Luke Bryan's eighth annual Farm Touris getting an album to go along with it. Farm Tour…Here's to the Farmer, featuring all new music, will be released on September 23rd -- before the tour, which runs from October 5th through the 15th.
A portion of the proceeds from tickets on each of the eight tour stops goes to providing scholarships to local
students of farm families studying agriculture.
Even though Lady Antebellumis still very much together -they have 16 dates on their summer tour — the group’s Hillary Scott is on the verge of releasing her solo album.
Earlier this week she revealed she’d had a miscarriage last fall and she wrote her first single “Thy Will” after experiencing
everything that comes during such an emotional time.
The Love Remains album that she made with her family will be out on July 29. In addition to “Thy Will,” there are 12
other faith-based songs, like the hymns she grew up singing in church, plus some new songs and other material made popular
by other artists.

Maren Morris was rejected by two different TV singing competitions.
She tells Rolling Stone, "It's full circle, because I was rejected from The Voice. I was rejected from American Idol -- and I'm happier for it now."
Despite the poor judgment the shows displayed, Maren is doing fine. Her just-released debut album, Hero, landed at the top of Billboard's Top Country Albums chart. She's also on her very first tour,
opening for Keith Urban.
