Kenny Chesney is pushing back the release of his new album, Some Town Somewhere, to October 28th. It was originally
scheduled to come out on Friday.
Kenny wants the album to be perfect -- and that means adding a woman's voice to "Setting the World on Fire." So he called his new friend, the pop star Pink.
Kenny says, “Pink's voice holds so many feelings all at the same time: joy, desire, a bit of toughness, a little hurt. She’s an
incredible singer and has this great tone that shines but has a little wear to it, but doesn’t sound beat up."
He says adding her to the song brought the track to a whole new level.
Miranda Lambert has closed her bed and breakfast in Oklahoma. A notice posted on The Ladysmith'swebsite says it is closed and
has new management. There is no indication when it will reopen.
She previously shuttered her Pink Pistol Boutique, which is in the same town. Blake Sheltonbought the property on which the
boutique was located and says he has plans for it. The Pink Pistol store Miranda owns in Lindale, Texas is in the process of expanding.
Blake filed for divorce from Miranda one year ago Wednesday.
