On her new album ‘Blown Away,’ Carrie Underwood spends time looking backward at relationships that have run their course. The mid-tempo, mandolin driven ‘Do You Think About Me’ is a nostalgic remembrance of a boyfriend that she no longer pines for, but certainly thinks about.
After angering fans and participants in reality television shows like ‘The Voice’ and ‘American Idol’ on Monday, Eric Church issued a press release in which he attempted to clarify his comments. He also apologized… sort of. Carrie Underwood didn’t seem to take notice of Church’s remarks, as she was too busy promoting her new album ‘Blown Away,’ which hit stores and iTunes today. Read our interview and see a full list of Blown Away Tour dates in the roundup below.
In addition to releasing her highly-anticipated studio album ‘Blown Away’ on Tuesday, Carrie Underwood announced a whopping 57 scheduled shows on her upcoming 2012 Blown Away Tour. Hunter Hayes will open dates across the country and Canada, with $1 from each ticket sold at North America shows benefiting Red Cross disaster relief.
Kip Moore‘s first gold single almost never happened. The singer — whose debut album ‘Up All Night’ is in stores April 24 — explains that he and songwriter Dan Couch were finished writing for the day, but pulled out the guitars again to write ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck.’ Hear him tell the whole entertaining story in the video below, which is brought to you exclusively by Taste of Country.
Blake Shelton made a late charge, but his song ‘Drink on It’ fell a few votes short during last week’s Showdown. ‘Good Girl’ by Carrie Underwood is now a three-time winner, meaning she needs just one more win to have the song retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
When ‘American Idol’ copycat programs began enjoying success worldwide, someone thought it’d be a great idea to put the 11 individual country winners against each other for a one-day event called ‘World Idol.’ Kelly Clarkson — season one ‘Idol’ winner — was the U.S. representative, and she did very well, finishing second to Norway’s Kurt Nilsen. Yes, that mop-topped boy on the right (who vaguely resembles Clay Aiken) is Nilsen.
While the majority of country music’s top men hide beneath cowboy hats, more and more are tossing the lid aside. Chris Young made the decision last year, but other stars like Keith Urban and Jake Owen have regularly showcased their long, flowing locks to adoring fans.
While Blake Shelton had a few good zingers during the ACM Awards on Sunday night, Brad Paisley quietly mocking Zac Brown while the two jammed out on ‘Whiskey’s Gone‘ might have been the funniest moment. Paisley played an April Fool’s joke on Brown, who seems to have taken the ribbing in stride. Although he does look like he’s ready to rip that beanie from the singer’s head, doesn’t he?
With the Texas tornadoes, the ACM Awards and the normal crazy things country artists see on any given day, there was plenty to tweet about this week — and the stars didn’t disappoint. Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton were prime examples of how dangerous tweeting can be, while the Band Perry and Chris Young gave examples of how embarrassing it can be to abuse your phone privileges.
Kelly Clarkson should write the book on how to transition from pop to country music. The singer has been showing up at country award shows and on collaborations for years, but finally submerged herself in country waters with a remake of her own ‘Mr. Know It All.’
Miranda Lambert didn’t care for the actor mocking country, but Reba McEntire posed for pictures with him. Justin Moore wasn’t shy about expressing his opinions, which were similar to Lambert’s — and now it’s your turn. What did you think of Ashton Kutcher’s appearance at the ACM Awards on April 1?
Carrie Underwood was first, Blake Shelton and Lionel Richie were last and very few dips were found in between. It was three straight hours of back-to-back performances that barely left time for a bathroom break on Sunday night. The 2012 ACM Awards felt more like an all-star jam than an awards ceremony, not that anyone is complaining.
