Taylor Dye, of MADDIE & TAE, has been quietly dating a country singer named Jackie Lee. He “outed” their relationship yesterday during an interview. He said, quote, “She’s a really sweet girl and I like her a lot. We’ve been on several dates and she’s really cool and I like hanging out with her.”
Kellie Pickler Doesn’t Want to Have Kids . . . And She’s Still Not Speaking to Her Mom
KELLIE PICKLER has been married to songwriter Kyle Jacobs for four years, but they’re not ready to start popping out kids. In fact, it sounds like it’s never going to happen.
“OK Magazine” asked if CARRIE UNDERWOOD’s pregnancy has her thinking about starting a family. Kellie said, quote, “It’s so exciting for Carrie, but I don’t want the responsibility of raising a human being.” (Sounds kind of final, doesn’t it?)
They also wanted to know if she’s in contact with her ex-con father. She set them straight on that one: Quote, “My dad’s always been part of my life. People think he had nothing to do with raising me, and that’s not true.
“I’ve always been a daddy’s girl. We’re close, and that’s great.”
Apparently, the magazine felt the need to pick at ALL of her old scabs, so they asked if she’s also in touch with her mother. She wouldn’t even go there. She simply said, quote, “No.”

Luke Bryan Brings 13-Year-Old Nephew to 2014 ACC Award
The son of Luke Bryan’s recently deceased brother-in-law was his guest at the 2014 American Country Countdown Awards on Monday night (Dec. 15). Thirteen-year-old Til Cheshire joined the singer and his wife, Caroline, at the show.
The teen’s father, Ben Lee Cheshire, died late last month at the age of 46, leaving the boy and his two siblings with no living parents after mom Kelly died in 2007. People caught up with Bryan after the show, and he shared that an all-boys hunting trip would follow the awards show.
“We’re going hunting tomorrow on a trip down to south Texas,” the star dished. “So he came into town and we dressed him up and let him have a little fun with us tonight.”
Caroline took Til shopping, and Luke loaned him a watch. After winning the Male Vocalist of the Year award, Bryan recognized the fans who supported him through yet another trying time in his life.
“I wanna thank all of my fans for the past couple of weeks in my life for keeping my family in your prayers,” he said, adding that it’s “good to feel loved.”
In addition to his sister, Kelly, and her husband, Bryan also lost a brother named Chris in a 1996 car accident.
