Jamey Johnson, Craig Campbell, Travis Denning, Lindsay Ell and Michael Ray are among the artists performing at this year's Gretsch Presents the 6th Annual Georgia On My Mind benefit concert at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. The July 17 show is hosted by the Peach Pickers (Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip) and raises money for the Georgia Music Foundation. 

Thomas Rhett's wife Lauren Akins celebrated the release of her husband's new album "Center Point Road" with a sweet throwback video of one of his high school performances.

Akins took to Instagram to share a series of videos of a young Rhett performing for an audience of his peers. Sitting barefoot on a stool inside the high school auditorium, with a ball cap on his head, a clean-shaven face and a guitar in hand—fans get to see the future country superstar performing an acoustic version of Brad Paisley's "Letter to Me", including the moment forgot some of the words.

Lauren writes, "Over 11 years ago in high school he was STILL just the CUTEST (especially when he forgot the lines-heart in a PUDDLE."
 
"[The] most talented and most resilient guy I knew. I was so beyond proud of him as one of his best friends. He's clearly always been a natural entertainer and the crowd has always loved him hahah  Now I get to be his wife and have a front row seat to it all! I'm still just so proud of you honey!!"

Carrie Underwood is heading to the UK this summer for five recently announced Cry Pretty tour dates across the pond. On Wednesday, the country superstar also revealed that she will be taking the stage at Glastonbury Festival.
 
The five-day festival has an all-star roster of other performers that include headliners The Killers, The Cure, Stormzy, Kylie Minogue and Janet Jackson, as well as George Ezra, Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus, Tame Impala, The Chemical Brothers, Vampire Weekend, Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monaé, Christine and the Queens, Billie Eilish, Hozier and Wu-Tang Clan.    

Glastonbury will take place in Pilton, Somerset, England from June 26 - June 30, with Underwood making an appearance on June 29.  

Meanwhile,  Carrie Underwood was forced to postpone her planned June 9 Cry Pretty Tour show in Toronto due to the NBA team's upcoming run in the finals. "Due to the Raptors advancing to the NBA Finals & the technical set up requirements of the league, the Carrie Underwood concert on June 9, 2019 will be rescheduled to a later date still to be announced."   
 
The news came a day after Twenty One Pilots had to cancel their planned second show -- originally slated for tonight, May 29 -- at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto for the same reasons.

Miranda Lambert and new husband Brendan McLoughlin are NOT breaking up.

In February, the 35-year-old country star revealed in an Instagram post that she had remarried, following her 2015 divorce from Blake Shelton. She introduced her new beau, McLoughlin, a 27-year-old NYPD officer. A recent tabloid report claimed that Lambert is divorcing him after just 122 days of marriage, claiming that time apart was taking its toll on their relationship and she wanted him to settle with her in Nashville and raise a family.

Miranda's rep says the story is "completely made-up," adding, "Not one iota is true. They are happy and together!"
