Have you updated your summer playlist?  Country Now did a list of the “Best Country Songs of Summer 2022.” 

1.  “Like I Love Country Music”, Kane Brown

2.  “Summer on Your Lips”, Conner Smith

3.  “Party Mode”, Dustin Lynch

4.  “Summer State of Mind”, Lady A

5.  “Beach Boys”, LoCash

6.  “5 Foot 9”, Tyler Hubbard

7.  “You Proof”, Morgan Wallen

8.  “The Kind of Love We Make”, Luke Combs

I’m guessing LUKE COMBS didn’t get a lot of sleep on Father’s Day.  That’s when his wife Nicole gave birth to their baby boy.  He posted a photo yesterday and wrote, “[We] are over the moon in love with this little guy.  Mama and baby are healthy, and we’re back home now with family.  Life is good.  Everyone welcome Tex Lawrence Combs to the world.”

CARRIE UNDERWOOD’s “Before He Cheats” seems to be getting a HUGE boost now, thanks to the Netflix teen vampire drama, “First Kill”.  The song is featured on the show and its soundtrack.  

SCOTTY MCCREERY and his wife Gabi are having a baby boy.  It’ll be their first child together.  They found out earlier this year, but decided to wait before announcing it.  They were married in 2018.

“Live at the Opry” has released video of KEITH URBAN performing “God Whispered Your Name”.  It’s from his April 22nd show at the Grand Ole Opry.

CONNER SMITH was asked what it was like opening for Thomas Rhett, “[His] catering is unbelievable.  It’s like a non-stop amazing pantry that you can get what you want whenever.  They had every tea imaginable.  I think they had some Dr. Pepper ribs one night that were phenomenal.  It was high quality stuff.”

DYLAN SCOTT announced the dates of his Amen to That Tour.  It kicks off September 28th in Los Angeles . . . and wraps November 5th in Little Rock, Arkansas.  ERIN KINSEY and LILY ROSE will open select shows.  You’ll find the details on Dylan’s Twitter.

Remember that Applebee’s Gold Card that WALKER HAYES and his wife Laney were embarrassed about?  Walker confirmed that it gets him free meals for the rest of his life. 

KEVIN HART is opening a pair of vegan restaurants in L.A.

ROB GRONKOWSKI announced he’s retiring. 

“Top Gun: Maverick” has passed the $900 million mark
