Emerson Drive

The members of Emerson Drive are shocked and grieving. While en route to a show in Nebraska, the band learned early Wednesday morning that their friend and former band member, Patrick Bourque, died suddenly Tuesday night at his home in Canada. No official details have been made available as to the circumstances surrounding his death. Patrick was the band's bass player until he resigned in August. He had been living and working in Canada since leaving the group.

Gary Allan loves being on the road, and says he gets restless being at home for too long. Gary admits, however, that living on a tour bus isn't easy, and reveals how he makes it work for him:

"The key to road life is to try to keep it as much a routine as you can because it is so chaotic. My typical [day]... I get up in the morning. I have a bowl of cereal. Me and my whole band go to the gym together. We get a good work out, come back and take a shower and go back and do a show. It's all very typical. Yeah, we rage that night and we usually party in that town 'til like four in the morning, then we all go to sleep and do it all over again someplace else."

Gary will have plenty of time on the road to look forward to very soon. He joins Keith Urban on his "Love, Pain and the whole crazy tour," beginning November 1 in Columbus, Ohio.

Sugarland is ready to take the stage as a headlining act. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush say in an online blog that they can't wait for fans to see the show they are putting together. They share, "Every day, a new piece gets finalized and fits into the dream like into a giant puzzle. The lights, the video, the songs, the T-shirt, the poster, the programs.. We were simultaneously creating our headlining show while wrapping up the opening slot with Kenny Chesney. And no surprise, we were learning all we could from the reigning Entertainer of the Year."

"CMT On Tour," featuring Sugarland, with special guests Little Big Town and Jake Owen, kicks off on September 27 in North Charleston, South Carolina.
