Luke Bryan held a press conference at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena yesterday morning to announce the second leg of his headlining "That's My Kind of Night Tour." And what made this announcement truly special is that the new leg of the tour will bring Bryan to his first-ever headlining stadium shows this summer. The second leg of the tour will kick off on May 3 in Vancouver, British Columbia and will run through October. Dierks Bentley has been announced as a special guest on two of the stadium shows and opening acts for all dates on the 2014 "That's My Kind of Night Tour" are Cole Swindell and Lee Brice.
Justin Moore and his wife, Kate, have announced that they are expecting their third child this summer! Justin tells People, "We are so blessed that God has given us this gift for the third time." The summer arrival will join older sisters Kennedy Faye and Ella Kole, and Moore admits that everyone is hoping the family's newest addition will be a boy. Moore jokes, "Ella and Kennedy want a brother and so do I!" But Justin says that he'll be just as excited if the new baby is a girl. He shares, "As long as we have another healthy child, we will be happy regardless."

Last week, the third and final leg of Keith Urban's headlining "Light The Fuse Tour" got underway with Little Big Town returning as one of the opening acts. LBT was a special guest on the "Light The Fuse Tour" all of last year, but that wasn't the first time the group joined Keith on the road. In 2006, Little Big Town joined Urban on his headlining "Still Alive in 06 Tour," and the band will never forget the first time they took the stage on the trek. Jimi Westbrook told CMT that the band worried there wouldn’t be enough time for them to have a sound check. But that’s when Keith stepped in and saved the day. He had his people hold off on open the doors to the fans for another 10 minutes. So that’s why concerts never start on time…
