Calling all rodeo fans! The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo — one of the biggest events of its kind in the country — has announced a killer line-up for 2013. In addition to the usual events, like calf scrambles, chuck wagons races, and of course the rodeo itself, Rodeo Houston is known for putting on some killer country music shows with the biggest names in the biz. Next year, one of the biggest of all, legendary country star George Strait, will make his first appearance at the festival since 2003.
On Tuesday night, Jermaine Paul was named ‘The Voice’ winner on the hit NBC show by the same name.

When Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott — who make up the mega-talented country music trio Lady Antebellum — say that they love their fans, they really mean it. In fact, when Lady A superfan Jessica Stokes appeared on ‘Anderson’ on Tuesday, she couldn’t stop talking about how much she loves the group and how she’s never seen them in concert — that’s when the trio gave her the surprise of a lifetime.
Taylor Swift has gotten her fair share of prom invitations this year. In February, 18-year-old New Jersey native Kevin McGuire asked the ‘Love Story’ songstress to his prom, and with a little help from his friends, caught her attention. This time, it’s 19-year-old Devon Whitney from Aurora, Colo. who is requesting Swift’s presence at the big senior dance.
The last time Carrie Underwood visited the ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ she got into a bit of hot water for calling her husband — Nashville Predators hockey star Mike Fisher — a hoarder.

LeAnn Rimes swears that run-ins with husband Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, aren’t awkward, though Us Magazine begs to differ.

If you saw Blake Shelton hanging out with Jay Leno on ‘The Tonight Show‘ this week, you might have raised an eyebrow at the ‘Over’ singer’s flirtatious comments toward movie star Scarlett Johansson. Innocent as they were, Shelton’s flirty antics beg the question, “What would Miranda Lambert think of this?” The country star’s wife of nearly a year took to Twitter to assure her fans that she’s not worried about her man.
On Wednesday night (May 2), Blake Shelton took the stage at ‘The Tonight Show’ to perform his new single ‘Over’ after a short — but hilarious — interview with Jay Leno. Shelton took on the role of a tell-all star as he dished about his role on ‘The Voice,’ his one-year anniversary with songstress Miranda Lambert and his deep, deep hatred for skinny jeans.
At PS22 in Staten Island, N.Y., a chorus of talented fifth graders has garnered some national attention by performing hit songs with famous musicians like Gym Class Heroes, Ingrid Michaelson, Adele… and now, country’s own gem Carrie Underwood. Led by their instructor, talented piano player Gregg Breinberg, a few dozen chorus members gathered in the school auditorium recently to sing ‘Good Girl’ with Underwood, whose typically larger-than-life voice was almost overpowered by the kids’ skills.
With many asking “When is ‘The Voice‘ Season 2 finale?” fans of the show should be in the know about changes to the last episode’s airing time.

Now, NBC is planning to air the last episode of ‘The Voice’ Season 2 from 9-11PM ET. Hopefully that’s not too late for fans of Blake Shelton and the rest of ‘The Voice’ coaches!
Every year, Countryfest — hosted by radio station WGNA in Albany, N.Y. — is one of the best ways to catch live music from your favorite country stars.
