Along with the rest of the world, Kenny Chesney was stunned by the news of what happened at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. So many musicians reacted with love and support, sending their best wishes to all of the victims. In the midst of such tragedy and confusion, the ‘Pirate Flag’ hitmaker decided to take action, establishing Spread the Love: A Fund for Boston.
With the assistance of WKLB/Boston, the singer has established the fund through Boston Medical Center to pay for prosthetics and post-acute care needed by Boston Marathon bombing victims at BMC or other Boston hospitals. It was launched with an undisclosed sizable donation from Chesney, and will also receive proceeds from sales of the song ‘Spread the Love,’ which was co-written and recorded with the Wailers, from his new album ’Life on a Rock,’ released April 30. Direct donations to Spread the Love are also encouraged. – TasteOfCountry.com
You wouldn’t think that Jana Kramer would be cool with her fiance having a new lady in his life — but she’s not threatened. The ‘Whiskey singer recently admitted that Brantley Gilbert has been spending a lot of his free time chatting with their wedding planner.
Maybe Kramer would feel jealous of Gilbert’s fascination with the couple’s wedding planner if she didn’t think it was so cute.
“It is by far the cutest thing in the world,” Kramer told CMT Radio. “I’m like, ‘Oh, honey, who are you on the phone with?’ He’s like, ‘The wedding planner.’”
In fact, the ‘Whiskey’ hitmaker added that her country singing husband-to-be probably spends more time talking to the wedding planner than she does — but she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“He’s so cute. He loves me. He cares. And that’s the sweetest thing in the whole entire planet,” Kramer added.
So far, Kramer and Gilbert haven’t revealed the date or location of their big day. But if the ‘More Than Miles’ hitmaker keeps spending all of his spare time making plans with the wedding planner, it’s sure to be a perfect day. – TasteOfCountry.com
