Toss back those red solo cups, as Toby Keith has signed on to host the 2012 CMT Music Awards, which will air Wednesday, June 6 at 8PM ET on CMT and at CMT.com. The country superstar will be joined by actress Kristen Bell, who will co-host alongside him. We’re beyond excited to see how well Keith and Bell play off one another.
Congratulations are in order for Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum and Blake Shelton. All three country acts have been nominated for 2012 Teen Choice Awards outside of their genre. Swift was nominated in the Choice Female Artist category, where she is up against pop divas like Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Rihanna. Lady A received a nod in the Choice Music Group category, where they will do battle with the likes of LMFAO and the Wanted, among others.
Taylor Swift is known for her confessional songs regarding her romantic relationships, but she is also able to celebrate other interpersonal connections through a different artform. The singer has released a new line of Mother’s Day cards via American Greetings, which feature her imagery of her tunes, like ‘Stay Beautiful’ and ‘The Best Day,’ the latter of which she penned for her own mom, Andrea.
Carrie Underwood was the winner of ‘American Idol‘ way back in Season 4, but she has progressed into a full-blown, legitimate country superstar in the years since she nabbed that crown. It’s pretty much a footnote of her career at this point. But that didn’t stop the ‘Good Girl’ from returning to her former stomping grounds to perform on Thursday night, especially since her new album ‘Blown Away’ dropped earlier this week.
Skylar Laine made it to the ‘American Idol‘ Top 5 and for tonight’s episode (May 2), she had to sing a song by a ’60s artist and a song by a Britpop act. The spunky songstress from Mississippi is peaking when it matters and she could very well end up being the Season 11 winner.
Sorry ladies, but Jake Owen is now officially off the market. The country singer proposed to his girlfriend Lacey Buchanan Saturday night (April 7) while performing at his annual charity event in his Vero Beach, Fla. hometown.
Scotty McCreery is a legitimate country superstar at the tender age of 18. He won Season 10 of ‘American Idol’ in 2011 and was just awarded a platinum plaque for ‘Clear as Day,’ which celebrates a million copies sold. He’s performed on several late night TV shows and has embarked on major tours. But underneath it all, he’s still a country boy at heart who plans to further his education. He confirmed to CMT Radio (thanks, mjsbigblog) that while he was accepted to all four colleges that he applied to, he will be attending North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
Those charitable chaps in Rascal Flatts are gearing up for the release of ‘Changed,’ but in the meantime, they spent this past weekend helping to raise nearly $10 million for a charitable cause. That’s hardly chump change.
Blake Shelton is a busy man, but he’s busting his butt now, releasing albums, touring and appearing on ‘The Voice’ so — as he puts it — he and his wife Miranda Lambert can “relax and not have to tour until we’re on our walkers.” Clearly, Shelton and Lambert plan to enjoy their twilight years by taking gigs and socking away cash now so they don’t have to stumble on stage when they are past their prime… although it is hard to imagine their talents aging or expiring.
