Today's country tidbits...

This weekend, a road trip to Nashville might be in order, especially if you can do it on two wheels. Sunday, Dierks Bentley's Miles and Music for Kids celebrity motorcycle ride and concert happens. Registration starts at 10, the ride starts at 1pm at Harley Davidson Cool Springs, and the concert starts at 2 at Riverfront Park. Musicians include Dierks, Darius Rucker, Wynonna, Eric Church, 3 Doors Down, Michelle Branch, and Heidi Newfield.

Congrats are in order for Deana Carter, who married beau Brandon Malone last Saturday on a California beach. The newlyweds are honeymooning in California, driving and camping out.

California's Stagecoach Festival 2010 has a stellar line-up, including Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn, Sugarland, Billy Currington, Gary Allan, Phil Vassar, Jamey Johnson and lots more. $99 gets you the whole weekend when tickets go on sale 10/16.

If Brad can do it, Taylor can, too. Taylor Swift has tacked on more tour dates, including several in Australia. Kellie Pickler and Gloriana are along for the ride, too.

The Garth-in-Vegas rumors are still swirling, and Mr. Brooks himself added a bit of fuel to the fire by announcing a press conference this coming Thursday.

The audio is awful, but the video is great. Luke Bryan's son Bo was on stage with him at his cd release concert in Leesburg, GA last week. The little boy's got rhythm, and his daddy's cutes! And you can't even tell that Luke's tour, which started that night, started off badly: he left Nashville for three weeks on the road, and left his undies and belts at home.

American Ride is Toby Keith’s 19 #1 song.

Congratulations and condolences to Jeff Bates, who lost his Mom this past Sunday. He and his wife, Kelly, are expecting their first child in late April of next month.

Artists on tv today - Lady Antebellum is on the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, and Toby Keith visits with Ellen.
