Rodney Atkins is nothing if not deliberate — from the time he signed with Curb Records in 1997 to the release of his first album, ‘Honesty,’ in 2003, he spent six years making sure everything was just right with the music.
It’s an approach that’s paid off: his latest single, ‘Take a Back Road,’ is the fastest-rising of his career. And it’s also the title track of his next album, due October 4.
Congratulations are in order for Luke Bryan. The ‘Country Girl (Shake It for Me)’ singer’s new album, ‘Tailgates and Tanlines,’ is not only the top-selling country album, it’s number two on Billboard’s overall top 200 albums chart.
‘Tailgates’ is Bryan’s first chart-topping album, outpacing 2009′s ‘Doin’ My Thing,’ which peaked at number two on the country charts and number six on the top 200. With first-week sales of more than 145,000 units, it’s the second highest-selling debut for a country artist this year, behind only Brad Paisley‘s ‘This Is Country Music.’
He might be known for breezy, devil-may-care songs like ‘No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem’ and ‘Summertime,’ but when it comes to business, Kenny Chesney takes things very seriously. In fact, as the New York Times discovered during a recent profile, he’s an extremely involved, hands-on boss.
After experiencing the terror, confusion, and sadness of last Saturday night’s stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair, the members of Sugarland are understandably shaken up. And while their tour continues, the band’s thoughts and prayers remain with the victims and their families.
In a heartfelt open letter posted on their website, Sugarland addressed the incident, trying to put their feelings into words and explaining their plans to honor those who died while continuing to sort out the events that led to the collapse.
Jeff Bridges has been singing, playing guitar, and writing songs for years — in fact, in the ’90s, he even went so far as to release an album, ‘Be Here Soon,’ on his own label, Ramp Records. But it wasn’t until he starred in 2009′s ‘Crazy Heart’ that Bridges really had a chance to explore his musical artistry on the big screen.
Billy Currington is having a moment right now — he’s scored seven consecutive number one singles, and his latest hit, ‘Love Done Gone,’ is well on its way to making it eight. Clearly, people can’t get enough of hearing him on the radio.
