CMT claims Brett Eldredge and Meghan Trainor are going to do a CMT Crossroads special that will air on September 3. The hour-long concert special was taped earlier this year in Franklin, Tennessee.
Brett tells the network; “I just love Meghan’s sound — she’s got a funky, swaggy thing to her music that no one else is doing. She’s one-of-a-kind, and I’m excited to perform with her again, this time on Crossroads. We’re going to make everybody feel alive. We’re going to make them feel it in their hearts and their souls. We’re going to bring big vocals and magic moments.”
Chris Lane tells Glamour magazine that he loves singing more than baseball. “It’s crazy how things turned out because never did I think I’d be singing in front of people, let alone in baseball stadiums of all things. Baseball was all I did my whole life and to be hindered through those surgeries…I was worried things wouldn’t work out after college, but looking back, I’m really happy all that stuff happened because I’m doing something that I really love now.”
Keith Urban tells Billboard magazine that he buys most of his guitars on eBay. “I find a lot of guitars on eBay… I don’t collect them, but I end up with a bunch of them.”
WKRN claims the Cheatham County, Tennessee police recently arrested Denver Taylor for stealing Little Big Town’s equipment trailer. Taylor thought he was going to get musical instruments, but instead ended up with toys from the band members’ kids. Taylor led cops on a three-county chase before being caught.
Hollywoodlife.com claims Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have no time to get married. A source tells the website; “Their schedules are so busy, that logistically it would be kind of a headache trying to arrange a wedding, so they’d rather wait till Gwen’s residency is over and take their time so they can do it properly and plan something beautiful and special when the time is right. With Gwen’s Vegas residency and Blake’s constant touring and duties with The Voice there really isn’t any time to get married. And instead of getting engaged and waiting forever to get married they want to be in a spot where they can do both quick and the way they want to do it.”
Kenny Chesney tells Billboard Magazine that his family’s love of music made him want to be a singer. “My mom sings, so does my Aunt Sharon. So I thought, ‘Maybe I should accompany myself and see what happens.’ All of a sudden, I was playing weekends at a fraternity house in Johnson City, Tennessee and at a lot of bars.”
