Congratulations to Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher who revealed on Twitter today (Labor Day) they're expecting their first child. Carrie dressed her dogs Ace and Penny in matching "big brother" and "big sister" doggie T-shirts for the announcement.
Carrie tweeted, "In honor of 'Labor' Day … Ace and Penny would like to make an announcement. Their parents couldn't be happier!"
Brad Paisley was among the first country stars to congratulate the expectant parents.
The track listing for Blake Shelton’s new album Bringing Back the Sunshine is out! The 11-track collection includes the lead single “Neon Light,” plus collaborations with Ashley Monroe and RaeLynn.
He tells Rolling Stone, “The whole album is searching for parts of me that I think have…not gotten lost along the way, but stuff that I haven’t addressed in my music as much as I used to, whether it’s drinking songs, heartbreak songs or songs about how people treat you. Things like that.”
Bringing Back the Sunshine lands September 30th. The Voice returns September 22nd.
