Blake Shelton may not be a fan of all the background dancers and glitzy staging he sees on ‘The Voice‘ — and he’s taken a little flack for his critiques from fellow judges who insinuate that he just doesn’t appreciate the art of staging. But that doesn’t mean the country king can’t appreciate things outside his own genre. If there’s one pop craze to which Shelton unabashedly subscribes, it’s Justin Bieber.
Just a few weeks ago, country legend George Jones was released from the hospital after a six-day stay for an upper respiratory infection. While Jones seemed to be on the mend at the time, and planned to dive back into his tour schedule starting April 20, the ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ legend just announced on his website that he’s postponing his shows this weekend — April 20 and 21 — due to an ongoing recovery.
Carrie Underwood fans are waiting expectantly for May 1, when they will finally be able to snag a copy of the starlet’s upcoming record ‘Blown Away.’ But before her newest work hits the shelves, the ‘Before He Cheats’ singer is poised to hit the web as a part of a ‘Live on Letterman’ webcast. The award-winning concert series will feature Underwood performing a mix of her beloved hits and her new single ‘Good Girl‘ from her forthcoming record.
Last Tuesday (April 10), Keith Urban and a host of celebrity acts took Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena by storm to play to a sold-out audience of nearly 14,000 fans. The event, the Urban-hosted We’re All for the Hall benefit concert, served to raise money for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. This year, Urban was joined by Vince Gill, who helped him land on the theme to celebrate country duos, vocal groups and bands.
As we reported earlier, Garth Brooks is headed up to Canada later this year to take part in the Calgary Stampede music festival, which will last from July 6 to July 15. Brooks will be bringing his show to the Calgary audience on July 12, and no sooner had tickets for his show gone on sale Saturday than they were gone. In just 58 seconds, according to the Calgary Herald, every single one of the 15,322 tickets for Brooks’ show had been purchased.
The sibling trio the Band Perry may be getting ready to hit the road once again for Brad Paisley‘s Virtual Reality Tour, but off the road they’re partnering with Paisley’s actress wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley to help in the fight against hunger.
Carrie Underwood took the April/May 2012 cover of Vegas magazine, and this week she’s staring back at us from the front of Billboard’s April 21 issue. Looking striking in black with black lace gloves, Underwood is more intentionally disheveled than we usually see her, with her blonde locks blowing freely as the starlet holds them back. The cover story bears the title ‘Carrie Underwood Plays On.’
In addition to her powerhouse country music career, Taylor Swift has been slowly dipping her toe into the waters of acting. Most recently, she starred as the voice of Audrey in the Dr. Seuss film ‘The Lorax,’ but the blonde starlet has had a significant taste of the big screen in her young career. In 2010, she portrayed a high school student in love in the flick ‘Valentine’s Day.’
Lady Antebellum are about to jump into the summer leg of their Own the Night World Tour, and though the second half of the tour won’t officially kick off until May 3 at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, the trio has already sold more than 750,000 tickets for the tour as a whole. This may come as no surprise to fans who have watched Lady A shoot quickly to the top, but Dave Haywood says it’s continually exciting for him and his bandmates.
Sugarland was scheduled to begin their video deposition today (April 12) concerning the August 13 Indiana State Fair tragedy and the lawsuits suggesting that they resisted delaying the start of their show. Since the collapse that killed seven and injured dozens more, fingers have been pointed at everyone from Sugarland to Mid-America Sound Corp, the company that owned the stage and the light rigging. But the band says no one cares more about getting this resolved than they do.
Rascal Flatts dropped their eighth studio album, ‘Changed,’ on April 3, and it debuted at the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200. This week, however, the trio’s newest project elbowed its way past the Top 2 and landed at No. 1, having sold nearly 130,000 copies in its first week. This marks the ‘Banjo‘ singers’ seventh No. 1 record in a row and their second release with Big Machine Label Group.
As a celebrity coach on NBC’s hit show ‘The Voice,’ Blake Shelton spends most of his time sitting alongside his fellow coaches in his futuristic-looking red swivel chair that has become such an integral part of the show. But next week, the laid-back country coach will be taking a break from his chair-warming duties to join his four remaining team members onstage. Though Shelton has a slight advantage over his team members (he can’t get voted off), he will be stepping into their shoes Monday night (April 16) for a joint performance.
