Mayim Bialik says a “Blossom” reboot may happen, but as a drama, not a sitcom.  Quote, “We want to bring back these interesting, deep characters . . . to see them in a whole new way.”

Bruce Springsteen’s tour rider calls for six bottles of “quality beer” that are, quote, “not Budweiser.”  He also needs a manicurist who can do, quote, “a man’s and a woman’s acrylic nail work.”

There was a rumor going around that Kelsea Ballerini lip synced while performing “Mountain with a View” at the “People’s Choice Country Awards”.  Well, it’s not true. She posted a video of herself joking about it AND explaining what happened.  Quote, “I just want to say, if I was lip-synching, I would’ve sounded a lot better.  One of the cameras was off.  Thank you, and good night.” She also reshared a photo from that night showing her looking slyly at something off camera.  She wrote, “Me singing live watching people thinking otherwise.”NBC had her back too.  They posted a clip of her performing the song on the show . . . and they captioned it, “Flawless glitch-free performance.  Nobody does live vocals like her.”

Eric Church did an interview with “Esquire”, and the subject of political country songs came up.  Mostly because of how popular “Rich Men North of Richmond” and “Try That in a Small Town” have been. Eric’s take might surprise you.  Quote, “It’ll define this era, but the era’s fleeting and that [sh*t] doesn’t last.  Right now, especially in a political season, people try to use whatever weapon they can to motivate whatever side they’re on.” He says political songs grab everybody’s attention, but it’s a short attention span.  Quote, “[I] just think that stuff’s gonna fall away and the really good music [will] be what we remember twenty years from now.  “I don’t think a song that becomes popular or not popular because of whatever political aspirations the consumer has is really going to matter.”

If you believe in the power of prayer, then you have something in common with Thomas Rhett.  A fan at his concert on Saturday had a medical emergency, so Thomas paused the show and led the entire crowd in prayer. Somebody posted a video that starts after the fan had been taken away.  Thomas is sitting on the edge of the stage near some people who are visibly upset.  They’re all praying for the man, whose name is Terry.

Parker McCollum brought a little boy up to the stage recently to help him sing “Hell of a Year”.  He changed it to “Heck of a Year”, which was cute . . . and so was the kid, although he was too shy to do much singing.
