There are scary ghosts, friendly ghosts, and according to singer Kip Moore, very clean ghosts. He would know — he’s apparently being haunted by one of the extremely impeccable spooks.
“It’s real, and every night I feel like I’m gonna die,” says, speaking about the unwanted nightly guest. He rents a Nashville home from his publisher, and apparently, there’s an angry female ghost who sweeps outside his door at night. The ’Hey Pretty Girl’ singer shares, “I’ll hear some loud crashes at 3AM in the middle of the night. It’ll give you a heart attack, that’s for sure. But at least she’s clean. She sweeps, so at least she’s clean.”
However, the mystery ghost is also disturbing Moore’s REM cycle, and he wasn’t too please about it one evening in particular. “I literally heard something the other night that just, I couldn’t believe I heard it and I sat up in my bed and I really did this,” Moore remembers. “It was 2AM and I said, ‘I got no beef with you if you’ve got no beef with me’ and I went back to sleep.” – TasteOfCountry.com
Kenny Chesney and three of country music’s hottest openers played for 50,000 screaming fans at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field on Saturday (June 22), but the day’s most memorable numbers may be the 73 arrested or the nearly 150 treated on site or at medical facilities.
Police say at least 10 large fights broke out during the pre-show tailgate. The parking lots were forced to open early — at 9AM according to CBS News — because lines of cars were backing up local traffic. Kacey Musgraves didn’t begin her opening set until 5PM. – TasteOfCountry.com
Well-loved country superstar Toby Keith also made the list, ranked at No. 43, but more impressively, he represents the genre as the cover art for the magazine’s Celebrity 100 issue. The “$500 Million Man” is paraded for having his own liquor, his endorsement deal with Ford, his restaurant chain, his sold out concerts and his vast influence, among other factors. Forbes estimates that the ‘I Love This Bar’ hitmaker raked in an impressive $65 million over the last 12 months — less than Swift, but far outpacing stars like Beyonce, who earned ‘just’ $53 million.
Carrie Underwood and Kenny Chesney follow Keith on the list, coming in at No. 46 and No. 47, respectively.
