FGL's Tyler Hubbard Is Offering His Services As A 'Dudela'

FGL's Tyler Hubbard is getting pretty good at being a labor partner. He helped his wife, Hayley, through two deliveries now, the latest one on Monday (August 19th) with the birth of their son, Luca. Tyler shared some intimate photos of moments from Hayley's labor and delivery on Instagram, giving a shout out to their birth coach, called a doula, and jokingly writing, "Now offering my 'DUDEla' services for those in need of a good shoulder to lay on during contractions, back rubs, and a good flashlight for when the head starts showing. Please contact my agent for booking . . ."

Tyler has also been posting about how exhausted he is since the arrival of Luca, who joins one-year-old big sister Liv.

Matt Stell Is Having Fun Watching Fans Connect With His Music

Matt Stell is watching his fan base steadily grow with the success of his debut single, "Prayed For You." Those fans are also more familiar with his music than ever before, which Matt tells us exclusively has been so much fun to watch. "We've been playing since the song hit the chart, and to see the amount of phones up and mouths moving as we play not only 'Prayed For You' but some other stuff off the EP too, to see people singing along in places I've never been, and to see people recording it, that change has been really fun to watch. It's been really humbling to watch and it's really cool."

Matt will hit the road with Chris Young on his Raised On Country Tour beginning next month.

He will make a guest appearance on ABC's reality series, Bachelor in Paradise where he'll sing "Prayed For You." The episode is scheduled to air on Tuesday (August 27th) at 8 p.m. ET.

Old Dominion Give Wings To 'Songland' Contestant's Song In Jeep Commercial

Old Dominion were the guest recording artists on NBC's hit series Songland on Wednesday (August 21st) as they looked for a song to be featured in a new Jeep brand commercial. The band, along with Jeep/FCA CMO Olivier Francois, chose Songland contestant Katelyn Tarver's "Young" to be released and featured in the 90-second commercial, in which Tarver appears as a character.

Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey said, "Songwriting is what this band is built on. Our love for writing songs and for the people who write them is what got us where we are today. We jumped at the chance to be a part of Songland because it meant that the public would get a glimpse of what we have known for years: Without songwriters there would be no music."

Songland provides talented up-and-coming songwriters with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to collaborate with visionary music producers who are responsible for today's biggest hits.

"Young" is now available to stream on iTunes.

Thomas Rhett Is 'Completely Sick Of' Some Of His Daughters' Favorite Songs

Thomas Rhett is a hands-on dad, typically spending most of his time off the road with his wife, Lauren, and their two toddler daughters, Willa Gray and Ada James. If you keep up with Thomas' social media accounts, then you know a favorite activity of the girls' is watching their favorite animated movies.

Thomas tells us he's watched countless viewings of certain films whose music he'd be happy to never hear again. "In my house, between Coco and Frozen, I am completely sick of ‘Let It Go' and Frozen. And then this song called ‘Remember Me' that's in Coco that we literally watch every single day, and now has drifted to The Little Mermaid, so I would say that those three songs, if I never heard them again, I would not be upset."

Thomas' Very Hot Summer Tour revs back up on September 5th in Sioux Falls, SD.

He's currently racing up the charts with "Remember You Young," which was inspired by his daughters.
