Just a couple weeks after a string of deadly, tornado-laden storms ripped through the southeast, Rodney Atkins is going live on the radio station WRIL-The Big 106 to host a radio drive raising money for the storm victims. Atkins will especially be growing support for those communities that took the hardest hit in the March 2 storms – Harrogate, Tenn., West Liberty, Ky., and East Bernstadt, Ky.
It’s nothing new to hear of a country star bringing a special guest onstage to help with a song — in fact, it happens all the time. But sometimes said stars pull adorable little girls out of the audience to help them finish out their set at the Opry, and that’s an entirely different story. At his sold-out Grand Ole Opry show on Friday (March 9), Keith Urban did just that, adding a giant dose of adorable to the end of his performance.
In 2006, Chris Young was just another contestant on ‘Nashville Star.’ Later that year, he was just the kid releasing a debut album in hopes that people would pick it up and give it a spin. In 2009, he was the guy dropping his second studio album with RCA Records, and after that, he became the country star who has been watching his songs claim the No.1 spot on the Billboard charts — over and over again.
Billboard released their official ‘Music’s Top Money Makers 2012‘ list last week and sitting atop the celebrity-packed lineup was none other than country pop princess Taylor Swift. With a mind-boggling $35 million takeaway from 2011, Swift is sitting pretty just above some huge names — U2 came in second with $32 million — due primarily to her ‘Speak Now’ record and the accompanying world tour.
Earlier this week, Eric Church and his band set out to film a video for Church’s ‘Springsteen,’ the third single from his Grammy-nominated record, ‘Chief.’ The country hitmaker officially released the single at the beginning of this year, and now he’s working on the music video to accompany it. But for the filming, he didn’t block off Broadway in Nashville or rent out the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. In fact, according to CMTT, Church was spotted shooting the video in a neighborhood setting in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The Country Music Association just announced a few additions to the lineup for the 2012 CMA Music Festival. The most recently added talents slated to take the big stage at the Tennessee Titans’ LP Field include Blake Shelton, Scotty McCreery, Dierks Bentley, Alan Jackson and Brantley Gilbert. This year’s biggest night in country music will be taking over Nashville from June 7 through June 10.
It’s a bromance made in heaven. The tall, handsome cowboy who’s hesitant to show his soft side meets the artistic, brooding rocker who wears his feelings like a name tag. No, it’s not the preview for another terrible made-for-TV movie — it’s the man crush action happening between Blake Shelton and his fellow ‘The Voice‘ coach Adam Levine. If you’ve watched the show, you’ve seen the sparks flying from that first red chair to that fourth one. And in a recent interview with MTV, the country star opened up and admitted his feelings.
Country singer Chely Wright is leveraging her sphere of influence to continue promoting a cause that she cares deeply and personally about. Wright, who came out just two years ago, has since created a philanthropic organization called Like Me that serves to support the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Now, Like Me is opening a LGBT community center called the Lighthouse.
Brad Paisley just wrapped the most recent leg of his Virtual Reality Tour on Saturday (March 3) in Lexington, Ky., and from the looks of it, the ‘Remind Me’ singer is not planning on pausing for any amount of time. This week, Paisley announced he’ll be continuing his tour with the two openers who he took on the road for the first part — the Band Perry and Scotty McCreery. Plus, Easton Corbin will be joining for certain shows.
Taylor Swift is not one to hide her philanthropic heart or her concern for the well-being of children everywhere. The multi-Grammy award-winning 22-year-old has given generously of her time and money to work toward better early childhood education and to empower young children to have the resources to read. Now, there’s an internet campaign going on to raise awareness of the horrors of militant Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony, and Swift is in full support.
Though Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have become quite the ‘it couple’ in and beyond the realm of country music, the two agree that they’re not planning for kids anytime soon. In a recent interview with US Weekly, Shelton explained that while they will be ringing in their first anniversary in May, they’re content to put off that next step for just a little while longer.
More than 20 years ago, in March of 1991, Reba McEntire experienced a tragedy that will stay with her for the rest of her life. On Sunday night (March 4), the country star opened up on the OWN show ‘Oprah’s Master Class’ about the tragic plane crash that took the lives of seven of her band members, as well as her tour manager and two pilots.
