Gabby Barrett on Newlywed Bliss, Country Stardom at 20, and How Charlie Puth Gave Her a Pop Crossover Push – As far as marriage goes, I think there’s always a lot of stereotypes. Somehow, we’ve come up with the stereotype that people should (wait to) get married when they’re 26, 27. I don’t even know where that number came from, when I have my aunt and uncle who’ve been married for 60 years, and they got married when they were 15 or 16. People are always going to have opinions, but my husband and I knew that it was right for us at our ages and what we’re doing. And so we just feel like the Lord’s really guiding us with everything that we’re doing and we just feel very thankful. – Read more at Variety.com

The 25-year-old country singer placed fourth in the dancing competition show last season and says being on the show was “such a blessing” after her split with John Crist. With the latest contestants officially announced on Wednesday, Alaina tells ET’s Rachel Smith that the celebs should “have fun, take pictures” and “connect with people” while “having a good time and making friends.” And, above all else, she notes to “celebrate yourself.” “I loved my hosts, but I also love Tyra Banks,” Alaina replies. “But my favorite part about Dancing With the Stars though was, hands down, Ally Brooke. She is an angel and has become one of my greatest friends. We all became a huge family but specifically her. She was just so kind and it was really fun to see this pop star girl just loving Jesus and making people banana bread every week. She’s a precious little cupcake.” – Read more at WKYC Studios
