Brad Paisley graciously allowed E!’s ‘Opening Act’ reality show to use that very slot on the Mountain View, California date of his tour. Singer Tanner Patrick auditioned with Lady Antebellum‘s ‘Need You Now’ in order to earn the coveted opening position. It felt like the aspiring singer was happy covering a pretty pop song that also happened to be a country song, as opposed to his desire to play pop-country. By the end of the episode, he had a renewed appreciation for the genre.
Poor Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum. The beautiful singer is battling jet lag, but she has a pretty common cure for those long sleepless nights when your internal clock is out of whack and you’re not on your proper or familiar sleep schedule. Scott, who along with her Lady A bandmates is a pitch person for Lipton Iced Tea, fueled up on caffeine to try and level out.
Days after the news that his “raise your glass” (well, cup) anthem ‘Red Solo Cup’ had gone double platinum, moving two million digital downloads and becoming the biggest-selling song of his career, Toby Keith tweeted that his new single ‘I Like Girls That Drink Beer’ will drop on July 24. He’s keeping that beverage-consuming motif going, ain’t he?
Tim McGraw is “tired.” Sort of! The ‘Truck Yeah’ singer appears to be pretty meticulous about his body and his workout regimens. The singer shared another shirtless photo of his buff bod, this time mid-workout with a large tire as his equipment.
Bret Michaels recruited some big names –ranging from country legend Loretta Lynn to Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd to Rascal Flatts‘ Jay DeMarcus, among others- to appear on his new album, ‘Bret Michaels and Friends: Get You Rock On.’ The album drops in September, but to hear Michaels speak about it, he’d like to have it be an ongoing thing, since he has so many friends in high places. He even revealed that he’d like Toby Keith to be part of a future installment of this series, provided there is one.
What does Taylor Swift have that, say, peers such as Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Adele don’t? The official title of ‘Highest Paid Celebrity Under 30,’ that’s what. Swift was crowned with this accolade by Forbes, which annually estimates and tallies the earnings of celebrities. The singer topped the overall list, edging out many of her contemporary, popular music peers by collecting approximately $57 million in income between May 2011 and May 2012.
Stylish women can get creative in a pinch when they don’t have eyeliner and need it. Some have even tried using substitutes like Sharpie markers in situations when the real thing isn’t available. Country sweetheart Taylor Swift does not condone or endorse such behavior, even though she admits to having done it!
You can’t keep a ‘Good Girl’ down. Congrats to country queen Carrie Underwood on yet another platinum certification, this time for ‘Good Girl,’ the first single from ‘Blown Away.’ According to a press release from Underwood’s reps, the song has been certified platinum by the RIAA, meaning it has sold more than 1 million digital downloads.
Toby Keith, Brad Paisley and Zac Brown Band have partnered with ACM Lifting Lives for Tickets-for-Charity, a new program that offers fans the best seats in the house at summer gigs while benefiting both Lifting Lives and other charitable initiatives personally supported by the artists.
Ladies, did your knees buckle yet? Tim McGraw tweeted a photo of himself, shirtless and showing off his sculpted chest, ripped abs and rock hard arms. At 45, McGraw puts men half his age to shame with that physique.
Scotty McCreery is an exercise in contrasts. On one hand, he is a country music megastar, having racked up platinum sales, toured the world and performed on both breakfast and late night TV programs with increasing frequency. On the other, he just graduated high school and is preparing for college. McCreery will begin his freshman year at North Carolina State University in the fall. But he’s not wasting any time and is diving right in. He’s already started decorating his new house, which is located just a few miles from the school’s main campus.
