JAKE OWEN: "Blue Jean" Intervenes
When Jake Owen met his new fiancee Lacey Buchanan at the video shoot for "Eight Second Ride," he wasn't sure they'd become a couple. But fate intervened when they re-connected before the shoot for "Barefoot Blue Jean Night."

TRISHA YEARWOOD: No Tortellini This Season
There'll be something conspicuously absent during the first season of Trisha Yearwood's cooking show, Trisha's Southern Kitchen -- hubby Garth Brooks. But Trisha says if it gets picked up for a second season, she'll invite him on. She tells Ladies Home Journal, "Garth has taught me a lot about experimenting with recipes. The first thing he'll always say to me is, 'Why not add tortellini to that?' That's our inside joke, because he adds tortellini to everything."
Trisha's Southern Kitchen premieres on the Food Network on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. [ET].
