We’ve seen a good bit of Keith Urban lately, what with his recent No. 1 single ‘You Gonna Fly,’ his surprise induction into the Grand Ole Opry and his role as a celebrity coach on the Australian version of ‘The Voice.’ But one thing most of Urban’s fans might not know is that between all of the appearances, the singer is also hard at work on his next record.
Carrie Underwood is maybe one of the biggest country stars in the US, and now the ‘Good Girl’ singer is taking her voice, her live show and her upcoming record ‘Blown Away‘ across the pond so that she can conquer UK. Scheduled for her first-ever UK show June 21 at the Royal Albert Hall, Underwood is poised and ready to blow away some Brits and make some new fans.
Octogenarian George Jones has had quite the roller coaster of health news this year. The legendary singer was released from the hospital at the beginning of this month after being treated for an upper respiratory infection. At that point, he planned on jumping back into his tour, but then two weeks ago he had to follow doctor’s orders to postpone a set of weekend shows. Still, the ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’ singer was determined to jump right back in, assuring his fans that he was on the mend and ready to rock.
The four celebrity judges for ABC’s upcoming show ‘Duets‘ — Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles, Kelly Clarkson, Lionel Richie and Robin Thicke — have all been scouring the country for dueting partners that they think can stand the heat of the spotlight. And while Kelly Clarkson recently pulled a couple of her top picks on stage with her at a San Diego show, we got a glimpse of a couple videos shot at Nettles’ auditions in Las Vegas.
This week, the Band Perry are hanging out in New Orleans, Louisiana shooting their music video for their single ‘Postcard From Paris,’ and from the looks of a photo they posted to Twitter, they seem to be enjoying themselves.
The last time Miranda Lambert and Ashton Kutcher came face to face, Kutcher was presenting Lambert with the coveted ACM Award for Female Vocalist of the Year. But the ‘Two and a Half Men’ funny guy behaved in such a way that seemed to tick off the sassy starlet just a bit. Dressed in over-the-top country garb — a cowboy hat and a rather gaudy red blazer — Kutcher sang a few bars of George Strait‘s ‘I Cross My Heart,’ later causing Lambert to question the 34-year-old actor’s intentions.
The last time Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw hit the road together was more than 10 years ago in the early 2000s, with McGraw primarily headlining. Now, the two country stars who have seen their careers shoot them into international stardom are at it again, gearing up for their 2012 Brothers of the Sun Tour, which kicks off in Tampa, Fla. on June 2 and runs for 19 days.
Carrie Underwood‘s fourth studio album ‘Blown Away’ isn’t set to hit store shelves until May 1, but this week fans can enjoy an early listen of the record — in full — before it makes its official debut. The stream is available via iTunes, and there Carrie fanatics can also pre-order the record.
Zac Brown Band have been crazy busy this year, as they’ve taken the stages of arenas across the country and awards shows alike. Currently up for Top Country Artist at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, ZBB are also in the running for Group Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards. Plus, CMTT is reporting that they have a source that knows when the band’s next album is supposedly going to hit shelves.
Young country star Scotty McCreery has been pitching for his hometown Garner High School Trojans this season after taking a break during the post-’Idol’ whirlwind. The kid with the incredible voice and equally intimidating arm pitched his first game of the season on March 10 and started as pitcher for his second varsity game last Thursday. However, the ‘Trouble With Girls’ singer faced a scary moment when a ball came back and hit him just where a singer never wants to be hit — the throat.
We previously reported that former country child protege Billy Gilman had united 18 of the biggest names in country music to sing on his song ‘The Choice.’ With the song, Gilman is teaming up with the organization Soles4Souls to bring shoes to kids across the globe who don’t have any. The artists are donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the song’s digital downloads directly to the cause. This week, Gillman released a music video to further the reach of the charitable single.
This week, Reba McEntire technically became the second female country artist to ever sell more than 30 million albums. The first woman to do this was Shania Twain, who is currently considered the top-selling female country artist of all time with 34,175,000 albums sold, according to Perez Hilton.
