Brett Eldredge Is Open to Being a Contestant on “The Bachelorette”
You may remember earlier this year when People.com suggested “Five Reasons” why BRETT ELDREDGE should be the next “Bachelor”. Well, Brett’s been hearing about that ever since . . . and he has a few thoughts.
He says, quote, “It’s a flattering thing that [they] came out and said that, but all this touring, man. I just don’t have time to do it right now, but I’ve been a bachelor for a while, so I guess I’m at least kinda good at that part of it.”
He was also asked if he’d consider being on “The Bachelorette” . . . and for some reason that appeals to him. He answered, quote, “That sounds fun.”
Justin Moore Will Still Love His Songs 30 Years from Now
I used to think artists got bored playing the same hit songs night after night. They never show it, of course, because people are paying good money to see them. Well, that little theory continues to crumble.
First there was BRANTLEY GILBERT who said he never gets bored because each song is a personal story and he relives that moment every time he sings it.
And now JUSTIN MOORE says it doesn’t happen for him because he picks songs that he’ll never get tired of playing. Quote, “The best advice I ever got in this business was ‘Don’t record anything that you don’t want to play for the next 20 or 30 years.’
“So I keep that in the back of my mind. And I’m proud of the songs we’ve made successful . . . I’m proud to be able to play any of them.”
I suppose there’s a chance Justin and Brantley have to say positive stuff about their music because it would be sabotage otherwise. Who’d want to see someone in concert if they knew the artist secretly hated some of their own songs?
KEITH URBAN released the video to “Raise ‘Em Up“, his song with ERIC CHURCH. Keith says the video’s inspiration came from watching his daughters play. Quote, “We put the song on and were watching a film of our girls and they just went together beautifully. It captured the spirit of what’s at the heart of this song.”
JANA KRAMER wanted to elope with her fiancé, NFL free agent Michael Caussin, but he said no. She tellsTheCountryVibe.com, quote, “He wanted the wedding, which is usually flipped.” They’re also trying to keep it on the cheap. She adds, quote, “I’m not even hiring a florist because it’s expensive.”
CMT.com has Six Reasons you should be loving LITTLE BIG TOWN’s “Girl Crush”. The only one that’s totally original is #5, which is, “country music needs more junior-prom, slow-dance songs.”
