We all know that Martina McBride is a mega-talented singer and performer — but did you know that she has some major skills in the kitchen, as well? Well, ABC’s daytime cooking show, ‘The Chew,’ sure did. They visited the mother of three’s kitchen to hang out with her and cook a delicious meal.
Every year, racing fans, horse lovers, debutantes and country music stars flock to the Kentucky Derby for a day (or an entire weekend, for some) of horse racing, mint juleps and Old South-style fun. Of course, the derby is all about the horses and the galas — unless you’re one of the fashionable folks who would rather just take in the dresses, suits and hats. This year, Miranda Lambert looked to Kate Middleton for fashion inspiration, and the result was a world-class derby hat atop her head.
LeAnn Rimes swears that run-ins with husband Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, aren’t awkward, though Us Magazine begs to differ. On Sunday (May 6), both women attended 5-year-old Jake Cibrian’s soccer game, and while the paparazzi photos captured by the mag make the interaction seem uncomfortable, the ‘Blue’ hitmaker insists that all is well in their combined world.
On Wednesday night (May 2), Blake Shelton took the stage at ‘The Tonight Show’ to perform his new single ‘Over’ after a short — but hilarious — interview with Jay Leno. Shelton took on the role of a tell-all star as he dished about his role on ‘The Voice,’ his one-year anniversary with songstress Miranda Lambert and his deep, deep hatred for skinny jeans.
Before now, country newcomer Greg Bates had probably only dreamed of performing on Nashville’s famed Opry stage, but on Friday night (April 27), that became a reality. Bates sang his new single ‘Did It for the Girl’ for the Grand Ole Opry crowd. While Bates is a fresh face, his song is becoming familiar. The week of its release, ‘Did It for the Girl’ was the most radio added song with 29 adds. It landed just behind superstar Keith Urban.
There’s only one Brantley Gilbert, but that hasn’t stopped an Indiana man from trying to pose as the ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ singer. After sending emails and text messages acting as if he were the country star, 25-year-old Thomas Michael Barth has been charged with two counts of felony theft, according to a statement made by the Warsaw Police Department.
It looks like Jennifer Nettles isn’t the only Sugarland member who wants to spend time coaching young talent. While Nettles is preparing to team up with country hopeful on the ABC reality series ‘Duets’ this summer, her band member Kristian Bush recently started shaping the career of Alana Springsteen, a talented 11-year-old girl who is an aspiring singer.
Despite a rocky 2012, Rodney Atkins will focus his efforts and use his talent to help raise money for cancer research at a Kentucky Derby Eve dinner party. The party, called the Julep, will be held on May 4 in Louisville to benefit the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville. Make no qualms about it, this is an event for those living high on the hog. At $500 a plate, Atkins will have the opportunity to help raise tens of thousands of dollars for the cancer center.
In almost every press shot of Australian couple Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman, they are holding hands. In the media, it seems like the couple is nearly inseparable — so how did Kidman manage to keep Urban’s exciting Grand Ole Opry invitation a secret? She just told a tiny little white lie.
