Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to take on his first ever regular role on a TV series, with a spy show he’s developing over at Netflix.

Despite his 50-year career on the big screen and a handful of TV cameos — not to mention his brief stint as Donald Trump’s The Apprentice replacement — Schwarzenegger has never had a major recurring role on a series until now.

Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard Unfollows Bandmate Brian Kelley

Cruising on two different paths? Florida Georgia Line bandmates Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley sparked rumors that they recently had a falling out.

Fans speculated that something seemed to have gone awry between the country stars after Hubbard, 33, and his wife, Hayley Hubbard, unfollowed Kelley, 35, on Instagram.

“Does that mean FGL will be no more?” one Twitter user wondered, while another called the unfollowing “really weird” considering the duo just released a Christmas song, “Lit This Year,” on October 29.

Several fans theorized that Tyler and Kelley’s differing political views may have driven them apart in the wake of this year’s polarizing election, which saw Joe Biden defeat Donald Trump to become the 46th president of the United States.

Tyler has spoken out against President Trump, 74, in the past, while Hayley, 34, showed support for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris

Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard Tests Positive for Coronavirus, Cancels CMA Awards Performance

“Asymptomatic. Quarantining on bus. Miss my family. Writing songs. Thankful,” he continued. See the post here.

FGL was slated to perform at the CMA Awards this week but will no longer be doing so, making the group the second act to pull out of the show following a coronavirus diagnosis. Lee Brice also tested positive, and was scheduled to perform with Carly Pearce.

Florida Georgia Line is also nominated for vocal duo of the year.

The CMA issued a statement, below, Monday saying that its policy of testing artists before they come to rehearsals is working.

“As you may have heard, unfortunately Lee Brice and Tyler Hubbard both tested positive for COVID-19 and are unable to join us for the CMA Awards on Wednesday night,” reads the statement. “Although this is incredibly disappointing, not only for the show but also for CMA personally as we care deeply for these artists

How Detroit Assembly Lines Changed Music Forever

From Road & Track

All music is a product of time and place. Often, this happens in subtle ways—composers and songwriters absorb the sounds, moods, and cultures of their environment, sometimes without even realizing it. Other times, the influence is a bit more explicit.

Berry Gordy Jr. began working at a Lincoln-Mercury plant in 1955. Gordy was an aspiring songwriter at the time, but with a young family to support, he did what so many musicians have to do, and took a day job. “Those slow-moving car frames were the loveliest sight I’d ever seen,” he wrote in his autobiography To Be Loved. “There was a pleasing simplicity to how everyone did the same thing over and over again.”

The work paid reasonably well—$86.40 a week—and by Gordy’s account, was fairly easy. “I learned it

Chicago Sports Radio Phone Lines an Absolute Delight After Bears’ Debacle

The Chicago Bears were supposed to play a football game Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. Matt Nagy’s team managed to show up but were more passive bystanders as the opposing team essentially did whatever it wanted in all three phases for 60 minutes. With Nick Foles looking less like the ultimate answer and more like a pressing question himself, locals have turned to a time-tested coping mechanism: calling into sports radio to vent, to criticize, to lay their anger bare.

Leading to images like these that, while they should inspire some level of empathy, for some reason inspire only maniacal laughter.

Lines form on the first day of early voting in Florida

A soggy South Florida day didn’t dampen voter enthusiasm Monday as people arrived at voting centers before dawn — in some cases lining up around the block — to take advantage of the start of early voting in Florida.

From Miami to St. Petersburg, people began posting pictures on social media of lines growing around early voting centers even before polls opened at 7 a.m. In stormy South Florida, voters supporting either President Donald Trump or Democratic nominee Joe Biden stood in line wearing ponchos — and masks — and holding umbrellas.

More than 2.5 million Floridians have already voted by mail. But with Trump casting aspersions about the legitimacy of mail voting, Monday morning offered the first opportunity to vote in person for those voters who don’t want to cast a mail ballot.

“I wanted to make sure that it’s legit and that it counts,” said Yensys Martinez, who
