Country star RaeLynn has given birth to her daughter, her first child, Daisy Rae Davis. The news was shared by the performer and her husband recently, via Instagram. Nine months ago, the vocalist shared, “Excited for our world to be turned upside down in September cause GOD MADE GIRLS BABY,” using her 2018 CMT Music Award for Female Video of the Year-nominated song in her birth announcement.

“7 Pounds 7 ounces at 4:07pm — September 8th 2021 we became a family of three,” the “Only In A Small Town” vocalist shared. “These two are my world. I am beyond thankful for my husband and all the doctors, nurses and our amazing doula @mollyburg17 for helping us bring miss Daisy into the world babies are truly a gift. So thankful for our little blonde miracle now back to tired selfies, baby snuggles and changing diapers! Love y’all!”

She shared news of her pregnancy to PEOPLE on her 27th birthday, saying, “Every year is special in its own way, but what’s going to make my 27th year on this earth so special is that I get to be a momma to a beautiful baby girl. So that’s why I wanted to wait because it’s the best birthday present!”

RaeLynn has name-dropped a few other superstar country moms — Katelyn Brown, Summer Pardi, Maren Morris, Lauren Lane, Brittany Aldean, and Hayley Hubbard as key aids through her pregnancy. To PEOPLE, she joyfully added, “[they helped] me with tips on what I’ll really need. I’m a pretty lucky girl.”

When not expanding her family by one, RaeLynn is still releasing new music like the new single “Only In A Small Town.” It’s a lead-in for Baytown, her latest album, which will be released on September 24.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are married!

Page Six first reported the couple had tied the knot in a July 3 ceremony held in a chapel on Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch.

Stefani later confirmed the news that the couple had wed, sharing photos from their sweet day via an Instagram post captioned, “July 3, 2021. dreams do come true!”

The photos included a shot of Shelton and Stefani standing together in their wedding attire outside the chapel, looking out into the horizon. Another photo from their wedding reception featured the couple sharing a kiss beside their tiered wedding cake. Stefani also shared a photo of herself in a party dress designed by Vera Wang.

After meeting on the set of NBC’s The Voice, Shelton and Stefani started dating in 2015. They announced they were engaged in October 2020.

“Hey @gwenstefani, thanks for saving my 2020… And the rest of my life.. I love you. I heard a YES,” Shelton wrote on social media, while Stefani responded with her own post, saying, “Yes, please.”

On June 11, Stefani sparked rumors that the ceremony was close at hand when she posted a photo of herself holding a wedding gift and sipping on a glass of bubbly. The photo included the caption “She’s getting married.”

Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks have been married for 15 years and been friends long before then, as both of them got their starts in the Nashville music industry as demo singers–singers paid to quickly record vocals for rough, first-draft versions of songwriters’ compositions, which are then pitched to recording artists who might choose to record their own version of those songs for their albums.

“The first time we ever sang together, we were booked to do a duet, and when we sang together, and it felt like we’d been singing together forever,” she told ET about those early days in Nashville. “He brings so much energy in everything he does. He challenges me in the studio to go beyond what I think I can do.”

Yearwood recently told ET one thing about Brooks that surprised her the most.

“For a long time I really thought, ’Nobody’s this nice.’ The other shoe’s gotta drop, you know? And I’m not saying he’s perfect, but he’s pretty dang close!”

Over the years, Yearwood and Brooks have teamed up for duets such as “Where Your Road Leads,” “Squeeze Me In,” the Grammy-winning “In Another’s Eyes,” their recent rendition of “Shallow,” and their 2016 holiday album Christmas Together. But Yearwood says there is more where that came from.

“We definitely want to do another record,” Yearwood confirms.

Currently, Yearwood has been hard at work with her latest cookbook, which will release in the Fall, and is gearing up to resume filing her cooking show Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. She also recently expanded her business empire with the launch of the Trisha Yearwood Pet Collection, a range of pet accessories.

During the interview, Yearwood was also candid about why she has been (literally) unfiltered with her social media posts, regularly posting snapshots of herself with no makeup and with a relaxed, unpolished hairstyle, alongside occasional glam shots.

“We all have the same anxieties, we all have the same good days and bad days. Let’s own this together,” she says.

After more than a year with no concerts, Thomas Rhett is inviting fans to watch his first full-band performance since 2019. “Thomas Rhett One Night Only from Nashville,” a livestream concert set for Friday, April 30, will coincide with the release of Country Again: Side A, the first taste of his upcoming double album.

“It’s been a year and a half since I last played a live show,” Rhett said. “It’s been good to keep sharing music in all the ways we’ve made work (mostly in front of my plaid curtains), but we really wanted to take it up a few notches until we can safely get back out there on the road. It’ll be where we play some new stuff for the first time and have a chance to share what the songs mean to me!”

The concert, which begins at 7pm CT, will be hosted by Veeps, a direct-to-fan platform that was founded in 2017 by Benji and Joel Madden.Tickets for Thomas Rhett’s livestream concert and VIP packages for the post-show QA are on-sale now at thomasrhett.veeps.com.

Rhett recently notched his 17th No. 1 hit with “What’s Your Country Song,” and is among the artists nominated for Entertainer of the Year at next month’s Academy of Country Music Awards. Last year, Rhett was the co-winner of the ACM’s Entertainer honor, alongside Carrie Underwood. He is also nominated for Male Artist of the Year, and Music Event of the Year, for “Be a Light,” which also features Chris Tomlin, Reba McEntire, Lady A’s Hillary Scott and Keith Urban.

Rhett shared a message with his fans, saying, “We’re going to get the band together, we’re going to play a lot of the new music from this upcoming album…it’s going to be really fun and we can’t wait to see you there.”

There’s a song on Garth Brooks’ brand new album Fun that I knew, just from seeing the name, that I would love. It’s track No. 12, “Where the Cross Don’t Burn.” And singing the powerful tune with Brooks is country legend Charley Pride.

I had a chance to ask Brooks how that collaboration came to be, and he told me why it was so important to him (and why it took so long).

“I’m embarrassed to tell you this story,” Brooks admitted. “But there was something on the internet that said that Charley Pride has passed away. I kicked the table, and Miss Yearwood said, ’What is wrong?!’

“And I said, ’I (expletive) it up again.’ Another thing in my life that I’ve wanted to do — a song I’ve been holding onto for ten years — and I waited. I just waited too long for my big ass to get it done. But then the next day, it came out that that was a false report. So I called Charley and (his wife) Miss Rozene that day. I said, ’Hey can we just get this done?’ So I don’t know how karma works. I don’t know how signs are. But my silver living in the misinformation highway was that it got me to do what I should’ve done ten years ago. And I thought Charley was fantastic.”

During last week’s CMA Awards, Charley Pride was honored with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award. It was part of a historical tribute to the man who broke down racial barriers with every song he sang in his 50 years of making country music. Pride was named the CMA’s Entertainer of the Year in 1971 and Male Vocalist of the Year in 1971 and 1972.

And when Pride accepted the award that night, he did so humbly and with a list of people to thank. Brooks loved that about him, and about the producers of the CMA Awards.

“When people ask me what my favorite part of the CMAs was, it was the fact that when Charley got the Lifetime Achievement Award, they did not play him off. He broke out the sheet of paper and they were not gonna go to commercial or anything to stop him.”

You can read the rest of my interview with Brooks here.

The full track list for Fun:
1. “The Road I’m On” (Randall King, Garth Brooks)
2. “That’s What Cowboys Do” (John Martin, Mitch Rossell, Brooks)
3. “All Day Long” (Bryan Kennedy, Rossell, Brooks)
4. “Shallow” feat. Trisha Yearwood (Stefani Germanotta, Andrew Wyatt, Anthony Rossomando, Mark Ronson)
5. “Dive Bar” feat. Blake Shelton (Rossell, Kennedy, Brooks)
6. “Amen” (Bobby Terry, Matt Rossi, Brooks)
7. “The Courage of Love” (Martin, Brooks)
8. “I Can Be Me With You” (Benita Hill, Amanda Colleen Williams)
9. “Message in a Bottle” (Jenny Yates, Garth Brooks)
10. “Stronger Than Me” (Rossi, Terry)
11. “(A Hard Way to Make an) Easy Livin’” (Rossi, Terry)
12. “Where the Cross Don’t Burn” feat. Charley Pride (Troy Jones, Phil Thomas)
13. “Party Gras (The Mardi Gras Song)” (Rossi, Brooks)
14. “(Sometimes You’ve Got to Die to) Live Again” (Gabe Dixon, Wayne Kirkpatrick)

Other collaborations on Fun include Brook’s duet with his wife Trisha Yearwood on “Shallow,” and his duet with Blake Shelton on “Dive Bar.”
