Taylor Swift is not one to hide her philanthropic heart or her concern for the well-being of children everywhere. The multi-Grammy award-winning 22-year-old has given generously of her time and money to work toward better early childhood education and to empower young children to have the resources to read. Now, there’s an internet campaign going on to raise awareness of the horrors of militant Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony, and Swift is in full support.
Brad Paisley just wrapped the most recent leg of his Virtual Reality Tour on Saturday (March 3) in Lexington, Ky., and from the looks of it, the ‘Remind Me’ singer is not planning on pausing for any amount of time. This week, Paisley announced he’ll be continuing his tour with the two openers who he took on the road for the first part — the Band Perry and Scotty McCreery. Plus, Easton Corbin will be joining for certain shows.
It’s going to be a long time before any of us truly forgets that awkwardly painful moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards between Taylor Swift and Kanye West. After Swift won the award for Best Female Video, the rapper charged the stage in the middle of her acceptance speech, hijacked the mic and made a rant in favor of Beyoncé. Whether you’re a Swift fan or not, that was a moment of discomfort for everyone involved. Even so, a recent move by the country starlet seems to suggest that she’s willing to forgive and (at least try to) forget.
Each week on the remaining episodes of ‘American Idol‘ Season 11, one unfortunate hopeful will have to leave the stage for good. Rather than making that moment more awkward with silence or a peppy pop song spinning in the background, ‘Idol’ commissioned last season’s winner Scotty McCreery to record the farewell song to make it a memorable moment. McCreery chose to do a cover of Tim McGraw‘s 1999 hit, ‘Please Remember Me.’
Though Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have become quite the ‘it couple’ in and beyond the realm of country music, the two agree that they’re not planning for kids anytime soon. In a recent interview with US Weekly, Shelton explained that while they will be ringing in their first anniversary in May, they’re content to put off that next step for just a little while longer.
Today (March 6), the Country Music Association announced that Garth Brooks will become one of the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame, along with keyboardist Hargus “Pigg” Robbins and singer Connie Smith. It comes as no surprise, of course, that this once-in-a-lifetime honor is being bestowed upon the record-setting, hit-spreading country king.
More than 20 years ago, in March of 1991, Reba McEntire experienced a tragedy that will stay with her for the rest of her life. On Sunday night (March 4), the country star opened up on the OWN show ‘Oprah’s Master Class’ about the tragic plane crash that took the lives of seven of her band members, as well as her tour manager and two pilots.
The big country music event slated for April is the telecast of the Academy of Country Music Awards, but now there’s another significant televised event happening soon after. On April 13, CBS will be featuring ‘ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert,’ which will include a variety of country duets featuring Lionel Richie and some of the top stars from ACMs, which air on April 1.
If there’s one thing you need to know about Brad Paisley before ever signing up to go on tour with him, it’s that the high-energy singer is anything but predictable. In a witty turn of events this past weekend, Paisley ended his prank war with young talent Scotty McCreery by not pranking the ‘The Trouble With Girls’ singer at all, instead going after the other young band on tour with him — the Band Perry.
Little Big Town released their last record, ‘The Reason Why,’ in 2010, and now they’re hitting the studio once again with the goal of bringing to life their next release, which will be their fifth as a band. For this project, the group is teaming up with producer Jay Joyce, who has worked with artists like the endlessly successful Eric Church and the Wallflowers.
Few things are as inherently southern as iced tea and country music. Perhaps that’s why country mega-trio Lady Antebellum have partnered with the biggest tea brand in the United States, Lipton, to promote the beverage to their fans across the country. Unilever, the company that owns Lipton and works in partnership with PepsiCo, recently announced plans to unroll a giant marketing campaign with Lady Antebellum in 2012, including national ads on TV, in print, on the radio, on the Internet and more.
If you’re having a particularly difficult time choosing your prom theme for this year — the Vegas theme is a little tired and you’re tired of standing by a cardboard miniature of the Eiffel Tower — Lady Antebellum are offering up a pretty compelling alternative. The country trio would like to suggest a different option, and they’re even willing to come help you pull it off. How about an ‘Own the Night’-themed prom?
