Kacey Musgraves to release a new album early next year…
Walker Hayes loves Christmas with his family…


Kacey Musgraves will release her fourth album, Golden Hour, early next year. 
She says the album is a bit "trippy" with songs inspired by The Bee Gees, Neil Young and Sade. 
Marrying Ruston Kelly in October has brought out another side of Kacey and she recorded the album in the studio at Sheryl Crow's farm. 

Christmas at the house of Walker Hayes is simple. 
He has six kids and another one on the way, so lots of gifts could get expensive. So, they usually get one big gift that everyone can enjoy. 
But the best gift of all for the Hayes family is getting to spend time with the extended family. 
Walker says, "We love going and seeing the inlaws, my parents, just watching them with the kids. That's my favorite, getting my kids around my parents and my siblings and just kind of letting them all be together and standing back and watching."
Walker's new album, boom, is available now.

Lady A thinking about another Christmas album…
Luke Bryan has another #1 single… 

Lady Antebellum is expecting a special gift this holiday season, since Dave Haywood's wife is due to deliver their daughter in less than two weeks. Next year they are thinking of giving fans a gift in the form of a new Christmas album.
It's been five years since they released their first holiday album, On This Winter's Night, and Charles Kelley says they are ready to go for another round, but they are waiting for Dave and Hillary to spend time with their expanding families.

Not only did Luke Bryan release his sixth studio album, “What Makes You Country” on Friday, it was his 11th wedding anniversary with his wife Caroline and over the weekend his latest single “Light it Up” went to #1 on the Mediabase Country Airplay Chart. I am sure some people lit up his phone.
