ABC/Image Group LAKane Brown and Katelyn Jae are still on their honeymoon in Gatlinburg, TN but the “Lose It” hitmaker’s wasting no time sharing his wedding footage with his fans.

Roughly a week after the couple was married at Mint Springs Farm in Franklin, Tennessee, they’re showing off their special day in the new video for Kane’s song “Good as You.”

“I just want to wake up every day here in this bed/Never leave ‘I love you’ left unsaid/It might take a hundred lifetimes to do/But baby, I just want to be good as you,” Kane sings in the romantic song.

From Kane having Katelyn’s name tattooed on his hand to the bride and groom getting ready for the ceremony, no part of the day is left out. You can check out everything from the ceremony to the after-party to the fireworks in the clip, which is posted on YouTube now.

Before the wedding, Kane told ABC Radio he’d still be on his post-wedding trip when he celebrates his 25th birthday on Saturday. He’ll be back to work by November 9, when his sophomore album, Experiment, comes out. “Good as You” is the latest track that’s available to stream or download now.

Matthew Ramsey recalls the "Sweet," unexpected beginning of Old Dominion's next record

RCA Nashville What happens when Old Dominion heads into the studio without a plan? Well, the answer is their new single, “Make It Sweet.”

Lead singer Matthew Ramsey says the band’s only agenda that particular day was to start work on their follow-up to Happy Endings.

“We went into the recording studio back in January, and we didn’t talk about what songs we were going to record or anything,” he tells Billboard. “We just wanted to start making the next album and we had some dates — the dates snuck up on us.”

He continues, “We hadn’t talked about what songs to record so, we said, “We have this time, why don’t we just see what we can write that day and see what happens?”

Of course, it helps when you have five talented songwriters in your band who’ve written number ones for everybody from Kenny Chesney to Luke Bryan.

“That [final] recording is probably the second time we’ve ever played that song,” Matthew confesses. “You can kind of hear the excitement and the energy we have for it right there, because we had just created it and said, ‘Okay, let’s record it.'”

Old Dominion clinched the ACM Vocal Group of the Year title back in April in Las Vegas. We’ll see if they can lock in the comparable CMA trophy on November 14, when the 52nd annual awards air live on ABC.

Garth Brooks hopes for good weather and warns his fans to be ready to work as he preps to play Notre Dame

No Comments

By Music News Group

ABC RadioOn Saturday night, Garth Brooks stages his massive concert at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana. That afternoon, his wife Trisha Yearwood will throw an already sold-out tailgate party at Irish Green on campus.

Earlier this week, we learned Garth’s Notre Dame show will not only be the prototype for the stadium tour he’s launching in 2019, we also found out it’s being recorded for a December TV special on CBS.

The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year is putting his fans on warning that lots of things have changed.

“If you’re coming to Notre Dame and you came to have fun, scratch it!” he jokes. “You’re gonna get your a** worked off now!”

“When you film,” Garth points out, “it’s work, man. And everybody’s been so sweet. I’ll ask ’em to do things over twice sometimes.”

“I just hope they come to have fun,” he adds, “and hope they come for a whole evening, because we’re gonna need the whole three hours to get this thing shot.”

Should the weather not cooperate on Saturday, Garth has earmarked Sunday as the makeup day. He’s hoping he doesn’t need it, however, because he’s planning to be back in Nashville to participate in the annual Medallion Ceremony at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

“I’m getting to be part of the induction into the Hall of Fame for Ricky Skaggs,” he explains. “It’s the greatest night of your life. And it’s the greatest night of anybody’s life that gets to be involved. So I really hope that I don’t lose that for my sake. So I’m hoping Saturday’s beautiful.”

Garth: Live at Notre Dame! is set to premiere Sunday, December 2 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

"Mama's Song": Carrie Underwood's picked out a name for her little one, as she prepares for a pre-baby move

CMTCarrie Underwood knows the sex of her baby and she and husband Mike Fisher have picked out a name, but they’re keeping both under wraps for now. As she prepares to host next month’s CMA Awards with Brad Paisley for the 11th time, the “Love Wins” hitmaker is also getting ready to move.

“We have picked out a name, but we’re keeping that to ourselves right now,” Carrie tells Entertainment Tonight.

“We’re fixing to move,” she adds. “I haven’t bought anything yet, we still have some of the stuff, cribs and stuff from my son, but we’ll figure it out. We’re about to move so I’ll start buying stuff once we’re there. It’d be pointless to buy it and then move it.”

Three-year-old Isaiah is excited about having a sibling but he’s warned his mom there are some things he won’t do.

“He says he won’t change any poopy diapers, though,” Carrie jokes. “I understand, maybe I can change his mind.”

While we don’t know exactly when Carrie’s second baby is due, she admits being pregnant has been harder this time around.

“It’s definitely different than the first time,” she explains. “When they say every pregnancy is different, it really is. Just different symptoms. I feel like this one is just a little harder on my body for some reason. But it’s been really good. I’m squeezing myself into whatever dresses I can squeeze myself into.”

Wednesday night, Carrie did a mammoth medley of famous country hits by women on CMT’s female-focused Artists of the Year special. If you missed her performance with her 2019 tour mates Maddie & Tae and Runaway June, you can check it out now on YouTube.
