Aside from his multi-platinum country music career, you could say Trace Adkins has dabbled in the arts in a way. He wrote and released his own autobiographyin 2007, and he’s made appearance on several television shows as well. To top that, Adkins can be seen acting in a variety of films, including 2008′s ‘An American Carol’ and 2011′s ‘The Lincoln Lawyer.’
If there’s one thing you need to know about Brad Paisley before ever signing up to go on tour with him, it’s that the high-energy singer is anything but predictable. In a witty turn of events this past weekend, Paisley ended his prank war with young talent Scotty McCreery by not pranking the ‘The Trouble With Girls’ singer at all, instead going after the other young band on tour with him — the Band Perry.
Kristin Chenoweth has the trifecta of talents: She can act on film, she can act onstage, and boy can the girl sing. Now, the Emmy and Tony winner, who was also inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, is gearing up for a 19-city tour to support her September 2011 country album, ‘Some Lessons Learned.’ The tour will kick off May 9 at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre and will wrap June 24 in Chenoweth’s hometown of Broken Arrow, Okla.
Little Big Town released their last record, ‘The Reason Why,’ in 2010, and now they’re hitting the studio once again with the goal of bringing to life their next release, which will be their fifth as a band. For this project, the group is teaming up with producer Jay Joyce, who has worked with artists like the endlessly successful Eric Church and the Wallflowers.
The big country music event slated for April is the telecast of the Academy of Country Music Awards, but now there’s another significant televised event happening soon after. On April 13, CBS will be featuring ‘ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert,’ which will include a variety of country duets featuring Lionel Richie and some of the top stars from ACMs, which air on April 1.
Few things are as inherently southern as iced tea and country music. Perhaps that’s why country mega-trio Lady Antebellum have partnered with the biggest tea brand in the United States, Lipton, to promote the beverage to their fans across the country. Unilever, the company that owns Lipton and works in partnership with PepsiCo, recently announced plans to unroll a giant marketing campaign with Lady Antebellum in 2012, including national ads on TV, in print, on the radio, on the Internet and more.
It would seem that someone out in the media cosmos is randomly throwing out potential beaus for admittedly — nay, adamantly — single country sweetheart Taylor Swift, and each time they’re catching like wildfire. The teen sensation likely doesn’t have enough hours in the day to deflect all the dating rumors that have been thrown her way as of late. Every time she talks to a guy, meets him for dinner or glances up in his direction, she’s smacked with a dating question mark. And this time, her suspected match is NFL star Tim Tebow.
At the beginning of last year, news sources started reporting that Shania Twain was going the Celine Dion route and planning for a residency show on the Las Vegas strip. Now, more than a year later, the ‘Any Man of Mine’ singer is in pre-production for the show, according to CBS Las Vegas.
Miranda Lambert confirmed that she’s working on a television series that’s loosely based on her childhood in Texas. In a recent interview with Dan Van from Albright & O’Malley, the country gal talked more about the the show, which is rumored to be about a boy and a girl — likely inspired by Lambert and her brother — who help their private investigator parents solve crimes.
Jason Aldean might sport a cowboy hat most of the time, but in the occasional behind-the-scenes video we’ll see him looking like the all-American guy in a baseball cap, a T-shirt and jeans. Recently, Aldean took it a big step further, stepping out of the world of pearl snaps, snakeskins and belt buckles to don a uniform of a different kind: an Atlanta Braves baseball uniform, complete with cleats and all.
Fighting to become the first female ‘American Idol’ winner in five seasons, the Top 12 ‘Idol’ girls took the intimidating stage tonight to test their singing chops and try to win America’s heart (and their votes). First up was 23-year-old Stokesdale, North Carolina native Chelsea Sorrell, who took on a song that required some very big and very controlled pipes: ‘Idol’ alum Carrie Underwood‘s sassy ‘Cowboy Casanova.’
She’s the adorable 18-year-old from Brandon, Miss. who’s been compared to a young Reba McEntire, and on tonight’s episode of ‘American Idol,’ the young Skylar Laine minted her place in the competition with a killer rendition of the Faces’ song ‘Stay With Me.’ Written by Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood, the song perfectly matched Laine’s soulful voice.
