Thomas Rhett is a huge fan of Halloween. He has dressed up for his concerts a few times in the month of October. A few weeks ago in Grand Rapids, he talked the crowd into dressing up in 90’s clothes, and now in Sacramento, he had his entire band dress up in Ninja Turtle onsies. Amazing, right?
Many tours are being announced and we are super excited!! Many of them that far from Orlando either… We got Dan + Shay with Morgan Evans in St. Augustine at the St. Augustine Amphitheater on Friday March 15th and then about a month later, Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young come through the same amphitheater on April 26th 2019.

Jason Aldean is a huge jokester. And after the Mega Million lottery went to 1.6 Billion dollars, he decided to make a few jokes. He posted to social media that he won $2 from the lottery and would really like privacy for him and his family. LOL his daughter, Keeley, commented on the picture asking for a new car and Aldean quickly denied it with a laugh too.
Amongst Hollywood, there are quite a few friends who also run in the Nashville world.

Brittany Aldean is very open on social media about her life and her pregnancy. Recently she updated fans on the progress she has made in her pregnancy Tuesday by sharing a new bump photo and revealing her due date. “Bump update…24 weeks,” she captioned the shot, which tells us that her precious Baby Girl Aldean is due on or around February 12, 2019. This is the 4th child to enter the Aldean family, the youngest after 10-month-old Memphis, and Jason Aldean’s 2 daughters from his first marriage, 11-year-old Kendyl and 15-year-old Keeley.

So devastating – Mexico Beach located in Florida’s panhandle was one of the many towns ravaged by Hurricane Michael. Luke Bryan’s mom, LeClaire, called Mexico Beach home.
Below you’ll see the video that LeClaire allowed Inside Edition into film when she returned to where her condo sat:
In Jacksonville, the unofficial world’s “largest cocktail party” has happened for years for the Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs game that usually falls around Halloween weekend.
Well, now that Aldean has his own Nashville bar, and he’s a huge Georgia fan, his new bar will be hosting a watching party for the big game!
Looks like even the biggest of celebrities love dressing up and having fun around Halloween. Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani went to a party over the weekend with Gwen Stefani’s kids. She dressed as Sally from A Nightmare on Elm Street and Blake Shelton was a sailor.
Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren are very close with their families, and Lauren’s sister, Macy, is actually their daughters nanny.
Both Macy and Lauren share a lot of the little girls lives on Instagram, but the other day someone posted underneath one of the photos, “Anyone else notice that Macy is more of a mom to Willa than Lauren is?”
Not cool – but obviously with fame, comes to internet trolls who will say whatever they want and think they know so much about someone they don’t even personally know.
Thomas’ wife Lauren responded with “Oh, I don’t notice that. If you saw it from our personal life instead of through an Instagram feed you may feel differently. I am definitely Willa Gray’s mama. She LOVES Macy . . . and all of [our] family . . . but Macy is her aunt. They are so close and it’s precious.”
BOOM. End of the day internet trolls aren’t going anywhere unfortunately. Lauren’s a great mama and wife and we’re happy she likes to share family life with the rest of us who can appreciate it from afar.
HILARIOUS. Blake Shelton revealed last night after a battle round that he had never heard “Always Be My Baby” by Mariah Carey. Blake’s explanation had me cracking up though it’s at about the 1:05 mark.
Seriously, the cutest thing you’ll see all day is Olivia Hubbard in a little white car next to her mom’s lifesize one. Like mother like daughter right? Tyler of FGL took to Instagram to share Olivia’s cute new toys and captioned it “This is what I get to come home to. Just speechless really. Guess she just got that swag. Lol… #likemotherlikedaughter”
We can’t even imagine what Lauren Alaina is going through. Her stepdad, Sam Ramker has been battling Stage 4 Caner for a while now and he lost that battle on early Sunday morning (10/21). Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. Even though there is nothing anyone can do to make this better. Lauren Alaina took to Instagram to share the last few moments of her stepfather’s life. She said “My stepdad, Sam, went to heaven at one o’clock this morning. He was the purest example of how to love and live life fully. His last few hours were some of the most amazing moments I know I will ever have the privilege of witnessing. He opened his eyes last night. They shined the brightest I’ve ever seen anyone’s eyes shine, and he said, “Jesus.” We said, “What do you see Sam?” He said, “It’s so beautiful.” Mom asked him who he saw and he told her a bunch of people, including his mama. He later said, “I love you all. I found it.” My mom asked him what he found and he said, “Heaven. I’ve got to go.” An hour later he went to be with the Lord. I want this story to be an example of how real God is. We are only here for a short amount of time, and we have to live like there is no tomorrow. I want us to all be a little more like Sam. He was strong. He was the most compassionate person in the world. He would go without to help a stranger. He was a great dad. Now he is with the best Father in the universe. Thank you to everyone who has supported our family in this time. We appreciate the love, donations, and prayers that we have received.”
Major “Brownie” (get it) points go to Kane Brown after he used his wife as inspiration for his next music video “Good as You.” Honestly, the song is about her, so why not make her the main focus, right? He used their wedding video as the music video and its everything!
It’s been just over a year since the world and the country music industry lost Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry. He passed away in September 2017, and to honor his memory, Gentry’s wife, Angie, founded the Troy Gentry Foundation to help others in different areas that her husband really cared for.
To officially launch the foundation, the Grand Ole Opry is hosting a benefit concert on Jan. 9, 2019, proceeds from which will benefit a number of charities.
The concert will feature performances by Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery, Blake Shelton, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Jimmie Allen, Halfway to Hazard, Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Jon Pardi, Rascal Flatts, Jeffrey Steele, Neil Thrasher and more acts that will be announced at a later date.
The Troy Gentry Foundation is pretty much a middle mad that does the work to raise money for different charities. So for this event, proceeds will benefit the Opry Trust Fund, T.J. Martell Foundation, Make-a-Wish, and the Journey Home Project and will provide scholarships and instruments for music education in Kentucky schools.
Angie told All Access that the military, cancer research and music education were all causes that were important to her husband, so she wanted to make sure the foundation supports organizations that aid in those areas.
“Together, with some of Troy’s friends, I started the Troy Gentry Foundation,” Angie shared. “We were sharing memories together one evening and decided we wanted to do something to keep the spirit of Troy’s generous heart alive and honor his memory.”
“Troy was taken too soon, but we felt his dreams and dedication to helping others needed to continue,” she continued. “He was very passionate about our military and their families, about those in need to provide for their children, cancer research, and the continuation of music education.”
Tickets for the concert will be available on the Troy Gentry Foundation’s website.
Gentry’s bandmate Eddie Montgomery told PopCulture.com that he and Gentry had always promised that they would keep the band going should anything ever happen to either of them, and Montgomery is making sure to make good on the pair’s vow.
Kane Brown releases a new song tonight at midnight and his wedding video is the music video! How cute. Although it looks like he may have had to work on his wedding day, it makes the song that much more special.
The CMT Artist of the Year Awards happened last night in Nashville and this year was different than most. CMT decided to honor all the women in country music, new and old, by showcasing them and shining a spotlight on their amazing talents. Miranda Lambert was honored on the televised award show and when she got up to accept her award, she had an uplifting speech prepared to continue showing her love for all the women in the country music industry.
“I was so excited and proud when I saw this whole show was dedicated to these amazing women who have all inspired me,” she noted. “I’m thrilled to celebrate how hard we work tonight, and how much we are a community as women and lift each other up and respect each other.
“Not a day will go by that I don’t lift up and honor other women in this industry, and want to work with them and collaborate,” she continued. “And I hope they do the same. Because we have to be there for each other, and I feel that we are. It’s a small community and we’re all friends. So I appreciate CMT celebrating that tonight.”
