The starlet was handed the 2012 Honorary Star of Compassion award by the Northwest Tennessee Disaster Services, a Tennessee nonprofit group dedicated to disaster relief and education.
Lady Antebellum‘s music isn’t exactly the type that should incite violent behavior in listeners. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop a man from attacking a young girl at their recent show in Burgettstown, Penn. As if that isn’t strange enough, police reported that the gentleman actually bit off the tip of her right ring finger in the process.
Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney have both paid their dues in the country music industry.

We don’t know about you, but we’re definitely ‘blown away’ by Carrie Underwood‘s most recent album (yeah, we know that’s a bad joke). On a more serious note, though, Underwood’s latest album has topped Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart for four consecutive weeks. ‘Blown Away’ is the first album since 2010 to debut at No. 1 and hold that slot for so many weeks in a row.
Some of Toby Keith‘s ‘bad A’ patriotic songs can make him sound like a tough guy, but the truth is that the country star is always willing to donate time and money to help sick children and other people in need.
