Last year BRETT ELDREDGE came through on a promise to go skydiving after his song "Don't Ya" hit Number One. This time around the song is "Beat of the Music" and the bet is swimming with sharks.

Keith Urban is opening up about his opening acts on the upcoming Raise ‘Em Up tour -- Jerrod Niemann and Brett Eldredge. Keith Urban says he was six songs in Jerrod Niemann’s High Noon before finalizing him as an opener.
BLAKE SHELTON does a bunch of domestic stuff like you see in the video to his song "Doin' What She Likes". But not all of it. "I love to cook. I don't clean the house so that part of the video is a bit far-fetched. Making drinks, I've got that covered. She relies on me to do the grilling and I like that." He's even started an accidental fire or two, but not as serious as burning down the house. "I've burned the trash a few times. I've caught the yard on fire. I've burnt some acreage and had to call the fire department a couple of times….I like bubble baths."
TAYLOR SWIFT promised a fan that she'd show up to her bridal shower on Sunday . . . and then DID! She even came bearing gifts.

Five Biometric Replacements for Your Password
Companies have been looking at biometrics to verify your identity instead . . . like the iPhone fingerprint feature.
1. Your heartbeat. Everyone's is unique. And a company is developing a wristband that can recognize yours to verify your identity on any WiFi device. So your computer would only turn on for you, and your front door would unlock as you walked up.
2. The shape of your ear. A smartphone touchscreen could scan your ear and recognize you, just like a fingerprint sensor. But unlike fingerprints that can fade over time or change because of injuries, your ears don't change too much as you get old.
3. Your gait. The way you walk is unique too. A computer can analyze your speed, balance, and rhythm to figure out who you are. And a mobile device is always on you, so you don't have to stop and verify your identity before you use it.
4. Your typing style. There are ways to identify people by analyzing their typing style. So a computer could require you to type a certain phrase before it unlocks. That's a lot like a password, but at least you don't have to remember anything.
5. Your face. Samsung's new Galaxy already has facial recognition software. It's not very good yet, but someday you might be able to unlock your phone just by holding it up in front of you.
