In this edition of Nashville Stew, John Rich talks about filling his suitcase with Trump items from his hotel room while shooting Celebrity Apprentice; Grammy nominated artist to play free concert at Fort Riley for soldiers; new #1 country song on the charts..............read about it here.
John Rich survived another task on Celebrity Apprentice this past weekend....barely. John, who talked about the near miss on the Brian & Kellie morning show Monday, was the project manager for a task to create a marketing piece for the Trump Hotel Collection. That was out of John's comfort zone, he says, because he usually stays in less expensive hotels. In fact, his first stay in a Trump Hotel was while he was shooting Celebrity Apprentice and he took full advantage of it, "Let me just tell you by the time I got out of New York from shooting Celebrity Apprentice I had Trump slippers, Trump robes. I packed my suitcase full of everything in that hotel room I could get. You know just like a redneck, man. I am walking around in Trump slippers right now. (laugh)" Listen to Brian & Kellie's interview with John Rich here.

We get to hear Brad Paisley's new album earlier than expected. He has pushed the release date of his ninth studio album, 'This Is Country Music,' to May 23 -- one day before its previously scheduled in-store date. WooHoo! Brad already has two hits from the album. He released "This Is Country Music", the single, right after debuting it on the CMA Award stage last November. Now the project's second single, 'Old Alabama,' featuring the legendary group, Alabama, who reunited for the song is already in the Top 10 on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck charts after just seven weeks.
Kenny Chesney's 'Live a Little' has climbed to the top of both the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard country charts this week. Miranda Lambert's 'Heart Like Mine' comes in at No. 2 on Mediabase, followed by Sara Evans' 'A Little Bit Stronger' at No. 3. The two change places on the Billboard chart, with Sara in second place and Miranda in third.
