When we added Her World Or Mine to our live show last year, the response was immediate and now every night on the road the crowd sings it back to us. I think it has resonated so strongly with fans because no matter which side you are on…the one who has moved on or the one who is hanging on…everyone has been there at some point in their life, they see themselves in this song. I certainly do. I’ve been waiting to get to this song and I’m so excited it’s happening. #herworldormine is our next single from #amos!! Y’all request it!
He also sat down with PopCulture when he released the concept video (below), and said the song resonated with him the first time he heard it. We featured the new single tonight during Trending Tracks and want to know how you feel about it... if you missed it, take a listen and let us know!
Carrie Underwood premiered this song earlier this month at the ACM Awards (along with tour mates Maddie & Tae and Runaway June joining her for the performance), and now it is officially her next single from her album Cry Pretty! "Southbound" is a fun, upbeat song that one might call their summer anthem! What do you think, you rolling down your windows for this one?
First, we have to flashback to March 5th when Little Big Town invited Kelsea Ballerini to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry. After Kelsea's performance, Little Big Town took to the stage to close out the show and invited her back on stage to sing "Girl Crush" with them. The lyrics changed just slightly at the end, watch the moment again below:
Second flashback is this past Tuesday (April 16) when Kelsea officially became the newest and youngest member of the Opry, being inducted by Carrie Underwood. Not only did Carrie officially introduce and induct her, but they sang a duet together. Check out their cover of this Trisha Yearwood classic, "Walkaway Joe"!
Congratulations again to Kelsea Ballerini, it is quite an honor and accomplishment to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry!
Tonight during Trending Tracks, we featured this bit of country music history for you! It was on this day sixteen years ago that Dierks Bentley made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry singing his debut single "What Was I Thinkin'" from his self titled debut album!

Just two years later in 2005, Dierks was invited by Marty Stuart to join the Grand Ole Opry and he was inducted as a member on October 1st singing "Come A Little Closer" during the cerermony.
Take a look at Dierks' time with the Grand Ole Opry here!
