RIHANNA and ASAP ROCKY welcomed their baby boy on Friday the 13th, though his name hasn’t been revealed.

When WYNONNA announced she was doing THE JUDDS Final Tour, it sounded like Martina McBride would be taking NAOMI JUDD’s place.  Well, although Martina IS the “very special guest” . . . she won’t be the only one. There will be “iconic guests” at different stops.  Details are still being ironed-out, but know some of the performers include Little Big Town, Ashley McBryde, Trisha Yearwood, Brandi Carlile . . . and Faith Hill. Faith will help close out the tour on October 29th in Lexington, Kentucky. Wynonna said, “What a full-circle moment it will be to end the tour in Kentucky where it all began. “It means so much to have my sister-friend, Faith, join me for this musical celebration.  It is pretty amazing . . . all of the people who have come forward to offer up their time and gifts.  I am feeling extra grateful.”

If you’re a JIMMIE ALLEN fan, this will make you like him even more.  He was invited to perform at the Billboard Music Awards, but he said no. He was already booked at a charity, and he wanted to keep his word.  “I have this firm belief that when you make a commitment to do something, show up.  I agreed to do a charity event for a car dealership in New Jersey that day. [It] was probably one of the best decisions that I’ve made because I got to see the organization that benefited, and all the people that were there.” Jimmie believes that decision helped him land the coveted opening slot on Carrie Underwood’s Denim & Rhinestones Tour.  “The same day I passed on the Billboard opportunity and agreed to do the charity show, the Carrie offer came in. I tell people, ‘Always try to do the right thing.’  My decision was made before [Carrie’s offer], but it’s great how life can reward you for doing the right thing.”

ED SHEERAN and his wife welcomed a second baby girl.

Craig Morgan has added a new honor to his list of military accomplishments: He was inducted into the U.S. Field Artillery Hall of Fame on Wednesday, May 18. The honor was bestowed upon Morgan thanks to his 17 years in the U.S. Army and Army reserves. The U.S. Field Artillery Association inducted a total of 48 men and women into its 2022 class, the first in the association’s history. The distinction serves to recognize “a wide array of Field Artillery men and women who have contributed greatly to the branch.” As an Army veteran, Morgan has long been a supporter of the U.S. military. To show his support, he has made 16 trips to perform for troops overseas. He was also awarded with the USO Merit Award and the Army’s Outstanding Civilian Service Medal. Morgan shares more about his military service in his forthcoming book, God, Family Country, which is due out on Sept. 27. The memoir also details his journey in country music. In addition to working on his book, Morgan has kept busy this year as a castmember on the CBS reality series, Beyond the Edge, which found nine celebrities — including fellow singer Lauren Alaina — competing to survive in the Panama jungles and raising money for their chosen charities. Morgan will kick off his 11-date Operation Finally Home Welcomes the “God, Family, Country Tour” With Craig Morgan on October 19 in Green Bay, Wisc.

RYAN HURD’s message to the Class of 2022 is “try everything.”  “You don’t have to know what you’re going to do for the rest of your life right now.  I was a sociology [major] in college and now I’m a songwriter, so anything is possible.”   

ELLE KING and DIERKS BENTLEY get clever in their Western-themed “Worth a Shot” video.  Instead of a shoot-out with guns . . . they do it with shots of whiskey.  And in the case of Elle, real whiskey.  That’s what she tells Dierks when the cameras stop rolling at the end.
