Morgan Evans Debuts Emotional Song In Wake Of Split From Kelsea Ballerini

Morgan Evans seemed to be telling his side of the split from his wife of nearly five years, Kelsea Ballerini, during his recent set in his native Australia.

Morgan sat down at the piano and belted out a song called "How Long" with the lyrics "How long have you been waiting to take our pictures down? / How long have you been breaking? Why am I just finding out?"

Hardy & Lainey Wilson combine for a "Dark & Emotional " Tale

Country music rising Hardy, and Lainey Wilson, have joined forces for a dark country ballad called “Wait in the Truck”.

“Wait in the Truck” takes the issues of murder and domestic violence head-on, with Hardy singing the role of a guy who runs into a girl, Lainey Wilson, on the side of a road after she’s been beaten. He finds the man who hurt her, kills him and eventually goes to jail — but he doesn’t regret his actions or changing the girl’s life for the better.

“’Wait in the Truck,’ is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written – probably the best song I’ve ever written to be honest,” HARDY admits. “It hit me so hard the first time I heard the demo back, and no other song had done that before. Very excited for the world to hear the song, excited for the song to give people a platform to maybe speak out about stuff that might be going on in their own homes.

Fans will get their chance to see Hardy sing “Wait in the Truck” live when he hits the road this December for his four-date Wall to Wall Tour.

Jason Aldean has settled in with getting his kids ready in morning

The school year is starting to settle in. As a father of four, Jason Aldean is used to the drill that comes with early school mornings, but he's enjoying a pretty easy break in the action at the moment.

His oldest daughter, Keeley, is in college, but he has one teenager and two that are still too young for full-time school at home. Jason says that at this time, not much is required of him other than providing transportation.

"Kendyl's 15 so she still can't drive, so this morning I got up, took her to school. Luckily she's at the age now where she comes in, makes her own lunch. She gets herself ready for school, so we haven't crossed that yet.

Memphis starts kindergarten next year, and then Navy will start the year after, so when that happens there'll be two of them and I'm sure I'll be doing ponytails and you know . . .  With Memphis it's easy. I just slap a hat on him and go. You notice he's always got a backward ball cap? Yeah, that's cause it's easy. I don't know. They'll make it to school on time. That's my role in it all."
