It’s an old maxim that you should write what you know, and Taylor Swift has taken those words to heart, earning a reputation as a songwriter who leans heavily on the events of her own life — particularly her love life — as grist for her music.
Of course, it isn’t as easy as just coming up with a few rhymes about some boy she likes — and during a recent YouTube chat, Swift delved into some of her songwriting methods, as well as dishing a little about what fans can expect to hear from her next album.
The last time Tim McGraw and Faith Hill went on tour together, it went pretty well — the string of dates they shared in 2006 and 2007 broke the record for the top-grossing country tour of all time.
Next year, they’ll take their act on the road again, and although this looks like a much shorter run — only six dates have been announced — they’ll still be covering a lot of distance. In fact, they’re heading all the way to Australia.
Clint Eastwood is famous in Hollywood for being a fast, no-nonsense director who brings his films in on time and under budget, but his next project — a remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ — is having trouble just getting started.
Eastwood initially cast Beyoncé in the lead, but her pregnancy seems likely to keep her from making the planned February 2012 start date, and his preferred leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio, has reportedly turned down the role. According to CMT’s sources, DiCaprio’s loss could end up being Tim McGraw‘s gain.
With millions of records sold in armloads of Grammys to their credit, the members of Lady Antebellum are certified country music royalty — so perhaps vocalist Hillary Scott was feeling like a princess the other night in New Hampshire when she met a frog backstage.
And even though Scott’s already found her prince in fiance Chris Tyrell, who can blame a girl for wanting to see if magic will strike twice?
Adkins invited members of the Middle Tennessee Big Brothers Big Sisters organization out to his farm last week, and they spent the day on his lake, enjoying activities like swimming, paddle boating, and, yes, fishing.
“The charges being dropped against me pretty much says everything,” reflected Lawrence. The district attorney declined to pursue the case against Lawrence, citing a lack of confidence in available evidence, but the charges against the promoter are still pending.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a musician who doesn’t appreciate his or her fans — without them, after all, no one would be able to record or tour. But during a recent concert, rising country star Eric Church demonstrated just how much his fans mean to him.
The top of the country singles charts is familiar territory for Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood — their duet ‘Remind Me,’ currently number one, is his 20th chart-topper, and her 14th.
But even if the song produced predictable results for the duo, it started with a burst of unusual inspiration. As Paisley tells it, the idea for ‘Remind Me’ came from watching the sort of character acting commonly heard in hip-hop.
The last time Kelly Clarkson cut a duet with a country star, the result was her number one hit with Jason Aldean, ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay,’ so it’s only natural that, during a recent Web chat, she was asked if she’d consider teaming up with any other artists.
