Congrats to Kelsea Ballerini as she becomes the first female solo artist to have her first 3 singles from a debut
album to hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Charts in 9 years as “Peter Pan” entered the Top 10
this week. The last artist to do so was Taylor Swift in 2007.
Brett Eldredge has a new best friend in his life, and his name is Edgar. The singer posted some photos on Snapchat
of his new tiny brown puppy.
Brett dubbed the little chocolate lab as his “new best partner in crime,” showing him off as he took the pup to get
microchipped and to the pet store, plus getting a bath — a Snap story filled with so much adorableness it was
overwhelming. No word on whether Edgar will be hitting the road with Brett while he is touring with Keith Urban,
but he will be at Blossom tomorrow!

Kenny Chesney surprised fans by announcing the new title for his upcoming album. Instead of Some Town Somewhere,
it will now be called Cosmic Hallelujah.
Kenny said, “Now with the new music, and the energy that the new music is bringing, it feels like a cosmic hallelujah.
That's what came out, so that's going to be the title of the new album."
The album was originally scheduled to be released last week, but was pushed to October.
Jason Aldean will release his seventh studio album, They Don't Know, on September 9th.
The first single from the record, "Lights Come On," was written by Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley.
It sits at #1 on the Mediabase Country Singles chart this week. It's Jason's 17th number-one.

in the fall.
