Jerrod Niemann, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan news and more!

Can't get Jerrod Niemann's song "Lover Lover" out of your head? That was his plan! He says, "It was a remake of a song that Sonia Dada put out in '93 and that song, literally, has been stuck in my head since I was a kid. So I was hoping that I could attempt to torture everybody else the way that that song has tortured me."

Brad Paisley will release his first official greatest hits collection on November 2nd. The double album, Hits Alive, will feature his one disc studio versions of his hits, while the second disc will feature previously unreleased songs and songs that were recorded live while on tour.

Don't be surprised if you see Carrie Underwood in the grocery store- she says she doesn't eat anything unless she knows what's in it so she likes to do her own shopping...“It’s a very human thing to do, and that’s why I love it so much. When you’re out on the road, people see you as a performer – not necessarily as a human being, first and foremost. So it’s really nice to go and do things that… people do! I always hear, ‘You shop yourself?’ I would hate to see the day when someone else had to buy my groceries for me!”

Set your DVR’s for Monday, August 9th because, Luke Bryan, will be performing "Rain is a Good Thing" on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Jaron of Jaron and the Long Road to Love is currently in the midst of opening a string of dates for Trace Adkins and Toby Keith on the American Ride tour and he decided to pull a prank on Toby's guys but it didn't go quite as planned. "I wanted to go mess with the production guys," Jaron explains with a smile. "Their room was next to mine. So I pulled down my pants from my room, and I was walking with my pants around my ankles. I walked [into their room], and I was going to ask them, 'Hey does Toby sell hot pants because it's so hot ... I just wanted to get some shorts.'" Too bad when he waddled into the room with his pants around his ankles, he looks up to see fellow tourmate Trace Adkins. "The production manager goes, 'Hey Jaron, have you met Trace?' I hadn't at that point. So I turn around, and Trace was standing there. He gives me that smirk, like, 'You're an idiot.' I was [thinking], 'Uhh ... yeah, I kind of am.' That prank went back on me real fast. I pulled up my pants, and I was like, 'Nice to meet you, sir ...'" Gotta say, walking around with your pants around your ankles is a terrible prank in the first place...no somehow pulling Trace's pants down while he's on stage. Now THAT's a prank!

Craig Morgan is good friends with Blake Shelton so he knows what Miranda Lambert is in for once they get married. "Man, I just wish Miranda luck," Craig says with a laugh. "It ain't about Blake. I don't know what she's thinking. She could do so much better. I really question that. I mean, it's Miranda Lambert. What would make her choose Blake Shelton?...You don't wish them luck, you wish her luck. Good luck, honey." Another couple Craig is familiar with- Carrie Underwood and her new husband Mike Fisher after he spent the first half of this year out on the road with the recent newlywed. Carrie says about Craig…"We're a lot alike," He's a great guy. He's so normal. If you ran into him in a grocery store, and started having a conversation over the last bottle of ketchup, you'd never know that he was a country music star. You would never know it, because he's just the most normal guy. He loves his family. He loves his wife and his kids, and we've talked marriage and stuff like that ... He's being really encouraging and saying it's the best thing. I know he told Mike to 'listen to the woman,' ... 'do what she says.' Everything is so positive.

"She is such a sweet girl," Craig says, She and I both are obsessive-compulsive, attention-deficit, so we had a lot in common, we really do. [laughs] I'm grateful that she said that”
