Alan Jackson is preparing to release his first record on his own label, Alan Country Records, alongside EMI Records. And while it may be his first album on his own label, ‘Thirty Miles West’ is actually the star’s 17th studio release. ‘Thirty Miles West,’ out this summer, seems to be a personal album to Jackson
Yep, it’s still going on. If you’ve missed out on the ongoing mini-drama that is Ashton Kutcher and Justin Moore (with a touch of Miranda Lambert thrown in for kicks), allow us to summarize for you. At the ACM Awards on April 1, Kutcher got onstage to present Lambert with an award wearing an over-the-top red Western jacket and cowboy hat. He sang an unimpressive few bars of George Strait‘s ‘I Cross My Heart,’ which was a delight to the crowd, but not so much to a few country stars.
While most people were hitting Twitter yesterday, April 8, with Easter wishes and pictures of dyed eggs and family gatherings, Billy Ray Cyrus got his fans’ attention with a much more somber tweet.

After having vocal cord surgery at the end of last year, Keith Urban went on three weeks of extremely difficult vocal rest, during which time he couldn’t speak, sneeze, cough or communicate with his young daughters, who didn’t understand why their dad was silent.

Adkins has joined forces with the Louisiana-based company Hightower Enterprises to bring his celebrity name to Hightower’s Country Smoked Sausage.

We recently reported that Kenny Chesney unveiled the album artwork, title and track listing for his upcoming record, ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl.’ And while the name’s origin did have something to do with the beach, Chesney’s 13th studio album isn’t titled for the ocean or the aquatic life found within it. In fact, the name came as a result of a comment Chesney made about his lifestyle while visiting the Red Bar in Grayton Beach, Fla. with friends.

‘American Idol‘ has been featuring some of their successful alums in recent episodes, with names like Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina taking the stage as of late to show this season’s hopefuls just what a career in music can look like.
