Jason Aldean tells CMT that he is a strict father when it comes to his daughters and their social media use. “I’m just really careful with that stuff. I want them to have a cool childhood, and I want them to have good things going on. I make my oldest daughter not accept people on her Instagram that she doesn’t know. If it’s family or friends, that’s cool. But she’s not allowed to open up where anybody can see her stuff and comment just because it’s inevitable. There are just horrible people out there who would love nothing more than to get on there and demean and be cruel, and I just really don’t want to open them up to that at this point. They’re going to deal with that I’m sure, but the longer I can keep that from happening, then that’s what I’m trying to do.”
Thomas Rhett is excited about touring with Kenny Chesney. He says; “Jason Aldean’s done it, Eric Church has done it, Miranda Lambert has done it — anybody who’s somebody has done that tour. There’s a reason for that.
Kenny has perfected the art of keeping 70,000 people entertained for two hours. It really is a terrifying thing to embark on. Last year, [opening for Chesney] at the Gillette [Stadium concert] was the first time I’d ever done two nights in a row at a stadium, first of all, and second of all, [it was my first time] playing in the dark. I learned so much, even in those two days, about how Kenny connects to the person sitting in the front row and also to the person sitting in the nosebleeds. That’s a very hard thing to do. So I’m excited to get out there and do our set, obviously, but also to just learn from Kenny.”
Jordan Davis tells Billboard magazine that “Singles You Up” has become a hookup song. “I’m fixin’ people up all over the country. I’ve had a buddy of mine say that his friend sent the song to a girl, so I need to follow up with him — I’m anxious to see if he got a date, or if she told him he was a creep.”
Sounds Like Nashville claims Kelly Clarkson, Little Big Town, Kane Brown, Alan Jackson and Jon Pardi have been added to the list of performers for the ACM Awards on Sunday, April 15th on CBS.
Dustin Lynch tells Connect Savannah that he has retired from playing golf. “I’ve retired. I got burned out in college. What little free time I’ve got now, I don’t want to be worrying about which way a golf ball goes. I’ve taken up fishing.”
High Valley star Brad Rempel tells Entertainment Focus that he always attends his sons’ football games no matter how hard it is to travel home. ”My boys both play football. One son is a quarterback and I try hard to fly home for all the football games and get back together. We just fight incredibly hard to get home as much as we can. You’d be surprised how much we’re at home. If you look at our schedule it looks like there’s no way but we do everything possible to get home as much we can. We’re also taking out a second bus for some of the tours this year so we can have a family with us and bring our wives and kids.”
