Brett Young tells CMT that he wanted to do a Crossroads special with Boyz II Men because they have always influenced him and his songwriting. “Boyz II Men was so present and prevalent in my life when I started writing songs. Every once in a while, when you guys sing your solos I can tell who’s who, but when you’re singing together, it’s like who’s doing what right now? It pushed me as a singer before I even knew it was doing that.”
Old Dominion’s Matthew Ramsey tells Billboard magazine that he hears the band’s music everywhere he goes. “I pulled up next to this girl at a stoplight, who was just jamming to, “Said Nobody.” It wasn’t a single, so she was listening to the album and had no clue that I was sitting right next to her. She couldn’t see me, she was just going to town. Like, the car was shaking she was singing so hard!”
Michael Ray tells Hollywoodlife.com that Carly Pearce and her mother are not hiring a wedding planner to assist them with their ceremony.“They’re not hiring a wedding planner — they’re taking the whole thing on! They have this unique connection like they can speak without even talking. So I just sit back and trust the process. Her mom has definitely taken a lot of the load off of Carly and is helping her quite a bit with planning. But Carly has her head up so much better than I do with having so many different things going on at once. She’s so much better than me at that! She can take on, like, nine different things at once and is able to compose herself. I’m very fortunate to have both of them taking care of it.”
Billboard magazine claims Jake Owen is going to sing “Made For You” at Michael Ray and Carly Pearce’s wedding.
The Inquisitor claims Bachelor star Colton Underwood recently referenced Carrie Underwood’s song “Before He Cheats” while describing how he felt at times during the show. He posted, “At moments I wanted to take Louisville slugger to both headlights… even slash a hole in all four tires, but I decided to jump the fence instead.”
Riley Green tells Billboard magazine that he would play music for his baseball team in school. “On baseball trips, coaches used to let me take my guitar on the back of the bus and I’d write songs about people. It was really just a thing where I played around campfires and wrote songs my buddies would laugh about.”
