Merle Haggard is 75-years-old today! On what should be a national holiday — at least for fans of country music — we encourage you to pull out your old Haggard vinyls, or discover this legend for the first time by downloading a few of his greatest hits. His career is an important cornerstone at the base of the tall building that is country music.
In 2004, Poison singer Bret Michaels teamed up with Jessica Andrews to record ‘All I Ever Needed.’ The song appeared briefly on the Billboard country charts, but never caught on with radio or mainstream country fans. For longtime supporters of the ’80s rock band’s frontman, it’s difficult to listen to any ballad he sings without wanting to belt out, “Every rose has its thorn / Just like every night has its dawn.”
With the Texas tornadoes, the ACM Awards and the normal crazy things country artists see on any given day, there was plenty to tweet about this week — and the stars didn’t disappoint. Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton were prime examples of how dangerous tweeting can be, while the Band Perry and Chris Young gave examples of how embarrassing it can be to abuse your phone privileges.
While Blake Shelton had a few good zingers during the ACM Awards on Sunday night, Brad Paisley quietly mocking Zac Brown while the two jammed out on ‘Whiskey’s Gone‘ might have been the funniest moment. Paisley played an April Fool’s joke on Brown, who seems to have taken the ribbing in stride. Although he does look like he’s ready to rip that beanie from the singer’s head, doesn’t he?
Female artists like Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert can hardly check their mailbox without someone asking when they’re planning to get pregnant. Both women seem laser-focused on their respective careers right now, but have indicated that — in time — they might work with their husbands to have children.
Kelly Clarkson should write the book on how to transition from pop to country music. The singer has been showing up at country award shows and on collaborations for years, but finally submerged herself in country waters with a remake of her own ‘Mr. Know It All.’
It was one year ago tomorrow (April 4) that Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies debuted their act at the ACM ‘Girls Night Out’ performance in Las Vegas, before spending the summer together as part of Lambert’s cross-country tour. The plan for this year? Do it all over again.
