Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, and Maren Morris were announced as performers at next month’s ACMs. More names will be coming the closer we get to the show.
KELLY CLARKSON is selling her Nashville area mansion for $8.75 million. What’s that get you? How about seven bedrooms, eight full baths, and three half baths. There’s a basement bar with horse saddle bar stools, and a theater . . . plus a saltwater pool, private dock, sand volleyball court, and two spas.
BLAKE SHELTON’s house is for sale too. Well, NOT the one he’s in now. His childhood home in Ada, Oklahoma is on the market for $250,000. His mom’s the owner and check out this upgrade. She put in a “rustic room” that looks like an Old Western town complete with an OUTHOUSE DOOR and shingled roof.
I guess this kind of thing happens when you write as many songs as TAYLOR SWIFT does. PHILLIP SWEET of Little Big Town revealed that she sent the band an email that included the demo of “Better Man”. She wrote, “I keep hearing your voices on it. If you want to cut it, great. If not, no big deal.”
Speaking of Florida Georgia Line: They added three stadium dates to their Smooth Tour, featuring Nelly and Chris Lane. They’ll be at Boston’s Fenway Park on July 7th . . . Target Field in Minneapolis on July 29th . . . and Chicago’s Wrigley Field on August 12th. Because they can, they posted an over-the-top video about it.
You’ve probably never noticed CARRIE UNDERWOOD’s freckles, and there’s a good reason for that. She had them removed a long time ago. She tells “People”, quote, “I had freckles on my face and they were in the exact same spot on both of my cheeks, so I got teased at school. I remember asking my mom if we could get rid of them. Well, I did get rid of them.” There’s also an interesting story behind that million-dollar smile. Quote, “I had bad teeth, too. I had to get braces more than once. I actually had them on the bottom for three months while doing red carpets, but no one knew, so I felt like I had a secret.” In a different interview, Carrie played a game of “29 Questions” and there were some great answers. Her first job was at a gas station . . . she sleeps better when she’s in Oklahoma . . . and she admitted to owning 250 pairs of heels. Check out these fitness facts: She can bench press almost 100 pounds, and her tip for getting those incredible legs is doing squats and lunges while holding weights. She was also asked if she had one message for young women around the world, and I love her answer. She said, quote, “Support other women. Tell somebody they’re beautiful.”
