Kane Brown did “One Thing Right” — by not revealing what Marshmello looks like without his helmet

Walt Disney Television/Lorenzo BevilaquaKane Brown not only has a hit on the country chart right now with “Homesick,” but you’ll also hear him on pop radio with “One Thing Right,” his track with producer/DJ Marshmello — famous for concealing his face with a giant helmet that looks like, well, a marshmallow.

Kane is no stranger to pop collaborations, and he admits it would have been “dumb” for him to turn down the chance to work with the huge star from electronic music.

Prior to working with Marshmello, Kane joined Khalid on a remix of Khalid’s song “Saturday Nights,” …read more

ABC RadioYou won’t be having Fun with Garth Brooks this fall as planned. Instead, he’s leaving you with his Legacy for the time being.

Garth had planned to release his new record, Fun, this fall, as his current hit, “Dive Bar,” makes its way up the chart. Instead, the record’s been pushed back to early next year, so it won’t compete with his upcoming Legacy vinyl set.

The seven LP/seven CD box comes out November 1 and includes the new Triple Live — recorded on tour — plus the classic albums No Fences, The Chase, In Pieces, and Fresh Horses.

ABC/Image Group LAThey don’t call him King George for nothin’.

This week, George Strait becomes the first artist in history to have placed one hundred songs on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart, as “The Weight of the Badge” debuts at #56.

That’s really only part of the story, though. That total only dates back to the beginning of the Country Airplay tally, which started in January of 1990. If you look at the more comprehensive Hot Country Songs ranking, Strait’s charted 124 tunes in all, dating back to 1981.

“The Weight of the Badge” is the …read more

Lady A’s proud to have graduated from the school of Reba, “one of [country’s] biggest icons”

Jason Kempin/Getty Images for CMT/ViacomPerforming in honor of CMT Artist of the Decade Reba McEntire Wednesday night wasn’t something Lady Antebellum took lightly, especially since Hillary Scott practically grew up on the road with the country legend.

Hillary’s mom, Linda Davis, sang backup for Reba and won a Grammy for their #1 duet, “Does He Love You.” So Lady A’s been privileged to have a front row seat to learn from the legend.

“She’s such a great entertainer. She’s so authentic,” Dave Haywood reflects. “She’s always been so true to herself, where she came from, how she was raised in the Midwest, …read more

Big MachineFlorida Georgia Line‘s most recent hit was the double entendre, “Talk You Out of It.” But now, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley are literally stripping it down — their songs, that is — for The Acoustic Sessions, which is out today.

“You know, the acoustic project is pretty cool to listen back and hear and kind of relive our songs in a different way,” Brian says. “And we …read more

Catherine Powell“10,000 Hours,” the new song from Justin Bieber and Dan + Shay, had its live performance debut in an unusual setting: Dan + Shay sang it at Justin Bieber’s recent wedding celebration. And as they tell Entertainment Tonight, they had no idea they were going to do it.

“We had never rehearsed it,” Dan Smyers tells ET. We obviously recorded it in the studio, but we never played it live in front of actual human beings. [But] Justin was like, ‘Sing ‘10,000 hours,’ we’re like, ‘OK, we’ll try.’ “
