After more than two years of dating, Tyler Farr proposed to his girlfriend, Hannah Freeman, on Sunday at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The singer was able to arrange special access to country music’s “Mother Church” so that he could get down on one knee and pop the big question.
Tyler said, “Yes I’m a sucker for heartbreak songs. But, with every heartache you learn, and that coincides with my music career; which all the times and trials led me to find my best friend, a woman that truly makes me a better person. And I am now so very blessed and proud to call her my fiance . . . Truly the best moment of my life! And I honestly couldn’t think of a better church than the mother church of country music.”
The couple has not yet announced a wedding date.
For now, Tyler is celebrating the release of his sophomore album, Suffer In Peace, which was released late last month.
Pepper Daniels chats with Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel ahead of their Good Medicine Presents show at SLO Brew May 21st. They talk about the King of Western Swing, Bob Wills, and the new tribute album AATW is touring on. Featuring 22 tracks, great guest stars, and amazing music, see it live in concert as AATW returns to the Central Coast for the first time in many, many years.
Steven Tyler earned a new fan when he serenaded her with “Happy Birthday” on a Southwest flight recently. The singer learned that little “Carly,” who was seated behind him in first class, was celebrating her big day so he happily gave the girl a musical gift. Her mom posted the video to YouTube writing, “What a great guy!” Steven will debut his first country single on the American Idol finale next week. The song is called “Love Is Your Name.”
Not everyone wants to celebrate the release of Kim Kardashian’s new selfie book, Selfish. The reality star was signing copies of the book at Barnes & Noble in New York when she was ambushed by a group of anti-fur protesters pretending to be fans.
People waited in line just to say to her face that she is “the most disgusting human being on the planet” and “You need to stop wearing fur. It’s horrible. You’re a terrible person.” Security quickly took action but other people were waiting for their turn. Another protester said, “Can you make the autograph out to all the animals that have been tortured and killed for you to wear a fur coat?” Someone also asked, “Kim, do you know how many animals are tortured and killed for your jackets? Do you know how many animals are skinned alive and anally electrocuted?”
Other people in the crowd just yelled things like “murderer” and “Shame on you!”
The whole thing was caught on video and uploaded to YouTube.
Kim was previously targeted by PETA when she got flour-bombed on a red carpet in 2012.
Brantley Gilbert is making a very big statement with his body. He’s showing his support for the Second Amendment in a permanent way — a huge tattoo on his back that extends from his shoulders to his waistline and includes two guns and the full text of the amendment.
Brantley Instagrammed a picture of his new ink writing, “I wanted to take my support of the 2nd amendment to another level, so my boy Carl Grace came by the house and hooked me up yesterday!!!”
Brantley performs at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturday (May 9th) with headliners Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean.
Kacey Musgraves’ new single, “Biscuits,” resulted from the same writing session as her critically-acclaimed single, “Follow Your Arrow.” Kacey co-wrote the song with good friends Shane McAnally and Brandy Clark, and she says the experience was a blast.
“Biscuits” is the first single from Kacey’s upcoming album, due out later this year.
The singer recently announced partnerships with Lucchese Boots, with which she will be collaborating on some boot designs, and a new vodka called Zodiac Vodka, which she says is gluten-free.
Fans started lining up long before the 1 p.m. parking lot open to plant the flag of the No Shoes Nation at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, on Saturday, the first stadium show of the summer on Kenny Chesney‘s The Big Revival tour. Kenny has teamed with Jason Aldean’s Burn It Down tour for the dozen shows on the schedule.
Kenny told the crowd, “It’s an absolute honor to be here tonight and open the 49ers Stadium as the first music act. To feel your love, feel you energy . . .. We are here tonight for one reason: because you are here with us tonight! That you care about music, that you have it in your life . . .”
Kenny’s set last for two hours, with Jason returning to join him on “Summer of 69″, “Hurt So Good” and “The Only Way I Know.”
The show drew a crowd of nearly 46,000.
Kenny added, “I know it’s gonna be rockin’ any time we come to the Bay area. Maybe it’s the year away, maybe it was the full moon, but the crowd at Levi’s Stadium was one of the best crowds we’ve played to ever. They brought it hard, pushed us in the best way – and really took me and the band up with their singing, their cheering, their energy.”
Kenny kicked off his The Big Revival 2015 tour in March with two sold-out nights at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
