Love is in the air for country star Trace Adkins and actress Victoria Pratt.

This Sunday, the “Ladies Love Country Boys” singer and the former “Xena: Warrior Princess” star tied the knot in New Orleans in a wedding officiated by none other than Adkins’ country cohort, Blake Shelton.

“Join us in congratulating Trace & Victoria!,” said the caption on Adkins’ official Instagram. The picture featured Pratt donning a white strapless wedding gown, while Adkins opted for classic country attire—sporting dark jeans, a blazer and a cowboy hat. Shelton is seen officiating the wedding while wearing a similar attire to that of Adkins, but opting for a pair of blue jeans instead.

Shelton is currently in a relationship with No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani, whom he met on the set of “The Voice.’ When speaking with Shape magazine, Stefani noted: “Having a best friend like Blake to help me do that has been one of the greatest gifts.”

Stefani and Shelton became a couple one year prior to Stefani’s divorce from Bush vocalist, Gavin Rossdale. “I feel as if I spent the last four years healing—you know, trying to build my life again,” Stefani stated about her relationship with Shelton following the tumultuous breakup with Rossdale.

Longtime drummer for country musician Kane Brown, Kenny Dixon, died on Saturday at age 27.

The band confirmed the news in a statement to USA Today Sunday that Dixon was killed in a car accident, but it’s unclear at this time where the incident took place.

“It is with profound sadness and disbelief that we confirm we lost our drummer Kenny this weekend in a tragic car accident,” the band’s statement reads. “Kenny was a member of our family from the very beginning and our hearts are with his (fiancée) Sarah, his son, and everyone who knew and loved him. He was truly one of the greatest and kindest people on and off stage we’ve ever known.”

KANE BROWN IS ‘SUPER EXCITED’ TO BE A FIRST-TIME FATHER: I GET TO ‘BE THE DAD I NEVER HAD TO MY DAUGHTER’

Representatives for Brown did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Brown himself took to Instagram shortly after the news broke to mourn the loss of his friend and bandmate.

“Love you so much dude!!! You started all of this with me from the start in 2015 when no body else believed we would make it out of Chattanooga playing for 500 people and your last show was in a Fn Stadium my guy,” Brown captioned a photo of him and Dixon on stage. “I know u will be watching over us with that red neck accent that we all love and you will never be replaced bro!!! I promise u that!!”

KANE BROWN DEDICATES HIS SONG ‘HOMESICK’ TO MILITARY FAMILIES

Dixon was set to marry fiancee Sarah Hendrick, with whom he shared 3-year-old son, Levi, on Nov. 30, according to People magazine. She too took to Instagram to express her sadness at the loss of the drummer.

“I’m at a loss of words. I don’t even know how to write this or ever thought I would have to. Kenny passed away last night in a car accident. I know I have to be strong for Levi and God is gonna pull us through this,” she captioned a series of images of their family. “We have a forever guardian angel watching above us now. Please keep Levi, my family, and Kenny’s family in your prayers.”

Jessie James Decker can’t keep her hands to herself.

The country singer gushed over her husband, former NFL player Eric Decker, in a new post on Instagram.

“He’s like fine wine,” the “Lights Down Low” singer captioned a photo of herself with her arms around her husband’s neck.

The 31-year-old shares 4-year-old daughter Vivianne, 3-year-old son Eric Jr. and son Forrest, 1, with husband Eric, 32.

The mom-of-three, who previously said she and Eric would “plan” nights – are now enjoying an unplanned sex life after Eric retired from football.

“[Eric’s] retired now, so we can be spontaneous!” she told Fox News in February.

“I would say never say never,” she admitted. “We’re not against it and we’re not planning it either. I think if it were to happen naturally, another baby is always a blessing, but as of right now we are very happy with baby Forrest.”

Garth Brooks admits things can get ‘intense’ with wife Trisha Yearwood after 14 years of marriage

After nearly 14 years of marriage, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are more in love than ever.

With that being said, even the longtime loves can get into heated discussions.

Brooks, 57, admitted in a new interview that things can get “intense” between the two.

‘SILICON VALLEY’ STAR THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: ‘SWINGING SAVED MY MARRIAGE’

“We’re coming up on 14 years of marriage so we’re kind of in that stage where we have discussions that are intense, a little more than usual,” Brooks told Us Weekly.

The singer said it’s their disagreements that help him to understand a different point of view.

“I think how she inspires me is she thinks differently than me. And so it forces you out of just what you think you know, into what don’t you know, and to look over in there,” he told the outlet.

Yearwood chimed in: “I think what he’s saying is that he listens to me and I’m usually right.”

MIRANDA LAMBERT GIVES HUSBAND BRENDAN MCLOUGHLIN SWEET SHOUTOUT: ‘I’M NOT SAD ANYMORE’

Fox News caught up with the powerhouse country couple earlier this year, when Yearwood, 55, revealed her husband’s handyman skills are useful around the home.

“He is a whatever-it-takes-guy,” Yearwood told us about her superstar husband. “He is. I saw him looking up a video on how to repair the sink in the bathroom, and he did it from watching a video.

“If I go, ‘Hey, I need a dress for tonight and I don’t have time to go shopping,’ he could buy the dress and it would be perfect. I’m telling you, he is amazing,” the “Wrong Side of Memphis” singer continued.

GARTH BROOKS, TRISHA YEARWOOD: THERE’S ‘NOTHING MORE REWARDING’ THAN ‘GETTING YOUR HANDS DIRTY’

Brooks couldn’t help but sing his wife’s praises and offered up his own anecdote about Yearwood’s willingness to get her hands dirty around the house.

“That’s very sweet. I can one-up her,” Brooks began. “I needed some help stringing fence once, and she put some Carhartts on and we went out and strung fence, and I’ve been in love ever since.”

Yearwood married the “More Than a Memory” crooner in 2005 after two previous marriages and is the stepmother to Brooks’ three daughters from his previous marriage to Sandy Mahl.

Two years after a mass shooting that killed 58 people at a country music festival in Las Vegascountry singer Jason Aldean tweeted that he thinks about the Route 91 Harvest “family” every day.

“This will always be a tough day for us,” Aldean wrote Tuesday. “Not a day goes by that we don’t think about our @Route91Harvest family.”

Aldean was performing onstage with his band when shots rang out from the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel, sending the crowd at the outdoor concert scattering for cover.

2 YEARS AFTER LAS VEGAS SHOOTING, BIG & RICH REMEMBER THE CHAOS AND THE HEROES

“For us, it’s sort of been a daily thing,” he said in an interview with iHeartRadio in September. “Every night in our meet-and-greets, we meet new fans who were here. I don’t think we’ve played a show this year where we haven’t had survivors come out to the show. I feel we do that on a daily basis, not just as the anniversary’s coming up.”

Brittany Aldean, Jason Aldean’s wife, also posted a remembrance on Instagram.

“This day will always be a tragic memory. Always in our thoughts and prayers #route91family,” she wrote.

In December, Aldean will headline a concert at the Park Theatre in Las Vegas, his first appearance in the city since the shooting.

The shooter killed himself before police entered his hotel room soon after the gunfire. The motive remains a mystery, authorities say.

Tanya Tucker could help falling in love with Elvis Presley.

The country music singer, 60, revealed that the rock and roll icon pursued her but she rejected his advances per her dad’s advice.

While appearing on “Watch What Happens Live” Wednesday night, Tucker told host Andy Cohen that Presley tried to kiss her but she didn’t let it happen.

ELVIS PRESLEY’S PAL RECALLS LAST TIME HE SAW THE KING HE ‘LOOKED SO BAD’: ‘EVERYBODY HAD TEARS IN THEIR EYES’

“Because my dad told me as I was leaving out the trailer that night, going to the Elvis show at the Hilton, he said, ‘Now, look here. That boy can have any girl he wants in the world. Make sure he knows he can’t have you.’ So I did. He tried to kiss me,” Tucker said.

Later on, Tucker revealed that Presley pursued her multiple times after she rejected him.

“He constantly asked me to come to Graceland, but I never did because I didn’t want to be one of the girls. I’m one of the boys,” Tucker said.

In another interview at AmericanaFest in Nashville earlier this month, Tucker fondly recalled meeting Presley.

“I met him and I think God just made it that way because he knew how important it was for me to meet him. There are a lot of people I really admire who I met and didn’t think too much of. But Elvis was everything,” Tucker said.

Tucker rose to fame at 13 years old when she released her hit single “Delta Dawn” in 1972. Last month, she released her 25th studio album, “While I’m Livin'”.

Johnny Cash’s daughter Rosanne says her dad’s affair with June Carter ‘seemed inevitable,’ painful for her mom

Rosanne Cash is shedding light on what it was like growing up with her iconic father, Johnny Cash.

Rosanne, a singer-songwriter in her own right, appears in an upcoming 16-hour Ken Burns docu-series, titled “Country Music,” where she opens up about the music legend, his legacy and the ride her family took with Cash during his peak years in the 1950s and ‘60s.

JOHNNY CASH REMAINED DEVOTED TO HIS FAITH DESPITE DRUG WOES, WAS NEARLY KILLED BY AN OSTRICH, BOOK REVEALS

“My childhood was chaotic, number one,” Rosanne, 64, told People in this week’s issue. “I understood from a really young age that [my dad] was an artist and that his mind worked differently. And … that scared my mother.”

Rosanne said Cash wrote his hit “I Walk the Line” about her mother Vivian Liberto’s constant fear that the charismatic musician would step out on their marriage.

“He wrote, ‘I’m gonna stay true,’” Rosanne says during Burns’ program. “Of course that wasn’t true.”

Rosanne was the eldest of four daughters and remembers her father as “the sweetest dad,” but noted there were difficult periods with her father in their household due to his battle with addiction.

JOHNNY CASH-THEMED RESTAURANT OPENING IN NASHVILLE IN LATE SPRING

Cash would begin a romantic relationship with June Carter, a member of Cash’s touring cast, which led to Liberto filing for divorce from the “Folsom Prison Blues” performer in 1966.

Cash and Carter would tie the knot two years later after Cash had gotten clean.

The “Composed” author admitted to the magazine that she never harbored any ill will towards Carter. In fact, she praised both her mother and Carter.

“I had two really good examples from women in my life,” Rosanne said.

“It seemed inevitable, though it was so painful for my mom,” Rosanne said of Cash’s affair with Carter. “My mom gave me this powerful sense of discipline, family, mothering and detail orientation. And June gave me this sense of expansiveness and how to live life as a performer.”

GREG LAURIE: JOHNNY CASH’S STORY IS A ROADMAP FOR EVERY CONFLICTED SOUL

Rosanne ultimately followed in her father’s footsteps, but she initially only wanted to be a writer because she didn’t believe she had the voice of a singer. She also wanted no part of fame, based on the behavior she had seen from her father – most specifically, his constant absence in her childhood.

“I didn’t think I could sing,” she said. “And I grew up thinking becoming famous was about the worst thing you could do. You went on the road, you started doing drugs and got divorced and didn’t see your kids and everything fell apart.”

Rosanne said it wasn’t until Cash invited her to join him onstage for a duet of “I Still Miss Someone” that her resentment of her father turned around.

“He worked out all his problems onstage, and that happened with me that night with him,” she said. “It just all got fixed.”

“Country Music” is slated to premiere on Sunday on PBS.

Ronnie Dunn admits he ‘blew off’ music exec at first for this reason

Ronnie Dunn is bringing his iconic style to some of his favorite country and rock music hits in a new solo album.

“RE-DUNN,” the crooner’s third solo album, is a the 24-song project that will feature covers that have significant meaning to Dunn and have been instrumental in shaping his life and career along the way.

The second half of the legendary Brooks & Dunn country duo spoke with Fox News and provided insight into the album’s culmination, which Dunn said carried a heavy emphasis on streaming.

BROOKS & DUNN, RAY STEVENS NAMED COUNTRY HALL OF FAME 2019 INDUCTEES

“Finally, I think the music business is trying to realize that they, maybe, milked all they can out of the profit ratio side of CDs and are moving toward one or a couple of centralized mechanisms that they can control so to speak. We’ll see. That would be under the streaming umbrella,” Dunn said of the idea to create a different type of album.

“A label executive came to me a few months ago and I blew him off at first,” Dunn added. “He said, ‘What do you think about doing like, three, maybe four songs of classic rock songs or songs out of the Brooks and Dunn-era that your fans would have listened to when they weren’t listening to country?’”

Dunn said he immediately knew which tracks he wanted to include in the mix as he already had a playlist on his computer filled to the gills with the era-appropriate cuts he enjoyed the most.

“I just opened it up and cherry-picked 12 or 13, I guess you could categorize them as classic rock songs, and I picked three songs to experiment with and doing it with the guys in the studio,” he said. “A lot of the guys right here have played on some of those records or with some of those bands and it snowballed and suddenly the label guy disappears because I think he’s realized he’s lost control of the session and it went from three to 24 [songs] in just a matter of days.”

He continued: “The next thing I know, I’m meeting with the label going, ‘You know what, I think I’m not going to ask you to pay for this. In fact, why don’t you just let me have it and I will just go until I run out of money or whatever. We’re dedicated to any project, and the next thing I know we’re getting ready to do the contracts and set up with all the streaming entities and my attorneys call and said, ‘Look, you’re crazy to not try and at least put a few of these out.”

The 28-time Academy of Country Music Award winner said his process of selecting which records to play is simple. “You know, it’s just gut feel,” he said. “I mean, I just let my unbridled artist do its deal and see what happens. Nine times out of 10, it’s a train wreck – every now and then it hits and this one felt like it hit.”

Dunn explained that he expects criticism from detractors who balk at the idea of a country singer covering rock ‘n’ roll records, but said the songs he is recording are already massively successful, so he is not concerned about unwritten rules.

“I love every song on here. That has nothing to do with me being a part of it. It’s just that I love these songs,” said Dunn. “They’re already massive hits – that’s good and bad at the same time because I’m sure I’ll be crushed by some critics for trying to take these songs on, and especially on the rock side. But I just kind of don’t care, you know. I had too much fun doing it. It’s the most fun I’ve ever had on a project. I’m sure everybody says that after they come out of the studio with a record, but this really is.”

Each of the 24 songs Dunn is reprising was hand-picked by the 15-time Country Music Association Award-winning artist and each carry with it a special moment that Dunn said makes the song a personal standout.

“There is always that dynamic of where were you when you first heard this song or what was going on in your life when this song played, and we could play that game all day long with every song on here,” said Dunn. “So that had a lot to do with it.

“‘Wonderful Tonight,’ I had buddies in Tulsa who were in Eric’s [Clapton] band back in the day and they were involved with recording that,” Dunn recalled. “I remember him talking about it and that’s the reason I picked it.”

Dunn said recording this album was the “most fun” he’s ever had on a project and touted the unconventional process of having a studio room full of contributors each with creative input or simply there for the ambiance, as a different dynamic that he found refreshing.

“The players that I worked with, I think it’s really a lot of fun if and when you can get these guys both motivated and fired up about a project and doing stuff,” said Dunn. “There is a room full of producers when that happens – they all have input. They’ll step up and go, ‘Well, this is just not another session. We’re not just playing songs for some producer doing records.”

The two-time Grammy Award winner said he was just excited about being around a group of folks who loved to produce and make great music and said many of the recording sessions felt like old-school jam sessions.

“They wouldn’t leave once we started. Usually, they’ll cut a song or two and they’ll all go out to the lounge or something and hang out and they’ll come back, a few more minutes and you call ’em back to cut another one or whatever, but everybody flooded into the control room and it was like it was chaos in there,” Dunn recollected.

“One guy is telling stories about how his uncle was in on the mixing of the 10cc song, ‘I’m Not In Love,’ so all that stuff is going on at the same time and it’s really a blast. It’s like, if there is any way that you can create that environment every day to cut a record, I would say that’s the perfect way to do it.”

A recent inductee into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, Dunn can now add one more accolade to his jacket. He and his crooning partner Kix Brooks will be inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame in October, an honor Dunn said he still can’t wrap his head around.

“Kix [Brooks] and I were in a meeting in my barn, but it was storming like mad and two women came up, then they came in and I didn’t recognize them – Kix knew them from, I guess the Hall of Fame and our manager was there,” Dunn explained of the moment he and Brooks received news their country music legacy would be cemented forever. “And, I’m thinking well, how odd, you didn’t say anything about anyone coming over and Clarence, my manager stopped and he said, ‘Hey, why don’t y’all tell the guys what you’re here for,’ And I’m still going, ‘I don’t know who or where they’re from,” he joked.

“It was storming like mad – so first of all, I’m thinking they probably had to swim back here,” quipped Dunn. “And they said, ‘Well, we’re just here to let you know that you’re being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in October,’ and I was numb.”

He continued: “Then there was a long pause – a moment of silence and I think they were obviously waiting to see what the reaction was going to be, you know. And both Kix and I just looked at one another, then looked away and kind of went, ‘Oh, wow – cool.’ We didn’t know what to say. I still don’t know what to say. You know, this was a month or two ago and now that the official induction is in October, I don’t know what I’m going to say.”

Dunn joked that while he has an innate ability to write and record hit songs, he “can’t put a sentence together when I’m talking.”

“I’ll be out walking around or something somewhere and I’ll keep it low when I’m writing stuff down, but I don’t know,” said Dunn. “Kix is like – I call him the Churchill of country music, he’s a great orator. It’s gonna be politically correct and right down the pike, he’s gonna hit all the bullet points, it’s gonna be perfect and I’m going to stumble through it and I don’t know what I’ll do.”

Dunn released his new cover of George Strait’s “Amarillo by Morning” on Friday. The singer and photographer will release two new singles every four weeks (one country and one rock) leading up to the album’s launch in January 2020.
