Capitol NashvilleBy now, you’ve probably heard that Luke Bryan will sing the national anthem at Super Bowl 51. But he’s not the only country act who’ll get a piece of the pie at this year’s big game.

Both Lady Antebellum and Tyler Farr will play the pre-game party at Houston’s NRG Center in advance of the Sunday, February 5 match-up between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots.

“I think it’s a no-brainer for any artist to immediately say ‘yes’ when you’re asked to play at Super Bowl events,” Charles Kelley says.

Lady A has another major sporting event on the books next month as well. They’ll headline the pre-race show before the 59th annual Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 26. It’s the third appearance at Daytona International Speedway for the “You Look Good” hitmakers.

ABC/Image Group LA He’s already set to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” before Super Bowl 51 next month, but that’s not the only high-profile TV appearance Luke Bryan has lined up.

Next season, the couple jokingly known as Bluke will be together again, as Luke reunites with Blake Shelton as an advisor for his team on The Voice. The last time the two showed off their antics was in April 2015, when they co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards for the third year in a row.  

Season 12 of The Voice kicks off Monday, February 27 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

BMLGNow that “God, Your Mama and Me” has been released officially as the new single from Florida Georgia Line, the wait is on for their new video co-starring the Backstreet Boys.

“When I first heard it, it sounded like a modern-day Backstreet Boys song,” Brian Kelley says of the cut. “We got to know Nick [Carter] and the boys really well and are blessed to have them on this track,” he adds.

Brian recalls seeing the all-boy band from the nineties as his very first concert at the House of Blues in Orlando, Florida when he was in the sixth grade.

“This makes a lot of sense why we are a duo,” Tyler Hubbard explains. “I was also in the sixth grade and remember going to the record store to buy my first CD, Backstreet Boys!” he says.

This Friday, Tyler and Brian kick off the next leg of their Dig Your Roots Tour in Tallahassee, Florida, with Dustin Lynch and Chris Lane.

The Valory Music Co.Brantley Gilbert’s new album, The Devil Don’t Sleep, won’t be out until Friday, but if you’ve been to see the Georgia native in concert, chances are you’ve already gotten to sample some of its songs.

“Our live show, you know, is really adrenaline-driven and really high-energy,” Brantley tells ABC Radio. “So a lot of the up-tempo songs we've tried out in a live format, just to get response and try to feel those out. You know, songs like 'The Weekend' and songs like 'It's About to Get Dirty.'”

If you’re a football fan and a gamer, there’s a good chance you know that tune well.

“'It's About to Get Dirty' was on the new Madden game,” Brantley points out. “It came out way early, so we got a chance to play it live some. And you know, the response from that's been unbelievable,” he adds.

“The response on 'The Weekend' has been unbelievable,” he says as well of his current top-20 single. “We're having some fun with it, and yeah, you get a chance to try some of the stuff that's upcoming.”

Brantley kicks off his 2017 dates February 2 in Reading, Pennsylvania with Tucker Beathard and Luke Combs warming up the crowd.

ABC/Image Group LADetails are still being worked out, but Luke Bryan is on board to headline a concert to help tornado victims in his native Albany, Georgia, according to the Albany Herald. Twisters struck the southwest part of the Peach State both on January 2 and over the past weekend.

Songwriter Dallas Davidson, who’s also from the area and wrote Luke’s hits “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day” and “That's My Kind of Night,” is helping plan the show, along with local businessman Bo Henry.

“The recovery effort is going to be here for the long haul,” Henry tells the paper. “We reached out in our devastation to the guys who can really raise money, enough to make a big difference…” he adds.

“Praying for Albany and all of South Georgia,” Luke tweeted on Monday. “My heart goes out to those who lost loved ones.”

Season 11 American Idol winner Phillip Phillips, who’s also a native, will be part of the fundraiser as well, according to the report.

Capitol Nashville“The horns, man!” That’s how Charles Kelley responds when asked what makes Lady Antebellum’s new single, “You Look Good,” stand out against the other contenders from the trio’s HEART BREAK album, which comes out June 9.

Charles goes on to reveal he believes the band’s first album since taking a break to pursue solo endeavors is so strong, any number of tracks could’ve been the lead release.

“We usually fight for singles pretty hard,” he says, “and this is the one time I will say that I went into the label and said, 'Guys, you know better than us. We love it all.'”

“From the first ten seconds of hearing 'You Look Good,' they were like 'Oh my gosh, this sounds so fresh and different!’” Charles remembers.

Even though the threesome ultimately took a purely democratic approach to picking their first single since 2015, Hillary Scott agrees that “You Look Good” was always the overwhelming favorite.

“We played three songs, and even at our management, we started keeping a tally of just what people's responses were…” she recalls, “and it became so obvious and 'You Look Good' was so far ahead of any of the other songs… It just felt fresh…”

“Like a re-introduction,” Charles chimes in.

If you’re wondering what the rest of Lady A’s sixth studio album sounds like, Hillary says “You Look Good” mirrors the energy the threesome felt while making the record, which was recorded half in Los Angeles and half in Music City.

“The sound even makes me feel like we felt making the record,” she says. “And I love that it's the co-lead and the full harmony and it's uptempo. It's groovy and it just felt so cohesive for us as a band just to kind of come back.”

ABC/Mark LevineSam Hunt’s new song, “Drinkin’ Too Much,” may not officially be a single, but it’s making its mark on the Billboard charts anyway. In fact, it’s the Georgia native’s highest debut ever on the Hot Country Songs tally, making its initial appearance at #16.

Written about how the success of Sam’s breakthrough Montevallo album affected his fiancée Hannah Lee Fowler, “Drinkin’ Too Much” is making an even more impressive showing when it comes to digital sales. It moved 26,000 downloads in its first week, landing at #3 on the Country Digital Song Sales ranking -- all without any official radio promotion.

Sam’s next single release is expected to come from his sophomore album, which is currently in the works.
