Brittany and Jason Aldean's Maternity Pics are the Sweetest

Brittany and Jason Aldean are all set to welcome baby boy Memphis any day now and the couple recently shared a few maternity pics for the world to collectively say, "aww" over. Also, we love seeing Jason without his cowboy hat on. Is that weird?

Memphis Aldine Williams is expected to make his debut in December and judging by how much his mom and dad love each other, he's going to be covered in love the second he arrives. He's also got a pretty cool room to come home to, too.

A few weeks ago, Jason shared how the couple came up with the unique name, "I've kinda been infatuated with Elvis since I was a kid, just always watching documentaries and stuff on him. It had a little bit to do with that and, honestly, I just wanted him to have something that wasn't very common. I'm sure he's gonna meet people with the name Memphis—he won't be the only one, but, you know, at least I think it's unique enough where . . . it won't be like Michael or John or, you know, Jason. And that was kinda what we were going for."

Just look at these photos!

Tim McGraw Scared The Daylights Out of Faith Hill When She Was Eight Months Pregnant and She Punched Him

It's release day for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. The award-winning couple is making the rounds in New York to promote their first-ever duets album, "The Rest of Our Life."

While at the "Today" show, Tim and Faith performed a few songs during the concert series, including "Telluride," and the album's title track. They also sat down with Hoda Kotb and guest-host Ryan Eggold to discuss life on the road and their upcoming Showtime special, "Tim & Faith: Soul2Soul," which airs tonight (Nov. 17).

Ryan asked the couple if any pranks occurred between them when out on the road. Faith had a story of a prank, but it occurred at home, not on the road.

"I do not like scary moves at all," Faith said. "We watch scary movies sometimes because our girls want to, and he scares me in the house.

"I like to hide in the hallways," Tim says.

"It is beyond, more than evil. When I was pregnant with Gracie our first daughter," Faith continued.

Tim, who knew which story she was going to tell interjected saying, "This almost made the marriage end."

"You were almost dead," Faith assured him. "He hid underneath the bed and I went to get into the bed and he grabbed my ankles. I was eight months pregnant. I should've just gone like bam and let it all go. That was too much."

"She hit me," Tim responded. "She punched me. She's got a good right hook too, I'll tell ya."

Deservedly so Tim, deservedly so.

You can hear Faith's scare story at the 2:30 mark in the video.

Luke Bryan Said Blake Shelton is Sending Everyone Texts That Just Say "Sexy"

Luke Bryan is "happy" for his buddy Blake Shelton, after he was named People's Sexiest Man Alive. Kind of. Mostly, he feels bad that he may have started the online roasting of Blake and he also loves that Blake is a different kind of sexy.

Luke and his fellow "American Idol" judges caught up with "Access Hollywood" to discuss Blake's sexiness and the interview went off the rails pretty quickly.

"I hear my phone go off and I look over and it's from Blake and it just says, 'sexy' on it. And he's doing that to everyone," Luke shared.

Yes, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's First Ever Duets Album Passes the Drivin' Around Town Test
