Dierks Bentley is gold and platinum…

Blake Shelton is done with making albums-maybe…

Dierks Bentley’s Black album singles have all been certified gold or platinum.
The album’s first two hits, “Somewhere on a Beach” and “Different for Girls” featuring Elle King, not only hit No. 1, but are also officially certified platinum. The title track of the album has achieved gold status. “Black” is currently in the top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

Blake Shelton says his next record will probably be his final. Maybe. Because he said that about his last album too.
He told Entertainment Tonight with a smirk on his face, “I mean, that last album I made was gonna be my last — this next album I’m makin’s probably gonna be my last album. So I really gotta decide what I wanna do.”
He also claims he’s finished as a coach on The Voice… and entertainment in general saying, “I don’t do entertainment anymore, kids.”

We shall see if Blake being honest because his latest album “If I’m Honest” has produced 2 #1s, he has spend 12 consecutive seasons as a coach on The Voice and that has produced one girlfriend named Gwen Stefani.

Sara Evans is set to release a new album…
Miranda Lambert is left alone in Nashville…

Sara Evans has announced she will release a new album Words on July 21st. This will be the first album via her self-owned Born to Fly Records and her 8th studio album total.
Words features 14 female songwriters, including Ashley Monroe, Hillary Scott, Sara herself and many more.

There's kinda an unspoken rule if you live in Nashville: if you see country stars out doing normal things, don't bother them. 
It's not unusual to see Miranda Lambert in Walmart or some of Nashville's best-known watering holes getting a bite to eat or a drink with friends. And for the most part, people leave her alone. She says, “Nashville is awesome. Nobody cares. Everybody who's anybody who's my hero lives here. When I see them out I don't bug them."
Miranda moved to Nashville full-time after her split with Blake Shelton in 2015.

Lady A are Dirty Dancing…
Billy Ray Cyrus is changing his name…

Lady Antebellum have contributed a song to the soundtrack of the Dirty Dancing reboot. 
They perform "Hey Baby," which was the song that played during the memorable scene in which Johnny Castle taught Baby how to dance.
The soundtrack drops on May 19th and the movie remake airs May 24th on ABC.

Billy Ray Cyrus has put out an updated version of "Achy Breaky Heart" to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the song's release. 
But the big news is, he's dropping his first name and will go simply by Cyrus. He says, "After August 25th, I will be the artist formerly known as Billy Ray. I'm just going by my last name, Cyrus... I'm going to the hospital where I was born in Kentucky, and legally changing my name."
Before signing his record deal in the '90s, he always performed under his last name.
