Toby Keith, Zac Brown Band, Jamey Johnson, Darius Rucker and Willie Nelson all have one thing in common: country music (Hey — if there’s something else, we don’t know about it). The country supergroup took the stage halfway through the 2012 CMT Music Awards to perform Nelson’s ‘Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.’
If the rest of the Zac Brown Band‘s new album is half as fun as ‘The Wind,’ fans are in for a great summer in 2012. The ever-growing country jam band performed their new single live for the first time at the 2012 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night, and proved why they belong in discussions about country music’s top musicians.
For the second time in less than a month, two rows of fans will go home from an award show picking confetti out of their hair and outfits following a Carrie Underwood performance. At the end of ‘Good Girl’ at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, it rained gold on unsuspecting fans below.
With a wall of mechanical fans blowing hair all across her face, Carrie Underwood performed the title track from her new ‘Blown Away’ album at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. The country singer’s performance lacked the luminaries, exotic dancers and costumes many of the previous artists employed, but it lacked nothing in talent. She was as vocally strong as she’s ever been during a televised performance.
There are dozens (if not hundreds) of country songs about moms, and many country singers are even mothers themselves. For this reason, the Mother’s Day holiday is sure to be one that is surely not going to be overlooked on any humble artist’s calendar. Take a look at the women who helped shape the ladies and gents of country music — the ones that give us so much wonderful music year after year — in this list of Country Stars and Their Moms.
Bucky Covington‘s tour bus was involved in an accident on I-65 in Birmingham, Ala. on Thursday. A press release indicates that no one was seriously hurt, although a few passengers were taken to the hospital for examination.
Don’t look now, but Mother’s Day 2012 is on Sunday. Sure, there are the typical gifts — flowers, a nice dinner, a sweet card — but aren’t those a little boring and overdone? This year, try personalizing a gift to hit Mom’s country music tastes. This list of gift ideas for Mother’s Day includes 10 things she’ll absolutely love to own, which means you’ll be on her good side for at least another month or two.
Just when judges were beginning to believe 18-year-old country cutie Skylar Laine could win ‘American Idol,’ viewers sent her home. The Brandon, Miss. native was eliminated on Thursday night, receiving the fewest votes of the remaining five contestants.
Blake Shelton couldn’t choose between the two contestants left on Team Blake. Fortunately for him, he didn’t have to. On Tuesday night (May 1), America chose Jermaine Paul to be the lone representative from the country coach’s team when the show begins its final descent next week.
Kip Moore‘s first gold single almost never happened. The singer — whose debut album ‘Up All Night’ is in stores April 24 — explains that he and songwriter Dan Couch were finished writing for the day, but pulled out the guitars again to write ‘Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck.’ Hear him tell the whole entertaining story in the video below, which is brought to you exclusively by Taste of Country.
Dick Clark was a man that tied fans of all genres of music together, so the news of his death is a hard pill to swallow for many. For almost 40 years, fans of rock, rap, pop and country music would tune in to watch “America's oldest teenager” count in the new year.
Joe Nichols is no doubt exhausted, but elated, this afternoon. His wife Heather gave birth to Dylan River Nichols on Tuesday. The couple just announced the pregnancy in February, but clearly she was further along than they let everyone know.
