Every year, racing fans, horse lovers, debutantes and country music stars flock to the Kentucky Derby for a day (or an entire weekend, for some) of horse racing, mint juleps and Old South-style fun. Of course, the derby is all about the horses and the galas — unless you’re one of the fashionable folks who would rather just take in the dresses, suits and hats. This year, Miranda Lambert looked to Kate Middleton for fashion inspiration, and the result was a world-class derby hat atop her head.
Kip Moore has a lot going on lately. For starters, his debut album, ‘Up All Night,’ is finally available! And fans of Moore will be excited to learn that his new video for ‘Hey Pretty Girl’ is available for their viewing pleasure, as well.
Before now, country newcomer Greg Bates had probably only dreamed of performing on Nashville’s famed Opry stage, but on Friday night (April 27), that became a reality. Bates sang his new single ‘Did It for the Girl’ for the Grand Ole Opry crowd. While Bates is a fresh face, his song is becoming familiar. The week of its release, ‘Did It for the Girl’ was the most radio added song with 29 adds. It landed just behind superstar Keith Urban.
After many long years at the top, it looks like Fox’s ‘American Idol’ is starting to lose steam as America’s top reality singing show. The culprit? Stiff competition created by Blake Shelton and team on ‘The Voice‘ has ultimately caused ‘Idol’ ratings to drop.
If you’re one of those people who skimps on skincare and spends a lot of time in the sun (or even worse, a tanning bed) this message is for you: You should really take care of your skin while you’re young. Even Carrie Underwood — one of country music’s most beautiful celebrities — admits that if she could go back in time, to her teenage years, she would treat her skin right.
Thanks to recent news about his 2010 album release going gold, Brantley Gilbert is probably on cloud nine this week. ‘Halfway to Heaven’ contains the country star’s No. 1 hit ‘Country Must Be Country Wide,’ as well as his current Top 15 single, ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ — a song which likely helped the release sell 500,000 copies.
Alan Jackson has had great success as a tried and true country artist. Newer acts, like Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, have scored their success by straying from the old-fashioned country sound. But Jackson says he won’t go that route. The 53-year-old country legend plans to hold steady with his down South sound.
Singer-songwriter Lee Brice (who has penned hits for the likes of Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney) has a lot of country star credibility in his own right. His just-released new video, ‘Hard to Love’ — from latest album release ‘Hard 2 Love’ — proves that Brice’s star power is rising… and fast.
Toby Keith is known for being a seriously patriotic country star — maybe even the most patriotic one in the bunch. After all, some of his top hits have had names like ‘Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue,’ ‘American Soldier’ and ‘Made in America.’ No, Toby Keith has never been shy about his love for America — nor his support for our troops. In fact, he’s in the midst of celebrating 10 years of giving back by playing for soldiers in the Middle East on his USO tours.
Every year, Countryfest — hosted by radio station WGNA in Albany, N.Y. — is one of the best ways to catch live music from your favorite country stars. As expected, the 2012 festival is sure to be just as much of a hit, with big names like Eric Church, Joe Nichols and Thompson Square slated to perform.
