As the star-laced lineup for the 2012 CMA Music Fest is unrolled, it would seem the Country Music Association is saving the most legendary for last. The Association just announced the newest talent slated to set their boots on the stage of Nashville’s LP Field in early June, and they’re undoubtedly adding some of the biggest heavy hitters yet. Among them are legends like Glen Campbell, Kenny Rogers, Ronnie Milsap and the Mavericks, who will be reuniting for the show after almost 10 years apart.
Just a couple weeks after a string of deadly, tornado-laden storms ripped through the southeast, Rodney Atkins is going live on the radio station WRIL-The Big 106 to host a radio drive raising money for the storm victims. Atkins will especially be growing support for those communities that took the hardest hit in the March 2 storms – Harrogate, Tenn., West Liberty, Ky., and East Bernstadt, Ky.
Jason Aldean has taken the country music world by storm in the past few years, shooting out of the ranks of wannabe country stars and into sold-out arena tours. The ‘My Kinda Party’ singer may perform to 20,000 people on any given night, and his songs have been climbing the charts like kids on a playground. Even so, the laid-back country hitmaker says he’s not about to go around giving other hopefuls advice — especially not on a reality TV show.
After more than 90 shows in Europe and South America performing as the lead singer of Journey, Filipino rocker Arnel Pineda recently told ABS-CBN morning show Kris TV that the American rock band is about to take a step toward a country collaboration. According to LazyRocker.com, Pineda said that Journey have plans in 2012 to perform with Rascal Flatts for ‘CMT Crossroads.’
At the 2011 Grammy Awards, Miranda Lambert took home a coveted award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her stirring single ‘The House That Built Me.’ It was one of those songs that came out of the pipeline resonating deeply with people across the country. NASCAR driver Jamie McMurray recently told Scene Daily that the song took on new meaning for him after his childhood Joplin, Mo. home was ripped to pieces by one of the deadliest tornadoes to tear through the U.S. in decades.
Rascal Flatts‘ Jay DeMarcus is slated to make his film debut next year along with Trace Adkins in the holiday film ‘Saving Santa.’ With Kix Brooks sitting in the executive director chair, it’s no surprise that this upcoming release has so many country ties. Touted as “a sweet, funny, holiday story about the belief in love, goodness and the spirit of Christmas,” ‘Saving Santa’ is set to debut next year.
