Blake And Gwen Plus CMA Noms In Today’s Nashville Roundup

Blake Shelton tells Entertainment Tonight that Gwen Stefani did not like his suggestion that she proposes to him. “She goes, ‘You know this is not how this is gonna work’.”

A source tells Entertainment Tonight, “Gwen and Blake have come so far and are happier than they have ever been. Blake talks about Gwen nonstop. Just this week his friends were talking about how he glows when he refers to her. He gushes about her a lot and it’s really sweet. They have talked a lot about marriage, but have decided that life has been so great that they don’t want to rock the boat yet. They are so incredibly in love and have supported each other through tough times. They truly are best friends and have made their lives work together despite their very busy schedules. They both came from difficult situations and marriages that didn’t last. They have worked hard to get past that and so appreciate what they have with one another. they feel as if they are soul mates and don’t need a ring and a wedding at the moment.”

Kelly Clarkson tells Extra that Blake Shelton’s appendicitis was worse than hers. “His ruptured. When he was younger. He’s had it way worse than me.”

Kelly says she knew she was having surgery after the Billboard Music Awards. “I’d been in contact with my doctors. I knew I was getting the surgery right after, I was onstage with one of my friends singing with me, battling, surviving cancer — a lot of people doing things way more cooler than me.

Midland was recently performing in Nashville when they brought Chris Isaak out on stage to sing his classic hit ”Wicked Game”

Brett Young tells Billboard magazine that he was nervous about co-writing songs with his friend, Gavin DeGraw. “Being friends with Gavin for years now, I’ve avoided intentionally asking him to write with me. I’ve never wanted to mix business with pleasure. Now that we both live in Nashville, we’ve been spending quite a bit of time together, and for whatever reason, I felt comfortable with it. He knew that my record label had been asking for what they called a “life song” — anything that wasn’t about a girl. And he said, “Well if that’s what they want, I want to write something to make the record. This is your record, you need to write your story.”

Chris Young was recently performing in Glasgow, Scotland when he covered Garth Brooks’ song ”Papa Loved Mama”.

Eli Young Band lead singer Mike Eli tells Rolling Stone magazine that the band’s live shows are thrilling. “We always want our live show to be a fun roller coaster ride for everyone.”

Brett Eldredge tells Songwriters Universe that he was a terrible songwriter when he first moved to Nashville. ”I moved to Nashville to be a singer. In the beginning, I didn’t know anything about songwriting. I kind of just threw myself into it. I found that I had a knack for it after writing a bunch of terrible songs that eventually got better and better and collaborating with anybody that would join me.”
