Today's Country Tidbits

Yesterday I told you about Tim & Faith and their new fragrance line. Today the story is Rascal Flatts and the clothing line they're working on. Inspired by their stylist, John Murphy, they've decided to be like Reba and branch out into retail clothing sales. “We’re right now in the design phase, but it’s definitely something we want to do. We’re looking for the right partner to help us implement those things right now.” It won't be in stores in time for Christmas, but maybe in time for their summer tour.

Lady Antebellum hits the road for their "Own the Night" tour next week, and one of the opening acts is Charles Kelley's brother Josh Kelley. How will that work out? According to Charles, “We’ll probably start out really friendly and then start fighting like brothers., it’s gonna be great. Man, we’ll probably play a lot of golf and have a lot of late-night writing sessions, I’m sure.” The tour kicks off Friday the 11th in Knoxville.

Didja miss Miranda Lambert on the Today show yesterday? Here you go...

The Band Perry is featured on "Home This Christmas," a track on Justin Bieber's new holiday album. They loved working with him, and want to make it permanent. According to Kimberly Perry, “Well, we invited him to be in the band because of his haircut. That’s kind of our superpower and it’s sort of his too. So, we thought, let’s all be in a band. But, he turned us down. I still have Bieber fever.”

Reba is the host for the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Award Ceremony on December 2. The event takes place at the Wynn Las Vegas, and will include several other country luminaries to be named later.

Congratulations to the Eli Young Band, who've earned platinum certification for "Crazy Girl."

Miranda Lambert is on Live! With Regis and Kelly today.

The tweet of the day is from Martina McBride: "Epic amazing family dinner tonight in our house. At one point all 3 girls were on the floor laughing"
