You know I’m excited for the holidays so naturally when I saw this announcement yesterday I got super excited! The performers were announced for the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade"! Sugarland, Carly Pearce, Kane Brown, and Martina McBride will be performing at this year's parade! Other performers include Diana Ross, John Legend, Bad Bunny, Ella Mai, Pentatonix, Anika Noni Rose, and Rita Ora.
Carly Pearce is definitely excited about it, yesterday she Tweeted:
Speaking of performances The Country Music Association announced its third round of performers for the CMA Awards: Jason Aldean with Miranda Lambert, Garth Brooks, Luke Combs, Midland, and Brett Young.Now, there's a pretty big question on everyone's mind about what will happen at the CMAs, and it's not about who's going to win. People are wondering if Carrie Underwood will have Brad Paisley "accidentally" reveal the sex of her baby, like he did in 2014.
There are similarities on why people are speculating this. Carrie and her husband Mike Fisher already know the sex, and they've even picked out a name. If it does happen again, it could create another "CMA moment"… and that's always good!
Tim McGraw shared a new song called “Gravity” and he’s feeling pretty good about it! One reason is because it’s in the movie “Free Solo”. And he co-wrote it with Lori McKenna, the same writer behind Tim’s song “Humble and Kind” so he’s kind of hoping the same magic will happen with this song.
There were some absolutely amazing costumes from the country music world this year, but this one has to top them all! As someone who loves country music and the artists, I was pretty dang invested in this couple and their family when they announced they were having a baby. You will understand when you see their daughter! Tyler Hubbard, of Florida Georgia Line, and his wife Hayley Hubbard have been married for a few years now and had their first child back in December. Her name is Olivia Rose and she’s the cutest dang baby you’ll ever see!
But what until you see what they put her in for Halloween... I can’t handle it. She was a lion!!! Look at the photos below that they posted to Instagram late Thursday (below). This seriously wins Halloween.
When an artist does a cover of a classic song, sometimes it’s a hit and sometimes it’s a miss. Kelsea Ballerini is known for taking chances when it comes to her music. For example, she recently teamed up with an Electric Dance/Pop group called The Chainsmokers for a duet called “This Feeling.” It was definitely not like her usual music but it turned out amazing and really widened her fan base. Now, she is taking more chances and covering a classic song by Fleetwood Mac from 1975 “Landslide” and the crowd went crazy for it.
Kelsea has been on tour with Keith Urban all summer long and at the beginning of next year will launch her headlining tour with Brett Young. Her hubby, Morgan Evans, will also be hitting the roads at the beginning of next year with Dan + Shay, Old Dominion, and more. Ahhhh, the life of a married couple where both are successful country artists... we’ve all been there right? NOT. But, if you wanna see either of them on tour next year, here are the tour dates and locations...
Kelsea Ballerini/Brett Young: MISS ME MORE TOUR
Morgan Evans/ Dan + Shay: Dan + Shay The Tour
They say that country artists always know the best way to put thoughts into words, but so does a mother. Put Thomas Rhett together with his wife, Lauren, on the day of their oldest child's birthday and you got WATER WORKS. Willa Gray was adopted over a year ago from Uganda and has been the light of their world ever since... but there was definitely a kink thrown in the plan of adopting when Lauren found out (on one of the trip to Uganda to see Willa Gray) that she was pregnant with their first biological child. A few months after bringing Willa Gray home, they had their youngest daughter, Ada James.
Thursday, November 1st, Willa Gray turned 3 and you can just tell by the social media posts from their parents AND extended family, that she is just the most loved little girl. Thomas Rhett posted “Happy birthday sweet baby girl! How in the world are you 3 already?!?! I need to pause life cause it’s just moving too fast. I love you more than anything in the world🙌🏼,” while Lauren posted “My sweet, smart, soooo goofy beautiful baby girl who made me a mama💕💕 Happy 3rd birthday cutie pie!!!!! Life is so fun with you and you are the BEST big sister to Ada James😩😘 Your sweet little spirit makes the world around you a better place💗 I am so proud of who you are Willa Gray girl😘🎉🎂🎈💜🦄🌈 Love you to the moon and back always 🌙✨.” Then Willa Gray’s aunt Macy, who is also the families nanny, posted “This sweet, spunky, full of life, cutie girl turned 3 today🎂 she teaches me something new everyday, and I cannot imagine this life without her in it! I love you more than you know💗.” See all the posts below.
A collection of our favorite country stars dressed up for Halloween of course and there we some good ones!
Raelynn dressed up as pregnant Kylie Jenner and it’s spot on:
I think Keith Urban dressed up as a Ninja and Nicole Kidman dressed up as the cat from Aristocats (Beth thinks):
Brett Eldredge paid tribute to “Jurassic World” and I love this, he put his dog Edgar in a T-Rex costume:
But by far my favorite Halloween costume of all was Jason Aldean and his family, he dressed up as Luke Skywalker, Baby Memphis was Yoda, and his wife Brittany is my new hero, she was in a FULL Chewbacca costume!
Speaking of Halloween the coaches on The Voice dressed up yesterday and sang a soulful version of Blake Shelton’s song “Honeybee” and it’s seriously so good you have to go over to our Y100 Facebook page though and see the video because Blake is dressed up as Batman, Adam Levine is Robin, Jennifer Hudson is Catwoman, and Kelly Clarkson is The Penguin.
Maren Morris recently gave fans a preview of her next studio album, posting a video of her performing a new song titled "To Hell and Back": Maren Morris: "I just couldn't help but tease it. And I played at a show a few nights ago just acoustic, and it's just been cool to see the response to it 'cause it's not like a single, but it is a taste of what's to come."
Talk about NAILING Halloween! Every single one of these costumes is amazing, but my favorite has to be Brett Eldredge and his version of Jurassic Park photo. Brett is Chris Pratt and his dog, Edgar, is the raptor, Blue. Edgar’s costume is ADORABLE.
Also, Thomas Rhett and his whole family dressed up as the cast of Monster’s Inc. Which, COME ON, so stinking cute.
Jason Aldean and his family decided to go the Star Wars route with his son, Memphis, being a baby Yoda.
Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans did couples costumes as well and wore Kangaroo onsies... I mean, #couplegoals right there.
Lauren Alaina, her fiance, and some of her friends turned themselves into the Spice Girls, while Lauren played Scary Spice... “If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends.” Seriously though, this looks like a GREAT group of friends. Ill hang...
First of all, mom shaming isn’t cool to begin with, but when you are also attacking a person for their appearance as well as their mothering, there are some serious issues to be addressed. These artists do not need to share their life with fans. I feel they do it as a courtesy and as a way to allow us to feel connected to them and what goes on in their lives. Carrie Underwood is one of the celebrities that posts about her social life every now and then to keep fans in the loop with what is going. She may have regretted being that open after a few of her Instagram followers mom shamed her on one of her recent posts (see post below).
We can assume she was out at one of her sons soccer games because she captioned the photo with "It's chilly out but I'm staying warm rocking some @caliabycarrie ...the kids played a good game! Isaiah scored two goals for his team...and one for the other team. Hey, a goal's a goal!” Then comments started flowing in like "Well that is a crap ton of makeup for a soccer game," and "Show up like most soccer moms, messy hair don't care, no makeup and a coffee mug in hand.” Some even started attacking her physical appearance like her brows were too dark, her scar was visible, her makeup was getting on the collar of her vest, and one person even decided to say "I love Carrie. But it looks like she's starting the injections and face changing tweaks way too soon. She's looking a little plastic these days."
Can’t we all just be nice?! Even if Carrie did decide to get some work done, SO WHAT?! It’s her life and her face.
