Darius Rucker talks about making country music, Big and Rich's John Rich is all about Donald Trump running for President and Kelsea Ballerini joins an elite club of country artists.

FOX News Radio Entertainment Correspondent, Michelle Pollino has the scoop on the Country music stars making headlines this week:

I'm Michelle Pollino.

Darius Rucker is touring the country this summer, supporting his most recent album Southern Style 

(Rucker) "With his record I just wanted to get countrier and get more to that place where I was... I wanted closer to those records that made me want to play country."

And for his former Hootie fans he's definitely got one more in him.

(Rucker) "I mean we had people who planned their whole summer vacations around Hootie tours and we just stopped playing. And I always thought that wasn't cool. So I just think we should do it one more time."

Whether you like him or not, Big and Rich's John Rich says Donald Trump's presidential nomination run makes this exciting.

(Rich) "He's gonna tell you exactly what he thinks and exactly what he feels you have to admit the debates are gonna be wildly entertaining."

Kelsea Ballerini's single "Love Me Like You Mean It" is Number One on both the Billboard Country and Mediabase country charts giving indie label Black River Entertainment their first Number One. She also joins Carrie Underwood in making the strongest female debut since 2006... that's some tomatoes.

And that's FOX Country on FOX News Radio.
