Brad Paisley tells Billboard magazine this week that his upcoming album Moonshine In The Trunk, has a bit of everything on it and will hold its own against todays kind of country music. He says, "It’ll fit in. It feels like modern honky tonk music to me. There’s a lot of alcohol and a lot of talking about the weekend and a lot of celebrating what is right in life in spite of whatever is going wrong. That’s kind of what honky tonk music always was. That will never die. That’s who we are as a format. It’s just new ways to say it." (Photo Content:  www.billboard.com )

Luke Bryan welcomes Brantley Gilbert on the bill for his show at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia Friday night, and fans at the concert are in for a special treat from the two Georgia boys.  The Philadelphia show is just the latest stadium date on Luke's That's My Kind of Night tour. Though the show has some similarities to his regular arena shows, Luke tries to make the most of playing such large venues.  Lee Brice and Cole Swindell are also on the bill for Luke's big show in Philadelphia.

Kenny Chesney is primed and ready to entertain his fans at the Flora-Bama Lounge on the Gulf Coast this Saturday. He hasn't been on stage with his band in almost a year, so Kenny plans to keep the show loose and just have fun with it all, and there will be no set list.  While the Flora-Bama show is free, fans have to have wristbands to get into the show. Those passes were all claimed very quickly after becoming available online a few weeks back.  Of note, show organizers are asking fans without wristbands to stay away from the Flora-Bama this weekend. The show will be taped for a TV special, so fans who can't make it can look forward to seeing highlights at a later date.

Even more country stars have poured ice-cold water on themselves as the challenge to raise awareness of ALS sweeps the nation. Florida Georgia Line got in on the act at their Wednesday night show in Missouri. Video of FGL taking the challenge was posted online Thursday morning, and they called out none other than Garth Brooks to accept the ice bucket challenge.  Keith Urban took the challenge then called out Eric ChurchTim McGraw and John Mayer to douse themselves with water next.  Justin MooreLuke Bryan and Lee Brice are among the other stars dousing themselves with cold water this week.
