At the moment he's leaving that little kick out of his recipes. Not by choice. Jon and his wife Sarah have young kids so spice isn't their first love. Jon says at the moment he puts together variations of mac and cheese along with chicken nuggets. Not exactly exciting or challenging.

It's taken a long time, but it looks like Jason and Brittany Aldean's dream home is almost complete. "We've been working on it for about two years and we finally are moving in in mid-May," he shared. "We got it set up. This is going to be our forever home. We put everything we had into this, making sure it was something really cool, that we love living in." The backyard is one of the big features with big palm trees, tiki bars and a pool. The only thing Jason wishes was that the house was a bit smaller because it would have been done quicker. "But it will be great when it's all said and done," he added.
While they were walking the red carpet and the Grammy Awards on Sunday, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were asked if they were planning to do a joint album. Blake's response was "I don't think so."

He's sharing his talent with me!"
