Russell Dickerson is on top…

Brothers Osborne will release their sophomore album, Port Saint Joe, on April 20th. 
They recorded the album over two weeks in Florida. 
John Osborne says, “Port Saint Joe is a sonic representation of who we’ve become not only as a band but as people. Every show we’ve ever played together is on this record. Every song we’ve ever written and every mile we’ve ever ridden has led to the making of this record. Imperfections and all.” 

After 39 weeks, Russell Dickerson’s “Yours” is the No. 1 song on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. The tune, was inspired by Russell’s relationship with his wife, Kailey- and it has turned into a popular wedding song.

Eric Church is platinum and back at #1…
Carrie Underwood’s wrist is good to go… 

Eric Church has the number-one song in country music this week. "Round Here Buzz" has reached the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart. This is his eighth number-one hit. And to add even more good news- Eric’s album Mister Misunderstood was just certified platinum for sales of more than 1 million copies.

Carrie Underwood had her last visit with her doctor who took care of her after her nasty fall back in November. 
The final X-ray shows a fork-like structure that appears to be keeping her wrist together. She wrote on Instagram thanking her doctor and physical therapist and said she is good to go.
Carrie is still taking some time off, but she'll be well represented at the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics with her song anthem "The Champion."
