LUKE'S WIFE MADE THE FIRST MOVE
The man is often the one to go in for the first kiss, but that wasn't the case in Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline's relationship. The two met while attending Georgia Southern University, and Caroline reveals that she was actually the one to make the first move. Caroline tells People Country, "He was always a gentleman. We hung out as friends first and he never made a move on me. I kissed him first! He was always so scared of making a girl feel uncomfortable, he wouldn't cross a line." Now, Luke has found enormous success and risen to super-star fame, but Caroline says he's still just the same person he's always been. She shares, "He's not fake, he's not putting on an act. In college, we used to go dancing in a club til 4 a.m., and he's just as silly at home as he is on stage. He walks around dancing all day, just being goofy."
 
THE SWON BROTHERS' OPRY DEBUT
The Grand Ole Opry house was packed on Saturday night as The Swon Brothers made their debut appearance on the hallowed stage.

The brothers also talked about the history of the Opry and introduced their first song as a tribute to the legendary show. They then sang a verse and chorus of the George Jones classic "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes." Halfway through the song, the duo stopped singing and called their parents on stage with them. They then explained that they wanted to thank their parents for all of the sacrifices they made over the years to help them get to where they are now. After the show, the brothers were still elated that they had reached the career milestone of playing the Opry. Colton Swon said, "Playing the Opry for the first time is something one can't describe. Dreaming all these years of singing on that stage did not even come close to the real life moment." Zach Swon added, "So much history and greatness surrounded us. It's every country singer's dream to stand on that stage. What a life changing experience that I'll never forget."

WEDNESDAY'S MUSIC NEWS:

ZBB WILL KICK OFF NEW TOUR WITH NEW BAND MEMBER
Zac Brown Band will launch its upcoming "The Great American Road Trip Tour" next month, and the tour will feature the band's new, eighth member Matt Mangano on bass. Mangano's official addition may be news to everyone, but fans of the group might recognize the bass player from on-stage guest performances over the years and from his studio work on The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 and Uncaged.

Kacey Musgraves is also set to join ZBB for four shows in Florida in late May and early June.

CHESNEY IS WORKING ON NEW ALBUM
Last year, Kenny Chesney announced that he would be taking a break from the road in 2014 to focus on making his next record. Now, Chesney has given his fans an update on the progress on that new album. Kenny tweeted yesterday, "In studio working on new album. Can't wait for everyone to hear the new music." The message was accompanied by a photo that showed the singer sitting in a chair in front of a studio sound board.
Kenny also took to Twitter yesterday to post a message for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing on the one year anniversary of the tragedy. Chesney tweeted, "Hard to believe it's been a year. Don't forget the #Boston Marathon bombing victims. #SpreadTheLove to help here: http://spreadthelove.kennychesney.com." The tweet provided a link to Kenny's Spread The Love Fund, which helps to provide prosthetics as well as the ongoing care and physical therapy the bombing victims need.
 
DOIN' WHAT HE LIKES
The video for Blake Shelton's most recent chart-topper "Doin' What She Likes," shows him doing the cooking and cleaning for his wife Miranda Lambert, but Blake says that only part of that video is true. Shelton tells People, "I think if you asked Miranda, she'd tell you I cook – I love to cook. I don't like to clean the house so that part of the video is a little bit far-fetched." And what does Blake cook when he puts that apron on? Shelton says, "I'm good at anything that's country – biscuits, gravy, chicken-fried steak. Look at me, for God's sake. I cook what I like to eat." At the end of the video, Blake talks to his wife on the phone as the house burns down in the background, and he reveals that setting things on fire is also something from the video that is accurate. Shelton shares, "I've burned the trash a few times and it got away from me. I've caught the yard on fire. I've burnt up some acreage and had to call the fire department a couple of times."

KIP RELEASES NEW SINGLE
Kip Moore is releasing "Dirt Road" as the next single from his upcoming sophomore album. Kip penned the tune with longtime co-writer Dan Couch as well as Westin Davis, and he used the crowd's reactions to the song as a way to help him determine if it would make the album or not. Moore shares, "The groove of this song is something that really grabbed me. I actually worked it up with the band on the road and we played it live that same night. We did that with a lot of the new songs and in a way the live crowds helped shape this album because of that." The song follows the record's lead single "Young Love," which he also penned with Couch and Davis.

JAKE PARTNERS WITH DISCOVER BOATING AS TOUR SPONSOR
Jake Owen is currently on the road bringing the beach life to people all across the country on his "Days of Gold Tour," and now he's teaming up with Discover Boating as the tour's sponsor to make the trek even more water-friendly. During the trek, Jake will share personal stories of his connection with boating and how it creates fun in his life and music. These vignettes will be featured throughout the tour, and as part of Discover Boating’s new 2014 "Stories of Discovery" series, which will share real boaters' inspiring stories of their life on the water through documentary-style videos. Owen says, "Growing up on the water, boating has always been a part of my life. I can't think of anything better than floating down the water, drinking a cold beverage and hanging with your friends. On this tour, I wanted everyone to feel that by the river vibe and having Discover Boating as part of the action every night is amazing!"

SWIFT MAKES CAMEO APPEARANCE ON SNL
Taylor Swift was in New York City on Saturday where she made a hilarious cameo appearance on NBC's Saturday Night Live. Taylor's brief appearance on the sketch comedy show came while the show's host, Seth Rogen, was doing his opening monologue. During the monologue, Rogen was reading through the journal he made to keep track of the week leading up to the show. Seth kept saying that he didn't need any help or cameo appearances from any other stars. Soon, Zooey Deschanel and James Franco came out on stage and Rogen said, "No, I don't want any help. I told you guys, I'm fine." Then, Swift's voice can be heard off camera saying, "He said he doesn't want any help." Taylor then walked out on stage and the crowd erupted in applause. Seth then asked Swift what she was doing there and she said, "You're getting really upset. And whenever a man shows emotion, I appear." Taylor also announced that her friend and former tour mate Ed Sheeran was there as the musical guest that night.

TAYLOR CRASHES A FAN'S BRIDAL SHOWER
After she made a surprise cameo appearance on Saturday Night Live, Taylor Swift headed to Columbus, Ohio on Sunday to crash a fan's bridal shower. The fan's name is Gena Gabrielle, and she had actually met Swift in 2007 at a meet and greet, according to NBC's Today. The bride-to-be took to her Instagram to share several photos of the two of them hanging out together at the shower. But Swift didn't show up at the party empty-handed; she actually came bearing gifts. Gabrielle then posted a picture on Twitter of the new house warming gifts from Taylor. The photo shows several supplies for the couple's kitchen, including utensils, a cooking pot, a KitchenAid stand mixer and even a Barefoot Contessa cookbook by Ina Garten. Gena tweeted, "@taylorswift13 thank you so much for everything. You went above & bring my wildest dreams. I can't thank you enough." Gena told Today, "I had no idea it was going to happen. [Taylor] said she planned it with her management and her mom. She said it was all worth it because my face was priceless."
 
PAISLEY TRIES TO WARM THINGS UP WITH NEW SINGLE
After hitting the road during the coldest months of the year on his "Beat This Winter Tour," Brad Paisley is now warming things up with his brand new single "River Bank." The song is a summertime jam about having fun on the river, and Paisley hopes the new single will help everyone thaw out after the brutal winter we had. Paisley tells The Tennessean of the new song, "There's a mindset that I am completely ready for after this winter." "River Bank" is also a song that reminds Brad of his childhood experiences out on the water. Paisley shares, "I've called myself, for years, a river rat. My best memories with my grandfather are on that body of water, and my dad and learning to ski." The song is the lead single from Paisley's forthcoming record, of which he says a "working title" may be "Thoughts From a Bumpkin."

The two were honored on Wednesday night during the 10th annual Congressional Gala in Washington, D.C. Moore said, "Although extremely grateful, I feel a little uncomfortable being honored at an event where there are decorated war heroes present. I feel that my contributions are much less significant than theirs … they are the true American heroes."

LYNCH'S LABEL LET HIM PICK THE NEXT SINGLE
Record labels will often take the reins when it comes time to pick an artist's next single, but that wasn't the case with Dustin Lynch's brand new single "Where It's At." The song is the first release from Dustin's forthcoming sophomore record with Broken Bow Records, and he reveals that his label actually let him choose which song to put out this time. Lynch told CMT, "My record label gave me a chance to pick one, so that was a big deal -- a huge weight on my shoulders. I prayed about it a lot and took my time and did my research." Dustin is grateful to have a record label that trusts him as an artist and allows him the freedom to create his own music. Lynch shares, "That's what you dream of happening, when you move to Nashville. You dream of making music you want to make and putting out songs that you want to put out -- 'Where It's At' is definitely that."
