Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley's grocery store, The Store, has been providing free groceries to qualifying families in the Nashville area for four years. For the first time ever, they are offering free options for families to shop for holidays toys. The Toy Store officially launched over the weekend, providing a selection of kids gifts for the families who used the original grocery store. A variety of sponsors and donors contributed more than 1,000 toys and $20,000 to make it happen. An additional 1,000 toys came from the First Responders Children's Foundation. Brad took his fans on a tour of the Toy Store in a post on social media. "Kids basically come in. They pick out what they want. Our job is to make sure that they get the kind of Christmas that they maybe didn't think they were gonna have this year," he explains. "They've got the craziest, amazing toys that were donated by great companies, and it's magical. I just love what we're doing, and hopefully, it's just gonna grow from here."
Taylor Swift has donated $1 million to the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund, in response to the deadly tornadoes that happened over the weekend. Taylor still owns a home in Nashville and her office is located in the city. Proceeds from the fund will help with immediate disaster response, including direct financial assistance, food, temporary housing, debris clean-up and animal sheltering. The December 9th storms claimed the lives of six people and 83 people were hospitalized for tornado-related injuries.

Aaron Goodvin and his wife, Victoria, recently welcomed their baby girl. In a post on social media, the new dad shares that Eloise Hart was born "a little early" on Saturday, December 9th. She weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces and has a head full of hair. "Mama is doing great," Aaron writes in his post. "And was a complete rockstar. I am blown away everyday from how you handle all life situations. But seeing you handle all the demands of child birth I'm just so happy and proud to be your husband and Eloise's Dad. Raising her with you and arguing about who gets to hold her this time is the new joy of my life."

"And to you Eloise. Thank you for showing me the deepest love I've ever known," Aaron wrote to his daughter. "I very rarely can sit still and do anything, yet I feel like I can stare at you for hours and just be with you. I love you so much my heart could burst. You will always be my beautiful baby girl. Mama and Daddy love you and are already obsessed about doing this life with you."

Zach Bryan was playing a show in Australia on December 9th, when he noticed a young girl in the crowd with a sign. That little girl is 4-year-old Laylah Tilley, and she is currently receiving treatment for Leukemia. Her sign read:

4 years old: check

Middle of chemo: check

Go to Zach Bryan: check

Meet Zach Bryan:

Of course the last one wasn't checked. Once he saw the sign, he decided to make her dream come true. Zach had Laylah and her mom brought to the front of the stage. He jumped into the crowd to autograph her sign and to give her a pat on the shoulder.

Carrie Underwood has just added six dates to Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency, extending her stay until October 2024. The new shows will mark the third year of her residency, which takes place at Resorts World Theatre. Carrie is just wrapping up her December dates. Earlier this month, with a night off from her own show, Carrie went to see Miranda Lambert's Velvet Rodeo residency.

Kane Brown has become one of only eight country artists to earn RIAA Diamond single certification for his 2017 song "Heaven." Other country artists who earned Diamond status for selling more than 10,000,000 units surprised Kane with video messages to celebrate the accomplishment. 

"I heard that 'Heaven' has gone Diamond, said Luke Combs, whose song "Beautiful Crazy" is a diamond-certified single. "Not many people have done that. I just wanna say welcome to the club, man. It's super cool. Keep killing it, man. You've always been awesome."

Tyler Hubbard, whose Diamond song was "Cruise," added his congratulations. Lady A's Hillary Scott and Darius Rucker also sent video messages. Lady A's Diamond single is "Need You Now" and Darius' is "Wagon Wheel." The other country songs that hit this milestone are Chris Stapleton's "Tennessee Whiskey," Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus' "Old Town Road" and Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road."
