I’m not much for pranks, but this one was so original I had to share it. It’s actually a revenge prank by JOE NICHOLS, who was opening for TOBY KEITH. We’re pretty sure it was the “Hooking Up and Hanging Out Tour.” Toby started the whole by having the crew deconstruct the stage WHILE Joe was in the middle of his set. They took away the instruments, the musicians, everything. By the time Joe finished he was alone on the bare stage feeling, well, bare. So, he got his revenge while Toby was performing. Here’s how Joe described it, quote, “I wrote ‘T’ on one butt cheek, and ‘B-Y’ on the other butt cheek and went on stage and mooned him. And mooned the rest of the crowd.”

BRAD PAISLEY kept the production values simple in the video for “Without A Fight”, which is his duet with DEMI LOVATO. And that’s a good thing.

KEITH URBAN paid tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting at his recent show in Tampa, Florida. He talked about them being people with “dreams and hopes” just like the rest of us . . . and then he performed U2’s song “One”.

KENNY CHESNEY will be performing at this year’s “Macy’s 4th of July Spectacular”, which will air on NBC. Other performers include Meghan Trainor, the Aussie band 5 Seconds of Summer, Broadway star Jennifer Holliday, and The United States Air Force Band.

MIRANDA LAMBERT’s MuttNation Foundation set up a booth at the CMA Music Festival . . . and found homes for 41 dogs.
