In a recent interview Jennifer Nettles talked about what the her latest song “Unlove You” means to her as a writer,
a singer and even as a listener.
She said, “It offers a different kind of emotional stirring to perform it than it does to write it or to hear it actualized in
a recording than it does to perform it. Sometimes I also hear myself as a third person observer, like it’s not me, if I’m
listening to it in that wayand sometimes, especially with this song, I think, ‘Oh, how sad. Oh, that’s so sad.’”
Jennifer’s new album ‘Playing With Fire’ comes out on May 13th.

Last week we got the title. Now we're hearing a little more about Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani's duet on Blake's new

pulled the trigger anyway. Blake tells People, "I love this song! This song's important to us and the fact that we wrote it together
is so important to both of us."
If I'm Honest comes out May 20th.
Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott and her family will release a faith-based album, Love Remains, in the next few months.
The album is a collection of songs she's written, found or sung in church her whole life. The first single, "Thy Will Be Done,"
is about a personal struggle she went through. She admits that she never thought she'd be able to write a contemporary
Christian song, until she realized she had something to say.
Hillary won't elaborate on what inspired the song just yet, but says she will once fans have heard it and relate their own
struggles with it.
Hillary's mom Linda Davis, her dad Lang Scott and her younger sister Rylee are all part of the album.
