Jimmie Allen revealed on Instagram Friday night that he and his wife, Alexis, are separating – and that she is pregnant with their third child.

After much thought and reflection in recent months, Lex & I have made the decision to separate, he wrote on Instagram. As we navigate this life change, we can also share that we will be welcoming another child together later this year.

Allen reiterated their top priority is and will always be ensuring our children are healthy, happy and loved.

The singer said they remain committed to co-parenting with love and respect for one another.

The couple is already parents to daughters Naomi and Zara and Allen has a son, Aaydn, from a previous relationship. The couple met in 2019 and were married in 2021.

Allen disabled the comments on his post and said that in light of their growing family, they respectfully request privacy.

The Delaware native has No. 1 hits, including Make Me Want To and Freedom Was A Highway. He recently concluded a tour with Carrie Underwood.

The holidays can be a painful time of reflection for many, and on Monday, Walker Hayes posted a song on Instagram that acknowledged some of the most brutal losses of his life.

He put a lighthearted spin in the caption, writing, For restless people like me. He also kept the melody breezy and the first few lyrics light. A redemptive throughline carries the mid-tempo that, if delivered without the balance of hope, would be the raw-nerve diary of a man who has been pushed to his breaking point too many times in recent years.

Lyrics include: I got a seven year chip in my pocket and my hands aint fidgeting| I miss my dad, but Im glad I had one worth missing| I got a little girl up there with him and Jesus| Weve been through some sad, sad seasons| And I fell out of love with life| But this morning, Im just grateful to be alive.

Wearing a red Yall Life hat and a beige hoodie, Hayes set up his cell phone and delivered the acoustic version of the song outside his house in close-up range. He periodically looked at the camera and then looked away as if trying to be as honest as possible without breaking. He finished the song by calling it a ditty and saying his fingers are freezing.

Love, yall, Merry Christmas, he said.

Hayes dad died, Charles, died in 2021. The singers daughter Oakleigh died in childbirth in 2018. His wife Laneys uterus ruptured, and she nearly died, too.

Laney and I have cried a lot, Hayes told People, but one thing that makes me the happiest is how much love there has been around us. Weve had the most remarkable questions answered and advice given from people around our neighborhood and in meet-and-greet lines. People walk up to me and tell me their life, and its like, geez, thank you for sharing. I dont even know these people.

At the time, Hayes said playing shows was part of his healing process. And almost five years later, his career is healthier than ever. The Fancy Like singer recently announced his Duck Buck Tour that will launch in April near Chicago.

I cant wait to get back out on tour, Hayes said in a statement. Headlining an arena tour for the first time this past year was a dream come true. The whole family was able to come out, and the road has become our new home away from home. All the fans that have come out or will come out are making this dream a reality. I owe it all to them, and this next tour will be the biggest and best. I dont take for granted that they spent their hard-earned money on my shows, and I plan to make it well worth it!

Jason Aldean and his publicity company of 17 years have parted ways following his wife Brittany Aldeans transphobic comments on social media.

Tyne Parrish, co-owner of Green Room PR, told Billboard the company wasnt the best place for Aldean anymore. The comments werent mentioned as the reason for the split.

We arent the best people for the gig anymore but will always be big fans of his music, Parrish said. He is one of the greatest live entertainers in country music.

Over the weekend, Brittany Aldean posted an Instagram reel showing herself applying make-up with the caption thanking her parents for not changing her gender when she was going through her tomboy phase. She said her comments were taken out of context in another Instagram post.

Jason Aldean replied: Lmao!! Im glad they didnt, too, cause you and I wouldnt have worked out.

Other members of the country community were angered by her posts.

Cassadee Pope and Maren Morris weighed in, offering support to the LGBT community.  

Pope tweeted: Youd think celebs with beauty brands would see the positives in including LGBTQ+ people in their messaging. But instead here we are, hearing someone compare their tomboy phase to someone wanting to transition. Real nice.

Morris replied, calling Brittany Aldean Insurrection Barbie.

Brittany Aldean tagged Cassadee Pope in a post and replied that advocating for the genital mutilation of children under the disguise of calling it gender-affirming care is one of the worst evils.

Brittany Aldean then capitalized on the situation by launching a hot pink Barbie-inspired line of clothing with the message, Dont tread on our kids.

The Green Room is co-owned by Parrish and Kristie Sheppard, both mothers, and is one of the most successful publicity firms in country music. They represent artists including Kip Moore, Dierks Bentley, Thomas Rhett, Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire and more.

Music has always been and remains the Green Rooms core focus, so we had to make the difficult decision after 17 years to step away from representing Jason, Parrish told Billboard.

The publicity firm represented Aldean for his entire career, boosting him into a stadium headliner. They helped him negotiate headline-making crises and scandals throughout his career, including leading him through the aftermath of the Route 91 shooting.

The country couple is expecting their first child in November of 2022. McCreery confirmed the exciting news with People and revealed that they will be welcoming a baby boy into the world.

“We got a little man on the way,” shared the father-to-be.

The “American Idol” alum declared that they always wanted to start a family, but was waiting for the perfect time.

“We always knew we wanted kids, but we always knew we wanted the first few years to travel and have time on the road, to see things and experience life,” McCreery told the outlet. “We’ve gotten to live a lot of life and do some cool things, so seems like now’s a good time to settle down a little and expand the family,” he added.

The two are high school sweethearts and tied the knot in 2018. The 28-year-old nurse said she mapped out a strategic way to break the pregnancy news to her husband, but it quickly got derailed. Gabi wanted to spill her secret after picking her husband up from the airport and before a date night to a hockey game.

“Well, his flight got delayed, so that didn’t work out,” she explained. After the sudden curveball, Gabi shared that she held off and told her husband the morning after.

The “Damn Strait” singer said he always expected to be a girl dad.

“I was the only boy on both sides of my family, the last McCreery boy out there,” he clarified. “Gabi’s from two sisters in her family, so I just figured it would be a girl. But we got a surprise of a boy.”

The happy couple revealed to the publication that they would have been “stoked” for either a boy or girl. Although, McCreery is now looking forward to registering his son into sports and spending quality time.

“I grew up playing sports, so getting to introduce him to baseball, which was my first love right there with music, and golf are just little things that [will be great],” he pointed out.

Gabi confirmed that she would place her career as a pediatric nurse on the back burner once the baby arrives and shared that her line of work prepared her to become a mother. The multi-platinum artist said that having a medical professional as a wife has calmed his nerves.

“I definitely feel like it’s prepared me in many ways,” she explained. “If the baby coughs, I’ll be like, ’Hey, Gabi, is this okay? What’s happening here?’ So, knowing that she has that experience, I think will be huge,” McCreery added.

The chart-topping performer recently (June 21) revealed the news on social media, and fathers within the country community rushed to the comments to show their endless support.

“Welcome to the daddy club,” said Chris Lane. “We are gonna need a daycare for all of us 😂,” added singer-songwriter James McNair.

Leading up to the birth, McCreery will be hitting major cities nationwide to perform tracks from his 2021 album, “Same Truck.” For upcoming appearances visit, scottymccreery.com.

Naomi Judd, whose family harmonies with daughter Wynonna turned them into the Grammy-winning country stars The Judds, has died. She was 76.

Her daughters, Wynonna and Ashley, announced her death on Saturday in a statement provided to The Associated Press.

Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness, the statement said. We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.

Naomi Judd died near Nashville, Tennessee, said a statement on behalf of her husband and fellow singer, Larry Strickland. It said no further details about her death would be released and asked for privacy as the family grieves.

The Judds were to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday and they had just announced an arena tour to begin in the fall, their first tour together in over a decade.

The mother-daughter performers scored 14 No. 1 songs in a career that spanned nearly three decades. The red-headed duo combined the traditional Appalachian sounds of bluegrass with polished pop stylings, scoring hit after hit in the 1980s. Wynonna led the duo with her powerful vocals, while Naomi provided harmonies and stylish looks on stage.

They also made a return to awards shows when they performed at the CMT Music Awards earlier this month.

Honored to have witnessed Love Can Build a Bridge just a few short weeks ago, singer Maren Morris posted on Twitter on Saturday.

This is heartbreaking news! Naomi Judd was one of the sweetest people Ive ever known, singer Travis Tritt posted on Twitter, noting that he had worked with Judd several times on screen and during performances.

Country music lost a true legend ... sing with the angels, Naomi!!! Were all sending up prayers for the Judd family today, singer Carrie Underwood wrote on Twitter.

After rising to the top of country music, they called it quits in 1991 after doctors diagnosed Naomi Judd with hepatitis C. Wynonna continued her solo career.

The Judds hits included Love Can Build a Bridge in 1990,Mama Hes Crazy in 1984, Why Not Me in 1984,Turn It Loose in 1988, Girls Night Out in 1985, Rockin With the Rhythm of the Rain in 1986 and Grandpa in 1986.

Born Diana Ellen Judd in Ashland, Kentucky, Naomi was working as a single mother and nurse in Nashville, when she and Wynonna started singing together professionally. Their unique harmonies, together with elements of acoustic music, bluegrass and blues, made them stand out in the genre at the time.

We had a such a stamp of originality on what we were trying to do, Naomi Judd told The AP after it was announced that they would be joining the Country Music Hall of Fame.

In an interview with the AP in March, Naomi Judd said she was already deep into preparation for the upcoming tour and was looking forward to the Hall of Fame induction.

To have all the incredible opportunities that Ive had, being reminded of all that just makes me very humbled and I just want to bask in the moment, Judd said.

Wynonna Judd remarked that throughout their lives, their music had kept them together.

Music is the bridge between mom and me, and it it bonds us together, she told the AP. Even in the not easy times.

The Judds released six studio albums and an EP between 1984 and 1991 and won nine Country Music Association Awards and seven from the Academy of Country Music. They earned a total of five Grammy Awards together on hits like Why Not Me and Give A Little Love, and Naomi earned a sixth Grammy for writing Love Can Build a Bridge.

The Judds also performed at the halftime of the 1994 Super Bowl, along with Travis Tritt, Clint Black and Tanya Tucker.

The Judds sang about family, the belief in marriage and the virtue of fidelity. Because Naomi was so young looking, the two were mistaken for sisters early in their career. She was also known to prefer flashy stage outfits, full of sparkles and rhinestones, over casual boots and cowboy style clothing.

They first got attention singing on Ralph Emerys morning show in early 1980, where the host named them the Soap Sisters because Naomi said she used to make her own soap.

After the success of Mama Hes Crazy, they won the Horizon Award at the 1984 CMA Awards. Naomi started her speech by saying Slap the dog and spit in the fire!

Naomi Judd was open about her health struggles, as well as severe depression and anxiety. In her memoir, River of Time, she described her diagnosis of hepatitis C, which she said she unknowingly contracted during her time as a nurse. She said that by 1995, her doctors had told her she was completely free of the virus.

In the memoir, she described feeling like she had lost her identity when she returned home after a 2010 reunion tour, isolating herself at her home and dealing with crippling panic attacks. She also said that she had been dealing with trauma from childhood sexual abuse. She was admitted to a psychiatric ward at a hospital and spent time in an outpatient treatment program.

Daughter Ashley Judd is an actor and humanitarian known for her roles in such movies as Kiss the Girls, Double Jeopardy and Heat.
