6 Things We Added to Sam Hunt's Wedding Registry

Sam Hunt is fully-grown and likely has a KitchenAid mixer and plenty of cups and plates at his house, so we added a few things to his wedding registry. Especially if he's really walking down the aisle in the next 48 hours. Hannah Lee might need a few of these things.

6 Things We Added to Sam Hunt's Wedding Registry:

1. GPS Unit
Google Maps isn't always right and he's gonna need to navigate those backroads. Precious cargo on board!

2. Trash Bags
Gotta clean up after that house party.

3. Fire Extinguisher
Gotta put that fire out now, Sam! The breakup is off.

4. Handcuffs
Not like that-- to commemorate how they fell in love-- in a cop car.

5. A Clapper
So, they can leave the night on as much as possible.

6. New Matching Watches
He's definitely here to take her time now.

Florida Georgia Line is Working on Their Choreography for Their Stadium Shows with the Backstreet Boys

Many country music fans who also grew up loving the Backstreet Boys recently had a number of dreams come true when Florida Georgia Line announced the Backstreet Boys would be appearing with them during a few shows this summer.

FGL is looking forward to "Party, people. Talking about getting back to the basics. Summertime, music, parties, stadiums. It's a dream come true."

After the boys didn't really tell us they were looking forward to doing some choreography, we just asked them about it, to which they replied, "you never know, we'll get some in there."


Brett Eldredge Singing Miley Cyrus and Kelsea Ballerini at His "Best Buddies'" Prom is the Sweetest Thing Ever

Brett Eldredge hosted the "Today" show Friday (Feb. 11) morning, but he hopped a plane back to Nashville just in time to make it to the prom.

His buddy, Matt, asked him to come.

Kelly Sutton

The Best Buddies organization pairs individuals with disabilities with a buddy and I had the honor of hosting their prom (which was a total party!).

Brett told me he knew it was one he couldn't miss. (Keep watching for the interview.)

So we sang karaoke to Miley Cyrus and Kelsea Ballerini and danced on stage. And it was the best night ever for Matt and Brett and me.


Lauren Alaina's High School Bullies Were Thousands of Nasty People on the Internet

Lauren Alaina's new album Road Less Traveled covers the past five years of her life. According to Lauren, it's been a wild ride.

Eating disorders, divorcing parents, online bullying, she's been through it all. I sat down with the songstress to talk about her new album and how she's turned those negatives into positives.

Now, she is relaunching her career as a healthy, happy 22-year-old. She admits when she wrote the title track with Meghan Trainor and Jessie Frasure, she wasn't living out the words she was singing.

It's all good now. In fact, it's better than it's ever been. Check out Road Less Travelled and look for the movie with the same name to be released later this year.

Florida Georgia Line Invite the Backstreet Boys Onstage to Perform "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" in Nashville

Backstreet Boys and Florida Georgia Line may have just created the first country super group.

FGL's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard both admitted their first concert ever was Backstreet Boys.

Clearly the love of BSB has lingered.

They recently collaborated on "God, Your Mama and Me", featured on the Dig Your Roots album.

At their hometown concert in Nashville, BK and Tyler brought their pre-teen memories back to life!

Backstreet Boys onstage, full choreography, all of it. Could this be a glimpse of what is to come?

Will there be a FGLBSB tour? We can only hope.

Kacey Musgraves Made it Snow in Nashville in September

Last night, Kacey Musgraves had a Christmas party in September!

Everything was decorated for the holidays, and it even snowed.

Kelly Sutton

Yep. Kacey Musgraves made it snow.

Her new album A Very Kacey Christmas has favorites like "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer," "Let it Snow" and "Feliz Navidad".

But it wouldn't be Kacey, without something unconventional! "A Willie Nice Christmas" is a song written by Kacey that features Texas icon Willie Nelson.

The album hits stores on October 28th.

Carrie Underwood Celebrates 23rd and 24th No. 1 Singles with Party and Acoustic Performance in Nashville

Talk about full circle moments -- nearly 10 years ago, country music queen Carrie Underwood released her groundbreaking single "Jesus Take the Wheel," fresh off her win on "American Idol" -- and the song went straight to No. 1 on the Country chart.

The same writers, Brett James and Hillary Lindsey, who helped pen Carrie's first chart topper are also responsible for her 24th No. 1 single, "Church Bells." The talented trio joined together to celebrate their success with a party in Nashville.

While there, Carrie performed an acoustic version of the hit and it was, obviously, flawless.

And, since Carrie earns No. 1 hits faster than she can plan a party, the songstress and friends also celebrated her 23rd No. 1 hit "Heartbeat" with songwriters Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley.

Before the party, Carrie talked about her upcoming role as co-host for the 50th Annual CMA Awards. She said Brad Paisley may even wear a tux this year. We'd love to see that.

In the meantime, she's gearing up for the second leg of her Storyteller Tour, which kicks off in Alaska on August 31.
