Images of The Future

There’s always some less-than-thrilling things that happen each week, whether it’s across the country, down to Music City in Nashville, or right here in our WNY backyards.

    Chris Young Hospitalized

    I don't know what the deal is this summer with country stars in the hospital. Dustin Lynch, Jake Owen, Randy Travis and now Chris Young. And not because their wives are popping out babies.

    OK, I made that last one up. But I'm pretty sure that's an unwritten rule already.

    Lady A Adjusting To Motherhood

    Why is this a bad thing?

    Hillary Scott is at home beginning motherhood and nursing her newborn baby.

    How are Dave and Charles cooping? They're still playing shows without her -- under the name of Dick Fantastic and the Fabulous Four Skins.

    “People say we look a lot like those guys from Lady Antebellum. I hate that band. Such a stupid name,” ‘Dick’ (a.k.a. Kelley) joked onstage, adding, “Really, we just haven’t played a show in a couple of months and we’re going stir crazy…”

    "The company that provided insurance for the equipment used by Sugarland and Sara Bareilles at the Indiana State Fair in August 2011 is suing the state and several others for damages. The lawsuit seeks monetary compensation to cover equipment harmed during the and after the stage collapse."

    Suddenly the tables have turned.
