After watching all these videos we feel for these Country Music superstars. Life on stage is not all glitz and glamour. Nobody is perfect, and sometimes you might take a good fall on stage. Here are 7 Country Music artists who are a little more clumsy than you think!

3. Willie Nelson showed us a crazy card trick.

4. Dierks Bentley was ‘Living On A Prayer.”

5. Miranda Lambert opened up her own bed and breakfast in Oklahoma called The Ladysmith.

6. Luke Bryan had a corn maze made in his own image.

7. Brantley Gilbert became an ordained minister and wants to marry off his fans at an upcoming show.

8. Dustin Lynch fell at one of his shows. At least that’s what we think it looks like.

(Ok, let’s add just two more reasons to make this even more awkward.)

9. Kellie Pickler is the new voice for Mirabelle in the newest VeggieTales movie.

10. And RaeLynn became a unicorn (sort of).

 


Breaking in your cowboy boots is perhaps the most important part in ownership. After surfing the web, we found a number of crazy ways to break in boots. Hot water, baby powder, cooking oil, rubbing alcohol… What is going on out there???

Although there are many “creative” ways to breaking in boots, we recommend these safe methods to minimize risk of damage.

1. Wear Them.

Yes. It’s that simple. Just wear them. However don’t wear them for an extended period of time in a single day. Wear them around the house and let them adjust to your feet.

2. Wear Them With A Comfortable Sock

Putting on a pair of socks will help stretch your boots out and help prevent blisters from happening. Again, wear your boots for short periods of time throughout the day.

3. Increase The Amount Time Worn

After a few days of walking around in your boots, increase the length of time you wear them by an hour every week.

4. Professional Boot Stretching

If you have no time to spare at all, then we recommend taking them to a professional boot cobbler. There is less risk in damaging your new boots when taking them to a professional.

It’s time for a look back at the Country Music Charts this Throwback Thursday.

September 25, 1994


On this day back in 1994 a man by the name of Joe Diffie was blowing up the Country Music Charts with the #1 hit single “Third Rock From The Sun.” To all the youngsters reading, watch the video with an open mind will you? 🙂

September 25, 2004

Keith Urban scored his 5th number one single with “Days Go By” back in 2004, and days do in fact go by when you realize that this song is over 10 years old!
