Miranda Lambert is fierce, but she is also just a softy soft. And I love her for it. She had a show in Corpus Christi and noticed one of the fans in the audience was fighting cancer. Miranda bent down and grabbed the 7 year old girl’s hand to serenade her. When she was done, Miranda was noticeably in tears. Witness the warm and fuzzy moment below…

Miranda’s hubby Blake was also doing some good and some serenading. Shelton, along with JCPenney, presented a $10,000 gift card to the USO to support families in need. Then he pulled 3 members of the US Navy up on stage and sang his hit “Home”. Shelton is a JCPenney Cares Ambassador and in two years, their partnership has raised nearly $5 million dollars for the USO. Neat-o gang!

Christmas is comin’ ya’ll! And good news! Darius Rucker will release his first Christmas album, Home For The Holidays. You’ll hear two Rucker originals, “Candy Cane Christmas” and “What God Wants For Christmas.” And I’m so glad he’s including one of my faves, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”. Sheryl Crow will be the other part of the duo for that tune. Look for the album October 27th!

If you needed anymore proof that Raelynn, Team Blake from Season 2 of The Voice, was adorable look no further. For no specific reason at all, she was caught wandering around Nashville this weekend in what? A unicorn onesie. Check out the video below and stay tuned for a response video where I, Joanna, wander around downtown Franklin, Greenwood, Columbus, who knows! …in my Batman onesie. It won’t be as adorable as Realynn, but any excuse to wear my Batman onesie, I’m doing it! ;)

The hot new country duo known as Maddie & Tae that are pretty ladies behind that ultra fun anti-bro hit ‘Girl In A Country Song’, took their act to New York and performed on David Letterman! Their debut EP is out November 14th!

Of course you already have Sam Hunt’s EP, “X2C”. The debut of his full album, “Montevallo” is coming Oct. 27th. The album is named for the small town in Alabama where Hunt lived while attending the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Now, Sam Hunt. I love you. And I love your song, Leave the Night On. But I have a few notes: please name your album something that I DON’T have to look up the phonetic spelling for. Also, you should probably scold your album cover photographer for the lighting that makes you resemble a certain historical dictator… Either way, I’m excited for the album to come out!

The nominations for this year’s CMA Awards are out and now we’re all just counting down until Nov. 5th. Jason Aldean’s dad is probably still steaming. He was very vocal with his anger at his son’s recent CMA Awards snub. Jason has finally expressed his own disappointment to Rolling Stone Country. He says ”It is what it is,”  ”You can complain about it, or you just go and keep doing things the way you always did.” Silver lining? His new album is out October 7th, so there’s always next awards season…

You may know him as Loki from the Marvel movie universe, but soon you’ll see him as Hank Williams in a biopic to be released late 2015 called I Saw The Light. Over the weekend, Tom Hiddleston took to the stage at Michigan’s Wheatland Music Festival for a performance of Hank’s “Move It On Over.” This was a nice little preview of what we’ll see from the movie that begins filming this October. Watch for yourself and let us know what you think of Tom’s performance! #swoon

Florida Georgia Line was almost NOT Florida Georgia Line. And after hearing what they were almost called, I kind of wish it was so. The states of Florida and Georgia are known for their oranges and peaches, respectively, so guess what they almost named themselves?  ….Orange Peach. Brian Kelley says “[They] wanted to represent where [they] came from,” So by that logic, if Robb and I went on the road as a musical duo, we should probably go under the name Sugar Creme Pie Tenderloin. Right?

HA

Carrie Underwood is already wearing the baby bump well! She was sporting a floral jumpsuit at Ravinia music festival last night and even talked about her little bundle of joy during a meet and greet after the show. Sighhhh. I want to be Carrie Underwood when I grow up if for no other reason than I think she is going to be super graceful during her pregnancy….or as graceful as it possibly can be…

And if you were at her show here in Indy a few weeks ago, maybe you got to hear this live! Danielle Bradbery released a video cover of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” and it is quite pleasant. Danielle won season four of NBC’s The Voice in 2013, becoming the youngest contestant to come in first place. Enjoy.
