For his upcoming ‘Duets II’ project, Tony Bennett made sure to line up plenty of stars from the rock and pop world, including John Mayer, Lady Gaga, and Amy Winehouse — but he invited a few friends from the country charts, too.
These days, Chris Young is riding high with his fourth consecutive number one single, ‘Tomorrow,’ and a new hit album, ‘Neon.’ But life wasn’t always so rosy for the onetime ‘Nashville Star’ winner.
In fact, before Young released his first hit single, ‘Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song),’ he had to deal with the news that his father had been diagnosed with cancer. Though he’s healthy now, dealing with those highs and lows has helped keep Young grounded during the more glamorous moments of his career.
We already knew Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, and Taylor Swift had big years and now we know they stand to celebrate by cleaning up at the 2011 CMA Awards, where each of them have just been honored with multiple nominations in this year’s pool of potential winners.
The nominees were announced Tuesday at a pair of live events. Jake Owen and the Band Perry revealed the nominations for five categories during their joint appearance on ‘Good Morning America,’ then Jerrod Niemann and Thompson Square handled the rest from the Ryman in Nashville later in the morning.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a musician who doesn’t appreciate his or her fans — without them, after all, no one would be able to record or tour. But during a recent concert, rising country star Eric Church demonstrated just how much his fans mean to him.
She still has a ways to go before she matches the level of sports theme longevity enjoyed by Hank Williams, Jr., but when ‘Sunday Night Football’ returns on September 11, Faith Hill will be back, too.
Hill, returning for her fifth year with the show, has recorded a new version of the theme song, ‘Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,’ which sets football-themed lyrics to Joan Jett’s ‘I Hate Myself for Loving You.’
With millions of records sold in armloads of Grammys to their credit, the members of Lady Antebellum are certified country music royalty — so perhaps vocalist Hillary Scott was feeling like a princess the other night in New Hampshire when she met a frog backstage.
And even though Scott’s already found her prince in fiance Chris Tyrell, who can blame a girl for wanting to see if magic will strike twice?
Clint Eastwood is famous in Hollywood for being a fast, no-nonsense director who brings his films in on time and under budget, but his next project — a remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ — is having trouble just getting started.
Eastwood initially cast Beyoncé in the lead, but her pregnancy seems likely to keep her from making the planned February 2012 start date, and his preferred leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio, has reportedly turned down the role. According to CMT’s sources, DiCaprio’s loss could end up being Tim McGraw‘s gain.
Adkins invited members of the Middle Tennessee Big Brothers Big Sisters organization out to his farm last week, and they spent the day on his lake, enjoying activities like swimming, paddle boating, and, yes, fishing.
The last time Kelly Clarkson cut a duet with a country star, the result was her number one hit with Jason Aldean, ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay,’ so it’s only natural that, during a recent Web chat, she was asked if she’d consider teaming up with any other artists.
The top of the country singles charts is familiar territory for Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood — their duet ‘Remind Me,’ currently number one, is his 20th chart-topper, and her 14th.
But even if the song produced predictable results for the duo, it started with a burst of unusual inspiration. As Paisley tells it, the idea for ‘Remind Me’ came from watching the sort of character acting commonly heard in hip-hop.
