Recognize anything in this new music video from The Band Perry?

Well, if you’re a Hunger Games fan, you’ll recognize Alexander Ludwig (Cato from the first movie). You may ALSO be familiar with the location of the bands part of the video. Yes, that is the Grand Ballroom in Union Station in downtown Indy! Kimberly Neil and Reid actually filmed their part of the video when they were in town a while back. Fun!

And congrats to The Band Perry on their GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance!

Have you checked out Darius Rucker’s Home For The Holidays album? More specifically, the duet with Sheryl Crow on “Baby It’s Cold Outside”….

I think the most fun fact about this version is that Mr. Rucker was inspired by the scene in Elf when Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel sing it. Cute.

Country singer Craig Wayne Boyd was crowned winner last night. (Other Team Blake winners include Jermaine Paul, Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradburry.) Boyd has already released his debut single, ‘My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face.’ And check out his SWEET jacket!

So, I’ve told you about Dustin Lynch’s crush on the one and only Reba McEntire. That will come in handy when I tell you that not only does Dustin want to go on a date with her, but he sent her a bouquet of red roses before her appearance at the ACC Awards the other night. YES! What a gentleman! Seriously, who else wants to see this date happen??

In other news, Tim McGraw is going to be taking some time off from the country music scene.

Don’t fret…too much. He’ll just be taking time off since his daughter Gracie will be heading to college soon and he wants to spend all the time with her while he can. Then he’ll be back. :)

It’s music video Monday! This is not quite the music video you may have expected…and I can’t decide if this will entertain or horrify you, but here it is:

We’re all ready for Miranda’s next single, “Little Red Wagon”. She released the artwork for it yesterday and it is in true Miranda fashion.

Who’s ready?!

If you were serving our country overseas, what would be the one thing you would want sent to you in a care package?

Craig Morgan has teamed up with MoonPie to ship over 35,000 MoonPies to USO centers around the country to thank military men and women for their service. The donation is the culmination of a six-month campaign on Morgan’s social media that enabled fans to donate a free MoonPie, produced by Chattanooga Bakery, to the armed forces.

“You would be amazed at what a simple taste from home means to someone who is fighting for our country,” Morgan says.

Yum!

Okay. it’s Thursday. That’s pretty much the weekend. So I’m going to keep today’s Nitty Gritty short and sweet.

First, he’s cute.

 

In a recent interview with Country Aircheck, Lynch admitted that his crush on Reba runs deep.

“I would love to have dinner with Reba McEntire,” he told the country newsletter. “She’s my lifelong crush. I think she’d have amazing advice and be hilarious at the same time. I’d order a very nice bottle of red [wine]. As far as food, I’d leave that up to her.”

Second, watch this. He’s doing it right.

——————————————————————————————————————–

Now watch this, she’s fun.
