Here's what Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Frankie Ballard and Jerrod Niemann think of Valentine's Day
Dierks: "Here's my stance on Valentine's Day. Women are going to hate this out there. We're married. It's over. The cards, the Hallmark stuff--it's done. I love you. Every day is Valentine's day. Once we got married we kind of tackled that one. Valentine's day is really hard on guys."
Luke: "Typically I'm never home on Valentine's so we always try to have something fun. We'll go have a dinner or something like that. I'll light some scented candles on the bus. It will be so romantic."
Jerrod: "I think more than being romantic in the I want to be a tall dark stranger, more than just trying to make the person feel good."
Frankie: "I think when a guy just stops and thinks, okay what is she going to really like. Cater whatever it is--a dinner, a meal or anything specifically to her. I think that is what women think is romantic."

Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line and his bride of two-months, Brittney, are enjoying wedded bliss. Brian met Brittney more than three years ago and thought she was the most beautiful, creative, independent woman he'd ever met, but they both were involved with other people.
"I always wanted a chance and I thought if we ever get single, that would be cool. And it happened. And immediately hanging out in that different kind of vibe where we're both single and in different places in our lives, magic kinda happens."
Carrie Underwood tells People magazine that she and her husband Mike Fisher splurged on a sports car. "We got one of the new Corvettes. It’s fun and black. We didn’t get a convertible because Mike likes to take it to the [race] track.”
She adds that with their busy schedules, moments of pure romance are few and far between. “We had a good week and a half of true bliss last July on vacation. We traveled through Italy with friends and family, and had great food, wine and hikes.”
Taylor Swift just wrapped up sold-out dates on her Red Tour in London and Berlin this week. Due to popular demand, she's setting her sights on Southeast Asia with five dates in June; Jakarta, Indonesia, Manila, the Philippines, Bangkok, Thailand, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Singapore
JUSTIN MOORE freely admits he's not romantic. That's fine, not everyone is. But his excuse for WHY he lacks in the romance department is so lame that none of us could EVER get away with saying it to our special lady. He says, quote, "It's not that I don't want to be or I don't try to be romantic. It's just not my forté."
It's not unusual for country performers to end up marrying their music video costars. Brad Paisley cast "Father of the Bride's"Kimberly Williams in his "I'm Gonna Miss Her" video.

Love stories from HELL
There's a man in Shanghai who got DUMPED by his girlfriend last year . . . so now he's trying to ruin Valentine's Day for OTHER people, too. He bought every other seat at a movie theater that's showing a popular romantic movie called "Beijing Love Story". The theater has assigned seating, and since he bought every other seat, couples can't sit together.
32% of moms say they haven't had sex in YEARS. Another 36% say they haven't had sex in several months.
There's a new product for sale called the Make-Out Practice Pillow, and it's just what it sounds like . . . but somehow creepier looking than you could imagine. It's a pillow with a realistic rubber nose and mouth poking out. The pillows were created by 26-year-old Emily King of St. Petersburg, Florida. The mouths on the pillows are like the ones you'd find on CPR dummies.
Emily is selling them on Etsy for $30, plus $10 shipping and handling. We assume she has a very limited quantity, so if you want one, get in on it quick.
There's a 26-year-old in London named Torz Reynolds, who recently got dumped by her 24-year-old boyfriend Stuart . . . supposedly because he was moving to Alaska for his dream job. So she dropped him off at the airport and said a tearful goodbye.
But a week later, she found out it was all an elaborate RUSE, and he WASN'T moving to Alaska . . . he was moving in with another WOMAN.
Also . . . Torz has about 16 facial piercings, and Stuart goes by the nickname "Chopper." That'll help explain what happened next . . .
About a year ago, Torz got a tattoo on her forearm that said, "Chopper's [B-Word]." And to get even with him for cheating . . . she spent an hour-and-a-half CUTTING IT OFF HER OWN ARM.
But believe it or not, that's NOT the craziest part. Because after she sliced off about a one-inch-by-three-inch patch of her own skin, she filled a glass jar with plastic vampire teeth . . . wrapped the patch of skin AROUND it . . . and MAILED IT to him.
Torz says doing it gave her CLOSURE, and she only regrets not being there to see his face when he opened it.
