Country fans who were excited to watch Luke Bryan sing the National Anthem at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night were left feeling confused by the end of his rendition. Without fail, the ‘Drunk on You’ singer hit all the notes and impressed baseball fans inside Kauffman Stadium — but those watching closely at home noticed that the singer appeared to be reading something, like the lyrics to the song, from his palm as he sang.
On Sunday night, Taylor Swift was officially crowned with one of the most prestigious nods given at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards: Woman of the Year. Following a strong introduction by Kris Kristofferson — who called her “one of the most successful artists in country music” — Swift got a multi-minute reel recapping all of the heights she’s reached in her relatively short career.
George Strait has literally hundreds of songs in his vast catalog, but in honor of his 60th birthday today (May 18), we’re asking you the impossible: What is your favorite George Strait song? Trust us, we know — the possibilities are endless. Yet somehow, we’ve narrowed it down to just five choices.
Apparently, Taylor Swift won’t be taking part in ‘Les Miserables’ after all. Though the 22-year-old pop-country hitmaker was spotted in London recently, presumably working out the kinks of her role as Eponine, she has since been pulled from the ‘Les Miserables’ cast list.
It’s really happening. Carrie Underwood really is releasing a new album, and the proof is in the first single! Underwood just announced in a special video message that ‘Good Girl’ will be the lead-off track from her forthcoming new record.
Singer-songwriter Jason Isbell is mad at Dierks Bentley — really mad. Twang Nation first spotted the Muscle Shoals, Ala. artist ranting and raving via his Twitter page, accusing Bentley of plagiarizing his song ‘In a Razor Town’ to create the chart-topper ‘Home,’ and he doesn’t seem prepared to back down any time soon.
Tim and Faith have a set; Taylor Swift has one, too. But for some reason, ‘Own the Night’ trio Lady Antebellum don’t think they’re worthy of having dolls made to look like miniature versions of themselves just yet. In a new feature for the Wall Street Journal, Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood remained modest while dishing on toys and tours.
It seems that pop star Demi Lovato is considering going country. The ‘Skyscraper’ singer, who was perhaps best known for her roles in ‘Barney and Friends’ and Disney’s ‘Sonny With a Chance’ before taking on a music career, tweeted that she just wrote her first country song.
Pop star Kelly Clarkson found herself in hot water with many of her fans when she shared her support for Presidential candidate Ron Paul via her Twitter page, but thankfully for her, it was Blake Shelton to the rescue. The ‘Honey Bee’ hitmaker swooped in to say that he loves to hear Clarkson’s point of view and would even give someone a good smack if needed.
