Instruction Manual

Is it just me, or shouldn't houses come with instruction manuals?! My husband and I bought our first home about 6 months ago and we still can't figure out what some light switches go to! We finally figured out that a few in the living room go to lights outside! Makes no sense.

We were planning to paint the living room this weekend so I was prepping the walls today...when I got to the area around the fireplace I realized that the fireplace isn't's wallpapered! It's the exact same color and we just never noticed! So now we have to add wallpaper removal to our already long to-do list for the holiday weekend. Where are these so called "joys" of home ownership?!

The Voice! and a new country wedding to look forward to?

AAAH- I need to catch up on The Voice! Because of my vacation last week I'm now two weeks behind so don't tell me who went home yet...I DO know to look forward to this: Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton will perform "Don't Drink The Water" from Brad's This Is Country Music during part one of The Voice's two-part season finale tomorrow night. Blake and the rest of The Voice coaches will also cover the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" during tomorrow night's broadcast. Miranda Lambert will perform with Team Blake's Dia Frampton during Wednesday's (6/29) results show.

Wow- I totally thought they were already married- Wrong! Country Weekly just talked with Steel Magnolia and they are working on planning their wedding...maybe. “I’d like to do it next year on my birthday, July 10,” Joshua tells while in Los Angeles to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight (June 27).

While Meghan is sure about wanting to marry her longtime beau and singing partner, she’s not so sold on the date yet. “We were thinking about it. We’re going to see,” she says. “See, he just thinks July 10 because of his birthday and I’m going, ‘Well, do you know if it’s a Saturday? Is it a Tuesday?’ He doesn’t think about those things.”

Meghan wears a beautiful antique engagement ring that belonged to Joshua’s great grandmother, but it’s on her middle finger of her left hand instead of the usual ring finger because it’s too big.

“We’re technically engaged,” she says, before adding “he’s waited so long that he’s going to have to re-ask.”

Joshua gave her the ring four-and-a-half years ago, after the couple had dated for a year and long before they won the second season of Can You Duet. “We’re both bad procrastinators,” Joshua says. “We’re terrible,” chimes in Meghan. “We went to Vegas for the ACMs and we went to dinner and we’re sitting there with our friends. We’re like, ‘We should just go get married. Why not?’”

“And we ate too much,” Joshua says. “And we were tired,” says Meghan, finishing his sentence. “So we feel like we’re married because we’re too tired to get married. It’s like an old couple or something.”

More on Trace's devestating house fire and Brad has some illegal fun with Jeff Gordon

Trace Adkins has received an outpouring of support after the devastating electrical fire at his TN home this weekend. He has appealed to friends and fans to instead direct their generosity to those who have lost everything in the wake of recent floods and tornadoes in the South. He asks that the kindness and donations offered to him be extended to the American Red Cross via CMT One Country - those wishing to help can click on, call 1-800 RED CROSS or text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Message and data rates may apply.

“I have been blessed. My kids are ok, my wife is ok. I have my guitar and my songs. Everything else can be replaced. Unfortunately, there are families out there who need help if they’re to rebuild after these recent storms. The American Red Cross was one of the first on the scene to help my family and, through their work, others will receive the assistance they need to get back on their feet,” said Trace.

Brad Paisley had some not-so-legal fun with pal Jeff Gordon during the making of the video for his new single, 'Old Alabama,' managing to run Jeff's racecar out on the open streets.

"We drove the 24 car around on the road," Brad tells "We didn't make it street-legal. We just drove the thing. That's the beauty of videos -- they'll close down roads for you. People were freaking out! Imagine that car going by you -- Jeff himself was out there driving his racecar on the roads. People saw him go by, and were like, 'What?!! He didn't even take time to switch vehicles before driving home from work?!'"

Justin Bieber has gone Nashville again TONIGHT as a presenter for the CMT Awards which will be live on CMT at 8:00pm. And although Trace Adkins' 3 daughters have Beiber Fever...Trace...not so much. Trace’s reply to the question if he knows any Justin Bieber songs on CNN “Oh God, yes! I know all of Justin Bieber’s songs because I have three little girls. I have to listen to that all the time...
It’s just … you’ve heard ’99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall?’ About the time you get to the end of ’99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall,’ that melody, you’re sick of it, right? Same way with Justin Bieber. He just sings ’99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall,’ and I’m over it.”

Ever watch the Travel Channel's "Man vs Food Nation?" Well tonight country band the LoCash Cowboys are featured on the Travel Channel’s new series. The new show is a take on Man Vs Food and lets fans have the chance to step up to the plate and take on local food challenges. “It was a big steak but even bigger fun doing this challenge,” commented Preston. Chris added, “Adam and the crew were absolutely great to work with and hang around. We had a blast.”
