This Memorial Day, Tim McGraw gave military members and veterans a real treat when he put on a military-only live performance at Manhattan’s Beacon Theater. The venue was packed to the hilt with men and women in uniform, but that doesn’t mean that soldiers around the world had to miss out. Thanks to a partnership between the United Service Organization and Chase, the concert streamed live via YouTube to bases all over the country.
When country music fanatics pour into Nashville for CMA Fest next week, they’ll have the opportunity to get their fill of Taylor Swift, too. Starting June 6, an exhibit devoted entirely to the award-winning country songstress will be on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
After a 30-year relationship (including a 20-year marriage), Randy Travis and his ex-wife (and former manager) Elizabeth Travis haven’t exactly gone through an amicable divorce. Just days ago, the country legend filed a lawsuit against his former love, claiming that she breached her management contract and ruined his career by blabbing personal details about him. According to TMZ, Travis hasn’t given specific details about what personal details his ex is using against him — but it sounds pretty bad.
Before Josh Abbott Band‘s third album, ‘Small Town Family Dream’ ever reached country music airwaves, the band made a big splash when they released ‘Touch’ — the first single off of the album. The Texas natives also created an emotionally-charged video to help promote the song, and it’s sure to be one which tugs at your heart strings.
Miranda Lambert‘s dog rescuing habit is getting out of control. It’s obvious that the ‘Over You’ hitmaker has a soft heart for all things furry, but we’re wondering how many dogs she can take care of — or at least, where Blake Shelton will draw the line. For her latest rescue effort, the sweet songstress rescued an adorable tan puppy from a ditch. It’s hard to blame her for picking up this adorable girl, though, as she would be too cute for anyone to pass up!
Country music stars are taking ‘The Bachelorette’ by storm! On this week’s episode of the show, Dolly Parton lends her theme park, Dollywood, to the bachelorette and her date. The country star even makes an appearance in the episode, which will also include Luke Bryan.
A few weeks ago, Lady Antebellum surprised one of their biggest fans by appearing unexpectedly on the ‘Anderson’ show and singing a few acapella lines of ‘Need You Now.’ But last night (May 22) in Augusta Ga., the tables were turned with the high school marching band from Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley’s alma mater showed up to blow Lady A away.
According to a statement from George Jones‘ publicist, the legendary country singer was admitted to a hospital in Nashville Monday afternoon (May 21). It hasn’t been a banner year for Jones, who has battled several upper respiratory issues this spring.
Taylor Swift has been getting so many requests from sick, hurt or just plain down-trodden fans these days that it’s hard to keep up. And while she can’t go to every high school prom or give every devoted fan an autograph, the ‘Safe and Sound’ hitmaker does what she can to give back to her superfans. That’s why she responded to a Marine’s request to contact the family of fallen soldier Sergeant Wade Wilson.
Not too long ago, we reported that ABC staked a claim in Nashville to film the pilot for a new TV drama by the same name. Starring Connie Britton (the mainstay guidance counselor and coach’s wife on ‘Friday Night Lights’), ‘Heroes’ beauty Hayden Panettiere and a handful of other experienced stars, this show about the behind-the-scenes drama in country music is sure to be a hit. Just check out the ‘Nashville’ trailer (below) and you’ll understand why.
It hasn’t been long since Season 2 of ‘The Voice‘ ended, with Team Blake Shelton member Jermaine Paul taking home the crown. But already, NBC is making plans for the next season of the hit singing competition, and network chief Bob Greenblatt has announced that the show will now air twice a year.
Finally, the star-studded CMT Music Awards lineup is ready for your eyes! And from the looks of it, this year CMT could be more about the live talent than they will be about actually giving out awards.
