Kenny Chesney fans will want to tune into the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 1. The superstar is planning a major reveal at the show, choosing to perform the first single from his brand new album, according to a representative from his label BNA. It’s certainly interesting that the title of the single has not yet been determined but the live premiere has! Even so, Chesney fans will take it.
Poor Taylor Swift. She really got ‘Punk’d’ by Justin Bieber in the brand new season of the hidden camera series that MTV is exhuming as of March 29. A teaser clip of the Biebs punking his pal Swift has surfaced online, and while it’s hilarious to the viewer and those in on the prank, it’s not as quite funny to Swift, as a look of genuine terror crosses her face. She appears completely concerned about the events that unfold in the forthcoming episode.
The country genre is cooking on Time’s list of Top 10 Celebrity Restaurants. Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill and Kenny Rogers’ Kenny Rogers Roasters both made the cut. Keith and Rogers certainly know their way around the recording studio and the live stage, but they also know how to be successful entrepreneurs in the food biz.
Craig Campbell is revving his engines. The ‘Family Man’ singer will make his way down to the Daytona International Speedway this coming weekend, where he will headline the Coca-Cola stage in the Midway Fan Zone prior to the start of the Daytona 500. Campbell will hit the stage at 10:45 AM ET on Sunday, Feb. 26. He is slated to play a free, 90-minute set. Yes, you read right. The show is free.
Alan Jackson will cruise onto ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ on Friday, March 30 to perform his new single, ‘So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore.’ If you haven’t thought that far ahead about your plans, now you have a pretty good idea of what you will be doing that evening.
Dierks Bentley‘s got a generous heart and a pointed interest in supporting our troops and their families, especially those in need. The country singer gifted a military family who needed a little help with a $50,000 donation on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Wednesday, and he was met with a hug from a uniformed officer and his wife, who shed tears of joy over Bentley’s financial contribution on their behalf.
Congrats to the Civil Wars for picking up the Best Country Duo/Group Performance award at the 2012 Grammy Awards. The pair nabbed the trophy for their debut album, ‘Barton Hollow.’ While the Civil Wars, and their music, are obviously quality enough to earn them a Grammy and the national attention that comes along with it, it was frontman John Paul White’s acceptance speech that will be vividly remembered.
Looking resplendent in a black and gold strapless gown, Carrie Underwood welcomed her duet partner, Tony Bennett, to the 2012 Grammy Awards stage with quite an intro. She called him “the best new artist of all time,” since he continues to reach a new generation of fans year after year with his music.
Alison Krauss and Union Station accepted the 2012 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album for ‘Paper Airplane.’ This particular award was not televised on CBS — the actual prime time broadcast begins at 8PM ET. Instead, Krauss and the band accepted the award during the pre-telecast, which streamed online. The bulk of the awards are handed out during the online stream, so this segment is more about the awards than the performances.
Dolly Parton and the late Whitney Houston are forever connected through one very specific hit ballad. Houston’s version of ‘I Will Always Love You’ — which Parton wrote and first released in 1974 — was a massive hit for Houston in 1992 as part of ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack.
Love is definitely in the air in the 30-second commercial for Soul2Soul, the new his-and-her fragrances from country’s first couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. Hill and McGraw proudly display their passion and love in this black and white clip, which celebrates two fragrances and one love story. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, right?
What does a incredibly successful country superstar do to celebrate his good fortunes, which include notching his eighth No. 1 hit (‘Tattoos on This Town’), releasing one of the best-selling albums of the past two years (‘My Kinda Party’) and embarking on a sold-out tour? Well, fulfilling a dream like purchasing a nice chunk of property is great way to enjoy the fruits of your labor and that’s just what Jason Aldean did.
