Chris Young isn't a fan of cooking on the road, but when he gets home he loves to make breakfast and burgers. "I'm a breakfast nut," he shares. "I love eggs and bacon. I do omelettes and different kind of stuff like that. But also, I love doing my own burgers at the house. Like, A-1 burgers, mushrooms, swiss, saute the mushrooms, do all that."
Billboard has released their list of the 40 biggest money makers in the music industry for 2020. Luke Combs was number 16 on the list with $9.2 million. George Strait is at number 26 with $6.9 million and at number 28 it's Blake Shelton with $6.7 million.
Luke Combs is covering the funeral costs for three country music fans who died at the Faster Horses Festival in mid-July. The men, who were in their early 20's, were found in their travel trailer on July 17th. Authorities believe they died from carbon monoxide poisoning from a generator found near the trailer. Luke was one of the headlining acts that performed at the festival.
Scotty McCreery announced this week that his fifth studio album will be out September 17th. It's called, "Same Truck". The plan was to make the announcement of a new album in August. However, pre-sale information was leaked about a week ago so the decision was made to let us know this week instead.
Yesterday Jason Aldean said he has a new song coming out Friday. It's titled, "If I Didn't Love You". He also mentioned it's a duet but he didn't say who is joining him on the tune. Jason invited us to take our best guess. Well, guess no more. Apparently, it's Carrie Underwood. How do we know? Carrie responded to his social media post by simply using an emoji: a woman raising her hand. Jason Aldean liked her post for more confirmation.
If you've ever tried to buy front row tickets to see Garth Brooks and you haven't been able to, well there's a reason why and he is finally sharing the reason behind it. Garth explains that after a lifetime of touring, he got tired of disinterested spectators who weren't really into the music and were looking around to see who was seeing them at the show. So he found a new way to fill those seats. The first two rows of every concert are reserved ahead of time, and his crew members distribute the tickets themselves. They head up to the seats that are the furthest away and give fans a surprise upgrade. Garth is not the only artist to do this. Metallica, U2, Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen have been known to do the same thing. Garth actually spoke with them before he started to do it.
In an interview with People, Luke Bryan says he plans to send "funny, sarcastic" wedding gifts to Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. Luke didn't even know the wedding was happening. "I found out with the rest of the world," he says. "But...I have started my mental wedding gift soiree. I'm going to get a big box, and there will be embarrassing items in there. They'll be funny, sarcastic items, so Blake and Gwen can expect my wedding gift with the Luke Bryan touch on it." He also said that he doesn't have any advice for the newlyweds. "The beauty of Gwen and Blake is they're at the perfect age to rekindle marriage, and they've both been in certainly public divorces," says Luke. "I don't need to give those two any advice. I mean, all the pictures from the wedding just say everything. They were made for each other, and it took them a few years to find one another, I'm just very happy that they did find each other."
