Miranda Lambert’s Revolution Continues Tour Extended for 20 More Dates

With the whirlwind of a year Miranda Lambert has had, she could hardly be blamed for wanting to unplug and take it easy for awhile. Give the girl credit for gumption, though — not only is she not clearing her schedule, she’s actually adding to it.

Lambert has extended her The Revolution Continues tour, adding 20 dates to a run that was supposed to end in August, but will now keep her on the road through late October.

Taylor Swift Inspires a Real-Life Wedding Proposal

Taylor Swift knows a thing or two about how to tell a ‘Love Story’ through song — and a few days ago, she helped play a role in a real-life marriage proposal.

When Taylor’s tour stopped in Detroit last February, she met up with WYCD DJ Jason ‘The 300 Pound Cowboy’ and his girlfriend, Kelli, and hit it off with the couple. As the night drew to a close, Taylor’s mother warned them, “Next time I see you two, you’d better be engaged!”

Trace Adkins Says He’s Come a Long Way on His New Album, ‘Proud to Be Here’

Trace Adkins named his new album ‘Proud to Be Here,’ and that sums up his career outlook pretty nicely.

Adkins might be riding high on the charts now, with a string of bestselling records and hit singles to his credit, but he still remembers how he felt when he was just starting out — and, as he proved during a recent interview with Taste of Country, he knows how far he’s come.

Country Singer Robert Earl Keen Tells Kings of Leon to ‘Man Up’

At this point, it’s pretty clear that Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill was dealing with a lot more than just heat exhaustion when he left the stage during the band’s show in Dallas last Friday — and that the band was thinking about more than the weather when it pulled the plug on its American tour.

‘I Love Country Music’ Singer Jack Barlow Dead at 87

Jack Barlow, the voice behind ‘I Love Country Music’ and other hits, passed away on Friday after a lengthy struggle with an undisclosed illness. He was 87.

A World War Two veteran, Barlow was a relative late bloomer in the music business. He was 40 when he finally moved to Nashville, where his distinctive baritone quickly scored him a record deal and a string of ’60s hits that included his signature number, ‘I Love Country Music,’ as well as ‘Catch the Wind’ and ‘Birmingham Blues.’

‘American Idol’ Stars Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina Remain Coy on Dating Rumors [VIDEO]

They’re tourmates and ‘American Idol’ alums — but are Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina also something more? It’s a question they’ve been asked repeatedly lately, and one they’ve done a great job of refusing to answer.

Dolly Parton Says Fan Once Left a Baby on Her Doorstep

A great song is capable of moving the listener on a pretty intimate emotional level, so it’s only natural that fans often try to find ways of showing their appreciation for an artist’s music — even if the artist is successful enough that gifts are clearly unnecessary.
