Miranda Lambert drops ‘It All Comes Out in the Wash’ with help of shirtless husband Brendan McLoughlin

Miranda Lambert employed husband Brendan McLoughlin to promote her new single “It All Comes Out in the Wash.”

On Wednesday night, the 35-year-old country star shared a video of her NYPD officer spouse shirtless doing laundry to tease the track, which is her first release since her acclaimed 2016 album “The Weight of These Wings.” The single dropped Thursday morning.

“He said he’s happy for me and whatever it takes to get my song out there. I do have a tendency to creep on him when he’s doing house chores shirtless,” Lambert joked to Billboard. “And so I figured why not share that with my friends? I creep on him doing all kinds of things: mowing, laundry, dishes. So whenever the next promo comes around, I’m sure I’ll have a video.”

Lambert says the 15 months between her last release and “It All Comes Out in the Wash” gave her needed perspective and that the time off inspired her to write more from a lighter-hearted place than her post-Blake Shelton divorce record.

“I think that it’s got some sarcasm to it, but it’s very honest. I haven’t had a single out in a long time, and I’m just ready to have new music. I’m in a new phase of my life and ready to have new music out there that represents that,” she explained. “This one just felt perfect as far as the vibe of it. It’s fun and lighthearted and I’m really excited about it.”

Lambert said the song title came from her mother and grandmother, who frequently use the adage when she was growing up. “It’s true. Everything finds a resolve, and at the end of the day it doesn’t matter. My last record went through a lot of the trials to tribulations I had been going through personally, and I feel like I’m kind of over the hump and this song represents that in a really great way,” she said.

It’s certainly been a roller coaster year for Lambert: She split from Anderson East, her first boyfriend post-divorce, in April 2018 after more than two years together, then enjoyed a brief fling with the then-married Evan Felker for roughly four months before declaring herself “happily single” that August.

She reportedly met 28-year-old McLoughlin — who at the time was expecting a child with another woman — in November 2018 and they secretly tied the knot in January. She announced the happy news on Valentine’s Day 2019.

“I feel like it definitely has the attitude and tone of the record,” she said of “It All Comes Out in the Wash.” “This whole record’s a little… there’s some positive things and [it’s] a little more upbeat than ‘The Weight of These Wings,’ and it just reflects where I am in life.”

Chris Pratt is a country music star in the making!

The actor, 40, showed off his singing abilities after a surprise performance in Nashville at Robert’s Western World and sang Johnny Cash’s classic “Folsom Prison Blues.”

He shared the stage with performer Sarah Gayle Meech.

Then, Meech posted video proof. “Last night @robertswesternworld Chris Pratt stopped by to sing some Johnny Cash! Thank you @prattprattpratt,” she added.

And the “Avengers” star didn’t hold back his talents. He was also spotted at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, where he sang Garth Brooks’ “Papa Loved Mom” to a crowded room.

Confederate Railroad locks down new venue for charity performance after removal from Illinois state fair lineup

Just two days after being excluded from performing at the upcoming Illinois state fair over its name and use of the Confederate flag, country rock band Confederate Railroad has found another venue in the region.

The band confirmed the gig in a statement to Fox News on Thursday: “As soon as our performance at the Du Quoin State Fair was canceled, we received offers from several great venues in the area, one of the first being Black Diamond Harley Davidson,” read the statement from lead crooner Danny Shirley, who said he elected to pass on other offers coinciding with dates when the Du Quoin State Fair would likely still be going on.

ROCK BAND CONFEDERATE RAILROAD FIRES BACK AT ILLINOIS STATE FAIR AFTER BEING REMOVED FROM PERFORMANCE LINEUP

“The main reason I wanted to do a show in the area at this time was as a way to say thank you to all the great people in Southern Illinois that have spoken up for us. Their outpouring of support has been humbling. Black Diamond Harley Davidson has a great record in the area for raising money for several local charities and funding school scholarships.”

After news of Confederate Railroad’s cancellation circulated, the band found itself on the receiving end of fan praise and support from many in the worlds of country and rock music.

Fellow musician Charlie Daniels was one of many to voice displeasure with the fair’s exclusion of the country rock group, writing in a tweet on July 5, “This political correctness thing is totally out of control.”

Facebook group created over the band’s treatment had 2,800 members as of Tuesday. By Thursday that figure had soared to nearly 5,100.

Shirley said a portion of the proceeds from Confederate Railroad’s performance at Black Diamond Harley Davidson would go to various local charities in Southern Illinois.

“That’s the kind of people I like to work with,” Shirley said. “Even after the recent harsh words from some Illinois government officials, I hope this will help ease tensions in the area brought on by all of this.

“I never wanted this fight and I have tried every way I know of to avoid this fight. However, to quote the words of a song I wrote many years ago: ‘I won’t run away, I won’t back down, I’ll plant my feet and stand my ground. I’m a Southern Man.’”

Shirley urged fairgoers to attend and support the other acts being showcased: “Please support the artists at the Du Quoin State Fair on Aug. 27.”

Rock band Confederate Railroad fires back at Illinois state fair after being removed from performance lineup

A Southern rock band called Confederate Railroad is firing back after it was barred from performing at an upcoming state fair in Illinois over its name and use of the Confederate flag.

Formed in 1987 in Atlanta, Ga., Confederate Railroad was tapped to play the Du Quoin State Fair on Aug. 27 in Du Quoin, Ill. as part of “90s Country ReLoaded Day,” the New York Post first reported, citing local media.

In a statement to Fox News, the band confirmed they have been removed from the show by the Illinois Department of Agriculture because of the name of the band.

“This was very disappointing as we have played this fair before and enjoyed it very much,” read the lengthy statement by lead singer Danny Shirley. “The outpouring of support from Confederate Railroad fans, fans of other acts, and the public in general, has been both overwhelming and very much appreciated. I would also like to thank the actors, athletes and fellow country music artists who have spoken out in support.”

The statement continued: “Live concerts are how we pay our bills and feed our families. I would never want to see another act lose a payday because of this. Please go out to hear these two great bands. As I have said many times onstage, I am by no means a saint but, I am a man of faith and I have faith that God will see us through this as well as whatever comes next!” Shirley wrote.

The band’s response came after their performance cancelation was first addressed by the fair’s manager, Josh Gross, in a statement provided to the Du Quoin Weekly, the Southern Illinoisan reported.

“The Illinois Department of Agriculture has removed Confederate Railroad from our 2019 Du Quoin State Fair Grandstand lineup,” Gross said. “While every artist has a right to expression, we believe this decision is in the best interest of serving all of the people in our state.”

When reached for comment by the Southern Illinoisan, the state Department of Agriculture declined to iterate when the band was initially booked, whose decision it was to pull the act or why Confederate Railroad was removed from the lineup, according to The New York Post.

Fellow musician and country music legend Charlie Daniels was one of many to voice their displeasure with the State Fair’s decision to ax the rock group, writing in a tweet on July 5, “This political correctness thing is totally out of control.”

“When a fair cancels the Confederate Railroad band because of their name its giving in to facism [sic], plain and simple and our freedom disappears piece by piece. Sick of it,” read the tweet.

A Facebook group has since been created over the band’s treatment and had garnered nearly 2,800 members as of Tuesday.

Among others irate over Confederate Railroad’s cancelation is Oak Ridge Boys member Joe Bonsall, who summoned the man upstairs to help with his disbelief.

“I have played the @DuQuoinFair many times over the decades … however, I must say that canceling @ConfederateRR JUST because their name is CONFEDERATE RAILROAD is a crock of crap!!! These are good men singing good songs… God please help us all …” wrote the singer and banjo player who provided a local newspaper clipping detailing the banishment.

However, all is not lost for fans of Confederate Railroad, as the Southern Illinoisan reported that other venues in the region are working to book the rock and country band for a makeup show.

“To me, this isn’t about getting people to our business. If whoever else in Southern Illinois ends up bringing them in, I won’t be mad. This is about Southern Illinois proving a point,” Joe McKinney, the manager of entertainment at the local Field of Dreams event venue, told the news outlet.

“This choice was made by a select few up north who are offended, instead of what the majority want, and the band was completely disrespected.”

Country music icon Lee Greenwood helps gift double-amputee veteran a customized home

Country music star Lee Greenwood was especially proud to be an American over the holiday weekend, after working with a nonprofit to provide a specialized home for an Afghanistan war veteran who lost his legs overseas.

Greenwood teamed up with Helping a Hero to provide wounded warrior Matt Deatherage with a home equipped for him to live independently, and the two men appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Monday to talk about the new house and the organization that made it happen.

Deatherage said he was “amazed” at his new home, and the hard work done by Helping a Hero to aid dozens of veterans like himself with special needs.

“Each of these veterans have their own issues to deal with,” Deatherage said. “Not everyone fits into a specific mold.” The Army veteran was deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan in 2010, and stepped on a land mine in March 2011 which resulted in the loss of both of his legs. Although he wears state-of-the-art prosthetics, he developed diabetes after his injury and now uses a wheelchair the majority of the time.

His new home is equipped with ramps and wide doors to accommodate his chair, as well as an exterior pathway so that he can get around outdoors.

Greenwood, best known for his iconic song “God Bless the U.S.A.,” said he felt particularly called to get involved with Helping a Hero. The organization has provided over 100 homes to veterans in 22 states, the singer said.

“We have to take care of veterans, particularly friends who spent so much time recovering from a wound that would absolutely take us out,” he told the hosts.

Brett Young shares hilarious story about wife’s pregnancy cravings: ‘What is happening here?’

Brett Young finally had the opportunity to experience his wife Taylor Mills as he had never seen before.

The country music star spoke to Fox News on Wednesday from the Chase and Southwest Airlines #BigDreamsStartSmall networking panel in New York and updated us on what’s changed in his life since we last chatted with him during his tour with Lady Antebellum in 2017.

Simply put, Young’s world has been turned upside down and he shared quite the tidbit about his pregnant wife and how’s she’s handling the ever-changing effects of motherhood since the happy couple announced the exciting news in April.

COUNTRY MUSIC STAR BRETT YOUNG CUTS SET SHORT AFTER VOICE GIVES OUT

“She’s actually better – I expected it to get worse with the pregnancy, her cravings. She actually has less of them now than she did at the beginning,” said Young, 38. “At the beginning, it really was Rice Krispies Treats, and it was to the point where – she’s going to get so mad I’m even saying this, but it’s true – she would just make them in the pot and then not even move them over to the pan to flatten them out. She would just spoon them out of the pot – like straight up. Like, ‘The marshmallows and the butter have melted, I’m going to eat it right now.’”

COUNTRY SINGER CHRIS LANE AND REALITY STAR LAUREN BUSHNELL ARE ENGAGED

Young, who took home the new male vocalist of the year honor at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards, said he couldn’t contain himself and was amazed at the fact Mills had such strong cravings even though she hadn’t begun showing.

“I was cracking up. She wasn’t even showing yet and she just needed the Rice Krispies Treats,” he said. “I made a joke the other day – she’s 23 almost 24-weeks pregnant now and we were in the airport lounge and I was like, ‘Babe, there’s Rice Krispies Treats squares,’ and she was like, ‘Oh put them in a cup for me,’ and I put a bunch in a cup and she took one bite and she was like, ‘Oh no – these are the kind from the package, they just chop them up.’”

“And I’m like, ‘Are you a Rice Krispies Treats snob? What is happening here?” Young joked.

COUNTRY SINGER-SONGWRITER RYAN HURD OPENS UP ABOUT NEWLYWED LIFE WITH MAREN MORRIS

With a growing family to look after, the “Mercy” performer said he and Mills are over-the-moon excited to welcome their new bundle home and have been stopping at nothing to ensure every detail is perfect whenever the special day comes.

“You know, once we got married eating right got easier because she was a good influence. And now she’s pregnant, so now it’s harder because she’s a terrible influence,” Young quipped about the challenges of keeping yourself healthy while living on the road. “But my desire to be on the road, even though I still love it, has pretty much been cut in half.”

The former college baseball pitcher said his tour bus now comes equipped with a nursery for their baby and the two are full steam ahead on prepping their new home for the arrival.

“We’re a little bit over four months pregnant. We do have a new home that is not – and maybe the way I’m feeling right now will never be done being furnished, but you know, I think as much as a woman goes to the nesting phase, I kind of am to and so I love being on the road, and once I get out there again I’m always excited to be there,” said Young.

The singer-songwriter has five No. 1 singles to his credit and while Young certainly knows the road will always come calling, he noted that he’s found it easier to shake off the allure of getting back into the mix, especially with the added element of being a family man on the horizon.

“From 2017 to now, I’m excited to be at home. So yeah, the balance – You know I heard Dierks Bentley do an interview recently where they asked him how he balances it. He said, ‘That’s the trick – you don’t and you have to be OK with that,’” recalled Young.

“And I think I kind of finally just accepted that you don’t, and it’s that right partner in your life that knows that you can’t and is OK with it. And so, I’m still running as much as I can but also trying to make as much time my wife, my soon to be baby as I can. Life is still beautiful the diet is still difficult, but always blessed nonetheless.”

Country singer Chris Lane and reality star Lauren Bushnell are engaged

Country music star Chris Lane popped the question to former “Bachelor” contestant Lauren Bushnell over the weekend and she said “yes!”

The singer, 34, and the reality star, 29, were at her family’s home in Oregon celebrating Father’s Day when Lane started to play a romantic song called “Big, Big Plans” that he wrote for the special occasion. And in the lyrics, he asked Bushnell to marry him.

“I knew she wouldn’t want some elaborate crazy proposal,” Lane told People. “So, I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard.”

“I was initially worried that doing it on Father’s Day might not be the best move, but her dad, Dave, said that it could only add to his Father’s Day and that’s when I decided Sunday, June 16 was the day,” he said. “Shout out to Lauren’s parents, Dave and Kris, for having the yard in tip-top shape!”

CARA DELEVINGNE CONFIRMS YEAR-LONG ROMANCE WITH ASHLEY BENSON

“Even though I felt pretty confident I was going to get the ‘Yes,’ I’ve never been that nervous,” Lane added. “When I got to the third verse of the song and knew it was time, I pretty much blacked out. The next thing I knew, she said ‘yes’ and the nerves just lifted! It’s an explosion of excitement, pure joy, and love.”

And the ring wasn’t too shabby; Lane proposed with a solitaire 3.5-carat emerald-cut diamond on a pave band. They had gone ring shopping a few months prior just for fun and Bushnell confessed that design was her favorite.

“Chris is the most thoughtful person,” Bushnell gushed. “He clearly put so much time and thought into not only the song, but also making sure everyone I love most was surrounding us in that moment. Holding each other, hearing the song for the first time and then seeing him get down on one knee is a moment I’ll never forget. Watching the video back was almost just as emotional as the proposal itself — I still get teary-eyed even thinking about it. Seeing all of those memories in one place and then reliving the best day of my life is pretty special!”

John Rich: ‘Shut Up About Politics’ hit song resonating because it’s ‘what everybody’s thinking’

A hit song recorded by John Rich is resonating with America and helping military families in a unique way, the country music recording artist said.

Rich explained why the song “Shut Up About Politics” – recorded with a little help from the hosts of “The Five” – had soared to the top of the iTunes download charts, in an appearance “The One with Greg Gutfeld” podcast.

“I looked up and we were literally the number one most downloaded song on any genre of music,” the country music star said.

Rich joked that host Greg Gutfeld, who received a co-writer credit for the song, penned something more popular than some ageless tunes.

“You’ve now written a song bigger than “Happy Birthday,” Greg,” he said.

The CMA Award nominee added country music is popular across the country because it speaks to listeners’ personal thoughts.

“The thing about country music, and the reason it’s so big, a lot of times in country you’ll write songs that’ll say what everybody is thinking.”

He added “Shut Up About Politics” was no different.

“You and I were able to put into a little song how people feel about not being able to watch an award show or a game or a movie… without there constantly being some kind of political angle to it,” Rich said. “You feel like screaming at them, ‘please shut up about politics’.”

He and Gutfeld also discussed how 100 percent of the song’s proceeds go to Folds of Honor.

“Folds of Honor puts kids through college who lost a parent through combat,” the singer said. “Our little song, Greg, is going to be having a serious impact in real people’s lives in this country.”

Gutfeld said the idea for the collaboration came from a suggestion by Dana Perino during a bus tour with his “The Five” co-hosts a few years ago.

“When we did the bus tour a couple years ago, I would be… writing these insane country songs about being on the bus, and she said, ‘Boy, you should record one of these.”

‘Old Town Road’ sparks breakthrough when mostly nonverbal autistic boy sings along, mom says

More than just a catchy tune, “Old Town Road” gave one Minnesota family a miracle.

The popular country-rap hit is apparently the song that sparked something inside of an autistic, mostly nonverbal boy from Cottage Grove, a city roughly 25 miles southeast of Minneapolis.

GUY FIERI WANTS TO MAKE A ‘FLAVOR TOWN ROAD REMIX’ OF LIL NAS X’S ‘OLD TOWN ROAD’

Sheletta Brundidge posted a video online last week of her son, 4-year-old Daniel, humming along to “Old Town Road,” by Lil Nas X and featuring Billy Ray Cyrus. Then, something incredible happened.

“It was just a hum at first,” Brundidge told the Tennessean. “I was like, ‘Oh my god, he’s singing ‘Old Town Road.’ Then he started saying the words. This is a child who hasn’t said three or four words together in the time he’s been alive.”

LIL NAS X HIT ‘OLD TOWN ROAD’ PULLED FROM BILLBOARD COUNTRY CHART, SPARKING OUTCRY

The mother said she broke down in tears, and quickly called her husband to come see their son before she filmed the “breakthrough.”

“It took us six months for us to teach him the letter A. Without any teaching, he was able to listen to it, absorb it, memorize it and then recall it,” she said. “All this money we spent on therapists and doctors and supplements … and ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ is the one who brought my son the breakthrough that he needed.”

Brundidge said she’s working with Daniel’s therapists to figure out why he responded to the jam, and is hoping to find other songs that might work the same.

Lil Nas X, who performed the song with Cyrus and country superstar Keith Urban at CMA Fest on Saturday, tweeted in response to Daniel singing: “what a king.”

CMA Fest stars mix country with hip-hop and rock in memorable performances

This year’s CMA Fest in Nashville has included some memorable moments, and Saturday night’s shows were no different.

Tim McGraw cranked out his biggest country hits, including “All I Want,” and “Southern Voice.”

But McGraw halted his show at one point to salute country star Randy Travis, who was in the audience.

Travis recently released new music six years after suffering a near-fatal stroke.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Randy Travis is right there in the front, come on,” McGraw said, according to the Tennessean of Nashville. “How much better can it be in Nashville than to be in a stadium and have Randy Travis on the front row?”

Also Saturday, singer Billy Ray Cyrus took the stage with Lil Nas X and Keith Urban for a performance of the hit country-hip hop hybrid song “Old Town Road,” the Tennessean reported.

The song was the center of controversy when it was removed from a Billboard country chart earlier this year.

On Friday night, it was a mix of country and rock as superstar Carrie Underwood was joined onstage by Joan Jett.

According to People magazine, the pair teamed up for five songs familiar to Jett’s fans: “Bad Reputation,” “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” “Crimson and Clover,” “Fresh Start,” and “I Love Rock & Roll.”
