Maren And Ryan: We’re Having A Baby In Today’s Nashville Roundup

Lady Antebellum lead singer Hillary Scott tells that there’s a big difference between a country artist and a pop artist going on tour. “We love being on the road. We hit our points after months and months where we were a little road weary. The difference in the pop world and country world is, we leave home most of us based out of Nashville on a Wednesday or Thursday night and get home on a Sunday or Monday morning, and we have a couple of days to recoup at home. For a big pop tour, you can be gone for a year, because of the way they do routing. We get some of that time, which makes it easier. We feel like we can do both. That’s what keeps us on the road consistently.”

Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey tells The Journal Star that growing up he was a fan of ‘Grunge music.’ “I was a kid, and I loved all of that music. I think I heard Pearl Jam first and just thought, ‘What is this?’ There was just so much raw feeling and raw emotion that spoke to me. And all of that guitar work made me want to lock myself in a room and learn how to play guitar.”

Maren Morris and her husband, Ryan Hurd, are expecting their first child together. She posted a picture of herself grabbing her pregnant belly along with the caption, “The irony is just too rich that after a year of living in the ‘GIRL’ headspace, the universe would give us a baby boy to even things out. See you in 2020, little one.”

Carly Pearce tells that she and Michael Ray had a great wedding. “I feel great. We are both just kind of sad that it’s over. It’s like you do all this planning and it just goes so fast! We seriously had the most magical, perfect night. When the doors opened for the first time and I saw him, that was just an overwhelming feeling. Moments of tears throughout the night. I wanted an outdoor wedding. I picked my venue because of the outdoor space and it poured rain on my wedding day. But, it ended up being so magical in the second location that we picked, in a barn, so just don’t sweat that stuff, because it’s going to be wonderful no matter what.”

Blake Shelton tells Country Living magazine that his tour bus is always stocked with snacks.“Cheetos are my #1 snack on the bus. I decided years ago that Cheetos can’t be that bad for you, because they’re basically orange air.”

Brantley Gilbert tells that he never set out to become a country artist. “People ask me all the time why I chose country music, why I like writing country music. It’s not so much that I chose the genre; I feel like as a writer, I explore a lot of different genres and a lot of different writing methods and things. I’ve never really looked at it like I’m going directly into country music. I’m a country guy. I grew up in a small town. We spent time in the woods and out in the fields loading hay. You know, doing country things. When I write songs about my life, they’re about country things.”
