Yep, it’s true that Brad Paisley has been taking some humorous shots at Paul McCartney‘s most recent album title. At the same time, it’s also true that Sir McCartney selected a moniker he most certainly assumed might take some flack from the music community. One can hardly land on a title like ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ without first thinking through the potential ramifications (and public commentaries).
Eric Church has never been one to hoist up the cost of his concert tickets to pad his pockets. In fact, he says that goes against his entire philosophy as an artist, as his goal has always been to get more people to his shows rather than more money per ticket sale. With this mentality, then, it’s not surprising that the Grammy-nominated singer is so peeved about what’s been happening at shows all along his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour. Church has some choice words for the big ticket brokers that have been purchasing his tickets and scalping them to fans.
The media conglomerate Viacom and Taylor Swift just announced that they’re joining forces for the first-ever MTV global music video premiere, featuring Taylor Swift’s ‘Safe and Sound’ video from the soundtrack to the upcoming flick ‘The Hunger Games.’ The video is set to debut Feb. 13, and because of the scope of the media giant and the popularity of the ‘Mean’ singer, Viacom expects the video could air in as many as 600 million homes around the globe.

Country sweetheart Miranda Lambert has been in the news a good bit lately, and most of the headlines have revolved around the personal tragedies she’s encountered in the past couple of weeks. The ‘Baggage Claim’ singer had to deal with the death of her father-in-law, her childhood friend and even her beloved dog, Dixie. Though Lambert has been dealing with these losses, she kept most of her On Fire Tour in tact, but the emotion of everything overcame her at a Huntsville, Ala. show Thursday night. There, Lamber broke down crying in the middle of her nostalgic hit ‘The House That Built Me.’
Dierks Bentley announced that he’s unrolling more U.S. dates for his Country and Cold Cans Tour.
