On Thursday, April 5, nearly 600 elementary students at East Tennessee’s Doak Elementary School got a surprise meet and greet with award-winning sibling trio the Band Perry. Though the students didn’t expect the visit from the ‘All Your Life’ singers, they certainly deserved it. The elementary school, which the Perrys attended when they were young, had just raised more than $40,000 for the American Cancer Society.
In 2000, young singer Billy Gilman exploded onto the music scene as a 12-year-old with a killer voice and the musical chops to take him places. He released a debut record called ‘One Voice,’ sold more than 2 million copies and then had to take a step back from the industry when puberty put a crimp in his vocal style. Now, almost 12 years later, Gilman has found his voice again, and he’s choosing to use it for the sake of others.
This week, country stars Justin Moore and Miranda Lambert tweeted their disapproval for Ashton Kutcher’s dress and performance at last weekend’s ACM Awards. And while Lambert primarily mentioned that she thought Kutcher may have been poking fun rather than coming at the country genre in sincerity, Moore was quite a bit more candid with his thoughts, ending with, “I don’t care for people making a mockery of the way country artists’ dress.”
We told you way back in January that young country crooner Scotty McCreery is scheduled to make an appearance on the CW’s show ‘Hart of Dixie’ later in April. And of course, he’ll be doing what he does best — crooning. Thanks to TV Guide, we now have more details about his guest-starring role. McCreery will serenade the characters George and Zoe (played by Scott Porter and Rachel Bilson, respectively) in the April 23 episode of the Southern-based comedic drama.
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw have been seeing a good bit of each other lately, as the two polish their boots in preparation for their upcoming Brothers of the Sun Tour, which kicks off June 2 in Tampa, Fla. Plus, the pair of country studs hit the ACM stage this past weekend (Sunday, April 1) to perform their new joint single ‘Feel Like a Rock Star.’ And then today (April 4), the two took their rocking single to the stage of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’
‘American Idol‘ has been featuring some of their successful alums in recent episodes, with names like Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina taking the stage as of late to show this season’s hopefuls just what a career in music can look like. Now, another ‘Idol’ country success story — Kellie Pickler — is gearing up to take the stage, and she announced the news over Twitter… but without giving everything away to her fans right away.
Kelly Clarkson is well into her 2012 Stronger Tour, and last night (April 3) she took the stage at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater with several of her musical celebrity friends. Those joining the ‘Idol’ star onstage included country greats Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton.
If your name is Taylor Swift, then one thing you’re never going to be free from (or, at least until marriage) are dating rumors. It seems Swift’s fanbase and the media alike would love to see the country starlet with a beau. And while others have to announce their romances by becoming Facebook official or tweeting a sweet nothing, all Miss Swift has to do is look someone in the eyes or share a meal with a guy (and his agent) and — bam — love is in the air.
Jason Aldean released his fourth studio album, ‘My Kinda Party,’ in November of 2010, and since then he’s seen his career skyrocket as his singles climb the charts with a ferocity and his My Kinda Party Tour continues to sell out faster than tickets can go on sale. In an interview backstage at Sunday’s (April 1) ACM Awards, Aldean told reporters that he’s finished with his fifth studio album and ready to release the first single to the world this summer.
When we’re watching ‘The Voice‘ each week, we occasionally see hear a pesky little “bleep!” and see a tiny sensor bubble covering the mouth of any one of the celebrity judges — though some more than others. With the live shows coming up on Monday (April 2), and the luxury of the timely bleeps going away, judges Blake Shelton and Adam Levine are resolving to do something about those dirty words before they slip out on live television.
Last year, sibling trio the Band Perry made their way to the ACM Awards in Las Vegas, where they took home the fan-voted New Artist of the Year Award. Even so, the band wasn’t officially nominated for an award, and the youngest Perry sibling, Neil, was still too young to even try his hand at a Vegas slot machine. This year, however, the band has an official nod for Vocal Group of the Year, and they say they’re excited to get out to Las Vegas and hang out with some of the best names in country music.
It’s the moment nobody in the world hopes for — the moment when Justin Bieber gives you a hug and says, “Guess what? You just got ‘Punk’d.’” That was the reality for Taylor Swift recently, after the sweet songstress thought she’d set off a firework that caught a boat on fire, ruining a wedding taking place on said boat and causing the bride and groom to dive into the ocean to swim for their lives. Yeah, it was a pretty cruel one, and it all started when the Biebs chose Swift as his target for the second life of the MTV show.
