Kelsea Ballerini says after a show if there is Mexican food or Chick-fil-A around she'll eat it. Miranda Lambert says she's not exactly a fine dining kind of human being so a hot dog from a street vendor with a little ketchup and colour her happy.

There's a lot of that being eaten at the McGraw house on the weekends

Brett Young Doesn't Have Acting Chops

July 21st 2017

There are many things that Brett Young is good at. Acting isn't one of them. Brett says he's a terrible actor and he doesn't like doing things he's not comfortable with.  Brett says when he was a kid he was busy playing music and all of his buddies were doing the acting thing.  He says when he's shooting a video for one of his songs it's just a lot of takes to get an expression on his face. Brett says they'll get it eventually but it's a ton of work. 

What Do Rascal Flatts Do For Fun On The road

July 21st 2017

When a country artist is on the road there generally isn't a lot of time to do fun stuff.  They're in a city for a day and then on to the next city right after a show.  However, occasionally the timing will work that there is room to have a little fun. The guys in Rascal Flatts will usually do one of two things. Nothing exciting but it is relaxing. They'll either golf or if the weather isn't great head to a movie.  Jay Demarcus says they'll find something to pass the time.
