It’s easy to say Luke Bryan and his wife definitely have a good time and make things fun for the family.
Caroline started 12 days of pranks, and she herself painted with clear nail polish, a bar of Irish Spring soap. I had to Google exactly what this did - do you leave it still wet with the paint and put it in the shower or do you let it dry and then put it in shower so the soap doesn’t work? Legit questions I had - but here’s what Google said: “This is one of the simplest yet most frustrating pranks I've ever done. ... Cover the entire bar of soap in nail polish and let it dry so it is unlatherable.”
Well, Luke then also shocked Caroline when he shaved his face into mustache:
Luke Bryan’s song “What Makes You Country” sheds light on what could possibly make a person country. Is it where they grew up? Where they live now? Luke Bryan’s song puts his take on it!:
Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren may have one of the sweetest relationships - most people know they go all the way back to grade school.
But, for Christmas - Thomas is hoping he can instill some values in his family that doesn’t have only to do with gifts.
Thomas says, “I really, from a young age, would like to ingrain what Christmas is all about.”
He says he knows family’s that don’t do gifts anymore and only serve on Christmas Day....but also he doesn’t want to take away from the magic of Santa Claus and giving gifts as well.
From the official Country Thunder press release:

Last month Country Thunder Florida 2019 announced a second wave of main stage artists (including High Valley, Mitchell Tenpenny, Jimmie Allen, etc.) with a promise of more to come. Today they delivered on that promise with six more acts which will appear alongside a hit list of previously announced superstars, red-hot up-and-comers and veteran artists who have stood the test of time.
“The lineup for our inaugural year in Florida has come together in a big way,” says Country Thunder Music Festivals CEO Troy Vollhoffer. “In terms of timing and balance of tremendous headliners, outstanding heritage artists and exciting new acts, we couldn’t be more excited about coming to Kissimmee in March!”
LANCO is riding high on the heels of its No. 1 smash, Greatest Love Story, while Granger Smith has enjoyed two consecutive top-5 albums with Remington and The Good Guys Win. Brace yourself for an appearance from his alter ego, Dibbles Jr.!
Speaking of chart success, Chris Lane also seems poised to be “the next one” on the strength of a pair of top-10s in Girl Problems and 2018’s Laps Around The Sun. The outstanding harmonies of Maddie & Tae will bring fans at Osceola Heritage Park to their feet, while the veteran showmanship, incredible musicianship and endless hits from Tracy Lawrence and Restless Heart will leave them wanting more!
In addition to three days of the biggest and best acts that country music has to offer, the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo will also be taking place during the festival over at the Silver Spurs Arena.

Brittany Aldean got “urked” just enough apparently with this sensational news headline to take to her Instagram and call them out.
OK! Magazine is not a reputable publication - like National Enquirer is not a reputable publication either - they call them “sensational” media outlets for a reason - you shouldn’t believe everything you read - these are not clinical journals - ok you get my point.
When OK! Magazine printed “Carrie Underwood reportedly has no interested in being friends with Jason Aldean’s wife.”
The magazine went on to say “Brittany Kerr keeps reaching out but is getting nowhere with the country star.”
See Brittany’s post here:
If you’re all about the Christmas spirit like me, tonight is your night for some of country music’s biggest stars artist’s performing your Christmas favorites!

Backstreet Boys member Brian Littrell has a 16-year-old son, Baylee - and he’s showing off some country roots! It looks like he also worked with a producer who’s worked closely with the guys of Florida Georgia Line - Corey Crowder - also shout out to country up and comer Seth Ennis who also co-wrote the song:
Luke Combs and his now fiance’ Nicole Hocking apparently got engaged before being in Hawaii, according to Luke’s post that says, “She said yes awhile ago but this is a much better place to takes pictures than the kitchen.”
Kane Brown is opening up about his battles with depression, and he’s defending WHAT that exactly looks like to trolls on the internet who think they have something to say about it.
Kane posted the photo below with wife, stating, “The one person that takes my depression away, I love you.”
An Instagram user commented on Kane’s photo saying something along the lines of ‘yeah must be tough with all the money you have....’
Well, anyone who knows how real depression and anxiety is knows that money has nothing to do with it.
Kane posted this to everyone to may be also struggling:
Jake Owen is expecting! Well, his girlfriend of just about two years, Erica Hartlein is and they surprised his parents with the news on an ABC special, “Coming Home” on ABC.

Well, well, well. This will be kid #4 for Jason Aldean - and it might be the last “if he has anything to do with it.”
“I think this is officially the end of my baby-making days,” said Aldean, who has three children already: daughters Kendyl, 11, and Keeley, 15, from a previous marriage, and 11-month-old son Memphis with Brittany. “If I’ve got anything to do with it, it is.”
Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany are expecting baby number two together (this will be his fourth child though) and this will be his third daughter. They share son Memphis as well.
Aldean explained, “Roman was one of the names [wife Brittany Aldean] liked for Memphis and I wasn’t into it. And so she had the name Navy for this go around and I thought that was cool.”
Jason went on to say “My name was so common growing up . . . There was always five Jasons in my class which I thought was so annoying … so I just wanted them to have names that weren’t like super weird but they were like just different enough.”
Carrie Underwood has had a busy week! After preparing and hosting the CMA Awards - she was then inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame last night.
Her husband Mike Fisher posted below:
The CMA Awards may be this Wednesday, but Thomas Rhett is going above and beyond this week to make sure he can also incorporate giving back to the troops - and YOU’RE invited - it’s open to volunteers!
Crown Royal and Thomas Rhett are taking over downtown Nashville Tuesday, November 13 at the Bridgestone Arena.

Adult volunteers 21+ are encouraged to stop by to fill iconic Crown Royal purple bags with uplifting notes, food and personal care items!

Kane Brown joined us on the Obie & Ashley show today on the day of his album release and of course we had a lot to talk about! For one we had to congratulate him on his recent Nashville wedding, and I had to tell him how stunning his wife Kate looked!
Another interesting thing we never knew about Kane though is that he tried going into the military at one point but couldn’t get in because of one thing: his tattoos.
You can hear the full interview on today’s episode of Obie & Ashley on the iTunes podcast here. (Check back after 11AM for full audio).
Kane Brown recently spoke publicly, like he has in the past, about his family history and the struggles they faced as he grew up - even at times saving for just a 69 cent McDonald hamburger.
Kane admits his mom is going through another rough patch:
"My family goes through depression. I did buy her a car for her birthday a year ago, or two years ago. But something else I did, she's been living in my Pop, which is her dad's basement. She just moved into the basement, and she's been really depressed. So I called her, and I was like, 'Mom, I want to take care of you, so go pick out an apartment, whichever apartment you want.' So she got an apartment."

Thomas Rhett has been named “Sexiest Country Star” by People Magazine for their 2018 issue of the sexiest people alive, basically.
Idris Elba was the man who took the entire category as “Sexiest Man Alive,” but T-Rhett’s taking home the country win.
And of course we can’t forget, country’s own Blake Shelton did win the main event last year as People’s Sexiest Man Alive....
The Aldean’s celebrated their baby girl on the way today with a baby shower in Nashville - and, it was star-studded itself!
Jason’s wife Brittany is due this February, and the two revealed the baby girl’s name will be Navy Rome Williams. Williams is Aldean’s legal last name (Aldean is basically a stage name).
The two already have son Memphis - and he has two daughters from his previous marriage.
If you’ve been wanting to see George Strait, you better make time for a roadtrip to Georgia - there’s no telling how many more shows George is going to do!
He’s headed to Atlanta in 2019 to Mercedes-Benz Stadium on March 30. Strait will have opening acts; reigning CMA and ACM male vocalist of the year, Chris Stapleton, Chris Janson (best new artist nominee at the 2018 CMA Awards) singer/songwriter Ashley McBryde.
Tickets, which start at $49, will go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 16 via Ticketmaster here.
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is considered to be a pretty elite event when it comes to current supermodels, and the who’s who in the entertainment industry is usually in attendance.
Well this year - they’re all going to get a taste of country when Kelsea Ballerini takes the stage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show December 2nd on ABC.
Get ready! Now that we’re in November, we’re all gearing up for the holiday season. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in my household has always been a staple - I’ve always looked forward to waking up and watching it.
As far as country artist’s this year participating in the parade, we’ve got Kane Brown, Carly Pearce, Sugarland, Martina McBride, and I believe a few more may be announced.
Luke Bryan’s mom LeClaire had a condo in Mexico Beach - located in Florida’s panhandle, just one of the areas that was basically completely devastated after Hurricane Michael.
While LeClaire shared with Inside Edition her return to the condo after the hurricane - she has now released a video via social media to thank those that have come to the relief of the panhandle:
