It’s a little early to call any album the best anything of 2012, but it’s no stretch to say Kip Moore‘s debut is the best by a new country artist this year, so far. ‘Up All Night’ introduces the gypsy from south Georgia as an inspiring storyteller, a talented lyricist and a gritty, well-traveled vocalist.
This may be one of the easiest country music yearbook photos to identify, as it was taken less than eight years ago. The starlet in question quickly moved on from her Nashville area high school to sign a recording contract and form the hottest group in Music City. She has a famous mother and recently married her band’s touring drummer.
One of the men who helped Willie Nelson build his long and storied career has died. Chris Ethridge, a country rock bassist who’s perhaps best known as the co-founder of the Flying Burrito Brothers, died Monday (April 23) after being hospitalized in Meridian, Miss. last week.
Looking for a list of the new country music releases on the shelf in May 2012? We’ve got you covered. The month begins with a bang as Carrie Underwood releases her highly anticipated fourth studio album. While ‘Blown Away’ isn’t the only country album being released on May 1, not many people want to compete with the blonde bombshell.
The stage that collapsed moments before Sugarland was due to begin their performance at the Indiana State Fair last year wasn’t strong enough to withstand a 68 MPH gust of wind, as required by code. A 59 MPH gust of wind toppled the light and sound rigging on the night of August 13, but parts of the support system began giving way earlier in the evening.
A big theme in country music news today was ‘hair.’ LeAnn Rimes changed her hair color, and Taste of Country readers worked to decide which country male has the best hair in our daily readers poll. Find both of these stories, plus news on Alan Jackson‘s new album in the Daily Roundup.
Legal issues continue to plague country legend Randy Travis. Elizabeth Travis — the singer’s ex-wife and manager — filed a lawsuit last Thursday (April 5) alleging breach of contract in matters pertaining to their post-divorce agreement.
While Blake Shelton had a few good zingers during the ACM Awards on Sunday night, Brad Paisley quietly mocking Zac Brown while the two jammed out on ‘Whiskey’s Gone‘ might have been the funniest moment. Paisley played an April Fool’s joke on Brown, who seems to have taken the ribbing in stride. Although he does look like he’s ready to rip that beanie from the singer’s head, doesn’t he?
Jason Aldean began talking about new music this week, and got his fans excited with comments about a new single. Find out how long you have to wait by clicking the top story in today’s Daily Roundup. Blake Shelton‘s date night routine with Miranda Lambert and a trip to go see Carrie Underwood are also included amongst the top stories.
It was one year ago tomorrow (April 4) that Miranda Lambert and the Pistol Annies debuted their act at the ACM ‘Girls Night Out’ performance in Las Vegas, before spending the summer together as part of Lambert’s cross-country tour. The plan for this year? Do it all over again.
Blake Shelton was clearly more comfortable on stage during the ACM Awards 2012 than he was the previous year, the first time he co-hosted with Reba McEntire. It seemed like the singer was able to write some of his own jokes, or at least include jokes fans would expect to find on his Twitter page. For better or worse, the monologue and interludes had more bite than those in years past.
