Brooks & Dunn Reunite for Las Vegas Residency with Reba Starting June 24 at Caesars Palace

Image Courtesy Caesars Palace/Russ HarringtonBrooks & Dunn is back together for a run of shows at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas with their old friend and tour partner, Reba.

Reba and Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas will launch June 24, 2015 at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Tickets for select shows go on sale Thursday at TheColosseum.com or AXS.com. Go to RebainVegas.com for more information. Brooks & Dunn has not performed together since wrapping up their farewell tour in 2010.

The idea to revive their co-headlining show came up at dinner in Nashville. Reba, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn still hang out regularly despite rumors that Kix and Ronnie don't get along. Kix shot that talk down at a press conference at Caesars Palace Wednesday.

"We've been having dinners and going on vacation together, which is pretty amazing, you know, considering as much as Ronnie and I hate each other and don't get along," Kix said with a laugh. Reuniting with Reba seems like a natural way for Brooks & Dunn to come back together, too.

Says Kix, "We love hanging out and we love playing music. Let's do it somewhere besides the campfire where some folks will show up and hear us again. So, we're really looking forward to it."

Here are the confirmed 2015 dates for Reba and Brooks & Dunn: Together in Vegas: 6/24, 6/26, 6/27, 7/1, 7/3, 7/4, 12/2, 12/4, 12/6, 12/9, 12/11, and 12/12.

Carrie Underwood Launching Women’s Fitness Lifestyle Clothing Line, CALIA, in March 2015

Image Courtesy Dick's Sporting GoodsCarrie Underwood has partnered with Dick's Sporting Goods to launch the CALIA by Carrie Underwood fitness lifestyle clothing line in March 2015. The idea grew from Carrie's own need for clothes that work in the gym and also look great while running errands or grabbing lunch with a friend.

Carrie is proud to offer this new line of clothing allowing women to look great while pursuing an active lifestyle.  "I think we've really bridged the gap, and we have things that are just really well-made and great pieces that women will feel good about wearing," she says.  "I paid special attention to what women want and what they need."

Carrie has been very impressed with the designers at Dick's Sporting Goods, too.  "We've basically just had this big team, team of people -- mainly ladies, very strong, awesome women -- working on this fitness/lifestyle brand," she says. "It's something that I think people are gonna be really excited about. I know I'm excited about it."

The clothing line will be available in stores at Dick's Sporting Goods and online at CaliaStudio.com.
