It's looking like BLAKE SHELTON will have his very first #1 album on the "Billboard" all-genre Top 200.  "Red River Blue" . . . which came out Tuesday . . . is on pace to sell around 110,000 copies by the end of the week.  That should be enough to take the top spot.  (Billboard)

 

 

LITTLE BIG TOWN recorded a pretty tight version of the song "Price Tag" . . . by English pop singer (slash) rapper JESSIE J.  It's part of their "Scattered, Smothered & Covered" web series.  (--Make sure you stick around to the 2:09 mark because that's where the very white PHILLIP SWEET busts out the rhymes.)

 

LUKE BRYAN will be performing a free concert at the Grand Ole Opry on July 20th.  You probably can't make it . . . but you can WATCH portions of it, which will air on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on August 11th.  (Full Story)

Remember actress JULIETTE LEWIS?  She’s been in tons of movies, including “Natural Born Killers” and “Cape Fear”.  Well, now she’s in the ZAC BROWN BAND video for “Knee Deep” . . . and she’s pretty funny.  Oh, and JIMMY BUFFETT’S in it too, but you already knew that.  (Video) 

JASON ALDEAN will star in the next episode of CMT’s  “Invitation Only”.  It airs July 29th.  (Full Story)
