Little Big Town has achieved their second #1 song this week with the title track from their Tornado album. The band had a lot of fun recording the whistles on “Tornado” using the recording studio’s echo chamber. Kimberly jokes that she and Jimmy got in there and whistled a little...then giggled a lot! “Tornado” follows their first chart-topper, “Pontoon” which stayed at #1 for two weeks in a row.
Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Trace Adkins are just a few country artists to hit the set of a reality TV show…but don’t expect to see Jerrod Niemann on the small screen anytime soon. Jerrod used to date ex-Bachelorette, Emily Maynard. While he says he's a consumer of some of the reality television shows out there...he just doesn't see himself doing a show like that - unless the show was about beer chugging!

Luke Bryan kicks off two-days of concerts in Panama City, Florida today. His annual Spinnaker Beach Club shows are a highlight for spring breakers down south and it reminds Luke of his favorite moments on the beach – and – his not so favorite moments on the beach! Luke remembers that one year he and his buddies jumped into the water the first night they were there. As a result...they all got sick and stayed in bed for several days of their vacation. Last year Luke’s shows brought around 45,000 fans to the beach.
