The 2012 ACM Awards are shaping up to be quite an entertaining evening, with new country stars being added to the celebrity lineup of performers each day. That’s in addition to a live onstage wedding, and now, a list of country talents set to bring special duets to the ACM stage. The Academy announced today (March 29) the lineup of special collaborations that are slated to be a part of country music’s “party of the year.”
The verdict is in for People Country’s hottest guy, and the top cowboy stud of the year just so happens to be now widely-loved ‘The Voice‘ celebrity coach and country star Blake Shelton. The Oklahoma native is (not surprisingly) quite “aww shucks” about the whole thing, telling the magazine, ”I think it’s funny because there is nothing about me, if I was a girl, that I would think is sexy” (quotes via the Boot). But country ladies everywhere seem to disagree.
Toby Keith took a moment to appear on Chelsea Handler’s show ‘Chelsea Lately’ Tuesday night (March 27) to talk to the comedic host about his career, enjoy a shot of tequila and explain why he’s not a conservative Republican, as many might assume. After admitting that she actually had Keith confused with Trace Adkins until she saw him and realized it wasn’t Adkins, Handler jumped in her matter-of-fact, straight-faced way from topic to topic — after first enjoying a shot of the restaurant owner’s own brand of Mezcal, which he calls Wild Shot.
It’s the stuff tabloids are made of — the details fans love to read and haters love to hate on. E! News recently reported that the paparazzi caught country star LeAnn Rimes laying a kiss on one of her best gal pals in the bright sunshine. But perhaps the most interesting element of the story is that Rimes’ husband, 38-year-old Eddie Cibrian, was right there snapping photos along with the celebrity photographers.
Steel Magnolia had a rough year last year — to say the least. With rumors of a potential split circulating, the duo’s fans were left wondering what was going to happen to the ‘Keep On Lovin’ You’ singers in 2012, both professionally and personally, since the two had set a tentative July 2012 wedding date. And while the duo aren’t giving any details of the status of their relationship, Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey assure fans that they’re back in the studio working on new music and preparing for their upcoming ACM Experience appearance.
You may know that Kenny Chesney makes an appearance with a host of country stars on Lionel Richie’s ‘Tuskegee‘ new country duets record, but do you know exactly how the ‘You and Tequila’ singer actually landed his spot on the album? While the two stars are good friends who each seem to really respect one another’s work, this collaboration actually began with a drunk dial.
While you expect a great variety of performances at the ACM Awards, there’s one special occurrence you’d never anticipate seeing on the ACM stage: a wedding. Well, prepare to have your expectations blown away this year! Martina McBride and Train frontman Pat Monahan are due to perform McBride’s latest single ‘Marry Me‘ while a couple actually gets married on stage.
CBS’ afternoon talk show ‘The Talk’ is getting a bit of a country makeover — but only for one week. In honor of the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards, the show, which stars hosts Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Leah Remini and Sheryl Underwood, is going country. The hosts will invite a cast of celebrity country acts to come perform, co-host and, well, talk with them during the week leading up to the 47th Annual ACM Awards.
If there’s one thing ‘American Idol‘ seems to love as much as discovering the newest talent, it’s inviting their alums back for a moment in the spotlight. It’s always so incredible to how performers who were once anxious hopefuls develop into such poised, self-assured stars in no time. Next week, the past ‘Idol’ winner who will be coming back to show off how he’s changed in a year is Scotty McCreery, and he’ll be joined by rap princess Nicki Minaj.
Could it be true? On Thursday, it was reported that Universal is kicking around the idea of filming a sequel to the box office hit Dr. Seuss film ‘The Lorax,’ which stars Taylor Swift and Zac Efron. While this may or may not simply be a rumor, it seems Universal would have to be crazy not to at least consider the idea with as well as the first movie is doing.
An attorney in White Plains, N.Y. and another man are facing accusations that they pretended to represent Taylor Swift and then swindled $225,000 from a Los Angeles concert investor. The two men, attorney Emmanuel “Kojo” Bentil and Derrick “Suits” Robinson supposedly stole the money by ripping off Kachik Mouradian, the chief executive officer of Omega Alpha Enterprises, according to LoHud.com.
