Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are next level…
Miranda Lambert takes a shot a social media…

 

When Blake Shelton started dating Gwen Stefani, he thought it was just a rebound for both of them. 
He had just divorced Miranda Lambert and she had split from her husband, Gavin Rossdale. 
But now Blake sees it differently- he recently said, "Now here we are going on three years later and every day that goes by feels like a stronger bond between the two of us and it constantly feels like it's going to the next level."

Miranda Lambert has taken a shot at social media, saying it causes drama where there isn't any. 
She says, "With social media, it’s a whole other thing. And it’s such [nonsense]. I’m thankful for the drama of it all, because it gets sillier and sillier. They make up so many lies, no one can know the truth. The truth is it’s in my music if you listen close enough. I took three months off all socials in 2015. I loved it. I wrote 75 songs in six months because I wasn’t using my mind staring at mindless [garbage]."
Miranda will join up with Little Big Town for their joint Bandwagon tour next month.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have been happily married for almost 22 years. So what's their secret?
They spend a lot of time together on the Soul 2 Soul tour and at home,but they each carve out "me time." Faith tells People magazine, “We both have our daily routines and we have our own dressing rooms. We each have our own space to retreat to so we do get time to ourselves.”
The issue of People featuring Tim and Faith hits newsstands on Friday. 

Dierks Bentley scored the seventh Billboard No. 1 album of his career as “The Mountain” peaked this week’s Top Country Albums chart.
The album includes his 17th No. 1 single “Woman, Amen,” which reached the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and the Mediabase chart earlier this month.
