DUSTIN LYNCH has taken to opening his shows with, "To The Sky" . . . because the song's energy and lyrics are perfectly suited to the beginning of a concert.
He says, quote, "It's about just having hands in the air and drinks in the air and girls in the air. It's about that moment . . . those moments that I get to share a lot of times throughout the year with my fans.
"A lot of people get there four or five hours early, and they're just standing, waiting."
Dustin actually loves that fans are pointing their camera phones at him when he hits the stage. Quote, "That first song, the phones are out, the SnapChats are going off, and they're videoing and taking the pictures.
"When they post it to social media and to SnapChat, it's the whole, 'Wish you were here,' or 'You shoulda came.' So, it's a great advertisement, too, for us."
"I'm at a point now where I've accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish."
A. Dolly Parton
B. LeAnn Rimes
C. Faith Hill
D. Martina McBride
F. Lee Ann Womack
ANSWER: F: LEE ANN WOMACK, in the "Los Angeles Times", on why she didn't succumb to the pressure of cramming "hit songs" into her Grammy nominated album "The Way I'm Livin'" . . . which is up for Best Country Album.
She adds, quote, "What I wanted to do this time was just make real music and not think about anything else."
Lee Ann is all about recording great songs, and doesn't care what style or label people want to put them into. It's a path followed by one of her heroes. Quote, "When I started out, I said I want to be like WILLIE NELSON.
"He's not a certain style or a certain genre; he doesn't make you think of any one thing. He's just Willie."
CRAIG MORGAN is angry with SETH ROGEN for his Tweet about the movie "American Sniper". Here's what Seth wrote, quote, "'American Sniper' kind of reminds me of the movie that's showing in the third act of 'Inglourious Basterds'."
Seth's referring to a fake Nazi propaganda film from 'Inglourious Basterds' that features a German sniper killing Allied soldiers. Comparing that to the story of Chris Kyle, a real American soldier, whom some say is a hero, is too much for Craig.
He hit up Facebook with a few choice words. He started out by honoring Chris as, quote, "a great American who served his country honorably."
And then he lit into Rogen: Quote, "You are fortunate to enjoy the privilege and freedom of working in and living in the U.S., and saying whatever you want (regardless of how ignorant the statement) thanks to people like Chris Kyle.
"I'm sick and tired of people like you running your mouth when you have no idea what it takes for this country to maintain our freedoms. If you and anyone like you don't like it, leave." (You can read Craig's full Facebook post here.)
For his part, Seth Rogen has since backed off and said that he actually LIKED "American Sniper". And Seth wants you to know that it only "reminded him" of the QUENTIN TARANTINO scene.
A video of a cop in Delaware lip-synching "Shake It Off" by TAYLOR SWIFT went viral over the weekend. It's dashboard footage of him driving around in his squad car, acting all goofy. And you can tell he's hamming it up for the camera, but it's still pretty funny.
On Friday, an old guy in Sacramento, California drove through a car wash at FULL SPEED. It's not clear what happened, he was confused and slammed on the gas. But from the video, he looks like he was doing about 30 miles an hour.
He ended up making it the whole way through, then crashed into a vacuum cleaner. Luckily, he's okay. But the company . . . Quick Quack Car Wash . . . says it caused at least $60,000 worth of damage to equipment.
They're taking it in stride though. They posted the security footage to YouTube, and set it to their goofy jingle, like it's an ad.
This right here is must see TV. One of the most iconic movie characters of all time coming to life before our very eyes.
