Jake Owen Making Movie Debut with 50 Shades Star Dakota Johnson

Jake Owen, the Hollywood actor? Jake just revealed he got the role in a new movie titled, The Best Friend.

Jake says he’s at the point in his career where he wants to take risks and see what he can do.

The movie also stars Casey Affleck, and Dakota Johnson, the female star of 50 Shades of Grey.

Looks like from the IMDB description, the movie is ‘about a man’s wife becoming terminally ill, but the best friend steps in and makes an impact on the family.’

No word on when it will be out, but it starts filming in February in Fairhope, Alabama.

Lauren Alaina & Fiance Call Off Engagement 

Lauren Alaina said that 2018 was one of the hardest years for her with the loss of her stepdad, and now 2019 seems to be starting off with some difficult changes as well. She posted to social media that her fans have always been so open and supportive through her life and her relationship so she felt is was only right to share with her fans that her and her fiance, Alex, were calling off their engagement. There were no details other than her post that stated, “While we still have love for each other, we have grown into very different people over the last six years. We are now in the place where we are each looking forward to starting our own fresh, new chapters of our lives. We both love and respect each other and hope you will do the same.” We hope nothing but the best for both of them.

Luke Combs Shares 10 Year Throwback Of His Mullet

Luke Combs has a great sense of humor. He loves to call people out and social media is the best place to do that, right? That way everyone can be a part of the jokes as well. Over the weekend he called out Morgan Wallen on his mullet and shared a photo from 10 years ago of his “mullet” and captioned it with “@morganwallen this was my mullet 10 years ago. Complete with racing stripes. Needless to say I was a huge @jaredallen69 fan. Was it lit or not?” LOL the picture below shows everything you need to see with Luke Combs past look... Whatta ya think?

Carly Pearce Posts Personal Messages From Fan Who Body Shames Her 

Carly Pearce has been the staple girl for confidence over the last year or two. She has come up in the country world and women have fallen in love with her love for herself and other women in the industry. She posts to social media on a daily basis showing off her athleticism with 6 mile runs and sometimes even more. Even Michael Ray jokes that he can’t run as much as Carly Pearce can. She works with Nashville country artist personal trainer Erin Oprea who also trains Carly Pearce, Kelsea Ballerini, Raelynn, Maren Morris and more. 

After all that hard work, a fan still had the nerve to message her pictures of her at a show, singing, and ask if she was pregnant. Carly then took a screen shot of the messages she was sent by this fan and post to social to show women and others that words hurt. She shared the screenshot on Instagram with a caption that said “Last night, I got off stage on a high from an amazing show in Iowa, where I headlined my second show of the weekend, hearing the entire crowd sing the words to my songs. I checked my messages as I do every night after a show because I love y'all and love to see the fun you've had at the show, and then I saw these 2 messages. Honestly I'm still in disbelief but I wanted to share this with you because I feel like this is important (especially for women) to see that WORDS ARE POWERFUL & no matter what, THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK and BE KIND. Body Shaming & Bullying ARE NEVER OKAY.”

Backstreet Boys Release “No Place” - Is This A Country Hit?

Backstreet Boys Release “No Place” - Is This A Country Hit?

Fine, take my opinion with a grain of salt. I can hear the feedback already - “THEY AREN’T COUNTRY!” So I’ll go ahead and ask you to have the same respect for my opinion and hear me out....I’m calling it now. This song (video below) is going to be huge. And to my knowledge, currently has no current push to country radio....but I’ll be curious to see what happens in the coming weeks.

If “God, Your Mama and Me” was a smash with Florida Georgia Line, then this song is hands down going to do something on country radio, sans any major country superstars on the track with them.

Why? It’s an extremely familiar sound. It addresses family values. It’s the Backstreet Boys; the band my walls were plastered with as a pre-teen, like so many others who are part of today’s core country audience - they’re showing us their lives in the video that so many of the women who grew up with them, are also experiencing! 

As soon as I heard it, I thought to myself - ‘this is a song I could‘ve heard Chris Lane, Thomas Rhett or even FGL record, this had to come out of Nashville.’ So, I then tagged Chris Lane on Instagram and told him the same thing and his response was, “I think Josh Miller wrote it and he has written a many of mine and FGL songs, so you are spot on actually.” BINGO.

Did some research and yes, Josh Miller is a writer on it.

Sure, while there’s always going to be haters these days on “what’s country” or not and what genre a song belongs in, this song fits what people seem to be loving right now - just take a look at Chris Lane’s “Take Back Home Girl,” and Russell Dickerson’s “Blue Tacoma.”

Go ahead, mark my words, and let’s see what happens with this song a few months down the road ;) 

Songwriters: Brett James, Joshua Miller, Troy Verges 

Song Producer: Steve Solomon "No Place" Official Video Editor: Andrew Putschoegl Producers: Sam Houston, Andrew Straw

Tim McGraw Opening First Gym Friday

Tim McGraw over the last decade or so has really become a super health nut. When it comes to his workouts on the road, and his diet plan - he’s definitely living the healthy lifestyle, and not doing any fad type diets.

This Friday, Tim will launch his first gym, Truemav Fitness, 

and it will reportedly include custom equipment and programs based on Tim’s workouts.

He’s expected to attend a ribbon-cutting for the Nashville location at noon on Friday at 601 Ninth Avenue South.

Thomas Rhett Teases Wife May Sing With Him

Thomas Rhett Teases Wife May Sing With Him

BIG THINGS are coming out of Nashville from our favorite artists. New music is coming our way but it may have a little twist! Thomas Rhett posted a photo of his wife in the studio in front of a mic. Could she be adding some vocals on his new music?! Thomas Rhett and Lauren are already one of the major power couples of country music. Lauren has the most followers on Instagram of all the country music spouses with a whopping 2 million follow. The internet loves them and if they do come out with a song that has BOTH their vocals on it... the world will go crazy and i’m sure it’ll be the best thing we have ever heard. 

Dan + Shay may have started a trend last year when they released Tequila and had their wives on the song with them to sing background vocals. We’ll see! Thomas Rhett didn’t include a caption with the photo which makes us believe it’s a teaser for new music with Lauren as a special guest and obviously Lauren is musically talented because Thomas Rhett also posted a video of the two of them playing the piano together (see below).

The book is called We Are the Gardeners and her kids helped her create it.

Lauren Alaina Shares Throwback With Emotional Message To Fans

Lauren Alaina Shares Throwback With Emotional Message To Fans

This last year has been a very rough on Lauren Alaina. She lost her stepfather not to long ago to cancer, and even before this year she had major self esteem issues that she was very open about with her fans. She overcame an eating disorder as well during that time. As the new year kicks off, she decided to take some time off of social media to reflect on her feeling and all that she has had to deal with over the last few years. She posted to Instagram to let her friends know she would be back, but we wouldn’t hear from her for a little bit. She told us this by posting a throwback photo of her in, what looks like, middle school, in a polo and a short bob haircut. She captioned it with “This Lauren didn’t care if she wore boy clothes. She preferred it actually. She didn’t know the future. It’s ups and downs. The happiness and pain it held. She didn’t know about heartbreak or loss. She didn’t know how cruel people can be or how much words can hurt, but she didn’t care what people thought of her or her boy clothes. She was happy and sure of herself. She knew she wanted to write songs and sing them. She loved fiercely and boldly. And most importantly, she knew how to smile through a mom bob. 😳 😂 I want to live everyday to be more like her. I’m looking behind every rock and corner for her this year, and I’m going to find her. I’m taking a little break from social media. I’ll be back soon. Probably not in a boy’s collared shirt, but I’ll be back more like her. Much love to all of you. Thank you for your continued support. 💕”

We knew that Tim McGraw loved the beach and we knew he owned a beach house in the Bahamas... but what we didn’t know is how NICE IT IS! Wow. It’s nicer than some resorts! He and his beautiful wife, Faith Hill, celebrated the holidays and rang in 2019 there and we are officially jealous. They also shared a video on Instagram of the house... 

I mean... heaven! They spend quite a bit of time there and we can see why. Tim has done nothing but fish, dive and spend as much time as he can in the beautiful blue ocean. We don’t blame him one bit. These next two were taken by his daughter, Maggie!

Some of these look like they should go in a magazine! And this one.. well hello Tim.

If this isn’t the most romantic thing you’ve ever seen. I love how simple it is too... Brian Kelley and his wife, Brittney Cole Kelley, got married 5 years ago and to celebrate their milestone anniversary the two decided to recommit themselves to each other in the beautiful Big Sur, California. It was a simple ceremony. They both wore their usual clothes you’d see them out and about it, and it even rained on them and they rolled with it, which made for breathtaking photos. 

Brian Kelley posted the photos to his instagram to share with his followers and fans with the caption “I’d marry you a million times @bcole429 ⚓️💯🙏🏼I love you with everything that I am, loved renewing our vows for our 5 year wedding anniversary in Big Sur, CA at the @postranchinn.

Ashley’s All Access Exclusive: Michael Ray Pops the Question in Mexico!

It’s official, you heard it here first! :)

I actually received the news directly from Michael’s mother Thursday morning, but I wanted to respect their privacy and wait till Michael and Carly were ready to share the big news!

Michael and Carly were vacationing in Tulum, Quintana Roo Mexico this past week where he popped the question! I sent him a text Thursday morning to of course congratulate them first, but then to double check if I was supposed to share the news yet or not, and he said they’d be waiting until Saturday (today) when they got back to Nashville to share the news.

Carly will be in Central Florida celebrating Christmas with Michael’s family this week so it will certainly be an exciting time for them all!

Don’t miss Michael taking over K92.3 on New Years Eve again for his 3rd annual K92.3 Michael Ray New Year’s Eve Party! We’ll definitely be sharing the story of the proposal then!

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Man, oh man. Blake Shelton gets down and dirty on The Ellen Show the other day and when we say dirty... we mean it! The game was called “5 Seconds” and it’s where you have to come up with 3 things in 5 seconds based on the question your given.

Thomas Rhett, FGL’s Tyler Hubbard & More Become Country Carolers Again

Looks like we can count on Thomas Rhett, Russell Dickerson, FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and their wives every year to be the Country Carolers. They did it for the second year in a row where they dress in old school get ups and go around town singing for the fun of it. These guys are really good friends and it’s so fun to see them doing stuff like this year round, but even more during the holidays. 

The post above was them this year... That little Christmas tree in the front of the group is Ali. She works at The Dry House Nashville, which is a hair salon that all the artists wives go to for all their beauty needs. She has become a close friend of all the artists and their wives over the years and was a part of the Country Carolers this year. 

The photo and video below is from last year when the group did this, and the video is from country artists RaeLynn’s house when they crashed her party with their singing...

After a year or more of crazy touring, shows, appearances, new music and more, Michael Ray and Carly Pearce are taking a much deserved vacation that is just the two of them.

Kane Brown’s Wife Loses Family Member

Losing a family member isn’t easy... especially when your life is in the spotlight like our country artists are. Kane Brown’s wife lost her grandmother over the weekend and our hearts go out to her and Kane as they mourn and reflect on her life.

Blake Shelton Funds Cancer Research Center 

Blake Shelton’s cousin is just about to turn three-years-old next month, but when she was just five months old, she’d been diagnosed with a neuroblastoma tumor. According to officials at the Children’s Hospital Foundation, she went on to have two blood transfusions, three rounds of chemo and surgery to remove most of the tumor.

At the time, Blake stepped in with $600,000 for the children’s hospital, but now, Shelton has gone above and beyond, and the hospitals’ cancer research program is being named after him:

Luke Bryan Reveals Mustache To Wife in “12 Days of Pranksmas”

It’s easy to say Luke Bryan and his wife definitely have a good time and make things fun for the family.

Caroline started 12 days of pranks, and she herself painted with clear nail polish, a bar of Irish Spring soap. I had to Google exactly what this did - do you leave it still wet with the paint and put it in the shower or do you let it dry and then put it in shower so the soap doesn’t work? Legit questions I had - but here’s what Google said: “This is one of the simplest yet most frustrating pranks I've ever done. ... Cover the entire bar of soap in nail polish and let it dry so it is unlatherable.”

Well, Luke then also shocked Caroline when he shaved his face into mustache:

Brett Young Spills The Beans On Babies

It’s been just over a month since Brett Young and his beautiful new bride became husband and wife. November 3rd is when Taylor Mills became Taylor Mills Young. It may not have been that long ago that they tied the knot but the couple has been together, on and off, for over 10 years. Knowing each other for that amount of time, they have decided that babies were something they wanted very very soon. Taylor told PEOPLE Magazine “Starting that next chapter in our lives — kids, starting our own family — and being able to experience that together is what really makes me the most excited.” 

“We do want kids soon, and that changes things,” adds Young, 37. “I’m excited to start life in general. I’m excited to say ‘husband and wife.’ Like, ‘My wife.’ You know, we’ve been together for a long time, but there’s just certain things that change.”

Not only are kids on the table for discussion but they also just bought a house together and are settling into that as we speak! “We did just buy a place, and we haven’t really settled in enough to call that home yet. We’ve both lived really good lives — this is the beginning of our life together. So that’s exciting.” A lot is going on in their lives... Brett’s music is skyrocketing, they just got married, just bought a house and now are talking about babies! It could make your head spin. “We’re excited about that stage,” Brett said. “I think we’re both ready and so I don’t think we’re going to do the thing where we’re going and testing everybody’s levels and trying to do everything we can to rush into it. I think we’re going to let it happen when it happens.”

Ellen DeGeneres Considers Ending Daytime Talk Show

Ellen DeGeneres Considers Ending Daytime Talk Show

The New York Times released details of a recent interview with Ellen Degeneres where she revealed she has considered ending her daytime talk show. Her contract is apparently up in 2020, and I can’t imagine NBC wouldn’t renew her show.

Reports say DeGeneres’ wife Portia de Rossi is “in favor of her ending the show - but that her brother thinks she should keep going because people need positivity.”

"She gets mad when my brother tells me I can't stop," DeGeneres admits. Meanwhile, de Rossi counters, ”I just think she's such a brilliant actress and standup that it doesn't have to be this talk show for her creativity. There are other things she could tackle." No matter what happens, de Rossi adds, "I don't see the end of her show as her career ending."

Brittany Aldean Addresses Tabloids and Bullying

Brittany Aldean got “urked” just enough apparently with this sensational news headline to take to her Instagram and call them out.

OK! Magazine is not a reputable publication - like National Enquirer is not a reputable publication either - they call them “sensational” media outlets for a reason - you shouldn’t believe everything you read - these are not clinical journals - ok you get my point.

When OK! Magazine printed “Carrie Underwood reportedly has no interested in being friends with Jason Aldean’s wife.”

The magazine went on to say “Brittany Kerr keeps reaching out but is getting nowhere with the country star.”
