Gretchen Wilson may not be one of country music’s top female vocalists any longer. No, she’s transcended the genre, in a way Alison Krauss did hers years ago. Except Wilson’s not getting any of the recognition, until maybe now. ‘One Good Friend’ is a brilliant ballad about the meaning of friendship. However, it’s perhaps too professional to fit between the stars on modern country radio — a problem Krauss, and more recently Vince Gill, know very well.
Could Blake Shelton‘s days on ‘The Voice’ be numbered? The singer says he wants to be a part of the show forever, but at the same time says he’s not real happy about the upcoming season. Find out why in the Daily Roundup. Also, watch Kenny Chesney‘s steamy video for ‘Come Over,’ and see a picture of his adorable new puppy.
Drama, drama, drama … Lauren Alaina aired her boy drama for her followers on Twitter last night, but her fans tell us she has good reason to be upset. Tempers also flared at a recent Lady Antebellum concert, and one fan left missing a digit. Really. Find both of these stories, plus reviews of albums from Edens Edge and Josh Turner, in the Daily Roundup below.
The 2012 CMT Music Awards began with a batch of country and pop collaborations before settling into a Nashville-based broadcast, featuring Music City’s best. Rascal Flatts closed the show with one of the all-time greatest mainstream rock bands however, inviting Journey on stage to sing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.’
For the second time in less than a month, two rows of fans will go home from an award show picking confetti out of their hair and outfits following a Carrie Underwood performance. At the end of ‘Good Girl’ at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, it rained gold on unsuspecting fans below.
Toby Keith, Zac Brown Band, Jamey Johnson, Darius Rucker and Willie Nelson all have one thing in common: country music (Hey — if there’s something else, we don’t know about it). The country supergroup took the stage halfway through the 2012 CMT Music Awards to perform Nelson’s ‘Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.’
Beach balls, bikinis and beer bottles … it must be Little Big Town and their new single, ‘Pontoon.’ The country music quartet brought a full-size boat to the stage of the 2012 CMT Music Awards, where they sang their latest single from the balcony of a pontoon boat as about two dozen hot bodies danced and partied below.
The Band Perry took the stage like it was built for them at the 2012 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night. Lead singer Kimberly Perry let her hair down and worked the crowd singing the trio’s current single ‘Postcard From Paris.’ Last year, the group won the Breakthrough Video of the Year belt buckle, but it’s clear they’re on their way to bigger things in years to come.
If the rest of the Zac Brown Band‘s new album is half as fun as ‘The Wind,’ fans are in for a great summer in 2012. The ever-growing country jam band performed their new single live for the first time at the 2012 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night, and proved why they belong in discussions about country music’s top musicians.
Toby Keith and actress Kristen Bell eventually took the stage to host the 2012 CMT Music Awards, but if you followed the opening moments of the show, you learned it wasn’t easy for them to get along. The two spent time campaigning to host the show themselves in a pre-taped video segment that featured cameos from President Obama, Mitt Romney, Bon Jovi, Willie Nelson, Mario Lopez and more.
The 2012 CMT Music Awards winners will undoubtedly be the best of the best, as the show honors country music’s top videos — mostly decided by fans. Female artists dominate the nominees, with Carrie Underwood leading the way with five and Miranda Lambert close behind with four. Eight total awards will be decided by the fan vote. Who do you think will win each award at the 2012 CMT Music Awards?
