As a church kid, I felt I had arrived when I got my first personalized Bible. It was a pocket bible with my name stamped in gold across the oxblood leather that I used until the cover fell off. A large part of that was because I realized the Bible wasn't a story about someone else, but God's story for me about Himself. That is the message of a new children's book called "Jesus Loves" that will print your child's name right on the cover and address them personally in over 40 places through stories and lessons.
Lindsey Partridge, also known as the Canadian horse whisperer, was checking into a Kentucky motel when she heard the woman in front of her ask about a pet policy. It was normal for small pets to share a room in the Super 8, but Partridge wanted to see how far the policy would go. When she asked if the policy would cover her horse, the woman behind the desk said, "Aw, I wouldn't mind. You could do that." So Partridge went to her trailer and brought her retired thoroughbred racing horse Blizz into the lobby.
We already knew Chris Pratt was a big fan of Chris Stapleton. We have seen his musical chops on "Parks and Recreation" as Andy, the lead singer of the band "Mouse Rat." But we never imagined we would see Chris Pratt singing "Tennessee Whiskey" onstage while wearing a jean jacket with Chris Stapleton's face on it.
As the 2017 NASCAR season comes to a close so also does the storied racing career of Dale Earnhardt Jr. After a lingering concussion last season, Earnhardt made the decision to take one final lap before stepping out from behind the wheel.

I don't know if everything is bigger in Texas, but everything there sure is unique.
A south Texas man who worked for a juvenile detention center was arrested after it was discovered he had been stealing regular deliveries of fajitas and selling them. Over a period of nine years the man stole over the equivalent of $1.2 million in fajitas. This long-term scheme of grand theft fajita is the most Texan crime I can imagine. All it was really missing was a horse chase and stand off at high noon.
[Watch] Chris Stapleton Announces The Release Of 'From A Room Vol. 2' To A Sold Out Crowd In Nashville

Jimmy Fallon is the nice guy of late night TV. He isn't someone who will turn a fun conversation into a "gotcha" policy debate. Even so, Fallon was roundly criticized for an interview he did with then-candidate Donald Trump in which he tousled Trump's hairs and asked no pressing questions. In a recent interview with "TODAY Show" Fallon again felt like he needed to defend himself: anti-Trump comedy is not something he is interested in.
We talk about what it was like inside the country music industry in the ten days since the Las Vegas shooting. Then, Drew went to Jason Aldean's first show back and was surprised by what he found.
[Exclusive] Jason Aldean's First Show Since The Las Vegas Shooting Was Exactly What Country Music Needed
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous. Eleven days the deadliest mass shooting in American history, eleven days of mourning and confusion, and there I was, standing outside the Bank of Oklahoma Center in Tulsa with a ticket to see Jason Aldean. I thought how I felt would be common, but I was incredibly wrong. It seemed that I was the only person who wasn't there just to cut loose, drink a few beers, forget about my daily problems for a moment, and refuse to let terrorists keep me from living.
"We're gonna give you the show the people in Las Vegas came to see and didn't get to," Jason Aldean said once he took the stage. And that's exactly what he did.
