Luke Bryan Battles Covid
This pandemic hit home for one of the biggest names in country music, Luke Bryan. After being diagnosed and missing his first ever ‘American Idol,’ he says that his wife Caroline is the one who nursed him back to health. The ACM entertainer of the year, accepted his award this last Sunday virtually and says he is feeling much better. He also said that it got really rough for a few days and Caroline definitely handled it better than he did! We don’t doubt that for a second, but we are glad you are feeling better Luke.
Maren Morris the Mom
There is no doubt that country singer Maren Morris isn’t ashamed of being a mom. In fact, she has been pretty vocal about it over he social platforms and even becoming an inspiration to moms everywhere. In a series of posts over the last couple months, Maren has encouraged moms to not be ashamed of the ‘mom bod,’ but to embrace it. She says that moms should never try to hide evidence of having a kid and that having that proof of something only a small percentage of women can achieve is nothing short of remarkable!
Gabby Barrett Gets Some Welcome Advice
She has been breaking records all year and is one of the newest moms in country music. Gabby Barrett says that her idol, Carrie Underwood has been nothing but nice to her since the news came out that she was expecting and told her that if she ever needed advice, she would be more than happy offer up some. Well after the ACMs this last Sunday night, Carrie did offer up a bit of advice for the new mom. She told her that there are all kinds of books out there, but the best piece of advice she could offer… do your own thing!
Moms Get Their Deserved Attention
A new television show celebrating moms is coming out May 6th on Paramount+, called “From Cradle to Stage.” The show features a ton of country stars like Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson and even Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters/Nirvana and their mothers!
