I’m not necessarily saying that you should vote for him, but what I AM saying is that this will be the best thing you watch today.

If you feel so inclined you CAN vote for Rice — or your favorite New Artist nominee — at the ACM Awards website.

All of my wildest dreams are coming true! Just days after Blake Shelton pulled double duty as host and performer onSaturday Night Live, it seems The Voice judge and country star is going to keep acting and is set to appear in an upcoming Adam Sander movie.

Shelton will play famed gambler and Arizona lawman Wyatt Earp in the ensemble Western spoof Ridiculous 6. The comedy is the first of four original movies Sandler is producing exclusively for Netflix. The cast reportedly also includes Sandler, Taylor Lautner, Luke Wilson, Nick Nolte, Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice. Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell and comedian Lavell Crawford are expected to join on as well. Oh BOY!

A duet album from Trisha and Garth? Okay! It seems the long-awaited duets album from Garth Brooks and his wife Trisha Yearwood might soon become a reality. The Oklahoma native recently hinted at a press conference that a record of duets is one of his goals for 2015. “We are trying to get it out this year,” Brooks reveals. “It’ll be a duets album, but it will not be like what you’ve seen before. She’s got a lot of strong ideas.” Brooks first mentioned the possibility of joining forces with his wife back in 2007, when he was still happily enjoying time off the road to raise his three daughters.

She’s probably 100% okay with hanging out on the couch since she is, as she’s put it, “insanely pregnant”. Not only will she be watching the GRAMMYs from her couch, but she’ll also be enjoying the Superbowl from the comfort of her home. And even though she’ll be deep in buffalo chicken dip, she’s still kicking it all off! Fans will be able to catch Carrie’s voice opening the big game when the New England Patriots take on the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday night on NBC-TV.

“I’ll be watching for sure,” she says. “I don’t know if I’ve ever not watched a Super Bowl, so it’s going to be cool. And I do kind of get to kick off the Super Bowl, because obviously NBC has it, and we did our ‘Waitin’ All Day for the Super Bowl.’”

You know I love it when stars gush over meeting other stars…Well, Lee Brice didn’t just meet Garth Brooks, but he got to sing with him at a show in Boston. And his reaction just warms my heart…

Garth welcomed Lee Brice to the stage during his Saturday show at the TD Garden arena in Boston to sing “More Than a Memory,” the hit that Lee penned with pals Kyle Jacobs and Billy Montana. The tweets from the fans were just as appreciative!
