LOTS of familiar faces here, including newly hitched Jason Aldean! There’s actually so much power in that one room, that I got a tad terrified… There’s even a trending hashtag, #TIDALforALL. Yikes.

More announcements on this new service is coming from Jay-Z today. (And I have read that both Jason and Taylor Swift’s music will both be available on Tidal….hmmmm)

Um, why wasn’t I notified that there was a job position open for laying in a tub of wine??

Apparently I missed the memo… country music cruises are a thing?I literally just read “Country music cruises have become the hottest phenomenon in travel.” Phenomenon is right. I picture more of a beach when we’re talking aquatic venues for country music…? If this idea of country music interests you….then you should book a trip for yourself on Country Cruising. It’s set to sail Oct. 23–30 to the sunny and tropical Caribbean Sea.

Host Neal McCoy will be joined by Trace Adkins, Thompson Square, Joe Nichols, Parmalee, Craig Morgan, Lindsay Ell, Maggie Rose. I think it’ll be more entertaining just stuck on a ship with all those guys, heck with the actual music part!

We finally have a picture from Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr’s wedding from last weekend. They got hitched in Mexico and were surrounded by family and friends. The surfaced photo includes Jason, Brittany and his two daughters Keely and Kendyl. They all look pretty dapper together!

According to US Weekly, Kerr walked barefoot down in the aisle in her Pnina Tornai white gown with lace sleeves. She did her own version of the wedding march to the John Legend song “All of Me,” and it was so touching that it made Jason cry. CUTE!

We also have more photos from Christina Aguilera’s arc on the TV show Nashville! Her character’s name is Jade St. John and she is playing a pop artist (surprise) who wants to go country. And we now know that her character Jade has pink hair! Check out the exclusive photos below!

Aguilera’s first episode of Nashville airs April 15 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
