Keith Urban‘s fans may have been disappointed when the ‘For You’ singer had to postpone his annual All for the Hall benefit concert due to vocal cord surgery. Though the concert was originally set to take place mid-January, Urban’s vocal rest caused him to reschedule the annual Country Music Hall of Fame fundraiser for tonight, April 10. And while fans had to wait three months for the event, Urban went out of his way this morning to make it well worth their while.
Alan Jackson is preparing to release his first record on his own label, Alan Country Records, alongside EMI Records. And while it may be his first album on his own label, ‘Thirty Miles West’ is actually the star’s 17th studio release. ‘Thirty Miles West,’ out this summer, seems to be a personal album to Jackson
To say that Jake Owen had quite the week last week would be a vast understatement. The country singer with Floridian roots saw his single ‘Alone With You‘ climb to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Songs chart, where it’s still sitting pretty above the rest. Whether it was because Owen was already on top of the world or because he felt especially emotional playing for his hometown Vero Beach, Fla. crowd, Owen went ahead and popped the question to girlfriend Lacey Buchanan on Saturday night (April 7).
At a recent stop on her On Fire Tour, Miranda Lambert opened up about her career goals for the future, but also how she got her start — her beginnings as a singer, especially what it was like to hear legendary country singer Loretta Lynn give her some pretty hefty praise.
Trace Adkins has forged a new partnership, but it’s not with a label or another country artist or agency — it’s with his meat. Adkins has joined forces with the Louisiana-based company Hightower Enterprises to bring his celebrity name to Hightower’s Country Smoked Sausage. In a commercial for the product, Adkins is grilling out in the backyard, explaining why he chose to align himself with the company that’s been making his favorite sausage since 1972.
Blake Shelton may have done some pretty significant Taylor Swiftteasing from the stage of the ACM Awards last Sunday (April 1), but the comedic star says that, even though the blonde starlet beat him out for Entertainer of the Year, he knows her prize was well deserved given all that she’s done in the past year.
Kelly Clarkson is well into her 2012 Stronger Tour, and last night (April 3) she took the stage at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater with several of her musical celebrity friends. Those joining the ‘Idol’ star onstage included country greats Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton.
If there’s one country gal who’s not going to stand quietly while someone makes fun of her or her people, it’s Miranda Lambert. The sassy sweetheart didn’t seem to think Ashton Kutcher’s little “performance,” nor his over-the-top country getup at Sunday night’s ACM Awards was too cute.
Nashville’s Belmont University can boast quite a number of now-famous alums in the country music world, including Brad Paisley, Josh Turner, LeAnn Womack, Trisha Yearwood, Julie Roberts and Sarah Buxton for starters. And since the university is the place where so many of these artists got a start in music, they don’t often forget to go back and thank their alma mater when that music career finally pays off.
Anyone who knows anything about Reba McEntire understands one thing about the seemingly ubiquitous superstar: her schedule is jam packed. But McEntire’s biggest fans also know that the multi-dimensional talent always puts her family first. This weekend, McEntire will be making that loud and clear as she heads out to host the 47th annual ACM Awards with Blake Shelton. While everyone else is already in Las Vegas scrambling around in preparation for the show, McEntire will be in Birmingham, Ala. cheering on her son, Shelby Blackstock, as he races at Barber Motorsports Park.
Miranda Lambert and Chris Young sat down at the table with the ladies of CBS’ ‘The Talk’ on Thursday morning, and Lambert decided to offer up a little nugget of trivia about the 26-year-old country crooner joining her on the show. “I have a secret that I know,” she began, pausing. “About him — but you’re not going to expect what I’m about to say.”
If anyone understands what it’s like to be under the intense heat of the ‘American Idol‘ spotlights and the critical eye of the show’s judges, it’s Carrie Underwood. The Season 4 ‘Idol’ winner apparently hasn’t forgotten the pressure that comes from taking that stage under the scrutiny of fans and judges alike, and she took the time to reach out to 18-year-old British-born Hollie Cavanagh, the tiny talent with a huge voice who’s currently vying to be the next American Idol.
