The countdown to the 2012 CMT Music Awards is on! This Wednesday night (June 6), country music fanatics will get to see country’s top performers take the stage at the awards show. Plus, fans will also catch a glimpse of their favorite artists presenting awards to this year’s winners.
Unfortunately, the saying “all good things comes to an end” does include Lady Antebellum‘s wildly popular headlining Own the Night 2012 World Tour. The award-winning trio has announced the dates for the final leg of the tour, which wraps in Australia this October.
If you’ve ever visited Blake Shelton‘s official Twitter account, you know just how funny the ‘Hillbilly Bone’ country superstar can be. Although Lionel Richie was aware of the singer’s reputation, the music legend admits he was surprised at Shelton’s knack for telling a good joke as they were recording ‘You Are’ for Richie’s country duets project, ‘Tuskegee.’
If you’ve watched Craig Morgan‘s video for ‘This Ole Boy,’ you’ve witnessed the undeniable chemistry between the country superstar and his on-screen love interest, actress Angie Harmon. Morgan and the beautiful brunette are uniting once again, this time in Harmon’s familiar territory when the singer guest-stars in an episode of ‘Rizzoli & Isles,’ the actresses’ popular TNT network drama.
We’re sure that Luke Bryan is having a blast opening for Jason Aldean‘s My Kinda Party Tour this summer, but fans who are craving more live Luke Bryan will get their wish in 2013. The ‘Drunk on You’ singer is planning to headline his own tour next year.
Just as we thought Garth Brooks‘ Wynn Las Vegas Encore Theater residency was coming to an end, the iconic entertainer has released a string of new dates for the stage show, which will take place between September and November of 2012.
We don’t know about you, but we’re definitely ‘blown away’ by Carrie Underwood‘s most recent album (yeah, we know that’s a bad joke). On a more serious note, though, Underwood’s latest album has topped Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart for four consecutive weeks. ‘Blown Away’ is the first album since 2010 to debut at No. 1 and hold that slot for so many weeks in a row.
Being married isn’t always easy — and things can definitely get complicated when the couple works in the same industry. That’s the case with country superstars Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, who have both won many awards and have a slew of No. 1 singles to their name. In a recent sit-down with Parade.com, the outspoken singer admits she and her hubby compete from time to time, but it’s all in good fun.
Some of Toby Keith‘s ‘bad A’ patriotic songs can make him sound like a tough guy, but the truth is that the country star is always willing to donate time and money to help sick children and other people in need. For his latest act of generosity, the 9th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic helped raise $664,000 for OK Kids Korral, a facility that will provide comfortable housing for families of children with cancer.
There’s nothing like seeing one of your favorite artists sit down with an acoustic guitar and take part in an unplugged country music jam. Thanks to the resurrection of CMT’s ‘CMT: Unplugged‘ series, country music fans will soon have the chance to see more talented artists play unplugged sets. When Dierks Bentley took his turn this time around, he put on an unforgettable rendition of Adele‘s ‘Set Fire to the Rain.’
If you’ve been following Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher’s plans to have children, you know that in a recent interview with Oprah the happy couple had differing opinions on when to start their family. But that seems like a minor glitch compared to the bomb Fisher dropped later: He wants seven children. Is Underwood up for mothering that many kids?
Last week, the CMT Awards announced the beginnings of a performance lineup for the 2012 show. The original bill was already pretty stellar, as it includes big names like Carrie Underwood and Kenny Chesney on the roster. But the performance schedule got quite a bit sweeter when a few country icons and future country legends joined the ticket.
