Brett Eldredge is making something special…
Travis Tritt and Charlie Daniels to tour together…

 

Brett Eldredge is working on new music, and if history repeats itself he should be releasing a new album later this year. He seems to drop a new album every 2 years and he is due.
He recently said that he deep in the studio, writing and what he is working on is something special.

Travis Tritt and Charlie Daniels are going on tour together. The Outlaws and Renegades Tour will hit over 40 cities and make a few stops in Ohio. The Cadillac Three, Love and Theft and The Marshall Tucker Band will serve as openers on select shows.

Rascal Flatts out of the restaurant business…
Hollywood Squares coming to Nashville… 

Rascal Flatts issued a statement about the restaurant chain they'd lent their name to. 
The story goes- the developer of the projects allegedly has ties to organized crime, and may have been skimming money from them. Though one Rascal Flatts restaurant opened in Connecticut, it closed within a year. Others have either folded before opening or never gotten off the ground, leaving behind a trail of unpaid bills.
The Flatts had no involvement with the development or building of the restaurants. They only had licensed their name to the owner. So no Flatts in the Flats.

Hollywood Squares is coming to Nashville- kind of. CMT has ordered 10 episodes of a Nashville version of the show, which is expected to air this summer.

Devin Dawson is engaged…
Jake Owen is going to act… 

Devin Dawson asked his girlfriend of two years, Leah Sykes, to be his wife -- and she said yes. 
He posted on social media, "I know there are almost 8 billion people in this world, but -- without a shadow of a doubt -- you made me the happiest man on this floating spinning rock when you said yes. I could go on forever."

Jake Owen is set to make his official acting debut in the upcoming film “The Friend”. He joins Jason Segel, Dakota Johnson and Casey Affleck in the film based on the essay, “The Friend: Love is Not a Big Enough Word,” a true-story about a man’s terminally ill wife and the support of his best friend, who moves into their home following the diagnosis.
The movie is currently filming. No word on Jake’s role or when the film will be released.
