Ronnie Dunn has been an active Facebook and Twitter user in recent months, especially now more than ever with the presidential race taking place. While Dunn hasn’t flat out said who he is pulling for to be the next president, he does say enough to get his fans buzzing.
“Deer meat and turkey meat and anything wild is about as good as you can get,” Rhett Akins, an avid outdoorsman and hunter, tells Taste of Country when speaking of his wild turkey breast recipe. “The No. 1 main reason this recipe is cool is because you went out and got it yourself. You didn’t go to the grocery store and buy it. You spent hours and sometimes days or weeks trying to get the turkey. So it’s cool to know that you went out and did it on your own, like back in the old days.”
Although we are only four months into the new year, 2012 is already shaping up to be one heck of a year for Sunny Sweeney. In addition to going into the new year as a happy newlywed, the singer-songwriter is also gearing up to hit the road with several country hunks this summer — Gary Allan, Josh Thompson, Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore and Eric Paslay — on the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour. But that’s not where things stop for Sweeney. As she continues to criss-cross the country, she will also begin working on her sophomore album on Republic Nashville.
Next weekend (Sunday, April 1), the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from Las Vegas. Many of the usual suspects fill out the nominees for the 2012 show, including Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum and Kenny Chesney. But one name missing from the duo category this year will be Brooks and Dunn‘s Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks following their public parting of ways in 2010.
Taylor Swift and George Strait split the No. 1 title this week, as their songs top the two main country singles charts. Swift’s ‘Ours’ takes the leading slot on Billboard, while Strait’s ‘Love’s Gonna Make It Alright’ snatches the No. 1 position on Mediabase / Country Aircheck.
The lyrics to Jake Owen‘s latest single ‘Alone With You’ were a bit of a “puzzle,” according to JT Harding, one of the song’s three writers. But the end result was a beautiful masterpiece that gave the singer yet another fast and steady ride up the country singles chart.
The past several months have been quite challenging for Rodney Atkins, as he continues to go through a highly-publicized divorce with his soon-to-be ex-wife, Tammy Jo. Atkins filed for divorce after 13 years of marriage following a late-night argument which ended on a very sour note — with Atkins getting arrested. His wife made serious allegations against him, claiming domestic abuse, though the singer has since been cleared of all charges.
This week, the Band Perry head overseas for their latest tour of the U.K. While the trip isn’t the sibling trio’s first time playing for their international fans, it will feel just as special this time around — if not moreso, given that their upcoming concerts are sold out.
Twenty-one just might turn out to be Eric Church‘s new lucky number. Church, who is currently criss-crossing the country on his first headlining trek, the Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour, has officially sold out a total of 21 shows, as his upcoming May 19 performance at the legendary Red Rocks Amplitheatre in Morrison, Colo. has just reached capacity.
