym from a couple of weeks ago. But after looking at it again it's pretty clear that she's hiding her left side.

It was a Christmas miracle for Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line and his wife Hayley. They welcomed their little girl Olivia Rose into the world and Tyler said, “I had no idea I could love somebody as much as I love @hayley_hubbard but last night God gave us Olivia Rose 🌹 and melted our hearts. We love this little girl more than words can describe and it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet. Our life has been forever been changed for the better. Y’all go check out our story on @people (link in bio). I can’t wait to share more photos with y’all. I’ll try to contain myself from being the annoying parent that post 50 pics a day but I’ve already taken over 100 so forgive me.”

 

New Year’s was a festive time for everyone including a lot of our favorite country stars including Jake Owen, Jennifer Nettles, Thomas Rhett, Hillary Scott, Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann and Lauren Alaina.

Music City Minute: Brett Young, Kelsea Ballerini, FGL Baby Update!

Christmas can sometimes bring out weird family traditions. Brett Young admits he has an obsession with a certain movie, and I think a lot of people will agree with him.

He says, "Every single year I can't stop watching the 24 hours of 'A Christmas Story' on Christmas Eve. It has to be on literally for the full 24 hours. It's always running. We'll have three meals and it'll still be running."

He also says he’s not a big baker but he definitely has to make certain things around the holidays.

 

This is such a cute story! When Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini were pronounced husband and wife December 2nd on the beach in Cabo San Lucas, the young newlyweds and their 100 guests toasted with a tequila shot.

Kelsea says, yes “It’s a little bit different, but that’s how we started.”

They met back in March 2016 when they cohosted an award show in his native Australia, and sparks flew instantly at the afterparty.

“He was like, ‘Let’s take a shot,'” Kelsea says, “I remember taking that shot and putting it down and looking at him like, ‘Oh…he’s superhot.’ Later that night he leaned over and asked if he could kiss me, like a proper gentleman, and I said yes.” Kelsea also shared their first dance song was “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri.

It’s baby season! Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany just had their son Memphis and soon Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line will have his little girl with his wife Hayley.

Their little girl already has a ton of pink fur and leopard coats, she’s definitely going to be stylish.  See the gallery of nursery photos here! 

Music City Minute: Country Christmas Carolers, Kacey Musgraves, & ACM News!

Kacey Musgraves told "Entertainment Weekly" that her next album will be called "Golden Hour"… and it'll be out sometime early next year. 

She also revealed that she recorded it at Sheryl Crow’s home studio, which is above her horse stable. She said Sheryl would stop in once in a while to hang out and drink some beer. 

Kacey said, "She has Guinness on tap, so she would have one with us. We ended up talking about reincarnation one night and getting so heady. I was like, 'This is amazing.' It set the tone."

Kacey says, she allowed herself to wear several different masks on the album.

"There's the lonely girl, the blissful girl, the new wife, the girl that's missing her mom, the angry girl, the sarcastic girl, the '60s-sequined Cruella de Vil with the beehive, the shy girl, the life of the party, the winner, the loser.

"They're all characters on this record. None of them alone are me, but the 'Golden Hour' is when they all come together and you see me as a whole."

 

The ACMs have announced some early details about next year's show. The "53rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards" will be going down April 15th in Vegas. It'll be held at the MGM Grand and it'll air on CBS. There's no word yet about who will be hosting or performing. Check for updates at ACMCountry.com.

 

Imagine hearing Christmas Carolers outside your door and you open it up to see your favorite country superstars and their wives. Happened in Nashville on Monday when Thomas Rhett, Russell Dickerson, and Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard brought the holiday songbooks and rang at least one doorbell.

Music City Minute: Florida Georgia Line, Justin Moore, & Sugarland

Florida Georgia Line fan’s they’re expanding their brand with the announcement of a multifaceted creative compound built in the heart of Nashville's booming entertainment community. The guys envisioned it as a combination of retail, creative, and business space, the compound will include three main components: the TRIBE KELLEY TRADING POST, the world headquarters of TREE VIBEZ MUSIC, and an inspired new private meeting/event space concept called MEET + GREET. 

Tyler Hubbard said, "We're so excited to build and create a space for professionals to feel inspired and creative. We hope to bring something new and innovative to Nashville." Brian Kelley agreed, "Passionate people inspire other passionate people. We thrive on letting our imaginations run wild and can't wait to see what this city dreams up together."

 

Justin Moore may be a famous country singer but when it comes to parenting life around the holiday’s his life is just like anyone else’s. He’s all too familiar with the struggle of trying to get 4 children between the ages of just a few months old to 7 years old to pose with Santa for a picture. He says, "Well, it's a crap shoot each and every year, you know. I mean, a two-year-old takes it totally different than a three-year-old and a six-year-old and a seven-year-old. So, each year it's fun to see that too because you never know, they may be completely great about it and happy about it or they may just lose their mind. So, you just never know with our bunch."

 

Newly reunited duo Sugarland are set to perform as part of the 2018 edition of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve. The duo recently announced new music and a big 2018 tour. After the NYE announcement that Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will take the stage during the beloved New Year's Eve tradition in New York City at Times Square.

Nick Jonas and Camilla Cabello have also been tapped to perform during the legendary New Year's show.

Speaking of Sugarland they finally let us in on when we can expect new music.The first single in more than six years is called “Still The Same” and will be available on the 21st. Jennifer Nettles says "The title of the song is so meaningful to us as we want fans to know, we are still the same, we are still the same Sugarland they've known and loved." Kristian Bush adds, "We want to finish where we left off. We always knew [we] were going to make music again, so this has been the best of both worlds." 

Music City Minute: Jana Kramer, Garth Brooks, Thomas Rhett 

In an Instagram post on Saturday, Jana Kramer revealed that she suffered a miscarriage… and it's not her first. She posted a photo of herself holding an ultrasound and wrote, "Today, I am one for three."

Sadly, the "one for three" means she's had two miscarriages. Her daughter Jolie Rae is 22 months old.

Here's some of what she wrote, "I debated posting this for the exact reason why it's a silent struggle. I don't want 'I'm sorry' or sympathy. I just don't want to feel alone, and I know I'm not. This unfortunately isn't my first loss.

"When I first found out I was pregnant I wanted to shout it from the rooftop but I know for reasons like this we have to wait. So because we don't tell many, we have to suffer silently… and suffering silently was my thing in the past, but it's not now."

She also offered support to other women who have miscarried, saying she's there if they need a safe place. And she shared a post from her friend's blog that she turned to for inspiration. Go to the blog. 

 

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood have been married since 2005 -- so that makes yesterday their 12th anniversary. However, as most fans know, they’ve been friends for even longer than that. The pair sang together on countless Garth hits, and were frequent touring partners while both were married to other people and Garth just continues to gush over Trisha after all these years saying, “She’s that funny, she’s that many different women, she never gets old, if you’ve been around her she’s entertaining as can be, she’s unbelievable just to stare at, and you just want to be in the same room with her, you may not be doing the same thing, but as long as you’re breathing the same air, you’re good.”

 

If you're in need of a little sweetening up this Christmas season, Thomas Rhett just posted a photo that would melt the heart of any Grinch.

The proud dad showed off his younger daughter Ada James, all bundled up against the December chill in a polka-dot snowsuit and too-cute-for-words knitted lambs-ear hat. Fans, couldn't resist gushing over the precious moment, with many remarking about the striking resemblance between Ada and her father.

Music City Minute: Luke Bryan, Walker Hayes, Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, & Chris Young! 

It’s album release day! Today's new releases include the sixth album from Luke Bryan and the debut album from Walker Hayes. Luke's is called "What Makes You Country", and it includes his song "Light It Up". Walker's is titled "Boom", and it features his single, "You Broke Up With Me". Luke is obviously country, especially with that accent, but some asked what actually makes you country and he said, “the way I grew up saying yes ma’am and no ma’am, being from a small town Leesburg, Georgia, and just being outdoors hunting and fishing.”

Carrie Underwood may be approaching her third Christmas with son Isaiah, but up until this week, there was still one big holiday activity that the family hadn't done. On Wednesday night, Carrie shared picture of Isaiah putting frosting on a sweet Christmas tree cookie, writing in the caption, "I actually don't think I've ever made Christmas cookies before but this will definitely be a new tradition in the Fisher household!" Turns out Isaiah is pretty fond of his new family tradition, with Carrie saying, "Newsflash: Isaiah likes frosting (shocker)!" 

 

Speaking of Christmas, a lot of us turn on some Alan Jackson to get in the holiday spirit well if you were ever wondering what he listens to the oldies, he says, "When we listen to Christmas songs, we put on the old ones that you grew up with . . . from Gene Autry to Nat King Cole, and all the guys [like] Bing Crosby and everybody."

 

It’s an exciting day for Chris Young! His current single, "Losing Sleep," has just been certified Gold! What that means is, the song reached a milestone mark for moving 500,000 units of combined sales and streams, giving Chris his 17th career Gold or Platinum certification. 

Music City Minute: Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Eldredge, Florida Georgia Line, Brett Young 

Today’s Music City Minute is all about fun facts! Kelsea Ballerini got married over the weekend to now hubby and fellow singer Morgan Evans, the two are on their honeymoon in Cabo. Her husband Morgan has been sharing vacation pics with us on Instagram, it’s basically going to make you wish you were in a tropical paradise.  

 

Brett Eldredge posted a video on Instagram where he sings to a mechanical Santa, drinks eggnog and bourbon, says hello to some dude pretending to be his Aunt Janice, and then eats cookies and watches himself on TV. He captioned it, "Keep Christmas weird."

 

Speaking of Brett’s, Brett Young was just here for our Y100 Bud Light 8 Man Jam and I found this tidbit about him and his favorite food interesting. He says whenever he’s out on the road he loves to go to Buffalo Wild Wings.

"I am completely obsessed and here's why. I travel so much that it's nice to have things that feel familiar and the inside of a Buffalo Wild Wings they're all the same. So, there's something about no matter what city I'm in if I walk into it I'm like, 'Oh this is just Buffalo Wild Wings,' I feel like I'm home. Not to mention the food's really good and there's always sports on. I'm a fan. I'll be their brand ambassador. I'm in."

Tyler Hubbard from Florida Georgia Line posted another beautiful, artistic photo of his wife Hayley and her very large baby bump. If they're trying to "make pregnant sexy again", mission accomplished.
