The 2012 CMT Music Awards began with a batch of country and pop collaborations before settling into a Nashville-based broadcast, featuring Music City’s best. Rascal Flatts closed the show with one of the all-time greatest mainstream rock bands however, inviting Journey on stage to sing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.’
For the second time in less than a month, two rows of fans will go home from an award show picking confetti out of their hair and outfits following a Carrie Underwood performance. At the end of ‘Good Girl’ at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, it rained gold on unsuspecting fans below.
Toby Keith and actress Kristen Bell eventually took the stage to host the 2012 CMT Music Awards, but if you followed the opening moments of the show, you learned it wasn’t easy for them to get along. The two spent time campaigning to host the show themselves in a pre-taped video segment that featured cameos from President Obama, Mitt Romney, Bon Jovi, Willie Nelson, Mario Lopez and more.
John Mayer has felt the wrath of Taylor Swift‘s guitar and pen, and he didn’t like it. The pop-singer acknowledges that ‘Dear John’ — an album cut from Swift’s 2010 ‘Speak Now’ album — is about him, but adds that he didn’t know that he’d hurt her until the song came out.
The 2012 CMT Music Awards are a collection of both superstars and hot, new country talent. This week, stars like Carrie Underwood and Eric Church have been rehearsing their performances, while newcomers like Kip Moore, Jana Kramer and the FARM look to take the stage for the very first time. Scroll through these photos of artists preparing for Wednesday’s (June 6) CMT broadcast.
Kenny Chesney's new single makes a Top 10 debut on the Taste of Country list of the Top 40 Country Songs of June 2012. 'Come Over' is one of three songs about 'Over' — including 'Over' by Blake Shelton and 'Over You' by Miranda Lambert — to make this list. None of those three are in the Top 5 however. Those positions go to songs that are at the top of sales, Billboard and request charts.
With Memorial Day last weekend, many country stars took to Twitter to make sure their fans know the reason we’re free to celebrate an extra day off before the start of summer. A few, like Kellie Pickler, went a little further. Learn who had the most touching messages to the troops in This Week’s Best Tweets.
Happy birthday to Ronnie Dunn! The singer and one-half of country’s greatest duo turns 59-years-old today. During a career that’s lasted over 20 years, Dunn has proven to be amongst the most versatile and talented vocalists in Nashville. He and partner Kix Brooks charted 26 No. 1 singles before separating to pursue solo careers. Which Brooks & Dunn song is your all-time favorite?
Country music has a long tradition of supporting the troops, with stars like Toby Keith, Kellie Pickler and Darryl Worley taking frequent trips overseas to play for the men and women stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of course, before the Gulf Wars, country musicians were quick to join the USO to play for troops stationed just about anywhere. While only a minority of Nashville’s best served in the military, more than a few on this list may surprise you.
As a holiday weekend approaches, it’s clear that a few country stars may have begun celebrating a little early. Joe Nichols has something to celebrate, while a few others — like Jerrod Niemann and Tyler Farr — may just be celebrating life. Of course Blake Shelton is included in this list of the week’s best tweets, but his submission is much more domestic than fans are used to — but still hilarious.
Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift are now labelmates. Just this morning McGraw announced that he signed a recording contract with Big Machine Records. In a press release, the country music legend explained how the deal — signed on May 9 — is the start of his next chapter.
