Let’s say Carly Pearce is in town for a concert, and, believe it or not . . .  she’s at your gym, taking the SAME class as you.  If you’re like most decent people, you wait until after the class to ask for an autograph. But here’s a surprise.  She probably already saw YOU working out, and was secretly trying to do better.  She takes interval-based training classes at Orange Theory Fitness, and they have locations all over the country.  In a recent interview she was asked if she notices other students looking at her.  Quote, “They definitely recognize me.  It’s kind of funny.  But, you know, it’s all part of it, and at least we’re all sweaty together. “They’re all really sweet and usually wait until after class.  I’m not really sure if they’re competitive with me, but I know I’m freakin’ competitive, so I’m competitive with all them and I don’t even know ’em.”

Shania Twain’s new song “Waking Up Dreaming” is out Friday, and she posted a tease on TikTok.  The video starts with a young Shania playing guitar, and then it cuts to a clip of her kicking it into gear on stage.  That’s followed by one scene after another of her amazing career. 

 Kane Brown is being honored next month by the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.  He’s this year’s recipient of the Champion of Youth Award.  Last year Kane donated $100,000 and helped with facility upgrades.  And this summer he surprised teens in Nashville and signed autographs

Eric Gunderson from Love and Theft says that before he got sober, his addiction to alcohol was so bad, his organs almost started to shut down.  He tried to quit drinking, but relapsed six months later and then quit again.  Thankfully, that one stuck, and he hasn’t had a drink in almost seven years.  

When 32-year-old singer-songwriter Luke Bell was found dead last month, there was no word on a cause of death.  Now the autopsy is out, and it was an accidental fentanyl overdose. Luke was reportedly found in a shaded area of a parking lot, with drug paraphernalia nearby.

It’s a good thing Chase Rice owns a lot of acreage, because his pets need it.  CMT’s “Hot 20” visited his Nashville farm . . . and when he opened a bag of feed, his herd of bison came trotting in for lunch. He said, quote, “During quarantine I had all this land, but I…
