Carrie Underwood has been quite busy with a new album dropping December 9, and performances left and right. Just this week she took the stage at the World AIDS Concert and CMAs Country Christmas. So what’s next on the horizon for this songbird?

Carrie announced this week that she will be launching a new fitness lifestyle clothing line called CALIA by Carrie.
“I felt in my own closet and in stores that I would go in,  a big gap in things that were out there for women,” said Underwood.

Her line will debut at Dick’s Sporting Goods in March 2015.

CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan is in mourning this week following the loss of his brother-in-law. He was set to perform and be honored at the CMT Artists of the Year show on Tuesday but cancelled to be with family in Georgia.

Ben Lee Cheshire is the widowed husband of Luke’s only sister, Kelly, who died back in 2007. The family had three children.

In lieu of Bryan’s absence, a CMT rep told People Magazine “We are going to honor Luke in absentia and will recognize him in only the best way we know how – out of respect for him and his family.”

Lady Antebellum and songwriter Chris Stapleton, paid tribute to Bryan at the show performing his hit song “Drink a Beer,” which was written in honor of his late brother and sister.

Luke Bryan watched the performance and went to Twitter to give thanks for the support.

“That was amazing. Truly. Thank you Charles, Dave, Hillary and Chris! Beautiful!!! Thank you fans for your love.” -@LukeBryanOnline

It’s beginning to look a lot like Country Christmas.

Last night, Country Music Stars came together to spread some holiday cheer. Singer/Actress Idina Menzel of Frozen was invited to sing with Jennifer Nettles, who just so happens to be a huge fan.

As Jennifer began singing “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” Idina decides to cut her off before she could sing the next verse. But what happened next was truly magical.

“I’ve had panic attacks before big moments,” Luke Bryan said in an interview with ABC World News on overcoming stage fright.

The singer took the time to reflect on his triumphs and success before the CMA Awards. But despite his numerous hits and awards, Luke Bryan would have to endure two major family tragedies before seeing major success in Country Music.

Luke always wanted to be a singer, and just before his 19th birthday as he set out to Nashville to chase his dreams, his older brother Chris was unexpectedly killed in a car accident.

“You never truly move beyond it,” said Luke who at the time decided to stay home with the family and attend college instead.

It wasn’t until his father fired him from his “day job” that Luke was given the boost to head out to Nashville. He found success as a songwriter with Capital Records, and later signed as a performer.

His hit song “All My Friends Say” put him on the map.

Shortly after being invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry, his big sister Kelly unexpectedly died at home due to unknown causes.

How has Luke been able to cope with these major losses and continue to shine through success? Watch his interview with ABC World news below.

Garth Brooks made a pit stop on the “Ellen” and had the crowd on their feet performing one of his classic hits “Ain’t Going Down (Till The Sun Comes Up).” Can you believe it’s been nearly 13 years since the release of his last album? Man Against Machine has charted the Billboard Hot 200 becoming one of the most successful albums of 2014.

But Garth’s appearance wasn’t complete without a little tear jerker. After a widely successful performance on Good Morning America of his new song “Mom,” Garth once again performed an acoustic version of the piece bring the Ellen show audience to tears.
