Before Chris Young found success with his music, he was a student at Middle Tennessee State University. Earlier this month, the school announced that they woud be naming a newly renovated live entertainment venue after him. The space will be called the Chris Young Cafe. He has been a big supporter of the school over the years, with his annual scholarship for recording industry students and now, he has donated $50,000 towards the renovations.

 

Tenille Townes got a little help from 16 members of Troop 6000 when she decided to re-record "Somebody's Daughter". Troop 6000 is a Girl Scouts intiative that is based in Tennessee and serves girls without permanent housing. Tenille says the experience was powerful, with a group of eager and engaged girls, all of whom have either been homeless or are currently without permanent housing. She will donate proceeds from this recording to the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee's Troop 6000 Intiative.

 

Congratulations going out to Mark Wystrach of Midland and his fiancé Ty Haney. They're expecting a baby girl in November. Mark says, "It is the most exciting thing that has happened in my life. Talk about something that makes you really take a step back and truthfully assess who you are and who you wanna be for this young little one. We’re thrilled and terrified to go through this beautiful, life-changing experience and start a little beautiful family together. What a trip!” Mark and Ty became engaged in May. In an interesting twist Mark's twin brother, Mike, and his partner are also expecting a baby girl around the same time. Mark says, “I couldn’t have scripted a better way for life to play out for us. He’s more than just a friend — he’s my twin brother, and someone I look up to and look to for advice and friendship. It’s hard to explain just how close that relationship is. We’ve been through a lot, and I can’t wait to raise our children together.”
Riley Green has been working on his moustache and it sounds as though he won't be getting rid of the look anytime soon. Riley says, "The mustache is pretty serious. I feel like it entered the room before I did. Me going out on stage with Brad Paisley with a Fu Manchu mustache was just kind of way to throw everybody off and cut up. People seemed to like it, so I might just have a Tom Selleck mustache one of these days for the rest of my life."
Randy Houser's home is for sale. As always, the house is pretty spectacular. Here are a few details. The 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom French country-style house also has two half-baths, with footage totaling 7,093 square feet and includes a living room with vaulted ceilings and a fireplace, as well as an entertainer's kitchen that features two built-in refrigerators, three dishwashers, an icemaker, warming drawer, double ovens and a separate butler's kitchen. The property also boasts an outdoor kitchen and screened-in porch with a fireplace, a seven-car garage, a laundry room with a separate pet grooming station. What will all this set you back. It's listed at $1,499,000, which breaks down to monthly payments of $6,539 with a down payment of $299,800. What do you think? Will you put in an offer?
Miranda Lambert has a new album coming out. We don't have a release date for it but there is one thing we know about it. Miranda and Maren Morris are collaborating on one of the songs. It's called 'Too Pretty For Prison'. Miranda says that when she was writing it she knew right away that she wanted Maren to be a part of the song. And the song wasn't even finished at that point. One other note about the song. It was inspired by Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town. Miranda says, "We were having a wine night, and I always tell all of my friends leaving, 'Don't leave if you've been drinking, because you're too pretty for prison. So, thanks Karen, for sharing that wine bottle with me and for taking an Uber." You just never know what will inspire a song.
Some disappointing news. Alabama has had to cancel two shows in Canada this weekend including their show at The Big Sky Festival at Burl's Creek tomorrow (Saturday July 20th). Randy Owen is not feeling great. He is suffering from migraines and vertigo and is under a doctor's care. They were also scheduled to perform in Ottawa tonight.
Jimmie Allen is enjoying some long awaited success, espeicially with his song, 'Best Shot'. As terrific as that is Jimmie says the best part is what he's been able to teach his son, Aadyn. He says, "What I feel like is the best thing I've been able to give him is just showing him that opportunity exists. You know, that the dreams you have are possible. And I feel like that's the best gift you can ever give to your children is just showing them through your hard work that if they work hard, they can accomplish the same thing."
