Music City Minute: Luke Combs, Kelsea Ballerini, Taylor Swift, Jake Owen, Kid Rock 

Sad news about Luke Combs! He lost his voice while performing at CMA Fest on Friday… so he's been put on vocal rest. He canceled his shows over the weekend, plus his concerts this Thursday in Grand Junction, Colorado and Friday in Comstock, Nebraska.

He hit up Instagram with the news and said, "I saw my doctors and we've got a plan of vocal rest and treatments [so] I can be back with y'all as quickly as possible. It kills me to [have to] do this. Y'all are the reason I get on stage every night."

These days it seems like Taylor Swift gets on the country charts by giving her songs to other artists. The two recent ones being Little Big Town’s “Better Man” and Sugarland’s “Babe”.

Kelsea Ballerini and Taylor Swift are actually close friends,but Kelsea says she wouldn’t record a Taylor song.

Kelsea said, "I think I'll always cut my own stuff. It's part of who I am as an artist. As much as I think she's incredible. I would love to write WITH her, though." 

Happy tour kickoff to my friend that is equally as inviting, warm, and entertaining drinking wine on the couch as she is on stage. That being said, I can't wait to come fangirl and get inspired. Potentially with a sign. Potentially also with some kind of snake apparel. Go get em, sister.

Most people ARE good and Jake Owen learned that over the weekend. A fan named Todd posted some very nice things about him and he greatly appreciated it. Jake hit up Instagram with a heartfelt response:

Hey @todd_wages ... I hope I can express to you how much your comment means to me. One of these days I hope I can drink some of those beers, at one of those cookouts you speak of. All I've ever wanted to do is just make people happy. Trust me, I've made people unhappy, and to be honest I've been unhappy before. I've chalked that up to being a human and living life. Learning from life. I've never had an absolute understanding as to why I am able to sings songs and travel around this beautiful country. I've chalked that up to God's plan. Even still, It's never made perfect sense to me. There are days when I wonder to myself if I'm doing enough. Am I working hard enough? Am I good Father? Am I a good friend? I do the self constructive criticism thing I think a lot of us do... then there are moments when someone gives you an incredible compliment.. like you just did Todd. I almost feel like you reached out and hugged me through this Insta message. I needed that! Todd you are always welcome at any show of mine. It's people like you that make everything I do feel so surreal. So fulfilling. You say that I make your day a little better?!?! Buddy, you and so many others out there are the ones making my day better as well! Thanks for being so kind and taking the time to give me a compliment. I think if everyone gave someone a compliment each day, the world would be a happier place.

Kid Rock is joining the list of musicians with bars in downtown Nashville, he’s actually partnering with Tootsie's honky-tonk to open a four-story entertainment venue and steakhouse on Lower Broadway. The venue will reportedly have a bar and stage on every floor as well as a rooftop deck. The name for the roughly $20 million bar and restaurant has yet to be announced, but the report says that the owners hope to open it in about one month. 
So far, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean, John Rich and Alan Jackson have opened bars in downtown Nashville. Here’s a picture of his restaurant in Detroit:
