In his single ‘Tattoos on this Town,’ Jason Aldean weaves a tale of memories made in a small town, comparing them to tattoos. The lyric that ends the first verse inspired Natchez, Miss. resident Keith Partridge to craft the perfect marriage proposal idea.
Keith Urban‘s fans may have been disappointed when the ‘For You’ singer had to postpone his annual All for the Hall benefit concert due to vocal cord surgery. Though the concert was originally set to take place mid-January, Urban’s vocal rest caused him to reschedule the annual Country Music Hall of Fame fundraiser for tonight, April 10. And while fans had to wait three months for the event, Urban went out of his way this morning to make it well worth their while.
Yep, it’s still going on. If you’ve missed out on the ongoing mini-drama that is Ashton Kutcher and Justin Moore (with a touch of Miranda Lambert thrown in for kicks), allow us to summarize for you. At the ACM Awards on April 1, Kutcher got onstage to present Lambert with an award wearing an over-the-top red Western jacket and cowboy hat. He sang an unimpressive few bars of George Strait‘s ‘I Cross My Heart,’ which was a delight to the crowd, but not so much to a few country stars.
To say that Jake Owen had quite the week last week would be a vast understatement. The country singer with Floridian roots saw his single ‘Alone With You‘ climb to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Songs chart, where it’s still sitting pretty above the rest. Whether it was because Owen was already on top of the world or because he felt especially emotional playing for his hometown Vero Beach, Fla. crowd, Owen went ahead and popped the question to girlfriend Lacey Buchanan on Saturday night (April 7).
On Thursday, April 5, nearly 600 elementary students at East Tennessee’s Doak Elementary School got a surprise meet and greet with award-winning sibling trio the Band Perry. Though the students didn’t expect the visit from the ‘All Your Life’ singers, they certainly deserved it. The elementary school, which the Perrys attended when they were young, had just raised more than $40,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Legendary singer George Jones was finally released from the hospital after being admitted six days ago, on March 29, for an upper respiratory infection. His publicist, Kirt Webster, said in a public statement that the 80-year-old Jones “wants to thank all his friends and fans for their prayers and well wishes over the past few days.”
If there’s one country gal who’s not going to stand quietly while someone makes fun of her or her people, it’s Miranda Lambert. The sassy sweetheart didn’t seem to think Ashton Kutcher’s little “performance,” nor his over-the-top country getup at Sunday night’s ACM Awards was too cute.
The 2012 ACM Awards are shaping up to be quite an entertaining evening, with new country stars being added to the celebrity lineup of performers each day. That’s in addition to a live onstage wedding, and now, a list of country talents set to bring special duets to the ACM stage. The Academy announced today (March 29) the lineup of special collaborations that are slated to be a part of country music’s “party of the year.”
As the president of Farm Aid, it’s no secret that Willie Nelson is a supporter of family farmers across the nation, and the country legend also recently spoke up in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement. But there’s another — perhaps less championed — cause that Nelson cares deeply about, and that’s making sure animals have a good home and are treated well. The ‘Always on My Mind’ singer recently rescued two neglected horses from an abusive environment.
‘The Hunger Games’ premiere finally came and went, and according to Forbes, the film did even better at the box office than originally expected. And while this means major profits for Lions Gate Entertainment, it also means hefty dividends for the musicians behind the film’s soundtrack, including names like Taylor Swift, the Civil Wars, Miranda Lambert and the Secret Sisters. In the end, it looks as though Swift will take home the biggest paycheck, since she has two songs on the record.
While most celebrities are known for random party photos or the occasional didn’t-mean-for-anyone-to-see-that-moment snapshots, Taylor Swift recently retweeted a friend’s candid photo of her — playing dress-up. Looking like happy little girls enjoying a moment of delight, Swift and pal Claire Kislinger are decked out in charming dresses, and Swift’s appears to be a wedding gown with a matching veil of some sort.
On Wednesday, Texas native and 2010 ‘American Idol‘ finalist Casey James made an appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ to perform the lead single from his self-titled debut, which just dropped March 20. Performing ‘Let’s Don’t Call It a Night’ for the studio and television audiences, James seemed quite relaxed and natural wielding his electric guitar with his band.
