The Band Perry came on stage at the 2012 CMT Music Awards tonight before their performance to present the award for USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year. Before they announced the big winner, Neil Perry gave viewers a taste of his vocals when he sang the chorus of the Doors’ ‘Break on Through to the Other Side.’ Although all of the nominees have had a great year, one country singer stuck out — and the audience was quite happy with the winner.
When two of your favorite artists come together, the result is that the sum of their collaboration is greater than the individual parts. That’s what Jake Owen said when he took the stage with ‘Twilight’ star Kristen Greene to present the 2012 CMT Music Award for Best Collaborative Video of the Year.
Every since Billy Ray Cyrus had his heyday in country music in the 1990s, country fans have seen Miley Cyrus grow up right before their eyes. And now the pop princess about to take a major leap into adulthood: She’s getting married! The former Disney star-turned-singer Miley Cyrus is engaged, planning to tie the knot with Liam Hemsworth, her boyfriend of three years.
For 15 years, Tricia Van Auken has been carrying the same sign to every concert she attends. It reads: “Can I Come Sing w/ You?” — and believe it or not, it has actually worked! Ten months ago, Jake Owen invited Van Auken on stage during a performance at the New York State Fair. Then on Sunday night (June 3), Van Auken’s lucky sign worked again, when Lady Antebellum called her up to sing with them during a show in Canandaigua, N.Y.
This summer, plenty of country music fans will both remember and mourn the Indiana State Fair tragedy. In August of 2011, the fair stage collapsed before a Sugarland performance, killing seven people and injuring dozens more. Since the accident, Sugarland’s Kristian Bush and Jennifer Nettles have been wrapped up in depositions and legal proceedings for a trial that will determine who is responsible for the stage collapse.
The countdown to the 2012 CMT Music Awards is on! This Wednesday night (June 6), country music fanatics will get to see country’s top performers take the stage at the awards show. Plus, fans will also catch a glimpse of their favorite artists presenting awards to this year’s winners.
Unfortunately, the saying “all good things comes to an end” does include Lady Antebellum‘s wildly popular headlining Own the Night 2012 World Tour. The award-winning trio has announced the dates for the final leg of the tour, which wraps in Australia this October.
We’re sure that Luke Bryan is having a blast opening for Jason Aldean‘s My Kinda Party Tour this summer, but fans who are craving more live Luke Bryan will get their wish in 2013. The ‘Drunk on You’ singer is planning to headline his own tour next year.
It’s been almost two years since the Band Perry released their debut album. During that time, country music fans have flocked to Kimberly, Reid, and Neil Perry as they’ve toured the country promoting their songs. If you’ve been anxiously awaiting new tunes from the siblings, there’s good news in store: the popular trio is hard at work on their sophomore album.
We don’t know about you, but we’re definitely ‘blown away’ by Carrie Underwood‘s most recent album (yeah, we know that’s a bad joke). On a more serious note, though, Underwood’s latest album has topped Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart for four consecutive weeks. ‘Blown Away’ is the first album since 2010 to debut at No. 1 and hold that slot for so many weeks in a row.
Some of Toby Keith‘s ‘bad A’ patriotic songs can make him sound like a tough guy, but the truth is that the country star is always willing to donate time and money to help sick children and other people in need. For his latest act of generosity, the 9th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic helped raise $664,000 for OK Kids Korral, a facility that will provide comfortable housing for families of children with cancer.
Last week, the CMT Awards announced the beginnings of a performance lineup for the 2012 show. The original bill was already pretty stellar, as it includes big names like Carrie Underwood and Kenny Chesney on the roster. But the performance schedule got quite a bit sweeter when a few country icons and future country legends joined the ticket.
