Carrie Underwood is one of the 50 Most Powerful Moms according to Working Mother magazine.  Carrie and the 49 others were chosen based on their “ability to influence and inspire us to reach higher and further in building better lives for ourselves,” as well as their income and professional stature.  This is Carrie’s first time on the list since becoming a mom a little more than a year ago.

Look for Kelsea Ballerini as she plays herself on tonight’s episode of Nashville.  She’ll perform her latest hit, “Peter Pan” tonight at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.

The tributes continue for country legend Merle Haggard. Toby Keith along with Merle’s backing band The Strangers performed a medley of Hag’s biggest hits Sunday night during the American Country Countdown Awards show broadcast on Fox.  Haggard’s youngest  son Ben played a guitar with his dad’s name carved into it while the band made their way through six of Hag’s biggest songs!  Haggard passed away almost a month ago on April 6 from double pneumonia.  Watch the tribute here!:
