Blake Shelton and his touring crew took their show to Key Arena in Seattle, Wash. this weekend. And while Shelton has had a few guests with him on this Well Lit & Amplified Tour — he’s traveling with ‘The Voice‘ finalist Dia Frampton and Justin Moore — Friday night (March 9) he invited another famous country star onto the stage with him: his wife.
It’s nothing new to hear of a country star bringing a special guest onstage to help with a song — in fact, it happens all the time. But sometimes said stars pull adorable little girls out of the audience to help them finish out their set at the Opry, and that’s an entirely different story. At his sold-out Grand Ole Opry show on Friday (March 9), Keith Urban did just that, adding a giant dose of adorable to the end of his performance.
ABC Drama is filming a pilot for a new show titled ‘Nashville,’ which will of course revolve around the life of a 40-year-0ld fictional country superstar who’s struggling with a dip in her career, trying to stay afloat in the industry. But, before you roll your eyes and claim you’ve seen this show one too many times, there’s one thing you have to know: Playing the part of Rayna James, the fading country star, will be none other than the beloved Connie Britton, best known for her role as the understanding yet sassy mom on ‘Friday Night Lights.’
While the stereotypical groom is content to do his part in the marriage proposal and leave the dirty planning details to the bride-to-be, Lady Antebellum‘s Dave Haywood said in a recent interview with People that he’s enjoying the process of making arrangements for the big day.
Today, the Academy of Country Music announced an additional star-studded lineup of performers for the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which will take place the evening of Sunday, April 1. Included in the newly-unrolled cast of country greats are Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Chris Young, the Band Perry and Rascal Flatts. Arguably one of the biggest nights in country music, second only to the CMAs, the awards show will be broadcast live from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand.
Trace Adkins has made his share of video and television appearances. The ‘You’re Gonna Miss This’ singer recently said that he’d like to costar in a film with fellow country talent Blake Shelton. And while we haven’t yet had the opportunity of seeing Shelton on the big screen, the Boot just released a new clip of the most recent Trace Adkins film, ‘Wyatt Earp’s Revenge,’ which you can view below.
We’ve seen her in her own television shows, on Broadway, in film and especially on stage, and we’re about to witness Reba McEntire in the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame as well. The country queen, who is already an esteemed member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry, will be inducted into the West Coast hall of fame this year to round out her list of illustrious awards and accolades.
May would be a pretty nice time to be a celebrity, since you might have the chance to head out to the Atlantis in the Bahamas and take a swing at the 11th annual Michael Douglas & Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament. Taking place May 25-27, the televised golf tournament will take place at the Ocean Club Golf Course and will raise money for two great organizations.
Billboard released their official ‘Music’s Top Money Makers 2012‘ list yesterday (March 9) and sitting atop the celebrity-packed lineup was none other than country pop princess Taylor Swift. With a mind-boggling $35 million takeaway from 2011, Swift is sitting pretty just above some huge names — U2 came in second with $32 million — due primarily to her ‘Speak Now’ record and the accompanying world tour.
Earlier this week, Eric Church and his band set out to film a video for Church’s ‘Springsteen,’ the third single from his Grammy-nominated record, ‘Chief.’ The country hitmaker officially released the single at the beginning of this year, and now he’s working on the music video to accompany it. But for the filming, he didn’t block off Broadway in Nashville or rent out the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. In fact, according to CMTT, Church was spotted shooting the video in a neighborhood setting in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The Country Music Association just announced a few additions to the lineup for the 2012 CMA Music Festival.

This year’s biggest night in country music will be taking over Nashville from June 7 through June 10.
It’s a bromance made in heaven. The tall, handsome cowboy who’s hesitant to show his soft side meets the artistic, brooding rocker who wears his feelings like a name tag. No, it’s not the preview for another terrible made-for-TV movie — it’s the man crush action happening between Blake Shelton and his fellow ‘The Voice‘ coach Adam Levine. If you’ve watched the show, you’ve seen the sparks flying from that first red chair to that fourth one. And in a recent interview with MTV, the country star opened up and admitted his feelings.
