Eric Church Tops Charts With 'Some Of It'

Eric Church's "Some Of It" tops both the Billboard and Mediabase charts this week. The song was co-written by Eric, but it wasn't originally intended to make his current Desperate Man album. It wasn't until Eric's wife played the song for a friend of theirs that he realized the album wasn't complete without it.

He tells us: "It was such a blessing that happened. It wasn't going to be on the album. It was just one of those freak things that I put it on the album, the last song on the album. The album was done, and all of a sudden it becomes the pillar, one of the pillars on the album. I think it's one of the great things about music is you just never know what's going to happen until it's all said and done. You can try to plan all you want to, but you'll probably not going to figure it out."

Eric continues on his Double Down Tour this fall. It resumes on September 13th in Green Bay, Wisc.

Garth Brooks Breaks Attendance Record In Boise

Garth Brooks' back-to-back shows at Alberstons Stadium in Boise, ID over the weekend broke attendance records by drawing 86,000 people across both nights. The shows also marked the first-ever concerts at Albertsons Stadium and the largest entertainment event in Idaho history.

On Friday (July 19th), Garth invited Blake Shelton to join him for the live debut of their current duet, "Dive Bar," which they filmed for a live video. They did two takes of the song, between which Blake entertained the crowd with a performance of his chart-topping hit "God's Country."

Since working with The Voice star, Garth has turned into quite the Blake fan. He tells us: "If you're lucky in this business, someone's going to call you the nicest guy on the planet. The nicest guy on the planet – Blake Shelton. This guy has said ‘yes' to everything. Sweetest guy. No ego whatsoever. And talented. He's the best guy on the planet."

The next stop on Garth's Stadium Tour will be Regina, SK's Mosaic Stadium show on August 10th. That show sold out in under a hour, averaging just over 75,000 tickets in each city. Garth recently added a second date in Regina, SK on August 9th due to demand.
