Willie Nelson‘s new album ‘Heroes’ is an eclectic collection of ambient emo-country, Texas swing and jazzy ballads. The singer isn’t confined by the country genre on any of the 14 songs. No one will ever doubt his credentials, so even songs like ‘The Scientist’ feel like one Hank Sr. may have chosen decades ago. OK, perhaps that’s an exaggeration, but few other singers could give the political lyric the proper twang.
Very few who’ve seen the controversial cover of this week’s issue of Time Magazine walk away without an opinion, and country star Sara Evans is no different. She is one of two female vocalists outraged by the photo, which shows a three-year-old boy standing on a chair and breastfeeding from his mother.
It’s been a busy few days for Jake Owen. The singer committed his love to fiancee Lacey Buchanan on Monday morning during a sunrise ceremony in his hometown. Read all the details and find out whose idea the early wedding was in the Daily Roundup below. Also, learn which coach from ‘The Voice’ may soon be joining Blake Shelton for a duet.
The power behind the punch of Lady Antebellum‘s sophomore album has withered away to little more than a slap to the cheek with the group’s fourth single ‘Wanted You More.’ The best songs from ‘Own the Night’ have already been issued as singles, and while hope remains for a late surge (‘Cold as Stone’ or ‘Friday Night’ perhaps), this new offering is more style than substance.
The normally polite and proper country music community is beginning to take sides in the drama between Eric Church and Blake Shelton. Jimmy Wayne posted a long letter to fans at his Facebook page defending both Shelton and reality television shows like ‘The Voice’ and ‘American Idol.’
In addition to releasing her highly-anticipated studio album ‘Blown Away’ on Tuesday, Carrie Underwood announced a whopping 57 scheduled shows on her upcoming 2012 Blown Away Tour. Hunter Hayes will open dates across the country and Canada, with $1 from each ticket sold at North America shows benefiting Red Cross disaster relief.
We’re used to seeing our favorite country stars in the spotlight, but deep down we know that it’s the kiddos at home — in addition to the fans — who keep the music fresh and the artists on tour. That’s why we’ve assembled a list of country music’s most famous mothers and fathers alongside their children, as an ode to the little families they’ve got behind the scenes, the ones dearest to their hearts.
Now before you start making fun of LeAnn Rimes‘ “Then” photo, remember that it was the late ’90s and we were all prone to wearing sage green blazers. The singer has always been on the cutting edge of country fashion, so it’s safe to assume that this was the style 15 years ago. Teenagers all over America were wearing stuff like that, weren’t they?
One of the men who helped Willie Nelson build his long and storied career has died. Chris Ethridge, a country rock bassist who’s perhaps best known as the co-founder of the Flying Burrito Brothers, died Monday (April 23) after being hospitalized in Meridian, Miss. last week.
For the second straight time, a song has been knocked from the Taste of Country Showdown when it was needing just one more win to reach of the Hall of Fame. Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Good Girl’ fell to ‘Springsteen’ by Eric Church last week. Just three weeks earlier, it was Underwood who kept Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Over You’ from becoming just the fourth song to be enshrined in the virtual hall.
