Sounds Like Nashville claims Dolly Parton’s hatmaker recently created a custom, bedazzled cowboy hat for Bebe Rexha. The hat features 6,000 Swarvoski crystals. Bebe tells the website; ”Friday I said, ‘I really want a hat full of crystals.’ I hit up everybody and was like, ‘How are we going to make this work?’ Somehow, I got a stylist to hit up Dolly Parton’s hat maker, and they bought 6,000 Swarovski crystals. It was very expensive, but I said it’s worth it. It’s very heavy, but I almost cried because my grandma listened to Dolly Parton growing up—she was her favorite artist. I felt like it was cool. Have a good luck hat on. I hope it doesn’t fall. It’s insane.”
Maren Morris tells People magazine that being married doesn’t feel any different than when she was dating her husband. “Honestly, it’s still sinking in, but even the night of our wedding we realized that it’s not that different. I think the weight of it hits you when we said our vows to each other in front of our friends and family. It’s like, I’m promising forever to someone in front of all of our loved ones, so that’s a huge deal, but as far as our relationship it doesn’t feel different. We’ll always be best friends.”

Chris Stapleton tells Billboard magazine that he and Justin Timberlake may record more songs together. “We were talking about something earlier today. We just have fun. It looks like the odd couple to most people, but we have a lot of the same musical influences — old R&B and soul music and things like that. We just enjoy hanging out. There will probably always be music being made, whether it’s writing or talking about music or playing music for each other… We’re both at a phase in our life where we want to have fun to play music. That’s why it makes sense.”

Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay tells The Tennessean that their new song ‘Tequila’ is meant to take you back in time. “I think smelling something or tasting something is the most nostalgic you can get about something. And if you taste something and it immediately takes you back to that place, it’s like that with a lot of things like whiskey or red wine. This song is talking about how you can drink all of those things and be fine, but as soon as you taste tequila it takes you right back to that place with that girl. It hits you right in the feels.”
