Jason Aldean will team up with one of his musical idols, Bob Seger, for the next installment of CMT Crossroads.  The two men will combine and exchange vocals on some of their biggest hits and share some of the stories behind them at an invitation-only taping in Franklin, Tennessee (just south of Nashville), on October 28th.

 

Bob may have been getting a jumpstart on learning some of Jason’s songs when he showed up at Jason’s Concert for the Cure in Detroit on October 11th. Bob visited with Jason backstage and Jason snapped a picture of the two of them and said, “One of my idols came out to the show last nite. The one and only Mr. Bob Seger.”

 

An airdate for CMT Crossroads: Jason Aldean and Bob Seger will be announced at a later date.

Dustin Lynch Receives Stitches After being Hit in the Face with Full Can of Beer

The good news is, Dustin Lynch is okay. The bad news is that he was nailed in the face with a full can of beer while he was performing Friday night at MulletFest in Niceville, Florida.  Dustin told People magazine he was hit on his right cheek with a full can of beer that felt like a baseball hitting his face.  Even as he was bleeding from his injury, Dustin finished his show.  After his show he was taken to the emergency room where he received stitches, but Dustin didn’t let his wound stop him from performing Saturday night in Alpharetta, Georgia.

 

When the incident happened, fans in the crowd began pointing to the person who threw the beer and a small brawl broke out, but unfortunately the guy got away. “The moral of the story is don’t throw beer cans, period,” says Dustin. “It’s not cool. This guy caused an incident that almost ruined a great night. The crowd was insanely loud and supportive and that’s why I wanted to finish my show.  I didn’t want to get off the stage until I had to.”

 

Incidentally, Dustin’s brand new single is called “Hell of a Night,” which he says took on a whole new meaning after his experience on Friday night.

Little Big Town became the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry on Friday night. Just two weeks after they were surprised with an invitation by Reba, they were welcome into the Opry family by Vince Gill and Little Jimmy Dickens.  Backstage, Kimberly Schlapman said, “This feels like the biggest moment of our lives and our career.”

Karen Fairchild agreed and said, “I’m so excited about sharing this moment with the band. We’ve been through the highest of highs together, and this is sure to be the highest. This is as good as it gets.”

 

Little Big Town will release their new album, Pain Killer, tomorrow, and Karen Fairchild says, “I just hope people love it as much as we do because we love it. I love this record so much. It is more than I could have ever hoped or dreamed.”  The group is thrilled with the finished product, but Karen admits, “When we started it was a painful process this time. I don’t know why… it was a good process. It just wasn’t as easy as the other one.”

 

Phillip Sweet believes their last album, Tornado, raised the group’s profile and gave them a bigger platform and he says, “I’m really proud that we made Pain Killer, because it’s the best thing we’ve ever done and that we have a platform to share it on is amazing.  We wanted something to stand the test of time.”

Sam Hunt is a Control Freak with His Career Because He Cares

Sam Hunt has his own distinct style and he is very hands on in every capacity of his career from the merchandise he sells at his concerts and on his web site to the fonts used on his promotional materials to the images used in his promotional photos. Sam tells The Country Vibe, “I hate to call myself this, but I’m pretty much a control freak in all capacities, not because I have to be the one that comes up with everything but because I’m the person who’s out front and I’m the person in this brand who is singing the songs and who is representing the music and I don’t want anything to misrepresent who I am or what I’m doing.”

 

Sam even had a hand in putting together the deluxe pre-order bundles for his new album, Montevallo, which includes an old school cassette walkman and a limited edition version of Montevallo on cassette.  Sam says, “That was an idea I had.  A lot of people put their record on vinyl but I come from the era of the walkman.  When I was really young that was the thing that I would listen to a Garth Brooks tape on, so that was more authentic to me.”

 

Montevallo features Sam’s top five debut single, “Leave the Night On,” and will be released one week from today on Monday, October 27th. You can pre-order Montevallo now here.

Hunter Hayes has a song on the soundtrack for the new Nicholas Sparks movie, The Best of Me, and he says it’s a dream come true.  Hunter explains, “One of the coolest things as a songwriter is being anywhere at any point in time and being caught off guard by hearing your song. And one of the coolest, I’ve always thought, one of the biggest dreams is sitting in a movie theater watching a movie.  It’s a pretty cool feeling as a songwriter. It’s a massive milestone for me.”

 

Hunter’s song, “Dream Girl,” can be found on The Best of Me soundtrack, which is available now, and you can hear it toward the beginning of the movie, which just hit theaters on Friday.  Hunter is in the middle of his Tattoo (Your Name) Tour, which will wrap up on December 13th in London, Ontario, Canada.
