If we’re honest, we’ve probably all caught ourselves bemoaning the future of this or that, whether our critiques are directed at a genre of music, politics or even an entire generation. While many veteran artists often become the biggest naysayers for the future of their beloved genres as soon as they’re taken over by a ton of “kids,” Merle Haggard doesn’t buy all that. In a recent interview with the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, Haggard said he thinks things in the country music realm are on the up.
While both Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks are highly celebrated names in country music, they’re also parents, which does more to dictate their schedule at the moment than audience demand. However, with their youngest daughter set to graduate high school in 2014, the couple are starting to let themselves dream about life as empty-nesters.
Eli Young Band have literally seen their career catapult onto center stage in the past few months. After their single ‘Crazy Girl’ became their first No.1 hit, the four-man country outfit snagged an ACM Award for Song of the Year with the same smash hit, making an underdog story to be remembered. But even in the face of so many great things at once, the guys are not about to forget who it was that helped them get to this point.
Wade Bowen is gearing up to host his 14th Annual Wade Bowen Celebrity Golf Tournament and Concert on May 6-7 in his hometown of Waco. The ‘Saturday Night‘ singer hosts the tournament each year to benefit the Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children, an organization that works with adults and children who have been victims of crime.
It has seriously been a good year for Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. The two have not only netted more awards than they can likely count but they were also both recognized just for being strikingly good-looking by People magazine. After Shelton was crowned Country Music’s Hottest Guy by People Country, his stunning wife just landed in People’s most beautiful women of 2012 issue.
As classic films like ‘Footloose’ and ‘Dirty Dancing’ come rolling off the line in updated versions (with characters who weren’t born when the originals were made), some are wondering if ‘Grease’ might be up next for a remake. The 1978 film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John seems to have all the trappings of a love story just ready for a facelift. And John says she knows exactly who would be the best person to fill her dancing shoes as Sandy: Taylor Swift.
Miranda Lambert hails from Lindale, Texas, which we all know is in Cowboy country when it comes to the NFL. Even if she were to go south a bit, we would expect Lambert to be pulling for the Houston Texans. But now, strangely, the ‘Over You’ singer is actually a shareholder of Wisconsin’s Green Bay Packers. We wonder if this will get the southern gal on her feet rooting for a team from the north.
It looks like Miranda Lambert‘s Pistol Annies let the blonde starlet’s husband in on a photo shoot this week. Blake Shelton made this photo his Twitter pic, and fans quickly tweeted their praises. But Shelton never offered any explanation at all. It’s not Halloween, so they could have just been showing off how bad they can truly be (is that a bike under Angaleena Presley’s fishnet-clad leg?).
It seems that Taylor Swift and her friends love a good dress up party now and then. But these girls aren’t donning black miniskirts and red high heels for a night on the town. No, they’re more likely to be found in ribbons and lace, looking more like something out of ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ than ‘Sex and the City.’
Brad Paisley will be making a special television appearance tonight (April 25), but you won’t be seeing the star in person. The ‘Celebrity’ singer will transform into a cartoon to make a cameo on the Comedy Central hit show ‘South Park’ at 10PM ET.
As a touring country artist, Jake Owen has long known that he has a steady base of fans interested in his music. But the ‘Alone With You’ singer didn’t fully comprehend just how interested those fans would be in every detail of his private life, including his proposal, engagement and the engagement ring he gave to fiancee Lacey Buchanan.
Tyson Zimmer, a 7-year-old boy in Nebraska who is dying of brain cancer, is a huge Jason Aldean fan. The little boy with the sweet smile told Nebraska’s KOLN-TV, “I sing ‘Big Green Tractor’ because that’s my favorite.” As family and friends have watched Zimmer battle the horrible disease, they rallied around him, joining in a Twitter campaign to request that Aldean send the young boy a message.
