NBC’s Sunday Night Football may have Carrie Underwood singing its theme song, but now CBS has Garth. Garth Brooks has recorded the new song “Pure Adrenaline,” which will kick off each Saturday’s SEC Game of the Week.  The new opening will premiere September 3 at 3:30 p.m. ET, when UCLA takes on Texas A&M. Each week’s version will be slightly different, with lyrics tailor-made for each game, and its own video featuring Garth.

Brad Paisley’s 2015 college tour was so successful, he’s doing it again this year.

He heads for Ohio State University on the 15th, with more dates to be announced in the coming days.  Last year, more than 120,000 fans took in the free shows on the Country Nation College Tour.

Blake Shelton joined his new flame Gwen Stefani on stage at her Dallas tour stop this weekend, where they performed their duet “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.”  Earlier this month, Blake took the stage with Gwen at her Detroit tour stop.
