Miranda Lambert hasn’t put any new music out since she her double album, The Weight of These Wings, in 2016. That’s about to change.

She tells ET, “I took a good break and I got to live life and just be a person for a while. Just being off the road, I took my time writing and enjoyed it instead of rushing like we always do.”

During CMA Fest, Miranda debuted a new song, “Locomotive.”

Thomas Rhett’s Center Point Road tops Billboard‘s all-genre Top 200 Albums chart.

His second consecutive album to do that makes him the first country artist to accomplish the feat this year.

With more than 33 million streams of the songs on the album, Center Point Road had the biggest streaming debut week for a country album.

Thomas says, “The reception for this new music has been mind-blowing from the start. In these last two years of life, a lot has happened that gave me a lot to write about. When I didn’t think I could get more personal, I did…. …Huge shout out to the fans for listening to it and supporting every release along the way. It has been such a whirlwind, for the album to finally be out and to see this kind of response is just mind-blowing.”

Thomas raised over $100,000 dollars for music education through the CMA Foundation at his listening event in Nashville on Saturday.

Midland have booked a headlining tour ahead of the release of their second full-length album, Let It Roll.  

The tour launches in New York City on September 17th and wraps on November 9th in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Tickets to on sale Friday.

Let it Roll comes out on August 23rd.

Congratulations to Randy Houser and his wife Tatiana. The couple welcomed their son Huckleberry Randolph Houser into the world on Sunday.

Randy tells People, “He’s handsome, healthy and happy, and we couldn’t be more excited to get him home and start the next chapter of our lives together with him.”

Randy has another son, seven-year-old West, from his previous marriage.

Kelsea Ballerini’s number-one hit “Miss Me More” has hit especially close to home with those who’ve been through the end of a relationship — so, basically everybody.

Kelsea says the song was born from a bad break-up.

Kelsea is out this summer on the fair and festival circuit, and opening various dates on Luke Bryan’s Sunset Repeat tour.
