Each week, the CMT show ‘CMT Top 20 Countdown‘ counts down the week’s Top 20 country music videos, interviewing artists in between and focusing on the best in current country. This week, Miranda Lambert‘s new video for her emotional single ‘Over You’ debuted on the show, and it broke a record by starting out at No.3 — the highest ranked video debut in the history of the program.
Lee Brice doesn’t look anything like Kathie Lee Gifford, but the country singer is going to make his hosting debut filling in for Gifford on the ‘Today’ show alongside show host Hoda Kotb on Tuesday, March 20. Brice will co-host the fourth hour of the show with Kotb, as Gifford has the week off. While Brice may have some mad hosting skills (we’ll have to see), it’s likely he landed this spot because Kotb has been a fan of his since she put his 2010 hit ‘Love Like Crazy’ on her iHoda Playlist.
Taylor Swift penned two songs for the soundtrack to the soon-to-be-blockbuster film ‘The Hunger Games,’ and the sweet blond starlet — who’s accustomed to writing from her own perspective — recently told Rolling Stone that it was nice to step out of her own mind for a change. ”It’s pretty intense writing about my own life, my own struggles,” she admitted. “It was almost like a vacation to get to write from someone else’s perspective.”
It turns out that Eric Church‘s wildly successful Blood Sweat and Beers Tour is quite appropriately named, as the singer has encountered some roadblocks along the way that just might make a grown man want to cry — or at least reach for a cold one. Church, who has seen tons of his tour dates sell out before his eyes, filed a lawsuit Tuesday (March 13) to stop vendors who are illegally manufacturing and selling merchandise bearing his name and likeness.
Jennifer Nettles was finally able to let out a little secret on her blog. The female half of the duo Sugarland was relieved to announce to her fans that she’s going to be one of the celebrity judges on the upcoming ABC show ‘Duets.’ Joining fellow judges Kelly Clarkson, Lionel Richie and Robin Thicke for the show, which will debut this summer, Nettles has to scour the country for two duet partners to join her on the show. In her blog, she dished a bit on what she’ll be looking for in a partner.
In the wake of the March 2 storms that resulted in a spinoff of destructive tornadoes, artists in the country music community are doing what they can to help people get back into their homes and back on their feet. For her part, Miranda Lambert just announced that she’ll be donating 100 percent of the proceeds from remaining ticket sales of her Louisville, Ky. concert to the American Red Cross.
Jason Aldean will be premiering the new video for his single ‘Fly Over States’ exclusively on CMT Friday, March 16 at 10:30AM ET.

At the beginning of this year, the buzz was that engaged Steel Magnolia partners Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones were parting ways professionally and potentially in their relationship as well. But now, the country duo — who are currently nominated for ACM Vocal Duo of the Year — are slated to play the ACM Experience, which will be held March 30-April 1 in Las Vegas. And this announcement seems to have put rumors to rest… for a little while.
The Academy of Country Music and Dick Clark Productions just unrolled a new lineup of performers today for the 2012 ACM Fan Jam.
