Zach Bryan and his girlfriend Brianna LaPaglia (Brianna Chickenfry) were involved in a collision in a side-by-side that she's describing as "traumatizing." "Zach and I got into a traumatizing side-by-side crash," she shared in a TikTok video. "It flipped a bunch of times. Everything shattered and thank god we had our seat belts on." Zach's "huge gash" was stitched up by paramedics. Shortly after they left, Brianna's cat escaped from the bus and while chasing him down, Zach tore open his new stitches. His next show is Friday in Oklahoma. 

Jason Aldean will pay tribute to Toby Keith, who passed away on February 5th, during the 2024 ACM Awards. Jason called the tribute an honor. He'll sing Toby Keith's 1993 hit "Should've Been a Cowboy" during the show, which airs May 16th at 8pm on Amazon Prime. 

Mother's Day was the perfect day for Brantley Gilbert and his wife Amber Cochran Gilbert to announce that they are expecting their third child. The couple were married in 2015 and share 6-year-old son Barrett Hardy-Clay and 4-year-old daughter Braylen Hendrix. They made the announcement on Instagram with a series of pictures that featured the family holding up sonogram images. 

Lainey Wilson will release her new album, Whirlwind, on August 23rd. The project was produced by Grammy winner Jay Joyce. The album is being described as being "an innovative and grounded extension of Wilson's signature sound." It will also feature some of her most personal stories to date. "I am so excited to finally announce Whirlwind. This album has been a long time coming and I can't wait for the world to have this body of work in their hands soon," Lainey said in a press release. "This new chapter of music is the most cathartic and personal piece of art I've ever made. I hope this record brings some peace to your whirlwind and wraps its arms around you like it did for me."

Former Florida Georgia Line members Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard are talking about why they broke up in 2021. They recently stopped by the Bussin' With the Boys podcast separately to shed some light on what happened. Tyler appeared first and when Brian heard the interview, he wanted to give his side of the story. 

Tyler said the breakdown started when Brian came to him and told him he wanted to explore a solo career. "We were just getting out of our first deal," he shares. "We were kind of in a sweet spot we'd worked for 10 years to get to and I'm like 'Bro, why don't we just ride this thing out for five more years, ten more years and then we can do the solo thing.'" Brian says they had started having conversations about doing solo projects in 2016.

Many people were speculating that the split happened because of their political differences. "I've read a lot and people have said it was political, but really the public issues started, I believe it was right after the election in 2020," Brian explains. "He and his wife had unfollowed us and I'm not exaggerating, he got on - you can go look up the videos - but he said, 'BK's posting some stuff, some political stuff, and I didn't want to see it.'"

There was also a miscommunication about when they would release solo projects. Brian said the initial conversation began in September 2020, with the understanding that any efforts to go solo would be kept under wraps until their fifth studio album dropped in February 2021. In January 2021, Tyler released a collaboration with Tim McGraw called "Undivided."

They both attended therapy together in an effort to keep FGL going. "There were definitely some weeks of healing. We had talks with therapists and life coaches and we've kind of sussed it all out," Tyler shared. "It was just a bit of a grind to try to find a place that we can meet in the middle and understand each other, but it just never got to that place," Brian admits. 

It doesn't sound like they have 100% ruled out a reunion. "It's really hard to say," Tyler says. "I'll never say never, but a lot of stuff would have to change to be honest. A lot of dynamics would have to - there'd have to be some real long open conversations and some healing would have to be done, for sure, before that would ever happen." "You never know, man," Brian says. "I mean, look at the Eagles. There's lots of groups that have gone through way worse things than we have. At the height of everything, it never was really terrible, just seeing things different." The duo last performed together in 2022.

Luke Combs recently matched a $100,000 donation to childhood cancer research after being inspired by a 12-year-old cancer survivor. It all started April 27th at his show at University Park, PA's Beaver Stadium. The day of the show, the young girl named Jocelyn and her parents were approached by Samuel Weidenhofer, a video creator who has gone viral for his random acts of kindness. He told them he was trying to get to a concert but had lost his wallet and was wondering if they had a few dollars to spare. With no hesitation, Jocelyn handed him $10. When Simon asked her why she decided to give up her own money, she said, "because I had childhood cancer and now I love to give back to people." Jocelyn was diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 7. After 2 1/2 years of treatment, she finally got to ring the bell and celebrate being cancer free on January 11th, 2022. Now, she raises awareness about childhood cancer by sharing her story and raises money through lemonade stands, hot cocoa stands and many other fundraisers. Her mom shared that Jocelyn has raised "well over $100,000" for cancer research. As a surprise to her, Simon gave Jocelyn and her family tickets to see Luke Combs that night. He also handed her a brand-name LX1 Little Martin guitar with a note on the back telling her that they would also be meeting Luke backstage. Later that night, Luke shared the story about Jocelyn with the audience, telling them that he was so moved and inspired by her story. He announced that he would match the $100,000 she raised and donate it to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Dare to Dream program. At the very end, he dedicated "Fast Car" to Jocelyn. Her mom later revealed in an Instagram post that Samuel had reached out to her after hearing about their story. He organized every detail from the tickets, to the guitar, to the meet and greet. "We told Jocelyn she was flying out to Pennsylvania to be a speaker at a childhood cancer event so it was a complete surprise. We were blown away with every detail and how incredible Luke and his whole team were with Jocelyn and our family," she wrote.
