It’s hard to imagine tough-as-nails country gal Miranda Lambert getting so sick that she has to cancel shows, but unfortunately, that’s exactly what has happened this week. The normally energetic country star was slated to play at Jam in the Valley in Varysburg, N.Y. tonight (July 6), but according to Jam in the Valley officials, the ‘Over You’ hitmaker “has taken ill and has canceled all performances for this weekend as per her doctor’s orders.”
Although Keith Urban has fully enjoyed coaching talented singers on ‘The Voice’ in Australia, there’s no chance that the ‘You Gonna Fly’ hitmaker will trade in his guitar for a permanent reality TV contract anytime soon. While Urban would be thrilled to do another season of ‘The Voice,’ he told Australian radio’s Kyle & Jackie O Show that making music is still priority No. 1.
Major League Baseball is getting countrified this year — and not just because Zac Brown Band will be singing ‘Chicken Fried’ at the State Farm Home Run Derby on July 9. At the main event on July 10, Luke Bryan will take the stage at the MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City to sing the National Anthem minutes before the umpire shouts, “Play ball!” During the seventh-inning stretch, fellow country star Kellie Pickler will perform ‘God Bless America’ from the field.
David Nail is pretty hardcore. Just last month, the ‘Let It Rain’ hitmaker left it all out on the field at the City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge during the CMA Music Festival in Nashville. In fact, he played so hard (and might we add, threw out so many members of the challenging team) that he suffered a minor fracture and a detached tendon in his hand. The good news is, now Nail is all patched up and he’s ready to brave another celebrity softball match.
Taylor Swift had a starstruck July 4, and no, we’re not talking about fireworks or the stars on the grand old flag. Country music’s sweetheart celebrated her Independence Day by taking a (romantic?) walk on the beach with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Patrick and going sailing with several members of the Kennedy family in Massachusetts.
Country music fans in Darien Lake, N.Y. don’t have a very good track record for behaving appropriately at concerts — especially those who attend Rascal Flatts shows. On Saturday night (June 30), 59 fans were charged with underage possession of alcohol and intent to consume during the Flatts concert at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center.
It would seem to many that Miranda Lambert takes in a new stray dog every week. And perhaps she does. But it’s all because the ‘Over You’ hitmaker has a warm heart for her furry friends and wants to do anything she can to help them. This time, Lambert has adopted six stray puppies, and she turned to her fans to find homes for the sweet litter.
Ever since Lady Antebellum released a behind-the-scenes clip of their ‘Wanted You More’ music video, we’ve been anxious to see the finished product. Although the initial clip showed us some fiery scenes of lead singer Hillary Scott walking away from a burning piano, it didn’t prepare us for the intensity of the full video.
Whether you love NASCAR or not, everyone knows that Danica Patrick is the fastest female driver around. In fact, Patrick has risen to racing star status by being one of the more successful female drivers in history. Really, who would be a better pick to star in Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ music video? After several hints by the country star and the racing phenom on Twitter, now we know that Patrick snagged the lead role in Lambert’s forthcoming clip.
Taylor Swift has been a fan of James Taylor’s music ever since she was a little girl. And she should be — after all, Swift’s parents had the soulful folk-rock singer in mind when they named their baby girl. The 22-year-old country superstar especially adores Taylor’s hit ‘Fire and Rain,’ and lucky for her, the ‘Mean’ hitmaker will have the opportunity play a few tunes — and maybe even her favorite song — with James Taylor at the iconic Tanglewood venue in Massachusetts on July 2.
