“This is the most excited I’ve been in a long time,” Love and Theft member Stephen Barker Liles told Taste of Country during a recent interview. “The fact that we’re over it all now and things are moving forward is a really good feeling.”
‘Stronger,’ her fifth full-length release, has a brand new October 25 release date — but fans won’t have to wait that long to hear new music from the original ‘American Idol’ winner. She’ll debut her new single, ‘Mr. Know It All,’ via a live broadcast from her website on August 30.
He might be known for breezy, devil-may-care songs like ‘No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem’ and ‘Summertime,’ but when it comes to business, Kenny Chesney takes things very seriously. In fact, as the New York Times discovered during a recent profile, he’s an extremely involved, hands-on boss.
Merle Haggard suffered a bit of a health scare over the weekend, when an illness forced him to cancel a show in Ft. Worth, Texas and sent him briefly to the hospital.
Fans of the 74-year-old country legend can rest easy, however, because he’s heading home to California, and although his spokesperson didn’t say what put him under the weather, the short length of Haggard’s hospital stay has to be taken as a good sign.
After experiencing the terror, confusion, and sadness of last Saturday night’s stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair, the members of Sugarland are understandably shaken up. And while their tour continues, the band’s thoughts and prayers remain with the victims and their families.
In a heartfelt open letter posted on their website, Sugarland addressed the incident, trying to put their feelings into words and explaining their plans to honor those who died while continuing to sort out the events that led to the collapse.
Jeff Bridges has been singing, playing guitar, and writing songs for years — in fact, in the ’90s, he even went so far as to release an album, ‘Be Here Soon,’ on his own label, Ramp Records. But it wasn’t until he starred in 2009′s ‘Crazy Heart’ that Bridges really had a chance to explore his musical artistry on the big screen.
His youthful tenor never seems to age, so it’s hard to believe Vince Gill has been making music for decades. In fact, he released the first of his 12 solo albums, ‘Turn Me Loose,’ way back in 1984.
Since then, Gill has charted more than 40 singles, sold more than 22 million records and won 20 Grammys. At this point, he’s running out of milestones — but there was still one left for him to celebrate on Saturday, when he marked 20 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Billy Currington is having a moment right now — he’s scored seven consecutive number one singles, and his latest hit, ‘Love Done Gone,’ is well on its way to making it eight. Clearly, people can’t get enough of hearing him on the radio.
