Music City Minute: Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, RaeLynn, & Sugarland

There’s always rumors about Blake Shelton but this one scares me, he hinted that he might be retiring soon! It all started when Blake tweeted that he was watching the life story of famed football coach Bruce Arians, Blake tweeted, “Damn proud" to call Arians his friend, telling the coach, "Enjoy your retirement!!! I'll be joining you REAL soon brother!!!" While many took the tweet as a possible sign that Blake is hanging his cowboy hat up soon, we did some digging and that would be highly unlikely because he just signed a deal with Warner Music Nashville, basically proving he’s still committed to making music with his long time label. So Blake fans can rest easy! 


If you’re a fan of Chris Stapleton and Justin Timberlake this might be the best news you’ll hear all day. Chris just announced he’ll be one of Justin’s collaborators on his forthcoming album, Man of the Woods. While no specific details about Chris and Justin's collaboration have been revealed, a press release did say that Justin’s new album will also feature duets with Alicia Keyes, the Neptunes and Timbaland. This will be Chris’s first official recording with Justin, as well as their much-anticipated reunion following a huge performance at the 2015 CMA Awards. Justin's new album will be released on February 2.


A couple days ago we told you about RaeLynn’s dog Dolly running away New Year’s night due to loud fireworks. Well, after several days of being lost in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area in Tennessee, her dog has finally been found! RaeLynn shared the exciting news on social media yesterday, and posted a picture of the group of people she called her "heroes" who found her. 

RaeLynn said the group didn't want the $5,000 reward that was offered, saying they were just searching for Dolly out of the kindness of their hearts. RaeLynn then wrote, "The first of many miracles in 2018. Dolly survived 3 nights in single digit weather. She is a fighter. Mommy is on her way baby."


By now we all are well aware Sugarland is making a comeback! They teased it on the CMA Awards, and they had an amazing performance New Year's Eve, well now Sugarland has taken to Twitter to reveal the first details about their upcoming tour! The "Still the Same Tour" will make stops in more than 40 cities, right now the only Texas stop is in Sugarland, which obviously is fitting. 

The dates for the tour have yet to be announced, however, fans can sign up for the email newsletter for first dibs at tickets. The fan pre-sale begins Tuesday. If you haven’t heard their new single yet, it’s called “Still the Same” and it’s just like they picked up where they left off.
