#HotCountrySkinny for Friday the 13th!!

Trisha Yearwood is getting in the Halloween spirit a little early this year for an upcoming episode of Trisha’s

Kitchen and you have to see her spot-on ’90s Garth Brooks costume! Yearwood has undergone quite the transformation to get into character, wearing her husband’s signature black and white checkered shirt that he wore for the cover of his 1992 album The Chase, along with his black cowboy hat, wireless mic headpiece and giant gold belt buckle. Oh, and how about that fake beard she’s rocking?!

Miss Yearwood’s friend Glenda Lou also got in on the fun, dressing up as Yearwood in a big, curly blonde wig and tan jacket. “I think we’re going to have an amazing Halloween,” Lou says to her friend, both giggling over their new looks. The costumes will appear on Saturday’s (Oct. 14) episode of Trisha’s Kitchen. Don’t worry, Yearwood’s costume already got Brooks’ seal of approval. “So @GarthBrooks says Saturday is his favorite episode of #TrishasKitchen yet … can you blame him?” she writes on Twitter.


When JON PARDI first started out, he played to five people at a Toby Keith bar in Dallas.  And three of them were his family. PARDI is headlining this year’s CMT On Tour, which kicked-off last night in Birmingham, Alabama.  As you know, the tour’s been going strong since 2002, so the best part is the built-in audience . . . no matter who’s on the show, something that Jon finds reassuring!!


LEE BRICE refused to use computer tricks and artificial sounds on his new album . . . because he wanted it to be real. He went old school while recording his self-titled new album, which is out November 3rd.  He wanted the sound to be real and full of emotion, and he felt the best way to do that would be to simplify. BRICE refused to use computer tricks and artificial sounds on his new album.


ERIC CHURCH makes music for his fans, not the critics, so it makes no sense to him that the critics get their hands on the music before the people who are going to buy it.Quote, “When you make a new record, critics are the mouthpiece to say, ‘Hey, go buy this record’ . . . and that’s so backwards to me.  Your biggest mouthpiece is the fans.”


DIERKS BENTLEY released the video to his song “Hold The Light”.  It’s from the soundtrack to “Only The Brave”, a movie about California’s wildfire firefighters that hits theaters next week.


Friends and associates of the group Midland packed the main room at the Sutler restaurant and bar in Nashville Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 11) to celebrate the success of Midland’s first single, “Drinkin’ Problem.”


Kelsea Ballerini will always be Knoxville, Tennessee’s hometown honey!

The 24-year-old country superstar is teaming up with The Tennessee Department of Tourist Development for a unique concert experience in her hometown of Knoxville on Oct. 28 as a part of Tennessee Tourism’s Snapchat Concert Series and their ongoing “The Soundtrack of America.


Guess who will NEVER -EVER retire?

GARTH BROOKS used to make news for retiring, and un-retiring . . . but those days are over.  Completely.  He now says, “you’re gonna have to throw me out now.” Garth also wants you to know that artists who whine about touring are full of it.  Quote, “If anybody sits up here and tells you that touring is working for a living, they’re lying to you.  It’s the sweetest, easiest thing I’ve ever got to do.” Garth Brooks, Maren Morris and Sam Hunt are among the country artists nominated at the 2017 American Music Awards. Nominees were revealed Thursday morning (Oct. 12). The 2017 American Music Awards will air live on ABC on Nov. 19. The ceremony will run from 8PM ET until 11PM ET. This and more coming up on the #HotCountrySkinny 8:40 am and 4:40pm weekdays.
