It was a little rough coming out of our 4th of July coma, but it helped that when we did get our bearings, the country stars were there with a weekend full of social media posts to keep us connected to their lives on and off the stage.
Maren Morris got July off to a heated start when someone tried to make her lose her halo, and she was not having it. Luke Bryan celebrated his cigariversary. Luke Combs had the literal coolest moment with Willie Nelson. Ashley McBryde wondered out loud who decided that women should all be skinny and flawless. Kelsea Ballerini was in Greece, and declared herself 98 percent feta. (Caption FTW, amiright?) Carly Pearce scheduled herself a weekend tour stop at her very first venue, her mom’s house. Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany shared a picture of her good-looking husband. Thomas Rhett shared pictures of his good-looking wife. Kane Brown shared a picture of his good-looking self from years and years ago. And Old Dominion shared a realistic glimpse of the randomness of tour bus life.
Hate to break it to you, Bailey, but she’s here for the long haul to make more “disgusting” music videos about self-acceptance and mental care. Gross!✌ https://t.co/ykr6llZ2gw

I dunno who decided to teach young girls that being skinny and photoshop-perfect is more important than being intelligent or talented or strong. But if I find out Imma kick em in the teeth. #youdecideyourworth #gogetemgirls

Haven’t had a long weekend off in the summer in the last few years, so I’m really grateful for this time off with my mama. In the world I live in, I without questioning say “yes” to spending 90% of my time on the road away from the ones I love. This year, I’ve tried really hard to start being more intentional about giving myself grace & accepting that saying “yes” to pouring into my family and friends & taking a little “me” time is not a bad thing. We laughed, talked about how all the dreams I had as a child are coming true, reminisced on so many memories & talked about how lucky I am to be marrying the man of my dreams so soon. Mom, I love you so much & I’ll always be your little girl.
