Gary Allan Taps into His Rockabilly Past for New Single, "Hangover Tonight"

Image Courtesy MCA NashvilleGary Allan's new single, "Hangover Tonight," finds him exploring a '50s and '60s-inspired sound, which is a very comfortable place for the singer. Gary tapped into his own musical history to co-write the song with Chris Stapleton and two other young Nashville hitmakers.

Gary says, "I was in rockabilly bands my whole life, and to me it was just a throwback to my youth writing with these guys.  It was a lot of fun.”

"Hangover Tonight" is the lead single from Gary's new studio album, due out later this year.

Chase Bryant Earning a Reputation as Country Music's Best New Chef

Image Courtesy Broken Bow Label GroupChase Bryant is a triple-threat when it comes to singing, writing and performing guitar on all his songs. His creativity doesn't stop when he leaves the stage, though. Chase is fast becoming one of country music's best chefs, too. He's mastered Italian, Mexican and steak dishes in the past few years, but Chase's specialty is still his grandmother's fried chicken recipe.

Chase tells ABC Radio, "I like to make it like my grandma used to. Put it in a brown bag and shake it up and then toss it in the fryer and go to town."

Lately, Chase has been drawing culinary inspiration from TV cooking shows like Chopped and Top Chef, and the results are pretty out there.

"I'm taking, like, wacky ideas like making these crazy sauces out of, like, cotton candy and different stuff," Chase explains. "It's crazy, but it's really cool. I'm just way into it."

Getting creative in the kitchen ultimately helps recharge Chase's batteries when it's time to make music again.

He says, "It's a way to be creative in another way and kind of get away from the music for a minute and just kind of give it a break. So, that's really cool. "

Chase is currently on the road with his Take It On Back tour. He'll join Tim McGraw's Shotgun Rider tour starting in May.

Randy Houser Creating Magic Moments Opening for Luke Bryan This Year

Image Courtesy Stoney Creek RecordsRandy Houser just wrapped up his first run of shows opening for Luke Bryan, and performing on Luke's massive stage is requiring some adjustment for Randy.

He tells ABC Radio, "It is amazing all the real estate that's out there. The big stage. There's a lot of ground to cover."

On some tours, Randy would be restricted to performing on a small portion of the stage, but Luke has given Randy the freedom to use the entire stage and all his video screens to create the best show possible.

"He's so gracious," Randy says of Luke. "Gives us access to all the production and everything. It's just really neat. We've had a blast."

Even though Randy is entertaining the largest audiences of his career, he still tries to create intimate moments during his concerts. He pulled that off recently by playing his latest hit, "Like a Cowboy," backed up by a single acoustic guitar.

Randy says of that performance, "It was such an amazing thing to hear people really singing with me on it. It was, I don't know, a really unexplainable feeling. Really, one of the best experiences I've ever had playing music."

"Like a Cowboy" is the latest single from Randy's current album, How Country Feels.

Frankie Ballard Rocks Madison Square Garden with Florida Georgia Line

Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleAfter playing for a sold-out crowd of 13,000 last week with Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett at New York City's Madison Square Garden, Frankie Ballard says it’s pretty cool to play a venue where you can actually rock the house.

“The one thing I learned about that place is that it’s hanging from the fifth floor. It’s actually suspended in the air,” Frankie says, showing off his knowledge of the building.

“There’s a giant hub above the scoreboard and bridge cables that are anchored around the circles and it’s actually floating and there’s like an inch of tolerance all the way around the outside, so the engineers wanted the house to actually rock, and it will," he says. "You can feel it moving. Sometimes it feels like an earthquake in there because it’s actually swinging in the air.”

He discovered one thing that’s not necessarily so easy, though, is trying to park a tour bus in New York City.

“Honestly it’s kind of hectic, cause there’s not a lot of places to park…  We were like, ‘Well we’re on the show,’ and they were like, ‘Well we don’t really care,’ you know. So we were gonna shuttle in from Jersey or something. Then at the last minute, they were like, 'OK we’ve got a space,' so we actually got to park the bus down there, which was cool. But it’s right on the street,  you know there’s people walking everywhere. It’s exciting, you know there’s so much happening in the streets and you’re like ‘Wow! Madison Square Garden!’”

The “Young & Crazy” crooner reunites with the Anything Goes tour March 21 in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Eric Paslay Enjoys "Double Number Ones" and Being Engaged

Image Courtesy UMGEric Paslay was set to be featured at Friday night’s prestigious New Faces Show at Nashville’s Country Radio Seminar, and on the occasion, Eric couldn’t help but look back on the journey that brought him there.

“I mean really, the last two years, I recorded this album over two years ago, which is crazy to think it’s been over two years.  But 'Friday Night' went number one just over a year ago, 'Song About a Girl' rocked it, I call it my double number one,” he jokes. “It went eleven on the charts. I’ve had five number ones and a double number one.”

And while Eric’s current hit, “She Don’t Love You,” may be a heartbreak song, he confesses he’s happy that's not his case in real life.

“I’m honored to get to sing a song like that on country radio and that it’s doing so well for everybody,” he reflects. “Yeah, it’s great. I’m glad I’ve got a fiancée to get to share the parties with!”

Brad Paisley Sends His Condolences to William Shatner

Image Courtesy Arista NashvilleBrad Paisley is one of the many celebrities reaching out to his friend William Shatner after the death of his Star Trek co-star Leonard Nimoy

“Thoughts &prayers with @WilliamShatner today. Sorry for your loss buddy. What a friendship you & Leonard had,” Brad tweeted, including a photo of the two during their Star Trek heyday. Nimoy, best known for playing Mr. Spock, passed away Friday morning. 

Brad and Shatner first combined their comedic talents in 2003, when the man who played Captain Kirk appeared in the video for “Celebrity.” Four years later, he also guested in the clip for “Online.” The “Crushin’ It” hitmaker returned the favor, contributing to Shatner’s 2011 album, and even making a guest appearance in his Broadway show Shatner’s World:  We Just Live In It the following year.

On his official Facebook page, Shatner said of Nimoy: "I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love."  The two remained close friends throughout their lives, with Shatner commenting that he and Nimoy became even closer following  the 1999 death of Shatner's third wife. Nimoy was 83.

Josh Turner Competes in CrossFit Open

Image Courtesy MCA NashvilleYou can now add CrossFit competitor to Josh Turner’s list of accomplishments.  The “Lay Low” hitmaker first became interested in the sport that combines aerobics, gymnastics and weight lifting after seeing CrossFit Champion Rich Froning on the cover of Muscle & Fitness, and then running into him in the Nashville airport.

“He casually asked if I had ever tried CrossFit and I told him no, so he invited me out to his [gym] and I took him up on it,” Josh recalls. “The first workout he put me through had me coughing my lungs up for hours, but it didn’t deter me.”

Two years later, Josh is following in the four-time champion’s footsteps and entering a CrossFit competition of his own. On Thursday, he traveled to Boston to support his friend in the Reebok CrossFit Games, before finishing his first competition workout on Friday.

“I never dreamed I would be competing in a CrossFit Open! I’m looking forward to it, but I’m scared to death because I’m far from being an expert at CrossFit,” he says. You can keep up with Josh’s progress on the CrossFit website.
