Sam Hunt Gives Nashville a Sneak Peek at Lipstick Graffit...

Monday, 8:20 PM

Sam Hunt previewed his Lipstick Graffiti tour with a five-song performance at Nashville's Rocketown Monday evening. The mini-concert was staged during Sam's party celebrating his first #1 hit as an artist, "Leave the Night On."

Sam's set included that song as well as his latest single, "Take Your Time."

I just wanna take your time... @samhuntmusic

In keeping with the name of the tour, artists created graffiti paintings in the venue as Sam worked his way through the Montevallo album tracks "Speakers" and "Break Up in a Small Town." Sam recruited four break dancers, including two very young dancers, to bust some moves in the crowd for his final song, "House Party."

Monday, 2:00 PM

Image Courtesy Sony Music/Blue ChairTicket demand for Kenny Chesney's two-night stand in Nashville remains extremely high. That's why Kenny and his team have opened up several hundred more seats for the sold-out Music City dates, coming up March 26 and 27. These shows mark the beginning of Kenny's The Big Revival tour, and he's very excited to see his fans grabbing up the concert tickets so fast.

Says Kenny, "To me, it’s about the passion the people who love this music bring. They give us the fuel to really push -- and I promise we’re working on creating a really rocking show!”

The newly-released tickets are now on sale at Ticketmaster, but they aren't expected to last long.

Thomas Rhett Finds Worthy Competition in RaeLynn & The Ca...

Monday, 10:00 AM

Image Courtesy CMAAs Thomas Rhett prepares to release his sophomore CD later this year, he says he’s happy to be competing with a group of new artists who are constantly upping the ante-- among them, the trio of Music City natives known as The Cadillac Three.

“I’m obsessed with The Cadillac Three, I’m sure that everybody in Nashville is, but they are the funnest people in the world to watch, to me,” he confesses. “So, I wish the best for those guys. They inspire me. We’ve done shows with them a bunch and they -- when you have somebody that opens for you that really like sets that bar, makes you appreciate somebody a whole lot. When somebody can get on stage before you and, you know, I’ve been in that spot. We’ve opened for people and we really just try to get out there and slaughter somebody. That's just what you do.”

 At the end of the day, Thomas says all the competition is friendly.

“It’s fun to be in competition with each other and at the end of the day you’re all best friends and The Cadillac Three have done that for me. They’ve definitely made me step up my game a lot of nights and they’re super-talented and they do it with just three people, which blows my mind.”

When it comes to female artists, Thomas says he has his eye on former Voice contestant RaeLynn.

“I think that RaeLynn is super talented. I’ve written with RaeLynn and me and Rae have gotten to know, we’re on the same record label, and all that kinda stuff, and I’ve seen her play a bunch a little songwriters nights and stuff, and I just think that girl's a superstar. I love her single ‘God Made Girls.’ I think she’s great.”

Right now, Thomas Rhett is on the Anything Goes tour with Florida Georgia Line and Frankie Ballard.
