Your long wait is over, Lauren Alaina fans: the video for her first single, ‘Like My Mother Does,’ is finally here.
The clip premiered Monday and, like the song, it’s a sentimental affair, featuring scenes of Alaina reminiscing as she leafs through family photos — and finishing with a shot of the ‘American Idol’ runner-up and her real-life mom.
Nashville legend Marshall Grant, the last surviving member of Johnny Cash‘s original band, passed away on Sunday after suffering an aneurysm. He was 83 years old.
Grant’s bass playing helped anchor the Cash combo known as the ‘Tennessee Two,’ and was a signature part of his early sound. Just as importantly, Grant, in the picture above on the right, served as the band’s road manager, working with Cash from 1954-1980.
Since they started making music together way back in 1947, the Oak Ridge Boys have topped the country charts more than 15 times, won four CMAs and a Grammy, and sold millions of records — but one honor has eluded them.
With his first two albums, 2006′s ‘Sinners Like Me’ and 2009′s ‘Carolina,’ Eric Church enjoyed steadily, albeit modestly, increasing success — so you can imagine that a few industry eyebrows were raised when his latest release, ‘Chief,’ debuted at number one.
To celebrate Church’s first chart-topper, Billboard devoted a recent feature to analyzing his sales spike — and interviewing industry insiders who shared their theories about how it happened.
By the time she was 14, LeAnn Rimes had already recorded four albums — and the fourth, 1996′s ‘Blue,’ sold more than six million copies in the United States alone.
Rimes has come a long way since those early days — she’s now a 28-year-old married woman with 15 studio albums under her belt. And for her latest studio set, ‘Lady and Gentlemen,’ she took a brand new approach.
Parton has also personally reached out to Olivier Odom, the guest who was asked to turn her ‘Marriage Is So Gay’ shirt inside out when the park host determined that it violated Dollywood’s family-friendly dress code.
U2 leads the list, with a nearly $175 million gross, with the top five rounded out by Roger Waters ($114 million), Bon Jovi ($107 million), Lady Gaga ($72 million), and Usher ($70 million). And the year’s biggest country tours? Kenny Chesney (No. 9, $25 million) and the George Strait/Reba pairing (number 15, $17.5 million).
At this point, it’s pretty clear that Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill was dealing with a lot more than just heat exhaustion when he left the stage during the band’s show in Dallas last Friday — and that the band was thinking about more than the weather when it pulled the plug on its American tour.
Taylor Swift knows a thing or two about how to tell a ‘Love Story’ through song — and a few days ago, she helped play a role in a real-life marriage proposal.
When Taylor’s tour stopped in Detroit last February, she met up with WYCD DJ Jason ‘The 300 Pound Cowboy’ and his girlfriend, Kelli, and hit it off with the couple. As the night drew to a close, Taylor’s mother warned them, “Next time I see you two, you’d better be engaged!”
