Dierks Bentley tells the Daily News that he has a Zen moment when he’s on stage. “When I walk on stage, it’s the most peaceful moment.

It’s pure fun and what a great feeling.”

Thomas Rhett tells The Indianapolis Star that he looks up to classic rockers.“Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin never really played it safe. They were always pushing themselves.

Brett Eldredge and his dog, Edgar, are heading back to Illinois to celebrate the holidays with family. Brett says; “We got back home to Illinois, which is exciting because he gets to go crazy and run in the country.

Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers tells Billboard magazine that he loves bringing his dogs on tour. “We always say no matter how stressful things get or how homesick you get being away from the house or if you miss a note during the show — whatever stresses you out — getting a kiss from a dog at the end of the night makes all the spirits go right back up. We love bringing them on the road … we can keep them safe out on the road and make sure they’re protected because they are part of the family.”
