Tracy Lawrence next album is all about duets…
Keith Urban is platinum…

Tracy Lawrence is teaming up with some friends for a duets album. 
So far, Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Dustin Lynch, Easton Corbin, Chris Young and Kellie Pickler are on board. Tracy says, “We’re doing a duets album of nine of my old hits and one new song, and I’m doing it with some of my friends in the business... I let all my friends pick their favorite Tracy Lawrence song."
It'll be his first studio album in four years. 

Keith Urban's latest album, Ripcord, has been certified platinum -- making him only the second country artist who released an album in 2016 to sell more than a million albums- the other would be Garth Brooks’ Gunslinger. 
The new certification also puts Keith in the history books as the second country music artist to have had all of his solo albums -- nine in all -- go platinum.

Shania Twain is set to release to a new album…
Faith Hill’s talk show is a go…

Shania Twain will release her first album in 15 years in September. 
The album's first single, "Life's About to Get Good," is expected to hit radio in June. She says, “I was at home looking out at the ocean and I said to myself, ‘Here I am stuck in this past of negativity, but it’s so beautiful out. I’m not in the mood to write a "feeling-sorry-for-myself" song. You can’t have the good without the bad.' And that’s what the song ended up being about.”

Faith Hill's lifestyle talk show got the good to go for production. 
The show, which will be based out of Nashville, will focus on cooking, gardening, entertaining, home design, beauty and fashion.
Kellie Pickler and award-winning journalist Ben Aaron will join Faith on the show. Faith says, "Kellie is very much southern while Ben is everything New York – complete opposites but together their chemistry is magic and our viewers are going to love them."
The still-untitled show is set to debut on September 18th.

George Strait has added two dates to his Two Nights of Number-Ones show at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He played his first two shows earlier this month.

The new shows are booked for July 28th and 29th. 


Well ladies, Kane Brown is engaged!

Josh Turner has another #1 single…

Sam Hunt is working on new music, but not necessarily a new album…

Josh Turner is back in a big way- after his album Deep South debuted at #1 back in March, he is now celebrating another #1 single! "Hometown Girl" peaked at the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart over the weekend.

Fans are anxiously awaiting the follow-up to Sam Hunt's debut album, Montevallo which has been out for almost three years.
He’s been doing a lot of writing, but not all of it will get heard. 
He says “I put in a lot of time. And a lot of time I'll come out with a couple of songs. A lot of that writing was for me more than it was a record. But within that process, I found that a lot of times I'll find revelations or thoughts or lyrics or ideas that I can take and turn them into song."
Sam kicks off his 15 in a 30 tour on June 1st at Blossom!

Jake Owen has a girlfriend…
Brothers Osborne is getting family advice for their next album…

Jake Owen has a girlfriend, and apparently they’ve been together for awhile.
Her name is Erica Hartlein and she’s an interior designer. Jake said about her, “I admire the fact that she has let me be me and while I’m still trying to figure out how to be a better version of that person she likes.”

Brothers Osborne are hard at work on their sophomore album and one of their family members had some suggestions on the directions is should be going. Their Aunt Fay recently sent this sweet and funny text- it said, “This is Aunt Fay from new iPhone number. Heard you were writing for new album. Would love you to do something with a cha cha beat!”

No word on whether they are including a cha cha beat, but the brothers are hard at work on the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut Pawn Shop.
