How 'bout two! Country singer Eric Church and his wife Katherine Church are expecting their second child together, a rep for the performer confirms to Us Weekly.
The "Give Me Back My Hometown" singer, 37, hinted at his happy news this week during a stop on his ongoing Outsiders World Tour. Eric was performing his 2006 single "Sinners Like Me" in Louisville, Ky. on Thursday, Sept. 25, when he altered the lyrics to the song to reflect his growing family.
While the original lyrics read, "Well now maybe who knows one day I'll settle down / Give my dad a grandson of his own," CMT.com reports that Eric shouted out the second line, adding, "Give my dad another grandson!"
The expectant couple welcomed their first child, son Boone McCoy, in October 2011, after they tied the knot in January 2008.
"When you have a child, everything changes," Eric told Rolling Stone this past June. "I've changed a lot. I suppress a lot of maybe the way I used to be. Is that dark side still probably there? Yeah. I just don't let it come out very much. But if you mess with my kid, if you mess with my family, well, I can bring it out."
Millions of Americans were eager to trade in their old iPhones for the new iPhone 6 this week, but Dierks Bentley was doing the exact opposite, downgrading to a lower tech LG flip phone. He still carries his old iPhone, but he explained yesterday afternoon at a #1 party for “Drunk on a Plane,” that he was going to limit himself to only checking his iPhone five times a day. Otherwise, he would use the flip phone, which doesn’t tweet or Facebook or have any apps on it.
“It’s a little experiment. I’m just going to see how long it lasts,” Dierks said with a little hesitation. But he explained, “I feel like, driving around, and I’m guilty of it too, you just look around and everybody is always on their phone. This is like a McDonald’s Happy Meal with the #1 sauce. It’s like it has some addictive quality to it. It’s starting to drive me crazy, so I’m doing the opposite of everybody else. Everyone else is getting the iPhone 6 and I’m moving to the LG.”
Dierks felt bad for the guy at the cell phone store when he went to buy his new phone because the guy recognized him and was eager to help him, probably assuming he wanted to upgrade to the iPhone 6, but Dierks said to him, “I want the cheapest phone you have, like a flip phone or something.” The guy added the LG flip phone to Dierks’ phone plan for 99 cents.
Dierks just released the sultry “Say You Do” off his Riser album, which he hopes will follow the path of “Drunk on a Plane” and “I Hold On” to become his third consecutive #1 song off the album.

So now in China there are going to be designated sidewalks for people with cell phones..should we do that here?
Tired of bumping into people glued to their phones? One Chinese city thinks it has the answer: It has divided a sidewalk on one of its busiest streets into two lanes -- one for cellphone users and the other for those without.
The sidewalk is in the city of Chongqing in southwestern China. Fifty meters long and three meters wide, it has warning signs painted in white on the ground.
Long Cheng, a spokesperson for the developer that came up with the idea, said that the sidewalk lanes reminded tourists not to walk while playing with their cellphones.
"It's an unsafe gesture with potential safety hazards," she said.
The road, known as "yangrenjie" or foreigners street, is a popular tourist attraction in the city because of its faux Western architecture and an amusement park.
Long said the developers were inspired by a recent experiment in Washington DC and there were no plans yet to roll out the concept elsewhere in the city.
Not all pedestrians were sold on the idea, however.
"This kind of sidewalk is not a fundamental solution and could be an indulgence for mobile phone addicts in the long run, in my mind -- and this could even lead to more problems in the future," Xing Xing told the China Daily.
It is estimated that the number of smartphone users in China will exceed 500 million this year, the paper said.
