This week, Reba McEntire technically became the second female country artist to ever sell more than 30 million albums. The first woman to do this was Shania Twain, who is currently considered the top-selling female country artist of all time with 34,175,000 albums sold, according to Perez Hilton.
We’ve seen Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw getting their inner rock star on in live performances of their current up-beat single ‘Feel Like a Rock Star,’ whether at the ACM Awards or on talk shows like ‘Ellen.’ But the one thing no one has yet seen is a music video for the hit single, which is currently sitting at No. 13 on Billboard’s Country Songs chart.
In February, we reported that legendary country outlaw Waylon Jennings‘ family had determined to celebrate the singer’s life and career with a new album of primarily unreleased material. This week, the release date and track listing of ‘Goin’ Down Rockin’: The Last Recordings’ was finally announced. Due out September 11, 2012, the record will feature 12 songs, 11 of which Jennings wrote.
When we watched Jake Owen propose to now fiancee Lacey Buchanan spontaneously at a show in Vero Beach, Fla., the one little missing detail was the ring. Since Owen made a bit of a spur-of-the-moment decision to seal the deal with Buchanan in front of his hometown audience on April 7, he hadn’t quite had the time to go out and pick out the perfect rock. Now that he and his bride to be have had a few days to let the excitement settle and make some decisions, Owen is opening up and dishing on the details of the ring.
Just a few weeks ago, country legend George Jones was released from the hospital after a six-day stay for an upper respiratory infection. While Jones seemed to be on the mend at the time, and planned to dive back into his tour schedule starting April 20, the ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ legend just announced on his website that he’s postponing his shows this weekend — April 20 and 21 — due to an ongoing recovery.
The focus of the Sugarland lawsuit concerning the August stage collapse at the duo’s Indiana State Fair show is now turned away from the band and instead pointed at their tour manager, Hellen Rollens — the very woman credited with saving the lives of every band member that tragic day.
As we reported earlier, Garth Brooks is headed up to Canada later this year to take part in the Calgary Stampede music festival, which will last from July 6 to July 15. Brooks will be bringing his show to the Calgary audience on July 12, and no sooner had tickets for his show gone on sale Saturday than they were gone. In just 58 seconds, according to the Calgary Herald, every single one of the 15,322 tickets for Brooks’ show had been purchased.
His fans had long been waiting for it, and Eric Church finally premiered his ‘Springsteen’ music video on Friday, April 13. A direct tribute to the Boss, Church wears a vintage American flag around his neck and sports his aviator sunglasses in several of the shots as well.
Carrie Underwood took the April/May 2012 cover of Vegas magazine, and this week she’s staring back at us from the front of Billboard’s April 21 issue. Looking striking in black with black lace gloves, Underwood is more intentionally disheveled than we usually see her, with her blonde locks blowing freely as the starlet holds them back. The cover story bears the title ‘Carrie Underwood Plays On.’
While Garth Brooks has been enjoying his time performing in Las Vegas, the country legend is heading north to Canada to be a part of the Calgary Stampede’s 10-day music festival this July.
