Faith Hill to Perform New Song, ‘Come Home,’ at CMA Awards

For Faith Hill fans, it’s been a long four-year wait for new material. Her most recent recordings are a pair of songs (‘Lost’ and ‘Red Umbrella’) she included with her 2007 compilation ‘The Hits.’

Will Scotty McCreery’s ‘Clear as Day’ Top the Charts?

Scotty McCreery is poised to claim the Number One spot when his first full-length effort ‘Clear as Day’ makes its debut on the charts next week. But will he actually pull it off?

Will Tim McGraw Star in Clint Eastwood’s ‘A Star Is Born’? [VIDEO]

Clint Eastwood isn’t exactly known for romances, either as an actor or as a director, so when word surfaced that he was planning to helm a remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ with Tim McGraw as a possible star, people naturally wanted to know more. We’ve heard plenty of the rumors as well, including the reported involvement (and subsequent un-involvement) of Beyoncé Knowles and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Little has been made official, however, so you can hardly blame the hosts of NBC’s ‘Today’ for trying to pry the scoop from McGraw during an interview.
