Three-day weekends are the best.
Unless, you know, you’re too busy to stay connected to country music and the people who make it. Here’s what happened last weekend, besides Labor Day and CMA nominations.
Jason Aldean prepped his son’s rustic nursery and revealed his name, Maren Morris watched a 2003 Hilary Duff movie backstage, Faith Hill took in some Chicago sights, Dierks Bentley’s alter ego was kind of a grasshole, Miranda Lambert revealed the best part of waking up is Folgers and Baileys in her cup, Kelsea Ballerini called dibs — over and over — on Morgan Evans, Luke Bryan took his son Tate peanut picking, and Blake Shelton shared a way, way, way back throwback picture of him and country singer Andy Griggs sharing a hotel room.
Jason Aldean: “We finally got our lil man’s room ready for him. Can’t wait to meet you and bring you home to ur new room, Memphis.”
