Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles used a recent break from her tour for a truly admirable cause. She joined forces with the Heart Truth, an organization that raises awareness about the little known fact that heart disease is actually the leading cause of death among women. Strutting her stuff for the organization on the red carpet in
It’s certainly no secret that Taylor Swift has a whole generation of young followers. With her upcoming Dr. Seuss film ‘The Lorax‘ set to hit theaters March 2, Swift is poised to have an even bigger influence on the lives of youngsters across the country. In this recently released campaign video for the National Education Association, Swift joins fellow ‘Lorax’ cast members Betty White, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms (from ‘The Office’) and Zac Efron to read a Seuss-like poem promoting the NEA’s Read Across America Day.
What can we say? When the DIY-laced, fashion-forward, recipe-stocked pin craze of Pinterest began, we never thought we’d be reporting that male country music stars would be getting in on the action. But Pinterest has taken on a new role of late, serving as just another social media outlet where artists can do what has become so vital these days: connect with their fans. Perhaps this is why New-Zealand born Aussie Keith Urban just added his name to the list of pinners you can follow with his new Pinterest page.
This year marked the first year hip-hop artist Chris Brown has been a part of the Grammys since 2009, when he beat up Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time, just before the ceremony. The Recording Academy’s choice to have him on as a performer in 2012 has stirred up a lot of reaction from people, both good and bad, especially since he was allowed to perform not once, but twice on Sunday night.
In many ways, Taylor Swift seems to have come into her own in the past two years. With the release of ‘Speak Now,’ she brought her own writing prowess and her own raw emotions to the table. Now, with a mature new look and riding the coattails of a very classy Grammy performance (and with two new Grammys to her name), the ‘Mean’ singer has officially established once and for all that she’s on the scene to stay. And this leaves fans wondering what approach she’ll take with her next record.
Maybe it really is true that you just can’t do it all. At least that’s what ‘Red Solo Cup’ singer Toby Keith seems to be discovering. After making appearances in the movies ‘Beer for My Horses’ and ‘Broken Bridges,’ Keith says he’s throwing in the acting towel for good — but not because he didn’t enjoy it.
While people across the country are enjoying the sight of those colorful flowers on their desks today or ruing the number of chocolates they indulged in yesterday, Miranda Lambert is likely having a hard time keeping her eyes off the newest addition to her right pointer finger. The country starlet received just the Valentine’s Day gift she had hoped for from sweetheart husband Blake Shelton yesterday: a giant ring shaped like a hummingbird and covered in pink and white jewels.
The Band Perry truly shot onto the spotlight in the past year, perhaps so quickly that it seems most surreal to them. At the Grammy ceremony Sunday, they performed a tribute to Glen Campbell, singing his ‘Gentle on My Mind’ and then joining the legend and Blake Shelton for the classic ‘Rhinestone Cowboy.’ With that impressive performance behind them, the sibling trio are getting ready for their first headlining Nashville show.
Actress/songstress Jana Kramer recently debuted the music video for her country single ‘Why Ya Wanna,’ which she released to country radio mid-January 2011. The ‘One Tree Hill’ star saw her single break a record, too, as it was playlisted by more than 55 radio stations nationwide — more than any other debut artists has seen since the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart came into existence.
The Grammy red carpet was aflutter with stars of all kinds on Sunday night, but none so cute perhaps as 8-year-old Sophia Grace Brownlee and her 5-year-old sidekick Rosie, who were covering the red carpet for ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’ The girls, who were discovered via YouTube, have been seen on past episodes of ‘Ellen’ rapping, meeting Nicki Minaj and even serving as Ellen’s correspondents at the American Music Awards.
Wynonna Judd got engaged to sweetheart and band member Cactus Moser on Christmas Eve, and the singer just revealed some details about her upcoming fall wedding. While you might expect the country star to go for something shimmering and glitzy, Judd says that’s not in the cards for her in this, her third, wedding. In fact, this time around she tells People that the theme will be “barefoot and just fun.”
Kenny Rogers filed a federal lawsuit Monday (Feb. 13) against his label Capitol Records, claiming the label owes him money for digital music sales. He’s also claiming he is owed $400,000 from Capitol that he has yet to receive because of a number of accounting errors. According to the suit, the second part of the claim has been an ongoing battle since 2007.
