Rolling Stone Names Billy Ray Cyrus’ ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ the Third-Worst Song of the ’90s

If you sat down and made a list of the things the internet loves, “lists” and “snark” would have to end up somewhere near the top — so you can hardly blame Rolling Stone for loading up on both with a recent feature dubbed ‘The Worst Songs of the ’90s.’

Country fans can take pride in their genre, which emerged from the countdown relatively unscathed, albeit with one significant, and hardly surprising, exception.

Chris Young Credits His Success to Strong Work Ethic

These days, Chris Young is riding high with his fourth consecutive number one single, ‘Tomorrow,’ and a new hit album, ‘Neon.’ But life wasn’t always so rosy for the onetime ‘Nashville Star’ winner.

In fact, before Young released his first hit single, ‘Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song),’ he had to deal with the news that his father had been diagnosed with cancer.

Clint Eastwood is famous in Hollywood for being a fast, no-nonsense director who brings his films in on time and under budget, but his next project — a remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ — is having trouble just getting started.

Eastwood initially cast Beyoncé in the lead, but her pregnancy seems likely to keep her from making the planned February 2012 start date, and his preferred leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio, has reportedly turned down the role.
