Country “good guy” Chris Young has set up a GoFundMe page to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey down in Texas.  Chris also donated $100,000 of his own money to get it started!  Chris said, “Port Aransas, Rockport, Corpus Christi, Houston and so many other places are going to be dealing with so much damage and loss of life for a long time to come and I want to help. I’m pledging $100,000 to relief efforts and hope you will join me!”
Dierks Bentley has certainly made enough money to afford the finer things in life.  But when it comes to his cell phone, Dierks prefers his old flip phone over a smart phone.  Dierks tells People magazine, “I actually carry a flip phone as much as possible to remind myself that there’s more to look at than just my phone. We have a saying on the road as a band called ‘living life.’ There were so many moments where we used to do nothing but sit on the bus, and there was no life being lived.”
Reba tells Entertainment Tonight that she has no plans to judge American Idol. ”If anybody was bad, I don’t think I could say, ‘You were bad,’ or, ‘Honey, go get you a day job’. I would definitely not be a Simon Cowell.”
