  • Lee Brice got engaged to longtime girlfriend Sara Reeveley this week.
  • Give a listen and then download “Girls Are Crazy About Me,” a song on a new album from Don Flemons (Carolina Chocolate Drops) and Boo Hanks.
  • Gregg Allman’s recent Ryman show was a good time, reports Evan Schlansky of American Songwriter. Maybe not for the guy who got stabbed in the face, but for everyone else.
  • Here’s Ryan Adams covering hair-metal band Ratt’s “Round and Round.”
