Luke Bryan’s Wife, “I kissed him first!”

Posted on: April 14th, 2014 by Chris

It seems like every woman wouldn’t mind to share a kiss with Luke Bryan. Well, the lady that gets to kiss him regularly, his wife Caroline, says it’s something you would probably have to do yourself, like she did.

“He was always a gentleman,” she tells People Country she says of their time dating at Georgia Southern. “We hung out as friends and he never made a move on me. I kissed him first! He was always scared of making a girl feel uncomfortable, he wouldn’t cross a line.”

When they met, Luke was a senior and Caroline was a freshman. She is also glad the world is now getting a chance to know Luke like she and their kids do. “In college, we used to go dancing in a club til 4 a.m. and he’s just as silly at home as he is on stage. He walks around dancing all day, just being goofy.”

Posted on: April 14th, 2014 by Chris

Blake Shelton co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards for the fourth year in a row last week, but Miranda Lambert says she has no ambitions to follow in his footsteps and host an awards show.

She tells People Country that Blake has a gift she doesn’t believe she has. “My comedic timing isn’t good. You know, the timing you naturally have to have. Blake is the best. I don’t know how he does it.”

She adds that she has “no desire” to try guiding and awards show. “I’m not good at that stuff not at all. I would totally fall flat on my face.”

Mirand’s new CD, Platinum, will be out June 3.

The USO Thanks Toby Keith For His Support

Posted on: April 12th, 2014 by Chris

Toby Keith was surprised this past Monday in Las Vegas at the taping of “ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops.”

Toby was the final performer of the night and turned to thank and shake hands with the military personnel on stage. When he got to the end of the line an executive with the USO took the mic and it was their turn to thank him. It was announced Toby was being presented the Spirit of the USO Award. “That caught me off guard,” he told the Tennessean.

Through the years, Toby has played 200 shows and entertained more than 250,000 men and women in uniform and their families. “I saw a need and a void the great Bob Hope left behind, and no one was filling it, but as hard as Big Dog Daddy tried, I couldn’t bring Marilyn Monroe.”

Other performers in the show included Lady Antebellum with Marine Corps Capt. John Ed Auer and Marine Corps Capt. Matt Smith on “Compass,” Florida Georgia Line on “People Back Home,” George Strait and Merle Haggard on “The Fightin’ Side of Me,” and Keith Urban, who sang with Navy sonar technician Destiny Mills Coates on “For You.”

“ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops” will air on CBS May 20th.

Trisha Yearwood Selling Her Nashville Home

Posted on: April 11th, 2014 by Chris

Trisha Yearwood’s Nashville area home is on the market. Asking price for the 6,500 square foot home is $2.2 million. She says since Garth owns property nearby, it just didn’t make sense to keep it.

She tells the Tennessean, “It is a little bittersweet for me. I haven’t lived in it consistently (for a while) but when I’ve been in Nashville, which is a good bit, that’s where I always stay. It’s been a wonderful safe haven for me.”

Last month, Garth and Trisha announced they would be moving to Nashville to spend more time there as Garth gets back to his music fulltime.
