Brad Paisley is taking selfies…
Kenny Chesney is hitting the beach…

Brad Paisley is calling his own fans out in a new hilarious video for the song “Selfie #theinternetisforever.” In it, he shows off his well-known sense of humor by revealing some not-so-flattering fan selfies. But, Brad also included some selfies of himself.

Brad asked for embarrassing selfies-gone-wrong for the video, and did his fans deliver. The resulting hilarious video is a tribute to ridiculous things we do for social media. Faces and body parts are blurred and the over all message is- remember, what ends up on the internet never goes away.
His new album, Love and War is available on April 21st and will include this song along with his No. 1 hit “Today.”


Kenny Chesney and the beach just go together. 
Although he has taken the year off from touring, he's booked a date at the Wharf Amphitheater in Orange Beach, Alabama on August 5th. It's the first time he's played the venue in three years. 
Kenny has a few other dates on the books. He headlines the Tortuga Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday.

Taylor Swift is back in Nashville…
Carrie Underwood got another CMA Award…

Taylor Swift has returned to Nashville.
Taylor was spotted recently driving around Nashville. She’s in the recording studio and “has been busy working on her upcoming album.” Some are even saying she may move away from her pop sounds and record country tunes again. Or she could just be recording in Nashville…
A friend confirmed she’s in Tennessee to “get away from the paparazzi.”

Carrie Underwood went home from the ACMs empty handed, but she picked an honor from the CMA. 
She's just received the International Artist Achievement Award, which recognizes a U.S.-based artist who raises awareness of country music outside our borders.

Reba’s new show has a name…
Luke Bryan made history…

Reba McEntire has revealed the name of her new TV series- the drama will be called Red Blooded. 
The pilot is finished, and producers are waiting for the green light from ABC.
In the show, Reba plays a small-town sheriff whose views are challenged when an FBI agent arrives to help her solve a crime. Reba says her character is full of flaws and demons with a lot of problems in her personal life and she is under stress in her life and her town is being disrupted.
If the show gets network approval, it will begin shooting in July.

Luke Bryan's most recent number-one, "Fast," has made history.
He's now the only artist in the 27-year history of the Billboard Country Airplay chart to have six #1s from one album. The other number-ones from Kill the Lights are "Kick the Dust Up,” “Strip It Down,” “Home Alone Tonight,” “Huntin’ Fishin’ and Lovin’ Everyday” and “Move.” 
Luke launches his Huntin', Fishin' and Lovin' Every Day tour on May 5th at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena and he will make a stop at Progressive Field on July 15th!

Luke Bryan is #1 yet again…
Brett Eldredge is ready for love…

Luke Bryan’s single, "Fast" has hit the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart. "Fast" follows in the footsteps of the first five singles on his Kill the Lights album, which also all went to number-one. This is Luke's 18th number-one single!

It's official. Brett Eldredge is ready for love, and he knows exactly what he wants, thanks to his music.

While writing his new album, Brett spent a lot of time figuring out what he wants in a partner. He said, "I’ve been writing about the search for love, the loss of love, falling out of love and falling in love — it’s been a very soul searching record... I’m very specific with what I want to find, and I think that’s where it’s true, because that’s where I’m at."
Let’s see he’s tall, handsome, funny and he can sing- I’m sure he will stay single for about 2 seconds!
