Dierks Bentley will release his ninth album, The Mountain, in the next few months.

Jake Owen just sold his home near Nashville for $1.31 million. The two-story, 5,000 square-foot house sits on seven acres, and includes a recording studio and a tiki bar (because it’s Jake Owen, of course he has a tiki bar). Jake bought the house six years ago for $625,000 from Loretta Lynn’s daughter.

Willie Nelson was just one song into his set on Saturday night in San Diego when he started having trouble breathing, and had to cancel the rest of the show, coughing as he left the stage. He’s also cancelled the rest of his shows for the week. A spokesperson said he’s recovering from “a bad cold or the flu.” Willie plans to resume his tour on February 7th in Macon, Georgia.

Rascal Flatts will hit the road this summer with Dan and Shay and Carly Pearce. It’ll be their first summer tour since 2016, and they do plan on stopping in Dallas at some point on the tour, but that’s the closest they’ll come to the panhandle. Tickets will go on sale January 26.
