If his repeat performance at the top of the Billboard country charts with ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ is any indication, you can’t get enough of Jake Owen right now.
Fortunately for you, Owen is happy to oblige. He recently sat down for a session as part of Walmart’s Soundcheck series, delivering live-in-the-studio performances of some of his favorite tracks while discussing the stories behind the songs.
He doesn’t record as often as he used to — and his last top 40 hit, the Garth Brooks duet ‘Beer Run,’ was released 10 years ago — but George Jones is still going strong. In fact, he kicked off a line dancing craze earlier this year, and recently celebrated his 80th birthday with a special party at the Grand Ole Opry.
It’s been more than four years since Big & Rich released their last album, and the years since have seen both Big Kenny and John Rich start successful solo careers — but from all the fun they’ve been having on this year’s reunion tour, it’s obvious they missed making music together.
Seeing Big & Rich back on stage raises the natural question of whether or not they’ll return to the studio for another album, and fans who have been keeping their fingers crossed for new recordings from the hitmaking duo can rest easy because John Rich says he’s sure it’ll happen.
When they got married earlier this year, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert joined the grand country music tradition of couples who have shared a home as well as a microphone. Naturally, there’s been a lot of speculation about when they’ll get around to recording together again — something they acknowledged when they announced they’d be co-producing their friend Neal McCoy’s new album.
The color pink isn’t something most people normally associate with the Grand Ole Opry, but in October, to help spread awareness of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, country’s most venerable institution will be going pink for the third straight year.
Martina McBride has been announced as the headliner for the third annual Opry Goes Pink concert, to be held October 22 in support of Women Rock for the Cure.
‘American Idol’ duo Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina have been dogged by rumors of romance for months — to the point where their fans have given the alleged couple their own mashed-up nickname, McLaina.
Anyone hoping for a public confession of love can stop hoping, however. Although both of them have winked and played along with the rumors, both McCreery and Alaina have come out to officially lay them to rest.
Next year, Josh Turner will celebrate his first decade in country music, and he’ll do it with millions of albums sold, nine top 40 singles, a pile of CMA and Grammy Awards nominations, and membership in the Grand Ole Opry.
That’s not a bad way to spend 10 years doing what you love — and Turner won’t start resting on his laurels now. In fact, he’s already deep into his next album.
She scored a number one duet with Brad Paisley this year, but it’s been a little while since Carrie Underwood released any new music on her ow. After all, her last album, ‘Play On,’ came out way back in 2009.
If you sat down and made a list of the things the internet loves, “lists” and “snark” would have to end up somewhere near the top — so you can hardly blame Rolling Stone for loading up on both with a recent feature dubbed ‘The Worst Songs of the ’90s.’
Country fans can take pride in their genre, which emerged from the countdown relatively unscathed, albeit with one significant, and hardly surprising, exception.
Have you forgotten that Lady Antebellum‘s new album, ‘Own the Night,’ is scheduled to come out next week?
Yeah, we didn’t think so. But just in case you had — or you were looking for a couple more sneak peeks at one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year — the band has posted two more clips of songs from the album.
