Hollywoodlife.com claims Miranda Lambert is trying to avoid the mistakes she made with Blake Shelton with her new husband Brendan McLoughlin. A source tells the website, “With her second marriage, Miranda’s learned from that and is trying to avoid that same mistake and Brendan is on the same page. He has no issue joining her on tour and taking time off from work. He’s happy and feels very lucky that he can take the time to spend with her. Miranda never pressures Brendan to do anything. He jumped at the chance to go on tour with her. It’s a huge relief to Miranda that Brendan is able to travel with her because that way they don’t have to spend time apart and deal with all the issues that come from that. A lot of the issues in her last marriage stemmed from having to spend so much time apart. It creates unnecessary stress.”

Then I’m the only one that ended up moving because I had to!”

Thomas Rhett tells the Des Moines Register that he loves listening to ALL types of music. “I’m country at the root of who I am. But at the same time, man, I get down to Post Malone. It doesn’t matter what genre it is to me. If it’s good music, it’s good music. I really just try to make good music no matter what the elements sound like.”
