Kecey Musgraves Opens Up About “Keep It To Yourself”

Posted on: April 26th, 2014 by Chris

Kacey Musgraves admits her latest song, “Keep It To Yourself,” was a bit difficult to write as it was about an ex.

“I was going through a bit of a personal down moment and a break-up, and self- discipline has never been something that I’ve been very good at,” she tells Nashville.com.

“So, when this song talks about keeping it to yourself, it’s just about knowing and wanting to know how that person feels about you like in a situation, but just knowing that it’s not good for you anymore and that you literally have to be the strong person and say, ‘Don’t tell me, because it’s just going to rope me back in.’”

She feels it’s a song a lot of people can relate to as breaking up is hard and it’s not easy getting over that hump where you know everything will be okay. “Literally you just have to be like, ‘If you have feelings for me, just put them on a shelf,’ like I don’t want to hear about them.”

You can find “Keep It To Yourself” on Kacey’s album, Same Trailer Different Park, and catch her CMT Croddroads special with Katy Perry June 13.

Eric Church Puts Scalpers On Notice

Posted on: April 25th, 2014 by Chris

Eric Church is not a fan of scalpers and today he proved it. More than 14,000 tickets have sold for his upcoming show in Minneapolis but after running checks it turns out about 1,000 were bought by scalpers and he took them back and is reselling them.

“A lot of acts just want to sell as many tickets as they can and they don’t care who they sell them to,” he says. “I want my fans to be the ones who buy tickets to my shows, and I want scalpers to back off. I can’t stop ticket scalpers completely, but I can definitely make it harder for them.”

He wants to make sure fans, not scalpers, have a chance to buy the tickets for the hottest seats for the September show. 902 tickets that were sold to names or credit cards reached their ticket purchasing limit and were cancelled, then resold to fans.

Eric says his team will be tracking ticket sales at all of his Outsiders World Tour stops.

Jerrod Niemann Staying Mum About Garth’s New Music

Posted on: April 25th, 2014 by Chris

Garth Brooks is expected to announce plans for a world tour in the coming months, and he’s hinted there might be some new music before the end of summer. The man who has the inside information on that is Jerrod Niemann.

ABC News says the word around Nashville is, since he’s had a hand in writing songs for him before, including “Good Ride Cowboy,” he’d be in on the news. When asked about it Jerrod said, “When I chat with him, I don’t hit him up for a bunch of details,” and for good reason apparently. “You know, I wouldn’t probably trust myself with any details ’cause I get so excited.”

While he claims not to have any info on Garth’s recording plans, he says he’s just as excited as everyone else about Garth’s return to the stage. “Any day that Garth Brooks cares to make music is a good day for everybody. So, yes. We all love Garth, and we can’t wait for him to get back out there.”
