Harper Smith for Big Machine RecordsJust as Midland gets ready to compete for two Grammys at this weekend’s ceremony in New York City, the trio is giving fans an inside look at the making of their breakthrough record.

“It’s like this super team where everybody’s working to bring the song to its full potential,” lead singer Mark Wystrach says of creating their debut disc, On the Rocks. “This album is soaked in blood, sweat, tears and booze.”

“We took a lot of care to create a landscape of songs, an overall concept for the album, and to hopefully bring albums back a bit,” Jess Carson adds.

You can check out the behind-the-scenes video on YouTube now.

Meanwhile, Midland is set to play their second single, the Top 15 hit “Make a Little” Tuesday on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. You can watch for them starting at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.

Then on Sunday, the band competes for both Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the Grammys. Both nominations are for their debut single, “Drinkin’ Problem.” You can catch the show live from New York City, starting at 7:30 p.m. ET on CBS.

ABC/Image Group LA Brad Paisley has left his mark on Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena -- quite literally.

Along with artist Rob Hendon, Brad has painted a Music-City-themed mural on the first level of venue. In addition to guitars, a cowboy hat and a catfish, you’ll also spot Gnash, the mascot of Nashville’s Predators hockey team.

The artwork is titled “Smashville,” another reference to the Predators, who made it to the final game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs last year. You can check out a time-lapse video of the two working on the mural on YouTube.

While you can count on Brad stopping by to watch the Predators play as often as he can, he’ll also be bringing his own tour to the Bridgestone on Friday, April 6. Tickets for Brad’s Nashville date go on sale Friday.

On Thursday, the “Heaven South” singer kicks off the winter leg of his Weekend Warrior World trek at L.A.’s Staples Center. Dustin LynchChase Bryant and Lindsay Ell are opening the shows.

ABC/Lorenzo BevilaquaDolly Parton's music will play a central role in an upcoming movie starring Jennifer Aniston.

Dumplin’ is based on the popular young adult novel by Julie Murphy about a teen who enters a beauty pageant, and who also happens to be a huge fan of the music superstar from East Tennessee. Dumplin’ is a nickname for Willowdean -- which also happens to be the real name of Dolly’s oldest sister, Willadeene. Aniston plays the girl’s mother.

The musical comedy will feature classic Dolly tunes, according to E! News, as well as new music from the Country Music Hall of Famer. So far, we don’t know the film's release date.

This weekend in Nashville, Dolly picked up two trophies at the MidSouth Emmys: the Governor’s Award for her charitable work, as well at the Best Community Service honor for 2016’s Smoky Mountains Rise telethon to help victims of the East Tennessee wildfires.

MCA NashvilleJordan Davis’s breakthrough hit, “Singles You Up,” happens to be a song about wanting to steal another guy’s girl. But the Louisiana native reveals the idea for the clever turn of a phrase actually came out of a very different situation.

“My buddy I wrote that with had just gotten engaged,” Jordan tells ABC Radio. “We were messing with him about how he kind of out-kicked his coverage on his now-wife and we said that he was smart not to single her up. And right when we said it, we were kinda like 'Oh, gosh, dude! We gotta write that!'”

About two hours later, Jordan says they’d finished “Singles You Up.”

“It was a quick one…” he recalls. “Most of the time with me writing songs, it's a super-long process and I kinda go back and pick at stuff. But that one just felt so good, and we haven't done a lot of changin' on it.”  

“Singles You Up” is Jordan’s first top-20 hit, as well as the lead release from his debut album, Home State, which comes out March 23. He sets out on the White Wine and Whiskey Tour February 2 with newcomer Jillian Jacqueline.

ABC/Image Group LA Just as Kelsea Ballerini’s “Legends” is making a place for itself in country’s top five, the newly-married Mrs. Morgan Evans is also gearing up for her headlining tour in support her second album, Unapologetically.  Meanwhile, the singer is learning a lot about her fans, based on the feedback they're giving her on the album.

“The favorites that I've gathered so far are the sass bomb called 'Get over Yourself'...[and] my favorite, which is called 'In Between' seems to be resonating really well," Kelsea tells ABC Radio. "And then, a song called 'Miss Me More,' which is another sassy one. So they seem to like the sassy ones.”

The Knoxville, Tennessee native reveals she’s planning something a little different for the Unapologetically Tour.

“You know, this album is a concept album,” she explains. “It's a story, and I think I'm gonna play it like a story. I think I'm gonna play the record in order and really tell the story of how I wrote it.”  

The Unapologetically Tour kicks off February 8 in Birmingham, Alabama, with “You Broke Up with Me” hitmaker Walker Hayes opening. This summer, Kelsea heads out on the Graffiti U World Tour with Keith Urban.

ABC/Image Group LA She's still riding the wave of her first solo #1 on the country chart, but Maren Morris now has new music coming. It won’t be from her own album though: It’s a collaboration with hitmaking deejay/producer Zedd and electronic duo Grey.

Both Maren and Zedd shared the news of their collaboration on social media, along with the artwork for the song, “The Middle,” which features an exploding flower. We’ll be able to hear the song for the first time on Tuesday.

Zedd, who’s made a name for himself as a record producer, has teamed up with Ariana GrandeHailee SteinfeldAlessia Cara, and Paramore's Hayley Williams in the past. This won’t be Maren’s first time coloring outside the country lines, either: She also duets with pop star Niall Horan on “Seeing Blind” from his Flicker album.

Across the board, there’s no shortage of genre-bending country/pop crossovers these days. "Cruise" hitmakers Florida Georgia Line currently have two:  “Meant to Be” with Bebe Rexha and “Let Me Go” with Hailee Steinfeld, Alesso, and watt.

Warner Music NashvilleNewcomer Ashley McBryde’s Warner Nashville debut, Girl Going Nowhere, is set to arrive March 30.

The album takes its title from a track the Arkansas native performed during her Grand Ole Opry debut, one inspired by a bad experience in high school algebra class.

“…We were going around the room saying what we wanted to do when we grew up,” Ashley recalls. “When it got to me, I said, ‘I’m going to move to Nashville and write songs, and they’re going to be on the radio.’ The teacher looked at me and said, ‘That won’t happen and you better have a good backup plan.’”

“It didn’t put the fire out, it just added to it,” the “Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega” hitmaker explains.

Girl Going Nowhere’s lead single is one of four tracks available to stream or download now, including the just-released “American Scandal.” You can check out the song’s new music video on YouTube.

Ashley’s set to make her TV debut Tuesday when she plays Late Night with Seth Meyers, which airs at 12:35 a.m. ET on NBC. From there, she hits the road with Luke Combs on his Don’t Tempt Me with a Good Time Tour, while also squeezing in some March dates on Miranda Lambert’s Livin’ Like Hippies World Tour. 

Here’s the complete track listing for Ashley McBryde’s Girl Going Nowhere:

“Girl Goin’ Nowhere”
“Radioland”
“American Scandal”

Fans who participate will be rewarded with the chance to win a meet-and-greet with the reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year.

“I always try to combine my two passions, which are music and mutts,” Miranda says. “I’ve gotten to meet some amazing people that run shelters in the communities where we perform, and I always love connecting with other dog-loving fans.”

Jon Pardi joins Miranda on her 2018 trek, which covers Greenville, SC; Orlando, FL; and Atlanta, GA on its first weekend, before heading to the Northwest the first of February.

Warner Music Nashville“All on Me” hitmaker Devin Dawson grew up in California, used to be in a successful rock band, and realized not long ago that he’s happier wearing all black and white.  So when it came time to create the cover art for his debut album, it’s no surprise that he decided to color outside the lines, so to speak.

“I just had this vision of doing something a little different,” Devin tells ABC Radio. “[Album covers for] new artists, country or whatever, usually [are] a picture of your face and a logo. And there's reasons for that, because people don't know who you are, so they need to see your face, y'know? But I wanted to do something a little different that still kind of satisfied that.”

So Devin hired a talented illustrator to draw him, and ended up with a striking image that’s part puzzle, part map of the album.

“He drew my face in the middle of it. It's kind of like this stylized version of me,” Devin explains. “And it's surrounded with what I call 'nuggets' from the record… all of those lyrics are kind of represented on this album cover."

"So, hopefully [listeners] can see what lyric means what, from what piece of the art and how they all work together," he adds. "Hopefully people can...dive into it and keep discovering something new every day.”  

Dark Horse is new in stores and online today, and features Devin’s breakthrough top-15 hit, “All on Me.”

ABC/Image Group LA When LANCO decided they wanted to name their debut album after one of their songs, the closing track, “Hallelujah Nights,” ended up being the hands-down favorite.  “That song kind of just encompasses the themes of the album,” lead singer Brandon Lancaster explains.

“We just wanted this album to reflect who we are and our relationships and our circumstances, and the things we've gone through," Brandon says.

"But at the same time, still living in that moment, still looking around you and savoring all the moments that you're given, and knowing that these people that you're around and these moments that you're given...one day they'll just be memories," he adds. "And they go by way too fast.”

With their first #1, “Greatest Love Story,” already in the history books, Brandon confesses that the five friends are getting a little sentimental.

He says, “We already can look back, and we already kind of are nostalgic about certain times, when there were four out of five of us living in one house, or just certain things like that.”

That sense of nostalgia, Brandon says, underlines the album's theme of living in the present, but celebrating and cherishing the past.

Hallelujah Nights, new in stores and online today, also features LANCO's new single, “Born to Love You," which opens the record.

ABC RadioChris Janson’s February 5 show at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium is a sell-out.

That accomplishment is especially sweet for the “Fix a Drink” hitmaker, since he started his career playing across the alley from the Ryman, at the famed Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge.

“I could not be more grateful and excited to headline this sold-out show in town,” Chris says. “This is a highlight night in my career. I remember playing nights in the bar, seeing stars walk up the back steps and just thinking, ‘Will I ever get there?’ It means a lot.”

Following his show at the “Mother Church of Country Music,” Chris will hit the road with Lauren Alaina and his label mate Cole Swindell on the Reasons to Drink tour.

The second single from Chris’s Everybody album, “Drunk Girl,” is currently climbing the chart.

ABC/Mark LevineIf you’re hoping Maren Morris’s next single will be the first taste of new music from her sophomore album, well, you’ll likely have to wait a little longer. The Texas native tells Billboard she expect to release a fourth single from her 2016 debut, Hero, as the follow-up to her #1, “I Could Use a Love Song.”

With that self-penned tune becoming her first solo chart topper, Maren says she hopes the climate for female artists on country radio is improving.

“It’s maybe a little healthier, but we definitely have a ways to go,” she tells Billboard. “When you look at the chart, there’s just Kelsea Ballerini and me in the top 20, so we still have work to do.  Hopefully Kelsea’s ‘Legends’ will go to #1 soon.”

“What makes me the most happy,” Maren says of "Love Song" going #1, “is that it means that you can just be yourself, not compromise your art and still be successful at radio. I am hoping it’s not just a step forward for me, but for other female artists as well.”

“I Could Use a Love Song” is competing in the category of Best Country Solo Performance Grammy at the Grammys on January 28 in New York City.  Meanwhile, Maren tweeted she’ll definitely be immortalizing her first #1 with a tattoo -- and added the hashtag "#SorryDad."
