Thomas Rhett's "Craving You" featuring Maren Morris has taken the number one spot on the Mediabase airplay chart this week.

He said, "Her voice is so unique and so soulful and powerful. And she came in the studio and nailed that song in like an hour."

33 weeks after its release, Miranda Lambert's The Weight of These Wings is platinum, meaning its sold more than a million copies.
Released on November 18th, the 24-song album is Miranda's sixth studio album. It won Album of the Year at the ACM Awards in April and features the single, "Vice," which was nominated for multiple Grammy and ACM awards on its own.

Miranda Lambert graces the cover of Cosmopolitan’s first country issue.
Inside she's asked, if she could have dinner with anyone, who would it be. She says, "I’d pick Elvis, and we’d eat chicken fried steak and drink a lot."
And she says the one thing she knows about love is: "It’s big and it’s worth it."
You can pick up the premiere copy tomorrow. 

Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd are engaged! They made the announcement yesterday on her Instagram page. She posted a series of 3 pictures featuring her, Ryan and her engagement ring with the simple caption- “Yes.”
