Dierks Bentley‘s father, Leon Bentley, died on Friday, June 1. The singer was forced to cancel shows beforehand, and in the wake of his dad’s death, tweeted the news to fans, thanking them for their support. He also took a moment to reflect on the fact that his father was his biggest influence in country music, since his dad’s listening habits turned him onto the genre as a young kid.
‘Duets,’ the new reality singing competition series starring Sugarland vocalist Jennifer Nettles and semi-country singer Kelly Clarkson, debuts this coming Thursday (May 24) in a two-hour premiere. The premise of the show is that established vocalists will partner with neophytes for –you guessed it- a duet! Rather than be judges or mentors, the celebs are performing alongside the hopefuls. Ahead of the big bow at 8 PM ET, the singing partners of each mentor have been revealed by ABC.
It appears that Jake Owen was arrested late Saturday night (May 5.) The singer shared a photo of himself cuffed and next to a cop car just after 11:30PM ET — mere hours after he was tossing back a beer with a buddy, happily and heartily celebrating Cinco de Mayo.
Carrie Underwood warned her Twitter followers that she was planning a sneak attack late last night (March 2), but she didn’t share the details right away. It left us wondering what exactly the ‘Good Girl’ singer had on her mind.
Martina McBride and her husband John have been married for nearly 24 years. That’s an eternity in this day and age, as recent stats indicate that nearly one out of every two marriages routinely ends in divorce. McBride shared the secret to her successful, two-decade marriage, revealing that it’s the small things that count.
Taylor Swift‘s Speak Now tour was a global, 98-city trek that we are still talking about even though it’s long over. That’s because it was one of the hottest tours of 2011, as the singer traveled the world, strumming her guitar, singing her confessional songs, covering regional artists from the city in which she was playing and inviting big name locals to perform on stage with her. All three of those elements contributed to the tour’s success.
What does a incredibly successful country superstar do to celebrate his good fortunes, which include notching his eighth No. 1 hit (‘Tattoos on This Town’), releasing one of the best-selling albums of the past two years (‘My Kinda Party’) and embarking on a sold-out tour? Well, fulfilling a dream like purchasing a nice chunk of property is great way to enjoy the fruits of your labor and that’s just what Jason Aldean did.
Husband and wife team Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton held hands while performing ‘America the Beautiful’ together before the kickoff of Super Bowl 2012. It was a show of solidarity, and perhaps a way to calm each other’s nerves, as the couple sang while the whole country watched. Many performers before them have flubbed when singing songs at sporting events, but Lambert and Shelton delivered a mistake-free rendition dosed with a little country twang.
Mark your calendars for Feb. 8, Miranda Lambert fans. That’s when the singer will make her acting debut on ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.’ While Lambert has appeared on NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ she did so in a performance capacity, so this is her scripted TV bow.
Someone better tell Taylor Swift to add a wing onto her house in order to store all of her awards, since she just added another one to her copious collection of trophies and statuettes. The singer won the Favorite Country Artist Award at the 2012 People’s Choice Awards, which were televised this evening (Jan. 11).
It feels like only yesterday that Blake Shelton‘s charge Dia Frampton was the runner up on the debut season of ‘The Voice.’ Well, season two is upon us, and Shelton is already raring to go and plotting his methods for another round. Shelton revealed that he will retain last season’s strategy of picking the singers with the most unique and different voices for his team. Obviously, Shelton has no interest in cultivating a poker face during the audition round.
Alan Jackson was the subject of last night’s ‘Backstory’ on GAC, and the singer’s relationship with wife Denise was a focal point of the episode. Alan and Denise have been married since 1979, so their relationship factors heavily in his career and his music.
