Earlier this week, Eric Church and his band set out to film a video for Church’s ‘Springsteen,’ the third single from his Grammy-nominated record, ‘Chief.’ The country hitmaker officially released the single at the beginning of this year, and now he’s working on the music video to accompany it. But for the filming, he didn’t block off Broadway in Nashville or rent out the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. In fact, according to CMTT, Church was spotted shooting the video in a neighborhood setting in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Taylor Swift is finishing out her Speak Now World Tour in Australia and New Zealand, and she just played two nights at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre (March 6 and 7) to an ecstatic crowd. There, Swift broke out her ‘Hunger Games’ hit ‘Safe and Sound’ for the first time ever as a solo performance. Though the pop-country songstress officially debuted the song at the Ryman with vintage Americana duo the Civil Wars back in January, this was the first time she stood alone without the accompaniment of her co-writers.
The Country Music Association just announced a few additions to the lineup for the 2012 CMA Music Festival. The most recently added talents slated to take the big stage at the Tennessee Titans’ LP Field include Blake Shelton, Scotty McCreery, Dierks Bentley, Alan Jackson and Brantley Gilbert. This year’s biggest night in country music will be taking over Nashville from June 7 through June 10.
To celebrate what would have been Johnny Cash’s 80th birthday (Feb. 26), a host of country stars are banding together to bring a great tribute show to the legendary Austin City Limits TV show. The artists will be performing live at Austin’s Moody Theatre with a special tribute show titled ‘We Walk The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash.’ Organizers of the show just announced today that the two newest additions to the already impressive April 20 lineup are Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow.
It’s going to be a long time before any of us truly forgets that awkwardly painful moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards between Taylor Swift and Kanye West. After Swift won the award for Best Female Video, the rapper charged the stage in the middle of her acceptance speech, hijacked the mic and made a rant in favor of Beyoncé. Whether you’re a Swift fan or not, that was a moment of discomfort for everyone involved. Even so, a recent move by the country starlet seems to suggest that she’s willing to forgive and (at least try to) forget.
Each week on the remaining episodes of ‘American Idol‘ Season 11, one unfortunate hopeful will have to leave the stage for good. Rather than making that moment more awkward with silence or a peppy pop song spinning in the background, ‘Idol’ commissioned last season’s winner Scotty McCreery to record the farewell song to make it a memorable moment. McCreery chose to do a cover of Tim McGraw‘s 1999 hit, ‘Please Remember Me.’
Though Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have become quite the ‘it couple’ in and beyond the realm of country music, the two agree that they’re not planning for kids anytime soon. In a recent interview with US Weekly, Shelton explained that while they will be ringing in their first anniversary in May, they’re content to put off that next step for just a little while longer.
More than 20 years ago, in March of 1991, Reba McEntire experienced a tragedy that will stay with her for the rest of her life. On Sunday night (March 4), the country star opened up on the OWN show ‘Oprah’s Master Class’ about the tragic plane crash that took the lives of seven of her band members, as well as her tour manager and two pilots.
Country artist Matt Stillwell experienced a taste of last week’s devastating tornadoes, though thankfully, he was nowhere in the area. Stillwell, a Nashville-based artist who is signed to Average Joe’s Entertainment, lost his tour bus in the devastating March 2 storms, which ripped through much of east Kentucky on Friday.
Perhaps it was Taylor Swift‘s recent ‘Vogue’ cover that inspired the editors of the Australian edition of Harper’s Bazaar to put the glamorous ‘it girl’ on the front of their April issue. Whatever the inspiration, Swift can be seen on the cover in a black and gold shimmering Gucci dress — priced at $10,000 — that nods to the ’80s with its bold, almost geometric pattern, but is more reminiscent of a swanky flapper dress from the ’20s.
Miranda Lambert confirmed that she’s working on a television series that’s loosely based on her childhood in Texas. In a recent interview with Dan Van from Albright & O’Malley, the country gal talked more about the the show, which is rumored to be about a boy and a girl — likely inspired by Lambert and her brother — who help their private investigator parents solve crimes.
Dolly Parton is the muse in a new documentary that’s set to debut at the 2012 Nashville Film Festival, which runs the week of April 19-26. Though the appropriately titled ‘Hollywood to Dollywood’ might sound like a documentary about the Queen of Country Music herself, it actually chronicles the adventures of two identical twin brothers, Gary and Larry Lane, who are hoping to get Parton to star in their screenplay ‘Full Circle.’
