At first glance, Gilbert looks like a pretty tough guy, with all his tattoos and piercings, so you might think there isn’t much that scares him. The “Bottoms Up” singer says there isn’t much that he’s afraid of, but he does admit:
“As far as being afraid of anything, there’s not a lot. But, I do have three things that kinda mess with me a little bit, and that’s my biggest fears: and that’s snakes, sharks and commitment.”
Brantley is currently out on his Let It Ride Tour with Thomas Rhett and Eric Paslay, and his new album, Just As I Am, will be released on May 19th.
Josh will be at Lifeway Christian Store, located at 1725 Galleria Blvd. in Franklin, Tenn. (just outside Nashville), on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 from 6:15 pm - 7:15 pm to sign copies of his first book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood.

Releasing nationwide April 29 with Thomas Nelson, an imprint of Harper Collins Christian Publishing, Man Stuff shares stories Turner has learned over the years as a son, brother, friend, husband and father.
“I was raised in a strong Christian family in a tight-knit community in rural South Carolina,” said Turner in the book’s introduction. “I was taught why being thoughtful, respectful, and considerate of others makes life more fulfilling, and why trusting God with your life’s decisions is wise. If all that sounds a little old-fashioned, well, that’s because it is. And I’m okay with that.”
Jase Robertson, star of A&E’s hit television series "Duck Dynasty," provides the foreword for Man Stuff.  Last year, Turner sang a duet with Robertson’s wife Missy on the song “Why I Love Christmas” from the Platinum-certified holiday album, Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas.

The book signing begins at 6:15 pm and ends at 7:15 pm and is free and open to the public.

Just announced:  the first group of musical performers at this year’s Billboard Music Awards.

Bryan, Imagine Dragons, John Legend and OneRepublic will all join previously announced Jason Derulo, as performers in the live awards show, airing on Sunday, May 18th, on ABC from 8:00 PM–11:00 PM ET, from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Luke is a finalist in 6 categories this year, including Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Country Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Country Album and Top Country Song twice. Once for his hit “Crash My Party,” and again for “That’s My Kind Of Night.”

Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital singles sales, radio airplay, touring, streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, VEVO, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music. These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the reporting period of March 11, 2013 through March 9, 2014. 

Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of songs and albums.  The “2014 Billboard Music Awards” is produced by dick clark productions.

Kacey picked up the ACM Award for Album of the Year for "Same Trailer Different Park," was thrilled that George Strait was voted Entertainer of the Year.

In fact, she was so happy for him, she crashed the pressroom while he was talking to the press backstage, telling the Country Music Hall of Famer she loved him.
“Growing up in Texas, George Strait has been a huge influence on me. He has stayed so true to what he is since day one. He has never wavered,” says Kacey. “When you get George Strait, you get quality – quality songs, quality voice. He’s just so classy, and he’s not hard to look at either.”
