The New York Post is reporting that Kenny Chesney wants to leave his current record label and find one that will market him as a mainstream artist. Kenny is with Sony Music's BNA Records and is reportedly looking for a record label that will pay him $30 million for a 5 album deal and a promise to market him as a "mainstream" artist. His manager said, "This is very inaccurate. We have no plans to be anything but a country-music artist ... Also, we have enjoyed a long-term, successful relationship with Sony ... The numbers you speak about and Warner Bros., etc., are purely rumors that are far from the truth."
Eric Church has his first number one song – “Drink In My Hand” from the critically acclaimed album, Chief. “This is the 10th single we have released to radio,” explains Church. “It is truly the greatest example of belief, dedication, determination and plain old hard work that we have achieved this milestone. I can’t thank the EMI staff and country radio enough for making this happen and believing in the music. I can’t think of a better way to kick off a tour!” Eric's first headlining tour is underway. He calls it the "Blood Sweat & Beers" tour.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert say having a simple breakfast at home together means a lot to them. "Doing laundry while watching Good Morning America or Say Yes to the Dress, or Miranda cooking dinner for me and me telling her how good it is -- those kinds of things are a major big deal for us," Blake tells Redbook. Blake is trying to be a good husband to Miranda. Blake says, "I think you've got to be confident and a bit of a pushover. Obviously, you've got to be a loyal person."
Blake on the cover of Redbook's February issue, will be on stands today (January 17th).
