I can’t imagine anything that could make an artist feel better than this. FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE posted video of a guy in their audience singing “Holy” with every bit of his being. They captioned it, “You can’t mistake passion. We love this.”
THOMPSON SQUARE had a nice thing happen to them over the weekend. They did a show in Virginia and the next morning were eating breakfast at Cracker Barrel when someone secretly bought their meal. They found out when the check came back with a note that read, “Thanks for the awesome performance last night.”
KELSEA BALLERINI is promising that her new album will be finished before the Grammys, which are February 12th. Unfortunately, there’s no word when it’ll actually be out.
There are two very good-looking people in MICHAEL RAY‘s “Think A Little Less” video . . . and he’s one of them.
Is Thomas Rhett Headed to the Big Screen?
Do you think THOMAS RHETT could make the jump from country star to movie star? Provided, of course, that he can actually act. I think he could. He’s likeable, cute . . . and most importantly, he’s interested. He says, quote, “Acting would be great. I think that would be a really cool thing to dive into. I know it’s one of the hardest jobs on the planet but it would be a lot of fun to give it a shot.” He’d also like to take a shot at a high profile job on the small screen. Quote, “I think a dream for any artist would be to host a CMA, ACM or [any] awards show. “Maybe work with a host that you really mesh with and just become iconic, kind of like VINCE [GILL] and REBA [MCENTIRE]. Go back and watch those clips, they had such chemistry. So I think that would be a dream for me.”
Here’s Why Brantley Gilbert Takes His Time Between Album Releases…
BRANTLEY GILBERT‘s new album “The Devil Don’t Sleep”, came out on Friday, which is almost three years since he released “Just As I Am”. Apparently, everyone wants to know what took him so long because it keeps coming up. He says the answer is that his songs are reflections of real things that happen in his life, so, obviously, there’s no way to set a timeline around that. Quote, “I don’t make fast albums: I have to live my life, let it sink in and then write the songs. I don’t rush the music. I want it to be right. But then I also want to give the fans as much music as they deserve. “To me, the [albums] are a conversation . . . and these songs are catching people up, telling them about what’s happened since the last record.”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line! He is 30 today.
