Kenny Chesney to tour smaller venues next year…
Carly Pearce and Russell Dickerson to tour together…

 

Kenny Chesney has announced his Songs for the Saints 2019 tour, and it's not a massive stadium tour. Kenny wants to bring his music directly to his fans.
He says, "Sometimes it's about stripping things back, and creating a different kind of experience. For me, I wanted 2019 on the road to get music to the fans, right where they live, and as always, my team figured out how to help me do that."
The more intimate tour will focus on smaller venues. So far only a handful of stops, but no dates, have been announced.

Carly Pearce and Russell Dickerson are teaming up for The Way Back tour next year. The pair have known each other for about 8 years when they met in the same songwriting circles.
Russell says, “Carly and I go way, way back and we have cheered each other on for years. Breaking onto the scene together has been such a fun ride, so we had to book a tour together to celebrate!”
The Way Back tour starts on January 24th in Cleveland at the House of Blues. Tickets go on sale Friday.

Carly Pearce is in love…
Garth Brooks is in love too… 

Carly Pearce is in love and she's singing about it.
Instead of releasing a third single from her debut album, Every Little Thing, she's decided to put out "Closer to You" -- a new song that reflects where she is in life. Carly and fellow country singer Michael Ray have been dating since earlier this year. 
She says, “I am totally in love. I was trying to figure out -- what is the perfect and right song to show the evolution of me in the last 18 months? It felt like this was exactly what I wanted to say and exactly where I’m at.”
Carly is currently working on a new record, which should be out next year.

A couple of weeks ago, Garth Brooks said that the CMA had turned him down when he asked to perform a ballad for his wife, Trisha Yearwood. 
The CMA has decided to let Garth go through with his performance of the song on next week's CMA Awards. 
Garth says about the song, “It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard for someone you love. And, of course, I can’t help but think of Miss Yearwood. So, I’m calling it Trisha’s Song. But I didn’t have anything to do with writing it...She still hasn’t heard it. So the first time that she’ll hear it – the first time anybody’ll hear it – will be that night live on the CMAs."
The 52nd annual CMA Awards air live from Nashville on November 14th on CBS.

Jason Aldean and his wife revealed their daughter’s name…
LeAnn Rimes is ready for the holiday season… 

Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany are expecting a little girl in February, and her name will be Navy. 
  
Brittany took to Instagram recently to reveal the unique name, posting a photo of what appears to be a baby shower with the name Navy written in cursive neon.
She then teamed up with Jason's second daughter, Kendyl, in her Instagram stories to share the child's full name -- Navy Rome Williams.

LeAnn Rimes is ready for the holiday season with the upcoming premiere of her new Hallmark Channel movie It's Christmas, Eve, followed by her sixth holiday tour.
In the new movie, LeAnn plays Eve Morgan, a traveling interim superintendent tasked with fixing budget woes at schools around the country. Old drama soon arises when she returns home to make budget cuts at her childhood school- which include keeping music in schools. Not only is LeAnn featured on 3 new original Christmas songs in the movie, she served as an executive producer on the film.
It's Christmas, Eve premieres on the Hallmark Channel on Nov. 10.

Chris Stapleton and his wife are having their fifth child…
Brett Young got married… 

Chris Stapleton and his wife Morganne are expecting their 5th child. He made the announcement on stage over the weekend. This announcement comes just 7 months after the couple welcomed twins. The Stapletons also have two older children.

Brett Young is a married man. He married his longtime love, Taylor Mills over the weekend in California. They dated for 6 years, but broke up when he moved to Nashville to pursue his country music dreams. Many of his songs on his debut album are about her and when the couple reconnected, they realized they were finally in the right place at the right time.
Brett’s new, more upbeat album Ticket to L.A. is set for release on December 7th.
