Remember when BRETT ELDREDGE came through on a promise to jump out of an airplane after his song "Don't Ya" hit Number One? Well, he's at it again. If "Beat of the Music" tops the chart he'll go swimming with SHARKS. He says, quote, "I can't believe I actually might go shark diving. The song's climbing the charts and the more I sweat every day.” Don't worry, Brett WILL be using protection. He says, "I need a cage, so if you all know anybody who has a shark cage I could borrow… and I'll need like 20 drinks." By the way, "Beat of the Music" is #13 on "Billboard's" country chart.
After she made a surprise cameo appearance on Saturday Night Live, Taylor Swift headed to Columbus, Ohio on Sunday to crash a fan's bridal shower. The fan's name is Gena Gabrielle, and she had actually met Swift in 2007 at a meet and greet. The bride-to-be took to her Instagram to share several photos of the two of them hanging out together at the shower. But Swift didn't show up at the party empty-handed; she actually came bearing gifts. Gabrielle then posted a picture on Twitter of the new house warming gifts from Taylor. The photo shows several supplies for the couple's kitchen, including utensils, a cooking pot, a KitchenAid stand mixer and even a Barefoot Contessa cookbook by Ina Garten.
Nancy Jones, the wife of the late George Jones, is planning a memorial for him on the one year anniversary of his death. Friends and fans of the late singer are welcome to celebrate his life and legacy at Woodlawn Cemetery in Nashville on April 26. During the memorial, Nancy will plant two dogwood trees at the "He Stopped Loving Her Today" monument. Nancy said in a statement, "I know how much people loved George, and the love has continued even a year later. I am so fortunate for the friends and fans that George and I made through the years. I want everyone to come celebrate with us, not because he is no longer with us, but to keep his legacy alive." (Photo Credit: http://themindgutter.com/)
