We are bringing you an update on the latest country music news live from Music City. In the video below, we will cover the following topics. Here we go.. 

Scotty McCreery has an exciting month ahead. Not only will he release his forthcoming album, Seasons Change, on March 16, the country star is also now celebrating his first No. 1 hit. 

"Five More Minutes" was inspired by McCreery's Grandaddy Bill. The American Idol alum co-wrote the track alongside Frank Rogers and Monty Criswell. Also, don't miss McCreery and his relatives this summer on Celebrity Family Feud.

It was announced last week that Reba McEntire will indeed return to Las Vegas April 15 to host the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards. Chris Stapleton leads with 8 nominations while Thomas Rhett follows with 6. The 2018 ACM Awards will broadcast live on CBS April 15th from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The Nashouse sat down with breakout country star, Kane Brown, to discuss his first-ever No. 1 single, "What Ifs." The 24-year-old talks all about working with his collaboration partner, Lauren Alaina, why he's "always looked up to her," and more.

We would like to now introduce you to Ward Thomas. The country duo from London consisting of twin sisters, Catherine Thomas and Lizzy Ward Thomas, released their sophomore album, Cartwheels, in 2016. They have since put out an EP titled, A Shorter Story, which covers some of their favorite tracks.

Last, but certainly not least, the Nashouse spoke with Sister Hazel all about their new music. The southern rock band's new EP, Water, was released in early February and debuted at No. 4 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.

"We kind of know each other's strengths now. Back in the day we used to kind of guess who was gonna do what. Now, we know exactly what we're gonna do," Ryan Newell said.
