Luke Combs Sets New Record With 4th Consecutive #1 “She Got the Best of Me”
Luke Combs may have only one major-label studio record to his name, but he’s already setting records on the radio. Nash Country Daily reports that Combs just notched his fourth consecutive #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart with “She Got the Best of Me.” That feat makes Combs the only solo country artist in history to score four consecutive #1 hits on that chart with his first four singles.

Luke Bryan’s mother may have a multimillionaire son, but even her Florida home wasn’t spared from the devastation of Hurricane Michael this month. People reports that LeClaire Bryan invited a photographer to join her this past weekend as she surveyed the ruins of her residence in the Mexico Beach area. The photos show LeClaire leaning against the back of a gator vehicle and sobbing as she looks out at her destroyed neighborhood. “Most of her home was completely wiped out, despite her attempt to protect it by boarding her windows with plywood,” the outlet notes. “Paintings and artwork were stripped from the walls, cabinets were left flung open and piles of damaged furniture crowded the hallways, making it nearly impossible to walk through.” Perhaps most heartbreakingly, a framed copy of Bryan’s 2009 hit “Rain is a Good Thing”— his first #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart–lay shattered on the floor.

Thomas Rhett has yet to officially announced his hotly anticipated followup to his hit 2017 album Life Changes, but he teased a few enticing details in a recent interview with Sounds Like Nashville. “We do have a few really cool collabs and we’ll probably have a few more on this record, for sure,” Rhett said about working with other artists on the project. “Singing songs alone is fun, but singing songs with your friends is so much more fun. And I think that’s what this community is about, is about really supporting each other and getting your buddies on songs and making it a party.” He adds, “We’re still kind of in the baby phases of beginning this thing, but we’re gonna start trucking here in December and really try to make it happen.”Life Changes featured Rhett’s collaboration with dad Rhett Akins, “Drink a Little Beer,” as well as Thomas’ hit Maren Morris duet, “Craving You.”

Old Dominion Teases Next Album With In-Studio Pic

On Tuesday, the country band teased their next album with a pic on Twitter that shows frontman Matthew Ramsey and producer Shane McAnally working alongside one another in a studio. “It’s getting real,” the band captioned the snap.

Both of those LPs were likewise produced by McAnally, while Happy Endings also debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
Irony is a funny thing… Disgraced funnyman Bill Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in a Pennsylvania state prison on Tuesday for drugging and sexual assaulting a woman in his Philadelphia home. (Sixty others have accused the 81-year-old of similar crimes.) After being denied bail, the former Jell-O pudding pitchman was handcuffed and immediately led to prison, where TMZ and The Blast reported that his first meal included a chicken patty with gravy, mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, iced tea, and–wait for it– vanilla pudding. As TMZ puts it, “No official word on the brand of pudding, but hopefully it’ll be Jell-O. That’d be poetic justice, wouldn’t it?”

One area of our lives that we have to work so hard at is ‘us time.’ Between three children, and me being on the road so much, it’s important that I show Sara she’s loved and appreciated as much as I possibly can. So this is a video romanticizing about a special night out together–just us.” Aww! “Rumor” is off Brice’s November 2017 self-titled album.

Brothers Osborne Mock Bro Country, “Space Force” in “Shoot Me Straight” Vid
The Brothers Osborne may have just dropped the funniest country music video of the year. The duo’s four-and-a-half-minute clip for “Shoot Me Straight,” which dropped Monday on YouTube, opens with brothers T.J. and John rejecting several ideas for a bro-country-themed clip, including “Double-Oh Bros” and “Brothers of the Corn,” before laughing hilariously at another treatment idea: “Space Force.” They’re then kidnapped and forced to shoot among scantily clad women before being shot with tranquilizer darts and made to perform Weekend at Bernie’s-style for the clip, which indeed winds up featuring tons of women partying in the backs of pickup trucks. At the end, an ominous voice declares, “Space force!” Oh, as if all that’s not enough, there’s also a Dierks Bentley cameo!
Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus Discusses Parenting and “Living Country”
Rascal Flatts bassist Jay DeMarcus is raising his two kids with values he believes are traditionally southern. In an interview with People, DeMarcus and wife Allison take their son and daughter to church regularly so they “know who Jesus is,” DeMarcus says. “To live country is more of a state of mind, and not about cowboy hats and living on a farm,” he adds. “It’s about your core values.” For Allison, it’s important that her children have good manners–and that her daughter always wears a bow.
Thomas Rhett Says 2-Year-Old Daughter Is Smarter Than He Is
Thomas Rhett is awestruck that his kids are growing up so fast. As he tells People, 1-year-old Ada is walking and his 2-year-old, Willa Gray, is “having full-on conversations with me. She’s smarter than I am. It’s only going to continue to get worse, but it’s been such a life-changing experience in all the best ways possible.” In fact, Rhett loves being a dad so much he doesn’t mind that “it’s been such a crazy last couple of years” for him and his wife, Lauren Akins. “I never thought that I could love anything more than my wife — not that I love my kids more than my wife — it’s an equal love, but it’s just a different kind of love.”
After 4 kids, and the youngest being in school, Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines and her husband Chip Gaines thought they were done with kids… but nope! They welcomed a baby boy named Crew in June–but she says she never expected to have a fifth child at the age of 40. “I truly believed I was done,” Gaines writes in a new essay for The Magnolia Journal. “And yet, after eight years, here I am with a newborn in my arms.” She goes on to say that she was initially amused by doctors using the phrase geriatric pregnancy. “I laughed until I realized that’s what it’s actually called at my age,” she admits. “I feel like a first-time mom all over again. But, as hard and good and exhausting as it is, I’m seeing that I was made ready for this season just as much as I was made ready for the last.”
Well, there’s a first time for everything… but something tells us this has probably happened before.
There’s a couple in Gloucestershire, England who’s getting married next month. And they just posted an ad on a job site called Bark looking for someone to film them CONSUMMATING their marriage.
They’re offering a very generous $2,600 for someone to come to their hotel from 1:00 A.M. to 3:00 A.M. to film their first time having sex as a married couple.
And apparently, they asked the videographer who’s doing their wedding if he’d do it, but he said no… shocker.
MoviePass’ problems aren’t going away anytime soon, and now it’s raising prices for subscribers. On Tuesday, the company announced that within the next 30 days it will raise its monthly subscription price from $9.95 to $14.95 per month. And that new price won’t allow you to see just any movie: Films released on more than 1,000 screens will be “limited in their availability during the first two weeks, unless made available on a promotional basis.” After the ticket app went down Thursday–reportedly because the company temporarily ran out of money–CEO Mitch Lowe announced Monday that MoviePass would not be offering any tickets for the upcoming films The Meg and Christopher Robin. Meanwhile, the app experienced a second outage on Monday, prompting Twitter to fear that the end had arrived. “Oh no. They are done. It’s been inevitable for a while,” one user tweeted, while another hilariously wrote, “MoviePass goes down more often than DJ Khaled doesn’t.”
