Blake Shelton and his touring crew took their show to Key Arena in Seattle, Wash. this weekend. And while Shelton has had a few guests with him on this Well Lit & Amplified Tour — he’s traveling with ‘The Voice‘ finalist Dia Frampton and Justin Moore — Friday night (March 9) he invited another famous country star onto the stage with him: his wife.
It’s nothing new to hear of a country star bringing a special guest onstage to help with a song — in fact, it happens all the time. But sometimes said stars pull adorable little girls out of the audience to help them finish out their set at the Opry, and that’s an entirely different story. At his sold-out Grand Ole Opry show on Friday (March 9), Keith Urban did just that, adding a giant dose of adorable to the end of his performance.
Today, the Academy of Country Music announced an additional star-studded lineup of performers for the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which will take place the evening of Sunday, April 1. Included in the newly-unrolled cast of country greats are Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Chris Young, the Band Perry and Rascal Flatts. Arguably one of the biggest nights in country music, second only to the CMAs, the awards show will be broadcast live from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand.
Trace Adkins has made his share of video and television appearances. The ‘You’re Gonna Miss This’ singer recently said that he’d like to costar in a film with fellow country talent Blake Shelton. And while we haven’t yet had the opportunity of seeing Shelton on the big screen, the Boot just released a new clip of the most recent Trace Adkins film, ‘Wyatt Earp’s Revenge,’ which you can view below.
In 2006, Chris Young was just another contestant on ‘Nashville Star.’ Later that year, he was just the kid releasing a debut album in hopes that people would pick it up and give it a spin. In 2009, he was the guy dropping his second studio album with RCA Records, and after that, he became the country star who has been watching his songs claim the No.1 spot on the Billboard charts — over and over again.
To celebrate what would have been Johnny Cash’s 80th birthday (Feb. 26), a host of country stars are banding together to bring a great tribute show to the legendary Austin City Limits TV show. The artists will be performing live at Austin’s Moody Theatre with a special tribute show titled ‘We Walk The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash.’ Organizers of the show just announced today that the two newest additions to the already impressive April 20 lineup are Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow.
Since November, Rodney Atkins has been embroiled in a bitter marital dispute that is in the process of ending in a divorce. The country singer was arrested Nov. 21 after his wife called 911 accusing her husband of trying to smother her with a pillow, among other things. The ‘Take a Back Road’ singer was taken into custody and then released on a $2,500 bail and in February was acquitted from the charges.
Each week on the remaining episodes of ‘American Idol‘ Season 11, one unfortunate hopeful will have to leave the stage for good. Rather than making that moment more awkward with silence or a peppy pop song spinning in the background, ‘Idol’ commissioned last season’s winner Scotty McCreery to record the farewell song to make it a memorable moment. McCreery chose to do a cover of Tim McGraw‘s 1999 hit, ‘Please Remember Me.’
Taylor Swift is not one to hide her philanthropic heart or her concern for the well-being of children everywhere. The multi-Grammy award-winning 22-year-old has given generously of her time and money to work toward better early childhood education and to empower young children to have the resources to read. Now, there’s an internet campaign going on to raise awareness of the horrors of militant Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony, and Swift is in full support.
Though Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have become quite the ‘it couple’ in and beyond the realm of country music, the two agree that they’re not planning for kids anytime soon. In a recent interview with US Weekly, Shelton explained that while they will be ringing in their first anniversary in May, they’re content to put off that next step for just a little while longer.
Taylor Swift is the covergirl of the April issue of Australia’s Harper’s Bazaar, and this past weekend that timing seemed just right as Swift performed the 100th show of her Speak Now World Tour in the land Down Under. Kicking off her final leg of the tour, Swift took the stage Friday at Perth’s Burswood Dome for her 99th show and then rounded out her centennial Speak Now performance Sunday at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.
Aside from his multi-platinum country music career, you could say Trace Adkins has dabbled in the arts in a way. He wrote and released his own autobiographyin 2007, and he’s made appearance on several television shows as well. To top that, Adkins can be seen acting in a variety of films, including 2008′s ‘An American Carol’ and 2011′s ‘The Lincoln Lawyer.’
