Miranda Lambert Releases Cookbook, “Y’all Eat Yet?”

As reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Miranda Lambert prepares for the April 25 release of her first book, “Y’all Eat Yet? Welcome to the Pretty B*tchin’ Kitchen,” written together with Holly Gleason, she announces a trio of book signing events to bring the recipes she was raised on and stories of intergenerational female friendship to fans nationwide.
Kicking off in New York City on release day, Lambert will visit the 5th Avenue Barnes & Noble store April 25 at 12 p.m. ET before appearing at The Grove Barnes & Noble store in Los Angeles on April 28 at 11 a.m. PT. She will also return to her hometown of Lindale, Texas – where many of the book’s stories were born – for a signing at her own Pink Pistol store on May 9 at 12 p.m. CT ahead of the ACM Awards in nearby Dallas later that week. Limited tickets priced at $38.11 plus an Eventbrite fee of $4 (which include one book each) will be available via at 11 a.m. local time today, March 21.
With “Y’all Eat Yet?” (Dey Street Books), the most awarded artist in ACM history takes readers deeper into her life off stage, on her farm and on the road, as well as sharing her beloved Airstream trailers, her signature fashion sense and decorating style. Lambert grew up surrounded by her mother and grandmother, and also by her mother’s tight-knit pack of girlfriends. With them, she learned the power of female friendship and the bonds that women share – and the way good food and drink is the perfect reason for any gathering of your girlfriends.
“Watching my mom and her friends, I saw the way pitching in, working together, loving music and being there for each other is the greatest gift you can have in life. I think my mom inherited that gift from her mom, because they both attracted the most awesome group of girlfriends,” says Lambert. 
These colorful women knew how to have too much fun, come through in a jam, celebrate, cry when necessary and really, really cook – and it’s to these women that Lambert credits her own inviting, come-on-in personality. Each and every recipe in “Y’all Eat Yet?” has been handed down from her mom, grandma and those cherished friends, including Nonny’s Banana Pudding, The Loaf (aka “the meal that will get the ring”), Dutch Oven (Coffee Can) Campfire Cobbler, Stacked Enchilada Bake, Jalapeño Pimento Cheese, Roasted Root Vegetable Winter Salad, Whiskey Cupcakes and more.
For everything from porch parties to road trips, the holidays and celebratory gatherings, “Y’all Eat Yet?” is true to Lambert’s roots growing up in Texas. It showcases easy to prepare, hearty and delicious meals meant to be shared with those you love. Full of the moments most people never get to see in the life of one of country music’s most important female superstars – along with gorgeous fare and 50 recipes – “Y’all Eat Yet?” was created to fill your belly and feed your soul.


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With “Thought You Should Know” sitting at the top of the charts and a new album arriving at midnight, Morgan Wallen has secretly planned an arena-sized live and direct-with-fans celebration to commemorate the release of One Thing At A Time. Sharing the news just moments ago (Watch HERE), Wallen’s pop-up is free for his fans this Friday night, March 3, at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

With the NHL’s Predators away for a game, the stars aligned for the ACM, CMA and American Music Awards winner to return to the arena that housed three consecutive sold-out shows on his 2022 Dangerous Tour for one night only.

With over 1.2 million fans already committed to 2023’s One Night At A Time World TourWallen wanted to create the kind of night sure to create memories to last through all 63-shows—and 30-stadiums – with an up-close, in-the-round, free full band event.

“I’m gonna do acoustic… everyone’s asking me why I’m not doing a Tennessee show. I’m doing one now. Friday, 3/23. See you there,” Wallen shared with fans.

With only 9 songs of the 36-song project available now, Wallen has already seen tremendous streaming demand, leaving Billboard opining “Morgan Wallen Draws A Winning Five Card Hand” as the superstar claims the top spot on all five Billboard country charts – marking the first time an artist has done so since 2019.

Fans can only reserve tickets in person at downtown Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and are capped at two tickets per-person. The in-the-round show kicks-off Friday night at 7:30 p.m. with doors opening at 4:30 p.m.

Hailed by Billboard for making “his superstar arrival as a touring artist” in 2022, Morgan Wallen recently wrapped his record-shattering 55-show Dangerous Tour with his first headlining stadium show at Globe Life Field in Arlington, TX, which saw him shatter attendance records previously held by Elton John and Lady Gaga. Now, the CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee who broke records in 30 venues across the country – with the only country tour nominated for Pollstar’s Major Tour of the Year – will embark on a massive world tour in 2023. Spanning 30 stadium shows across 4 countries and 2 continents, plus arenas, amphitheaters and festivals, Wallen’s 63-show 2023 One Night At A Time World Tour will deliver the man The New Yorker dubbed as “the most wanted man in country” to fans worldwide.

With over 13.6 billion on-demand streams and eight chart-toppers at Country radio, the East Tennessean’s latest hit to top the charts is “Thought You Should Know,” cowritten with Nicolle Galyon and Miranda Lambert. Recent breakout hit “You Proof” became his fastest climbing single to-date, reaching No. 1 after just 14 weeks and remaining at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart for a record-breaking ten non-consecutive weeks. On the heels of the unparalleled success of his 4x platinum, ACM Album of the Year, Dangerous: The Double Album (Big Loud/Mercury/Republic Records) – which topped 2021’s all-genre Billboard 200 Albums year-end chart and notched historical chart status as Billboard’s longest running Top 10 album in history for a solo artist (with 108 total weeks spent in the Top 10, eclipsing Adele’s 21 and Bruce Springsteen’s Born In The USA), Wallen’s 36-song deeply personal third studio album, One Thing At A Time, arrives March 3, 2023. The American Music Awards’ Favorite Male Country Artist and Favorite Country Song (“Wasted On You”) winner continues to touch fans’ lives in ways few can; Pollstar noting “[he has] the ability to distill his life in a way that pulls others to him.” Thanks to those very fans, the superstar has raised nearly $3 million dollars for causes close to his heart with $3 from every U.S. ticket sold for each tour benefitting the Morgan Wallen Foundation.

Lindsay Ell Wows Coachella Valley crowd, again

In typical Lindsay Ell fashion, the singer/songwriter/guitarist had the crowd on their feet, from start to finish! On a dark, rainy, gloomy night, the Canadian born artist was a ray of sunshine with her lyrics and guitar solos.

The concert, which was scheduled to take place outside prior to rain, was moved inside of Agua Caliente Casino Cathedral City. This along with a BBQ menu and line dance competition made for an action packed evening in the desert. But Lindsay Ell is no stranger to the Coachella Valley. Like her native Canadians that make their yearly trips to the Valley, Lindsay has performed at Stagecoach several times, most recently in 2022, and she never disappoints.

Along with performing her hits, “Right On Time”, “Criminal” and “What Happens in a Small Town”, Lindsay also announced that she would be heading on tour with Shania Twain. Lindsay stated that it was a dream of hers to perform with Shania, since she was a kid. These two phenomenal artists on tour together, this promises to be a “Must-See” concert.

Country superstar and reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs’ new song, “Joe,” written by Combs, Erik Dylan and James Slater, is out today. Listen/share HERE

Of the song, Combs shares, “There have been some folks in my family that have struggled with alcoholism and addiction through the years, I’ve got buddies who live a sober lifestyle, and I’m sure y’all know someone who has struggled with these types of things, or maybe you yourself do. This song is really important to me for that reason. Our genre has so many songs about drinking and partying, hell, I’m probably one of the worst culprits of it. There’s nothing wrong with that I don’t think, but sometimes I wonder what someone in the crowd who doesn’t drink or struggles with addiction is thinking or feeling when there’s thousands of people around them screaming ‘Beer Never Broke My Heart’ or ‘1, 2 Many.’ I’ve always wanted a song for those people to have for themselves. To have a song they can sing at the top of their lungs and feel like they’re not forgotten. When Erik Dylan sent me the work tape of this a few years back, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. So, if you’re reading this and this song speaks to you, I hope you love it. This one’s for you.” 

“Joe” is the third song unveiled from Combs’ new album, Gettin’ Old—a companion to his acclaimed 2022 record, Growin’ Up—which will be released March 24 via River House Artists/Columbia Nashville (pre-order here). Produced by Combs, Chip Matthews and Jonathan SingletonGettin’ Old is Combs’ fourth full-length album following Growin’ Up, 2019’s 3x Platinum What You See is What You Get and his 4x Platinum debut, This One’s For You. Across these eighteen tracks, including a rendition of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” Combs continues to establish himself as one of music’s most authentic and powerful voices, as he explores themes of family, legacy, love and personal growth. 

Ahead of the release, Combs has unveiled two additional album tracks: “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old” and “Love You Anyway,” of which The New York Times praises, “His bellow is more stable, his emotional presence more dignified. But there’s still something of a purring engine inside songs like ‘Love You Anyway,’” while Billboard declares, “it immediately sounds like one of his strongest to date.”

Reflecting on the album, Combs shares, “This album is about the stage of life I’m in right now. One that I’m sure a lot of us are in, have been through, or will go through. It’s about coming of age, loving where life is now but at the same time missing how it used to be, continuing to fall for the one you love and loving them no matter what, living in the moment but still wondering how much time you have left, family, friends, being thankful, and leaving a legacy. Me and so many others have poured their hearts and souls into this record, and I hope you love it as much as we do.”     

Furthermore, Combs will kick off his massive World Tour next month with sixteen North American stadium shows, all of which sold out immediately. With 39 shows across 3 continents and 16 countries, the record-breaking run is the largest tour ever for a country artist. The upcoming trek includes shows at Arlington, TX’s AT&T Stadium, Nashville’s Nissan Stadium and Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium, as well as stops in Australia, New Zealand, U.K., Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, France and Belgium. See below for complete tour itinerary. 

A member of the Grand Ole Opry and an 8x CMA, 3x ACM, 3x Billboard Music Award-winner, Combs is in the midst of a historic series of years. Most recently, he was named CMA Entertainer of the Year for the second-consecutive year this past November and recently earned his record-setting, fourteenth-consecutive #1 single with “The Kind of Love We Make.” Continuing his monumental run at country radio, Combs’ current single, “Going, Going, Gone,” is currently top 3 and rising. Additionally, with his 2019 release, What You See Ain’t Always What You Get, Combs reached #1 on Rolling Stone’s Top 200 Albums chart, Top 100 Songs chart and Artists 500 chart—the first country artist ever to lead all three charts in the same week and first to top the Artists 500.

Tex-Mex Trio, The Last Bandoleros, to perform at Stagecoach

Stagecoach 2023, has set itself apart from previous Stagecoach Festivals with its incredibly diverse list of artists, from BRELAND, Trixie Mattel and our personal favorite,Valerie June. A welcome addition to this year’s festival is the Tex-Mex trio, The Last Bandoleros.

San Antonio’s native sons, The Last Bandoleros, have been earning effusive accolades for their acomplished musicianship and impressive harmonies, opening for artists such as Sting, Los Lobos and Dwight Yoakum. The trio refers to their unique new sound as “Tex-Flex”- also the name of their brand new album.

“Tex-Flex” is a is a delicious sonic “guiso” infusing elements of Bolero, Cumbia, Tejano, Bachata and Salsa into modern rock, country, and pop production. Their song, “Maldita” which begins with an alluring Spanish nylon guitar, has already received a prestigious Premio Tejano Mundial award for “Crossover Song of the Year”, while “California Moon” a haunting duet with singer/songwriter Hannah Brier, evokes an unforgettable drive down LA’s Sunset Boulevard.

Other selections from “Tex-Flex, include the effervescent “Every Time We Dance”, stunning ballad “Mi Amor”, salsa-flavored “In Between” romantic Bachata beat-driven “Fall In LoveAgain”, Tejano-flavored “Friends Zone”, and rollicking “Somewhere in Texas”- a country-fuled ode to their beloved stomping grounds complete with cumbia breakdown.

Also included in the album is a modernized Tex-Flex rendition of Eddie Cochran’s iconic “Something Else” and mesmorizing cover of Los Panchos’ heart wrenching classic, “Sin Un Amor” which wonderfully showcases The Last Bandoleros’ irresistible harmonies.

Coachella Valley Loves Its Country Music

The Coachella Valley has always been known as the home of Stagecoach, the largest country music festival in the western United States. But over the past few years, the Coachella Valley has stepped out as a home for country music & its artists. A large part of the growth in country music throughout the Coachella Valley, has to do with the influence of our local casinos. Agua Caliente, Fantasy Springs & Spotlight 29 have all showcased their facilities by hosting a number of country artists.

Here is a brief rundown of the local facilities and the artists that have performed at the venue:

Agua Caliente: Located in Rancho Mirage, The Show at Agua Caliente is a 2100 seat venue, which boasts some of the latest lighting and videography, in the valley. The Show has been host to several country artists, including Dustin Lynch, Randy Houser & Old Dominion. Check out for upcoming shows and room reservations.

Fantasy Springs: The Special Events Center is located in Indio, and has hosted concerts and world championship boxing. Country artists which have performed include, Chris Young, Old Dominion, Gary Allen and Brooks & Dunn. Fantasy Springs LIT Lounge, located inside the casino, also hosts Country Nights, with DJ Big John Miller. Check out for room availability and entertainment info.

Spotlight 29: The latest venue to host country music artists is located in the city of Coachella, at Spotlight 29 Casino, Coachella Crossroads. Coachella Crossroads is a 50 Acre outdoor entertainment complex located adjacent to Spotlight 29 Casino. It is developed by The Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians and this Veteran’s Day, will host a concert, “Salute to Our Troops” with Blake Shelton as the headliner. Spotlight 29 also has a showroom inside the casino. The Showroom seats 2,200 that has featured headliners such as Justin Moore, Montgomery Gentry and Big & Rich.Acrisure Arena: Another venue, that was recently completed, is Acrisure Arena, a brand new 11,000 seat venue. The arena is home to The Coachella Valley Firebirds hockey team and will host a number of concerts, including the great Shania Twain.

The number of venues that are hosting country music artists, has increased in the past several years, but Stagecoach is still the most popular country music event held in the Coachella Valley. Fortunately with the amount of country music concerts being held throughout the year, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from, while we wait for April to come around.

Stagecoach 2023 Lineup Announced

Last week GoldenVoice released the line up for Stagecoach 2023 and we believe it’s one of the best lineups that we’ve seen! Stagecoach always has amazing headliners and up and coming talent performing at the Palomino stage or Sirius XM stage, but what makes this year’s lineup so good, is the range of the performing artists. Headliners Luke Bryan, Kane Brown and Chris Stapleton represent three subcategories within country music, which as far as we’ve heard, has been pleasing to our readers/followers.

Luke Bryan has always been a Stagecoach favorite with his poppy, catchy, feel-good songs. You can’t go wrong with having Luke Bryan perform at Stagecoach. Kane Brown has an amazing voice and is popular with younger fans, especially the ladies. Chris Stapleton has so many phenomenal songs, that we don’t know how they’ll be able to fit them all into a two hour set. These three artists are well deserving of headline status, because of their singing & song-writing abilities, but more importantly, they have a very loyal fanbase, and their songs will definitely get people dancing, at the end of the night.

Other artists that we’re excited to see:

Old Dominion– They’ve been named Group of the Year for good reason. Everyone loves Old Dominion

Kameron Marlowe– This talented young artist has established himself as a force to be reckoned with with hits, “Giving You Up” and “Tequila Talkin'”. Be sure to catch his set!

Morgan Wade– This talented female, has the voice and lyrics that paint a picturesque scene, for every song she sings. She performs at Stagecoach on Saturday. DO. NOT. MISS. HER!
