Each weekday morning on Kiss Country, we give you the latest entertainment news from Nashville, New York City and Hollywood!

I know most people know her from the Hunger Games movies but she’s really been pretty incredible in the X-Men series. Talking about Jennifer Lawrence… who has now announced that the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse will be her final time to play the role of Mystique.

Sing it with me… I’m Sexy and I Know It! REDFOO, part of the duo LMFAO, was the first contestant eliminated on Dancing with the Stars despite a huge improvement.

It’s not easy to hit a ball flying at you with a stick. Just ask Luke Bryan who picked up some lumber instead of his guitar in the Chicago White Sox batting cage yesterday at their spring training camp in Arizona. So how did he do? He put three in the dirt, completely whiffed on another and was able to smack on solid line drive.

So how do hit artists like Keith Urban write songs? Keith says his process is more complicated than you might imagine. He talks about conceptual soundscapes, rhythms, feels, melodies and themes he wants to address.

Like a lot of performers, Cole Swindell says he’s happiest when he’s on stage. Unlike most people who are afraid of public speaking, much less singing, he says he says there’s no other place he feels more comfortable and that he’ll even pretend the stands are full during soundcheck.

Finally, Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival Tour kicks off this Thursday in Nashville. Any idea of how many tickets he’s already sold? Check this out… he’s already sold over one million tickets! Also, word has it that he once PAID to have Taylor Swift NOT join his tour.
