What song did Miranda Lambert steal from Blake? Clay Walker loss from the Nashville floods. Plus, Tube Check and Tonight's Tweets

Miranda Lambert almost did record her latest song, "The House That Built Me," because her boyfriend Blake Shelton was going to instead. Once Miranda heard it though, she knew she had to have it. She tells the Associated Press, "It was beautiful. I mean, I just started bawling from the second I heard it. He was like, 'If you have a reaction to this song like that, then you need to cut it.'"

If you missed Miranda on Extreme Makeover Home Edition last night- check out the episode here. This one touched me even more than normally since my nephew has the same genetic condition, Prader-Willi Syndrome, as the little boy in the episode.

Tube Check: Tomorrow Luke Bryan will be on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Keith Urban will be on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon during his "Rolling Stones week"

Tim and Faith will host an all-star benefit concert for Tennessee flood relief June 22 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. Proceeds from Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert For Flood Recovery go to The Community Foundation Of Middle Tennessee. Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Amy Grant, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Michael W. Smith will perform. Tickets and VIP packages go on sale Friday (5/14) at

Toby Keith is currently on a USO Tour and while visiting the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, he posted an unusual experience he had on Twitter. Toby said, "Soldiers on both sides stand few feet apart -- stare motionless for hrs -- daring the other 2 challenge. I walked right between. Creepy!" Toby tweeted. "W/o question -- after 145 USO shows -- most bizarre behavior by 2 enemies I've ever witnessed."

Taylor Swift and Julianne Hough made it onto Maxim's Hot 100 list for 2010. Taylor checked in at number 31, while Julianne took the number 45 spot on the list. Katy Perry topped the list.

Good news from Nashville. With the recent floods hitting the Grand Ol Opry many worried about the legendary six-foot circle of wood that was cut from the stage of the Ryman Auditorium -- the original home of the Opry -- and built into the stage of the current Opry House...Well, word has it that it has been spared from damage. It's on that circle that country music's royalty has performed throughout the course of the radio show's history.

But bad news for Clay Walker whose horse, Penny, went missing during the floods. Clay tweeted tonight "wanted to let our concerned fans no we finally found Penny in a pile of debris..she didn't make it but she fought hard..thanks 4 the prayers"
