Last Weekend’s Greatest Hits

Even if you only caught a few of the social media posts over the weekend, you’d know exactly how much love Carrie Underwood was feeling. Tweets were coming in from all over to wish her a happy birthday on Sunday (March 10).

And she was quick to thank everyone — fans, friends and followers — letting them all know just how she was spending her big day.

In other news, Shania Twain was riding off into the gender-balanced sunset, Brad Paisley shared his miracle, Little Big Town reminded all of us how good self-deprecating humor looks on Dolly Parton, Kelsea Ballerini went to Barbie’s birthday party, Dan + Shay ate some tequila-shaped cake, Keith Urban fell in love with a Girl, Chris Young cleaned up real nice, Thomas Rhett took his daughter Willa out on the water, Lauren Alaina fangirled over John Anderson, Tim McGraw wished his mom a happy birthday, and Kane Brown shared a few seconds of a new song that is so country — so country country — that it’s been viewed nearly a half a million times.

The only artist having a bad day on socials seemed to be Maren Morris, who had had it up to here with bitter (expletive)s.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She’s based in Chicago, but she’s always leaving her heart in Nashville.
