Dierks Bentley stepped back and watched, becoming just another fan as his daughter Evie sang Elle King‘s part of “Different for Girls” in Indianapolis over the weekend. The 7-year-old proved her daddy wasn’t just joking when he said his girls knew all the words to his songs.

The USA Olympic swim team are making their way down to Rio for this year’s games, and what’s a road trip without a few singalongs?
During their own take on carpool karaoke, the Olympians jam out to a hodgepodge of songs, including Zac Brown Band‘s 2008 hit, “Chicken Fried,” a track that recently came in at No. 28 on Taste of Country’s countdown of the top songs of the century.
“I thank god for my life / And for the stars and stripes / May freedom forever fly, let it ring / Salute the ones who died / And the ones that gave their lives so we don’t have to sacrifice / All the things we love / Like our chicken fried,” the swimmers sing, while those in the back seat proudly hold up the American flag.
The shoutout to country music and American pride part of the video is our favorite, but we highly suggest you watch the whole thing for a good laugh. Songs from artists including Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Carly Pearce and many more make an appearance, as well as iconic theme songs from television shows Friends and That ’70s Show.
So maybe the Olympians flew down to Rio, as opposed to carpooling all the way down to Brazil — after all, they would need one major playlist for a journey that long by car. Either way, we’ll support the American athletes while they compete for Olympic gold starting Friday night (Aug. 5).
Ronnie Milsap will perform at the Fofum in Rome on Friday, Aug. 12. I got a chance to speak to him earlier this week.
Tickets are on sale now at the Forum Box Office or online at http://www.ronniemilsap.com/ or http://www.forumevents.org/.
Hope to see you at the Forum August 12.
The Pistol Annies just can’t stay away from the stage: The country trio made up of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley performed together on Friday night (July 15), during Lambert’s Keeper of the Flame Tour stop in Rogers, Ark.
Early into her set at the Walmart AMP, Lambert welcomed Monroe and Presley to the stage to sing “Hell on Heels” and “Takin’ Pills,” both from 2011’s Hell on Heels album. Readers can press play on the video above to watch a snippet of their performance of “Hell on Heels.”
The Annies have been known to show up at Lambert’s shows: In October of 2015, they performed together at an Augusta, Ga., stop on Lambert’s Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour; however, they haven’t released any new music since their sophomore disc, Annie Up, in 2013. That June, the trio abruptly canceled all of their upcoming concerts, and rumors of a breakup began swirling, but all three artists have denied the rumors of tension among them.
“We’ve been missing each other a lot,” Monroe said in November of 2015, adding that a reunion is “definitely brewing.”
“We have a lot of song ideas going,” she said at the time. “I feel like it’s soon.”
Still, Monroe explains, they “never want to force it.”
“You know, Pistol Annies started out that it was just organic: Me and Miranda thought of it on a couch; she had never met Angaleena, and we called her and got started,” Monroe recalls. “… If we’re too busy, then don’t force it. There’ll be a time when things let up a little bit, then we’ll make more music.”
In the years since Pistol Annies’ last album, Lambert, Monroe and Presley have all released solo projects. Lambert is set to release a brand-new single, “Vice,” on Monday (July 18).
