Carrie Underwood is beautiful…
Miranda Lambert’s album is back on top…

Carrie Underwood has been named to People’s World's Most Beautiful list. Honorees are being unveiled one at a time until the final reveal on April 19th, when the magazine hits the newsstands with the complete list. 
One of the things keeping Carrie beautiful these days is her two-year-old son, Isaiah. She wants her son to have a bright future, saying, “I want him to say, ‘I had good parents, I had a good childhood.’ And I just want him to do good things in the world.”

Miranda Lambert‘s huge showing at last week’s ACM Awards is paying off in a big this week. Her The Weight of These Wings returns to No. 1 on Billboard‘s country albums chart, 20 weeks after it first entered.
At the same time, “Tin Man,” the song she performed so poignantly on the ACMs, gets the week’s highest airplay debut, coming in at No. 53.

Jeff Cook from Alabama has Parkinson’s…
Cam loves her curly hair…

Jeff Cook of Alabama has announced he has Parkinson's and will no longer tour with the group.
He's had the disease for four years, but he and his bandmates Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry have kept his condition quiet. 

He will join the band for a few scheduled shows, and officially leave at the end of the month. He also says he'll show up on stage every once in a while when he's feeling up to it. Randy says there will always be a mic on stage for Jeff whenever he and Teddy perform.


Cam is now an ambassador for the John Frieda Hair Care Products campaign Your Hair Talks, Make a Statement. 
Cam used to straighten her hair when she was younger but realized it was more important to be herself. She says, "There are so many women and girls that will see this and get psyched about their curly hair. Be yourself, be unapologetic, the world needs you to be you."
The campaign will include social media and video content, as well as events all over the country.

FGL leads the Billboard Music Award nominations…
Brothers Osborne are working on their second album…

Florida Georgia Line leads the country nominations for the Billboard Music Awards with five nods, including Top Country Artist, Top Country Album, two nominations in the Top Country Song category and one for Top Country Collaboration. Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney are contenders in three categories each and Chris Stapleton, Jason Aldean and Blake Shelton have two nominations.
The awards will be given out on May 21st on ABC.

Brothers Osborne are working on their second full-length album, and they are doing it in the sunshine of the Gulf Coast. They say they have been writing like crazy the past few months and are eager to get back in the studio. I am sure their CMA and 2 ACMs will help motivate them.

Hillary Scott’s new clothing line is coming soon…
RaeLynn’s new album debuted at #1…

Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum will bring her new clothing line to HSN on April 20th.
The LaBellum line was a group effort with some professional designers, but Hillary was insistent that the clothes reflect her style. She tells People, "If myself or a woman in my life wouldn’t wear it, then it’s a ‘No.’"
Another thing she made sure of was that women, no matter what size, can wear the clothing.


RaeLynn’s new album, Wildhorse topped the Billboard Country Albums chart in its first week out. The release debuted in the Top 10 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 chart.

The achievement makes RaeLynn the highest-charting and bestselling female country album release since Maren Morris with Hero, released in June of 2016. Wildhorse’s first single, “Love Triangle,” is also seeing success, as it’s sitting in the Top 30 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

Lauren Alaina scored her first #1…
William Michael Morgan and Jennifer Wayne have called off their engagement…

After years of hard work and 5 years after being the runner-up on American Idol, Lauren Alaina has her very first #1 hit! “Road Less Traveled” sits at the top spot on this week’s Mediabase Country Singles Chart. Lauren took to all of her social media platforms to thank everyone for this honor and saying that for the rest of her life she will have this #1.

William Michael Morgan and Jennifer Wayne from Runaway June have ended their engagement after less than four months.

The couple announced their engagement on social media in December, and since then have gushed about each other. But Jennifer turned to social media again on Friday to share with her fans that the couple have called off their wedding- saying they came to a mutual agreement that was best for the both of them. Then over the weekend she kinda threw some shade at William Michael by posting a pic of her bare left hand and writing the lyrics of Runaway June’s hit Lipstick- ‘If you’re gonna love somebody, yeah you better love somebody who ruins your lipstick, not your mascara.
