Zach Bryan’s Twitter account mysteriously disappeared on Monday, and nobody knows why.  This is a guy who loves Tweeting out his opinions and hot takes, so everyone’s very confused. Some are wondering if his account got hacked, but we would’ve heard something by now.  He could be pulling a Taylor Swift, who wiped her social media before rolling out new music a few years ago. There’s even a theory that Elon Musk cancelled it over some lame verification checkmark excuse.  That could be based on the fact that his Instagram and Facebook accounts are still up. Whatever the reason, the timing is weird because he’s got a lot going on.  “Something in the Orange” is a massive hit . . . his Burn, Burn, Burn tour is about to start . . . and his beloved Philadelphia Eagles are in the Super Bowl. That said, maybe we’re all just overreacting because he did deactivate it for a couple of days back in July.  By the way, Billboard reached out to one of his reps, but they “declined to comment”.

Carrie Underwood’s tour last year had the smallest carbon footprint of any major country star, according to a recent report. It looked at how much CO2 got pumped into the air from tour busses and flights.  And Carrie’s tour did better than the other 14 artists they looked at. Kane Brown’s tour created the MOST emissions, according to the study . . . about four times as much pollution as Carrie’s tour. After Kane, Zach Bryan and Morgan Wallen’s tours were the worst.  Carrie did the best, followed by Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert. In general though, country tours did better than most music genres.  Tours by EDM, hip-hop, and pop artists pumped out the most greenhouse gases, on average. The only genre that did better than country was classic rock.

Kelsea Ballerini posted a series of photos of her time in L.A. for the Grammys.  One of them shows her with Taylor Swift and Fletcher.  Kelsea and Taylor are old friends, so fans are hoping for a collaboration.  Kelsea and Fletcher recently released a song called “Better Together”.

Luke Combs is putting out his new album “Gettin’ Old” on March 24th, and yesterday he unveiled the track list.  He had a hand in writing most of the tracks, but it also includes his cover of the Tracy Chapman classic “Fast Car”, which he’s been performing live.  A lot of fans are stoked about that.

Remember last month when Jon Pardi’s wife Summer shared that nude pregnancy photo?  She’s at it again.  This time it’s a montage of pics.  There are photos with Jon, but most are her alone, sometimes dressed, sometimes not.  She’s due to give birth to their first child any day now.

Trace Adkins has announced the dates of his Somewhere In America tour.  It kicks off Friday in Lancaster, Pennsylvania . . . and there are shows each month through October.  Chances are more dates will be added.

Over a THIRD of the songs on Billboard Hot 100 there right now are Morgan Wallen’s. Morgan’s album “One Thing at a Time” came out this month, and ALL 36 songs are now on the Hot 100 list.  That’s a new record, and not just for country artists.  This only happens when a huge artist…

Are you a TRUE country fan?  Not unless you have a really good memory, I guess.  “Taste of Country” posted a huge list of the, quote, “country music singalongs” that “every country fan should know by heart”.  A lot of them are classics, like “Friends in Low Places” . . . “On the Road Again”…
