Listen- Luke Bryan Releases New, Electronic Country Song ” Out of Nowhere Girl”

Country and electronic music are woven together in “Out of Nowhere Girl,” the second single from Luke Bryan’s forthcoming album  What Makes You Country.  In the lush, playful song, Bryan tries to woo a woman he meets out one night. “It’s like the music stopped playing when I saw your body / Did you come here with someone or come here to party tonight?” It’s always kind of gross when a grown man uses the word “party” as a verb, but there’s a smooth, Ricky Martin-esque suaveness to Bryan’s vocals that help make the song more catchy than creepy.

Blake Shelton Sends Messages To Students After The Loss Of 3 Of Their Classmates

By Rare Country:

When it comes to losing people you love, there’s certainly never a good time for it to happen. But when a tragedy takes place around the holidays, the devastation seems to be compounded. And when those lives are taken in their prime, the grief is unimaginable. Blake Shelton knows about that, and now, sadly, so do the students at Quaboag Regional High School in Massachusetts. Just before the Thanksgiving holiday, three QRHS students were killed in a single car crash.  According to Worcester’s “Telegram,” the teenagers were popular athletes, two girls, and a boy. When it was discovered that one of the school’s committee members had a tie to the Shelton family, a representative of the school reached out to Blake’s mother to see if the country star would be willing to share the story of his own grief. As many fans will recall, Blake lost his 24-year-old brother Richie in a car accident when the future country star was just a young teenager. The newspaper reports that Blake recorded a video for the school’s students saying, “It breaks my heart. I completely know how it feels. I lost my brother in a car accident. I can understand how you guys feel. It’s the worst possible feeling. It’s confusion. It’s anger. It’s just an overall brokenness that’s just gonna take a lot of time to heal. If you can find comfort in anything, it’s just knowing that they’re all in a better place now and God has a plan.” He goes on to say, “I still miss my brother every day, and you’re going to miss those guys every day. I just wanted to say I’m thinking of you and it gets easier, it just takes a long time. Just always honor their memory and never forget about them. God bless you guys. I’m praying for you.” As poignant as that is, Blake and Richie’s mother also said that there is nothing that can be done to help alleviate the grief. “They’re going to hurt for the rest of their lives,” she said of the students. Those students have gone on to create a tribute video to the three teens incorporating the video Blake sent them, and using a recording of Cassadee Pope singing “Over You,” a song Blake co-wrote specifically about the loss of his brother. Our hearts go out to the families and classmates affected by this tragic loss. You are all in our prayers.

Brett Eldredge is still looking for that special someone to settle down with and as he shared, it’s not always easy to find the right girl in his world:

Brantley Gilbert Opens Up About Fatherhood and Diaper Duty

Brantley Gilbert took over Nash Nights Live’s Facebook page on Tuesday (11/28), where he talked about life with his newborn son, Barrett Hardy-Clay, sleepless nights, diaper duty and more:

“That little man, I’m telling you, it’s everything everybody said it would be and more. He’s like a million answered prayers traded in for sleep. But he’s been awesome. I never smiled so big in my life and he can’t even smile yet. So, he’s got me wrapped around his little finger.”

His wife has also not let him get away with not changing a diaper… lol:

“I’m looking real wretched, ’cause little man hasn’t figured out his sleep schedule yet. So we haven’t figured out ours. But I can tell you I have the most wonderful wife in the world. She has woken up with him every time. I try to do what I can but she’s got it under wraps. And, yes, fellas I am changing diapers. For all of ya’ll that are asking if I’m changing diapers yet, I’ve changed quite a few, actually. I usually take the night shift and that seems to be a pretty active time for his stuff. So yeah, I’ve changed quite a few.”

Kenny’s Kanines with K92.3

Kenny Chesney has been a huge relief source for the Virgin Islands, Key West, and the state of Florida in general in the aftermath of the hurricanes that hit just a few short months ago.

One of the most recent ways Kenny Chesney has come to the aid of his beloved St. John and Virgin Islands is by rescuing many of the dogs, and flying them back to Florida on his private plane.

It was over 100 dogs Kenny and his team saved on this last trip last week, and 14 of them are actually available now for adoption with our friends at the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando.

Thanks to our wonderful friends at Stanley Steamer of Central Florida, Connie and Mark Gellner, all 14 dogs adoptions fees have been paid for, and these dogs now just need loving homes.

These are just a couple of the dogs available from Kenny’s recent rescue, that K92.3 would love to help find some loving furrever homes here in Central Florida.

If you are interested in adopting, please reach out directly to Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, and make sure you mention K92.3 and Kenny Chesney’s rescues.

Gwen Stefani Tells Us How She Feels About Blakes New Song, Inspired By Her

Blake Shelton has just released his new album not too long ago and quite a bit of the music on it was inspired by his girlfriend Gwen Stefani. So of course, there is a song on his album called “Turnin’ Me On”… because it’s Blake Shelton. LOL But Gwen has opened up to us about how she feels about the song. She basically said she does like the song he wrote for her on his new album called “Turnin’ Me On,” but it’s not her favorite on his new project:

(Blake Shelton) “She’s probably a little bit embarrassed do you know what I mean? to have someone say all this stuff about you like how sexy you are and like how basically turn him on you know and so? I know she likes the song but she actually, her favorite song on the album is ‘I Lived It,’ she’s probably listened to that song 200 times. She wakes up hearing it, she wants to hear it before she goes to bed, she loves that song.”

Keith Urban Buys Michael Jacksons Old New York House For Wife, Nicole Kidman

Thomas Rhett may have some competition as best husband in country music… right now Keith Urban is coming in hot after he purchased a lavish $39 million Manhattan townhouse for his wife Nicole Kidman so she can take her acting career to Broadway, according to a report.

Urban bought the six-story Upper East Side townhouse — which Michael Jackson once called home — so the Oscar winner can pursue her stage dreams in the city after starring in a London production of the award-winning play “ Photograph 21,”  according to Women’s Day. I mean, seriously? Husband goals right there!

“Nicole is keen to do Broadway shows and get into making TV programs and New York is a much better place 
for them to be than Nashville,” a source told the magazine.

The six-story limestone and red brick mansion was put on the market by billionaire hedge funder Marc Lasry  The Post first reported earlier this month. Pictures of the townhouse are below (from Domain.com)

Built in 1898, the 25-foot-wide home is 12,745 square feet and comes with 16 rooms, including seven bedrooms and a sky garage that you can see in the photos!

Thomas Rhett Gets Cheered On By Whole Family For Thanksgiving Half-Time Show

By Rare Country:

Where did you spend Thanksgiving? Was it around a dining room table with family? Maybe on TV trays with friends? Thomas Rhett and his family went a completely different route for their holiday dinner. They spent it at AT&amp;T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where the young country star performed during the halftime show of the big Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys game. Obviously, it was a big deal for T-Rhett to land this coveted performance slot, and he was excited about the honor. But, it’s arguable if he was the most excited member of the Akins family about being in Dallas for Thanksgiving. And it had nothing to do with Dallas, Thanksgiving, turkey, football or even performing during halftime. For Thomas and Lauren’s 2-year-old daughter, Willa Gray, it was all about the cheerleaders. Dressed in the kiddo’s version of the iconic cheerleading uniform, Willa was enchanted by the beautiful and energetic young women who took time to visit with her and her baby sister, Ada James, who was a bit distracted by all of the activity. But come on, y’all. Babying is hard. Now, this game is the official kick-off of the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign, and Thomas Rhett’s performance was part of that tradition, so with the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders dancing on the skirt of the stage, T-Rhett ripped through a high-octane set that included “Craving You” (sans Maren Morris), “T-Shirt” and “Unforgettable. Although Thomas looked as cool and confident under those bright stadium lights, the day before the game, he looked a little more uncertain of the hefty role he had taken on. He did great, though. And the DCC had nothing on his own personal cheerleading squad.
