This year, ring in the New Year right with a little bit of country music! Lauren Alaina will kick off the festivities on Fox’s ‘American Country New Year’s Eve Live’ special, which will air at 11PM ET on Dec. 31.
LeAnn Rimes is already five songs deep into her next album, and she hopes to have it wrapped and on the shelves by the summer of 2012. In a new interview with the Tennessean, the former child star spilled all of the details of how things are coming about with the project, which she says will be more of a traditional country release than her previous works.
Taylor Swift lived out a real-life Cinderella story at Saturday night’s annual Nashville Symphony Ball. The ‘Love Story’ songstress dressed to impress in a romantic silver and blue ball gown, ready to be honored with this year’s Harmony Award — an award which is bestowed on an individual who “exemplifies the harmonious spirit of Nashville’s thriving musical community.”
Blake Shelton got a glimmer of good news yesterday after a heavy week. His father, Dick Shelton, who was taken to the hospital for pneumonia on Dec. 5, could be released as soon as Friday. The ‘God Gave Me You’ hitmaker breathed a virtual sigh of relief when he announced the potential news to his Twitter followers, saying, “Thank you all for the prayers for my dad… Hoping he gets to go home Friday.”
Blake Shelton has a funny way of saying “congratulations.” The friendly ‘Honey Bee’ hitmaker laid a kiss on Keifer Thompson after the Thompson Square husband-wife duo walked away with three awards at the 2011 American Country Awards on Monday, but the male vocalist wasn’t bothered by it — he said Shelton has really nice lips.
2011 has been plentiful for Jason Aldean. He took home six awards at Monday’s American Country Awards show alone. But with the holidays around the corner, the ‘Tattoos on This Town’ singer is planning to settle into hiding until the new year so that he can enjoy the things he’s thankful for, like his family.
The best dressed artists at any given music awards show are often as news-making as the winners themselves, and tonight’s 2011 American Country Award’ best dressed were no exception. We want to bring special attention to adorable ‘American Idol’ duo Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, who both made our list of the ACAs’ most stylish, which is pretty impressive given their short awards show resume.
Garth Brooks is currently playing a string of dates at the Las Vegas’ Wynn Casino, which run through February, but don’t expect him to take his show on the road for a full tour just yet. The 49-year-old country music icon won’t be coming out of retirement, at least until his youngest daughter graduates from college in 2014.
In a time of economic grief, Ronnie Dunn‘s hit ‘Cost of Livin’‘ resonates with many people — not just country music fans. That’s why the song has been picked up as the central theme of two upcoming TV episodes of ‘The Doctors’ and ‘Dr. Phil.’
Toby Keith won’t make his ‘Glee‘ television debut until next week, but a full clip of the ‘Red Solo Cup‘ cover has already hit the web. When an old McKinley High School regular (played by Chord Overstreet) returns in the ‘Hold On to Sixteen’ episode, a party ensues, and the red party cups get passed around like candy — filled with sparkling cider, of course.
Following a successful throat surgery, Keith Urban will once again find his voice — or more specifically, ‘The Voice.’ As it was rumored, the Down Under native will join the Australian version of the hit TV show ‘The Voice’ next year.
Poor Jake Owen. He can’t help it that beautiful women, especially drunk ones, throw themselves at him — but easy hookups are just not his style. In his new ‘Alone With You’ video, Owen speaks his mind and talks from the heart because the track he’s been running on has got him singing the blues.
