Headlines: Carrie Underwood’s Idol Mustang, Lauren Alaina Plans Wedding

Carrie Underwood Still Drives the Mustang She Got for Winning ‘American Idol’ – One of the prizes Underwood got from winning American Idol was a brand-new Ford Mustang convertible. That car is now 18 years-old, and she not only still has it, she will still occasionally drive it. “I do still have the car that I won when I won American Idol,” Underwood reveals during an interview with Today’s Country Radio With Kelleigh Bannen on Apple Music. “So I have my blue Mustang. And every once in a while something will happen where I’ll have my car getting serviced or whatever, and I’ll get to drive that car. And it always makes me want to drive it more, because it was such a pivotal point in my life. That was the car that I was driving around when I first moved to Tennessee, and I’m very, very glad I still have that car. – Read more at Taste of Country

Lauren Alaina Dishes on Wedding Planning: ‘Maybe Dolly Parton Can Make a Video’ – The “Road Less Traveled” singer credits her Opry invitation and later induction as the “best days of my life,” which means that her wedding to fiancé Cam Arnold is going to have to be ready to compete for the coveted title. “In fact, that day, I made a joke that my wedding was going to have to be pretty good, so we’re working on it. Our wedding day’s got some serious living up to do. Maybe Dolly Parton can make a video,” Alaina tells PEOPLE — only half-joking, referring to the video Parton made for her induction ceremony. And, beyond still figuring out the food, Alaina concedes that she and Arnold are in “full planning mode.” The couple has a venue, a date (which they’re keeping secret, for now) and Alaina even has the dress. – Read more at People

Speaking to host Henry Louis Gates Jr., Crews opened up about his father’s struggle with alcohol addiction, which translated to abusive tendencies. “I wet the bed ’til I was 15 years old because I did not know what was going to happen every night. I’d wake up to screaming, glass breaking. I said, ‘I gotta find a way out,'” he said. What the 54-year-old didn’t expect to hear was that Crews Sr. also had a troubled childhood. – Read more at Today
