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

I’ll be honest, I haven’t been to see the movie 50 Shades of Grey yet for a lot of reasons: I haven’t had time, I think I might get embarrassed and probably most of all, I’m afraid who will see me there. With that being said, I have read the books and I’ve never fully bought into Jamie Dornan in the role of Christian Grey or Dakota Johnson as Anastacia for that matter. All that aside, apparently there have been rumors that Jamie is leaving the franchise. Yes, we’re calling it a franchise at this point. I guess there’s no question now of whether or not there will be a sequel. Either way, his reps are denying it. But if it’s true, can we revisit things with Charlie Hunnam and Matt Bomer??? Please?

Lousiana’s own Hunter Hayes talks to himself… Apparently, he’s done so since he was a kid. He says he talks stuff through with himself to figure things out. People laugh at him of course, but he says that fine by him! BTW, just in case you missed it, Hunter will be here with Lady A and Sam Hunt Friday, May 8th at the CenturyLink Center. Tickets go on sale this Friday, but we’ve got your chance to beat the box office coming up!

If you’ve ever suffered from writer’s block, you’re in good company. Keith Urban admits that at times he’s convinced that his songwriting well has dried up. He says after he finishes a record, he’s wiped out… there’s just nothing there. Fortunately for us, he hasn’t given up yet!

We love the Zac Brown Band here in Kiss Country, or as Gary refers to them, ZBB… and they’ve got a huge show coming up… they’re going to be the musical guest on the March 7th edition of Saturday Night Live. It’ll be their first time on the show… but it won’t be just their first, oh no… It’ll also be a first appearance for host Chris Hemsworth! Yum!
