    How to Get Face to Face with Luke Bryan and Little Big Town, All for a Good Cause

    Luke Bryan’s Kill the Lights Tour may be heading into the home stretch in October, but the CMA Entertainer of the Year is squeezing in at least one more chance to do a good deed before the end of his run.

    Jon Pardi Works to Repair the Roof of a Texas Institution that Inspired His Hit Song

    Jon Pardi’s recent number one, “Head Over Boots,” was inspired by a trip he took with his dad to a Texas dance hall, and when it came time to shoot the music video, there was only one place that captured the spirit of the scene perfectly — Twin Sisters in Blanco, Texas. The Lone Star State staple still holds Saturday night dances on the same hardwood floors it’s had since it opened in 1879.

    Kelsea Ballerini Brings It Back Up for Her Final Single from "The First Time"

    Kelsea Ballerini is busy working on the follow-up to her debut album, which so far has yielded three number-ones. For the final single from The First Time, she’s circling back to a theme that’s similar to the one in her hits “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dibs.” “We’re gonna end up with ‘Yeah Boy,’” she tells ABC Radio. “It’s just one of those fun, flirty summertime songs that hopefully people just find at ease on the radio.” While Kelsea hints that she’s digging a little deeper on her sophomore effort, she picked “Yeah Boy” because it revisits the upbeat spirit […]

    Miranda Lambert is planning a major celebration for the grand opening of her new Pink Pistol store in her hometown of Lindale, Texas.
