In 2010, Alan Jackson and his family received the news no one ever wants to hear. His wife, Denise Jackson, had been diagnosed with cancer. In an episode of GAC’s ‘Backstory’ last year, the ’Chattahoochee’ singer confessed what a difficult time it was for him to see his high school sweetheart suffering, saying, “To see her go through that, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through. I’ve been taking care of her since she was 16, but I couldn’t do anything to help her. It was tough.”
George Strait hasn’t been writing and releasing music since he was born, but if he had, and he had one No.1 hit every year of his life, he would be right where he is now. The 59-year-old country king is celebrating his astounding 59th No. 1 hit with ‘Love’s Gonna Make It Alright’ from his September 2011 Grammy-nominated record, ‘Here for a Good Time.’
This morning (March 20), Keith Urbantweeted about a video that he ran across on YouTube that impacted him. Interestingly enough, it was a cover of one of his songs — done entirely by a 10-year-old boy named Carson Lueders. With his acoustic guitar in tow and his brother Jackson keeping a steady beat behind him on a drum kit, Lueders performed Urban’s ‘For You’ from the Navy SEALs film ‘Act of Valor.’
Saturday night (March 17) Miranda Lambert and her touring crew hit Broomfield, Colo.’s 1st Bank Event Center. During her show, Lambert invited another powerful female vocalist — and fellow ‘The Voice‘ mentor — to take the stage with her. Surprising the audience, Kelly Clarkson emerged and offered up her recent single ‘Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)’ from her fifth studio album, 2011′s ‘Stronger,’ as well as Lambert’s own ‘Gunpowder and Lead’ with the help of the blonde country starlet herself.

If you listen to country radio at all, and we know you do, you know to watch this video clip at your own risk. Toby Keith performed his can’t-ever-get-it-out-of-your-head catchy hit ‘Red Solo Cup’ today on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ and the audience seemed to love the creative drinking anthem. Keith even cut the music right in the middle of the song to really play up the part where he proclaims that the cup is more like a friend to him than anything.
The little country redhead who’s earned her stripes and the name ‘Little Reba’ on this season of ‘American Idol‘ stuck to her guns this week, chose her own song and ended up wowing the judges. Laine, who brought it last week with Whitney Houston‘s ‘Where Do Broken Hearts Go,’ had to perform a song this week from the year she was born: 1994.
Carrie Underwood recently covered SELF magazine for the fourth time, and in her interview the beautiful country starlet opened up about some of her secrets for staying healthy and happy, as well as revealing that she’s still starry-eyed for hockey playing husband Mike Fisher.
