America has been a nation of heavy hearts since a gunman opened fire on a movie theater during a midnight showing of ‘The Dark Night Rises.’ In light of the unspeakable tragedy, Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw had an emotional stopover in Denver when they played the Sports Authority Field on Saturday night (July 21).
Just because the rest of us have been wearing out Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Blown Away’ album all summer doesn’t mean that the country star likes to listen to her own music. The fact that ‘Blown Away’ sat perched atop the Billboard country chart for five straight weeks doesn’t seem to phase her either. In a recent interview with Australia’s ‘The Morning Show,’ Underwood admitted that she hasn’t listened to the record for a while.
Even if you’re not a fan of Showtime’s hit series, ‘Weeds,’ you’re probably familiar with its theme song, ‘Little Boxes.’ Even hearing a few bars of the little ditty will have you humming the tune all day long. During ‘Weeds” second and third seasons, a number of artists covered the catchy tune for the show. Now, it’s about to become even more of an earworm since Dierks Bentley has agreed to record a country version of the song for the series’ eighth season!
For the past year, attorneys have been preparing to battle over who is responsible for a stage rigging error that caused a stage to collapse at the Indiana State Fair in August, killing seven people and injuring dozens before a Sugarland concert. Unfortunately, now it will be much more difficult to reach a verdict in the case, which goes to trial on April 1, 2014. Last weekend, steel cables that were part of the stage rigging system were stolen from the warehouse where they were being stored with other wreckage from the collapse.
It’s hard to imagine tough-as-nails country gal Miranda Lambert getting so sick that she has to cancel shows, but unfortunately, that’s exactly what has happened this week. The normally energetic country star was slated to play at Jam in the Valley in Varysburg, N.Y. tonight (July 6), but according to Jam in the Valley officials, the ‘Over You’ hitmaker “has taken ill and has canceled all performances for this weekend as per her doctor’s orders.”
Taylor Swift had a starstruck July 4, and no, we’re not talking about fireworks or the stars on the grand old flag. Country music’s sweetheart celebrated her Independence Day by taking a (romantic?) walk on the beach with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Patrick and going sailing with several members of the Kennedy family in Massachusetts.
Every summer, thousands of country music fans gather in Enterprise, Ala. for BamaJam, a three-day, three-night music festival. This year’s line-up was guaranteed to be a winner, but a bad storm blew in and threatened to derail opening night — until Tim McGraw stepped in.
Lauren Alaina may have given her dad the best Father’s Day gift ever this weekend. The former ‘American Idol’ contestant called him on stage to accompany her on the guitar as she sang a few songs. The real gift — for concert attendees and Alaina’s father — was their father/daughter rendition of ‘When You Say Nothing at All.’
Last Sunday (June 10), Little Big Town‘s 6th Annual Ride for the Cure event took place in Franklin and Columbia, Tenn. Unfortunately, the motorcycle ride was canceled due to a bad rainstorm, but the popular country act still managed to help raise more than $55,000 to help research cures for cancer, Leukemia, and AIDS.
Judging by the country music fans hanging out at the CMA Music Festival in shorts and tank tops last weekend, summertime is definitely upon us. And what’s better than listening to new summer tunes during the warm weather months? To give you the perfect soundtrack for the summer, country star Jake Owen will release a ‘Summer Jam’ EP sometime during the season.
Zac Brown Band is going to take the stage for a gigantic audience on July 9, when they play the State Farm Home Run Derby. The event is part of the Major League Baseball All-Star game, but before the best of baseball players face off against each other in a nine-inning game, the league’s biggest hitters will see who can hit the most home runs. The derby will air live on ESPN, and Zac Brown Band will be the lucky country stars to play their hits for a national audience.
Despite 22 No. 1 hits and dozens of accolades, Kenny Chesney is preparing to embark on what could be his most successful journey yet: the Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw. Propelling his journey forward will be his 13th studio album, ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl,’ which hits stores on June 19.
