Carrie Underwood Reveals Her Cute Halloween Plans With Son Isaiah – “I’ve blocked off some time to be able to take him trick-or-treating a little bit and got him a costume and everything,” she revealed. But Underwood also confesses balancing work life with mommy life isn’t just a walk in the park. “I’m not going to lie, it’s difficult when professionalism and your mommyhood collide—which is on a daily basis—but it’s wonderful,” she told us. “It’s like bring your baby to work every day. He’s just there, and it’s great he’s on the bus and helping me get ready. It might make things take a little longer, but he’s just my little sunshine. He makes me happy all day.” – See the Video at EOnline

Taylor Hicks gets a heaping helping of American cuisine as host of a new TV show, ‘State Plate’ – The “American Idol” winner, 40, has been traveling the country over the past six months, filming a new food and travel series, “State Plate,” for INSP. As host of the TV show, his mission is to explore the culture and cuisine of as many states as possible, via hands-on experiences that go from farm to table. “People ask me what I’ve been up to, and I can honestly say, ‘I’ve been milking a dairy cow. What have you been up to?'” Hicks says, laughing during a phone interview. “For me, personally, it’s been a very educational experience.” – Read more at AL.com

Swon Brothers bring years of harmonies to John Paul Jones Arena – Many fans of The Swon Brothers first discovered the duo and its trademark harmonies in 2013, during the fourth season of NBC’s “The Voice.” The vocal blend Zach and Colton Swon are known for, however — the one fans will hear when they open for Carrie Underwood on Saturday evening at John Paul Jones Arena — actually goes way back. “We’ve pretty much been doing this since we could make noise,” Zach Swon said with a chuckle. And pretty much literally at that; on a recent trip home, the Oklahoma natives were able to confirm it when their mother showed them some old family videos. – Read more at Daily Progress.com

Exclusive: Interview with singer/songwriter Luke Wade – Music has a healing power. It has not only helped people find happiness but for some people, music has contributed to the formation of their identity. Luke Wade is one such person. While you might remember him from The Voice, the singer’s journey started way before he came on the show. It proved to be a great platform for him to showcase his talent. However, with more than 10 years of experience as a musician, the singer does not want to be just remembered as the show’s participant. After two years of hard work, the singer is releasing his new album “Only Ghosts”. The album is set to release on January 13th. – Read more at Celebmix

Survivor: Jeff Probst explains the switch to three tribes – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You guys made the move from two to three tribes this week, which you’ve done before, but never with 16 people, I don’t think. Tell us why you decided to expand to three teams, rather than just a straight tribe shuffle that stayed at two. JEFF PROBST: There really isn’t any big secret plan. It’s just about keeping the tribes off base. Fortunately for us and them, we’ve done enough seasons that we’ve switched and merged at various times with various numbers so you can’t ever fully be sure about what is coming next. Going to three tribes just makes it very difficult for alliances to stay together. Even if you promise to stay together before a switch, the events that take place after the switch often have to take precedence over previous agreements. – Read more at Entertainment Weekly
