Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard tells Billboard magazine that his wife is responsible for “Meant To Be.” He said he had no idea what he and Bebe Rexha would write about before she said; “Don’t stress about it. If it’s meant to be, it’ll be. So just go in there and have a positive attitude and think creatively and you guys are gonna write something great.”
Maren Morris tells Rolling Stone that she drinks tequila before her shows. “Right before I go out, we usually put on some Lauryn Hill or Fugees, and I’ll do a shot of tequila, just to calm my nerves. These are big shows. I’ve literally come from honky-tonks. It’s 20,000 people sometimes. I’m confident, but I’m also scared, and I think that’s a nice medium to be living in.”
Bebe Rexha tells the Sun newspaper that she is single and doesn’t do dating apps. “Am I single? I’m very single. It’s very hard to meet anybody in the business. If it’s a guy, if it’s a girl, usually in the business they all cheat. This is really so negative, right? No, but it’s true. It’s very hard, so I might just remain single forever! And just be free. I don’t do Tinder because I felt Tinder was more of like a just in and out thing. I have to have feelings. I honestly don’t know any of those apps.”
Headline Planet claims the Backstreet Boys, Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean will perform at the CMT Awards on June 6th. Little Big Town will host.
Little Big Town’s Phillip Sweet tells CMT that the band has no plans to roast any Country stars when they host the CMT Awards on June 6th. “I think if we roast with four people it might be overwhelming. When you prank four-times over, you’re bound to get pranked back.”
Morgan Wallen tells Billboard magazine that his mother is the one who signed him up to audition for ”The Voice” in 2014. ”My mom, actually. I had never even seen the show, never even heard of it, to be honest. That was probably around the same time that I was messing around with guitar, and I would play around bonfires with my friends, and people were telling me that I was good. I’m like, “yeah, whatever, you guys have to tell me that.” But [my mom] signed me up and drove me out there to tryouts.”
