MORGAN WALLEN’s life the past couple of years has been eventful.  In a recent interview he opened up about all of it. The low point was, obviously, during the racial slur controversy.  “It got pretty dark.  I’m a resilient person, and I’m a happy person in general.  But that was a difficult time.  We tried to keep my sights set on better things. I felt if we just stayed true to who I knew I really was, we would come out all right.” And he has, with flying colors.  He’s selling albums and concert tickets while making time to focus on the important things, like family.  “I think I’m happy as I’ve ever been.  I’ve had a lot of success, which doesn’t hurt when it comes to that. I’m in a really good place mentally.  I got my little boy [Indigo Wilder], I got my family.  Everything is good for me right now.  Gratitude is at the top of my vocabulary.”

MIRANDA LAMBERT and her husband Brendan McLoughlin have a happy marriage.  She discussed it in an interview with “People”. She was talking about how she’s learned to slow down and stop pushing herself so hard.  “It’s really about balance of life and work for me right now. I’ve gotten way better at doing that than when I was in my early 20s.  And I’ve learned that I’m so much better of a friend and daughter, wife . . . I’m a better artist.  I’m just better at life when I give myself a little bit of a break.”  Another good thing in Miranda’s life is that her mom Beverly has beaten breast cancer.  She was diagnosed last September, and the family circled around to give her their full support. “She’s been through a whole lot, but she’s doing really well, and she’s ready to roll.  I was able to be with her through the hardest parts.  She’s unstoppable.  She’s just been so strong and positive through the whole thing.”

CHRIS LANE’s fans know that he has an identical twin brother named Cory.  He’s a musician who’s been known to play drums in Chris’s band.  Not only do they look alike, but they sing alike too.  A fan shot video of them both onstage singing “Small Town On It” at one of Chris’s shows.

KELSEA BALLERINI’s fourth album is finished.  She shared a photo of herself somewhere in California, and wrote, “Drove the Pacific Coast Highway and listened to final mixes of my album.  Now I’m going to eat copious amounts of sushi and drown in gratitude for this new chapter we get to share together so soon.”
