Morgan Wallen Was Arrested on Saturday for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct

This is no way to celebrate the loosening of quarantine.  MORGAN WALLEN was arrested for public intoxication and disorderly contact on Saturday.  It was outside of Kid Rock's Big Ass Honky Tonk & Rock 'N' Roll Steakhouse in Nashville.

 

 

But it started INSIDE when Morgan and his friends were allegedly "kicking several glass items." Security guards escorted them out of the place, and then the cops outside gave Morgan several opportunities to walk away . . . but he refused. 

 

 

He also started getting into "multiple verbal altercations with several individuals passing by."  Next thing you know he's arrested "due to being intoxicated in public and being unable to take care of himself."  He was released on bond sometime later.

 

 

Morgan tried to set the record straight Sunday on Twitter, saying he and his friends were "horse-playing with each other" and didn't mean any harm.  He apologized to the club staff and "thanked authorities for being professional and doing their job with class."

Luke Combs Shares Studio Version & Lyric Video of Quarantine-Inspired Single "Six Feet Apart"

 

Luke Combs has officially released his quarantine anthem "Six Feet Apart" after previously premiering the tune during an at-home concert livestream last month.

 

"My new song 'Six Feet Apart' just came out this morning," Combs said Friday in a Twitter video. "I hope you guys enjoy it. I hope you guys are doing well. I can't wait to see you on the road hopefully really soon."

 

He added in a tweet that the track is about "everything going on, what it has me missing, and things I’m looking forward to. Hope y’all can relate and reminds y’all there will be light after the dark."

 

Combs co-wrote "Six Feet Apart" with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder, featuring relatable lyrics like "I miss my mom / I miss my dad / I miss the road / I miss my band / Giving hugs and shaking hands / It’s a mystery, I suppose / Just how long this thing goes / There’ll be crowds and there’ll be shows / And there will be light after dark / Someday, when we aren’t six feet apart.”

Tim McGraw to Release New Single "I Called Mama" Ahead of Mother's Day Weekend

Just in case you happen to forget that Mother's Day is this weekend, Tim McGraw will remind you when he drops his sentimental new single, "I Called Mama," on Friday, May 8.

 

Nash Country Daily reports that the track will debut with a lyric video containing footage of McGraw as a baby with his mom. The official music video will then drop later in May, featuring fan-submitted videos and photos of their moms. 

 

“On the one hand, this song is literally, ‘Hey, call your mom.' On the other hand...it’s a great reminder that hearing someone’s voice who knows you and loves you can help you get through anything," McGraw says about the song, written by Lance Miller, Marv Green and Jimmy Yeary.

 

"It’s at these very difficult times that music can help and the power of a song can give someone a moment of clarity or comfort, or just a smile. Especially now, when we seem to need it more than ever.”

Miranda Lambert & "Amazing" Husband Plan to Tour U.S. in $112,000 Airstream Trailer

Coronavirus can't keep Miranda Lambert down! The country star revealed this past Sunday on Instagram that she's hitting the road in a brand-new Airstream.

 

"I’ve been everywhere, but I haven’t seen much of anything. I’ve been touring for 19 years and most times we just roll in, play our show and roll to the next town. I’ve only gotten to spend some real time in a few of the places I’ve been," she explained.

 

"After spending these last few months at home...I realized something. Just because I can’t travel and play shows doesn’t mean I can’t travel and make music." She then revealed that she and her "amazing travel companion," husband Brendan McLoughlin, purchased a 2020 Airstream Globetrotter to "make room for adventure."

 

She adds, "I’ll be pulling this rig all over the country. I know that seeing the world through the windshield again will bring creative vibes." 

 

Us Weekly notes that she also shared video of the RV, which retails for about $112,000 and, as Lambert notes in her video, comes complete with a "real shower."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Sunday thoughts. When people ask me questions about all the traveling I’ve done , my answer is pretty much the same every time. “ I’ve been everywhere but I haven’t seen much of anything. “ I’ve been touring for 19 years and most times we just roll in , play our show , and roll to the next town. I’ve only gotten to spend some real time in a few of the places I’ve been. After spending these last few months at home ( a much needed break and time to nest??) I realized something. Just because I can’t travel and play shows doesn’t mean I can’t travel and make music. I have the most amazing travel companion, my husband , and we decided to add a family member. Y’all Meet “The Sheriff . “ A 2020 Airstream Globetrotter. ( thanks @rocketcityrv ) I’ve been a vintage trailer collector for years and this is my very first new one. I’m letting go of a few vintage to make room for adventure in this silver gem! I don’t like change but I’m learning to embrace it. Until I get get back on Elvira and tour, I’ll be pulling this rig all over the country. I know that seeing the world through the windshield again will bring creative vibes. #highwayvagabonds #livinlikehippies #BandMetour
