Kelsea Ballerini Loses Two Grandparents In Two Days

Kelsea Ballerini loses two grandparents in two days - King Says 2016Our thoughts and prayers are with Kelsea Ballerini who lost two of her grandparents in two days.

On Thursday, Ballerini shared a photo of her and her grandfather, captioning it,

“it was an emotional day yesterday losing my grandpa, but an honor to stand on stage with his last name and do what I love knowing he had the best seat in the house.”

Yesterday, she returned to Instagram to share the above picture, writing,

“Grandma joined grandad in heaven this morning. Married 62 years and only lived without each other 39 hours. That’s the kind of love we can all only pray to find and keep. Bittersweet few days losing them both, but smiling knowing they are together continuing their love story.”

That is the saddest, but also the most beautiful, love story I have ever heard.

CMT Releases First Trailer For Season 5 Of Nashville

First teaser trailer for season 5 of Nashville - King Says 2016CMT has just released the first official teaser trailer (below) for season 5 of ‘Nashville,’ and I don’t think I could be more excited. It looks so good!

A little sad that Luke Wheeler (Will Chase) is no longer on the show, but Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) and Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton) look absolutely stunning.

I heard that CMT is really going to focus on the music this season, so stay tuned for some mega hits.

Season 5 premieres with a two-hour special on the fifth day of January at nine o’clock Post Meridiem on CMT.

Maren Morris Announces 2017 Hero Tour

Maren Morris announces Hero tour - King Says 2016Maren Morris has announced details for her first headlining tour.

The Hero Tour will kick off at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, Massachusetts, on the third day of February 2017, with ten more dates through to the end of March.

Ummmm, I don’t see Nashville or London on the list, but I heard more dates will be added soon so I’m still hopeful.

Check out her spectacular performance of ‘80s Mercedes‘ on Ellen yesterday…

Three More New Faces Added To Season 5 Of ‘Nashville’

Bridgit Mendler to star in Nashville season 5 - King Says 2016CMT has announced three more new faces that will join the upcoming fifth season of ‘Nashville.’

Cameron Scoggins will play Zach Welles, a Rayna Jaymes superfan and Silicon Valley tech billionaire, up-and-coming actor Joseph David-Jones will play a character called Clay, who we don’t know much about yet, but the one that I’m actually excited about is Bridgit Mendler, the other cute one from ‘Undateable,’ who will play Ashley Wilkenson, an extremely talented, young, beautiful, self-assured and sometimes stubborn YouTube sensation working on her debut album.

I’m sure the new faces will bring a whole bunch of new drama to the show.

Season five will premiere on CMT with a two-hour special on the fifth day of January at nine o’clock Post Meridiem.

Gwen Stefani Returning For Season 12 Of The Voice

Gwen Stefani returning for season 12 of The Voice - King Says 2016Gwen Stefani will be back in the big red chair for season 12 of NBC’s ‘The Voice.’

Unfortunately, she will be taking over for Miley Cyrus, who will be sitting out for a season, but has already signed on the following one – season 13 – in the fall of 2017. I would much rather have had Alicia Keys be the one to leave, but you can’t have everything, I guess. At least King Blake Shelton and Adam Levine are staying put.

Season 12 will kick off in February 2017, but there is still a lot of season 11 to watch. Check out this awesome clip from last night’s episode.

King Luke Bryan And Little Big Town Partner Up For CMA Awards Promo

King Luke Bryan and Little Big Town partner up for CMA promo - King Says 2016The CMA has released a number of short promo clips of modern country’s finest coming together and singing classic country hits in celebration of the 50th CMA Awards, but my favourite – obviously – has to be the one with King Luke Bryan and Little Big Town (below) singing a mash up of Willie Nelson’s ‘On the Road Again’ and Alabama’s ‘Mountain Music.’

I say obviously because in case you hadn’t heard, I’m obsessed with King Luke Bryan! I really like the Queen Carrie Underwood one too, though.

King LB, Queen Carrie, LBT, and many more, will be performing at the event on the second day of November. It truly is going to be country music’s biggest night… Ever!
