TGIF! Now that it’s nearly May and cold weather is becoming a memory we want to soon forget, it’s time to crank up our favorite country hits and just… relax. What do you think is the best weekend jam — the country song most suited to help you take a load off on Friday and Saturday nights?
Johnny Cash would have turned 80-years-old this year, and though he isn’t alive to celebrate his birthday, the celebrations continue. On Friday night (April 20), Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theatre in Austin, Texas was packed nearly to capacity with eager fans, friends and family members who came together for a party in the late Man in Black’s honor.
Granger Smith will literally be ‘Sleeping on the Interstate‘ this week as he begins his second-annual 100-mile walk for the troops. The Texas-based singer-songwriter took off from south Austin on Sunday afternoon (April 15), followed closely behind by Texas state Governor Rick Perry, United States Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell and a supportive group of family, friends and fellow walkers.
The 2012 ACM Awards winners were elated to collect their prizes on the eve of country music’s biggest party. The annual awards show, hosted for a second time by Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton, airs live from Sin City — Las Vegas, Nevada — and pays tribute to the most famous stars in the genre. Natural, selecting the best of the best and naming winners is a daunting task.
Blake Shelton got the full package on Thursday night’s episode of ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.’ Not only did he perform his new single ‘Drink on It’ for the first time ever on television, but he got a chance to sit in as a guest on the show, making himself comfy in the gold chairs next to the famous desk as he dished on the upcoming Super Bowl, how married life is going and what romantic love story flick he hates to admit he watched.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is already the largest exhibition of its kind in the world, but the 2012 event is shaping up to be the biggest yet. On Monday, the HLSR committee announced the 22 acts that will entertain more than two million folks over the span of a month, and the lineup includes many of country’s hottest acts, including Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan and more.
Over the holidays, Brad Paisley realized that his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tour name, the Cowabunga! Tour, was a smidgen outdated. So, with the dawning of 2012, it was out with the old and in with the new! Paisley will embark on his freshly-named Virtual Reality World Tour on Jan. 12.
With her dazzling attire and stage-brightening smile, Dolly Parton would seemingly be an ideal celebrity to hit the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ set — she’s even got the costuming down already. Still, the ‘Jolene’ hitmaker does not think she’d be a good fit and has refused several offers to appear on the show.
Sadly, there will always be a few bad apples who attempt to make selfish gains from the misfortune of others. Thankfully, in this case, two women who made false claims in order to get free money following the Indiana State Fair stage collapse have been caught — and are being charged.
Though the year is still alive and kicking, rumors have already begun churning about hot happenings that may take place in 2012 — for instance, Taylor Swift‘s Vogue cover. According to talk around the web, the 22-year-old singer is said to be the face of the February issue.
It seems that Christmas came a little early for Lady Antebellum‘s Dave Haywood. With only a few days to spare in 2011, the guitarist officially got engaged to girlfriend Kelli Cashiola, who is a longtime friend of his.
