The countdown to the 2012 CMT Music Awards is on! This Wednesday night (June 6), country music fanatics will get to see country’s top performers take the stage at the awards show. Plus, fans will also catch a glimpse of their favorite artists presenting awards to this year’s winners.
If you’ve been following Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher’s plans to have children, you know that in a recent interview with Oprah the happy couple had differing opinions on when to start their family. But that seems like a minor glitch compared to the bomb Fisher dropped later: He wants seven children. Is Underwood up for mothering that many kids?
There’s nothing like seeing one of your favorite artists sit down with an acoustic guitar and take part in an unplugged country music jam. Thanks to the resurrection of CMT’s ‘CMT: Unplugged‘ series, country music fans will soon have the chance to see more talented artists play unplugged sets. When Dierks Bentley took his turn this time around, he put on an unforgettable rendition of Adele‘s ‘Set Fire to the Rain.’
Some of Toby Keith‘s ‘bad A’ patriotic songs can make him sound like a tough guy, but the truth is that the country star is always willing to donate time and money to help sick children and other people in need. For his latest act of generosity, the 9th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic helped raise $664,000 for OK Kids Korral, a facility that will provide comfortable housing for families of children with cancer.
Before Josh Abbott Band‘s third album, ‘Small Town Family Dream’ ever reached country music airwaves, the band made a big splash when they released ‘Touch’ — the first single off of the album. The Texas natives also created an emotionally-charged video to help promote the song, and it’s sure to be one which tugs at your heart strings.
Here’s a story for the ‘uh-oh’ colum: Popular group Alabama has gotten wrapped up in a big lawsuit with Australian songwriter Allan Caswell. The legendary country troupe’s involvement in the suit, however, is rather tenuous.
Since Lady Antebellum snagged the New Artist of the Year award at the 2008 CMAs, they have racked up countless new awards and added a handful of No. 1 hits to their name. Naturally, along with great country music success comes a little extra spending money. And since Lady A’s Dave Haywood just purchased a $2.1 million home for himself and Kelli Cashiola, his new bride, we have an inkling that the popular trio isn’t hard up for cash these days.
Miranda Lambert‘s dog rescuing habit is getting out of control. It’s obvious that the ‘Over You’ hitmaker has a soft heart for all things furry, but we’re wondering how many dogs she can take care of — or at least, where Blake Shelton will draw the line. For her latest rescue effort, the sweet songstress rescued an adorable tan puppy from a ditch. It’s hard to blame her for picking up this adorable girl, though, as she would be too cute for anyone to pass up!
You might recall that a few weeks ago, Taylor Swift was asked to prom by high school student Devin Whitney from Aurora, Colo. But this wasn’t a standard prom invite. Devin suffers from a rare disease called Oto-Palatal-Digital Syndrome (OPD), which affects his body from head to toe.
If you caught Carrie Underwood‘s powerful performance of ‘Blown Away’ during the Billboard Music Awards 2012 on Sunday night, you know that some of her musical influences lie outside of the country genre. Although the ‘American Idol’ winner is a member of team country music, sometimes her powerhouse vocals point to a different era and genre entirely. Last night on the red carpet, Underwood caught up with MTV to talk about the passing of the Bee Gees’ Robin Gibb — and how he impacted her musical tastes.
Taylor Swift has been getting so many requests from sick, hurt or just plain down-trodden fans these days that it’s hard to keep up. And while she can’t go to every high school prom or give every devoted fan an autograph, the ‘Safe and Sound’ hitmaker does what she can to give back to her superfans. That’s why she responded to a Marine’s request to contact the family of fallen soldier Sergeant Wade Wilson.
It hasn’t been long since Season 2 of ‘The Voice‘ ended, with Team Blake Shelton member Jermaine Paul taking home the crown. But already, NBC is making plans for the next season of the hit singing competition, and network chief Bob Greenblatt has announced that the show will now air twice a year.
