Miranda Lambert was performing at the Under the Big Sky Music Festival in Whitefish, Montana when she called out another concert goer for not paying attention to her songs. 

"When it's white and it's dark up here - I can see your head is not turned the right way which is this way. So, if you came to visit, do it somewhere else. If you came to sing some country music and drink some beer and raise some hell then we're doing that tonight. Are we clear?  Are we done with our drama yet?" Miranda said. 

There was also a fight at one point during the show where she also said "Fighting is not okay. And it's always the girls. We get crazy! Cheers everybody. I'm gonna wait it out. Mine's empty. This looks like a good time for a drink y'all." However, Miranda doesn't actually mind fights at her shows as long as it's not during 'Tin Man'. 

Jon Pardi and his wife Summer, have welcomed a second baby to the family. They shared the news on social media of the arrivial of Sienna Grace Pardi's arrival on Tuesday, July 16, at 11:47AM. She weighed in at 6 lbs. and 12 oz.

The couple first announced the pregnancy in January 2024 when showing off their new house on social media stating "good thing we have that extra guest room!" 

Ingird Andress is coming clean to her fans following her viral National Anthem performance at the 2024 Home Run Derby during MLB All Star Week. 

She issued a statement on social media sharing. "I'm not gonna bulls*** y'all, I was drunk last night. I'm checking myself into a facility today to get the help I need. That was not me last night. I apologize to MLB, all the fans, and this country I love so much for that rendition. I'll let y'all know how rehab is I hear it's super fun.

She was set to perform in Nashville on July 17th, however, her website now says that performance has been cancelled. 

Jelly Roll finally made it to Canada this week to play his first-ever international shows. He had to work hard to get a U.S. passport because of his past felony conviction. Onstage, he told crowd that he has two things that he really loves about Canada. "Cover the kids' ears, but the weed has been incredible," Jelly said. "And the people have been great. I mean, I never had poutine until yesterday. I went to Smoke's. It was fire. I'm sorry I was late to the party, but I will take it home and make it tradition to throw gravy on my fries. It was fire."

Season 26 of The Voice will premiere September 23 on NBC. Reba McEntire and Gwen Stefani will return as coaches for the fall season. Michael Buble and Snoop Dogg will make their Voice debuts.

The Philadelphia-based wedding and party band Jellyroll has dropped their lawsuit against Jelly Roll. Jellyroll member Kurt Titchenell said that the group is withdrawing their lawsuit filing. Originally, they were asking Jelly Roll to stop using his stage name on the grounds that it was too similar to the band name they'd been using for decades. "The dispute with Jason Bradley DeFord, a.k.a. Jelly Roll, has been resolved and the legal action has been withdrawn," his statement read. "We look forward to our continued use of the name, Jellyroll Band, in connection with our party band business."

Ernest is taking a break from touring to focus on his family. He shared the news in a social media post, saying that he loves performing for his fans every night, but being on the road has "taken its toll" on him and his young son, Ryman. "I'm going to be taking about a month off to reset and spend some time at home with my family," Ernest wrote. "My son, Ryman, is now at the age where every time I get home, he asks me if I'm leaving...and I just can't stand hearing him ask for daddy thru a phone call anymore. I wanna spend quality time at home and pour into that reserve." He did say that he'll be back on tour soon and is excited for what lies ahead.
