With his signature pigtail braids and hippie-inspired song lyrics, Willie Nelson doesn’t exactly seem like a golf guy. But once again, the legendary country icon surprised us by launching the first-annual Willie Nelson Celebrity Golf Tournament in Briarcliff, Texas, which will benefit the Pedernales Fire Department, the Helping Hands Crisis Ministry, the Children’s Music Foundation and the RunTex Foundation.
Even though Carrie Underwood is a few years Taylor Swift‘s senior, that hasn’t stopped music critics from lumping the two popular blonde singers into the same mold. Both Underwood and Swift have major crossover power, but that doesn’t mean that they are cut from the same cloth. In fact, Underwood recently told BANG Showbiz that she hates being compared to her 22-year-old fellow country/pop star.
Don’t expect to catch Carrie Underwood making spelling or grammar errors anytime soon. And if you know anything about the country songstress’ background, that shouldn’t surprise you. The ‘American Idol’ winner graduated magna cum laude from Northeastern State University with a communications degree. Though she’s a singing celeb now, Underwood’s focus was once journalism, so she still has an eye for her first love — good grammar.
It might seem like Keith Urban has been a bit quiet lately, but that’s not actually the case. For the past few months, the Australian country star has been hanging out on his home soil filming the Aussie version of ‘The Voice.’ But Urban just announced that when filming for the show wraps in January, he’s heading back out on tour, and he’ll be kicking off his next run Down Under.
Is anything more patriotic than hanging out on the National Mall on Independence Day? Probably not. That’s exactly where Josh Turner will be on the Independence Day this year. Along with actor Matthew Broderick, composer John Williams and a number of Olympic athletes, Turner will perform a portion of the program, which is known as ‘A Capitol Fourth.’
Judging by the country music fans hanging out at the CMA Music Festival in shorts and tank tops last weekend, summertime is definitely upon us. And what’s better than listening to new summer tunes during the warm weather months? To give you the perfect soundtrack for the summer, country star Jake Owen will release a ‘Summer Jam’ EP sometime during the season.
Ever since Blake Shelton debuted his new single ‘Over’ on ‘The Voice,’ we’ve been anxiously awaiting more from the hilariously up-front country star. The wait is over. This morning, Shelton’s new video for the song debuted on CMT as a part of a 30-minute program called ‘Diary of a Director: Blake Shelton’s ‘Over.”
Despite 22 No. 1 hits and dozens of accolades, Kenny Chesney is preparing to embark on what could be his most successful journey yet: the Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw. Propelling his journey forward will be his 13th studio album, ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl,’ which hits stores on June 19.
Miranda Lambert‘s adorable pups (however many she has) have nothing on Pancho, the adorable goldendoodle puppy Kenny Chesney was spotted with this week. Chesney, who is a first-time dog owner and a proud beach bum, already took the sweet pup for a ride on the water.
Taylor Swift gets a lot of press for doing nice things, but on Monday (June 11) she received a formal award for her good deeds.
