Trisha Yearwood will be joining forces with other artists from a variety of genres to perform in the benefit show, A Celebration of Paul Newman’s Dream, on April 2. In the company of fellow performers Paul Simon and Josh Groban, among others, Yearwood will take the stage of New York City’s Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center for the show that will benefit Paul Newman’s Association of Hole in the Wall Camps.
The list of performers for the 2012 ACM Awards continues to grow, with some of the biggest names in country being tacked on as entertainment as the 47th annual event draws nearer. The Academy of Country Music just announced that Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood and Sara Evans are the newest performers slated to make an appearance on the live telecast, which will air from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 1.
Yep, it’s true. If you were hoping this celebrity couple would hire you as their live-in laundress, your dreams have just been shattered. Blake Shelton, who is about as down-home country guy as they come, says he and wife Miranda Lambert will not be hiring someone anytime soon to do their dirty work — their dirty laundry, that is. But that doesn’t mean the ‘Honey Bee’ singer particularly enjoys the task. Hitting Twitter last month, Shelton conveyed how he really feels about the matter.
George Strait hasn’t been writing and releasing music since he was born, but if he had, and he had one No.1 hit every year of his life, he would be right where he is now. The 59-year-old country king is celebrating his astounding 59th No. 1 hit with ‘Love’s Gonna Make It Alright’ from his September 2011 Grammy-nominated record, ‘Here for a Good Time.’
Three weeks ago, we reported that Lady Antebellum had opened up a competition, agreeing to come perform for 45 minutes at the prom of the high school who submitted the best video via their website. They invited YouTube submissions and promised to review them and choose their favorite, selecting that school as the lucky high school who got to have an ‘Own the Night’-themed prom, complete with a Lady A concert.
A Marion Superior Court Judge scheduled a hearing for this Friday (March 23) at the request of Mid-America Sound Corp., the company that built the roof and rigging that held the lights and sound equipment which collapsed in the Aug. 13 Indiana State Fair tragedy. The hearing will determine whether or not the judge will grant Mid-America’s request that Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, as well as a representative from their ownership company, Lucky Star, Inc., be forced to appear in court to give depositions about the incident.
When Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush saw the rigging of the giant stage at the Indiana State Fair come crashing tragically around them last summer, they likely felt thankful to be alive first, and second, a horrible grief at the whole situation. What they couldn’t possibly have anticipated in that moment was the onslaught of court cases and finger pointing and legalities that would inevitably ensue.
When Eric Church is onstage, he feels pretty cool performing to thousands of fans screaming his name. When he’s offstage, it’s someone else screaming his name — and that’s the best thing in the world. Sure, Church has the look, the voice and the fans, but he’s also got one fairly new responsibility: being a dad to almost 5-month-old Boone McCoy.
Everyone’s been talking about ‘The Hunger Games’ for months, and now fans everywhere are just days away from the premiere of the post-apocalyptic film based on Suzanne Collins’ bestselling book. Even so, those who absolutely can’t wait until Friday can hold themselves over with the film’s soundtrack, which drops today (March 20). Featuring artists like Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and the Civil Wars, the soundtrack is a star-studded musical endeavor with a country tinge, set to perfectly fit the film.
This morning (March 20), Keith Urbantweeted about a video that he ran across on YouTube that impacted him. Interestingly enough, it was a cover of one of his songs — done entirely by a 10-year-old boy named Carson Lueders. With his acoustic guitar in tow and his brother Jackson keeping a steady beat behind him on a drum kit, Lueders performed Urban’s ‘For You’ from the Navy SEALs film ‘Act of Valor.’
While we often check out our friends’ Spotify playlists to see what they’re spinning and who they’re into at any given moment, we don’t really think to check the playlist posted by, say, a national politician. Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is doing a good bit of traveling of late, and the former Massachusetts governor recently tweeted about what he’s been listening to during his cross-country road trips.
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill kicked off their joint Australian tour this week, and tonight they’re giving a performance at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. While the two country celebs will do their fair share of getting ready for the event, they’re not neglecting their other full-time jobs either: being parents to daughters Gracie, Maggie and Audrey.
