Taylor Swift‘s ‘Safe & Sound’ is the first song from ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, and the accompanying video features Swift walking in the barren woods, wearing a loose-fitting white dress. She’s ditched her signature glam ringlets and lipstick and looks like a Plain Jane as she navigates a lonely trail. It’s winter and there are no leaves on the trees. Swift is singing and looking around in apprehension as she walks through the desolate landscape on bare feet, no less. It’s easily one of Swift’s artsy-est videos of her career, and she doesn’t utilize much in the way of plot or props to effectively tell the story.
Johnny Cash, akathe Man in Black, was the king of infinite cool, and not exactly someone who would automatically come to mind when you think of lullabies or music with which to soothe babies. That is until the proud parents of 9-month-old twins Reece and Levi decided to use Cash as the soundtrack while their twins bounce around in their Jolly Jumpers.
Kelly Clarkson is indulging fan requests on her current tour, playing whatever covers her fans request in advance and want to hear. At her Austin, Texas stop, Clarkson went country, something she’s been hinting at doing with her own music. She covered Pistol Annies‘ ‘Hell on Heels,’ musing that the song was requested by multiple people — and likely because she was in Texas. Texans love their Miranda Lambert, who’s one third of the Pistol Annies. Clarkson is also a close friend of Lambert and a native Texan, like her blond pal, so it was the perfect cover song.
Much like former Democratic President Bill Clinton — who went on late night TV playing the sax — President Barack Obama is using music to connect with a potential pool of voters.

Country singer Justin Moore cops to watching plenty of NASCAR and ESPN, as well as hunting and fishing shows while camped out on his tour bus when on the road. One show you won’t catch him glued in front of the tube for
Who knew Taylor Swift had any interest in beatboxing? She shows off her attempt in the latest 30-second Grammys promo spot released, leading up to music’s biggest night, which takes place Sunday, Feb. 12.

The Super Bowl commercial blitz is upon us almost a week before the big game between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. With Elton John’s commercial already generating some chatter, country artists are also getting in on the Super Bowl spot fun.

Kellie Pickler‘s new album is called ’100 Proof,’ and she brought it to ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ both literally and figuratively.
