Image Courtesy BBMA/ABC/Dick Clark ProductionsFlorida Georgia Line‘s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley never stand still during their energetic live shows, so it’s impressive they haven’t taken any major spills, or even fallen off the stage, like some of their fellow country stars.

Tyler says, “We’ve both left bleeding a couple times, really definitely sweatin’. We’ve had a couple falls. Nothing too major. No ambulance, no stretcher.”

While they’re cautious about safety onstage, FGL likes leaving room of spontaneity in their live shows.

“As much as we’re runnin’ around the stage, you never know what’s gonna happen,” Tyler …read more

Image Courtesy Jon Peets/Capitol NashvilleLately, a lot of guys in country music have been singing about the bonfires and whiskey drinks that go into flirting with a girl, but few of them have actually addressed the goal of all that flirting — sex. Eric Church is addressing that topic head-on with his new single, “Like a Wrecking Ball.”

He says, “It’s about not being home to see your wife or girl for a long time, and thinking about that, preparing for that, executing that. It has nothing to do with anything else.”

Eric maintains he’s always …read more

Image Courtesy Sam Worster/MCA NashvilleSam Hunt‘s latest single, “Take Your Time,” has been certified gold for sales and streams topping the 500,000 mark. Now he’s released a very gritty video to go along with the hit song.

While the song is sung from the perspective of a guy trying to spend some time with a girl at a party or a bar, the video finds Sam stepping in to help out a young mother in an abusive relationship. The stark visuals offer a very different take on the song’s lyrics.

“Take Your Time” is …read more

Image Courtesy Sony Music NashvilleMiranda Lambert realized a big dream come true Thursday night when she headlined the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, which is 80 miles from her hometown of Lindale, TX. When she still lived in Texas, Miranda passed that arena on her way to the airport in Dallas and often dreamed of bringing her own show to the venue.

To make the milestone even sweeter, Miranda’s husband, Blake Shelton, surprised the audience to sing a duet. Miranda posted a photograph to Instagram of the couple kissing onstage at the show. The caption …read more

Gary had a few albums from his parents’ record collection he was keeping at his Nashville boutique, The Label. He says, “I think I’ve got a Willie Nelson in there, Hello Walls, and …read more
