Jerrod Niemann's wife Morgan surprised him while the singer was performing a special show at downtown Nashville bar Famous Saloon on Friday night. He spent the afternoon popping up at a number of bachelorette parties to the excitement of soon-to-be brides.  

Midway through Niemann’s set Friday night, Famous Saloon owner, Storme Warren, hopped up onstage while a life-sized cake was slowly rolled out behind the singer-songwriter, asking him: “If it’s Jerrod Niemann’s birthday and he has given so much of himself to bachelorette parties all over the city, what could possibly be your reward?”  

“It better not be Lee Brice!” Niemann joked.

As Warren led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday,” Morgan stepped out of the cake, perfectly emulating Marilyn Monroe.

Josh Abbott of the Josh Abbott Band frontman is engaged to Taylor Parnell — and the couple’s 11-week-old daughter is the one who popped the question.

The first-time father dressed up their baby girl in an adorable pink onesie that read, “Mommy will you marry Daddy?” and placed a gorgeous ring next to their daughter, Abbott revealed in a series of snaps posted to Twitter on Thursday.

Along with two photos of Emery serving as her daddy’s wing woman, he also attached one of the newly engaged pair looking happier than ever.

Jamey Johnson's recent show at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, S.C., was canceled due to what the venue says was a "safety and security guidelines" violation.

Officially, the venue cancelled the show because “Tonight’s artist refused to adhere to our safety and security guidelines and would not enter the building. Unfortunately, tonight’s show is canceled.”

While Johnson has not commented and his team has not responded to requests for more information, several of his band members objected to any suggestion that they were at fault.

Tony TC Coleman says promoter Live Nation treated the band and crew like terrorists, putting a metal detector in between the tour busses and artist entrance. He says, “We did not come to House of Blues to be treated like we are going to kill the fans."

The band’s Melonie Cannon replied to several comments on the House of Blues Facebook announcement. Cannon writes “No one in our band or crew carried a gun in that building… FYI.” She also defended Johnson from people who claimed the singer had a drinking problem, saying he’d been sober for several years.

The House of Blues adds that refunds will be available at the point of purchase or box office.  

One of Dierks Bentley's songs will be featured in the upcoming movie, "Only the Brave".

Bentley tweeted: "so honored to have a song in this film. it sheds light on the lifestyle of wilderness fire fighters and honors these men and their families."

"Only the Brave" is based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a group of elite firefighters that lost their lives in the tragic Yarnell Hill wildfire that devastated parts of Arizona in 2013. The movie, which stars Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Taylor Kitsch, Jeff Bridges and Jennifer Connelly, opens nationwide on Oct. 20.

Keith Urban and Frankie Ballard performed the Georgia Satellites' "Keep Your Hands to Yourself", Saturday night, during Urban's headlining set at the Great Jones County Fair in Monticello, Iowa.

Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren recently spent some quality one-on-one time together, enjoying the view of a breathtaking sunset on the beach. In a video posted on Instagram, Thomas says the two kayaked to a sand bar to take in the sunset, where they also saw a few dolphins poking their heads out of the water. As Rhett turned the camera to focus on the beautiful sunset, Lauren tried to bring his attention to one of the dolphins jumping out of the water, saying, "Oh, you just missed it!"

Toby Keith is releasing "The Bus Songs" on Sept. 8 on his Show Dog label. The set list includes his recent release "Wacky Tobaccy," a reference to weed. Keith shot a video of the song. And that's not the only song mentioned marijuana as a live version of "Weed With Willie" will be among the dozen songs.

The album's other new composition is "Shi**y Golfer," (available for play on Spotify now).

Never before released recordings include new versions of "Running Block," "Ballad Of Balad," "Hell No" and "The Critic." A live version of the aforementioned "Weed With Willie" has also never been previously released.

Charles Kelley has been an avid golfer most of his life, so there aren't many milestones he hasn't reached on the green.

But, on Tuesday (7/18), Charles did something he's never done on a golf course before: he holed his first double eagle on a par 5 (a score of three shots under par). An excited Kelley shared a Instagram video of him pulling the ball out of the cup, saying, "My life is made." The caption also said Kelley made the 250 yard shot with a 3 wood club.

Two women and a Reba corndog pic!

In 2015, Reba McEntire, shared a photo in which she's holding a corn dog. She's aptly hashtagged "#corndog" in the photo caption.

Two years later, 23-year-old Cheyenne Moen of Spring Grove, Minnesota drove to her nearest Verizon store so she could trade in her old iPhone for the iPhone 7. She's always proudly displayed the Reba corn dog photo as her phone background — both on her old phone and on her new one.

Keith Urban is back in the studio working on new music.

Urban posted a photo of the studio, where a pack of Oblique Strategy cards sits on the soundboard. Created by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt in 1975, these cards offer challenging constraints to help musicians get through creative blocks.

Keith captioned the photo with his exciting announcement that he was back at work.

Urban’s last studio album "Ripcord", was released in May of 2016.
