So, this is the weirdest thing I’ve probably seen all week.

Although health troubles have kept him out of the spotlight all year, Randy Travis made a surprise appearance at a Joe Nichols concert over the weekend. Travis watched the performance from the side of the stage Nichols performed “Promises” in his honor. This is only one of a handful of public appearances Travis has made since recovering from a 2013 stroke. In July, he attended a Dolly Parton concert in Oklahoma.

If you were wanting a Joni Mitchell biopic starring Taylor Swift for Christmas, sorry. Santa can’t make it happen. Mitchell pretty much told producers, no thanks. Drat! That would’ve been kind of cool….

Here’s a little segment I like to call “Did You Know…?”

Did you know…that Eastin Corbin recently helped present a check for $1 million to Future Farmers of America? He’s been traveling around all year visiting local FFA chapters and is finishing out the year with a nice little gift to all of America’s future farmers. Nice. (He’s also putting the finishing touches on a new album, so we also have that to look.

Did you know…Kacey Musgraves almost didn’t record her CMA Award-winning song “Follow Your Arrow”? She originally sat down and presented the song to her friend and fellow artist, Katy Perry! BUT Katy turned it down and told Kacey “it sounded like something she would sing”. We agree!

Did you know…that Sara Evan cuts her hair? Looks purty, Sara!

We knew this already….Blake Shelton is a sexy guy. Right guys?

He isn’t People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2014BUT he is a runner up and that’s just as nice! Shelton is also the only musician that made the list. I’m sure 2013′s Sexiest Man Alive, Adam Levine, will be hearing about that!

Here’s your warm and fuzzy video for the day!

I’m right there with you, kid.
