Jason Aldean made a clean sweep at December’s ACAs, taking home six trophies. This weekend, Aldean will head to Los Angeles to attend his first ever Grammys — where he is not only performing, but nominated in three of the country categories: Best Country Solo Performance for ‘Dirt Road Anthem,’ Best Country Duo/Group Performance for ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ (duet with Kelly Clarkson) and Album of the Year for ‘My Kinda Party.’
Tuesday night (Feb. 7), Jake Owen was among the lucky few Nashville residents who were able to see an early screening of the highly anticipated new movie ‘Act of Valor.’ But seeing the movie prior to it hitting theaters was not the only honor and perk Owen experienced that night. The singer was also able to rub elbows with some active duty Navy SEALS and express his gratitude for what they do day after day for our country.
As Jerrod Niemann gears up to spend the next several weeks on the road with Miranda Lambert and Chris Young on the On Fire Tour, the singer-songwriter has shared high hopes of doing some collaborations off the stage, as well as on, with his labelmates.
Congratulations are in order for the legendary George Strait, who is now a proud (and might we add very cool) grandpa! Strait’s songwriting son Bubba and his wife Tamara welcomed their first child into the world last Thursday, Feb. 2, as announced by the glowing Gramps from onstage in Phoenix, Ariz. last week. Local country radio station KMLE broke the news following Strait’s show Friday night.
After what has undeniably been a rough start to a new year, things seem to be turning a new leaf for Jake Owen. Owen, who broke his collarbone in a snowboarding accident on Friday, Jan. 13 and was forced into surgery, resulting in the cancellation of several shows, has returned to the road — and to his adoring fans — who were even more excited than ever to see his smiling face.
As if walking over 1,700 miles across the country for homeless youth in 2010 on his Meet Me Halfway campaign wasn’t enough of a stand for Jimmy Wayne to talk for foster kids nationwide, he is now doing even more. Wayne has teamed up with Memphis Representative to pass a critical legislation bill in Tennessee to help many foster children transition into adulthood after they “age out” of the foster care system.
Miranda Lambert has rescheduled her performance this coming Friday (Feb. 3) in Tallahassee, Fla. at the Leon County Civic Center in order to attend a funeral for her childhood friend, Mark “Tex” Adams, who passed away last week. The new date for the show has been set for Thursday, May 17.
Over the weekend (Saturday, Jan. 21), Lee Brice was the latest country star to fall victim to an unexpected bus fire that destroyed his home on wheels. After pulling into Toby Keith‘s I Love This Bar and Grill restaurant in Mesa, Ariz., the back end of Brice’s Prevost tour bus caught on fire, but everyone escaped with minimal damage. Brice is now reflecting on the scare.
