“It’s official,” Reba McEntiretweeted last week, sharing, “my episode of @nbcwdytya will premiere on Mar. 2!” She was referring to the third season of NBC’s ancestry searching show ‘Who Do You Think You Are?,’ which will unmask McEntire’s family past. Each season, the show follows celebrities as they dig into their histories, their ancestry and the stories of the people who made their lives possible to begin with.
With February sweeps about to begin, Ellen DeGeneres is reportedly upping the ante for her daytime talk show, enticing her television audience with appearances from some of the biggest stars — from Christina Aguilera to First Lady Michelle Obama. One joint interview we’re especially excited about is her upcoming chat with Taylor Swift and Zac Efron, who will be talking about their Dr. Seuss film ‘The Lorax,’ which hits theaters on March 2.
In her recent cover story in Vogue, Taylor Swift was portrayed with class and a sharp intellect. In an interview where she was zipping around from one designer to another, chatting excitedly and raving about each new collection, Swift also opened up about the iconic figures who have resonated deeply with her during her life and career.
Carrie Underwood may get to flit around onstage in shimmering gowns and attend swanky awards shows, but this Oklahoma girl who found her start on ‘American Idol‘ is certainly not one to forget her roots.

After more than 90 shows in Europe and South America performing as the lead singer of Journey, Filipino rocker Arnel Pineda recently told ABS-CBN morning show Kris TV that the American rock band is about to take a step toward a country collaboration.

Rascal Flatts‘ Jay DeMarcus is slated to make his film debut next year along with Trace Adkins in the holiday film ‘Saving Santa.’ With Kix Brooks sitting in the executive director chair, it’s no surprise that this upcoming release has so many country ties.

Country megastar Tim McGraw says he plans to release a Christmas song next week and another single at the beginning of 2012. In a recent statement, McGraw said the holiday single, ‘Christmas All Over the World,’ will hit radio airwaves next week. This is especially noteworthy as it closely follows the court decision allowing the artist to pursue record labels other than Curb, with whom he has been recording for more than 20 years.
In the early fall of 2010, Tim McGraw submitted his final version of a new record called ‘Emotional Traffic’ to Curb Records. The first single, ‘Felt Good on My Lips,’ dropped soon after, but no word came out about an album release date. Then, just hours after a court ruled this week (Nov. 30) that McGraw was free to sign with another label, Curb let the second single, ‘Better Than I Used to Be,’ hit the airwaves almost a year after the first single was released — and now they’ve announced a release date for the full album.
Oklahoma native Vince Gill recently made a $12,000 donation to the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame to help finish construction on a new children’s music exhibit.
