Blake Shelton will produce a new Hallmark holiday movie called "Time for You to Come Home for Christmas". The film will star actor and reality show host Alison Sweeney, along with actor Lucas Bryant.

The film follows the story of Katherine (portrayed by Sweeney), a recent widow, as she and her son Will travel to her Virginia hometown for Christmas. On the way there, they meet Jack (portrayed by Bryant), who is also on his way home for the holidays. Ultimately, it turns out that Katherine and Jack are en route to the same destination, and as they continue to spend time together, the pair grows closer.

The new film is a sequel to 2018's "Time for Me to Come Home for Christmas", which was based on "Time for Me to Come Home," a song Shelton released in 2012. The singer co-wrote the track with his mother, Dorothy Shackleford, who also wrote a novel of the same name. 

Production is currently underway in Vancouver, Canada. The film will air on the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries channel.

Ashley McBryde will receive the Breakout Artist of the Year award and perform at this year's CMT Artists of the Year special, broadcasting live from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center October 16th. She joins previous honorees Chris Stapleton and Kelsea Ballerini.

Dan + Shay and pop star Justin Bieber are teaming up for a new single to be released tomorrow (Friday).

Dan + Shay teased that a new song was coming Oct. 4 on their Instagram and Twitter accounts on Sept. 29, with Bieber sharing their posts. The country duo took to social media to reveal the collab on Wednesday, with Bieber also sharing the news and calling the song "wedding music."
 
Bieber, Mooney and Smyers have been friends for more than five years, and Dan + Shay attended Bieber’s wedding to Hailey Baldwin on Sept. 30. Dan + Shay are co-managed by Jason Owen and Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun.

Kacey Musgraves will be featured on the soundtrack of "Frozen 2" — Disney’s highly anticipated sequel to their beloved winter adventure "Frozen".

Disney unveiled the tracklist Monday morning, which include end credit songs from Musgraves, pop band Panic! At the Disco and rock band Weezer.

Musgraves shared the cover art for the track, which is titled ‘All Is Found.”  She writes, “I’m thrilled to be featured on the soundtrack for Frozen 2 with my version of one of the beautiful and haunting new songs.”
 
She added some insight to the making of the song, sharing that “we recorded this very still and quietly together, completely live.”


Many of the songs are once again performed by the film’s talented cast, which includes Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff and Evan Rachel Wood.

The album is available for pre-order and slated to be released Nov. 15, just one week before film’s premiere on November 22nd.

Blake Shelton will release a new album, "Fully Loaded: God’s Country", on December 13th.

The 12-song set will feature five new tunes—including “God’s Country” and current single, “Hell Right”—with seven previously recorded hits.  

A&E network’s Garth Brooks biography “Garth Brooks: The Road I’m On,” will premiere over two consecutive nights — 8 p.m. CT on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25.

The country legend announced the bio Monday evening during his weekly Facebook Live event called “Inside Studio G.”

Garth said A&E spent about a year-and-a-half making the documentary and that they traveled to his hometown in Oklahoma and spoke with his wife Trisha Yearwood and others in the country music community, as well as his three adult daughters and their mother.

He said, “You’re going to love Trisha. The girls are going to blow you away. As a dad, I’m so proud. This is the first time they’ve sat in front of a camera. And my love and thanks to Sandy, the girls’ mom. She was brilliant.”
 
Brooks debuted the trailer for the documentary at the beginning of “Inside Studio G.” The two-minute clip follows Brooks on the road, as well as taking viewers back in time to when he was trying to break into country music — and later when he had to walk away from his career. 

In addition to the documentary, A&E’s Garth Week will also include extensive on-air and digital content with Brooks, a special airing of Brooks’ Yankee Stadium concert to premiere 8 p.m. CT Nov. 26 at and more.
