It’s safe to say that Brantley Gilbert is one of the hottest rising stars in country music right now. As a songwriter, his tunes ‘My Kinda Party’ and ‘Dirt Road Anthem,’ recorded by Jason Aldean, and his own chart-topping hit, ‘Country Must Be Country Wide,’ soared, pushing him over the top and making him a fan favorite.
Fans from all around the world came to Nashville for the 2012 CMA Music Festival, but those who were not able to make the trip are still in luck! Luke Bryan and Kimberly Perry of the Band Perry are teaming up to host the summer’s hottest television music event recapping the CMA Music Festival. ‘Country’s Night to Rock,’ will air on ABC in September.
This week is shaping up to be a pretty decent one in the lives and careers of Alan Jackson and newcomer Jana Kramer. Both of their brand new albums hit stores last Tuesday, and now the charts are in. Jackson’s ‘Thirty Miles West’ knocked Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Blown Away’ out of the No. 1 slot, while Kramer’s self-titled project comes in at No. 5, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
This year will most definitely be one that Eric Church remembers for the rest of his life. In January, the singer scored his very first No. 1 single with ‘Drink in My Hand,’ and now he has returned to the top with his current hit, ‘Springsteen.’ The tune sits at No. 1 on both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts this week, making it the singer’s second consecutive chart-topping song.
Just because you’re one of country music’s biggest stars doesn’t mean you can’t get busted for even the silliest wrongdoings. Jason Aldean unfortunately found that out the hard way while enjoying a day on the beach on Monday afternoon (June 11).
David Nail is pretty much one of those singers who can sing just about anything and nail it (no pun intended) on the first try. His powerful pipes, smooth voice and emotional delivery are what makes him a definite staple country music. Nail is always one to hear praise on a job well done, but he often finds himself in the same situation looking at other artists in the same light. In this case, Adele.
The music world lost yet another icon on Tuesday (May 29). Legendary folk, bluegrass, blues and jazz guitarist Doc Watson passed away at 89-years-old after being hospitalized following a fall which required emergency surgery. Watson took his final breath at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., where he was in critical condition for several days in the wake of his abdominal surgery.
On Memorial Day, we remember our fallen American soldiers who have sacrificed their lives in all wars. These heroes fought for our freedom without selfishly thinking of what could be at stake for them and their families.
Following on the heels of Gloriana‘s recent performance on ‘The Bachelorette,’ Luke Bryan will now head to the hit show, set to air Monday, May 28 at 8PM ET on ABC. Dolly Parton is also set to appear on the show next week.
Last week it was party time once again for Lee Brice. This time, however, he was not celebrating a song he wrote for another artist, but rather his own hit song, ‘A Woman Like You.’ Brice and the song’s three writers — Phil Barton, Jon Stone and Johnny Bulford — gathered at CMA headquarters in Nashville where they were honored with the song that topped the country singles chart back in April.
Kenny Chesney is gearing up to head back out on the road on his first major stadium run since last summer’s Goin’ Coastal Tour. Not only is he sharing the stage with his fellow country music superstar Tim McGraw, but also famed Nashville musician Kenny Greenberg.
