Kelsea Ballerini tells Elite Daily that she and her husband, Morgan Evans, have adopted Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman’s ‘two-week rule.’ “Instead of going home, I’ll fly to him or vice versa. But this is definitely the year of putting in the effort. I just think as much as we are in this phase of our careers where it’s like, building the foundation and it’s really important to be busy and to be doing as much as we can, obviously our relationship comes first.”
Jason Aldean tells Pop Culture Country that he would like to see a woman win Entertainer of the Year at the ACM Awards. “I think when the first ballot comes through, there’s like 50 people on the ballot, and for whatever reason, there were no females this year. But I definitely think there’s some that are worthy of being there, for sure. Miranda [Lambert], Carrie [Underwood]. I told Lauren Alaina tonight, I was like, ‘Man, you sang your behind off tonight.’ She sounded amazing. So you got her and Kelsea Ballerini. Some new ones coming up; Maren Morris, who I think is phenomenal, too. So I definitely think there’s some that should be represented in there and honestly, down the road, if they happen to win one, I’ll be the first one up congratulating them ’cause I think it’s probably a little overdue.”
Chris Stapleton gave an update yesterday on his wife and newborn twins. He tweeted; ”Morgane & the boys are doing great & we appreciate everyone’s support!”
