If you missed Carrie Underwood on the Today show this morning she did "Cowboy Casanova," " Before He Cheats" and " Undo It."

My husband's working with kids at his hockey school, and I'm here."

Here are the videos of her performances:

Josh expecting, Dierks on Late Night, Toby goes Raw, CD Release dates and Tonight's Tweets

Another congratulations going out! Dierks Bentley just announced he and wife Cassidy are expecting another baby and now Josh Turner is following suit! Josh and wife Jennifer are expecting baby number 3! Josh talked to People magazine about it saying that his father's intuition kicked in. After going through two pregnancies with his wife he knew she was acting "a little different" he encouraged her to take a pregnancy test. "She did and it was negative, but I refused to believe it. So when she took another and told me she's pregnant, all I could say was, 'I told you!' and she was floored." Baby #3 is due early next year. Read the rest of the story here

Tube Check: Dierks Bentley will perform “Fallin’ For You” on the Late Show with David Letterman tomorrow (Tues., July 27) and then Wednesday he's stopping by the Late Show with Jimmy Fallon to play “Draw Me A Map.”

Toby Keith is going raw! World Wrestling Entertainment has announced Toby Keith will guest host Raw on October 25.

Wynonna Judd, her daughter Grace and her tour manager were hospitalized after being involved in a head-on car crash last Wednesday in Salt Lake City, Utah. Though no details of the injuries have been released, Wy did tell talk to the Lake Tahoe Daily Tribune saying, "It's a miracle that I'm alive. I was in a major head-on collision (Wednesday) and they didn't want to let me out of the hospital. I said, 'Listen ... I've got to go do a show.' The guys were like, 'If anybody can Wynonna, it's you. You've shown us that you have quite the spunk.' Wyonna responded, "Listen, I've spent 10 years on a bus with my mother. If I can do that I can do anything!'"

We have a release date for "Country Song", the latest movie starring Tim McGraw. It will open in theaters on December 22nd. The movie filmed many scenes in Nashville and also stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Leighton Meester. Tim plays Gwyneth’s husband and manager in the film as she struggles with a music career.

The Los Angeles Daily News sat down with Keith Urban to talk music and songwriting, but inevitably ended-up talking about his 2 year old daughter, Sunday Rose. Apparently she is taking after her musician dad already. Keith said she loves humming “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” to Sunday. She hits those intervals just right every time. I think that’s a good sign that she’s got a good ear.”

Eric Church makes you say "awww!", Miranda rants on Twitter and a video from Joe

Aww this is SO sweet! When Eric Church stumbled upon two lost cats last week, he didn't expect them to hijack his website. They wrote, "Hi, I'm Jesse Colter and this is my mama June Carter. I'm around four or five months old and June is around a year old ... We are looking for a loving home to start a new life together."
Eric found that cats while jogging in North Carolina, and made it his mission to find them a good home. To see a picture and find out what happened to Jesse and June, check out Eric's website http://ericchurch.com/index.htm?inc=5&news_id=18607

Miranda Lambert took to Twitter today to rant about a bad interview saying, "The ? From my interview with mr negative this am....why are u an Blake gettig married anyway? My answer...if u were not so rude and ignorant and stuck on urself, perhaps a girl would talk to u and maybe even U could fall n love....but u are all of those things so stop taking ur sad life out on happy people. I Always think of a good comeback like 30 second to late. Thank God for Twitter"

If you missed Joe Nichols' performance on Fox and Friends this a.m. Here ya go!

Are the Montgomery Gentry guys slowing down?! They are known as much for their rough and rowdy ways as they were for their hit music. But now it seems the rock 'n roll lifestyle might finally be catching up with the boys. "In the words of Hank [Williams, Jr.], 'the hangovers hurt more than they used to,'" Troy admits [quote via Country Music Is Love]. "I'm not quite the partier I used to be. I got protein powders and supplements and vitamins and everything sitting around. I've swapped the vodka and the wine out for vitamins and supplements these days. Got a bunch of the colorings and pictures from my little girl -- all of her little art work she does when she's out on the bus -- hung up on the refrigerators and on the windows and everything. It's more like home than it is the local neighborhood bar and pub."

"Yeah, we don't run quite as hard as we used to," adds Eddie. "It takes too many days to get over it."

Looks like even Ryan Seacrest's girlfriend Julianne Hough thought he was gay! According to TMZ Julianne was in N.C. for her birthday dinner at a Morton's steak house the other night with a bunch of friends ... and at one point during the meal, she was asked, "How did you and Ryan get together?" Julianne responded, "He was after me since I was 18 ... he totally wasn't my type ... I thought he was gay." But Hough continued, "After a few years, he was persistent ... so I went out with him on a date and I realized how much I liked him." We're told Ryan and Julianne have been together for a couple of months.

Joe Nichols will be on Fox and Friends tomorrow morning to promote The Boot Campaign. The Boot Campaign acts as a way to help show support for combat veterans in a unique and accessible way.

Visit www.BootCampaign.com for the chance to show support by purchasing a pair of boots.

James Otto is just a few weeks away from becoming a daddy. He and his wife Amy are expecting a daughter at the end of August. James admits he was hoping to have a boy, so he didn't have to worry about his little girl dating someday. He writes on Twitter, "A warning to all boys that will date my daughter. Whatever you do to her when y'all go out I'll do to you when you get home."

Faith Hill has a new perfume available called "True." The fragrance has hints of citrus and flowers with a woody base.

More than 59,000 viewers logged on as Taylor Swift chatted yesterday about her third album Speak Now, which hits stores Oct. 25. Swift wrote all the songs on the collection and recorded most of the record in producer Nathan Chapman's basement. The wedding pictures we have been seeing of Taylor are for the first single called “Mine”. The song is about her tendency to run from love and will be released in mid-August. Taylor says each song on the new album is a “confession” of sorts to someone different in her life.

Reba McEntire is releasing a second album with her new record label, The Valory Music Co., on Nov. 9. You've already heard the first song from it, “Turn on the Radio,” on The Eagle and it will be available on iTunes Aug. 3. "I fell for the song immediately," Reba said in a release. "I love that it’s an up-tempo, strong woman song about a woman who has been done wrong by her lover and is telling him to turn on the radio if he wants to hear from her through their favorite song.”

Keith Urban's new duo, Trace lands a role and Carrie goes acoustic

Trace Adkins has joined the cast of a new movie, The Lincoln Lawyer, which will star Matthew McConaughey. Trace says, "[My role] is just a couple of [scenes. I enjoy [acting] if I have time to do it. This is an easy thing to do. It takes literally three days out of my schedule. It's something that I can do and have fun doing." The plot is based on the Michael Connelly novel of the same name. Other actors attached to the film (out next year) are Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillippe, John Leguizamo and William H. Macy.

Carrie Underwood says she might want to change things up a bit on her next tour, "After the whole [ACM] Entertainer of the Year win, I felt like it was time to kind of have more 'wow' moments in the show. And I might follow that up next year with an acoustic tour. That would be just about my favorite thing.”

Keith Urban is recording a version of Roger Miller's "England Swings" with Australian kiddie supergroup The Wiggles. Keith tells the Los Angeles Daily News, "Having a 2-year-old, I'm not going to turn down The Wiggles." Keith says little Sunday Rose loves music and does a killer version of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." He says, "She sings that song all day."

More wedding details from Carrie, David Nail hit's a homer and Tonight's Tweets

People magazine hit statnds today with more details on Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher's wedding. Here are some of the tidbits:

--Carrie surprised Mike by bringing contemporary Christian singer Brandon Heath to perform "Love Never Fails" for their first dance at their wedding.
--The ceremony took place beneath an arbor of birch trees and roses.
--When the groom kissed the bride at the end of the ceremony, Carrie's dog Ace barked like mad.
--The color scheme for the wedding was pink.
--Painted hockey pucks held the guests' table assignments.
--The wedding cake was a cupcake tower.
--For music, Carrie and Mike had a DJ who played everything from Lionel Richie to Guns n' Roses.
--Carrie will be Carrie Fisher in her personal life, but will still use Underwood professionally -- perhaps to avoid confusion with "Princess Leia."

Unfortunately, not all weddings end with a happy marriage. Sara Evans 1st husband is back in the news...Craig Schelske has filed papers in a Tennessee court to re-structure his custody agreement, saying that he wants his kids with him six months at a time. According to my guilty pleasure website, TMZ, Schelske claims that Sara's husband, Jay Barker, has been sending him harassing text messages claiming that Satan is controlling his thoughts and actions. Schkelske also says that Sara and Jay trash him in front of the children.

Carrie Underwood wedding and honeymoon details Plus, Tonight's Tweets

Carrie Fisher, aka Carrie Underwood, is spending her honeymoon in the Pacific Ocean off Tahiti with new husband Mike Fisher Monday. The two -- who said "I Do" in a lakeside ceremony near Atlanta over the weekend -- were spotted arriving to their luxe resort sipping cocktails. According to a waiter who worked at her wedding this past Saturday, the ceremony "was gorgeous." The more than 200 guests feasted on "Southern" food and cupcakes. "It was a big party!" added the server. Despite the reported $500,000 price tag, the event was "down to earth... it wasn't really flashy," just like the bride and groom and their pals, none of whom, "had a trace of attitude," the insider said. "Everyone was super friendly." "It wasn't one of those crazy weddings you hear about in Hollywood," another witness told Us. "It was a nice party for a nice couple." Want more details on the wedding and honeymoon. Check these links out http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/b190271_carrie_underwood_shares_wedding_details.html

...I think rap videos made people believe all in the music business are rich. I've been in Nashville 13 years & over 1/2 that at poverty level
...1/2 the writers in Nashville can't get a job anymore because of this. People pay 5 bucks 4 a cup of coffee but not 99 cents 4 a song?

Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert wedding details plus Tonight's Tweets seem to have a theme to them...

Rumors are flying that this is the weekend Carrie Underwood is tying the knot. All the gossip sites are reporting that the wedding will take place at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, in Greensboro, Ga. tomorrow. And even though Carrie joked that Simon Cowell might not be invited because she didn't want him judging her wedding...eonline is reporting that he is on the guest list along with Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Fisher's fellow Ottawa Senators Chris Neil and Chris Phillips. Oh and the price tag for the hotel alone is expected to exceed $268,000 a night. Get more of the gossip here

Miranda Lambert is talking about her upcoming wedding too to Blake Shelton. "It's been so crazy," she says. "We've gotten engaged and we're both out on the road and on tour. But I am starting to do the 'girly' thing and pull pictures of dresses out of magazines. I'm starting to get a vision of what I want the dress to look like. I'm doing a lot of that on the bus and looking online also." Miranda says she wants the wedding to simply be a good time for all. "It's a celebration of two people falling in love," she says. "So, we just want it to be fun."

Luke Bryan's wife has put the brakes on him. He will be part of Sunday’s Ride for the Cure, a Harley ride fund-raiser for the TJ Martell Foundation in Nashville. But he isn't allowed to get on a bike. "I’ve been adamantly instructed by my wife, if I get on a Harley, I’m in big big trouble,” Luke tells Country Weekly, “due to my lack of coordinated-ness, I guess is the way to say it.”

Tonights Tweets:

(check out the theme here- everyone seems to be tweeting about food tonight!)

@JustinColeMoore: It's a fact. Sonic has the greatest food on the planet. Not the best fast food. Best food, period...end of story.

@RandyHouser: It's the weekend! Don't forget to bring along your Randy Houser CD at that BBQ or out on the lake.

@kelliepickler: Just saw a woman driving a lawnmower pull up to a Wendys, park in a parking spot, and go in to eat. And I'm not even in Albemarle (NC)! :)

@ladyantebellum: I love Philly! Just had ice cream at the Franklin Fountain! Such a tourist....-Dave

How's Kenny Chesney spending his summer now that he's not touring? Taylor goes Gaga and who Carrie isn't inviting to her wedding.

Wondering how Kenny Chesney is spending his summer now that he's not doing a tour? Well he is in the final stages of co-producing and co-directing “The Boys of Fall,” a 90 minute documentary on high school football and its impact on the players' lives, featuring many of the biggest names in NFL and college football playing and coaching history. He also has the time now to participate in the ESPYs (he's a presenter on the show July 15th) and a special “Mike & Mike” preshow that leads into the 9 pm broadcast. Sounds like he's having a sports filled summer.

Lady Gaga recently admitted that not only does she love Taylor Swift, but she loves belting out “You Belong With Me” at the top of her lungs. Taylor was pretty excited after hearing this. She told People, “That absolutely made my day when I read that because I’m a huge fan of hers.” She added, “[hearing] that really, really made me smile.”

Will Simon Cowell be among the guests at American Idol alumni Carrie Underwood's upcoming wedding? She's not so sure if that's a good idea. When asked Carrie laughed saying, "I don't know. I don't want him to judge my wedding." Carrie says they are trying to keep the wedding small but they have a lot of people they have to invite.

Blake Shelton is putting out another 6 pack CD August 10th and he just released the track listing. Besides the title track, "All About Tonight," the album includes "Draggin' the River" featuring the future Mrs. Shelton, Miranda Lambert, "Who Are You When I'm Not Looking," "That Thing We Do," "Got a Little Country" and "Suffocating," which was written by Miranda and Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott.

Craig Morgan looses his mom, Chris Young gets schooled by Joe Don and Tonight's Tweets

Sad news for Craig Morgan whose mother, Betty Sue Crockett, died Saturday from pancreatic cancer. Thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this time! Craig sang about the strength of a woman facing cancer in his 2007 number-one hit "Tough." At the time, his wife had just been diagnosed with a pre-cancerous virus. If you're interested, memorials may be made to Center for Pancreatic Cancer research or to Billy's Place (a home to be built for displaced children) c/o Taylor Funeral Home, 214 N. Main St. Dickson, TN 37055.

Another sad part to this story...the obit in the TN paper had to include this line, "With respect the family asks that no cell phones, cameras or videos be present during their visitation and funeral service." Shouldn't that be a given?! I blame Gary Coleman's ex-wife for this!

Kenny Chesney will present at the 18th Annual ESPY Awards July 14 at 9pm ET on ESPN-TV. Will Ferrell, Brooklyn Decker, Chris Berman, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Ashley Greene, Samuel L. Jackson and others are scheduled to appear. Kenny will also be featured during a Mike & Mike pre-show broadcast.

Newly engaged Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs are already hitting some snags in planning their wedding. Kellie writes on Twitter, "So, my fiance and I have come to the conclusion that making "the list" (people to invite to the wedding) is the hardest part so far." So true! And even harder for those of us who aren't rich and famous lol

Chris Young loved his first weekend on the Rascal Flatts tour a week or so ago. The guys all came together a few times to play hoops and although Chris definitely has the height advantage over Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney, that didn’t stop one of the headliners from taking Chris to school. “Joe Don did make a shot over me,” Chris concedes to Country Weekly.
“But to be fair, it was 108-degree heat index and I had played two games already, and he walked in fresh,” Chris explains. “I’m not knockin’ Joe Don’s skills. I’m just sayin’.”

@KevinFowler: Does is make me a redneck if my set list is written on a Tractor Supply flyer? Everybody's pickin' on me for it. http://twitpic.com/23bnmy

@JustinColeMoore: Just saw a buffalo takin a dump. Im a first-timer, so don't mock my excitement...

@leannrimes: Taking a break from twitter for a while. It's unhealthy for me and my family to have to read negative comments from people who's opinions have no bearing on my life. I love my fans so very much and will return one day soon. God bless to you all! I hope you understand. It's time for me to focus on healing, my happiness and my music. I can't wait to share it all with my fans soon!

@ladyantebellum: Go "free fallin'" with Lady A in this week's Webisode Wednesday, Episode 113!! http://bit.ly/dvMHWk

The hit that almost never happened and Tonight's Tweets

Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley recently revealed that the band's biggest hit, 'Need You Now,' might not have become a hit at all if it had been up to him! "This is something that Capitol can hold over our head forever, because we came in there and we showed them all of these songs," Charles told golfer David Feherty in the CBS TV Special, 'Golf Magazine Presents David Feherty's American Journey.' "And I said, 'Well, I've got a couple of other ones, too. I don't think that you're going to think they're that great, but it's worth showing you.' And it was just a little acoustic guitar thing, and everybody's ears perked up, and the engineer came on and they said, 'You need to give that one a shot.' So sure enough we did, and it is our biggest single to date. So we recognize that we don't know everything!"

Tonight's Tweets:

@Miranda_Lambert: Well the reviewer of Lilith Fair hated us and made fun of House That Built Me. I guess it does suck...enough to be a 4 week #1. I win!!

@davidnail: Doing the same here...RT @Miranda_Lambert I'm 3 days sober from fried food. It's a sad breakup but it better for both of us...and my hips!

@EliYoungBand: Twitter world, say hello to Kingston. The newest member of the EYB family. -JBJ http://yfrog.com/j5b8agj

@jackingram: http://tweetphoto.com/31134763 R u kidding me?!This is my rental?!This will do zero for my street cred! Might as well drive a moped or rollerblades!

@jamesotto:

Dolly, Phil, Reba, Darius and Toby on TV this weekend, Tim gives the shirt off his own back and Trace takes on Richard Petty

Tube Check Tomorrow (7/3): Dolly Celebrates 25 Years Of Dollywood on the Hallmark channel at 8pm; Phil Vassar will be on the CBS Early Show; and Craig Morgan's: All Access Outdoors will air on the Outdoor Channel.

Tube Check Sunday (7/4): Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker will be among the artists performing on A Capitol Fourth on PBS; over on CBS Toby Keith will be on the 37th Annual Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular

Tim McGraw recently gave Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley the shirt off his back -- literally. It was part of a ritual Tim has every tour where he gives his tour mates one of his shirts, so Charles and Dave Haywood each received a selection from his closet. And as happy as he was to accept the gesture, Charles couldn't help but ponder just exactly how the ritual got its start. Sorry Tim, but that's kinda weird. I'm sure a fan would like it if you took off your shirt and threw it to them from the stage...am I right ladies? But asking two fellow...guy...artists to come take a used shirt of yours is just plain weird.

Taylor Swift comes in at No. 12 on Forbes' 100 most powerful celebrities list, released this week. The high ranking makes the 20-year-old superstar the top-rated country musician on this list, but not the youngest celeb. Taylor's buddy Miley Cyrus has that distinction, as the 17-year-old ranks just behind Taylor at No. 13.

Trace Adkins is a celebrity spokesman for BC Powder and now has a friendly rivalry going with Richard Petty who is the spokesman for the Goody's Headache Powder, to see who experiences the biggest pains in their given professions. Richard has crashes and Trace has to fight off those rabid fans - who do you suppose suffers the most bumps, bruises, and headaches? Sorry Trace- I think Richard's got you beat big time! But everyone gets a vote to decide. See, Trace and Richard are asking you to join their team. They will then be trying to prove who has the tougher, pain-inducing job by attempting to perform in their rival's world in ways such as 6 foot 6 inch Trace will attempt to get into Richard's race car (through the window, how's that for a picture?) and Richard will try his hand singing karaoke. All the challenges will be taped for your viewing pleasure and posted to www.pickapowder.com. Then you get to help pick the winner and get a shot at winning a VIP experience prize package- Trace's is a VIP concert experience for his 2011 tour and Richard's is a VIP racing experience.
