Since releasing their self-titled debut album in 2009, country music trio Gloriana has quickly become a break-through artist. And they have an awards shelf at home to prove it, too. The year they dropped their first album, they scored an American Music Award for Breakthrough Artist, and in 2010, won Academy of Country Music Award for Top New Vocal Group. But since then, things have been a little quiet for band members Tom Gossin, Mike Gossin and Rachel Reinhardt — but only for a few more weeks.
With his signature pigtail braids and hippie-inspired song lyrics, Willie Nelson doesn’t exactly seem like a golf guy. But once again, the legendary country icon surprised us by launching the first-annual Willie Nelson Celebrity Golf Tournament in Briarcliff, Texas, which will benefit the Pedernales Fire Department, the Helping Hands Crisis Ministry, the Children’s Music Foundation and the RunTex Foundation.
They might all sing with a country twang, but according to Rolling Stone, Taylor Swift, Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline all qualify for the Women Who Rock list. The countdown celebrates “50 of the fiercest albums that female rock & rollers have given the world,” and it includes Lady Gaga, Carole King, Lucinda Williams and — of course — Aretha Franklin, among others.
It seems like these days, everyone is jumping on the country music bandwagon — even television shows! Country music was already well-represented on the small screen with Blake Shelton on ‘The Voice‘ and Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles on ‘Duets.’ And now, E!’s new show ‘Opening Act’ has added Martina McBride to the list of country stars making waves on television.
Even though Carrie Underwood is a few years Taylor Swift‘s senior, that hasn’t stopped music critics from lumping the two popular blonde singers into the same mold. Both Underwood and Swift have major crossover power, but that doesn’t mean that they are cut from the same cloth. In fact, Underwood recently told BANG Showbiz that she hates being compared to her 22-year-old fellow country/pop star.
This year, Trisha Yearwood has managed to add another job title to her resume: Cooking show host. The country music star showed off her kitchen skills on the Food Network this spring in a six-episode series called ‘Trisha Yearwood’s Southern Kitchen.’ The first season of the show was just a test run, but as it turns out, cooking fans love the ‘She’s in Love With the Boy’ hitmaker just as much as country music fans — the show has been renewed for a second season.
Sara Evans and her husband, Jay Barker, already have seven kids between them — but that hasn’t kept the happy couple from wanting to add one more little one to their gigantic family. No one has spotted a baby bump just yet, but Evans recently opened up to OK! magazine about her desire to have another child.
Naomi Judd has a lot of titles to choose from: She’s a country star, speaker, author, talk show host and an actress, too. Once again, fans will get to see the multi-talented singer’s role-playing skills in action when she appears in ‘The Nearlyweds,’ a made-for-television Hallmark movie.
Ever since teenage country star Scotty McCreery won Season 10 of ‘American Idol,’ he hasn’t stopped giving props to the popular show that gave him his big start in country music. On Tuesday, McCreery even stopped by to lend some encouraging words as future ‘Idol’ hopefuls gathered in Charlotte, N.C. to try out for the show’s next season.
In case you missed Jennifer Nettles’ good news this week, it’s that she and her husband of seven months, Justin Miller, are expecting their first child. Fans and country music industry peeps poured out their congratulations to the couple after the Sugarland star’s manager shared the good news on Monday.
