Kacey Musgraves Weds Ruston Kelly

Yesterday, Kacey Musgraves became Mrs Kelly 10 months after Ruston Kelly proposed on Christmas Eve. The couple both took to social media yesterday confirming it was their big day with Kelly saying he’d ‘finally found the real thing’. Too sweet!!!

While we’re impatiently respectfully waiting for wedding dress pictures – who isn’t dying to see what Musgraves chose – there have been a few snaps shared. Songwriter and good friend of the happy couple, Shane McAnally posted adorable pictures of his sweet babies at the wedding with his son as a ring bearer and daughter, a ‘glitter girl’.

The morning after, Musgraves has posted a picture of her bouquet, describing her wedding as ‘the most unbelievably magical night’. We expect no less from our favourite dime store cowgirl.

The sweet morning after the most unbelievably magical night. Wish I could live in yesterday forever.

Wishing so much love and happiness to the new Mr and Mrs Kelly forever and ever.

Chris Stapleton’s Big Announcement

Woke up to the best news this morning, during the first of his two sold out shows in Nashville this weekend, Stapleton shared the exciting news that From A Room: Volume 2 would be released on December 1st. For someone still playing Volume 1 on repeat, and choosing a new favourite every week this is HUGE news, I had no idea it would be so soon.

From A Room: Volume 2. December 1.

Let’s hope there will be a few pre-release tracks before December 1st, as I can barely wait.

 

Day of the Girl 

While I understand that the issue of gender equality, and the need for an ‘International Day of the Girl Child’ is far bigger than country music, we have to start somewhere. Women in country have been a minority for a while now in terms of recognition. You could probably think of plenty of amazing female country artists… Continue reading “Day of the Girl “

Why The C2C Line Up Is Nearly Perfection

The line up for C2C 2018 has been announced on stage at the Shepherds Bush Empire tonight by Whispering Bob Harris.

Headlining across the 3 days are Kacey Musgraves, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill and Little Big Town. Kelsey Ballerini, Luke Combs, Kip Moore, Midland and Margo Price are also set to perform on the main stage at some point Friday-Sunday. There have been very mixed reactions following this announcement, with many saying Kacey Musgraves isn’t headline material and that Little Big Town performed a few years ago and therefore shouldn’t appear again. Okay so here’s my take on it… Continue reading “Why The C2C Line Up Is Nearly Perfection”

Williams died Friday morning following a short illness, while Gentry passed away as a result of a helicopter crash en route to show in Medford, New Jersey.

Country artists reacted to this news on social media with tributes and solidarity. Some saw Williams and Gentry as Continue reading “Country Reacts to the Loss of Two Greats”
