Hunter Hayes is ready to release a new album…
Dierks Bentley saved his mustache…

 

Hunter Hayes is ready to release new music and he says the album has a lot of emotions.
He explains, “Honestly, I can’t compare this record to anything else. I’ve never done anything like this. I’ve never written anything like the stuff on this album and there’s topics that I’ve never covered before that I’ve been afraid to cover. Musically, there’s some stuff we’ve tried that we’ve never tried before.”
Look for album to be out later this year.

Over the past few weeks, Dierks Bentley had grown very attached to his mustache, even though nobody approved of it- especially his daughters. Thankfully, someone finally convinced him to shave it off, but it wasn't easy for him to do. He made a very painstaking video of him shaving it off that you can view on his social media accounts. It is worth a look!

Easton Corbin parts with his record label…
FGL’s Brian Kelley says he is not ready for a baby… 

Easton Corbin is no longer with his record label Mercury Nashville, his label home since 2009. In his time with Mercury, he has scored two #1 hits with “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It” along with multiple top 10 hits. His current single “A Girl Like You” is in the Top 10, and he has been working on a new album. No word on what will become of this new project now that he is in between labels.

Baby fever is real in Nashville right now, but Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley doesn't plan to catch it anytime soon.
His bandmate Tyler Hubbard has been a dad for nearly two months, but that hasn't influenced Brian. He says he and his wife Brittney are "trying to wait a bit longer."
For now, their four dogs are enough.

Garth Brooks is a Hall of Famer…
Bebe Rexha makes country chart history… 

Garth Brooks was named the first inductee to the Live Music Hall of Fame. He sells out tons of shows, tours for years on ends, gives his all at every performance, so he naturally earned his place in the inaugural induction of the new Hall of Fame.
He said about the award, “It’s a total shock and quite an honor. I don’t think an entertainer is anything without the people who allow him to do this.”

Bebe Rexha teamed up with Florida Georgia Line for the collaboration "Meant to Be"- she even co-wrote it with FGL’s Tyler Hubbard.
She said, "I have always respected the country genre and I knew of artists that had crossed over to the pop side, like Faith Hill, Dixie Chicks and Taylor Swift. I never thought a New York girl like me would have a country hit, but I guess it goes to show you that some things are just…meant to be."
The collaboration is also making history- it just passed Taylor Swift’s "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" as the longest-running female-featured number-one in the history of the Billboard country chart.

Daryle Singletary passed away…
Old Dominion has another #1… 

Daryle Singletary has passed away at age 46. He died unexpectedly at his home in Nashville on Monday morning- some news outlets are reporting that he died of a blood clot. 
Daryle is known for his Top 10 hits "I Let Her Lie," “Amen Kind of Love" and “Too Much Fun.” No additional information has been released at this time.

Congratulations to Old Dominion as they top the Mediabase Country singles chart this week with "Written In The Sand." This is the group's fourth #1, following "No Such Thing As A Broken Heart,” "Song For Another Time,” and "Break Up With Him.”

Dierks Bentley has his own clothing line…
Billy Currington is going on tour… 

Dierks Bentley has teamed up with Flag and Anthem for a clothing line. 
It is called Desert Son and includes T-shirts, hoodies and trucker hats inspired by Dierks.
He says about the line, "I wasn’t seeking out a fashion line, but it made total sense. I don’t really need to do something to increase my celebrity status, so I only say yes to things if they’re exciting to me. And this feels really authentic to my life as a husband and a dad."

Billy Currington is hitting the road in March. He'll play 17 dates with LoCash opening the shows. All the guys will be the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park on Thursday, April 19th!
