Saturday night (March 17) Miranda Lambert and her touring crew hit Broomfield, Colo.’s 1st Bank Event Center. During her show, Lambert invited another powerful female vocalist — and fellow ‘The Voice‘ mentor — to take the stage with her. Surprising the audience, Kelly Clarkson emerged and offered up her recent single ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ from her fifth studio album, 2011′s ‘Stronger,’ as well as Lambert’s own ‘Gunpowder and Lead’ with the help of the blonde country starlet herself.
What do you do when a band has taken home every possible award and still continues to amaze? Think up another creative way to honor them. On Sunday night (March 11), the multi-Grammy Award-winning trio Lady Antebellum received plaques at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn., congratulating them on their 15th consecutive sold out tour date on their We Own the Night 2012 World Tour.
ABC Drama is filming a pilot for a new show titled ‘Nashville,’ which will of course revolve around the life of a 40-year-0ld fictional country superstar who’s struggling with a dip in her career, trying to stay afloat in the industry. But, before you roll your eyes and claim you’ve seen this show one too many times, there’s one thing you have to know: Playing the part of Rayna James, the fading country star, will be none other than the beloved Connie Britton, best known for her role as the understanding yet sassy mom on ‘Friday Night Lights.’
Today, the Academy of Country Music announced an additional star-studded lineup of performers for the 47th annual Academy of Country Music Awards, which will take place the evening of Sunday, April 1. Included in the newly-unrolled cast of country greats are Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Chris Young, the Band Perry and Rascal Flatts. Arguably one of the biggest nights in country music, second only to the CMAs, the awards show will be broadcast live from Las Vegas’ MGM Grand.
It’s a bromance made in heaven. The tall, handsome cowboy who’s hesitant to show his soft side meets the artistic, brooding rocker who wears his feelings like a name tag. No, it’s not the preview for another terrible made-for-TV movie — it’s the man crush action happening between Blake Shelton and his fellow ‘The Voice‘ coach Adam Levine. If you’ve watched the show, you’ve seen the sparks flying from that first red chair to that fourth one. And in a recent interview with MTV, the country star opened up and admitted his feelings.
It’s going to be a long time before any of us truly forgets that awkwardly painful moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards between Taylor Swift and Kanye West. After Swift won the award for Best Female Video, the rapper charged the stage in the middle of her acceptance speech, hijacked the mic and made a rant in favor of Beyoncé. Whether you’re a Swift fan or not, that was a moment of discomfort for everyone involved. Even so, a recent move by the country starlet seems to suggest that she’s willing to forgive and (at least try to) forget.
The big country music event slated for April is the telecast of the Academy of Country Music Awards, but now there’s another significant televised event happening soon after. On April 13, CBS will be featuring ‘ACM Presents: Lionel Richie and Friends in Concert,’ which will include a variety of country duets featuring Lionel Richie and some of the top stars from ACMs, which air on April 1.
More than 20 years ago, in March of 1991, Reba McEntire experienced a tragedy that will stay with her for the rest of her life. On Sunday night (March 4), the country star opened up on the OWN show ‘Oprah’s Master Class’ about the tragic plane crash that took the lives of seven of her band members, as well as her tour manager and two pilots.
Perhaps it was Taylor Swift‘s recent ‘Vogue’ cover that inspired the editors of the Australian edition of Harper’s Bazaar to put the glamorous ‘it girl’ on the front of their April issue. Whatever the inspiration, Swift can be seen on the cover in a black and gold shimmering Gucci dress — priced at $10,000 — that nods to the ’80s with its bold, almost geometric pattern, but is more reminiscent of a swanky flapper dress from the ’20s.
Miranda Lambert confirmed that she’s working on a television series that’s loosely based on her childhood in Texas. In a recent interview with Dan Van from Albright & O’Malley, the country gal talked more about the the show, which is rumored to be about a boy and a girl — likely inspired by Lambert and her brother — who help their private investigator parents solve crimes.
Jason Aldean might sport a cowboy hat most of the time, but in the occasional behind-the-scenes video we’ll see him looking like the all-American guy in a baseball cap, a T-shirt and jeans. Recently, Aldean took it a big step further, stepping out of the world of pearl snaps, snakeskins and belt buckles to don a uniform of a different kind: an Atlanta Braves baseball uniform, complete with cleats and all.
In a new set of Jack Daniel’s commercials, Zac Brown Band promote the Tennessee whiskey while encouraging people to have self control while drinking. One of the commercials features frontman Zac Brown briefly talking about what it means to be in a band and to have people looking out for you — which means keeping you from making compromised decisions.
