Lady Antebellum Pack Horns For Their Next Tour

May 29th 2017

Lady Antebellum kicked off their You Look Good Tour on Friday (May 26) and this time they are bringing a live horn section with them.  "The horns have been such a fun new part of our sound musically," Dave Haywood said in a recent interview. "For 'Looking For a Good Time' and 'Love Don't Live Here', we're actually adding in some of the horn players on those songs. So, to be able to have something to elevate some of the older songs is fun."

Thomas Rhett's Sentimental Song Titles

May 29th 2017

Thomas Rhett recently admitted that the last 20 song titles he came up with were all about his daughter, Willa.  "I feel like the whole next record is going to be a pretty mushy one about my kids," Thomas said in a recent interview.  "How can you not write about the people that you're with every day and that make you laugh and make you want to just go outside and take a deep breath for a minute."  He also knows that having children is going to change the way he feels about touring.  Thomas is turning to some of his artist friends for their advice on touring and having children.

Keith Urban Gets Unique Autograph Request

May 26th 2017

Country artists are asked for autogrpahs all the time.  It's not unusual for fans to toss things on stage either.  Keith Urban was on the Graham Norton Show with Nicole Kidman recenlty and he told this tory.  This was several years ago before he even knew Nicole.  He's on stage and a woman in the audience yelled out, "Will you sign my leg?" Keith thought this could be fun so he said sure and invited the woman on stage. Keith says she seemed to disappear for a second and the next thing he knew she took her leg off and through her prosthetic leg on stage.  He signed it and then thought to himself, "What is the proper etiquette for returning a prosthetic leg?" To be on the safe side rather than huck it back into the crowd he had fans hand the leg back to her.  Nicole listened in shock clearly not having heard the story before. Her reaction.  "Insane."

Brantley Gilbert Is A Cheater

May 26th 2017

Luke Combs has done a few dates with Brantley Gilbert and during downtime the two have been known to play video games including Madden NFL. Luke says Brantley wins every time.  Luke considers himself a pretty good player but has to concede that Brantley is better. He says, "He's just got it. I don't know what it is. I can't figure it out yet."  Turns out Brantley cheats.  Gilbert says that he sets his team on 'rookie' for the difficulty setting and he makes everyone else play the most difficult setting.  Brantley says, "If you ain't cheating you're cheating yourself." Up until this point Luke had no idea Brantley was doing this.  He should be better prepared the next time they play
