Today's country tidbits...

Time Magazine's Best of Everything of 2009 is out, and two country albums made their list of Top 10 Albums of 2009. Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" landed at #4, with their writer calling her Nashville's best tough chick. Brad Paisley's "American Saturday Night" didn't just make the list, it dominated it, landing at the #1 spot. Time calls him country's most underrated star.

Craig Morgan and Chris Young headed to the middle east on a tour of military bases and hospitals a couple of months ago, taking along Nan Kelly of GAC. Tonight on GAC, watch some of the highlights of that tour, as Craig and Chris show up to say thanks to our military men and women who are in harms' way.

Speaking of Chris Young, he recently got his first royalty check as co-writer of "Gettin' You Home." Since it went to #1, the check was a lot bigger than any royalty check he'd ever gotten before, so he decided to splurge. What did he get...a new Porsche? A new tour bus? Nope...he bought a new washing machine. He's catching some grief from his friends, that's for sure!

Jason Aldean had such a good time with his "Wide Open" tour that he's tacking on 30 more dates. He'll start January 22nd in Greenville, SC with Eric Church opening for him there, and the rest of the tour dates will showcase Luke Bryan as the opening act.
