Merle Haggard Confident About Future of Country Music
If we’re honest, we’ve probably all caught ourselves bemoaning the future of this or that, whether our critiques are directed at a genre of music, politics or even an entire generation. While many veteran artists often become the biggest naysayers for the future of their beloved genres as soon as they’re taken over by a ton of “kids,” Merle Haggard doesn’t buy all that. In a recent interview with
Zac Brown’s Camp Southern Ground to Open in 2014
Zac Brown may have his own band, but that’s just one portion of the star’s entrepreneurial ventures — 1/12 to be exact. Brown helps operate a dozen companies, though he is quick to say he does it “with a lot of help of other people.” But the serial entrepreneur has one endeavor that seems to be taking up more of his time lately, and that’s his non-profit camp Camp Southern Ground, which will be op
Trisha Yearwood + Garth Brooks May Record Album and Tour
While both Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks are highly celebrated names in country music, they’re also parents, which does more to dictate their schedule at the moment than audience demand. However, with their youngest daughter set to graduate high school in 2014, the couple are starting to let themselves dream about life as empty-nesters.
Eli Young Band Thank Fans With Free Songs
Eli Young Band have literally seen their career catapult onto center stage in the past few months. After their single ‘Crazy Girl’ became their first No.1 hit, the four-man country outfit snagged an ACM Award for Song of the Year with the same smash hit, making an underdog story to be remembered. But even in the face of so many great things at once, the guys are not about to forget who it was that
Keith Urban Working ‘Feverishly’ on Next Record
We’ve seen a good bit of Keith Urban lately, what with his recent No. 1 single ‘You Gonna Fly,’ his surprise induction into the Grand Ole Opry and his role as a celebrity coach on the Australian version of ‘The Voice.’ But one thing most of Urban’s fans might not know is that between all of the appearances, the singer is also hard at work on his next record.
Carrie Underwood to Perform First-Ever UK Concert Alongside ‘Blown Away’ Release
Carrie Underwood is maybe one of the biggest country stars in the US, and now the ‘Good Girl’ singer is taking her voice, her live show and her upcoming record ‘Blown Away‘ across the pond so that she can conquer UK. Scheduled for her first-ever UK show June 21 at the Royal Albert Hall, Underwood is poised and ready to blow away some Brits and make some new fans.
George Jones Cancels More Tour Dates Per Doctor’s Orders
Octogenarian George Jones has had quite the roller coaster of health news this year. The legendary singer was released from the hospital at the beginning of this month after being treated for an upper respiratory infection. At that point, he planned on jumping back into his tour, but then two weeks ago he had to follow doctor’s orders to postpone a set of weekend shows. Still, the ‘He Stopped Lovi
Miranda Lambert and Ashton Kutcher to Meet for First Time Since ACM Awards Tiff
The last time Miranda Lambert and Ashton Kutcher came face to face, Kutcher was presenting Lambert with the coveted ACM Award for Female Vocalist of the Year. But the ‘Two and a Half Men’ funny guy behaved in such a way that seemed to tick off the sassy starlet just a bit. Dressed in over-the-top country garb — a cowboy hat and a rather gaudy red blazer — Kutcher sang a few bars of George Strait‘s
The Band Perry Shoot ‘Postcard From Paris’ Video in New Orleans
This week, the Band Perry are hanging out in New Orleans, Louisiana shooting their music video for their single ‘Postcard From Paris,’ and from the looks of a photo they posted to Twitter, they seem to be enjoying themselves. The sibling trio took to Twitter to share one photo from the shoot — a snapshot of the three of them at New Orleans’ famous French market and coffee stand Cafe Du Monde, whic
Taylor Swift Dresses Up for a Night on the Town in Shirley MacLaine’s Honor
It seems that Taylor Swift and her friends love a good dress up party now and then. But these girls aren’t donning black miniskirts and red high heels for a night on the town. No, they’re more likely to be found in ribbons and lace, looking more like something out of ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ than ‘Sex and the City.’
Brad Paisley Gets Cartooned for ‘South Park’ Appearance
Brad Paisley will be making a special television appearance tonight (April 25), but you won’t be seeing the star in person. The ‘Celebrity’ singer will transform into a cartoon to make a cameo on the Comedy Central hit show ‘South Park’ at 10PM ET.
Kenny Chesney Dishes on Touring With Tim McGraw and What Fans Can Expect This Time Around
The last time Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw hit the road together was more than 10 years ago in the early 2000s, with McGraw primarily headlining. Now, the two country stars who have seen their careers shoot them into international stardom are at it again, gearing up for their 2012 Brothers of the Sun Tour, which kicks off in Tampa, Fla. on June 2 and runs for 19 days.
