This week in country music news, CMT Fest is airing August 3rd, Kelsea Ballerini finally announced her new album, Carrie Underwood looked in her own closet for Vegas looks, Stagecoach 2023 tickets, and Tyler Hubbard is Joining Keith Urban’s Tour in the Fall!

  • “CMT Fest” Is Airing August 3rd on ABC. It’s going down August 3rd at 8:00 P.M. on ABC.  Dierks Bentley and Elle King are the hosts . . . and they’ll point you in the direction of “30 unforgettable collaborations and performances” filmed during the 49th CMA Fest.

  • Kelsea Ballerini finally finished posting cryptic teasers about her next album.  It’s called “Subject to Change”, and it’ll be out September 23rd.  She also shared a very “new age” piece of audio explaining how she came up with the title.  Close your eyes, assume the downward dog, and listen “blissfully.”
  • Carrie Underwood used items from her own closet to create her looks during her recent Las Vegas residency.  She likes to collect vintage shirts, so she brought ones of Guns N’ Roses and Patty Loveless.  She also likes to buy them oversized and turn them into rompers.
  • Tickets to Next Year’s Stagecoach Are Going on Sale This Friday. Advance festival passes are going on sale this Friday.  The 15th Annual Stagecoach Festival is happening April 28th through the 30th in Indio, California.  Performers will be announced in the coming months.

  • Keith Urban’s “The Speed of Now World Tour” will have some Florida Georgia Line vibes next fall.  Tyler Hubbard announced yesterday that he’s joining the tour in the fall.  Ingrid Andress is the other opener.
