Hasting & Co. pay tribute to the morning after and Sunday brunch parties after a wild night out in their new video "Brunch Drunk." Packed with White Claws, mimosas, and donuts the bright fun new video perfectly encapsulates Sunday Funday.
In an interview with CMT, the duo explains that the idea for the song came from hearing all the crazy stories from friends and fans about wild bachelorette parties and the brunches that followed the next day. "We wanted all of the props to be over-the-top and the coloring to be bright," Logan says. "We wanted to stay true to our country roots, but push the envelope. The video is meant to be a three-minute escape. It’s meant to feel like one big party." I hope you enjoy the clip, and also be sure to keep an eye out for a cameo from Jed Wyatt, the controversial winner of last year's shocking season of The Bachelorette!

Born and raised in Ontario, Canada to two musical parents, Callie McCullough was destined to be an artist at a young age. Often on the road with her mother touring, she later started a band with her mom which lasted for eight years. At the age of 24, Callie made the move to Nashville to pursue her own path. Callie’s music has a traditional sound that takes her back to her roots growing up to Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, and Carol King.
With the songs and a vision, Callie is set to release her solo album “After Midnight” on March 27th. The six-song is emotional and eclectic. "After Midnight" also features first-class picking from members of the Grammy-winning bluegrass band Union Station and western-swing super group The Time Jumpers. The result is a collaborative and intimate EP that laces McCullough's voice with touches of dobro, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, and acoustic guitar, mixing the fresh energy of a rising star with the finesse of a hotshot backing band. The title track is about a midnight in Paris. The music video to accompany the song will have a romantic and cinematic feeling.
Stay tuned for the official release and follow Callie on social media at @CallieMcMusic and on her website https://www.calliemccullough.com/.

CMT Crossroads teams up a country musician with successful artists of other genres to duet on their hits, and often perform one another’s songs on notable Nashville stages from the Ryman to the Opry. In honor of the 70th CMT Crossroads episode premiering this month featuring Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey, here’s a throwback of the most legendary rockstar performances featuring the women of country.
Maren Morris & Alicia Keys
Both of these girls are truly on fire in this rendition of Keys, “Girl on Fire”. Soon to be momma, Maren Morris, recently performed at the Houston Rodeo nine months pregnant. She is truly superwomen! Alicia Keys, more commonly known as the “Queen of R&B” is a powerful lady as well. She has been listed by Time as one of the top 100 most influential people, twice.
Kacey Musgraves & Katy Perry
This duet was way before mainstream media had ever heard of the queen that is Kacey Musgraves. Both of these artists' unique sound blends flawlessly on Parton’s, “Here You Come Again.” Musgraves has been nominated for 9 Grammys and has won 6 throughout her career. Perry, who is currently an American Idol judge, has sold more than 18 million albums and 125 million singles globally.
Carrie Underwood & Steven Tyler
All American Girl, Carrie Underwood meets the Demon of Screamin’ in this epic pairing. There is truly nothing Carrie can’t sing or conquer. Check out our latest story on her most recent accomplishments here. She gives Steven Tyler of Aerosmith a run for his money singing a mashup of “Undo It” and “Walk This Way”.
Sara Evans & Maroon 5
Sara Evans has had many accomplishments outside of being a phenomenal woman of country music. She has competed on Dancing With The Stars, Family Feud, and even performed on CMT Crossroads three times. In her performance with Adam Levine, lead-singer of Maroon 5, the pair duet on hit songs, “She Will Be Loved”, “I Could Not Ask For More”, “I Won’t Go Home Without You” and many more.
Reba McEntire & Kelly Clarkson
Shortly after Reba and Kelly dueted on CMT Crossroads, they co-headlined the, “2 Worlds 2 Voices Tour” in 2008. Not only are the two women incredibly close friends, they were family! Reba is Kelly’s former mother-in-law. Despite Kelly’s divorce, Reba is a mentor and close confidant of Kelly’s. Kelly is a coach on the current season of The Voice and it is clear that her country roots run deep! She grew up in Texas, so who can blame her!
Dixie Chicks & James Taylor
The Dixie Chicks have ended their 14-year hiatus releasing their new single, “Gaslighter.” In 2002 at the peak of their career, they dueted with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame artist, James Taylor. It can be difficult for a solo artist to harmonize with a trio, but they nailed it singing, “Carolina in My Mind” and “Ready To Run.” I’m looking forward to many new duets hopefully with the Dixie Chicks reemergence onto the scene!
