Kellie Pickler loves our troops! The country cutie headed to the Middle East for her fifth international USO tour, a fact she let us know via a recent tweet. Five tours? That’s dedication to our boys (and girls) in the service. Pickler is naturally perky, but the ‘Where’s Tammy Wynette’ singer expressed excitement about being able to visit the military bases overseas and perform. But that’s not the extent of her support. Heck, it’s not even the half of it.
Toss back those red solo cups, as Toby Keith has signed on to host the 2012 CMT Music Awards, which will air Wednesday, June 6 at 8PM ET on CMT and at CMT.com. The country superstar will be joined by actress Kristen Bell, who will co-host alongside him. We’re beyond excited to see how well Keith and Bell play off one another.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, country’s first couple who celebrated their first wedding anniversary last Monday (May 14), are big animal lovers. They incorporated their pets into their wedding ceremony and according to Shelton in a recent chat and photo spread in In Touch, they’ve rescued “at least 20 dogs, as well as cats and horses.” The irony that the duo lives in a converted hunting lodge in Oklahoma, and the fact that they are avid hunters, is not lost on them, either. However, their dedication to domesticated critters does offer insight into how they will fare with kids.
Garner High’s baseball team was eliminated from competition in the North Carolina state playoffs last night (May 11.) That means its most famous team member Scotty McCreery saw his high school baseball career end, as he is a graduating senior. Something tells us that he has a bright future ahead of him outside of baseball, being a Platinum-selling recording artist and all.
Life on the road has its ups and its downs, but lately, country stars have been dealing with accidents or acts of God involving their touring vehicles. A few days after singer Bucky Covington dealt with a crash, Justin Moore‘s crew had an incident with their bus.
Blake Shelton has had a few whirlwind, emotionally up and down few months. In 2012, he has dealt with the general commitment and chaos of ‘The Voice,’ with his team member Jermaine Paul winning the crown. On a sad note, his father passed away in January and his wife Miranda Lambert saw a close friend die. These events, combined with other professional pursuits involving releasing singles, hosting awards shows and appearing the cover of major magazines mean that he hasn’t had much time to catch a breath, much less reflect. Well, it seems like the singer found a few moments to let things sink in and to get a bit wistful. He even posted a heartfelt tweet about it.
Congrats are in order for Reba McEntire. The singer’s new series ‘Malibu Country’ has been picked up by ABC. The pilot was given the greenlight earlier this year and now the series is a go. Reba shared the good news via Twitter and confirmed that she’ll be working with comedienne Lily Tomlin, too.
Country’s newest darling Skylar Laine was sent packing on Season 11 of ‘American Idol‘ on Thursday (May 3), effectively ending the hope that a country artist would take the baton from Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery and start a consecutive streak on the reality competition series. Laine wasn’t crushed by being voted off, instead claiming she had a “gut feeling” that the end was near.
If Weight Watchers isn’t working for you, there’s an alternative, especially if you have strong faith. Pastor Steve Reynolds has developed a weight loss system called Bod4God, a diet and fitness program designed around the Christian faith.
What would Jesus do? He’d put down that doughnut, stat!
Skylar Laine made it to the ‘American Idol‘ Top 5 and for tonight’s episode (May 2), she had to sing a song by a ’60s artist and a song by a Britpop act. The spunky songstress from Mississippi is peaking when it matters and she could very well end up being the Season 11 winner.
