Brett Young has yet to receive any wedding gifts…
Thomas Rhett and his wife are discussing more kids…


Brett Young is set to marry his fiancee Taylor this year, but he has yet to receive any wedding gifts.
He says, "We haven't gotten any yet, probably because we haven't announced a wedding date. Maybe they think we're full of it and it's not gonna happen. I don't know. But I get some great fan mail, and we do get gifts every once in a while, but nothing specific to the wedding yet."
Those gifts from his fans- whiskey and Skittles - two of his favorite things.

After adding two children to his family rather quickly, Thomas Rhett says that more may be on the way.
During a recent interview he said that he and his wife Lauren have been discussing the idea of growing their family with three more kids in just a few short years.
He said, “Lauren wants to have five kids before she turns 34. That is her plan. So you can probably expect three new babies in the next five years. She’s the boss.”
Thomas admits that he and Lauren are more than open to adopting again. Life changes for reals!

Sugarland gaining new fans with new song…

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host the CMA Awards for the 11th time on November 14th. The CMA nominations will be announced on August 28th from 32 Bridge Food and Drink, which is Luke Bryan’s brand new restaurant and bar on Broadway in Nashville. Luke along with Dan + Shay and Sugarland will announce the nominees!

When Taylor Swift reached out to Sugarland in the hopes they would record her tune "Babe," they never imagined she would agree to be on the track.
Now, months later, they're finding that her appearance on their album has brought them new fans -- all the Swifties, to be exact. Taylor has even added the song to her set list on her reputation stadium tour.
Sugarland are out on their Still the Same tour through next month.
