HIGHLIGHTS: JAKE OWEN blasted TOM PETTY for saying today's country music is "bad rock with fiddle." He said, quote, "It's unfortunate that he'd make a ridiculous, uneducated comment about a format he's not even a part of. But everybody makes ignorant comments from time to time."
LUKE BRYAN is at the top of his game musically. He's headlining shows, winning awards . . . selling records. What he is NOT doing is saying yes to Hollywood because he doesn't want to lose the momentum.
He says, quote, "I'm getting really, really amazing TV opportunities where it's quite lucrative financially and it would have been stuff in different public spotlights.
"I can't believe I'm turning them down, but when I huddle up with my core group of people and think about it, I think it's neat to just handle the headlining right now. I don't think I'm savvy enough as a headliner to start taking it for granted."
HIGHLIGHTS: According to a new survey, flip flops are more dangerous to drive in than high heels. 11% of people have gotten their flip flop stuck under one of the pedals. Driving in bare feet is the second most dangerous, followed by heels.
HIGHLIGHTS: Believe it or not, a neuroscientist in California says TANNING is better for your brain than classical music or puzzles. Those give you a temporary boost in concentration . . . but going out in the sun helps your LONG-term brain function. Exercise, eating well, playing an instrument, and having sex are also good for your brain.
Have a great day!
