Rising Star Hunter Hayes Sets October 11 Release Date for Self-Titled Debut Album

Taylor Swift was all of 16 when she released her debut album. By comparison, her recent tourmate, 19-year-old Hunter Hayes, is a bit of a fogey — but by any other measure, he’s releasing his first record at an impressively young age.

The budding hitmaker, who got his big break co-writing a track from Rascal Flatts’ ‘Nothing Like This Album’ and scored his first top 30 hit earlier this year with ‘Storm Warning,’ will release his self-titled debut on October 11.

Sunny Sweeney Reveals Why She Got ‘Personal’ on Her New Album, ‘Concrete’

Her name might suggest sweetness and light, but country sensation Sunny Sweeney probably has a little more in common with the title of her new album, ‘Concrete’ — she’s tough, unyielding, and not someone you’d want to go up against.

John Rich Wants You to Be His Neighbor

In most American cities, it’s been getting harder to sell a house for a few years now — and the buyer’s market can be difficult to navigate even if you’re one of country’s top hitmakers.

That’s the lesson learned by John Rich, who’s taking no chances when it comes to selling his first Nashville residence — which, as luck would have it, sits next door to his current home.
