That was behind the scenes and now what all that resulted in!
Ever since Jake Owen became a dad last Thanksgiving, his outlook on life has changed drastically. His new daughter, Pearl, has caused him to slow life down — and even enjoy those pesky early morning hours.
‘The One Who Got Away’ hitmaker tells People, “Time does fly in life but right now, I’m really trying to slow it down.” He admits that he thinks a lot about what the future holds for the new lady in his life, whom he helped deliver. ”I’m already thinking about where she’ll go to school, what color her backpack will be when I watch her walk away from me and walk inside of her school for the first time, who her friends are gonna be, what she wants to be when she grows up…”
Part of trying to slow life down consists of enjoying every moment, even at the crack of dawn — although Owen hasn’t always enjoyed those AM hours. “My favorite time of the day is probably the morning time with Pearl, when she wakes up after sleeping… she’s always happy in the morning — unlike her dad,” he spills. “I usually tend to be a bit disgruntled or moody in the morning, you could say, but Pearl has made me grow into having a happier outlook on life… she makes my day a whole lot better.” – TasteOfCountry.com
So all I need to do to wake up in the morning is have a new baby daughter…hmmm. I think I will just sleep in for a bit longer. Gotta meet someone first.
In anticipation of the April 9 release of his new studio album, Wheelhouse, Brad Paisley is on the cover of Parade Magazine today. He gave the magazine a short tour of some of his favorite Nashville places, including the Grand Ole Opry house, Artisan Guitars and the Frothy Monkey.
Paisley admits he covers some edgier material on the new album, but hopes his fans will stick with him. “Maybe I’m naive, but I give them a lot of credit for having been with me a long time and knowing me really well,” Paisley tells Parade. “So it’s not like with one album I’m a whole new guy. I’ve had a great career, and if I don’t have one after this …”—he chuckles—“… then so be it.” – TasteOfCountry.com
Yes its true Kenny Chesney has created his own rum!!!!
When Kenny Chesney decided it was time to find the rum he’d always wanted to drink, he didn’t approach the various distillers who’d offered him lucrative deals to lend his name and likeness to a brand created for him. No, the man who oversees every aspect of giant stadium productions and listens to myriad songs beyond what he writes for his albums, decided he wanted to do it himself. Watch the story below!
