Next year, Josh Turner will celebrate his first decade in country music, and he’ll do it with millions of albums sold, nine top 40 singles, a pile of CMA and Grammy Awards nominations, and membership in the Grand Ole Opry.
That’s not a bad way to spend 10 years doing what you love — and Turner won’t start resting on his laurels now. In fact, he’s already deep into his next album.
‘American Idol’ duo Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have been dogged by rumors of romance for months — to the point where their fans have given the alleged couple their own mashed-up nickname, McLaina.
Anyone hoping for a public confession of love can stop hoping, however. Although both of them have winked and played along with the rumors, both McCreery and Alaina have come out to officially lay them to rest.
With a little over a month to go before she releases her first album, ‘American Idol’ runner-up Lauren Alaina sounds like she’s bursting at the seams with excitement, eager for the world to hear the fruits of her labor in the studio.
She can’t share the music with everyone just yet, but she did give her fans a glimpse of the album. In an email that went out this week, Alaina revealed the artwork for her debut, titled ‘Wildflower.’
She scored a number one duet with Brad Paisley this year, but it’s been a little while since Carrie Underwood released any new music on her ow. After all, her last album, ‘Play On,’ came out way back in 2009.
Have you forgotten that Lady Antebellum‘s new album, ‘Own the Night,’ is scheduled to come out next week?
Yeah, we didn’t think so. But just in case you had — or you were looking for a couple more sneak peeks at one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year — the band has posted two more clips of songs from the album.
If you sat down and made a list of the things the internet loves, “lists” and “snark” would have to end up somewhere near the top — so you can hardly blame Rolling Stone for loading up on both with a recent feature dubbed ‘The Worst Songs of the ’90s.’
Country fans can take pride in their genre, which emerged from the countdown relatively unscathed, albeit with one significant, and hardly surprising, exception.
For his upcoming ‘Duets II’ project, Tony Bennett made sure to line up plenty of stars from the rock and pop world, including John Mayer, Lady Gaga, and Amy Winehouse — but he invited a few friends from the country charts, too.
These days, Chris Young is riding high with his fourth consecutive number one single, ‘Tomorrow,’ and a new hit album, ‘Neon.’ But life wasn’t always so rosy for the onetime ‘Nashville Star’ winner.
In fact, before Young released his first hit single, ‘Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song),’ he had to deal with the news that his father had been diagnosed with cancer. Though he’s healthy now, dealing with those highs and lows has helped keep Young grounded during the more glamorous moments of his career.
The original ‘Footloose’ soundtrack sold more than nine million copies, topped the Billboard charts, and spawned six top 40 singles — two of which went all the way to number one, earning Academy Award nominations in the process.
The remake has some big shoes to fill, needless to say, so you’ve got to give Blake Shelton credit for chutzpah: he covered Kenny Loggins’ chart-topping title track for the new soundtrack, and now you can hear it for yourself.
It’s an old maxim that you should write what you know, and Taylor Swift has taken those words to heart, earning a reputation as a songwriter who leans heavily on the events of her own life — particularly her love life — as grist for her music.
Of course, it isn’t as easy as just coming up with a few rhymes about some boy she likes — and during a recent YouTube chat, Swift delved into some of her songwriting methods, as well as dishing a little about what fans can expect to hear from her next album.
