In the release, they mentioned several of their artists that will be recording songs for the album including Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, Eli Young Band and Cassadee Pope.

This week Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert’s smash hit ‘We Were Us’ has hit #1 on country radio, and retains the top spot on Hot Country Songs for another week. In addition, it holds onto #2 on Country Digital Songs. Florida Georgia Line’s ‘Stay’ beat them out on this chart and took #1 with ‘Stay’, bubbling just under the surface at #2 on Hot Country Songs and #9 on Country Airplay, with ‘Here’s To The Good Times’ sticking to #3 on Top Country Albums. In addition ‘Cruise’ has returned to #9 on Country Digital Songs, and ‘Round Here’ is at #18 on the same chart. Blake Shelton’s ‘Mine Would Be You’ remains a good seller, charting at #3 across Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay, although falling a little to #8 on Country Digital Songs. ‘Based On A True Story…’ has returned to #4 on Top Country Albums too.
"For me, they were the Beatles," said Jason Aldean about country music super group ALABAMA in ALABAMA & Friends, a one-hour concert event premiering Wednesday, November 27, 9:00 p.m./ET on Great American Country. "Through Randy's voice, the songs, his charisma on stage, he had people in the palm of his hand. Watching the reaction those guys got from the crowd was part of the reason I wanted to be an entertainer."

WARNING: Don’t take this week seriously, I’m delirious and
think I’m funny.
So, you may have noticed I didn’t do a chart roundup last
week. No special reason; I was just sleeping instead. I miss sleep.
So Luke Bryan’s hogging #1 across Hot Country Songs and
Country Digital Songs still with ‘That’s My Kind of Night’, which I think is
mighty selfish of him. It’s dropped down to #6 on Country Airplay though, and he’s
down to #4 on Top Country Albums with ‘Crash My Party’, so at least he’s
sharing a little. Florida Georgia Line are missing their chart glory so ‘Stay’
is biting at Luke’s heels at #2 on Country Digital Songs and #8 on Hot Country
Songs, but country radio clearly doesn’t care seeing as it’s still at #19.
Thomas Rhett’s R&B hit ‘It Goes Like This’ is clearly fooling a lot of
people and is still at #2 on Hot Country Songs and #3 on Country Digital Songs/Country
Airplay, while his debut album has managed to come in above sell-out Toby Keith
by placing at #2. An album track called ‘Get Me Some of That’ is at #6 on
Country Digital Songs. Speaking of Toby, ‘Drinks After Work’ is at #3, in case
