A Marion Superior Court Judge scheduled a hearing for this Friday (March 23) at the request of Mid-America Sound Corp., the company that built the roof and rigging that held the lights and sound equipment which collapsed in the Aug. 13 Indiana State Fair tragedy. The hearing will determine whether or not the judge will grant Mid-America’s request that Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, as well as a representative from their ownership company, Lucky Star, Inc., be forced to appear in court to give depositions about the incident.
When Eric Church is onstage, he feels pretty cool performing to thousands of fans screaming his name. When he’s offstage, it’s someone else screaming his name — and that’s the best thing in the world. Sure, Church has the look, the voice and the fans, but he’s also got one fairly new responsibility: being a dad to almost 5-month-old Boone McCoy.
When Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush saw the rigging of the giant stage at the Indiana State Fair come crashing tragically around them last summer, they likely felt thankful to be alive first, and second, a horrible grief at the whole situation. What they couldn’t possibly have anticipated in that moment was the onslaught of court cases and finger pointing and legalities that would inevitably ensue.
Three weeks ago, we reported that Lady Antebellum had opened up a competition, agreeing to come perform for 45 minutes at the prom of the high school who submitted the best video via their website. They invited YouTube submissions and promised to review them and choose their favorite, selecting that school as the lucky high school who got to have an ‘Own the Night’-themed prom, complete with a Lady A concert.
This morning (March 20), Keith Urbantweeted about a video that he ran across on YouTube that impacted him. Interestingly enough, it was a cover of one of his songs — done entirely by a 10-year-old boy named Carson Lueders. With his acoustic guitar in tow and his brother Jackson keeping a steady beat behind him on a drum kit, Lueders performed Urban’s ‘For You’ from the Navy SEALs film ‘Act of Valor.’
Saturday night (March 17) Miranda Lambert and her touring crew hit Broomfield, Colo.’s 1st Bank Event Center. During her show, Lambert invited another powerful female vocalist — and fellow ‘The Voice‘ mentor — to take the stage with her. Surprising the audience, Kelly Clarkson emerged and offered up her recent single ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ from her fifth studio album, 2011′s ‘Stronger,’ as well as Lambert’s own ‘Gunpowder and Lead’ with the help of the blonde country starlet herself.
While the members of Zac Brown Band have tasted commercial success in the past few years, they’ve also each experienced something else entirely new: parenthood. Perhaps this is partially what drew the band’s guitarist Coy Bowles to pen his first children’s book, “Amy Giggles: Laugh Out Loud.” Speaking on HLN yesterday morning (March 16), Bowles elaborated on the origins of the anti-bullying book, as well as his hopes for its future.
Prom season is quickly approaching, and you know what that means. Grab your favorite country star and get him to help you snag a date for the dance! Well, it worked for one Owensboro Ky. teen and Jake Owen.
It turns out that Eric Church‘s wildly successful Blood Sweat and Beers Tour is quite appropriately named, as the singer has encountered some roadblocks along the way that just might make a grown man want to cry — or at least reach for a cold one. Church, who has seen tons of his tour dates sell out before his eyes, filed a lawsuit Tuesday (March 13) to stop vendors who are illegally manufacturing and selling merchandise bearing his name and likeness.
At the beginning of December, LeAnn Rimes was already five songs into her upcoming spring 2012 traditional country record. Though she just released ‘Lady & Gentlemen’ in September 2011, Rimes is taking a different angle with this new project, aiming for the simplified more stripped-down sound of traditional — and original — country tunes. Rimes will release the record this spring with her longtime label Curb Records. In a series of tweets this week, she offered fans behind-the-curtain peak at her time in the studio.
If you listen to country radio at all, and we know you do, you know to watch this video clip at your own risk. Toby Keith performed his can’t-ever-get-it-out-of-your-head catchy hit ‘Red Solo Cup’ today on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ and the audience seemed to love the creative drinking anthem. Keith even cut the music right in the middle of the song to really play up the part where he proclaims that the cup is more like a friend to him than anything.
Lee Brice doesn’t look anything like Kathie Lee Gifford, but the country singer is going to make his hosting debut filling in for Gifford on the ‘Today’ show alongside show host Hoda Kotb on Tuesday, March 20. Brice will co-host the fourth hour of the show with Kotb, as Gifford has the week off. While Brice may have some mad hosting skills (we’ll have to see), it’s likely he landed this spot because Kotb has been a fan of his since she put his 2010 hit ‘Love Like Crazy’ on her iHoda Playlist.
