Carrie's honeymoon plans, Blake's next CD and Luke's new addition to the family

Carrie Underwood is leaving the details of her impending nuptials to a professional wedding planner and the details of her honeymoon to her fiance. In fact, she doesn't know any details about the honeymoon. She says, "I don't know where it is. It's a surprise. That was Mike's project, and I have no clue where we're going, which is nice. I know it'll be warm. That's about it." So what do you get a rich couple as a wedding gift? Turns out, their wedding guests won't have to worry about that. "We really didn't register, because we just want people there," says Carrie. "The basics are always nice, a nice wine or something. We can write your name on it when you come over for dinner. We break it out, but we just want people there. That's the best gift."

Blake Shelton has a wedding in the works too...and a new CD. Even though he just released "Six Pack" three months ago, he's getting ready to give you more music! It's a new concept -- releasing six songs on one CD at a time, instead of waiting for a full album. The first one worked out pretty well for Blake, 'Six Pak' debuted at No. 3 on the multi-genre Billboard 200 chart and No. 2 on the Country Albums chart. Blake says, "Nashville has been looking for ways to try to get people back into the stores and buy albums again. You hear a song on the radio these days, and you just pull out your phone and buy it off the Internet right then, and you forget about it. We're looking for ways to remind people that we still make albums, and there's still cool music that you may or may not hear on the radio. So we decided to do a six-song album, and it's really cheap! It's like five dollars and change."

The next 'Six Pak,' scheduled for an August 10 release date will have "All About Tonight" on it.

Luke Bryan just took home a CMT Award and pretty soon he's going to be bringing home a new addition to his family. He and his wife are expecting their second son and he just let us in on what they will name him...Tatum Christopher. "Tatum is a guy from my hometown, and then my brother's name was Chris," Luke explains. Tatum is due in August and will join big brother Bo.
