LUKE COMBS has set a new “Billboard” record by having his FIRST five singles reach Number One on the Country Airplay chart. It all started with “Hurricane” back in 2017. That was followed-up by “When It Rains It Pours”, “One Number Away”, “She Got the Best of Me” . . . and “Beautiful Crazy”, which is there right now. He passed some big names along the way.  Brooks & Dunn and Florida Georgia Line each started their careers with four #1 singles in a row.

 

KIP MOORE’s Audience Network concert special airs this Friday on Direct TV and AT&T. (It was recorded in L.A. back in November.)  They released a promo from the show where he says, “I told myself a long time ago [that] if I stayed authentic to my soul, that was the only way I was going to be able to lay my head on my pillow at night.  I knew I had to truly dedicate myself to that. “I was okay with failing and doing it my way, but I’m not okay with failing and listening to somebody else tell me how to do it.”

Carrie Underwood’s Brentwood, Tennessee, estate is now listed for $1.45 million. An insider said that the singer and her husband, Mike Fisher, were looking to move to another home in the Nashville area.  The source said, “They’ve been having a lot of issues with neighbors letting people in the community to look around and it all escalated after the fall.”  The four-bedroom Italian-style villa has a covered back porch, an open-concept kitchen and massive master suite among other features.

Cadbury is retiring the “Clucking Bunny” after 35 years and is giving a lucky pet the chance to star in a new version of the ad.
