JOSH TURNER: Hometown Number-One


Josh Turner is busy celebrating another number-one after "Hometown Girl" peaked at the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart over the weekend.

The song seizes the top spot from Jason Aldean’s “Any Ol’ Barstool,” which falls to number-four. 

BLAKE SHELTON: Tired of the Attention


Blake Shelton isn't thrilled with all the attention his relationship with Gwen Stefani is getting, but he understands it.

He says, "In people's defense, I think it's so hard for people to wrap their head around why Gwen would want to be with me. I don't blame 'em."

Blake and Gwen are back in the coaches' chairs tonight (Monday) when the Top 12 contestants perform on The Voice. Shania Twain will be an adviser when the show airs at 8 p.m. on NBC. (Today)

GEORGE STRAIT: Adds Vegas Shows


George Strait has added two dates to his Two Nights of Number-Ones show at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He played his first two shows earlier this month.

George says, “Back when we announced Two Nights of Number-Ones shows, I said if the fans wanted to hear more, we would look at it. Well, we heard them loud and clear. This is something they want more of, so that’s what they will get.”

The new shows are booked for July 28th and 29th. 
Here's a list of the remaining shows:

  • Friday, July 28th
  • Saturday, July 29th
  • Friday, Sept. 1st

GWEN STEFANI, BLAKE SHELTON: Producers Want Lip Service


NBC is apparently less than thrilled with ratings at The Voice lately, so producers want to feel a little more heat between coupled co-stars Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton.

According to Radar Online, the powers that be brought Gwen back this season because viewers loved the romantic vibe between her and Blake -- and they haven't been delivering lately. A source says, “They basically told her that they are really just disappointed in how her and Blake seem to be lacking the in the love department this season. The producers just told Gwen and Blake that they have to honor their contracts. Part of the reason that they invited Gwen back on the show was so that the two of them could let their love blossom on screen -- and they just aren’t!”

MAREN MORRIS: Debuts a New Short, Sassy Haircut


Maren Morris has ditched her long hair for a short and sassy new look.

She posted a photo of the new 'do on Instagram with the caption, "New woman." She followed that with a post on Twitter saying, "What do I do with my hair ties?! #shorthairproblems"

What do you think?

RASCAL FLATTS: New Album May 19th


Rascal Flatts will release their 10th studio album, Back to Us, on May 19th.

Jay DeMarcus says, “There was a nostalgic feeling between the three of us while in the studio for this record, a feeling that was more reminiscent of our first albums. The journey we’ve all been on together is unreal, and I can honestly say I’m even more excited about what is ahead for us."

The guys just celebrated their 16th number-one hit, "I Like the Sound of That."
