Chris Young Credits His Success to Strong Work Ethic

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.

Eric Church Kicks Out Overzealous Security Guard at Concert

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.

The show ended with one woman walking away with Church’s autograph on her boot — and one security guard being asked to leave before the final bow.

Faith Hill Returns to ‘Sunday Night Football,’ Continues Work on New Album

Why Was Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott Kissing a Frog Backstage at a Concert?

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.

Will Tim McGraw Join ‘A Star Is Born’ Remake?

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.

Brad Paisley Is Inspired By Eminem and Kanye West

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.
