Dan + Shay’s iPhone Adventure In Today’s Nashville Roundup

Variety magazine claims NBC has finalized their lineup for their ”Elvis All-Star Tribute” on February 17th. Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Pistol Annies, Darius Rucker, and Blake Shelton will either perform or appear

Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers tells People magazine that he created ‘Speechless’ on his phone. “I had this title ‘Speechless’ in my phone. You’re at the altar waiting for your bride to walk down the aisle, then that moment happens and you have nothing to say. I remember being up there on my wedding day and she walked up and I was at a loss for words.”

Dustin Lynch tells People magazine that he doesn’t kiss and tell when writing songs about past relationships. “There are a lot of songs that are spot-on something I’ve been a part of or a relationship I’ve been in or gone through. [But] I’m not naming names. I think that’s exciting for me and fun for people, because I know I’m going to have some speculators out there.”

Dierks Bentley tells Spin magazine that he sometimes has to reassure his wife that certain songs aren’t about her. “Sometimes I have to tell [my wife] I’m just writing that! There’s serious stuff in here. I make records that can get heavy. There’s stuff not about us in there, like the infidelity.”

Jason Aldean tells Billboard magazine that he always considers how songs will sound live when he records them. “My live shows are such an important selling tool for the record for me – I’m constantly listening for things that are going to translate live. Sometimes, I get lost in thinking, ‘Man, that song sounds really cool. It would be fun to play live.’ I’ve listened to the vibe of the song so much that I have forgotten to listen to the record, and the lyrics aren’t really that good, but the song would be fun to play … I’m constantly thinking about how those songs are going to fit in.”

Luke Bryan tells Rolling Stone magazine that he didn’t think much about his musical legacy until he met Lionel Richie. “At the end of the day, your legacy will be who you were. When I met Lionel Richie, everything about his legacy was vindicated when I met him. He left you [thinking] your five minutes with Lionel Richie is about the coolest thing ever. So if my legacy is I circled this globe and traveled this world and everybody I came in contact with at the end of the day, they’re like, “That’s a cool dude” … if I do all that, it’ll show in the music, and then people will be able to feel all that through the music — and that’ll be my legacy.”
