Brantley Gilbert Opens Up About His Dad's New Earrings

Wednesday, 5:00 AM

Valory Music Co.Brantley Gilbert is one of the more colorful country stars today, and it sounds like he's cut from the same cloth as his father. Brantley recently had his dad move onto his farm in Alabama, and Brantley says the state is "rubbin' off on him, slowly but surely."

The move has caused Brantley's dad to expand his views on guys wearing earrings, too.

"I thought he was gonna kill me when I got my ears pierced," Brantley admits, "and he called me one night and he said, 'You ain’t gonna believe this.' I said, 'I think you’re right, but go ahead, shoot.' He said, 'I’m just gonna send you a picture.' I said, 'All right.'"

Brantley was quite shocked when the picture of his dad came through.

Says Brantley, "He got his ears pierced, but they’re studs."

Country stars like Brantley and Jason Aldean are known for wearing little hoop earrings, but studs are usually associated with rap acts. You shouldn't have to worry about Brantley featuring his dad on a new song, though.

Brantley says with a laugh, "He’s not gonna break out mad beats or nothing."

Next up, Brantley joins Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean for a show this Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium in St. Louis.

Miranda Lambert Shares Songs with Songwriter Friends and ...

Tuesday, 10:32 PM

Sony Music NashvilleMiranda Lambert performed with her songwriter friends and her favorite up-and-coming female acts Tuesday night at Nashville's 3rd and Lindsley. The sold-out show was set up as a songwriter round, which meant Miranda sat on the stage with her special guests throughout the night.

Miranda admitted she was nervous as the show got started with her performance of "Bathroom Sink," a song about facing self-rejection from her latest album, Platinum.  She also mentioned that she had been writing a lot this past week with her fellow songwriters onstage, including Jessi Alexander, Natalie Hemby, Luke Laird and Jon Randall. That means you can expect to hear Miranda's emotions following her divorce from Blake Shelton show up on her next album.

Speaking of Blake, his music was played over the speakers for a solid hour before the show started. When it came time for Miranda's second song of the night, she admitted she was getting by on a lot of caffeine and sad songs these days. In keeping with that sad song theme, Miranda launched into the cheating song, "Dear Diamond," which she recorded a few years back with Patty Loveless. Miranda wore a sparkly Patty Loveless tour T-shirt throughout the night.

 

Just another Sunday in the South. @mirandalambert and friends.

Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild made a special appearance to sing with Miranda on her latest single, "Smokin' and Drinkin'." Karen also sang "Pontoon" for the audience and returned to the stage at the end of the night to trade vocals with Miranda on "Girl Crush."

The other writers onstage mostly sang hits they had written for other acts with Miranda singing backup. Jessi Alexander sang two hits she'd written for Blake -- "Drink on It" and "Mine Would Be You." Natalie Hemby sang lead vocals on the songs she's written with or for Miranda, including "Baggage Claim," "White Liar" and "Virginia Bluebell," which is a song of hope Miranda says she's been listening to a lot in the past week.

Newcomers RaeLynn, Clare Dunn and Courtney Cole all performed their new songs. Miranda will take all three of those acts on the road this fall.
