~~ Tim McGraw is off the sauce.
Tim has been clean and sober for five years. He told People magazine, "I drank a lot from my point of view, and I needed to stop. I felt quitting was something I needed to do. I didn't feel I had any moral high ground with my kids in the long run."
Tim added, "I'm in a good place right now. I really feel like this new album is not a culmination of the things I've done, it's a new beginning of the things I am going to do. I want to enjoy my career and having my family. I have a busy life, but it is a fulfilling life."
His "Two Lanes of Freedom" album will be released next Tuesday (Feb. 5).

~~Carrie Underwood is teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity.com to offer fans some of the best seats in the house on her "Blown Away Tour" while also benefiting the Academy of Country Music's ACM Lifting Lives and the C.A.T.S. Foundation at www.TicketsforCharity.com/ACMLiftingLives.
Carrie joins artists like Zac Brown Band, Brad Paisley and Toby Keith in giving fans access to seats in sold-out sections for concerts nationwide. Fans pay the same or better price they will find elsewhere – the difference is that their purchase through Tickets-for-Charity.com supports causes important to artists and fans, rather than ticket resellers.

The soldier says it would be "great" if his first handshake was with Blake Shelton. A fan tweeted the story directly to Blake.
Blake's response: "Wow.. Speechless. I will make this happen!!"
