Kelsea Ballerini checked something off her bucket list this year. She’ll be featured in the March issue of Cosmo.

Garth Brooks recently had a fan from Sweden mention that she and her new husband would be visiting America on their honeymoon and asked where they should go while they’re in the South. So, Garth very graciously invited them over to his house to have a home-cooked meal with him and Trisha. Garth’s birthday also happens to be today. He’s 56.

And, after Chris Stapleton won all three Grammys he was nominated for this year, his albums started selling like hot cakes. He now holds the top three spots on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. It’s the first time anybody’s done that in over 25 years.
