Checkin in with Lady A, Jack Ingram and Danny Gokey plus new music in stores this week!

It's Wednesday so that's good news if you're a Lady Antebellum fan- they have a new Webisode up and in it Hillary's on a mission http://ladyantebellum.com/media/videos/webisode-wednesday-episode-95

Danny Gokey was my fav. last year on Idol so I'm excited to see him at Winterblast in 2 weeks! And loving his new song "My Best Days". He may not have written it himself but his connection to the song and one of its writers, Kent Blazy, is so personal it's almost surreal. He says, "The writer of the song, he ended up telling me that he wrote this song after his wife passed away. He said this is the first song that he wrote after she passed away that gave him hope again." If you don't remember Danny's background from Idol, his own wife, Sophia, died from complications arising during heart surgery four weeks before his AI audition. His debut CD, My Best Days, hit stores yesterday.

Jack Ingram is itching to start his Australian tour since his CMC (Country Music Channel) show, Rollin' with Jack Ingram, was one of the most watched shows on the Aussie network last month. He says, "I hear that Australians love their music, love their beer and love to have a real good time. I think we're going to have a lot in common." Jack's first show Down Under is Saturday in Sydney.

New music hit stores this week including Blake Shelton's new 6 song CD, Hillbilly Bone. Easton Corbin released his self-titled debut with "I'm A Little More Country Than That" on it. And Luke Bryan released a three-song EP called Spring Break Two: Hangover Edition. It's available exclusively through iTunes. The three songs -- "Wild Weekend," "Cold Beer Drinker" and "I'm Hungover" -- are all written by Luke and sound like he wrote them after either having a good time...or watching "The Hangover"
