We’re used to seeing Blake Shelton on primetime TV, with his role as a coach on ‘The Voice,’ which catapulted him to mainstream fame. But his roots will always be in country music. Instead of offering sarcastic and hilarious comments to hopefuls on the reality singing competition or ribbing with his co-stars, Shelton took the stage at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1) to co-host and to perform. He took a break from making jokes and entertaining the crowd with one-liners to slow things down and perform his new single ‘Drink on It.’
Carrie Underwood opened the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1) by performing her brand new single ‘Good Girl’ for the first time live on TV. What a way to start the show and what a way for the singer to debut her latest hit, which will appear on her forthcoming album ‘Blown Away,’ due one month from today. The singer set the tone for the evening with her fierce performance.
‘American Idol‘ Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery returned to the stage tonight (March 29) to perform his twangy, uptempo single ‘Water Tower Town.’ It feels like only yesterday that the singer was competing in the thick of the competition each and every week. Now, with a hit record and hard-earned status as a country superstar, McCreery really has grown by leaps and bounds in the space of a year.
Taylor Swift returned home from the other side of the world today, having just wrapped her Speak Now Tour overseas. While she was delivering her songs to fans in far away lands, the pop/country songstress debuted a brand new one, ‘Eyes Open‘ from ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, live.
Blake Shelton is a busy man, but he’s busting his butt now, releasing albums, touring and appearing on ‘The Voice’ so — as he puts it — he and his wife Miranda Lambert can “relax and not have to tour until we’re on our walkers.” Clearly, Shelton and Lambert plan to enjoy their twilight years by taking gigs and socking away cash now so they don’t have to stumble on stage when they are past their prime… although it is hard to imagine their talents aging or expiring.
Rascal Flatts want to expand their rock solid brand with good eats. The power trio is planning to open a chain of restaurants this year, following in the footsteps of fellow country acts like Kenny Rogers and Toby Keith, who have successfully owned and operated eateries through the years.
Jason Aldean‘s video for ‘Fly Over States’ falls right in line with the song’s lyrics, which celebrate the people and the places that have been categorized as “fly over states.” Aldean’s song and his video aim to shoot down the notion that Middle America is simply the middle of nowhere.
Kenny Chesney fans will want to tune into the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 1. The superstar is planning a major reveal at the show, choosing to perform the first single from his brand new album, according to a representative from his label BNA.
There’s two sides to every story and to country superstar Carrie Underwood. In the video for her brand new single ‘Good Girl,’ Underwood plays the role of the good, wholesome girl as well as that of the rebel. The one thing that unites the two sides of her personality and the parts she plays? A deep, unwavering love of gorgeous, dangerously high and infinitely stylish heels. What gal doesn’t love a pair of fab shoes?
Professionally, Kelly Clarkson flirts with country music, having released a twangy version of ‘Mr. Know It All‘ and dueting with Jason Aldean. Personally, she’s always celebrated the single life. Until now. Though Clarkson may not have gone full-fledged country with her music, she has with her boyfriend. The pop hitmaker is reportedly dating Brandon Blackstock — manager of Blake Shelton and stepson of Reba McEntire.
Miranda Lambert‘s go-to jewelry designer is obviously Karen Lindner. She created the gorgeous, choker-style necklace that Lambert wears in her new video for ‘Over You,’ as well as the jewelry that the singer and her bridal party wore at the reception for her May 2011 wedding to Blake Shelton.
