Jake Owen is growing his long hair back…


Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town are about to jump on the Bandwagon tour. 
Their joint tour kicks off on July 12th in North Carolina and hits 13 cities before wrapping up in Michigan on August 24th.

Jake Owen is growing his long hair back. 
A few years ago, at his mother's urging, he cut his hair. But some fans were not on board with his clean-cut look. 
Well, there's some good news for those who loved his long hair -- he's growing it back. He posted on social media saying- “Spoiler alert- I’m growing that flow back.” Fans feelings are mixed and no word on how his mom feels.

Dierks Bentley to release a new album…
Rascal Flatts to tour again… 

Dierks Bentley announced he will release his ninth album, The Mountain, in the next few months. 
Dierks and his songwriting friends went to Telluride, Colorado to write for the album and he returned there with his band to make the record. 
He says, “Obviously, the songs were written and recorded in the mountains. But it's the mountain that we’re all faced with every day, and the struggle to put one foot in front of the other even when things are hard, that we all have in common. Looking back now, I think we were all searching for hope and optimism when we were writing this music.”
No word on the exact release date. 

Rascal Flatts will hit the road this summer with Dan and Shay and Carly Pearce for the Back to Us tour after taking last year off to focus on making music. Cities have been announced, not dates yet- but Cleveland is on the list!
Tickets go on sale on January 26th.

Maren Morris is making new music in L.A...
Sugarland is coming to Youngstown… 

Maren Morris is headed to Los Angeles to write songs for her sophomore album. 
Why go to L.A. instead of staying in Nashville?
Maren said, "When I go to L.A. to write, I'm in a different head space. Like, the Nashville writing rules don't really apply to me as much in my head. It's completely internal. It has nothing to do with Nashville. It's me being here."
No word on when a new album will be out.

Sugarland will be out on the road this spring and summer on their Still the Same tour. 
They'll hit 48 cities including Youngstown at the Covelli Centre on July 13th.  
Brandy Clark and Clare Bowen will join them for the first part of the tour, and Frankie Ballard and Lindsay Ell will tour the later dates.
