When we first met ‘American Idol‘ Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery just under a year ago, he sang Josh Turner‘s ‘Your Man’ a capella for the judges and was upstreamed to the next round. McCreery has not concealed the fact that he admires Turner and that he ultimately hopes to emulate Turner’s career. Even though Turner supports McCreery as he continues to evolve into a country superstar in his own right, he doesn’t return the admiration for McCreery’s on-the-go lifestyle right now.
It feels like only yesterday that Blake Shelton‘s charge Dia Frampton was the runner up on the debut season of ‘The Voice.’ Well, season two is upon us, and Shelton is already raring to go and plotting his methods for another round. Shelton revealed that he will retain last season’s strategy of picking the singers with the most unique and different voices for his team. Obviously, Shelton has no interest in cultivating a poker face during the audition round.
Alan Jackson was the subject of last night’s ‘Backstory’ on GAC, and the singer’s relationship with wife Denise was a focal point of the episode. Alan and Denise have been married since 1979, so their relationship factors heavily in his career and his music. The duo endured their fair share of ups and downs since that fateful meeting at a Dairy Queen, but through it all, they remain stronger than ever.

Mindy McCready continues to speak to the press about her recent actions, where she took her son Zander, 5, from her mother and step-father’s Florida home. The grandparents have custody of the boy, but McCready claims she had good reason to yank her son from his living situation.
If anyone understands exactly how eliminated ‘X Factor‘ contestant Rachel Crow feels about finishing just short of your reality TV singing competition goals, it’s Lauren Alaina. A mere six months ago, Alaina heard Scotty McCreery‘s name announced instead of hers during the ‘American Idol’ finals. While Crow placed fifth in her competition, she, like Alaina, was an early favorite, loved by fans and judges alike. But she didn’t ultimately notch the win.
Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles is off the market. The singer quietly married her longtime beau, entrepreneur Justin Miller, in a small ceremony in Tennessee over the weekend. Nettles and Miller have been dating for over two years.
It’s that time again, country fans! The 2012 season of ‘American Idol’ will kick off this January. It’ll be the show’s 11th season and let’s hope that this season follows the same trajectory as the last, when the final two contestants were country artists! Will Scotty McCreery‘s heir apparent make it to the top? Will we find our next Lauren Alaina? It’s certainly an exciting prospect, since country music dominated the show last season. That trend could very well continue into 2012.
