Blake Shelton Knew Adam Levine Was Ready to Leave “The Voice”

Blake Shelton Knew Adam Levine Was Ready to Leave “The Voice”

Times are changing!

Blake Shelton tells Entertainment Tonight that he knew Adam Levine was ready to leave The Voice. “I think we all knew, on the inside of the show, that he was ready to make a move. For a guy like Adam, who is just-he’s the most ADD person I think I’ve met-for him to have even done it as long as he did without wanting to move on to the next thing, is amazing. But I know he’s happy with his decision. Doesn’t mean I am, or any of us [are happy], but at least they were able to soften the blow a little bit and bring Gwen back.”

We’re sure the next season will be just fine. 🙂

Luke Combs Secret to Success?  His Parents.

Luke Combs Secret to Success? His Parents.

It all starts from home!

Luke Combs tells Rolling Stone magazine that his parents are a big part of his success. ”My parents have always been really great at living within their means and not buying anything that they couldn’t afford. I didn’t understand how important that was until I started working. My parents just always told me, ‘If you want something and you can’t afford it, just don’t get it.’ They’ve made a lot of sacrifices for me. I was an only child, so I always thought if I screwed up, there wasn’t another kid to be good, so I didn’t really have a choice in that regard. I’ve gotten to help them out with some bills they had and my parents and myself didn’t get to travel a lot growing up. I got to take them to a lot of places that they’ve never been and let them experience a lot of things that they’ve never gotten to experience, so that’s definitely been the coolest thing.”

Maren Morris Poses Topless for Playboy

Maren Morris Poses Topless for Playboy

There goes the neighborhood!

Maren Morris tells Playboy   magazine that posing topless for their latest issue was fun. ”Doing Playboy has been a really fun challenge. I’m trying to do more things that scare me. Every year I’m trying to peel back my layers emotionally—and I guess physically.”

Maren Morris says her husband, Ryan Hurd, loves her Playboy photoshoot. “Even with Playboy, he was like, ‘That’s really hot.’ It’s awesome to be with somebody who is an equal and isn’t trying to make you feel like a skank because you’re proud of your body – someone who’s not watering down your ideologies for patriarchal and bull%#*! standards that women in country music have been locked into for the past several decades.”

Dan + Shay Almost Had the Worst Name in Country Music Business

Dan + Shay Almost Had the Worst Name in Country Music Business

Oh, this is just horrible.

Dan+Shay tell the website Building Our Own Nashville that their lawyer tried to pick their name for them. “Our lawyer, he is an older gentlemen and not super in touch with all things current or hip and he was like ‘I’ve got a name’ . He went on his iPad and it took him like ten minutes to type it in and he thought he had an epiphany, that this was his moment, that he had our name. So he spins the iPad around and he proposed the name ‘School’s Out’ for us, hahaha! If anyone thinks that Dan + Shay is a terrible name we could have been School’s Out!”

Yikes!  Glad they worked it out.

PS-  104.5 WFMB will be presenting Dan + Shay at the 2019 Illinois State Fair coming up August 11th!  Details here.

“The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” is Failing

“The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” is Failing

Bad news bears!  Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk-show is in disaster-mode because executives are fighting and ratings are rapidly falling. Some are blaming the downfall on the interview he did with Donald Trump in 2016. New producer, and Today Show veteran, Jim Bell was brought in to pump up ratings. He allegedly is upset with the show’s executive producer, SNL creator Lorne Michaels. Bell thinks Michaels is stuck in the past and that Fallon needs to reinvent himself to win.

This sounds like an absolute mess!  What do you think?  Can Fallon recover from his ratings woes?

Travis Tritt’s Tour Bus Involved in Fatal Accident

Travis Tritt’s Tour Bus Involved in Fatal Accident

So scary!

Travis Tritt’s tour bus was involved in a fatal accident early Saturday morning. He was leaving a performance in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina when another vehicle sideswiped the bus The driver of that vehicle was at fault for driving the wrong way. Two people died.

Travis’ Tweets:

”We were sideswiped in a fatal accident with a driver going the wrong way on Veteran’s Highway as we were leaving Myrtle Beach tonight. The Jeep driver hit a pickup truck head on right in front of us. Thank God we are all okay. I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m literally shaken by what I witnessed. God bless those who died and their families. Two human beings died tonight for no reason other than stupidity. I’m saddened beyond belief!”

“We were just involved in a fatal accident with a driver going the wrong way on Veteran’s Highway as we were leaving Myrtle Beach,” Tritt said early Saturday. “Thank God we are all okay. I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m really shaken up by what I witnessed. God bless those who died … We sustained minor damage as we tried to avoid the crash site in front of us. Bus damage can be fixed, but lives cannot be replaced. I’m so incredibly sad for those who lost their lives tonight.”

“I’m told that two people were killed in tonight’s accident as the the result of someone who was obviously driving drunk or impaired. Just a sober reminder to everyone to never drive if you’ve been drinking or impaired in any way. Uber or Lyft is just a phone call away.”

We’re sad there was a loss of life, but grateful that Travis is ok.  Don’t drink and drive!
