Ever since we first met Skylar Laine, her ‘American Idol‘ performances have exploded like rock-infused country music firecrackers. She stomps around the stage, with a spring in her step and a twang in her voice like a mini Reba. While we love when she does her thang, it was time for us to see and hear something different and new from her.
Carrie Underwood warned her Twitter followers that she was planning a sneak attack late last night (March 2), but she didn’t share the details right away. It left us wondering what exactly the ‘Good Girl’ singer had on her mind.
Reba McEntire was the subject of Friday night’s (March 2) NBC documentary series ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ As the star of the show, McEntire was given the opportunity to trace her ancestral roots back several centuries in America and England and chart her familial course. The fire-haired singer did discover things that pained her greatly, such as the fact that one of her great grandfathers was a slave owner while another was an indentured servant himself.
Poor Taylor Swift. She really got ‘Punk’d’ by Justin Bieber in the brand new season of the hidden camera series that MTV is exhuming as of March 29. A teaser clip of the Biebs punking his pal Swift has surfaced online, and while it’s hilarious to the viewer and those in on the prank, it’s not as quite funny to Swift, as a look of genuine terror crosses her face. She appears completely concerned about the events that unfold in the forthcoming episode.
Alan Jackson remains one of the most beloved artists of the country genre. Want proof? Well, the superstar broke the all-time attendance record at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo on Thursday night (Feb. 23), drawing 17,000 fans. Jackson has played this particular event 15 times throughout his career, but this week’s crowd was the largest he’d ever performed before.
With Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift taking roles on the small screen and in films, respectively, it’s no surprise that another country singer might get in on the fun. Jason Aldean has had his interest in acting aroused. But he will look before he leaps and he will not shoot first and think later. In fact, he would be open to easing into acting to make sure he likes it. It has to be the right fit and Aldean will only take a role judiciously, not impulsively. He’s well within his rights to do just that.
That is what Taylor Swift said more than once to Ellen DeGeneres on her namesake show this morning (Feb. 21) while promoting her animated film ‘The Lorax’ with hottie and supposed boyfriend Zac Efron. While they would make quite an attractive couple, Swift repeatedly shot down the rumors, though Ellen kept jokingly referring to them as a couple throughout their interview.
Rascal Flatts fans will want to plan a trip to their local multiplex on Thursday, April 5. That’s when the country power trio, in conjunction with AEG Live and NCM Fathom, will present a special, one-night-only theater event across the nation. The Flatts on the big screen? Does it get any better than that?
Neal McCoy will release his new album ‘XII’ on March 6 after a five-year hiatus. The album, produced by country couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, is McCoy’s 12th studio effort. The singer just shared the track listing for the album, along with some accolades from his high-profile production team.
Dierks Bentley‘s got a generous heart and a pointed interest in supporting our troops and their families, especially those in need. The country singer gifted a military family who needed a little help with a $50,000 donation on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Wednesday, and he was met with a hug from a uniformed officer and his wife, who shed tears of joy over Bentley’s financial contribution on their behalf.
Taylor Swift‘s ‘Safe & Sound’ is the first song from ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, and the accompanying video features Swift walking in the barren woods, wearing a loose-fitting white dress. She’s ditched her signature glam ringlets and lipstick and looks like a Plain Jane as she navigates a lonely trail. It’s winter and there are no leaves on the trees. Swift is singing and looking around in apprehension as she walks through the desolate landscape on bare feet, no less. It’s easily one of Swift’s artsy-est videos of her career, and she doesn’t utilize much in the way of plot or props to effectively tell the story.
Looking resplendent in a black and gold strapless gown, Carrie Underwood welcomed her duet partner, Tony Bennett, to the 2012 Grammy Awards stage with quite an intro. She called him “the best new artist of all time,” since he continues to reach a new generation of fans year after year with his music.
