What’s Going On In Country Music?

This week in country music, Jelly Roll shares his thoughts on his fans in relation to his music, Thomas Rhett explains his apparent crazy life, and Reba McEntire adds dates to her tour! Read full details below!


  • Jelly Roll tells Entertainment-Focus.com that his fans are more important to him than making money. “My fans are the most important thing in the world to me. I don’t make music for commercial viability or success, I make music with the intention of hoping to help someone or speaks to someone.”


  • Luke Bryan tells Music Mayhem magazine that he was surprised the first time his wife told him she loved him. “We were talking and she said “I think I love you”. I was so shocked and happy. I think I responded with something suave, like “Oh my God, really? I think I love you too!””


  • Thomas Rhett tells CountryNow.com that his life has been crazy. “Looking at our life now with four children and, by the grace of God, had a little bit of success in this business, and it’s kinda wild to look back and ask yourself, if I could tell my 21-year-old self, this is where you’re going to be, this is crazy,”


  • Carrie Underwood tells NBC that her career has been amazing. “ I’ve been blessed to be a part of an incredible musical journey and lots of incredible moments onstage. I couldn’t ask for a better life.”


  • Reba McEntire’s “Live in Concert” tour kicks off October 13th, but she’s already announcing dates for next year.  She’ll pick it up March 9th in Jacksonville, Florida and take it into mid-April.  Terri Clark and The Isaacs are the openers.
