Posted on: August 6th, 2015 by Chris

Miranda Lambert has been hacked!

According to In Touch magazine, a woman going by the name “Brenda,” claims she has over 35,000 of Miranda’s personal emails.

If true, the hacker could have an inside look at Miranda and Blake Shelton’s divorce. There are still questions about it’s legality and the reason the records were sealed.

She was selling the information to tabloids before they realized she broke privacy laws.

“This is a very serious crime — there are potential federal and state violations,” says someone who specializes in Internet and social media cases. “Brenda” could face “a tremendous amount of prison time,” explained Maryland-based attorney Bradley Shear.

Billy Currington Thanks Tim McGraw For The Shape He’s In

Posted on: August 6th, 2015 by Chris

Billy Currington may be in the best shape of his life after spending the summer on tour with workout maniac Tim McGraw.

“It’s so inspiring to watch how it all goes down,” Billy told the media at a recent celebration in Nashville for his chart-topping song “Don’t It”. “So he has me getting on it now. I came on the tour not looking close to that, so it’s been a lot of fun.”

But, he adds Tim’s at a different level when it comes to the intensity.

“For him it’s working out, you know, a lot. And for us we pick out about three or four hours of the day…not ten,” he laughed. “It’s pretty amazing to watch, like where does he get the energy from? Because the foods that I hear he eats, it’s like really? That fuels you to go every day like that?”

Billy will continue to try and keep up with Tim for the rest of the summer.

Blake’s First On Camera Interview After Divorce

Posted on: August 5th, 2015 by Chris

In his first on-camera interview since his divorce from Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton was focused on ‘The Voice’.

The Entertainment Tonight cameras rolled two days after the announcement, and he was in form fast in the interview with his mentor for the upcoming 9th season of ‘The Voice’, Brad Paisley, as he nodded to the Solo cup in his hand and said, “I thought I”d get it started early,” and admitting that there was “a little vodka” in the cup saying, “It’s been one of those weeks.”

As expected, he was not wearing his wedding ring, and when he was asked how he was doing, he candidly said, “Well, I got divorced.”

Thompson Square Adding A Member

Posted on: August 4th, 2015 by Chris

Husband and wife duo, Thompson Square, are having a baby! They made the announcement on Twitter this afternoon (8/4).

“We’ve been together for a long time and we’ve done a lot of things and we just really felt there was something missing,” Keifer Thompson told People. “We love what we do, we love the music business, but we didn’t want to deprive ourselves of having a family.”

Shawna says the weird pregnancy cravings she’s always heard about kicked in right away. “I was eating strange combinations,” she says.

“That’s before she even knew,” added Keifer. “She was like, ‘I think I might need to go get a test because I just ate a cantaloupe followed by a pickle chaser.’”

As for names, it’s early but Keifer says he’s letting Shawna choose the name, but he has a few ideas.

“Maybe we should go with something really weird and random. Toothpaste Thompson. That is a great alliteration — and we are songwriters, you know.”

As for the due date, they included “#Jan2016″ in their tweet.

Posted on: August 3rd, 2015 by Chris

Reba and Narvel Blackstock have separated after 26 years of marriage.

The couple have actually been separated for several months, the Associated Press reports. It’s not clear if they’ve filed for divorce — a representative for the Big Machine Record Group declined to comment.

A quote from Reba’s Website says, “Despite this being the end of their marriage, they continue to support each other. They have worked together for 35 years and will continue to do so. They have asked that you respect their privacy during this time.”

They are second country couple to split in two weeks. On July 20, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert officially divorced. Narvel was more than jReba’s husband. He runs a management company that represents her, as well as Blake and Kelly Clarkson.
