NASHVILLE NEWS & NOTES – FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 2017!

Naughty Gossip claims Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton may ask for more money from The Voice. A source tells the site, “Gwen and Blake have teamed up together in negotiations with The Voice. Together they make up 50% of the judging panel and know they have more power united than they do alone. It is a very smart move.”  Maybe…but sometimes that gets your butt kicked off a show, too!
Thomas Rhett tells Sounds like Nashville that he is working hard on his next CD.  T.R. says, “I took all of January and made album three. We cut 22 songs, which is way too many songs, and I think the next few months is going to be trying to narrow down which ones are the keepers.”  No word on a release date yet!

The line will include Trisha’s BBQ Sauce, Trisha’s Applewood Molasses Rub, Trisha’s Summer in a Cup Cocktail, Trisha’s Biscuit Mix and Trisha’s Unfried Chicken Seasoning Kit.
