Blake Shelton to open another restaurant…
Sugarland’s new music is full of hope…

 

Blake Shelton is opening up another Ole Red entertainment venue in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. 
He says, “Gatlinburg is one of my all-time favorite places. This part of the country is full of people who love good food, great music, family and most importantly, a good time. That’s what Ole Red is all about, and I can’t wait to give my fans another place to have fun in Gatlinburg.” 
The new venue will open in the spring of 2019. The Nashville location is slated for a May opening. 

Sugarland's new album -- their first since 2010 -- is full of songs of hope. 
Jennifer Nettles tells Rolling Stone, "So in coming back together, and the music that we have written, it's become really clear to me that we are making music that people need to hear right now. Not just as Sugarland, but in the world. I think the messages and the themes that are in this music will be healing." 
No date has been announced yet for the album's release. Their 2018 Still the Same tour launches on May 4th in Oklahoma and stops at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown on July 13th.

Brett Young was almost on The Voice…
Tim McGraw is hydrating… 

Brett Young was almost on The Voice. Producers from the reality competition show gave him the opportunity to go through the audition process. He ultimately did not go through with it after taking the advice of a friend to just go to Nashville and give it a go. It sure seems to have worked out just fine for Brett.
Next for him, he is set to tour with Thomas Rhett’s Life Changes Tour.

Tim McGraw gave us a scare when he collapsed on stage earlier this month in Ireland, which was attributed to dehydration.
Now it appears he is taking much needed time off and he is sharing what he is doing on Instagram. He posted a picture of himself indulging in one of his favorite activities, spearfishing, in a pretty underwater shot. He caption read, “Hydrating.” Well played, Tim McGraw, well played.
