No more chaps for Cher? Yesterday I mentioned that Carrie Underwood's producer Mark Bright said he was working on a country album with Cher but a new report today says that's not true. According to HitFix.com, she had a change of heart once she got into the studio to record. The album she will now be making a dance record.
Sara Evans should talk to Keith and Nicole! Sara recently said that she wants to have another baby...but not herself. She wants to use a surrogate. She has a total of seven children between herself and new husband Jay. In a recent chat with 99 Country, Sara (who has had three pregnancies) said, “We want a baby together, so bad. We’re planning to. I have to figure out the right time. I despise pregnancy. I am begging Jay to let us hire a surrogate but he’s not comfortable with that.” Sara said she would prefer to have someone close to her carry the baby for her! “I would want it to be somebody I knew, like one of my sisters or a friend,” she said. “Someone I knew I could trust, who wouldn’t run off with my baby.” Evans’ hubby Jay Barker still isn’t feeling the idea as of now.
Can't picture Blake Shelton without his trademark jeans and boots? Well neither can fiance Miranda Lambert so that's what he'll be wearing when they walk down the aisle May 14th!

Blake is co-hosting the ACMs next month with Reba but the one person he's not asking for hosting advice...friend Trace Adkins. Trace of course hosted the American Country Awards back in December but when asked if he would hit his friend up for tips Blake told countryweeekly.com, "God no, Trace sucks. Trace just comes across as if he’s gonna whip everyone’s ass if they don’t laugh at his jokes." Funny...and true! Read the rest of Blake ripping on Trace here.
