Randy Houser’s Police Chase For A Good Cause

Posted on: March 11th, 2016 by Chris

Social media reports of a police chase involving a black Pontiac and Randy Houser started popping up on yesterday afternoon (March 10).

The realistic scene showed cops chasing the car from his recent music video for “We Went” through downtown Nashville, Music Row and across a bridge connecting Nashville’s east side to downtown.

Turns out, Nashville’s Metro Police Department were in on the filming of a video that ended with Houser making a nice donation to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee at a church on 3rd Ave.

Blake Shelton Announces Album Release Date

Posted on: March 8th, 2016 by Chris

The new song Blake Shelton released today, “Came Here To Forget,” immediately raced to the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ Country Chart. It’s the first song sent to radio from his forthcoming 12th studio album which will be called, ‘If I’m Honest’, and will be released May 20. “This is the most excited I’ve been about a new album since the release of my second record,” he said in a press release

While it may seem biographical given what’s happened in Blake’s personal life over the last year, “Came Here To Forget” was written by Craig Wiseman and Deric Ruttan, and is an intimate snapshot of a random couple’s encounter at a bar. Still, Blake says he connects with it on a personal level. “I’ve had a lot of music over the years but, I don’t think I’ve ever had a song before that’s such a direct look into my life.”

As he finishes his winter tour, Blake is coaching talent on the 10th season of NBC’s hit show, ‘The Voice.’

Listen: Blake Shelton Releases “Came Here To Forget”

Posted on: March 8th, 2016 by Chris

Blake Shelton released a new song from a new album today. “Came Here To Forget” shoots straight from the get-go about where Blake was after he split from Miranda Lambert and took interest in Gwen Stefani.

“Girl you gettin’ over him, and I’m gettin’ over her,” he sings at the start. Blake didn’t write the song but the pair who did, Craig Wiseman and Deric Ruttan, have written several Blake songs and know him well. Given what he’s said about the personal nature of his new album one can accept the story told as truth.

It’s defiantly one of his most expressive songs in the last several years.

The song will be on his next album that’s due out late spring/early summer.

Chase Rice Expands Clothing Line

Posted on: March 7th, 2016 by Chris

Chase Rice is expanding his clothing line to include workout attire.  His brand is called HDEU, which stands for ‘Head Down, Eyes Up’. 

Rice told “Country Weekly,” that was his motto while he was trying to recover from a football injury his junior year at the University of North Carolina.  He says it caught on with his music fans after they noticed it handwritten on his baseball hats. 

In addition to hats and t-shirts, Rice’s clothing line now includes gym-friendly hoodies, beanies, training pants for women and more.  “I wanted to make some stuff that I can wear to work out in,” he says. “For me personally, if I’m working out or playing sports with HDEU on my chest or anywhere on my body, it’s going to remind me of that mentality. If you keep that mentality, you block all the good and the bad out and just focus on your task. Literally, the only person who can stop you is you.”

More ‘Little Fishers?’ Carrie Says, “At Least One More.”

Posted on: March 7th, 2016 by Chris

Not long after celebrating her son’s first birthday, Carrie Underwood tells People that more children are in her future.

In an interview with People, she was asked where she sees herself in five years, and she said she hopes to give Isaiah a sibling.

“I definitely see one more baby. At least,” she said. “Oh, Isaiah will be in kindergarten. Mike will most likely be retired by then. He’ll be 40! He’s like the second-oldest on the team already.”

She adds, she and husband Mike Fisher plan on their current Tennessee home to be their “forever home.”

“We’ll be living out here in the country,” the singer predicts. “We have land that’s five minutes away that we’re going to build on.”

After A 2-Year Battle With Cancer, Joey Feek Has Died

Posted on: March 4th, 2016 by Chris

“My wife’s greatest dream came true today. She is in Heaven.” That’s the message from Rory Feek shared today in his blog, ‘This Life I Live‘ as his wife Joey passed away after a 2 year battle with cancer.

“The cancer is gone, the pain has ceased and all her tears are dry,” he writes. “Joey is in the arms of her beloved brother Justin and using her pretty voice to sing for her savior.”

Joey had been in what Rory had described as a deep sleep the last several days saying it was one they didn’t feel she would come out of. “At 2:30 this afternoon, as we were gathered around her, holding hands and praying.. my precious bride breathed her last. And a moment later took her first breath on the other side.”

As for his plans, he’s heading back to Tennessee with his kids saying it’s where Joey will be. “After four-and-a-half months in Indiana, we will soon be back home in Tennessee. Me, and our little one, with our older daughters. It’s hard for me to imagine being there without Joey, but at the same time…it is where she wants us to be. It’s where she will be.”

Blake Buys Gwen A Horse

Posted on: March 2nd, 2016 by Chris

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton actually do have a lot in common including a love of horses.

Gwen gushed in January about her new horse, Halo, which she called her “best present ever,” and Blake confirmed it yesterday (March 1). “I got her a horse and I got myself a horse at the same time,” he told Entertainment Tonight‘s Nancy O’Dell.

Look at my fancy fringe!! #cantbelivemylife Gx #Halo

A photo posted by Gwen Stefani (@gwenstefani) on

“Gwen, she loves riding and she loves horses. It’s actually so funny that people are so shocked by that, but if you can name me one girl on the planet that doesn’t love horses or just think that they are beautiful…”

The two will get to spend more time together on the new season of ‘The Voice.’ Gwen isn’t a coach this season but will be a mentor for Team Blake in a few weeks.
