Congrats going out to Brett Young and his wife Taylor. They announced this week that they are expecting their second child. Not a lot of details at this point but child number two should arrive some time this summer. This means that their daughter, Presley, who was born in October of 2019, will be a big sister. Will she have a brother or a sister? We don't know. With Presley, Brett and Taylor did find out in advance they were having a girl so the guess is they will find out beforehand this time as well if they don't know already.

Dierks Bentley isn't feeling too restless about being off the road right now. He feels that it's been a blessing. "When it does go green again, I'll probably be gone a lot, trying to make up for the deficit of these last few years, of this last year," Dierks says. "Hopefully, it's just the one year, right? I'm already thinking ahead to 2022. Yikes! Hopefully, we're out there in 2021. So, yeah, I'm trying to make the most of the time and it's definitely been good in that regard, because I've been gone, like the song says, a lot."
During a recent interview when Blake Shelton was asked about Morgan Wallen's mullet, he said he thought it was "pretty weak." Blake says that he has a ways to go to match the best of them. "His mullet is kind of like a bob haircut," he says. "I wanna see it get down to about the middle of his back, like me and you know, Tracy Lawrence." It would appear that he was just joking. Blake also called Morgan a good-looking guy and praised his career during the same interview.
