Only a few country stars publicly supported Chely Wright when she announced she was a lesbian in 2010. Others, like Faith Hill, chose to privately congratulate her, while a third group won’t talk to her. Wright spoke to the SiriusXM’s Michelangelo Signorile about how her decision was received by her friends in Nashville.
Country singer Nick Malloy was trapped inside his vehicle after he drove off the road and slammed into an embankment on Wednesday morning (March 28) near Macon, Ga. The frontman for the Nick Malloy Band is a friend of Dierks Bentley‘s and has an EP that has caught the attention of a number of major artists in Nashville.
A court order made public on Tuesday reveals that Marion Superior Court Judge Theodore Sosin is ordering both Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush to testify about the events leading up to last August’s stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair. Previously it was believed that only Nettles would have to give a deposition.
Country music fans under 40 are left scratching their heads about all the hype surrounding Lionel Richie‘s courting of Nashville’s greatest artists. First it was a duet with Shania Twain, now a full album of duets called ‘Tuskegee,’ and soon, the topper — a night in his honor after the ACM Awards next week.
Blake Shelton sent the most countrified member of his team home during Monday night’s episode of ‘The Voice.’ To be fair, the song Jordan Rager was asked to sing was way out of his comfort zone, but a perfect fit for his Battle Rounds contender Naia Kete. Rager’s growth during the rehearsals was commendable, but ultimately not enough.
Miranda Lambert‘s new hit ‘Over You’ has battled songs from Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts and Jason Aldean in a run toward Taste of Country Showdown immortality. It’s a superstar lineup that only a brilliant hit like hers could navigate. By beating Aldean’s ‘Fly Over States’ in last week’s Showdown, ‘Over You’ is just one win away from enshrinement in the Hall of Fame.
Miranda Lambert‘s bed is one dog lighter. The singer tweeted last night that she’s sleeping with only three of her four furry friends lately. “And no Blake isn’t one of em,” she said. The other pup, a mix named Virginia, went missing last week.
All three ‘American Idol‘ judges agreed that 18-year-old Skylar Laine got off to a rough start singing ‘Shameless’ by Billy Joel (later recorded and made popular by Garth Brooks). By the time the Mississippi-born singer reached the stage and the chorus however, it was as good as anybody’s performance on Wednesday night.
One more win and they’re in. The Eli Young Band are knocking on the door of the Texas Red Dirt Rumble Hall of Fame. Their new song ‘Even if it Breaks Your Heart’ topped Josh Abbott Band‘s ‘Touch’ last week. If the foursome’s hit can win again, it’d make four in a row. That’s good enough for Hall of Fame entry.
Casey James’ personality shines through during each song on his self-titled debut project, and not just because the lyrics are mostly ripped from his pre and post-’American Idol’ life. It’s his laid-back demeanor that fans find so charming. In just a few minutes, one feels like the guitar slinger from Texas has figured out how to keep pace with the world. Never too slow. Never too fast. Always on the beat.
George Strait has opened up about life as a grandfather — and about the new little boy’s name. In an interview with Country Countdown USA‘s Lon Helton, Strait confirmed rumors that the family name would be carried on for decades to come.
