Brantley Gilbert Married!

Posted on: June 30th, 2015 by Chris

More than a decade after they first met, Brantley Gilbert has finally married the woman of his dreams.

He and Amber Cochran said their “I do’s” on Sunday (June 28) at his home in Georgia, according to Country Airplay.

Amber is a schoolteacher from his hometown that he dated on and off for years before finally deciding to settle down. He says she’s the one he references in several songs including “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” and “More Than Miles” and describes her as “the one that (almost) got away.”

He told People last November, “I’m a blessed man to have her back in my life and can’t wait to make her my wife.”

Look for the newly weds to show off some new ink soon, too. They told Taste of Country they have plans to have something tattooed on their ring fingers.

Dustin Lynch On Tattoos, “I’m Scared Of The Lifetime Commitment”

Posted on: June 30th, 2015 by Chris

Unlike Brantley Gilbert or the guys in Florida Georgia Line who seem to add to their tatto collection every few months, Dustin Lynch is staying tattoo-free, for the time being. It’s not that he doesn’t like tattoos.

He tells Glamour, “I’m kind of a fan of tattoos, but I’m scared of the lifetime commitment. I feel like I would wake up six months later and want something different. Like why is there a grasshopper on my arm?”

Even if Dustin liked what he chose to get tattooed on his body, he’s afraid it might turn out bad, like the deer tracks tattoo Blake Shelton got on his arm that often gets mistaken for ladybugs. “What the hell was he thinking there? Now he has to put up with that the rest of his life,” he says.

Chase Bryant Trying To Hold His Weight With Tim

Posted on: June 29th, 2015 by Chris

Chase Bryant is enjoying opening Tim McGraw’s Shotgun Rider tour. He’s not enjoying working out with him as much.

Chase says he accepts the challenge to do cross-fit daily, even though some of the exercises are a little crazy. Among the exercises Tim does: hammer swings, monster tire flipping and sled pulls using a 100-pound sled. He also is known to strap 40-pound bags of sand to his back and run amphitheater steps, up and down, 20 times.

“When you’re 48 years old and you look that good, it’s hard for a 22-year-old not want to get out there and look that good, too,Chase tells to Taste of Country.

Billy Currington is also on tour with them, and he too accepts the challenge to do cross-fit, even though that’s a new exercise to him.

Glenn Campbell’s Daughter, “His Mental Status Has Declined Seriously”

Posted on: June 26th, 2015 by Chris

Glen Campbell is slipping into the late stages of Alzheimers. His daughter Ashley tells Rolling Stone that even though he is physically quite healthy, his mental status has declined seriously.

“He’s calm most of the time, which is kind of all you can ask for in the late stages, that he’s calm, content and happy and feels a lot of love in his life. Because he has aphasia, he can’t really communicate very well. He doesn’t really understand anything that anyone tells him anymore and he can’t communicate with us very well. But he understands body language and sometimes very small words.”

“Overall, he’s just very happy and content in his own world and we just love hanging out with him. It’s all we can ask for.”

Ashley is featured in the documentary “I’ll Be Me”, which will air Sunday night on CNN.

Carrie Underwood Not Leaving Nashville

Posted on: June 26th, 2015 by Chris

There’s nothing certain in the life of an aging pro athlete other than, at some point, you will have to hang ‘em up. For many, it means moving from team to team as they try to fill holes in rosters with veteran players for a year or two. For Carrie Underwood’s husband, Mike Fisher, it means will he finish his hockey career in Nashville..

ESPN reports that the Nashville Predators have re-signed the 35-year-old veteran center to a two-year contract worth $8.8 million (June 26) with a no-trade clause.

“Mike Fisher is a player and person anyone would want in their organization,” Predators general manager David Poile said Friday in a release. “He is a smart two-way player who contributes on special teams and is solid in the faceoff circle, as well as a member of our leadership group, a respected voice in the dressing room and an integral part of the Nashville community.”

Carrie is currently in the studio working on new music.
