Sugarland was scheduled to begin their video deposition today (April 12) concerning the August 13 Indiana State Fair tragedy and the lawsuits suggesting that they resisted delaying the start of their show. Since the collapse that killed seven and injured dozens more, fingers have been pointed at everyone from Sugarland to Mid-America Sound Corp, the company that owned the stage and the light rigging. But the band says no one cares more about getting this resolved than they do.
Her father may be a football legend, but recording artist Rachel Bradshaw did inherit musical genes from Terry Bradshaw. The younger Bradshaw, who came to Nashville from her native Texas to study music at Belmont, has signed a record deal with Bigger Picture Group. In an interview with the Associated Press, Rachel explained that this has always been her goal ever since she came to Belmont as a freshman.
Keith Urban‘s fans may have been disappointed when the ‘For You’ singer had to postpone his annual All for the Hall benefit concert due to vocal cord surgery. Though the concert was originally set to take place mid-January, Urban’s vocal rest caused him to reschedule the annual Country Music Hall of Fame fundraiser for tonight, April 10. And while fans had to wait three months for the event, Urban went out of his way this morning to make it well worth their while.
To say that Jake Owen had quite the week last week would be a vast understatement. The country singer with Floridian roots saw his single ‘Alone With You‘ climb to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Songs chart, where it’s still sitting pretty above the rest. Whether it was because Owen was already on top of the world or because he felt especially emotional playing for his hometown Vero Beach, Fla. crowd, Owen went ahead and popped the question to girlfriend Lacey Buchanan on Saturday night (April 7).
After having vocal cord surgery at the end of last year, Keith Urban went on three weeks of extremely difficult vocal rest, during which time he couldn’t speak, sneeze, cough or communicate with his young daughters, who didn’t understand why their dad was silent. But now, on the other size of the trying process, Urban says he feels like a football player in his 40s who was given the knees of a 20-year-old.
Trace Adkins has forged a new partnership, but it’s not with a label or another country artist or agency — it’s with his meat. Adkins has joined forces with the Louisiana-based company Hightower Enterprises to bring his celebrity name to Hightower’s Country Smoked Sausage. In a commercial for the product, Adkins is grilling out in the backyard, explaining why he chose to align himself with the company that’s been making his favorite sausage since 1972.
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw have been seeing a good bit of each other lately, as the two polish their boots in preparation for their upcoming Brothers of the Sun Tour, which kicks off June 2 in Tampa, Fla. Plus, the pair of country studs hit the ACM stage this past weekend (Sunday, April 1) to perform their new joint single ‘Feel Like a Rock Star.’ And then today (April 4), the two took their rocking single to the stage of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’
Miranda Lambert and Chris Young sat down at the table with the ladies of CBS’ ‘The Talk’ on Thursday morning, and Lambert decided to offer up a little nugget of trivia about the 26-year-old country crooner joining her on the show. “I have a secret that I know,” she began, pausing. “About him — but you’re not going to expect what I’m about to say.”
Toby Keith took a moment to appear on Chelsea Handler’s show ‘Chelsea Lately’ Tuesday night (March 27) to talk to the comedic host about his career, enjoy a shot of tequila and explain why he’s not a conservative Republican, as many might assume. After admitting that she actually had Keith confused with Trace Adkins until she saw him and realized it wasn’t Adkins, Handler jumped in her matter-of-fact, straight-faced way from topic to topic — after first enjoying a shot of the restaurant owner’s own brand of Mezcal, which he calls Wild Shot.
Steel Magnolia had a rough year last year — to say the least. With rumors of a potential split circulating, the duo’s fans were left wondering what was going to happen to the ‘Keep On Lovin’ You’ singers in 2012, both professionally and personally, since the two had set a tentative July 2012 wedding date. And while the duo aren’t giving any details of the status of their relationship, Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey assure fans that they’re back in the studio working on new music and preparing for their upcoming ACM Experience appearance.
‘The Hunger Games’ premiere finally came and went, and according to Forbes, the film did even better at the box office than originally expected. And while this means major profits for Lions Gate Entertainment, it also means hefty dividends for the musicians behind the film’s soundtrack, including names like Taylor Swift, the Civil Wars, Miranda Lambert and the Secret Sisters. In the end, it looks as though Swift will take home the biggest paycheck, since she has two songs on the record.
Could it be true? On Thursday, it was reported that Universal is kicking around the idea of filming a sequel to the box office hit Dr. Seuss film ‘The Lorax,’ which stars Taylor Swift and Zac Efron. While this may or may not simply be a rumor, it seems Universal would have to be crazy not to at least consider the idea with as well as the first movie is doing.
