Just this week, iTunes finally revealed the full tracklisting for the long-awaited soundtrack to the highly-anticipated upcoming film, ‘The Hunger Games,’ and thankfully, a few country names made the list. We’ve known for quite some time now that Taylor Swift‘s collaboration with the Civil Wars, ‘Safe and Sound,’ would be included, and it’s actually at the top of the list.
The Civil Wars had quite a week. After winning two Grammy Awards at last night’s ceremony, one for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and one for Best Folk Album, the vintage duo also gave a stellar performance of their ever-popular tune, ‘Barton Hollow.’ Then, backstage after the performance, the female half of the duo, Joy Williams, spilled the beans that she and her husband/the band’s manager Nate Yetton have a bun in the oven.
Clay Walker will be hosting his third annual Chords of Hope benefit concert for multiple sclerosis on June 5 at Nashville’s 3rd and Lindsley. Walker was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in 1996 and has gone to great lengths since then to raise money to benefit others living with the autoimmune disease. The charity he formed, called Band Against MS (BAMS) strives to raise awareness and education about MS while also raising money to fund research that’s working toward a cure.
After a string of serious health issues and hospitalizations, 74-year-old Merle Haggard said in a statement on Wednesday that he’s “feeling good and ready to get back on the bus.” This comes after the Country Music Hall of Famer was hospitalized multiple times in the past few months, receiving treatment for double pneumonia, stomach ulcers, the removal of eight polyps from his colon and esophageal diverticulitis.
Yep, it’s true that Brad Paisley has been taking some humorous shots at Paul McCartney‘s most recent album title. At the same time, it’s also true that Sir McCartney selected a moniker he most certainly assumed might take some flack from the music community. One can hardly land on a title like ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ without first thinking through the potential ramifications (and public commentaries).
Eric Church has never been one to hoist up the cost of his concert tickets to pad his pockets. In fact, he says that goes against his entire philosophy as an artist, as his goal has always been to get more people to his shows rather than more money per ticket sale. With this mentality, then, it’s not surprising that the Grammy-nominated singer is so peeved about what’s been happening at shows all along his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour. Church has some choice words for the big ticket brokers that have been purchasing his tickets and scalping them to fans.
Miranda Lambert may have been comfortable singing in front of most of the United States at once during the Super Bowl, but making her big-screen debut as an actress is an entirely different story. Lambert’s acting premiere on ‘Law and Order: Special Victims Unit’ will air tomorrow (Feb. at 10:00PM ET on NBC. Talking to Country Weekly about the experience, Lambert admits she was extremely nervous while shooting.
For as much fun as Randy Travis seemed to be having right after last weekend’s Super Bowl, one can only imagine this week has been nothing short of miserable for the country star who was arrested early Monday morning for public intoxication. Now, according to a police report obtained by TMZ, more news has hit the scene (and the fan) relating to Travis’ case. It seems he was drunk in his car in front of a Baptist church in Sanger, Texas, because he had just been in a fight with his girlfriend.
Country sweetheart and Lindale's own Miranda Lambert has been in the news a good bit lately, and most of the headlines have revolved around the personal tragedies she’s encountered in the past couple of weeks. The ‘Baggage Claim’ singer had to deal with the death of her father-in-law, her childhood friend and even her beloved dog, Dixie. Though Lambert has been dealing with these losses, she kept most of her On Fire Tour in tact, but the emotion of everything overcame her at a Huntsville, Ala. show Thursday night. There, Lamber broke down crying in the middle of her nostalgic hit ‘The House That Built Me.’
Dierks Bentley announced that he’s unrolling more U.S. dates for his Country and Cold Cans Tour. After touring around the States last fall with his tour, Bentley went international with a leg in Canada and then a set of dates in Australia. Now, the multi-platinum artist says he doesn’t want the tour to end just yet.
With the 2012 Grammy Awards fast approaching, we’re learning more every day about who will take the iconic stage to host, perform, present and (hopefully) win. The Recording Academy announced today that Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley are confirmed presenters for this year’s awards show. The two country stars will be joined by Drake and Gwyneth Paltrow, with more presenters to be announced in the coming weeks.
