If your name is Taylor Swift, then one thing you’re never going to be free from (or, at least until marriage) are dating rumors. It seems Swift’s fanbase and the media alike would love to see the country starlet with a beau. And while others have to announce their romances by becoming Facebook official or tweeting a sweet nothing, all Miss Swift has to do is look someone in the eyes or share a meal with a guy (and his agent) and — bam — love is in the air.
Jason Aldean released his fourth studio album, ‘My Kinda Party,’ in November of 2010, and since then he’s seen his career skyrocket as his singles climb the charts with a ferocity and his My Kinda Party Tour continues to sell out faster than tickets can go on sale. In an interview backstage at Sunday’s (April 1) ACM Awards, Aldean told reporters that he’s finished with his fifth studio album and ready to release the first single to the world this summer.
Last year, sibling trio the Band Perry made their way to the ACM Awards in Las Vegas, where they took home the fan-voted New Artist of the Year Award. Even so, the band wasn’t officially nominated for an award, and the youngest Perry sibling, Neil, was still too young to even try his hand at a Vegas slot machine. This year, however, the band has an official nod for Vocal Group of the Year, and they say they’re excited to get out to Las Vegas and hang out with some of the best names in country music.
It’s truly one of the sweetest stories, and now Martina McBride is giving the details behind the live wedding that’s going to take place onstage at the ACM Awards while the country songstress and Train frontman Pat Monahan sing a live version of McBride’s single ‘Marry Me.’ The ‘I’m Gonna Love You Through It’ singer says the whole wedding plan was actually her own (admittedly crazy) idea.
With only a day until the 47th Annual ACM Awards, the country world is descending upon Las Vegas. Fans are getting ready to be entertained for the weekend; country stars are getting settled and fitted for their awards night attire; and superstar Blake Shelton is getting ready (physically and mentally) for his second year as an ACM co-host with Reba McEntire. Though this is McEntire’s 14th consecutive year and she could do this show in her sleep, Shelton, who will be performing as well, admitted to some nerves.
The 2012 ACM Awards are shaping up to be quite an entertaining evening, with new country stars being added to the celebrity lineup of performers each day. That’s in addition to a live onstage wedding, and now, a list of country talents set to bring special duets to the ACM stage. The Academy announced today (March 29) the lineup of special collaborations that are slated to be a part of country music’s “party of the year.”
Carrie Underwood and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, are revered by teens across the country for their success in their respective careers. This week, the celebrity couple used that platform and took a minute to speak out for teen mental health. In support of the youth-driven organization D.I.F.D. (Do It For Daron), which works to raise awareness and get people talking about teen mental health, Underwood and Fisher appeared in a PSA reminding teens that they are highly valued and that they have hope.
You may know that Kenny Chesney makes an appearance with a host of country stars on Lionel Richie’s ‘Tuskegee‘ new country duets record, but do you know exactly how the ‘You and Tequila’ singer actually landed his spot on the album? While the two stars are good friends who each seem to really respect one another’s work, this collaboration actually began with a drunk dial.
In honor of the 2012 ACM Awards festivities, the ‘Today’ Show has gone country this week. With scheduled appearances by Randy Travis, Lee Brice, Josh Turner and Kellie Pickler spread out throughout the remainder of the days leading up to April 1, Lauren Alaina took the ‘Today’ stage this morning (March 26) to perform her high-energy single ‘Georgia Peaches‘ for ‘Today’ Show hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford.
While most celebrities are known for random party photos or the occasional didn’t-mean-for-anyone-to-see-that-moment snapshots, Taylor Swift recently retweeted a friend’s candid photo of her — playing dress-up. Looking like happy little girls enjoying a moment of delight, Swift and pal Claire Kislinger are decked out in charming dresses, and Swift’s appears to be a wedding gown with a matching veil of some sort.
She was one of the last holdouts on the 140-character social networking site, but even though Carrie Underwood finally joined Twitter about a month ago, she admits she’s still a little hesitant about it. From the moment she first tweeted “Hello Twitter World!” on Feb. 24, Underwood has used the site primarily to talk about the progress of her upcoming album ‘Blown Away,’ her most recent single ‘Good Girl,’ her surprise ’80s birthday party and the occasional post featuring her dogs or hockey playing husband Mike Fisher. But the songstress says the Twitterverse is not a place where she’s going to get too personal.
If there’s one thing ‘American Idol‘ seems to love as much as discovering the newest talent, it’s inviting their alums back for a moment in the spotlight. It’s always so incredible to how performers who were once anxious hopefuls develop into such poised, self-assured stars in no time. Next week, the past ‘Idol’ winner who will be coming back to show off how he’s changed in a year is Scotty McCreery, and he’ll be joined by rap princess Nicki Minaj.
