Eric Church has a love for “The Weight” the song by The Band seen in his many covers of the song throughout his tours. Church’s love for the song was on display again when he and Warren Haynes sang the song at recent live show. You could see the excitement on Church’s face as Haynes came onto stage which then poured over onto the crowd. We will have to see if Church brings this back as he and Hank Williams Jr. kick off the 49th CMA awards.

Since then many people have been using this to make jokes about how Blake could “one-up” Adam. Ellen DeGeneres did this on her show that aired October 16th, Ellen and the powers of technology gave Blake a new hairdo.

We weren’t aware we needed a Country version of “When I Was Your Man,” by Bruno Mars. Now we think this is the next best thing!

Country singer Thomas Rhett can’t get enough of the Popstar.

“I’m obsessed with Bruno Mars’ records,” he told Rolling Stone Country, “I’d give my right leg to be able to sing like that dude,”

After rehearsing the song before shows, and lowering it a few keys to get the right pitch, Rhett and his bandmate Reedy set out to record an intimate, stripped down version of ‘When I Was Your Man” at Nashville’s Creative Caffeine studios.

Watch the video below. What do you think? Do you love the song? Leave us a comment.
