Billy Dean Promotes Local Farming with New Album, ‘The Seed’

It’s been awhile since Billy Dean released some new music — and even longer since he tasted the kind of chart success he enjoyed with his first few albums in the early ’90s — but he’s making plans to change all that.

Dean has partnered with the Naturipe Farms collective for a series of new recordings, starting with a digital EP that’s currently available on iTunes). He also has plans for a full album in the fall.

The Band Perry Gets Song Advice from Tim McGraw

It’s an old music business saying that you get your whole life to write the songs for your debut album, and then you get six months to put together the follow-up. But if you have to write on the clock, you might as well have an expert set of ears listening to the results, right?

The Band Perry has had an opportunity to do just that — while writing and rehearsing new material on the road with Tim McGraw, the sibling trio was happy to discover their megaplatinum headliner listening in.

Fire Claims Nashville Legend Jack Clement’s Home and Studio

More than four decades of history went up in smoke on Saturday, when country music legend Cowboy Jack Clement lost his Nashville home in a blaze that also claimed his well-trafficked studio.

The 80-year-old Clement and his girlfriend escaped unharmed, along with their three cats and Clement’s guitar collection — including his prize possession, a 1951 Gibson J200 that was once scratched by Elvis Presley’s belt buckle. “I got my baby,” said Clement. “That guitar means more to me than the house.”

Martina McBride’s Fans Forced To Wait — New Album Delayed Until October

It’s been over two years since Martina McBride has delivered a full-length album of new material — and the wait just got a little longer for her fans.

McBride’s upcoming release, which will be her eleventh studio set, was scheduled for August, but Universal Republic has pushed it back a few weeks — to October 18, to be exact. She addressed the change in a recent blog post, calling it “a decision the record company made in order to give us the best opportunity for a great first week in sales, which so many people pay attention to in the industry.”

Watch! Miranda Lambert Gives Blake Shelton a Birthday Surprise [VIDEO]

Nobody really wants to work on their birthday, but if you’re going to do it, you might as well do it on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans — and with your new wife leading everyone in a birthday sing-along in your honor.

That’s just what happened to Blake Shelton last Saturday, when he celebrated his 35th birthday by opening for Brad Paisley — and was surprised during his set by the appearance of Mrs. Shelton, a.k.a. country star Miranda Lambert, who took the stage for a rendition of Joan Jett’s ‘I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll’ before asking the crowd “to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to my husband.”

Justin Bieber Proclaims Love for Country Music

There’s no escaping Justin Bieber these days – not on the radio, not at a theater near you, not at the NBA All-Star Game and not at the CMT Music Awards, where the 17-year-old recently picked up an award for Collaborative Video of the Year.

Though some country fans might have been taken aback to see Bieber sharing a screen with Rascal Flatts in the video for “That Should Be Me,” he came by his affection for the genre the good old-fashioned way: from his mother.

“It’s great,” Bieber said after the show. “It’s so many people my mother admires, ’cause she loves country music, and I do too. So it’s really great to be here with Rascal Flatts.”
