It’s not clear what exactly happened when Jo Dee Messina and Chris Young came face to face recently, but it definitely left a bad taste in the ‘My Give a Damn’s Busted’ hitmaker’s mouth. Messina took to her Twitter page early Tuesday morning (July 24) to let her 42,000 followers know that she was less than impressed by rising country music star Chris Young.
Sinus infection: 2, Alan Jackson: 0. The legendary country star missed two performances this weekend, the first of which was cited as a reason for canceling the other. The promoter of the Jukebox Music Festival shut the event down hours after it became clear Jackson would not be performing.
For months now, Brad Paisley has been hard at work on his new album, the follow-up to 2011′s ‘This Is Country Music.’ After plenty of hours logged in the studio, the award-winning country star already has seven songs confirmed for the album — but this one will be different. Paisley is adamant that this record will hit the shelves with an organic, edit-free sound.
Taylor Swift might have a shelf full of trophies and platinum records, but she’s not too high on the hog to poke a little fun at herself every now and then. Known for being a pretty funny gal in addition to a country music hitmaker, Swift’s latest laugh is a hilarious promo video for the 10th season of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’
Just because the rest of us have been wearing out Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Blown Away’ album all summer doesn’t mean that the country star likes to listen to her own music. The fact that ‘Blown Away’ sat perched atop the Billboard country chart for five straight weeks doesn’t seem to phase her either. In a recent interview with Australia’s ‘The Morning Show,’ Underwood admitted that she hasn’t listened to the record for a while.
For the past year, attorneys have been preparing to battle over who is responsible for a stage rigging error that caused a stage to collapse at the Indiana State Fair in August, killing seven people and injuring dozens before a Sugarland concert. Unfortunately, now it will be much more difficult to reach a verdict in the case, which goes to trial on April 1, 2014. Last weekend, steel cables that were part of the stage rigging system were stolen from the warehouse where they were being stored with other wreckage from the collapse.
A few weeks ago, we reported that Miranda Lambert called on a new friend to help out with her upcoming music video for ‘The Fastest Girl in Town.’ Naturally, NASCAR racing star Danica Patrick was the most fitting lady to play the lead part. Both Patrick and Lambert tweeted about how much fun they had shooting the video, and it sounds like the camera crew recorded a lot — really, a lot — of good footage. Today, we learned that the clip will be more like a mini-movie than a music video.
Taylor Swift isn’t the kind of girl who gets stuck in a beauty rut. Just when we get used to a signature Swift hairstyle or makeup routine, she’s bound to change it up on us. Last year, she threw country music fans a curveball by cutting straight bangs into her previously always-curly blonde hair. Now, she’s dropped a real bomb, dying her hair brown — or at least a much darker shade of blonde — for her recent CoverGirl shoot.
With her first four albums debuting at No. 1 and 15 chart-topping singles under her belt, Carrie Underwood has quite the story to tell. Plus, she has that whole winning ‘American Idol’ in 2005 thing to brag about, too. If you’ve ever wondered how Underwood went from being a smalltown Oklahoma girl to a megastar, VH1 is going to answer all of your questions. Rumor has it that the ‘Good Girl’ songstress is going to be featured on VH1′s famed storyteller show, ‘Behind the Music.’
When Reese Witherspoon transformed into June Carter Cash in the Johnny Cash biopic ‘Walk the Line,’ she turned quite a few heads for her spot-on renditions of ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’ and ‘Jackson.’ By now, we all know that Witherspoon has what it takes to play the part of a major country star — and Carrie Underwood knows it, too. In a recent interview with KO Video, Underwood said that if she could choose one actress to play her role in a biopic, it would be Witherspoon.
Although Keith Urban has fully enjoyed coaching talented singers on ‘The Voice’ in Australia, there’s no chance that the ‘You Gonna Fly’ hitmaker will trade in his guitar for a permanent reality TV contract anytime soon. While Urban would be thrilled to do another season of ‘The Voice,’ he told Australian radio’s Kyle & Jackie O Show that making music is still priority No. 1.
