  • Luke Bryan’s Niece Sadie Brett Passes Away
    The staff of NashvilleGab is extending our deepest condolences to Luke Bryan, his wife Caroline and the entire Boyer family with the passing of Sadie Brett Boyer.

According to Nash Country Daily, the baby was born with a congenital heart defect and passed away this morning. Bryan took to Twitter this afternoon to thank fans for their support. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bryan and Boyer families during this difficult time.(Visited 2 times, 2 visits... Read more »
  • Eric Church Continues His Fight Against Ticket Scalpers
      We previously reported that country megastar Eric Church was taking matters into his own hands when it comes to combating ticket scalpers. Well, Church has taken a huge leap in his fight, reportedly canceling more than 25,000 tickets that were purchased and placed back online for resale by scalpers for his upcoming tour. Church explained his thoughts on the widespread issue to The Associated Press. They buy thousands of tickets across the U.S., not just mine, and they end up making a fortune. They use fake credit cards, fake IDs. All of this is fraud. We’re getting better at identifying who the... Read more »
  • Thomas Rhett & Lauren Akins Share Baby Gender Reveal Moment
    Thomas Rhett and wife Lauren Akins announced earlier this week that they are expecting their first child — while simultaneously preparing to adopt another. The couple later teased that they had an envelope containing the gender of their baby, but neither was looking and wanted it to be a surprise. Today, the pair, surrounded by family, cut into a cake that would be either pink or blue to represent the gender of Baby Akins. What did the Akins family find out when T. Rhett cut the cake? Find out in this adorably exciting video and caption below! 🎀💗🎀💗🎀 **sorry our... Read more »

  • Ashliegh Lisset Says “Goodbye” with New Song
    Following some major success on Sirius XM The Highway with her single “Kill the Lights,” Ashliegh Lisset is back to say “Goodbye” to someone who, frankly, needed to go. With the cleverly penned “Goodbye” — another notch on the belt of Kelsea Ballerini, written with Jennifer Denmark and Matt Alderman — Lisset bids farewell to a guy, confidently calling it a “good bye.” Having the slick beat and the catchy lyrics that are common in a Ballerini hit, Lisset’s new release provides her with another radio-friendly tune that will open Nashville’s ears to the native Texan with Tennessee dreams. Listen to “Goodbye” below... Read more »
  • Thomas Rhett & Lauren Akins Are Doubling the Love In Their Family
    Huge news came from the Akins home this morning, as Thomas Rhett’s wife, Lauren Akins, shared what is coming next for one of our favorite couples to follow. The adorable husband and wife, who have been together since they were teenagers, announced that they are expecting — in more ways than one!

OH BABY! 😍 actually…BABIES! Our hearts are exploding with happiness for y’all to... Read more »
  • RaeLynn’s Husband Josh Davis Enlists in the Military
    Just shy of her one year wedding anniversary with Josh Davis, RaeLynn has revealed big news about her hubby. She took to social media to share that Josh has enlisted in the military, and that she couldn’t be more proud. RaeLynn writes: IMPORTANT: My husband has always supported me in everything that I’ve wanted to do, yesterday began a new adventure for us. Joshua left for basic training to serve in our military and serve his Country. Saying I’m proud doesn’t scratch the surface of how I feel. I love his heart and the man that he is more and...

  • Lindsay Ell Spreads Love This Valentine’s Day (Watch!)
    Is it possible to win Valentine’s Day? If so, we are pretty sure Lindsay Ell has accomplished that this year. The All Alright singer and master multi-instrumentalist shared a video of herself buying several heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, but it wasn’t that economically supportive gesture that makes her champion. Instead, it was what she chose to do with those boxes on a cold, rainy day in Nashville to spread a little love to those who most certainly don’t get praised enough. Making her rounds to several police stations in Music City, Ell shook the hands of first responders, offered hugs of... Read more »
  • Craig Campbell & Daughter Preslee Cover ZAYN feat. Taylor Swift
    BBR Music Group artist Craig Campbell typically flies solo in his musical career, but he has been known to make an exception here and there for his daughter, Preslee. The two decided to musically reunite and collaborate this Valentine’s Day to give fans a special gift, performing “I Don’t Want to Live Forever” by ZAYN feat. Taylor Swift. The song has already taken the world by storm, immediately following its release from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, but you have yet to hear it quite like this. Watch the Campbells perform — in their pajamas and sunglasses — in this adorable daddy/daughter video...

  • Sarah Darling’s “Dream Country” Is a Dream Come True for Country Fans
    Sarah Darling has often been compared to an angel over her many years as a country music singer and songwriter. Not only is this artist a true, natural beauty, but her vocals are in a class of their own, pure and pristine, delivered as delicately as little drops of rain from the heavens. Perhaps that is why the title Dream Country is so spot on for Darling, a singer with the ability to transport listeners into a peaceful, calm, dream-like state simply by sharing her talent. The eleven-track (ten songs plus one radio edit) project, which was the product of a... Read more »
