Mr. Keith confirmed yesterday that he’ll be releasing his 18th album 35 MPH Town. No release date yet, but his newest single off the album “Drunk Americans” is set to come out today! My favorite is how he relates all of his singles, like they’re his family…

‘Drunk Americans’ is what would happen if ‘I Love This Bar’ and ‘American Ride’ had a child. ‘Beers Ago’ is their drunk uncle. – Toby Keith

After Somethin’ Bad was released in May, Miranda Lambert surprised Carrie Underwood with a shiny new motorcycle to celebrate. Why not?

Carrie’s hubby, Mike Fisher, bought her a smaller bike to learn on, but she says her pregnancy has forced her to put her riding lessons on hold. Womp Womp. So don’t expect to see Carrie ride out on the CMA Awards stage in a motorcycle to accept her awards for the nominated duet with Miranda. It’s not going to happen.

Remember that one time I talked about an auction where you could bid on Willie Nelson’s braids? Well, the infamous braids from 1983 have been sold. Sorry! How much did they sell for? $37,000. The auction included other items that belonged to the late Waylon Jennings, including a robe and boxing gloves from Muhammad Ali, Hank Williams’ Nudie cowboy boots and a handwritten letter from John Lennon to Jennings.
