Today (March 6), the Country Music Association announced that Garth Brooks will become one of the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame, along with keyboardist Hargus “Pigg” Robbins and singer Connie Smith. It comes as no surprise, of course, that this once-in-a-lifetime honor is being bestowed upon the record-setting, hit-spreading country king.
The big country music event slated for April is the telecast of the Academy of Country Music Awards, but now there’s another significant televised event happening soon after. On April 13, CBS will be featuring ‘ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert,’ which will include a variety of country duets featuring Lionel Richie and some of the top stars from ACMs, which air on April 1.
Kristin Chenoweth has the trifecta of talents: She can act on film, she can act onstage, and boy can the girl sing. Now, the Emmy and Tony winner, who was also inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, is gearing up for a 19-city tour to support her September 2011 country album, ‘Some Lessons Learned.’ The tour will kick off May 9 at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre and will wrap June 24 in Chenoweth’s hometown of Broken Arrow, Okla.
Perhaps it was Taylor Swift‘s recent ‘Vogue’ cover that inspired the editors of the Australian edition of Harper’s Bazaar to put the glamorous ‘it girl’ on the front of their April issue. Whatever the inspiration, Swift can be seen on the cover in a black and gold shimmering Gucci dress — priced at $10,000 — that nods to the ’80s with its bold, almost geometric pattern, but is more reminiscent of a swanky flapper dress from the ’20s.
Suspicion is running high on Brad Paisley‘s tour with Scotty McCreery and the Band Perry. After McCreery pranked Paisley last Saturday night (Feb. 25) at their Springfield, Mo. show, the young singer started watching his back more than normal. And, with only today and tomorrow (March 3) left in their run together, McCreery must just be itching to see if Paisley’s going to retaliate.
Dolly Parton is the muse in a new documentary that’s set to debut at the 2012 Nashville Film Festival, which runs the week of April 19-26. Though the appropriately titled ‘Hollywood to Dollywood’ might sound like a documentary about the Queen of Country Music herself, it actually chronicles the adventures of two identical twin brothers, Gary and Larry Lane, who are hoping to get Parton to star in their screenplay ‘Full Circle.’
Miranda Lambert confirmed that she’s working on a television series that’s loosely based on her childhood in Texas. In a recent interview with Dan Van from Albright & O’Malley, the country gal talked more about the the show, which is rumored to be about a boy and a girl — likely inspired by Lambert and her brother — who help their private investigator parents solve crimes.
Brad Paisley is no stranger to taking the stage in front of a giant audience, but this week he took a bit of a leap and set foot in front of a totally different kind of audience — the kind attending a Broadway show.
February 26 would have been Johnny Cash‘s 80th birthday, and while the country legend is no longer here to celebrate the occasion with his fans, those fans have come up with more than one way to honor his memory. As a part of the legendary Austin City Limits TV show, country stars Kenny Chesney, Ronnie Dunn, Kris Kristofferson, Jamey Johnson and more will be performing at Austin’s Moody Theatre to pay tribute with the ‘We Walk The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash’ concert.
Carrie Underwood took the stage Tuesday night at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, where she brought the house down at the Nordstrom Symphony Fashion Show. The event, which was expected to raise more than $100,000 for arts education for students across middle Tennessee, showcased a fashion show of Oscar de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection followed by a performance from the country starlet.
Tuesday night, Kenny Chesney took the stage on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ for the first time ever, but rather than bringing one of his own hits, he performed Bruce Springsteen‘s ‘I’m on Fire.’ The cover was part of a week-long tribute to the Boss in honor of his forthcoming record ‘Wrecking Ball,’ which drops March 6.
