After setting a first-week streaming record with his newest single, “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” — 11-million — Luke Combs will release a new collection of music on June 7th.

The Prequel is a five-song EP that includes the new single, along with four other songs Luke penned with hit songwriters like Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana, who co-wrote “Beer Never Broke My Heart.”

This is Luke’s first release since his 2017 double-platinum album This One’s for You, which produced five number-ones, including his debut single, “Hurricane.”

Luke’s incredibly successful Beer Never Broke My Heart tour continues to sell out shows and extends into December.

Keith Urban has been announced as the curator for a show honoring the late Don Williams.

Don Williams: Music and Memories of the Gentle Giant will take place at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center for three nights starting October 31st. The show includes historical video performances by Don, along with guest singers accompanied by his touring band and the Nashville Symphony.

Keith says, “Don Williams and his music are strong threads in the tapestry of my life. There is no better way to celebrate him and his legacy than reliving those moments, and I’m honored to be part of continuing to share his story and music.”

Tickets go on sale at Ticketmaster on May 27th.

This is shaping up to be a big year for Jon Pardi. With a new album on the way, and a headlining tour to follow, it makes sense that the first single from his new collection would be a tune to get boots on the dance floor.

Eric Paslay, who lives with Type 1 diabetes, is reaching beyond his musical ability to host the new podcast, Level With Me, giving others with T1D a platform and community to discuss their struggles and successes.

The weekly show will feature Eric visiting others who have T1D in their hometowns where listeners will get a better understanding of day-to-day life with the condition. They will also discuss each individual’s unique journey with diabetes and how they cope with challenges.

The first episode is available now and follows Eric to Pickerington, Ohio where he meets Colleen Rinehart — a wife, mother of two boys, nurse, nutrition enthusiast and marathon runner. Additional episodes feature an 11-year-old who manages her own condition, a mother- and daughter who were both diagnosed, and Eric’s wife, Natalie Paslay, who discusses his diabetes and monitoring from the road.
