Kane Brown is a Different Man today than he was when he released his first album in 2016. In the early days of his career, Brown struggled with confidence before breakthrough hits, including What Ifs and Heaven. But now – with the release of his third album Different Man – Brown has found his footing.

When Im on stage, I feel like I put on a show now, Brown told Todays Country Radio with Kelleigh Bannen on Apple Music Country. When I used to, I would just get up there and say, Heres a couple songs that I wrote. And then even with the music, I know what I want to say now, I know how I want it to sound. And of course, its going to keep progressing, but I just feel like just maturity-wise… I dont care what everybody thinks now. I used to always be like, I hope he likes me or I hope she likes me, and now its just like, Whatever.

He admits hes not as blasé about it as he sounds – especially on social media. But hes getting better.

One of the things that I do that I need to stop, Ive actually done really well; Ive been applauding myself this last couple months … Like social media, he said. So [if I] have thousands of good comments, Ill see one bad comment, and Ill reply to that person. Thats where I need to get out of that headspace, and Ive done very good lately.

Brown, who recently had No. 1 hits with One Mississippi and Like I Love Country Music, has had such a boost of confidence that he now considers himself great at A&R, which means he believes hes fantastic at choosing hit songs and matching them with the right singers. When he heard the albums title track, Different Man, he said he listened to it over and over in an effort to figure out the perfect artist with whom to collaborate on the song.

Blake Shelton was the first person that popped into my head, he said. So I sent it to him, and then within 30 minutes, he texted me back and said hes on it. So that was just a crossing my fingers, hoping he could find time to record it.

His new pop song Grand came out of a much darker place. Brown said he struggled with depression and his wife fought anxiety during the pandemic. Not being able to play shows, release music, or be creative took a significant toll on him. They werent having conversations or leaving the house, and he couldnt think of anything to write about.

(I was) just wondering if any of this is ever going to stop, Brown said. Im a worrier. So, I finally was just like, Ive got a beautiful family. I go outside and look [at] my pool. I never had a pool growing up as a kid, and I was just like, Im so grateful. Lifes grand.

Browns song Pops Last Name also points back to his family. The singer called his grandfather pop. He was Browns only father figure because his biological father has been in prison since Brown was a child. Pop taught Brown baseball and took him on drives. He died last year, and Pops Last Name memorializes Browns beloved grandfather.

I talk about it in the song, going through the battlefield, there was this statue because the Civil War was fought in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, in the battlefield, Brown said. And there was these statues, and he would always act like the statue was talking to me when I was young. I remembered it… But when I was going through child abuse and stuff with my stepdad and all that stuff, he was there to... I wasnt going to get to go to baseball practice one day; he came and took me out of the house and was like, Hes coming with me. [He] was just a big father figure. And so I had to write a song about him.

Browns Different Man is available now.



Country singer, entrepreneur and CMT Next Women of Country mentor Jessie James Decker is gearing up to show off her fancy footwork on Dancing with the Stars.

The cast of season 31 of Dancing with the Stars was revealed on Good Morning America Thursday morning.

Lets do this @alanbersten !!!! Deckert wrote on Instagram, referencing her DWTS pro Alan Bersten. So excited to be part of @dancingwiththestars season 31 🙈💃🏼😆 ahhhh I cant stop smiling!!!!!!

The new season of Dancing with the Stars premieres Sept. 19 on Disney+. Alfonso Ribeiro and Tyra Banks will co-host this season and Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough will return as judges.

Bersten wrote on his Instagram: Introducing my season 31 partner @jessiejamesdecker !!! Im so excited. This is gonna be such an incredible season of @dancingwiththestars on @disneyplus.

The rest of the celebrity dancers include Charli DAmelio and her mom, Heidi DAmelio, actress Selma Blair, drag queen Shangela, comedian Wayne Brady, reality star Teresa Giudice, actress Cheryl Ladd, actor Daniel Durant, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, reality star Vinny Guadagnino, Bachelorette star Gabby Windey, actor Jason Lewis, actor Trevor Donovan, Good Morning America contributor Sam Champion, and fitness model and son of Arnold Schwarzenegger Joseph Baena.

Decker is far from the first country artist to appear on the show. Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough won the coveted Mirror Ball trophy in 2013. Other country artists who have competed on Dancing with the Stars include Jimmie Allen, Jana Kramer, Lauren Alaina, Sara Evans, Billy Ray Cyrus and Bobby Bones.



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.



Vince Gill’s marathon set at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Thursday proved why he’ll be celebrated on CMT series “CMT GIANTS.” The singer’s nearly four-hour show spanned his vast catalog of hits and musical influences as well as highlighted his vulnerabilities and humor. The concert was part of the Country Music Hall of Famer’s 2022 trek, which marks the first time Gill has toured with his band in three years as he’s been on the road with the Eagles since 2017.

In between telling candid and comical stories about his life and career, Gill performed more than 30 songs with his all-star band. The band includes “The Voice” Season 21 runner up Wendy Moten, who announced Gill’s latest career achievement during her mesmerizing five-song set.

“Mr. Vince Gill is going to be honored very soon in September by ‘CMT: GIANTS,’” Moten said. “It’s a big deal. Only five other icons have had this honor. They’re going to celebrate his legacy, they’re going to celebrate his music, his life in country music. … He earned it! It’s going to be the greatest artists of all time performing Vince Gill’s songs. The guests are heavy hitters. The band also is going to be there and all they do is win awards every year.”

Thursday’s Ryman performance was just a glimpse at Gill’s massive catalog and a preview of the upcoming television special, which premieres Friday, Sept. 16 on CMT. Throughout the evening, Gill was backed by a band that featured frequent collaborator and award-winning steel player Paul Franklin alongside famed Nashville studio musicians, including guitar player Jedd Hughes, drummer Billy Thomas, bassist Jimmie Lee Sloas and keyboard player John Jarvis. Guitar player Jack Schneider and singers Moten and Gill’s daughter Corrina Grant Gill rounded out the eight-piece ensemble.

Gill launched his first of four back-to-back performances at the Ryman with No. 1 songs “One More Last Chance,” “Tryin’ to Get Over You,” “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away” and “I Still Believe In You.” He joked that it was a collection of songs “that allowed me to buy a house I can no longer afford to live in.”

“Then along came that Amy Grant girl, saved my ass!” he continued. “My bride Amy is doing fine. She had a bicycle wreck last Wednesday over in Percy Warner Park and thank God she was wearing her helmet. She was knocked unconscious for 10 or 15 minutes.”

The Ryman concert was Gill’s first time back on stage since Grant’s bike accident and he and his daughter’s emotions were visible. He introduced spellbinding ballad “Whenever You Come Around” as, “My favorite song to sing about my favorite girl.” Later, he’d give the spotlight to Corrina for “When My Amy Prays.” She changed the lyrics to “When My Mama Prays” and choked back tears during the powerful performance, which garnered a standing ovation.

Gill’s set spanned his musical influences. His love of bluegrass was showcased on “High Lonesome Sound,” as was his appreciation for Merle Haggard and Buck Owens with standout covers of “The Bottle Let Me Down” and “Together Again,” both featured on his 2013 Bakersfield album with Franklin. “You gotta know where you came from to ever know where the hell you’re going,” Gill said.

He also performed his first co-write with Whisperin’ Bill Anderson with the pensive “Which Bridge to Cross (Which Bridge to Burn)” as well as shared one of the many life lessons he learned while writing “Look At Us” with Max T. Barnes.

“If we didn’t have people that taught us how to do this, it wouldn’t go on,” Gill commented. “We have to learn in our own way, play in our own way, figure out how to keep it going.”

Gill’s set included several new songs he wrote during the pandemic. The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer captivated as he told the stories behind each one. The powerful story songs covered love and loss from the perspective of a parent whose child went off to war on “When a Soldier Dies” and the poignant “Benny’s Song,” which Gill penned after the death of his oldest friend, Benny, in 2020.

“It’s hard to put yourself out there and be vulnerable sometimes, but it means the most when you are,” he said.

Additional highlights included “Go Rest High on That Mountain,” a song he dedicated to his late brother, fan favorite “When I Call Your Name” and rollicking set closer “Liza Jane.” Gill’s first of four nights at Ryman Auditorium exemplified his “GIANTS” status as the singer’s marathon set showcased his many hits as well as his power as a comedic and thoughtful frontman. All the while, Gill’s concert displayed his unyielding passion for music.

“I’ve been doing this professionally for 50 years,” Gill said. “Somebody, when I was 15 years old, said they’d pay me a little bit of money to come play at their beer joint and I haven’t stopped since. … What I know – without any doubt – if I never had any success, I would still be playing some Holiday Inn bar six nights a week. I love music that much.”

Gill’s tour continues tonight at the Ryman Auditorium. “CMT GIANTS: Vince Gill” premieres Friday, Sept. 16, on CMT. Previous artists featured in the franchise are Reba McEntire (2006), Hank Williams, Jr. (2007), Alan Jackson (2008), Kenny Rogers (2020) and Charley Pride (2021).



The Village of Kennedy will again be the destination of choice for rodeo fans – with the 89th Annual Moose Mountain Pro Rodeo set to take place on July 22 – 24th.
Along with the rodeo events that visitors look forward to seeing at the MMPR each year, Jill Lowe (Moose Mountain Rodeo Association) says that visitors will notice a couple of additions this year.

“Rodeo fans won’t be disappointed! We’ll have the same great action happening in the rodeo arena that people are expecting to see.

“But this year, Mutton Busting will be returning to the MMPR!

“We’ll also have the ‘Daring Divas’ (a trick riding team) performing after both the Saturday and Sunday rodeo performances – before the Wild Pony Races.

“The Rodeo Parade will start at 1 p.m. on Saturday, with the Demolition Derby starting right after the parade is over on Saturday and the finals happening after Sunday’s rodeo performance. We have a guaranteed prize of $2,000 for the First-Place finisher in the Demolition Derby this year. So, people can look forward to seeing some exciting action there as well!”
