Trisha Yearwood Introduces Her New Project

It is no surprise that Trisha Yearwood loves her puppies! As a matter of fact she has a couple rescues of her own, Emmy and Millie. The two rescues actually inspired her new line of pet products called the Trisha Yearwood Pet Collection and it features anything from pet treats to backpacks, and everything in between. You will be able to find them at Chewy.com, Amazon and Lowes!

Chris Young Shares About New Song With Kane

Chris Young joined our virtual red carpet event in the Mountain High Appliance Studio for the 56th ACM awards and shared something interesting about his new song with Kane Brown. There are a few lines in the new hit, “Famous Friends,” where they introduce some hometown famous friends of theirs. Apparently, they are all real people! Yes, it’s true! Some of them are even featured in the music video. Chris says he has known Brandon since he was a teen and Meghan is a real teacher. What a cool way to honor your friends back home! Chis and Kane are set to perform their latest hit this Sunday night at the ACMs.

Little Big Town Bows Out

The 56th ACM awards are going to have a whole slew of amazing performers and we can’t wait to see them all! Little Big Town, who are up for group of the year, were supposed to be one of those performances but had to bow out. Phillip, one of the band members just tested positive for Covid-19. The news comes just days after Luke Bryan announced that he had to miss his first ever ‘American Idol’ due to contracting the virus. We are sending out our prayers and wish Phillip a speedy recovery. Get well soon and we hope to see you all on the road again soon!

Carly and Lee Win

It came as a big surprise to them both. The 56th ACM awards announce yet another winner, prior to the event on Sunday night. Vocal event of the year goes to Carly Pearce and Lee Brice for their song, “I Hope You’re Happy Now!” The duo were supposed to have performed the song at the 2020 CMAs but prior to the show Lee wound up testing positive for Covid-19. Carly says she picked Lee for the song because she is just such a huge fan of his and wanted him to put his, “Lee thing,” on it. Lee says, he has no idea what that means and he just sang the song and she loved it. We do too and cannot wait to see the performance this Sunday night! Congratulations to them both! This will mark the first time they perform the song at an awards event since the song came out!
