NASHVILLE NEWS & NOTES – THURSDAY, MARCH 16, 2017!

Dierks Bentley is trying to talk Jon Pardi into taking a Polar Bear plunge into icy cold water, but Jon tells Billboard magazine that he refuses to do it.  Jon says, “Dierks loves being cold. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who loves being cold as much as him.”  It’s okay, Jon.  I wouldn’t do it either!
He’s in front of thousands of fans every night, so you would think there’s not much that would bother Keith Urban.  But according to The National Enquirer, Keith is uncomfortable with Nicole Kidman’s lovemaking scenes in the HBO show ”Big Little Lies”. A source tells the tabloid: “Keith must be going nuts with jealousy watching his wife expose her naked body to another actor, and the world! He’s in showbiz, too, so he knows there’s things you have to do sometimes, but it can’t be easy for him.”
Brad Paisley tells People magazine that he is sick of America being divided. He says, “I am really sick of this climate — really sick of the negativity, I have two little boys, and I want them to feel like this is the nation that I know. That this is the nation that isn’t petty. We have to be as good as we want to be as a nation. We have to do these things, we have to find love.”  Brad went on to say, “I’m going to obviously do my best as a father to set a good example for my children. I want them to see good examples from our leaders. So that is a challenge for our leaders to do that.”
