Lauren Alaina came thisclose to winning ‘American Idol‘ last season, but she didn’t need to the official title to launch a legitimate, more-than-respectable country career. She’s doing just fine as the runner-up, but she still returned to the show’s stage tonight (March 8, 2012) for a guest spot, performing her rowdy, rocking single ‘Georgia Peaches.’ My, how far she’s come in a year.
Miranda Lambert‘s go-to jewelry designer is obviously Karen Lindner. She created the gorgeous, choker-style necklace that Lambert wears in her new video for ‘Over You,’ as well as the jewelry that the singer and her bridal party wore at the reception for her May 2011 wedding to Blake Shelton.
Ever since we first met Skylar Laine, her ‘American Idol‘ performances have exploded like rock-infused country music firecrackers. She stomps around the stage, with a spring in her step and a twang in her voice like a mini Reba. While we love when she does her thang, it was time for us to see and hear something different and new from her.
Carrie Underwood warned her Twitter followers that she was planning a sneak attack late last night (March 2), but she didn’t share the details right away. It left us wondering what exactly the ‘Good Girl’ singer had on her mind.
Reba McEntire was the subject of Friday night’s (March 2) NBC documentary series ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ As the star of the show, McEntire was given the opportunity to trace her ancestral roots back several centuries in America and England and chart her familial course. The fire-haired singer did discover things that pained her greatly, such as the fact that one of her great grandfathers was a slave owner while another was an indentured servant himself.
Martina McBride and her husband John have been married for nearly 24 years. That’s an eternity in this day and age, as recent stats indicate that nearly one out of every two marriages routinely ends in divorce. McBride shared the secret to her successful, two-decade marriage, revealing that it’s the small things that count.
Miranda Lambert has a more active role on this season of ‘The Voice.’ While she supported her husband, coach Blake Shelton, last season and performed with his finalist Dia Frampton on air, this season, she’s more deeply involved as an advisor to Shelton’s team.
‘The Voice‘ contestants Brian Fuente and Nicolle Galyon have a thing for Grace Potter and Kenny Chesney, respectively. In this video, the duo performs Chesney’s ‘You and Tequila,’ but to mix things up, Fuente sings Potter’s parts and Galyon sings Chesney’s.
Former Monkees singer Davy Jones died of a heart attack today (Feb. 29) at the age of 66. Though Jones was a pop icon, memorizing kids of the ’60s with his television series band, even country stars were affected by the loss and shared fond memories of the singer and the show via Twitter. It just goes to show that music is a universal language, regardless of genre.
Dierks Bentley is a member of the million mile club. The singer just wrapped the Canadian leg of his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Thursday, Feb. 23. Upon crossing the border to re-enter his home (or is that ‘Home?’) country of the U.S., “Old Goldie,” his tour bus, logged its millionth mile. Congrats to Bentley on all that hard work, making fans the grassroots way by hitting the road and playing shows. But more importantly, congrats to Old Goldie. It’s quite an accomplishment, even if we’re wondering if she needs a new transmission thanks to all those miles.
The country genre is cooking on Time’s list of Top 10 Celebrity Restaurants. Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill and Kenny Rogers’ Kenny Rogers Roasters both made the cut. Keith and Rogers certainly know their way around the recording studio and the live stage, but they also know how to be successful entrepreneurs in the food biz.
Alan Jackson remains one of the most beloved artists of the country genre. Want proof? Well, the superstar broke the all-time attendance record at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo on Thursday night (Feb. 23), drawing 17,000 fans. Jackson has played this particular event 15 times throughout his career, but this week’s crowd was the largest he’d ever performed before.
