The Band Perry truly shot onto the spotlight in the past year, perhaps so quickly that it seems most surreal to them. At the Grammy ceremony Sunday, they performed a tribute to Glen Campbell, singing his ‘Gentle on My Mind’ and then joining the legend and Blake Shelton for the classic ‘Rhinestone Cowboy.’ With that impressive performance behind them, the sibling trio are getting ready for their first headlining Nashville show.
Kenny Rogers filed a federal lawsuit Monday (Feb. 13) against his label Capitol Records, claiming the label owes him money for digital music sales. He’s also claiming he is owed $400,000 from Capitol that he has yet to receive because of a number of accounting errors. According to the suit, the second part of the claim has been an ongoing battle since 2007.
Wynonna Judd got engaged to sweetheart and band member Cactus Moser on Christmas Eve, and the singer just revealed some details about her upcoming fall wedding. While you might expect the country star to go for something shimmering and glitzy, Judd says that’s not in the cards for her in this, her third, wedding. In fact, this time around she tells People that the theme will be “barefoot and just fun.”
Just this week, iTunes finally revealed the full tracklisting for the long-awaited soundtrack to the highly-anticipated upcoming film, ‘The Hunger Games,’ and thankfully, a few country names made the list. We’ve known for quite some time now that Taylor Swift‘s collaboration with the Civil Wars, ‘Safe and Sound,’ would be included, and it’s actually at the top of the list.
‘CBS This Morning‘ shared the below clips of Jason Aldean‘s recent interview with Ben Tracy, where Aldean took Tracy backstage on his sold-out tour and also opened up about his rapid rise to country stardom. Despite the fact that Aldean didn’t win at the Grammys, he had the top-selling country album of the year as well as the fifth bestselling album in all of music. The singer is currently on his My Kinda Party Tour, where Tracy caught up with him before a show in Orlando.
In a new statement made Monday (Feb. 13), Dolly Parton emphasized once again just how deeply saddened she is by the tragic and sudden death of pop superstar Whitney Houston, who died Saturday in a Beverly Hills hotel room. Parton seems to have felt a special connection with the soaring songstress, especially since they shared the hit ‘I Will Always Love You,’ a song Parton wrote and performed in 1974. Houston then brought the git to girls across the globe, who sang it into their hairbrushes after 1992, trying to mimic the astounding runs and unbelievable high notes of the talent.
After a string of serious health issues and hospitalizations, 74-year-old Merle Haggard said in a statement on Wednesday that he’s “feeling good and ready to get back on the bus.” This comes after the Country Music Hall of Famer was hospitalized multiple times in the past few months, receiving treatment for double pneumonia, stomach ulcers, the removal of eight polyps from his colon and esophageal diverticulitis.
Monday at 7:54PM ET, Taylor Swift will premiere her ‘Safe and Sound’ video from ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack. If you don’t think you can wait that long, we’ve got good news and bad news for you. The good news is that MTV posted a preview of the video today, and the bad news is that it’s less than 10 seconds long. Still, it gives you a quick glimpse at what you can expect to see on Monday.
Yep, it’s true that Brad Paisley has been taking some humorous shots at Paul McCartney‘s most recent album title. At the same time, it’s also true that Sir McCartney selected a moniker he most certainly assumed might take some flack from the music community. One can hardly land on a title like ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ without first thinking through the potential ramifications (and public commentaries).
On March 17, Reba McEntire will release her first televised concert special in more than 15 years. The 90-minute special, ‘All the Women I Am,’ will premiere on GAC. Encompassing the energy of McEntire’s live show, much of the footage for the TV special will come from her recent concert at Louisiana’s Cajun Dome, where the longtime performer had a film crew come along with her and roll tape.
Eric Church has never been one to hoist up the cost of his concert tickets to pad his pockets. In fact, he says that goes against his entire philosophy as an artist, as his goal has always been to get more people to his shows rather than more money per ticket sale. With this mentality, then, it’s not surprising that the Grammy-nominated singer is so peeved about what’s been happening at shows all along his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour. Church has some choice words for the big ticket brokers that have been purchasing his tickets and scalping them to fans.
The media conglomerate Viacom and Taylor Swift just announced that they’re joining forces for the first-ever MTV global music video premiere, featuring Taylor Swift’s ‘Safe and Sound’ video from the soundtrack to the upcoming flick ‘The Hunger Games.’ The video is set to debut Feb. 13, and because of the scope of the media giant and the popularity of the ‘Mean’ singer, Viacom expects the video could air in as many as 600 million homes around the globe.
