Carrie Underwood continues to do everything perfectly and will never do anything wrong ever. Of course I’m referring to her perfectly timed and wonderfully cute announcement that she and husband Mike Fisher are expecting their first baby! She tweeted a picture of her dogs, Ace and Penny, wearing “I’m going to be a big brother/sister” shirts. Cue the “awww” track…

Buzzfeed is NOT just for finding out which 90s boy band you are most like. I guess it’s also becoming THE place for country album special announcements? I don’t know. Jason Aldean revealed that he will release his sixth studio album on Buzzfeed over the weekend. Old Boots, New Dirt, will be out October 7 on Broken Bow Records. You’ll hear Taylor Swift, Eric Church, and Luke Bryan on the album and Aldean says you’ll also hear bit of R&B, Southern rock, pop, and classic Nashville.

 

Aaand time for a Public service announcement from Lee Brice: date nights are important. The singer says that he loves taking time off the road to spend with his wife and family. And hey, you never know, if you take his advice maybe it will inspire you to write a country hit….? Brice’s third studio album, ‘I Don’t Dance,’ is out Sept. 9th.

It’s been a long, interesting summer for Chris Young. After a cooking accident and surgery on his left hand in June he’s been avoiding knives and having a really hard time eating steak like a normal human being. He Told PEOPLE that “[He] can do almost everything now, but [he’s] 2 months away from being able to play guitar.”  Young is currently on Dierks Bentley‘s Riser Tour with Jon Pardi and Chase Rice.

 

Chelsea Handler hosted her final talk show on E! Tuesday night, and two familiar country-singing faces showed up to bid their farewell. As the show closed, a gaggle of celebs, including Trace Adkins and LeAnn Rimes, helped Handler sing a goodbye to ‘Chelsea Lately.’ Check out the song tribute below!

Fan-girling is NOT just for girls, you guys. And Brett Eldredge would agree. He says “[He’s] idolized [Keith Urban] for a long time and now gets to sing with him every night!” Of course he’s referring to being on the Raise ‘Em Up tour with Keith and Jarod Niemann. Imagine getting to sing with one of your favorite artists! I’m still waiting on my invite to sing with Miranda Lambert. It probably just got lost in the mail, right?

Justin Bieber took to Instagram yesterday, as he does, and the world exploded, as it does. The Biebs decided to cover Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire”….. Don’t worry, he’s not going to be releasing a country album anytime soon. But I will say that I’m actually pretty impressed by how low the 20 year old’s register could go. See for yourself below.

Hunter Hayes is all about the tats. He’s in the middle of his Tattoo Your Name Tour and has his new single, Tattoo…ya know…he’s all about ‘em. He says he may get a real one some day, but right now he’s sporting a full sleeve henna tattoo. I think this is a huge wasted opportunity! He needs to be completely shameless and just tattoo his tour dates on his face.

Also, you can go to his website and create your very own Hunter Hayes tattoo! Thank goodness!

Martina Mcbride doesn’t want you to miss out on seeing her face! She just added 40 shows to her Everlasting Tour for this fall. She’ll be at the Honeywell Center in Wabash September 5th.

The answer is yes. It is still acceptable to have a skating rink birthday party as an adult. Kacey Musgraves celebrated turning 26 in style with miss Katy Perry over the weekend. You can check out all the nostalgic pictures on Kacey’s Instagram. Thank you Kacey. Please excuse me while I go plan my 27th Birthday party…

Lee Brice doesn’t dance and doesn’t need record labels telling him what to do. Brice told an Ohio Newspaper that “[He’s] been able to make [his] last two albums, Love like Crazy and Hard 2 love, on [his] own, which proved you have to be yourself as an artist, and you can’t let the label tell you what to be or do.” I Don’t Dance is out Sept. 9th.

 

Taylor Swift debuted her new pop persona in style last night at the VMA’s. Not only did she show off on stage performing her new single, “Shake it off”, before that, she walked the red carpet without…uh…pants?  Awkward…but she kind of pulls it off! What do you think?
