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.

If you don’t have a subscription to HBO, it may be about time to get one…Carrie Underwood is joining forces with some big start to celebrate Veteran’s Day in 2014. On Nov. 11, Underwood will join HBO, Starbucks and an army (if you will) of well-known musicians and actors. It’s the Concert for Valor in Washington, D.C. to honor American soldiers. So if you’re in the area, or have a HBO and a DVR, check out this free concert. You’ll see the Zac Brown Band, in addition to Eminem, Rihanna, Foo Fighters’, Metallica and even Bruce Springsteen. If that wasn’t enough, Tom Hanks will serve as one of the show’s executive producers, and there will be appearances by Jamie Foxx, John Oliver, Steven Spielberg and Meryl Streep. #whew!

Rascal Flatts guitarist Joe Don Rooney and his wife, Tiffany Fallon, welcomed their third child to the world on Monday! Congrats to the family! As I read their kid’s names, I decided that I’m pretty impressed with their naming skills! The newest baby girl’s name is Devon Olivia (pretty), their 6-year-old son is Jagger Donovan (you don’t mess with a kid with that name) and their first daughter is Raquel Blue (probably a superhero of some kind).

Oh Jake Owen…you’re cute.

Whoa.
