Zac Brown Band woke New York City up with a whole mess of country music this morning (July 13). The band performed on breakfast TV program ‘TODAY,’ kicking off their three-song set at Rockefeller Center with ‘Keep Me in Mind.’
Tim McGraw had a special guest at the Charlotte, N.C. stop of his Brothers of the Sun Tour on Sunday, June 24. After performing alongside wife Faith Hill in Nashville on Saturday, he brought out local boy-done-good Scotty McCreery to sing the second verse of ‘I Like It, I Love It.’ To say that it was met with a resounding applause from the crowd would be putting it mildly.
In the Band Perry‘s new ‘Postcard From Paris‘ video, Kimberly and her brothers are seen hanging out in the French Quarter of New Orleans (not exactly Paris itself, but close enough, right?). The storyline-driven clip — which features minimal performance footage, save for the band singing in front of black and white “Wanted” signs and photos — shows the adorable blonde being watched by an admirer from afar. Since she is constantly flanked by her siblings, they are indirectly being watched, as well. But Kimberly is clearly the focus of the follower.
Carrie Underwood is dominating the landscape right now, especially in the mainstream media. The ‘Blown Away’ singer, whose new album of the same name topped the Billboard chart for two weeks in a row, will be featured in the forthcoming 20th anniversary ‘Dateline’ special, which airs tonight (May 22) at 10PM ET on NBC. Make a note of it!
Congratulations are in order for Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum and Blake Shelton. All three country acts have been nominated for 2012 Teen Choice Awards outside of their genre. Swift was nominated in the Choice Female Artist category, where she is up against pop divas like Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Rihanna. Lady A received a nod in the Choice Music Group category, where they will do battle with the likes of LMFAO and the Wanted, among others.
Taylor Swift is known for her confessional songs regarding her romantic relationships, but she is also able to celebrate other interpersonal connections through a different artform. The singer has released a new line of Mother’s Day cards via American Greetings, which feature her imagery of her tunes, like ‘Stay Beautiful’ and ‘The Best Day,’ the latter of which she penned for her own mom, Andrea.
Power trio Lady Antebellum commandeered ‘The View’ stage yesterday morning (May 1), performing their moving ballad ‘Dancing Away With My Heart’ from their ‘Own the Night’ album. The daily gabfest’s stage was billowing with clouds of white and purple smoke at Lady A’s feet for the entire performance. It was a dramatic effect, but it was almost enough for us to wonder if they needed a fire extinguisher!
Even though he is the co-host of the 2012 ACM Awards, Blake Shelton didn’t stuff the ballot to win the Male Vocalist of the Year award. He won it because he is awesome. We’d venture to guess that some of his newly-cultivated fans from his stint on the ‘The Voice‘ voted, too.
Blake Shelton is a busy man, but he’s busting his butt now, releasing albums, touring and appearing on ‘The Voice’ so — as he puts it — he and his wife Miranda Lambert can “relax and not have to tour until we’re on our walkers.” Clearly, Shelton and Lambert plan to enjoy their twilight years by taking gigs and socking away cash now so they don’t have to stumble on stage when they are past their prime… although it is hard to imagine their talents aging or expiring.
