Tyler Farr Shelved, On Vocal Rest

Posted on: January 27th, 2016 by Chris

Tyler Farr has been forced to cancel his tour with Lee Brice after being put on total vocal rest after undergoing surgery to remove a polyp on his vocal cords.

The ‘Life Off My Years Tour’ was announced in November of 2015 and is starting February 4 in Salisbury, MD, but in a post to Twitter on yesterday (January 27), Tyler broke the news that he won’t be able to make the dates.

Tyler, who is an operatically trained vocalist, says he first noticed he was having problems last year when he was touring with Jason Aldean. He was diagnosed with a polyp on his vocal cords after coming down with bronchitis to end 2015.

“This is the last thing I would’ve ever expected,” he said in a press release. “I sing hard, and I give it everything I have every night, but I really believed I was putting my training to work. After a No. 1 song, an awesome tour with Jason and getting engaged, this is not how I thought I was going to be winding up 2015.”

Carrie Underwood Takes A Page From Tim McGraw

Posted on: January 26th, 2016 by Chris

Carrie Underwood is known for having what may be the best set of legs in country music and she earned them the hard way,through hours in the gym. Over the years she’s made no secret of her workout schedule, and it seems even though she’ll be touring this summer with her son, Isaiah, she isn’t going to let the road slow her down.

New tour toys! Had a #mobilegym made for this year! Now I can work out anywhere! (There are a few finishing touches that still need to be done to it) My new motto is: #ShreddedBySummer The one and only @eveoverlandfitness is going to help me get there. I'll post progress as I go! I'm super excited!

Jason Aldean Talks Babies With Brittany Kerr

Posted on: January 22nd, 2016 by Chris

“Sooner rather than later,” that’s what Jason Aldean recently told Entertainment Tonight when they asked him about plans for a baby between him and his wife, Brittany Kerr.

“She’s a lot younger than I am,” he said, “so I gotta make this happen quick. I don’t want to be the old dad!”

“It’s something we definitely want, at least one kid and possibly two, we’ll see,” he continued. “It’s something we’ve talked about a lot. Hopefully in the next couple years.”

The couple will celebrate their one-year anniversary in March, but there’s no concrete news of a baby, just talk.
