10 Things You Most Likely Didn't Know About Luke Bryan

Jul 17, 2014 -- 10:44am
 
You might need to double-check yourself if you think you know ALL there is to know about Luke Bryan. Bryan has been on a steady climb to becoming a country legend, but his story — both past and present — is filled with twists, turns and even some what-in-the-worlds?! Covering everything from his childhood talents, to his guilty pleasures, to his musical theater days — here are 10 things you didn’t know about Luke Bryan!
 
10. He made girls swoon as Frank Butler in 'Annie Get Your Gun.'
 
 Bryan was in a high school performance of the play ‘Annie Get Your Gun.’ Clad head-to-toe in white (complete with cowboy hat and fringe!), Bryan played the male lead, Frank Butler, who falls in love with Annie Oakley. It was an appropriate role for a future country heartthrob.
 
9. His first job was at a grocery store.
 
 At the tender age of 12, Luke Bryan was already learning the value of a hard day’s work. While many kids his age were probably being handed their weekly allowance, Bryan stocked and cleaned up produce at the local grocery store, Rubo’s, in his hometown of Leesburg, Ga.
 
8. His kids' nicknames are 'Bo Bo' and 'Tater Bug.'
 
 Bryan has two sons with wife Caroline -- Bo, 5, and Tatum (Tate), 3. The adorable, perfectly-country nicknames, which Bryan spilled in an article online, are a testament to the special love the singer has for his kids. "It all begins with family," he said after Tate was born. "It's more important than anything else in life." Hopefully, the brothers won’t mind their dad's disclosure too much when they’re older.
 
7. He has his wife's initials tattooed on his rear end.
 
 No, seriously. Jason Aldean outed Bryan on tour in 2012 for having the initials of his wife and college sweetheart, Caroline, tattooed on his rear end. “He was on tour with me when he got it,” Aldean explained to Chicago station WUSN. “He was complaining about it [itching], and I was like, ‘what is wrong with you?’” Aldean went on to reveal that Bryan proceeded to show him his bare rear end, and that's when he saw the initials. Bryan has not officially confirmed it, but it's hard to deny a rather detailed eye-witness account.
 
6. Movie popcorn is his 'guilty pleasure.'
 
 Everyone has that weakness -- a food we know we shouldn’t eat, but when it’s nearby, we have to indulge. According to Bryan, movie popcorn is his. Whether he likes it with extra butter or not is still in question.

Blake Shelton & Carrie Underwood’s Shows earn Emmy Nods

Jul 11, 2014 -- 12:21pm
 
Blake Shelton and Carrie Underwood are each looking at a prestigious honor outside of their usual realm — they both have shows that have been nominated for Emmys!
The Emmy Awards, which celebrate the television industry, have recognized both country singers for their recent contributions to television. Underwood’s ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ — starring the country superstar as Maria von Trapp and Stephen Moyer as Captain von Trapp — has been nominated for a whopping four Emmys in 2014. In addition, ‘The Voice,’ where Shelton serves as a mentor and judge, is also up for an Emmy this year.
Luckily, the country stars’ shows won’t be going up against each other, as they’re nominated in different categories. 
The Emmy Awards will be hosted by ex-’SNL’ cast member and ‘Late Night’ host and funny man Seth Meyers. The 2014 Emmy Awards will be held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. and will be shown live on NBC Aug. 25th.
 
 
 

Little Big Town give us 5 Tips for “Day Drinking”

Jul 10, 2014 -- 11:49am
 
A current contender in the country summer anthem category, Little Big Town’s single “Day Drinking” has begun its trek up the charts, leaving us to wonder: how can one be sure you are partaking in the art of day drinking correctly?
 
Tip #1 – LOCATION IS KEY
“Vacation day drinking is the best,” explains Karen. “On the beach, on vacation? There is just nothing like it. Or, I love having an afternoon lunch in Chicago with a glass of wine, followed up by some shopping. Getting a little loose with your girlfriends really is the best way to shop.”
Tip #2 – PICK YOUR DRINK WISELY
“I love to partake in a mai tai during the day, but only when it’s a special occasion like when we are on vacation in Hawaii or Mexico or someplace like that,” says Jimi, whose wife has been known to prefer skinny margaritas. “I love how the fresh fruit juice mixes with the rum. Aaahhh . . . it’s so good.”
Tip #3 – STOCK UP
“Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy is my go-to beer for the summer,” explains Jimi. “When those things come into season, the tour bus is immediately stocked.”
Tip #4 – DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE
“I love these fans that come out to all of the summer festivals,” says Karen. “They can day drink all day because they don’t have to go anywhere else when the sun goes down. They can just go straight to their tent.”
Tip #5 – TAKE IT EASY
“Day drinking is all about moderation,” Karen concludes. “Take it slow and easy.”
 
 
 

Miranda Lambert cuts off her long blond locks

Jul 09, 2014 -- 3:59pm

 

Miranda Lambert surprised everyone this week when she cut her long blond locks in favor of an adorable bob.

Lambert's stylist, Lee Wright, talked to People magazine about why she chose the dramatic change.

 

"After all her recent photo shoots and covers in long hair, she decided she was ready for a change," Wright said. But Wright said Lambert didn't want to cut it all off at first.

"When she sat down in my chair she looked in the mirror and got nervous, so we did kind of a shoulder-draping cut first," he added.

Then, Lambert got together with husband Blake Shelton's stylist and cut off six more inches. "She sent me a photo, 'I did it!' It looks very cute like this,” Wright said, “but it really looks fierce when she rocks it out for the stage.”

Video: Jimmy Fallon as Neil Young Singing Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy' with Crosby, Stills and Nash

Jul 08, 2014 -- 12:01pm
I'm a big fan of Iggy Azalea's music, but we can all agree it's missing one thing: classically precise, four-part harmonies. 
Fortunately, we have Jimmy Fallon for that. 
 
Last night (Monday July 7th), Fallon showed off his impeccable knack for combining the pop culture of today with the musical legends of yesterday, bringing out David Crosby, Graham Nash and Stephen Stills to perform a beautiful folk-rock rendition of
Iggy Azalea's "Fancy."
 
Florida Georgia Line are on the tonight show with Jimmy Fallon tonight on NBC at 11:30pm
