Taylor Swift Inspires a Real-Life Wedding Proposal

Taylor Swift knows a thing or two about how to tell a ‘Love Story’ through song — and a few days ago, she helped play a role in a real-life marriage proposal.

When Taylor’s tour stopped in Detroit last February, she met up with WYCD DJ Jason ‘The 300 Pound Cowboy’ and his girlfriend, Kelli, and hit it off with the couple. As the night drew to a close, Taylor’s mother warned them, “Next time I see you two, you’d better be engaged!”

‘I Love Country Music’ Singer Jack Barlow Dead at 87

Jack Barlow, the voice behind ‘I Love Country Music’ and other hits, passed away on Friday after a lengthy struggle with an undisclosed illness. He was 87.

A World War Two veteran, Barlow was a relative late bloomer in the music business. He was 40 when he finally moved to Nashville, where his distinctive baritone quickly scored him a record deal and a string of ’60s hits that included his signature number, ‘I Love Country Music,’ as well as ‘Catch the Wind’ and ‘Birmingham Blues.’

’80s Teen Star Tiffany Goes Country with ‘Rose Tattoo’ [VIDEO]

She may have earned her first taste of fame with mall tours and synth-pop hits like ‘Could’ve Been,’ ‘All This Time,’ and her cover of ‘I Think We’re Alone Now,’ but Tiffany says she’s always been a country music fan at heart — and now, almost 25 years after releasing her debut album, she’s coming home.

It’s been a long road for Tiffany, who has weathered plummeting sales, lawsuits, divorce, and the shadow of her teenybopper past over the last couple of decades. But for the singer who was only 10 when she made her professional debut by singing a duet with country artist Jack Reeves — and who later got her first big break from none other than Hoyt Axton — the road always led back to Nashville.

How Will the Debt Crisis Affect Trace Adkins’ New Album?

Selling an album is hard enough in today’s tough musical climate without having to worry about current events overshadowing your music — but that’s just the position Trace Adkins is finding himself in with his upcoming release, ‘Proud to Be Here.’

They’re tourmates and ‘American Idol’ alums — but are Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina also something more? It’s a question they’ve been asked repeatedly lately, and one they’ve done a great job of refusing to answer.

McCreery and Alaina continued their obfuscation during a recent appearance at the Google campus, dodging yet another volley from the ‘are they or aren’t they?’ camp when the subject came up as part of a series of questions about their feelings on Google’s new social network, Google+.

Dolly Parton Says Fan Once Left a Baby on Her Doorstep

A great song is capable of moving the listener on a pretty intimate emotional level, so it’s only natural that fans often try to find ways of showing their appreciation for an artist’s music — even if the artist is successful enough that gifts are clearly unnecessary.

On the other hand, sometimes fans’ tokens of gratitude are just plain bizarre, and when Dolly Parton was asked about the most unusual thing she’d ever been given, she had a real whopper of a story to tell.
