Lady Antebellum are in the middle of their 2012 Own The Night World Tour, and though their calendars leave them barely enough room to take a breath between shows, the Grammy-amassing trio say they already have a dozen songs for their next record. Talking to Billboard.com, Hillary Scott says the band has 12 songs ready, whether they’ve written them as a band or selected them from outside writers.
This weekend, George Strait walked onstage at his Kansas City, Mo. show to meet 18,000 fans eagerly awaiting his performance. The country music veteran stepped up to the mic with his guitar and went through the motions of starting a show, just like he knows so well how to do. But after two songs, the seasoned talent had to cut the show short, admitting he was too sick to continue.
Carrie Underwood is getting ready to perform at the Nordstrom Symphony Fashion Show, a sold-out event that will take place at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Feb. 28. The show, which will feature an exclusive presentation of Oscar de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection, will also showcase a performance by Underwood. In a recent interview with Nashville’s NFocus magazine, Underwood dished a bit on her favorite designers, her style muses and how she stays fit and glowing despite her hectic schedule.
Sugarland have long been embroiled in a lawsuit surrounding the August 13, 2011 stage collapse at their show at the Indiana State Fair. Now, responding to lawsuits coming at them, they’re claiming one last time that the incident, which left seven dead and more than 40 injured, was not their fault.
It’s certainly no secret that Taylor Swift has a whole generation of young followers. With her upcoming Dr. Seuss film ‘The Lorax‘ set to hit theaters March 2, Swift is poised to have an even bigger influence on the lives of youngsters across the country. In this recently released campaign video for the National Education Association, Swift joins fellow ‘Lorax’ cast members Betty White, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms (from ‘The Office’) and Zac Efron to read a Seuss-like poem promoting the NEA’s Read Across America Day.
Today, Rascal Flatts finally pulled back the veil on the tracklisting for their highly-anticipated upcoming record, ‘Changed.’ Just last month, the trio announced that they will be releasing the album on April 3, and now they’re upping their game with a deluxe version, which will hit shelves the same day. The deluxe edition will feature four bonus tracks, including ‘Friday Can’t Come Fast Enough,’ ‘Fall Here,’ ‘Right One Time’ and ‘Next To You, Next To Me.’
After Chris Brown was given the stage for not one but two Grammy performances this year, Miranda Lambert has had no problem stepping up to let her fans know how she feels about the hip-hop artist and his past as an abuser. Not only did she tweet several times with her feelings on the matter, but Lambert finally took her anger to the stage at a show this week, as seen in the below video Taste of Country received from a fan.
Jason Aldean has taken the country music world by storm in the past few years, shooting out of the ranks of wannabe country stars and into sold-out arena tours. The ‘My Kinda Party’ singer may perform to 20,000 people on any given night, and his songs have been climbing the charts like kids on a playground. Even so, the laid-back country hitmaker says he’s not about to go around giving other hopefuls advice — especially not on a reality TV show.
Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles used a recent break from her tour for a truly admirable cause. She joined forces with the Heart Truth, an organization that raises awareness about the little known fact that heart disease is actually the leading cause of death among women. Strutting her stuff for the organization on the red c
Maybe it really is true that you just can’t do it all. At least that’s what ‘Red Solo Cup’ singer Toby Keith seems to be discovering. After making appearances in the movies ‘Beer for My Horses’ and ‘Broken Bridges,’ Keith says he’s throwing in the acting towel for good — but not because he didn’t enjoy it.
Friday night, Keith Urban hit the stage of Moody Theater in Austin, Texas to raise money for the Beyond Batten Disease Foundation.

This weekend, pop diva Whitney Houston’s death shook the music community to its core, leaving stars so stunned and sad that the only appropriate way to respond seemed to be offering up a version of the awe-inspiring ‘I Will Always Love You.’ We saw Jennifer Hudson bring the Grammy audience to the point of tears with her chill-invoking tribute on the big stage last night. But even before that emotional performance, LeAnn Rimes paid tribute to the fallen star by singing the hit song at her show in Reno, Nev.
