Carrie Underwood took the April/May 2012 cover of Vegas magazine, and this week she’s staring back at us from the front of Billboard’s April 21 issue. Looking striking in black with black lace gloves, Underwood is more intentionally disheveled than we usually see her, with her blonde locks blowing freely as the starlet holds them back. The cover story bears the title ‘Carrie Underwood Plays On.’
Ryan Seacrest started a playful rumor on ‘American Idol‘ this week, repeatedly asking country fireball Skylar Laine and her fellow hopeful Colton Dixon if they are dating. After the two dueted to Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson‘s ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ — their second duet together — the dating jokes began. Of course, the same thing happened to Phillip Phillips and Elise Testone after their duet. Apparently, there’s just something about onstage chemistry that gets the rumors flying.
Sugarland was scheduled to begin their video deposition today (April 12) concerning the August 13 Indiana State Fair tragedy and the lawsuits suggesting that they resisted delaying the start of their show. Since the collapse that killed seven and injured dozens more, fingers have been pointed at everyone from Sugarland to Mid-America Sound Corp, the company that owned the stage and the light rigging. But the band says no one cares more about getting this resolved than they do.
Kelly Clarkson, Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles, Lionel Richie and Robin Thicke all have one thing in common right now (and no, it’s not their super successful recording careers). They’re each scouring the nation for the very best singers to join their teams on the upcoming ABC show ‘Duets.’ And though the show doesn’t officially premiere until May, the artists are already getting a major start on choosing their team members.
In addition to being a country superstar, Taylor Swift is also the queen of cross-genre collaboration. The ‘Ours’ singer who has been known to pull up guest stars of all walks onto her stage was recently featured on rapper B.o.B‘s single ‘Both of Us,’ which just hit the web yesterday. The song is a cut from the ‘Airplanes’ singer’s forthcoming ‘Strange Clouds’ record.
As a celebrity coach on NBC’s hit show ‘The Voice,’ Blake Shelton spends most of his time sitting alongside his fellow coaches in his futuristic-looking red swivel chair that has become such an integral part of the show. But next week, the laid-back country coach will be taking a break from his chair-warming duties to join his four remaining team members onstage. Though Shelton has a slight advantage over his team members (he can’t get voted off), he will be stepping into their shoes Monday night (April 16) for a joint performance.
Wednesday night (April 11) marked the night of the Top 7 on ‘American Idol,’ and first up to the stage was country crowd-pleaser Skylar Laine with Kellie Pickler’s hit Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You.’
Her father may be a football legend, but recording artist Rachel Bradshaw did inherit musical genes from Terry Bradshaw. The younger Bradshaw, who came to Nashville from her native Texas to study music at Belmont, has signed a record deal with Bigger Picture Group. In an interview with the Associated Press, Rachel explained that this has always been her goal ever since she came to Belmont as a freshman.
In his single ‘Tattoos on this Town,’ Jason Aldean weaves a tale of memories made in a small town, comparing them to tattoos. The lyric that ends the first verse inspired Natchez, Miss. resident Keith Partridge to craft the perfect marriage proposal idea.
Spring is a great time to make drastic changes, and that’s just what country pop singer LeAnn Rimes did this week. After making an appearance at the ACM Awards April 1 as a blonde — as we’ve known her for much of her career — Rimes took a chance and changed the look of her locks, dying her hair a rich nutty brown.
To say that Jake Owen had quite the week last week would be a vast understatement. The country singer with Floridian roots saw his single ‘Alone With You‘ climb to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Songs chart, where it’s still sitting pretty above the rest. Whether it was because Owen was already on top of the world or because he felt especially emotional playing for his hometown Vero Beach, Fla. crowd, Owen went ahead and popped the question to girlfriend Lacey Buchanan on Saturday night (April 7).
While most people were hitting Twitter yesterday, April 8, with Easter wishes and pictures of dyed eggs and family gatherings, Billy Ray Cyrus got his fans’ attention with a much more somber tweet. The ‘Hillbilly Heart’ singer and author sent out a message to his fans asking for prayer for his mother’s health.
