Chris Stapleton has taken over the mainstream music scene by storm, for good reason. He for sure isn't a new artist, but is just now getting the recognition he deserves. His style is like none other and don't even get me started on that voice! If you don't have his Traveller album, get it right now! There's not a bad song on the record. Everyone is on the Stapleton train right now and it looks lik
It's music's biggest night of the year! The 55th Annual Grammy Awards air tonight on CBS and lots of country stars will be on hand for the big event. Earlier this week, rumors were floating around that Grammy staffers were told to try and keep country divas Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift apart. They, allegedly, don't get along at all and producers are wanting to ease the tension at the show.
Chad has beaten me up on more than one occasion for being "grumpy" about the Grammy Awards and claiming no country fan cares. And, I do believe for a number of years that was correct. The NARAS voters always looked at country like you'd look at a piece of melted gum on your shoe, or boot. But, in recent years, the Grammys have treated Nashville like a well heeled (there's that foot refer
It's been revealed pop star Whitney Houston died from accidental drowning, but there were other contributing factors, including heart disease and chronic cocaine use. Houston died February 11th, the day before the Grammy Awards, at the Beverly Hills Hilton just hours before she was to appear at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party at the hotel.
In 2009, hip-hop star Chris Brown was arrested and charged with assault after beating up his then-girlfriend, pop superstar Rihanna. Flash forward three years and, whaddya know, Brown is performing not once, but twice on the Grammy Awards telecast.
Although the very great loss of pop star Whitney Houston loomed over Sunday night's Grammy awards, another name caught my eye in the "In Memoriam" section of the show. I saw the name "Hazel Dickens" and I started to wonder where in the world had I heard that name before?
At this writing, I am playing "Springsteen" by Eric Church. Ironically, The Boss kicked off last night's Grammy Awards in Los Angle-Ease. One could say that, with a few exceptions, it was all downhill from there.
Sometimes, a movie comes along where the music and the story come together perfectly; Joel and Ethan Coen's 2001 masterpiece O, Brother Where Art Thou? is one of the best of the past decade. Not only did the film gross more than respectable numbers, its soundtrack became the breakout star. Th...
If you tune into The WBKR Waking Crew, you know that Moon and I argue about the Grammys everytime they roll around. I love the Grammy Awards. Moon doesn't think anyone watches or cares (though I do want to mention that even he DVR'd last night's show! Lol!) And last night's show was AWESOME! And, as usual, there were some hits and some gigantic misses! But the biggest "hit" of all,
