Jeff Bridges Returns to Music with New Self-Titled Album [VIDEO]

Jeff Bridges has been singing, playing guitar, and writing songs for years — in fact, in the ’90s, he even went so far as to release an album, ‘Be Here Soon,’ on his own label, Ramp Records. But it wasn’t until he starred in 2009′s ‘Crazy Heart’ that Bridges really had a chance to explore his musical artistry on the big screen.

Now, in a case of life imitating art (or is it the other way around?), Bridges is returning to record store shelves with his self-titled debut for Blue Note Records.

Jerrod Niemann Is Hard At Work on His Next Album

It’s been a long road for budding country superstar Jerrod Niemann, from his years as a songwriter for artists like Garth Brooks and Neal McCoy, to his stint as an independent recording artist.

But all that work has paid off — his year-old debut, ‘Judge Jerrod and the Hung Jury,’ went to number one, and with his latest single, ‘One More Drinkin’ Song,’ he has three top 40 hits to his credit, including the number one ‘Lover, Lover.’ What’s next for Niemann?

"How Did Eric Church’s ‘Chief’ Album Land a #1 Debut?"

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.

Mash-ups, made from blending pieces of at least two songs into one new creation, have been a mainstay of club DJs for years, but they didn’t gain mainstream appeal until ‘Glee’ began featuring them regularly during the TV show’s musical numbers.

The ‘Glee’ mash-ups, including a Halloween-show mix of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ and the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s ‘Heads Will Roll,’ have inspired even country megastar Keith Urban.

It’s been awhile since Billy Dean released some new music — and even longer since he tasted the kind of chart success he enjoyed with his first few albums in the early ’90s — but he’s making plans to change all that.

Dean has partnered with the Naturipe Farms collective for a series of new recordings, starting with a digital EP that’s currently available on iTunes). He also has plans for a full album in the fall. It might sound like an unusual partnership, but country music and farming is a pretty natural fit — and Dean stands squarely behind the company’s mission to help promote the sale of locally grown produce.
