Maren Morris talks about her new album…
Carrie Underwood is not getting a divorce…

 

Even though Maren Morris is touring with pop singer Niall Horan and collaborating with the likes of Zedd on the new song “The Middle,” she will stay true to her country roots on her sophomore album, while still exploring new territory.
She recently said about the new project, “It’s still really soulful and rooted in country, but there’s still these R&B vibes to it and it’s kind of like the first one, it was a little bit of everything.”
It will be a big 2018 for Maren with writing this album, touring and she and Ryan Hurd are getting married sometime next month.

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are not getting a divorce. 
Rumors started this week when Mike posted on his Instagram about being tested. Some read into that to mean that their marriage was in trouble. After a follower offered up prayers for them, he responded that "we've never been better."
Maybe Mike's decision to come out of retirement and rejoin his hockey team, the Nashville Predators added to him being tested, not some much Carrie…

Kane Brown isn’t into cowboy hats…
Kelsea Ballerini made history… 

Kane Brown says one of the obstacles he faces in his country career is the way he looks.
He says, "I'm not your typical country lookalike I guess. I get asked all the time, ya know, why don't I wear a cowboy hat. I just feel like it's 2018 and I shouldn't have to do that anymore."
Kane is currently on the road with Chris Young's Losing Sleep World Tour.

Kelsea Ballerini made history with her latest number one single "Legends."
She's had the most chart-toppers for a female country artist since she made her Billboard chart debut in 2015 with "Love Me Like You Mean It." And she was the first solo female artist to have a number-one with her debut single in nine years. Only 11 women have accomplished that feat. 
Kelsea is currently on her Unapologetically tour, and will join Keith Urban's Graffiti U tour this summer.

Toby Keith is going on tour…
Maren Morris had a girls night for her bachelorette party… 

Toby Keith will celebrate the 25th anniversary of his big debut hit, "Should've Been a Cowboy," with a tour. 
The 20-city trek starts in April and wraps up in September and he will stop at Jamboree in the Hills in July. 
Toby came up with the idea for the song when he was sitting at a bar with some friends. One of the guys asked a girl to dance and was promptly turned down. A cowboy came along and asked the same girl, and she accepted. That's when Toby looked at his friend and said, "John, you should've been a cowboy."

Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd are set to get married in March, and instead of having her bachelorette party on Broadway in Nashville- she decided to have a girl’s night in. Maren recently gathered her closet gal pals- which included RaeLynn and Cassadee Pope for a night filled with dancing, singing and cocktails all in the comfort of her own home.

On April 27th, just two days before his 85th birthday, Willie will release Last Man Standing. Like his previous album, God's Problem Child, this also talks about the theme of mortality.

Kelsea Ballerini has another #1 song. Her latest single ‘Legends’ sits at the top of the Mediabase Country Singles chart this week. This is the first single off her sophomore album, Unapologetically and her forth #1.
