As it begins to heat up outside and the snow and ice turn to green grass and fresh blooms, artists will churn out new country music releases for March 2012 faster than you can say “bring on spring break!”
Blake Shelton got the full package on Thursday night’s episode of ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.’ Not only did he perform his new single ‘Drink on It’ for the first time ever on television, but he got a chance to sit in as a guest on the show, making himself comfy in the gold chairs next to the famous desk as he dished on the upcoming Super Bowl, how married life is going and what romantic love story flick he hates to admit he watched.
There’s no question that Keith Urban is one of the most famous Australian country singers, well, ever. Therefore, it’s no big surprise that he snagged not one, but two awards at a Country Music Association of Australia event on Saturday, adding to his huge collection of accolades.
The Academy of Country Music took a different approach to naming the nominations for the 2012 ACM Awards, inciting a first-time digital press conference via their Facebook page, as opposed to simply posting a list of hopefuls. And our favorite East Texas girl received two big nominations. See the complete list of nominees after the jump.
It’s really happening. Carrie Underwood really is releasing a new album, and the proof is in the first single! Underwood just announced in a special video message that ‘Good Girl’ will be the lead-off track from her forthcoming new record.
It appears that Jason Aldean isn’t quite done bringing the party via his ‘My Kinda Party’ album. The famed dirt road-lovin’ singer is reportedly dropping one more song from the record, ‘Flyover States,’ as his next single.
As if you needed another reason to grab a bag of chips and tune into the Super Bowl, it was just announced that country music’s hottest couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert will be opening up the big game with a duet performance, making the game of the year even more worthwhile for country music fans.
Singer-songwriter Jason Isbell is mad at Dierks Bentley — really mad. Twang Nation first spotted the Muscle Shoals, Ala. artist ranting and raving via his Twitter page, accusing Bentley of plagiarizing his song ‘In a Razor Town’ to create the chart-topper ‘Home,’ and he doesn’t seem prepared to back down any time soon.
Tim and Faith have a set; Taylor Swift has one, too. But for some reason, ‘Own the Night’ trio Lady Antebellum don’t think they’re worthy of having dolls made to look like miniature versions of themselves just yet. In a new feature for the Wall Street Journal, Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood remained modest while dishing on toys and tours.
Pop star Kelly Clarkson found herself in hot water with many of her fans when she shared her support for Presidential candidate Ron Paul via her Twitter page, but thankfully for her, it was Blake Shelton to the rescue. The ‘Honey Bee’ hitmaker swooped in to say that he loves to hear Clarkson’s point of view and would even give someone a good smack if needed.
Sadly, there will always be a few bad apples who attempt to make selfish gains from the misfortune of others. Thankfully, in this case, two women who made false claims in order to get free money following the Indiana State Fair stage collapse have been caught — and are being charged.
