Brett Eldredge's "Long Way" romance with Sadie Robertson started on Instagram

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC/Image Group LA Brett Eldredge may be taking “The Long Way” with his latest hit, but his ultimate destination may very well be the top of the country chart. One of the stops along the journey was to create a romantic video that matches the feel of the song.

“This is such a personal and intimate lyric of getting to know somebody on a deeper level,” Brett explains. “You know, I’ve had videos where I’m in a straight jacket. I’ve had videos when I’m playing multiple, different characters and all that.”

For “The Long Way,” Brett knew he needed a more direct approach.

“I wanted it to be very poignant, straight to the point of what the song was, and that’s what we did with this video,” he says. But perhaps the most important decision was finding the right leading lady.

“In my Instagram feed, I’d seen videos of Sadie Robertson…” he says of the Duck Dynasty star. “It was just like, ‘I just love her personality. She seems like a great person.’ She’s everything that this song captures in the lyrics.”

“You know it’s like, ‘We’ve got to find a girl like Sadie,'” Brett recalls. “And somebody was like, ‘Why don’t we just ask Sadie?'”

“She’s a big country fan,” he continues. “She loved the song and jumped on board, and it was just a really fun experience. And she’s a great person, and it just really came across. You could tell we were really enjoying the experience. It was awesome.”

Tonight, Brett plays Bossier City, Louisiana, as he continues on the Country Music Freaks Tour with Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins and Carly Pearce.

'The Bachelor' finale: It had to be...you?

No Comments

By ABC News Radio

Arie and Becca on “The Bachelor”; ABC/Paul Hebert(NEW YORK) — Monday night, the three-hour season 22 finale of The Bachelor put everything on the line and promised the first unedited scene in reality TV history. Arie Luyendyk Jr. began the night still conflicted about whether he wanted to propose to Lauren Burnham or Becca Kufrin, but by the end of the night he shocked Bachelor Nation with his decision.

With host Chris Harrison watching along with a live studio audience, the show kicked off with Arie in Peru with his family talking about Lauren and Becca. He told them how confused he was because he said he loves them both.

Lauren got to meet the family first. There were smiles and hugs but the meeting lacked the upbeat quality of when Arie brought Krystal home. Lauren admitted her concern about being let down. The family seemed to embrace her in spite of her natural concerns.

Next, Becca got to meet the family and was very confident about her feelings for Arie. She talked to his parents, who both pointed out that they had met Lauren. When Becca talked to Arie Sr. and he said whomever Arie picked, that “either way, I’m fine with it.”

Arie’s mother Mieke was not much help because, like Arie, she said she loved Lauren and Becca both.

Later, the family counseled Arie that Lauren is insecure and will need constant reassurance and Becca stands on her own. so they endorsed Becca for candidate for marriage to Arie. But Arie said he sees a life with both of them and needed more time to think about it. Caroline told Chris that she doesn’t think Arie knows what he wants, which has been evident throughout the show.

Lauren and Arie went to Machu Pichu and Arie confessed to be leaning toward her, saying it’s the little things about her that he notices and appreciates, as well as her looks and personality. He said he can’t imagine saying goodbye to that.

In the studio, Chris asked Bekah M. what she thought and she replied that if Arie is this confused, then a proposal is absolutely the wrong thing to do.

Arie spent time walking around with Becca and enjoying the colorful shops and scenery. Becca admitted there are so many emotions happening. Arie admits that after spending time with Becca he’s in love with her and still conflicted about what to do.

At the final rose ceremony, Lauren showed up in a long white beaded dressand Chris Harrison walked her to a backyard filled with alpacas. Lauren said she could not imagine Arie not proposing to her.

After Lauren confessed her love to him, Arie told her that he can’t go through with it, and that there was something holding him back — and then he walked out. Leaving in the car and wiping away tears, Lauren said she didn’t understand.

Back at the ranch, Becca arrived wearing a black lace dress and feeling positive and ready. Arie greeted her and told her she looked beautiful, and that his love for her is immeasurable. Dropping to one knee, Arie proposed and Becca said, “Of course!” They kissed and Arie offered her the final rose before they waltzed around deliriously.

Later, Bachelor Nation was treated to unedited footage of Arie and Becca together in Peru the weeks after the proposal. Everything looked fine until, back in Los Angeles, Arie confessed that he missed Lauren and had made a mistake. He vowed to call off the engagement and break up with Becca.

Becca was humiliated and upset though the two addressed it rather calmly. She finally got up and declared, “I’m done!” and walked out. As she started to pack, Arie went into her room and told her he would leave. But he only went outside and when Becca cried in the bathroom, he went back to try again to talk to her. But Becca only wanted him to go, and after 10 minutes of dragging it out, Arie finally left.

Back in the studio, Becca watched the clip, which she described as “Brutal.”

“After he left, I went through all of the emotions,” she said. “I was sad, I stayed in LA for a few days, and cried for probably four days straight. And grieved the loss of that relationship, and the future that I thought we were going to have. I am angry at times. I feel betrayed a lot of the time, just because I feel like I was lied to for so long.”

Chris then announced that Arie and Becca would return Tuesday night on the live After the Final Rose special, and meet for the first time since the breakup.

The Bachelor: After the Final Rose airs Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Skirmishes flare at Michigan State University before Richard Spencer speech

No Comments

By Brittany Martinez

Scott Olson/Getty Images(EAST LANSING, Mich.) — undreds of protesters descended on Michigan State University’s campus during spring break to either decry or endorse white nationalist Richard Spencer’s planned speech on Monday afternoon. Two dozen people were arrested as a result of the protests, police said.

According to MSU Police Capt. Doug Monette, a melee outside MSU’s Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education led to some of the estimated 500 protesters assembling there being taken into custody and some could face misdemeanor or felony charges.

There were no injuries to any law enforcement personnel, he confirmed.

The ruckus delayed Spencer’s 4:30 p.m. speech by at least 30 minutes.

Footage of the skirmishes outside the pavilion showed police wearing riot gear and wielding wooden sticks met hundreds of vocal protesters.

Spencer, the 39-year-old firebrand leader of the “alternative-right” movement, billed the event on YouTube as one that would do more than just discuss alt-right ideas, but instead “talk about where we’re going and what we ultimately want.”

The alt-right has grown in the mainstream by attracting a following of young conservatives embracing “a white identity” and combating social justice and multiculturalism.

They have found a distinct opponent on the far left of the political spectrum with the rise of the anti-fascist or “antifa” movement.

Spencer has drawn a mix of support and scorn wherever he goes. Most notably he tagged along in Charlottesville last October to protest the city’s planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Protests the day after Spencer’s nighttime march resulted in the death of one woman and over a dozen injuries when a car was intentionally driven into counterprotesters.

During Monday’s event, some protesters carried handwritten signs with Spencer’s first name shortened to read “Dick Spencer.”

Over two hours before the event was slated to begin, Monette had only counted around 150 protesters, and at that time said “everything has been peaceful on campus.”

To prep for any problems, the captain said campus police received “mutual aid” from other law enforcement agencies in Michigan.
