The Cadillac Three Avoid Accident Touring In Canada

Posted on: February 22nd, 2016 by Mel McCrae

The Cadillac Three has a rough few days. While on the road for Kip Moore’s ‘Wild Ones’ Tour in Canada, the group’s trailer broke in half and went into oncoming traffic on the interstate. Frontman Jaren Johnston and bandmate Kelby Ray posted photos on their Instagram pages letting fans know that they are okay. Miraculously, there were no injuries.

We were extremely lucky today. Everybody is ok. Our new custom trailer basically broke in half and went into traffic on the interstate. Thanks to the Canadian peace officers and DOT crew for their quick response. We will be using limited TC3 gear for the rest of the @kipmooremusic tour but I promise we will bring the heat.

Luke Bryan Plays “Never Have I Ever” With Cole Swindell

Posted on: February 18th, 2016 by Mel McCrae

Cole Swindell and Luke Bryan personal during a game of “Never Have I Ever” and told fans some things they may otherwise not have shared. At the recent Crash My Playa concert they took turns asking each other questions, which led to some uncomfortable truths.

When asked if he’d ever peed in a pool, Luke came right and said, often. “I’ve peed in the pool. I pee in my hot tub. That’s what chlorine’s for.”

As for Cole, he admitted to trying a Baywatch-style run on the beach at last year’s Crash My Playa show with Florida Georgia Line, and it didn’t go like he pictured.

Justin Moore Releases Wild West-style Video For “You Look Like I Need a Drink”

Posted on: February 17th, 2016 by Mel McCrae

If you need a laugh, Justin Moore‘s new music video for “You Look Like I Need a Drink” should do the trick.

Justin shows off his horseback riding skills, and there are tumbleweeds aplenty, but the true star of the clip may be the plot itself. In a Wild West-style showdown, he is on the hunt for a woman named “Mad” Mary Mona Lisa, pictured in a wanted poster…and it’s not easy to find her. He repeats the same day over and over, a la ‘Groundhog Day’.

“This may be my favorite video I’ve ever shot,” he says. “I am a huge Western fan, and we shot one with a dose of comedy.”

Little Big Town took home the award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Girl Crush” at the 2016 Grammy Awards this afternoon (February 15), putting a wrap on the best year of their career.

For the award they beat out Brothers Osborne’s “Stay a Little Longer,” Joey + Rory’s “If I Needed You,” Charles Kelley, Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay for “The Driver” and Blake Shelton and Ashley Monroe’s duet, “Lonely Tonight.”

The group were all smiles as they took the stage during the pre-televised part of the ceremony, with Kimberly Schlapman exclaiming, “Oh my stars! Oh my goodness!” as she approached the microphone.

“What a journey,” Phillip Sweet said before Karen Fairchild thanked “the beautiful writers of this song, Liz Rose, Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna … thank you for bringing us to this big old party, [producer] Jay Joyce for killing this record in the studio…just made the most beautiful, beautiful music.”

The televised part of the show will include performances from Carrie Underwood with Sam Hunt, Chris Stapleton and Luke Bryan and will be on CBS at 7:00.

Carrie Underwood Says Luke Bryan Would Help Her Survive A Zombie Outbreak

Posted on: February 15th, 2016 by Mel McCrae

Carrie Underwood was a guest on ‘Talking Dead’ last night (February 14) and said she was sure she would survive a zombie apocalypse and it would be Luke Bryan who would help her survive it.

“I know what you’re thinking, but I was born to survive the zombie apocalypse,” she told host Chris Hardwick. “My husband bought me this zombie-survival kit for Christmas. I have a machete, I know how to use it. My songs are quite aggressive at times. I’m not afraid. I would know what to do. I was born for this.”

Twitter followers weren’t so sure with some suggesting Brantley Gilbert would be a better choice:

Carrie will be on stage tonight at the 58th Grammy Awards where she is up for Best Country Solo Performance for her tune “Little Toy Guns.”

Blake Fires Shots On Twitter At Tabloids

Posted on: February 5th, 2016 by Mel McCrae

Blake Shelton has not had the best week. Once again the superstar has taken to Twitter to fight back against tabloid rumors.

Over the last several months he has watched tabloids push stories about a possible engagement to Gwen Stefani. He also reportedly bought a house with her and got her pregnant. She’s said to be on his next album, or they’re making an album together…every day there seems to be a new twist and Blake has let his frustration over it boil over, again.

There has been some good news. On Tuesday, he said that he’d finished tracking his upcoming album. Plus, he’ll be back for another season of ‘The Voice’ later this month.
