Luke Combs posted on his Facebook and Instagram saying, “Yesterday was the best day of my life. I got to marry my best friend. I love you Nicole Hocking, here’s to forever.”
We couldn’t be happier for Luke and Nicole for tying the knot yesterday! Weddings aren’t easy to plan with everything going on.
“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”
After only eight months of being married, the “Every Little Thing” singer-songwriter filed for divorce from the “Her World or Mine” singer last Friday (6/19/20). Michael Ray and Cary Pearce’s reps confirmed to PEOPLE.
“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.

Can this year be over? Please! Changes suck, but we would love to see this year’s ACM Awards happen. Anywhere.
The Academy of Country Music® and Dick Clark Productions announced today that the 55TH ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS™ will take place in Nashville, TN for the first time in the show’s 55-year history. With a move no one saw coming, the 55th ACM AWARDS® will be the first awards show to broadcast from three iconic Country Music venues. The Grand Ole Opry House, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe. The announcement was made this morning (4/27/20) during Nashville Mayor John Cooper’s daily press conference.
The show will still hosted by the reigning ACM® Entertainer of the Year and 15-time ACM Award winner Keith Urban! The 55th annual ACM Awards will be broadcast on Wednesday, Sept. 16 (LIVE 8:00-11:00 PM ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network, and will stream live and on demand on CBS All Access.
“While we were disappointed to postpone our April show in Las Vegas, we couldn’t be more thrilled to host the rescheduled 55th ACM Awards in the home of Country Music for the first time in the Academy’s history,” said Damon Whiteside, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “First and foremost, we want to ensure the safety of our artists and industry, and to ease the burdens of traveling large teams; therefore, we decided to bring the ACM Awards to them this September in Nashville. Now, more than ever, is the time to bring our community together to honor the best in our genre, and there is no more special place to do that than three of the most revered venues in Country Music – The Grand Ole Opry House, The Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe. A huge thank you to these historic venues and to the state of Tennessee and city of Nashville for all of the support in making this a reality!”

Let’s hope this show happens! For the love of country music!
This year is not going the way people imagined it. Not even close. Everything has been postponed or canceled. The ACM Awards were suppose to happen last night, but have been rescheduled for September 16th. Country music still showed up last night in a beautiful way.
Eric Church’s “Never Break Heart” was the song we needed to hear. He said, ““After some thought and a lot of prayer, here’s what I know. I have hope and you should have hope because since the beginning of time people have gathered… and we will gather again.” To every country artist who performed…thank you.
The country music community is a one big family and we’re all heartbroken over the loss of everyone’s pickup man, Joe Diffie.
Joe’s neighborhood in Nolensville, Tennessee, celebrated the life and memory of Joe.
Joe Diffie’s friends and neighbors honored him with a parade filled with trucks, police cruisers, and tractors (in John Deere Green of course). All of them were blasting their favorite Joe Diffie song.
Unfortunately, because of CDC rules, Joe will not be able to have a traditional funeral service. So, a parade it was!
Veteran country artist Joe Diffie tested positive for COVID-19 (China Virus) this past Friday and then unfortunately (this news sucks) passed away Sunday morning (3/29/20) at the age of only 61.
Joe, who was actually the first country artist to announce publicly that he had been diagnosed, said, “I am under the care of medical professionals and currently receiving treatment…We want to remind the public and all my fans to be vigilant, cautious and careful during this pandemic.”
The Grammy and CMA Award winner, who recently celebrated his 25th anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, is best known for his Hot Country No. 1 songs as “Home,” “If The Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets),” “Third Rock From The Sun,” “Pickup Man” and “Bigger Than The Beatles,” as well as a number of other top 40 country hits in the ‘90s.
