Luke Combs Is Engaged And Here Is The Ring....

Luke Combs is engaged to be married, and boy, did he make sure to put a ring on it. The singer's fiancée, Nicole Hocking, shared a first-glimpse photo of her diamond on social media Thursday—and it's a beauty.

Combs chose an elegantly simple (and large) emerald-cut stone, which would look perfectly classic in any era. And, impressively, it seems he selected this himself, without any input from his bride-to-be. As Hocking explains, "I always said if I was to ever get married, I didn't want to pick out the ring or go ring shopping. I wanted it to be something that when he saw it, he knew that it was the one."

Thomas Rhett and Family Visit 'Sesame Street'

Thomas Rhett and his adorable family of four (wife Lauren and daughters Willa Gray and Ada James) are always up to something fun. And it looks as though the family is kicking off December with an extra fun experience—taking the girls to visit the iconic and lovable Muppet cast of Sesame Street.

"We got to go to Sesame Street," posted Lauren, sharing a variety of photos of the day. Swipe to see all the cuteness. Although Willa Gray apparently termed Muppet Abby her "best friend," there's still a pretty darn amazing photo of her sharing a cookie with...wait for it, yes...Cookie Monster himself!

Kelly Clarkson Meets Cher For First Time, and It's the Cutest Ever [Watch]

Kelly Clarkson has her share of adorable moments floating around the Internet, but probably at least in her Top Three (okay, maybe two?) has to be her latest, in which she flips out during a red-carpet interview at the realization that none other than the iconic Cher is in her radar.

Clarkson was doing the carpet rounds at the Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday (Dec. 2) in Washington, D.C., when she stopped to give an interview to Extra. Things took a bit of a turn when the singer recognized another famous voice in the near vicinity.

William Michael Morgan Quit Drinking After Breakup From Jennifer Wayne

William Michael Morgan and Runaway June's Jennifer Wayne broke off their engagement in April 2017, and in the days that followed, Morgan found himself spiraling out of control when it came to drinking.

"I woke up and I felt like crap and I just kinda sat there for a minute and I realized everything that was going on in my life at that time," Morgan recalls in a new interview with People. "And I said, if I want something to happen … I've got to be the one to do something about it, because it's my life."

Maren Morris Gets Fans Whipped Up With Cryptic Baby-Making Post

Maren Morris has been frank about the fact that she and husband Ryan Hurd have fairly imminent family planning on the mind (in August, she tweeted that she has baby plans "blocked out on my calendar next year"). However, she startled fans on Saturday (Dec. 1) with what seemed to be a nudge-wink post alluding to a possible pregnancy.

Morris shared a photo of herself and Hurd in Paris smiling for the camera, with the caption, "Gonna have your babies" and a heart emoji.

Chaos immediately ensued, with fans demanding in all caps "Is SHE PREGNANT?" and "IS THIS AN ANNOUNCEMENT?" Cooler-headed viewers asked calmly, "Wait, what?" and "Is there something you'd like to share with the class?"

Shania Twain Isn't Pleased About the Current State of Country Music

Shania Twain is bored with country music right now. "We have too much of the sameness," she says in an interview with E! News.

Twain — who's currently judging a new reality singing competition called Real Country —agrees with those who are upset by the lack of female voices on country radio. "We are not making radio progress. But we are making very small, steady steps towards awareness that we're lacking women on country radio. So more women are speaking out," she says.

Dustin Lynch Does Get Fan Mail in His Grand Ole Opry Mailbox

Dustin Lynch is the newest member inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, and in a recent interview with Taste of Country, the "Good Girl" singer shared some of the things he has learned since being asked to join the coveted club.

He admits that one thing that surprised him was the weight that comes with becoming a member, and not realizing that the world truly cares about the esteemed honor.

"I like to say it every night I can in my show, and people cheer like it's the greatest thing ever 'cause it is the greatest thing ever," he stresses. "It's the top of the mountain for me.

Florida Georgia Line's Wives Star in 'Talk You Out of It' Vid

Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line both have beautiful wives, which they show off to quite sultry effect in their latest video for single "Talk You Out of It." Instead of hiring models or actresses to enhance the storyline of a guy who decides that maybe he'd rather stay in with his sexy significant other than hit the town, the duo recruited Brittney Kelley and Hayley Hubbard to play the parts.

The result is undeniably steamy, displaying the authentic chemistry both couples have. And, while not exactly NSFW material, the visuals do flirt with at least a PG-13 rating. Brittney lounges, wet and seductive in a flower-filled bathtub, while Brian looks on approvingly. Meanwhile, a shirtless Tyler engages in a makeout session with Hayley. Phew...is it getting a little hot in here?

See the Worst Dressed at the 2018 CMA Awards

The worst-dressed stars at the 2018 CMA Awards were, as usual, few and far between. But there is always an ensemble or two that — while we admire the effort — ends up being a swing and a miss. Unfortunately, bad fashion doesn't discriminate between genders; we had a few missteps on both sides this year.

And honestly, we get it. Who doesn't want to wear pajamas to an award show? Who among us hasn't considered a questionably bold print in a particularly vulnerable moment? But whether it's just an unflattering fit, an artistic choice gone wrong or simply a "what were they thinking?" moment, these stars graced the red carpet on country's biggest night wearing outfits that simply were not their best. Serial hitmakers and red carpet newcomers alike appear on this list — none of them immune to the draw of the memorable look on their stylist's vision board. But that doesn't mean we love them any less. We just would rather not stand next to them on this particular night ...

Carrie Underwood's Son Isaiah Wants His Mom All to Himself

By now, everyone knows that Carrie Underwood has a baby on the way—and "everyone" includes her firstborn, Isaiah, who is 3 and a half and not quite sure about this new-baby business. In fact, he might be called even a tad bit jealous of the new addition, before he or she even arrives.

As Underwood tells People, Isaiah has everything already worked out in his head regarding the dynamics surrounding his new sibling. "[He] told me recently that when the new baby comes that Daddy could have that baby and then he could be mine,” the singer relates.

Luke Bryan Set to Open 2018 CMA Awards With Performance, Special Guests

The 2018 Country Music Awards will kick off with a bang Wednesday (Nov. 14) when two-time Entertainer of the Year veteran Luke Bryan opens up the show performing his current single, “What Makes You Country.”

While that in and of itself is a treat for any country music lover, it gets even better—Bryan announced on Monday (Nov. 12) that he will be accompanied by a slate of rising stars, comprising the many styles that encompass country music as a whole.

Wondering just who these special guests might be? Bryan isn't about to spoil the surprise, but he does have some enticing words about it: “When we began talking about this performance I thought this would be a perfect time to share the stage with a few deserving artists who may not otherwise have an opportunity to be a part of the show,” he says.

Kane Brown and Wife Getting Pressure to Make Babies From an Unlikely Source

Kane Brown and his wife, Katelyn Jae, haven't even passed the one-month anniversary of their Oct. 12 wedding yet—but, as might be expected, the newlyweds are already getting the expected question: "When are you going to have a baby?"

That's a question one wouldn't be surprised to field from grandparents and aunties, but in Mr. and Mrs. Brown's case, the query came from an unexpected (and un-related) source. "Jason and Brittany [Aldean]," admits Brown, in an interview with Taste of Country.

Teepee at Florida Georgia Line Singer's Retail Store Vandalized

Florida Georgia Line singer Brian Kelley and his wife own the Nashville-area store Tribe Kelley Trading Post, which offers clothes, jewelry, and home goods. They also own a good surveillance system, which came in handy Nov. 3, when a group of vandals tried to take down a teepee that resides in front of the shop.

Now, Kelley is offering $5000 for any valid information regarding the vandals, who were caught on camera disassembling and trying to make off with the structure around 1:30 a.m.that night. Kelley's post above contains several videos (swipe right) that clearly show the perpetrators, including one in which a lone vandal is left to deal with breaking down the teepee poles.
