Cole Swindell Previews Two "What the Hell" Moments on His...

Tuesday, 5:00 AM

ABC/Image Group LAA yearly polar plunge with his tourmates has become a tradition for Dierks Bentley, one Cole Swindell admits he wasn’t particularly excited about, once he signed up for the What the Hell Tour. Since Dierks decided to take 2017’s icy dip by himself late last week, Cole is officially off the hook.

“That was the only thing I was not looking forward to about touring with Dierks… and I got to get out of it, somehow,” Cole laughs. “He'll get me back, somehow, so I better hush!”

The trek kicks off Thursday in Dayton, Ohio, and Cole says he’s already been blown away in rehearsal.

“You've heard me talk about Dierks… how much I think of him as an artist. But then to get to know him, and to see what kind of person he is, I couldn't be more proud to be on tour with anybody,” Cole says. “Just one day in rehearsal, and our new production and the video and the content…” he trails off, indicating how impressed he’s been.

Cole says you should prepare for an overwhelming moment when he sings the #1 hit he wrote about his dad.

“The content for 'You Should Be Here' -- I'm so glad I don't have to look at that when I'm singing,” he says, “because it's the most unbelievable thing… You know, lyrics are one thing but to have stuff that pulls everybody in and I mean, looking up there and seeing my dad's eyes on the screen… I hope people can take that and relate that to who they're missing.”

Cole also teases another special moment in the show when he performs “Flatliner,” the new single that features Dierks.

Jon Pardi will open the tour, which also stop in Lousiville, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee this week.

Is There New Music on the Way from Lady A?

Monday, 6:00 PM

ABC/Image Group LAIt looks like Lady Antebellum may have a little something up their sleeve.

On Monday, invitations went out from Lady A’s publicist, inviting members of the country music community to a mysterious event this Thursday night. Included in the email is a silhouette that appears to be Charles KelleyHillary Scott and Dave Haywood. Hillary seems to be dancing, while Dave is holding his guitar.  

Though the threesome took much of 2016 off so Charles and Hillary could focus on their side projects, we do know the band never stopped working on new music together.

This weekend, Charles played in a guitar pull at the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids event in Memphis. Meanwhile, Hillary is up for multiple Grammys at the awards show next month in Los Angeles, for her Love Remains album with her family.

Stay tuned later this week to find out what’s next for Lady A.

A Father/Daughter Viral Video Turns Into Big Sales for Ch...

Monday, 2:00 PM

ABC/Image Group LA Chris Stapleton’s landmark Traveller album is back in the top ten on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, likely thanks to a viral video of a daughter and her dad.

In the clip, the father sings along to Stapleton’s “Tennessee Whiskey,” while his daughter reacts. So far, it’s been viewed more than 20 million times since it was posted to Facebook on January 1.  

The former #1 album moves from #22 to #10 this week, while Stapleton’s cover of the George Jones classic makes an ever greater gain: it re-enters Billboard’s Digital Song Sales tally at #24, moving 26,000 downloads. That’s an increase of 208 percent compared to the week before.
