Morgan Wallen’s VIDEO For “More Than My Hometown” Is Here!

Morgan Wallen ain’t slowing down for shit! We’re happy he’s not. His new music is as good as his first album…so far. He’s definitely showing he’s not going to be a one album country artist and done. A man who made the mullet famous again is a real man in our book!

Boots (Morgan’s dog/BFF) said you should listen to his new music TODAY!

Morgan Wallen Is A Dad Now Y’all!!

10E07212-00E3-4919-8A16-CE71A70AE7AF

Morgan Wallen shared some BIG news this week on his Instagram!!

“Little Wilder, I’m a changed man. Since you came into the world Friday, I see mine differently now. It’s not just me anymore, and I’m glad it’s not. This year has been the hardest of my life in so many ways, but that’s not what i will remember it by. You are. You are a gift and this tough year just made sense. I’ll be the Dad you deserve as well as the co-parent your mother deserves. Since you were born, I know that every decision I make will be with you in mind. I promise I’ll always protect you, and do my best to be an example of a good, godly man just like my daddy was for me. I knew this day was coming when I got to share this news with y’all. And I’m glad that day is here. I didn’t know what being a dad would feel like, honestly have been a little scared. But it’s the coolest damn feeling, and I’m ready for whatever God has planned for me and my little guy. He’s healthy and happy and while I’m typing this I’m getting in the truck to go hold him right now. Thank you for all the love and prayers. Thank you to my friends and family who have called and texted me letting me know how happy they are for me and that I have their support. I can’t wait to see him hook into his first big one. Indie Wilder”

Charlie Daniels Dead At 83 #2020SUCKS

909E5142-1980-46B2-8230-723B78C24DBF

Today’s country music news really sucks!

Charlie Daniels, a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame best known for “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” died Monday morning after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke. He was 83.

65CCA3EB-274F-43E4-BB32-457E1F60920F

Daniels’ death was confirmed by his publicist, Don Murry Grubbs. He is survived by his wife, Hazel, and son Charlie Daniels, Jr.

Charlie Daniels truly loved this country and everything it stood for. His work off stage and his music showed that. He’s definitely going to be missed.

 

Carly Pearce Filed for Divorce from Michael Ray

0C9CF0F5-2E54-4409-9842-BA4E7FDB494D

“This was a hard decision. It wasn’t something she wanted to have to do,” a source close to Pearce tells PEOPLE. “This hasn’t been a quarantine realization — it was a last resort.”

Ray, 32, and Pearce, 30, last appeared in public together on June 6, when they both performed without a live audience at the Grand Ole Opry. They were joined on the bill by Steve Wariner and Lee Brice (Pearce’s duet partner on their #1 song “I Hope You’re Happy Now”).

This news breaks my heart. I’m friends with both Michael and Carly. They are some of the most amazing people I’ve come to know.

Hope they get through this and truly find their happiness in life. You can read more here.
