The biggest night in country music gave us plenty to talk about at the water cooler this week. The performances were on fire, (some literally, like Miranda Lambert) they had us singing along, dancing, laughing, and even tearing up. Reba was the “Hostess with the mostest” as she delivered some zingers throughout the night and laid down some truths about women in the industry.
Speaking of zingers, how about this truth bomb from Reese Witherspoon.
Need to see more inclusion for women on country radio! https://t.co/4f92QixbUe

Love certainly was all around as Country stars Kelsea Ballerini and Kacey Musgraves both got engaged over Christmas weekend!!
Ballerini is now engaged to Country Artist/Singer/Songwriter Morgan Evans who she met March 12 while hosting an award show! There was some definite chemistry there as the two have fallen in love and decided to spend the rest of their lives together in less than a year! When you know, you know!
Can we talk about the ring for a minute? I mean… wow!! He definitely called dibs!!
This morning, 9 months and 13 days later, he got down on one knee in the kitchen while I was burning pancakes and asked me to marry him. Loving him has been the greatest gift of my life. And now I get to do it for life. #HECALLEDDIBS

Musgraves is engaged to Singer/Songwriter Ruston Kelly. The couple have also been dating for a short while, but love is love!
Kelly proposed in Musgraves childhood home, a place she said really shaped who she is today.
We had just been at my parent’s house randomly having a night of watching bittersweet old home tapes of all these beautiful family memories that were made in this little, old country house I grew up in that I now have. We came back to that house afterwards and he had somehow pulled off having my sister + brother in-law sneak off and completely decorate my childhood bedroom in the most nostalgic and perfect Christmas decorations. I was bewildered and confused when I saw it all and turned around and the song “Two For The Road” by Henry Mancini was playing (this song is so emotional and sweet..it’s one of my favorites..you have to go listen) and he was on his knee with a baby pink velvet ring box and the sparkliest thing I’ve ever seen! 💖It was so special. Of all the places in the world I’ve gotten to see, nowhere could mean more than this happening in tiny Golden, Texas in the
Congratulations to the happy couples!!!
