Luke Bryan tells CMT that he is excited about continuing American Idol for another season. “I’ve had people come up to me saying it’s a big deal, man, when you can get a show picked up the second year. That means some good things are happening. We’re starting to (have) chemistry as judges. It’s really a contestant-driven show. And if we can put contestants on there that (make) people want to tune in and rally behind, it makes the show even more special.”
One Country claims Luke Bryan’s mom and wife recently drove out on his farm to feed several geese. Luke’s mom LeClaire was throwing crumbs to them when they began to chase her. She jumped in Caroline’s truck before they took off.
Steven Tyler tells Entertainment Tonight that he has watched the new American Idol judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie. “I love them in their own way. It is just that there’s a certain magic between someone that goes, ‘Yo, shut up.’ Like, I would tell Randy, ‘What are you talking about?’ J.Lo, it was just a little different, and I don’t see the interplay between them now. And I remember going to malls in the Midwest when I’m on tour there … My security guy and I would go to malls and these women would come up and go, ‘Do you know that I wake the kids up when you come on so they can see J.Lo and Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson because we loved the way you played with each other?'”

Carrie Underwood tells People magazine that she likes when her young son, Isaiah, compliments her. “I feel the prettiest when my kid says something that’s just super sweet. This morning, Melissa, my hair, and makeup artist, was starting to put my makeup on and he’s all in his pajamas and he said, ‘No, don’t do that!’ and I was like, ‘Why, baby, why are you upset?’ And he said, ‘I like you just how you are.’ He didn’t want me to put makeup on. That made me feel pretty. I know I wasn’t [pretty] because I had just woken up and hadn’t brushed my teeth yet, but he made me feel pretty.”
People magazine claims Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are looking to move to a new area of Nashville. A source tells the magazine; “They are completely done with the neighborhood. The decision came after her fall. Security issues also contributed to the couple’s decision to house hunt. They’ve been having a lot of issues with neighbors letting people in the community to look around and it all escalated after the fall.”
Eric Church credits his success to his mother. He tells Pop Culture Country; “With my career, she’s always been a person that’s been really positive through times that I couldn’t find a positive streak and she was always really positive, and very much believes in tough it out, keep working hard. That’s her motto with stuff like that. I’ve always been impressed with that stuff. Then musically, she’s where I get my talent from. She sings great, always has her mom sang great. I owe my musical chops to her. And she still sings some. Career-wise, I owe her everything. And life-wise she’s given me a lot of the qualities that it has taken for me to get me where I am. Not only as a musician, but as a man.”
