Martina McBride is riding high at No. 1 on the Music Row’s Country Breakout Singles chart this week with her power-ballad anthem about dealing with breast cancer, ‘I’m Gonna Love You Through It.’ The song made its impact to country radio late last summer and took 31 weeks to top the industry chart.
The Band Perry are back in the studio working on their sophomore project, following the amazing success of their debut self-titled album, which spawned three Top 5 singles — two of which went all the way to No. 1. The new tunes on the way are still a work in progress, but the sibling trio was apparently anxious to get a fresh song on the charts after ‘All Your Life.’ Just this week, the Perrys revealed yet another single, ‘Postcard From Paris,’ from their debut album.
Jerrod Niemann is sporting some new ink on his left forearm these days in honor of his own musical hero. But it’s not the usual tributes to guys like Waylon Jennings or Merle Haggard that Niemann is giving a shout-out to — it’s honky-tonk legend Lefty Frizzell.
Thompson Square‘s Keifer and Shawna Thompson are the latest country stars to use their celebrity status to do good for those in need.

Kenny Chesney returns to the top of the country singles charts this week with his latest hit, ‘Reality.’ The tune marks Chesney’s 23rd career chart-topper and the fourth from his current album, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey.’ Previous No. 1 hits from that album include ‘The Boys of Fall,’ ‘Somewhere With You’ and ‘Live a Little.’
After a successful surgery for his battle with stage IV colon cancer in December, Wade Hayes is finally on the right side of recovery. The ‘Old Enough to Know Better’ and ‘I’m Still Dancin’ With You’ hitmaker has spent two months getting chemotherapy treatment and is now seeing the results his friends, family and fans have been praying for since news of his illness broke late last year.
When Keith Urban says thank you to his team for their never-ending rallying and support of his career, he goes all out, every time. So it was only natural when his latest single ‘You Gonna Fly’ topped the charts for not one but two weeks, that he decided to send the entire marching band from Father Ryan High School in Nashville over to his record label, Capitol Records, to perform the song in celebration (check out the video below).
Tuesday afternoon (Feb. 28), Nashville’s BMI lobby was packed with the friends, family, industry peers and fellow co-writers of Eric Church, as they all had the same goal in mind: to pour a cold cocktail and celebrate one of country music’s hottest stars for his first ever No. 1 single, ‘Drink in My Hand.’
On Monday (Feb. 17), Gary Allan held a special press conference from his Nashville clothing store the Label, where he discussed the exciting year ahead — including his headlining spot on the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour.
