Luke Bryan released his version of a Christmas carol…
Sugarland’s official back together…

Luke Bryan has recorded his version of the Christmas carol "O Holy Night," and is now available. 
Luke says, "We did it like church and symphony, me and a piano player. When I heard the finished product I couldn't have been prouder of a piece of work."
This isn't the first time Luke's tried his hand at Christmas songs. In 2008 he released "Run Rudolph Run." 

And it’s official- Sugarland are back together with new music coming and a tour! Per an email to media members from Big Machine Label Group, their new label, Sugarland are expected to make an announcement "in the coming weeks" about new music. The email did not provide any further details about the music, or Sugarland’s timeline.

CMA winners…
Sugarland reunited at the CMAs…

For the sixth time, Garth Brooks won Entertainer of the Year award at the 51st annual CMA Awards last night. 
The front-runners of the night, Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert, were both nominated for five awards, but both walked away with only one. Keith won Single of the Year, while Miranda won Female Vocalist of the Year for the seventh time.
Chris Stapleton and Brothers Osborne each nabbed two awards. Chris scored Album of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. Brothers Osborne won Vocal Duo of the Year for the second year in a row, along with Video of the Year.
For the sixth consecutive year, Little Big Town won Vocal Group of the Year, and Taylor Swift snagged Song of the Year for “Better Man,” which is her first CMA Award since 2013.
Jon Pardi won his first CMA award for New Artist of the Year. 

And huge surprise- Sugarland reunited last night at the CMAs to present Vocal Duo of the Year, an award they won 5 years in a row! And they all but said they are back together. I all but stopped breathing after that point. All of their social media accounts now feature a picture of Jennifer and Kristian with the hashtag #StillTheSame! I will so keep you posted on all things Sugarland! Yes!
