Country music doesn’t only live within the United States. The official countdown for the Canadian Country Music Association Awards is on,with the Canadian Country Music Association announcing the nominees this week. The awards show will take place at the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon on Sept. 9 at 8PM ET.
Taylor Swift is one of CoverGirl’s most popular spokeswomen, and the makeup company’s latest tagline fits in perfectly with Swift’s style. ‘See yourself, be yourself’ just happens to be the country music star’s specialty. Although we know her as a sweet-as-pie role model for young girls and adults alike, Swift said in an interview behind-the-scenes of a new CoverGirl commercial that she likes to think of herself as a rebel, at least “in some ways.”
Keith Urban may call the States home now, but the Australian native hasn’t forgotten his roots. As proof, the award-winning country star has spent quite a bit of time in the Land Down Under, playing a part on Australia’s version of ‘The Voice’ and bringing country to his overseas fans. Most recently, Urban is thrilling his followers by gracing the cover of GQ Australia, looking especially dapper in a tailored gray suit.
Over the weekend, Ashton Kutcher donned a cowboy hat and a plaid shirt — again — to catch Kenny Chesney‘s show in Anaheim, Calif. The self-professed country music fan was having a good time until paparazzi from X17 started snapping photos of him. Whether he was irritated or feeling playful, we’re not sure, but Kutcher chased away the cameras by splashing a bottle of water on them.
Just because the rest of us have been wearing out Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Blown Away’ album all summer doesn’t mean that the country star likes to listen to her own music. The fact that ‘Blown Away’ sat perched atop the Billboard country chart for five straight weeks doesn’t seem to phase her either. In a recent interview with Australia’s ‘The Morning Show,’ Underwood admitted that she hasn’t listened to the record for a while.
For the past year, attorneys have been preparing to battle over who is responsible for a stage rigging error that caused a stage to collapse at the Indiana State Fair in August, killing seven people and injuring dozens before a Sugarland concert. Unfortunately, now it will be much more difficult to reach a verdict in the case, which goes to trial on April 1, 2014. Last weekend, steel cables that were part of the stage rigging system were stolen from the warehouse where they were being stored with other wreckage from the collapse.
Even if you’re not a fan of Showtime’s hit series, ‘Weeds,’ you’re probably familiar with its theme song, ‘Little Boxes.’ Even hearing a few bars of the little ditty will have you humming the tune all day long. During ‘Weeds” second and third seasons, a number of artists covered the catchy tune for the show. Now, it’s about to become even more of an earworm since Dierks Bentley has agreed to record a country version of the song for the series’ eighth season!
Craig Morgan is more than just a country singer. Although he’s a mega-talented star, Morgan also served in the U.S. Army for 10 years, worked as a police officer and served a short stint as a Walmart employee. Today (July 13), the ‘Corn Star‘ hitmaker got to talk about his busy schedule and rocking country tunes — and his hit new record ‘This Ole Boy’ — on Fox’s morning show ‘Fox & Friends.’
A few weeks ago, we reported that Miranda Lambert called on a new friend to help out with her upcoming music video for ‘The Fastest Girl in Town.’ Naturally, NASCAR racing star Danica Patrick was the most fitting lady to play the lead part. Both Patrick and Lambert tweeted about how much fun they had shooting the video, and it sounds like the camera crew recorded a lot — really, a lot — of good footage. Today, we learned that the clip will be more like a mini-movie than a music video.
Kellie Pickler isn’t shy about how much she loves animals. And even though she already has four ‘kids’ at home — including three dogs and a python named Boots — that’s just not enough to keep Pickler’s animal obsession at bay. Unfortunately, the ’100 Proof’ hitmaker dished to People Pets recently that she’s going to have to reign in her desire to pick up every adorable stray furball she finds, because her husband, songwriter Kyle Jacobs, has finally put his foot down.
