Music City Minute: Florida Georgia Line, Jennifer Nettles, Kane Brown, Blake Shelton, The Voice 

Florida Georgia Line is expanding their empire! A new FGL Boat House establishment is in the works in Florida. The guys shared a concept rendering of the future FGL Boat House on Instagram yesterday along with a caption saying, "Anyone else think an FGL Boat House needs to happen in Florida?! Welp, maybe it is." The picture shows a large, multi-level venue that's overlooking a spacious pool and deck area. It looks like a place you could go to relax and enjoy a cold drink.

The guys didn't say which part of the state FGL Boat House would be located in, but an eagle eye look at the Instagram video seems to place it somewhere along the Florida Panhandle near the scenic Highway 30A and Choctawhatchee Bay, kind of near the Destin area. 

Then in a separate video, Brian Kelley turned the camera on himself and said:

Brian Kelley: "I guess maybe BK maybe had a couple drinks at lunch and decided to maybe spill some beans about, you know, an FGL Boat House. Maybe that happens."

 

Jennifer Nettles from Sugarland gave a commencement speech at her alma mater, Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia over the weekend.

She admitted to being nervous, which is ironic considering she performs for a living. She also joked about pulling all-nighters and being "over-served" when she was a student.

Agnes Scott is a women's college so most of her comments were, obviously, meant to inspire the next generation of females. 

She said, "I want you to be fearless dream warriors. I want you to be the boss ladies of your own lives. I want you to live authentically in your truth. I want you to be so in touch with your truth that nothing can pull you off of your path."

She talked about overcoming discrimination, "I want you to be clear and to know that it will be harder for you as a woman to do it all… to have a dream and a job and a relationship and a family.\

"And if you are a woman of color, it will be even harder. I want you to be fierce for yourselves then and for each other, and fight to change all of that."

And she told the graduates to never, ever settle, "I want you to be curious women. Let your favorite questions be 'What if?' and 'Why not?' Instead of 'Why me?' Why not ask, 'Why NOT me?'

"Somebody has to live her best life, achieve her goals, find love and fulfill all her dreams. Might as well be you, right? That's how I look at it. Might as well be me. Might as well be you. [It] should be you living her best life and fulfilling her dreams."

 (The part about being "over-served" comes at 4:10. The "fearless dream warriors" is at 6:00. Fighting "discrimination" is at 7:30. And she urges them to be "curious women" at 15:46.)

 

Last night eight contestants before four on The Voice but first before we found out if San Antonio girl Spensha Baker made it to the finale we got to see some performances! Kane Brown performed his song “Heaven”:

Blake Shelton performed “I Lived It”:

 

When we got to the actual results, Spensha Baker, Brynn Cartelli, and Kyla Jake were granted a place in the finale, and then Pryor Baird, Kaleb Lee, and Britton Buchanan, had to basically do a sing off for one last chance to return to the stage on next Monday night. When it got down to it, Britton was saved! 

This is great news for us! Our San Antonio girl Spensha Baker moves on to the finale next week and we’ll continue to cheer her on Monday at 7!
