Miranda’s Airstream got a makeover…
More performers announced for the ACMs

 

Miranda Lambert's beloved Airstream, “Wanda the Wanderer,” just got a big remodel. 
Her silver home-away-from-home had previously been renovated by her good friends of HGTV's  Junk Gypsies. After a few years of travel and wear, Wanda needed some more TLC, and the Gypsies stepped in to fix her up.
Complete with dip-dyed fringe, a faux-snakeskin booth and an old church pew, Wanda the Wanderer's new look left Miranda speechless.

New performers have been announced for the ACM Awards.
Kane Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town and Jon Pardi have joined the performance lineup, which already includes Lauren Alaina, Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Midland, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Bebe Rexha, Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Brett Young.
The show -- hosted by Reba McEntire -- will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15th on CBS.

Jason Aldean talks award shows…
Thompson Square are back… 

Jason Aldean won the ACM's Entertainer of the Year in 2015 and 2016 and he's nominated again this year. He says he doesn't need nominations to feel validated in his career, but they do make the award shows much more fun- because you don’t know what’s coming. 
Jason is also up for Male Vocalist of the Year. 
The ACM Awards air live from Las Vegas on April 15th.

Thompson Square are back!  
They'll release their first album in five years this summer. Masterpiece features 11 new tracks that they say follow in the footsteps of their hits "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not" and "If I Didn't Have You."
The album will drop on June 1st, but five of their new tunes are available now. You can see Thompson Square at the Kent Stage on April 7th.
