At Saturday night’s Jason Aldean My Kinda Party Tour show in Champaign, Ill., one fan was trying to have his own kinda party — but he wasn’t able to stay in the audience long enough to see it to a good close.

Country radio station B104 was in attendance at the show and came back with the juicy details.
Country sweetheart Miranda Lambert has been in the news a good bit lately, and most of the headlines have revolved around the personal tragedies she’s encountered in the past couple of weeks.

Though Lambert has been dealing with these losses, she kept most of her On Fire Tour in tact, but the emotion of everything overcame her at a Huntsville, Ala. show Thursday night. There, Lamber broke down crying in the middle of her nostalgic hit ‘The House That Built Me.’

The new issue of Rolling Stone has just been revealed, and fronting the rock and pop culture mag is none other than Blake Shelton, joined by his fellow celebrity judges from NBC’s smash entertainment show ‘The Voice.’ In jeans and a black button-up, Shelton is a mixture of dapper and Nashville outlaw, with his outdoorsman, barbed wire and deer track tattoo exposed just below his rolled cuff.
