Meek Mill Set To Receive A New Bail Hearing

(Radio.com) After being sentenced to two years behind bars for parole violation under controversial circumstances, Meek Mill is set for a new bail hearing. Mill, whose real name is Robert Williams, is scheduled to appear before Judge Genece Brinkley in Philadelphia on November 27.

Brinkley is the same judge that has accused of having an "infatuation" with Mill, and allegedly asked him to leave his management company Roc Nation, to sign with her friend's company.

"Since being convicted in this case a decade ago, he has suffered no new convictions, and has not engaged in other criminal activity," Meek's lawyers wrote in their motion (via Philly.com). "He does not present any danger to the community. He has matured, become a responsible father, acquired a profession in which he has excelled, conquered a drug habit, and generally been rehabilitated." Read more here.

Are Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber Back Together?

(Radio.com) Ah, young love. After famously separating from recent pop star beau, the Weeknd, Selena Gomez has been seen spending all kinds of quality time with ex, Justin Bieber.

Now, we have the first piece of hard evidence suggesting the two are hanging out as more than just friends. Gomez and her puppy Charlie were spotted at the L.A. Kings Valley Ice Center in Panorama City, CA, to watch Bieber play a little hockey.

The smoking gun, however, came when Gomez was spotted leaning over the boards to plant a big ol' kiss on the Biebs. The moment latest long enough for photos to be snapped and shared across social media. See pics here.

Blake Shelton Reads 'Sexiest Man Alive' Mean Tweets

(Radio.com) Blake Shelton didn't wait for Jimmy Kimmel's call. The country star, clearly amused by his selection as People's "Sexiest Man Alive," has shared his own version of Kimmel's famous "mean tweets" series, and it's very funny.

"Thank y'all for the supportive words!," Shelton wrote on Twitter, recording backstage at The Ellen DeGeneres Show. In the video, the singer goes in hard from the first mean tweet:

"Woke up this morning to the news that Blake Shelton is the sexiest man alive," he reads with a straight face. "RIP every sexy man in the world who died in the great sexy plague of 2017 overnight. You will be missed."

It just gets better from there. Check it out here.

Singled Out: Mike Mentz's Someday

Mike Mentz recently released a video for his new single "Someday" which will feature featured on his forthcoming album. To celebrate we asked Mike to tell us about the track and the clip. Here is the story:

"Someday" is the very first track on my new record SOUVENIR (coming in 2018). It's about two people who don't notice til it's too late that they've spent so much of their time and energy on things that don't really matter that they've completely lost out on the things that do.

We all make promises to ourselves that we swear we'll keep later. I'll take that trip -- I'll start that business -- I'll spend more time with my family. And we're absolutely sure we'll keep these promises...someday.

The thing is, for a lot of our dreams, someday has a funny way of never being today.

This song holds a mirror to that idea for me. It's a screaming reminder for me to live every day as close as possible to the way I'd live my last.

For the music video, I wanted the world to literally fly by this guy while he stared at a screen. My buddy and master cameraman John Eiberger suggested we shoot in time lapse, and I was immediately like "YES THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE'LL DO." My sweet home Chicago provided some super vibrant backdrops for the filming, which we were able to knock out with 7 shoots over as many months. I want to take this and every opportunity I get to thank my incredible team for helping me make this thing. From shooting to editing (Ben Winter) to finding filming locations, this bad boy took a village and I'm so grateful for their work.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you watch the video right here!

Eve Not A Fan Of Nicki Minaj's 'Break the Internet' Photo

(Radio.com) With hot takes flying fast and furious in response to the racy Nicki Minaj "Break the Internet" cover shot for Paper magazine, a fellow female rapper has stepped out to offer her own opinion.

During a recent interview, Eve had nothing but kind things to say about Minaj as a woman and an artist, recalling their experience working together on the movie Barbershop 3.

'She's a nice person. She's an amazing rapper and as a lyricist, I respect her," Eve explained on TV's The Talk. The rapper and actress recently joined the program as a co-host. "But as a woman, I personally would not be able to do that," she said in regards to the racy 'Minaj a Trois" photo shoot for Paper. "I think in this climate it's not good."

Rascal Flatts Battle Boyz ll Men On 'Drop The Mic'

(Radio.com) Country and R&B worlds collided last Tuesday night (November 15) when Rascal Flatts went head-to-head with Boyz II Men on the rap battle show, Drop the Mic.

The two groups took turns throwing some (friendly) shade. Rascal Flatts came out early with age jokes, singing, "I remember the '90s, when all your stars burned the brightest / Now you can't get on bended knee because of arthritis."

Boyz II Men came back with lines like, "All your tracks are covers, it's terribly hokey / Had 16 No. 1s, and it's basically karaoke." Ultimately, Boys II Men were too much for the guys of Rascal Flatts to handle and came out as champions. Watch the epic battle here.

Maren Morris Sets Wedding Date And Avoids Being Bridezilla

(Radio.com) Maren Morris and fiance Ryan Hurd have finally chosen a date for when they plan on tying the knot. Morris also joked that her "Seeing Bling" duet partner, Niall Horan, will also be singing at the couple's wedding. "Niall's performing!" she teased.

"We have a date now--it's March 24," Morris told E! News. "I feel like all the corners are knocked out. We've got the location, the date, the guest list--kind of--and I've got the groom! So, that's the most important part."

The wedding planning process has been fairly simple for Morris, who seems to be anything but a bridezilla. "I'm not like a very stuffy person, and I actually get really bored just sitting down for hours and hours," she said. "Ryan and I want it to feel like us, so it's going to be a party. There's going to be a margarita bar, oyster bar, a Motown DJ, my dog. All of it!" Read more here.

Lindsay Ell Exiting To Tour With Brad Paisley

(Radio.com) Lindsay Ell has been enjoying her time on the road this year with Brad Paisley and his Weekend Warrior Tour and she couldn't be more excited to rejoin the singer next year.

"Brad Paisley is arguably one of the coolest, I mean, he is one of the best guitar players in the world," Ell gushes to Radio.com. "The fact that we've been able to tour with him all year has been amazing to me. It's been so inspiring to watch him do what he does. The fact that we just released a bunch more tour dates is really exciting."

Ell shares that Paisley is a guitar nerd like herself and often shares his new amps and guitar pedals with her to test out. "Brad is so generous and so open. He has amps or new guitar pedals that he wants to check out so he'll invite us on stage at soundcheck and we can all try them out and live in guitar nerd world together for a minute," she says. "It's been so much fun being out on the road with him. Nothing makes a girl stand on her toes than trading guitar licks with Brad Paisley on stage every night." Read more here.

Chris Young Reflects On His Sister Joining the Marines

(Radio.com) Chris Young still remembers the day his younger sister, Dorothy, told him she was joining the Marines. As he explains, he was the last one in his family to learn the news.

Before his performance in Chicago last Wednesday (November 15) at Stars and Strings, which celebrates our nation's military heroes and their families, he spoke with Radio.com about the experience.

"She was trying not to tell me," he admits. "She told my whole family she was going into the Marine Corps and wanted to tell me last. She was worried I was going to be upset with her. But I'm so proud of her for that. It was something that she wanted to do and there is always going to be that connection that she holds to that and that I hold to everything that's a military cause for the rest of my life."

Young has traveled to Iraq, Germany and South Korea as well as all over the U.S. to perform for our troops and he says it's something that's important to him. It's also why he signed on to be a part of this year's Stars and Strings concert. Read more here.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill Talks 'The Rest of Our Life'

(Radio.com) Tim McGraw and Faith Hill released their first-ever collaborative album, The Rest of Our Life, on November 17. The project features 11 tracks including the CMA Award-nominated first single, "Speak to a Girl" and the Ed Sheeran co-penned "The Rest of Our Life."

"It's hard to believe we've never done a full album together," Tim McGraw tells Radio.com. "Recording it was a very special experience for us. It's a lot more than just duets. We really dug deep and we wanted to tell a story with this record."

Current single, "The Rest of Your Life" serves as the album opener and McGraw compliments the song's "simple imagery" and the way it details a relationship's lifespan.

"The whole beginning of how simply someone decides they want to ask someone to marry them and ask someone to spend the rest of their life together. You can see the beginning of a relationship, you can feel the middle of the relationship and you can think about the last part of a relationship as you grow old together," he explains. "I think that tells a great story and it certainly relates to us. For us, we felt that way immediately when we first started dating and we had long conversations about that, what we wanted our life to be like, how we wanted our kids to be raised. We laugh all the time about getting old together and watching TV."

Faith Hill then jumps in, detailing her fondness for the song and giving a little insight into her relationship with McGraw. "That's what happens when you find the one," she reflects. "You see your entire life in front of you and immediately you feel a security and a foundation that you feel like, despite anything that happens, that comes our way in life, we're going to be able to handle it because we have a partner now. To me that's what hit me the strongest about 'The Rest of Our Life.'" Read more here.

In this first installment we talk music, touring and staying connected with fans and loved ones with Scotty McCreery, RaeLynn, and the members of LoCash.

Scotty McCreery is currently gearing up for the release of his third album. The just-engaged American Idol alum says on the release, 'The biggest difference with this album and any other record is that it's so personal. Unless things change, every song on the record will be written by me." His new album will be coming for fans in the Spring of 2018. No doubt with the new album will also come more time out on the road, he explains how it's important for him to stay in touch with his fiance and family while he's away from home.

RaeLynn released her debut album WildHorse earlier this year and has been all over the country playing for fans ever since. She describes her music as country pop because of the artists she listened to growing up. 'I'm a product of my generation, I grew up listening to Destiny's Child and Dolly Parton, legit," RaeLynn explains. 'Everyone that's my age not only listens to one genre." She also opened up about the best way she keeps in touch with her fans, "I love to connect with them and I couldn't do that unless I had [access] to social media." She adds, "They don't even realize how much they mean to me sometimes." Read more here.
