Google Glass

glass-300x225If you want to get on the upside of the curve, tomorrow is the day you can buy Google Glass glasses. It’s the first time you, me and every average person can buy a pair. Up until now they were only sold to Google “Explorers”. Feelings are mixed on them. Some call it the future of computing, others call it the downfall of personal computing and it takes even less effort to be connected and zone out. People wearing them have been banned from bars and restaurants, given tickets for distracted driving…and since you won’t have your phone in your hand when you run into something, people will just think you’re an idiot.

Trisha’s Crib

1396993355000-Trisha-Yearwood-01Trisha Yearwood’s Nashville area home is on the market. Asking price for the 6,500 square foot home is $2.2 million. She says since Garth owns property nearby, it just didn’t make sense to keep her place. Trisha says of selling her home, “It is a little bittersweet for me. I haven’t lived in it consistently (for a while) but when I’ve been in Nashville, which is a good bit, that’s where I always stay. It’s been a wonderful safe haven for me.” Last month, Yearwood announced that she and Brooks would be moving to Nashville to spend more time in the city.  Interested?  Read the full listing HERE.

vetteThe last ‘Vette is out. Workers have recovered the eighth and final Corvette from the sinkhole that swallowed them at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY in February. The 2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 was found upside-down about 40 feet underground and they look nothing like Corvettes anymore, especially this one. they say it’s the one in the worst condition.  You can see all of them, as the museum will have them on display through August. They’ll then send them to a General Motors plant in Michigan to be repaired.

Craig Morgan, Good Dude

300x300Craig Morgan is just one of the best guys in country music.  He’s preparing to make his eleventh overseas tour to entertain U.S. troops serving abroad. Craig will travel with Armed Forces Entertainment and Stars For Stripes to perform a series of acoustic shows in Southwest Asia this spring. Morgan spent more than 10 years of active duty in the Army and an additional nine years in the Army Reserves, so he knows how much these concerts can mean for the troops serving abroad. Craig says, “As a former soldier myself, it is so important to me to have another opportunity to support our troops and do whatever I can to help keep morale high.  I always jump at the chance to get over there and do my part.” In addition to performing for service members overseas, Morgan has also shown his support for the troops and their families through the Folds of Honor and Jack Daniel’s Toast To The Troops charities. Morgan will also appear on “ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute To The Troops,” which airs on May 20 at 9 PM ET on CBS.

Hunter Has Been There

hunter-hayes-picHunter Hayes says his current single “Invisible” is a song about being misunderstood and not fitting in, which is something that even Hunter had to face at one point in his life. Hayes tells People Country, “This is about the fact that when I was in middle school and high school, I had the most wonderful, supportive parents in the world, and I was making music every weekend, but even with all that, those were some of the most incredibly dark days.” Hunter says that even though he was bullied and felt out of place during that time, he found a way to weather the storm and break through the dark place where he was at. And overcoming those obstacles was a theme Hunter made sure to include in his song “Invisible.” Hayes shares, “The point of the song was about changing the story — saying, ‘Here’s the good news, this chapter will change, and you’ll never see it the same way again. All this pain is gonna be invisible.’”
