Posted on: September 26th, 2017 by brent

Apparently if you want to go on tour with Little Big Town you just have to make music they enjoy.

Sounds too easy, but it’s really that simple. Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild told ET Online said that she “love(d) the first songs off (Midland’s) record, the traditional country sound” and thinks that Kacey (Musgraves) is a songwriter and entertainer that will “be around for a long, long, long time”.

Kacey Musgraves and Midland (Jess Carson, Cameron Duddy and Mark Wystrach), joined Little Big Town to appear on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Sept. 20 in celebration the LBT’s tour announcement. All the artists took to the stage for a medley of Midland’s hit “Drinkin’ Problem,” Musgraves’ “Merry Go Round” and also performed the 1979 Electric Light Orchestra hit “Don’t Bring Me Down”.

The Breakers Tour begins February 8th in Oklahoma City and includes almost 30 cities.

He said “Yes!” to ‘American Idol’: Luke Bryan to be Second Judge

Posted on: September 26th, 2017 by brent

Country music star Keith Urban was a judge when the show went away… So obviously, it only makes sense that another country superstar would join Katy Perry on the panel, right?

With American Idol set to premiere March 2018 on ABC, the show needed to start locking in judges and picking air times. Sundays and Mondays are the days the revived show is said to be airing, and the search for judges is almost locked in too.

Luke Bryan is going to be the second judge on next year’s season of American Idol. Luke’s schedule is set to be open for American Idol auditions and hopefully this will take things to a new level in the upcoming auditions.

He will be joining Katy Perry and the returning show host Ryan Seacrest. The third and final spot has not been filled yet.

Chase Bryant Engaged

Posted on: September 14th, 2017 by brent

Well, it seems like everyone is either having babies, getting married, or getting engaged. With all the excitement we can barely contain ourselves, and now we have another name to add to the list! Chase Bryant!

Chase Bryant popped the question to his girlfriend Kourtney Kellar. If you watched Chase’s music video “Room To Breathe”, then you should recognize her because she starred in it!

Chase told People He was best friends with Kourtney, but wanted to take their relationship to the another level so he decided to invite her to be in his video. This was where they had their first kiss and Chase decided to use that moment as inspiration for his proposal.

The proposal was just like the scene from the video, then he got down on one knee and now… THEY’RE ENGAGED!!!
