The 5x Canadian Grammy Winner will kick off the “Rock This Country” tour in Seattle on June 5, 2015 and take the show to 48 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Luke Bryan was on The Bobby Bones Show this week, and was challenged to a helium sing-off. After sucking in a balloon full of helium Bobby sang his version of “Drink A Beer.”

Luke did not waste any time as he swallowed two balloons full of helium and sang his rendition of ‘That’s My Kind of Night.’

We think the boys are giving Alvin & The Chipmunks a run for their money! What do you think? Watch the video below.

Taylor Swift Vs Spotify

If you weren’t invited to a special T. Swift listening party, chances are you had to buy the album to listen. Swift pulled 1989 off the music listening sight due to artistic differences.

“It doesn’t do good for me to be competitive with her,” said Shelton. “Have you heard any of her music? All her music is about killing guys, and burning their houses down, and beating up people. That’s my wife!” said Shelton.

What do Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and Jason Aldean all have in common? They are the only platinum selling artists of 2014. In an interview with Express, Aldean reflected upon the best selling Country Album of the year Old Boots, New Dirt.

“We put so much time and passion into choosing the best songs for this album, and this brings a lot of hard work full circle for me. It’s like Christmas came early! I couldn’t do it without the best country music fans in the world, who never stop believing in what I do and always follow me, even if I may take a creative left turn every now and then.”

Unfortunately for fans, they can’t stream his music online. He was one of several artists like Taylor Swift who pulled the album off Spotify. His main intent was to purposely fairly compensate all the individuals who contributed to the album.

Listen to “Burnin’ It Down” the lead single off they album below.
