Kelsea Ballerini is still off of social media...
Maren Morris to perform on the Grammys...

Kelsea Ballerini is a little more than a week into her break from social media. She made the decision to go off Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat so she could concentrate on finishing her second album. She says it's been hard at times to resist logging in, but getting the record done is her priority.
Kelsea needs to have the album done before she gets on a plane to go to the Grammy Awards. 

 

Maren Morris announced yesterday she will perform at the Grammys with 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys. It won't be the first time they've performed together -- they did a CMT Crossroads last year.
Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban have been previously announced as Grammys performers. The show airs live on CBS on February 12th.

Blake Shelton is still at #1...
People are taking bets on Luke Bryan...

Blake Shelton is busy celebrating yet another week at the top of the charts. 
"A Guy with a Girl" is sitting at the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart again this week. This is still Blake’s 23rd #1 single to date.

Oddsmakers are taking bets on everything for Super Bowl 51- including odds on Luke Bryan's national anthem performance. 
You can wager on how long it will take him to sing the anthem, whether he'll forget the words and what he'll be wearing. So far bettors believe he'll forget the lyrics and that he'll wear a hat before he starts singing. The bets are even that the anthem will come in at two minutes and nine seconds. You just be you, Luke!

Deep South represents the simple things in life, like church, community, high school sports and being outdoors.
Josh says, “I’m really proud of this album. It was really important for me to expand creatively and explore in new ways for this record. The way I pick songs is different now. There are so many things in my life and career that have matured me as an artist."
On of those things is another kid. His fourth son, Samuel, arrived in September 2014.
