Dustin Lynch sets out to conquer the Great White North with his old pal, Thomas Rhett

Broken BowStarting today, Dustin Lynch will be “Ridin’ Roads” in the Great White North, as he joins Thomas Rhett for the Canadian leg of his tour.

“It’s exciting for me,” Dustin admits. “We’ve been up there a few times, but we haven’t done really any extensive touring up there.”

“And the fans are just awesome,” the native of Tullahoma, Tennessee adds. “They’re really passionate about country music. So I’m excited to get up there and do a legit run of shows. It’ll be exciting just to go do that, because it’s new for me.”

Dustin continues: “You know, it’s not like we’ve played there three times already, and I know what the backstage locker room looks like. So it’ll be some exciting new sights and definitely a lot of faces we’ve never seen before.”

Dustin reveals this tour is also something he and Thomas Rhett have envisioned for a long time.

“TR and I came up through this together,” Dustin explains, “and to get to go tour with him is like — and he and I have already texted about it. It’s like, ‘Can you believe this is real life? Like we’re getting to tour together like we’ve always talked and dreamed about doing.'”

“We just didn’t know TR was gonna be an international celeb when we did it,” he says with a smile. “So it’s gonna be a lot of fun to get up there and make some memories with him.”

Tonight, Dustin and TR play Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec. Fans can expect to hear Dustin’s new single, “Ridin’ Roads,” the follow-up to his most recent #1, “Good Girl.”

Born to run: While on the treadmill, Carly Pearce can also “talk on the phone, text, tweet, Instagram”

ABC/Image Group LAIf you keep up with Carly Pearce on her socials, you probably know the Kentucky native is an avid runner.  But her fiance, Michael Ray, has also let it slip that during her workouts, Carly’s quite the accomplished multi-tasker — and she’s owning up to it.

“I swear, it’s not good to be marrying somebody who’s in the industry and can tell all of my secrets,” Carly jokes, but confirms, “Yes! I can pretty much do anything on a treadmill: I can talk on the phone, text, tweet, Instagram.”

But don’t think that’s because Carly’s not pushing herself: She’s a serious runner.

“I go anywhere between like 6.5 and 9 [miles per hour] on a treadmill,” she explains. “I love to run. That’s the other thing that I love, other than country music.”

The “Every Little Thing” hitmaker explains that the right tunes are an essential part of her workout — but it’s probably not the ones you’d expect.

“I’m one of those runners, I literally cannot run without music,” Carly tells ABC Radio. “I can’t listen to a podcast, I don’t wanna listen to anything but music. And it’s usually techno or Jay-Z.”

Carly’s discovered her love for running makes her a better performer, especially when she’s playing big venues.

“I think that cardio helps your stamina,” she points out, “which helps especially — I figured out on the Luke Bryan tour last year — when we were playing stadiums.”

“Those catwalks are really long,” Carly continues, “so I was very thankful to just be a runner and have that stamina, because you can get winded really easy.”  

Next week, Carly hits the road with Jason Aldean on his Ride All Night Tour, starting May 3 in Uncasville, Connecticut. Meanwhile, the debut single from her forthcoming sophomore album, “Closer to You,” is nearing the top 25.
