Blake Shelton Snags Michael Buble for His ‘The Voice’ Team
With fall fast approaching, the third season of ‘The Voice‘ is upon us, and with it comes a new set of advisors to our favorite four coaches. Assisting Blake Shelton this season is not a fellow country star, but soulful pop crooner Michael Buble, known for his butter-smooth, Rat Pack style. This is a big prediction, but with Blake and Buble working in tandem, we’re thinking back-to-back season win
Chris Young Tour Bus Almost Catches Fire
One club that singer Chris Young doesn’t want membership in is the ‘Bus on Fire’ club. In recent months, the likes of Jerrod Niemann and Lee Brice have witnessed their tour vehicles fall victim to fiery blazes. Young was almost among their ranks last Friday (June 30), when his vehicle caught fire in Charlotte, N.C.
Willie Nelson Planning to Get Home in the Netherlands Due to New Pot Policy
Willie Nelson ought to change his first name to “Wily.” That’s because the pro-pot singer is smartly planning to either rent or purchase a home in the Netherlands in the next year so he can continue to buy marijuana legally. Local Dutch officials are planning to outlaw “drug tourism” next year, meaning that non-resident pot proponents can’t travel there to stock up. Nelson wants to skirt that prob
Trace Adkins Welcomes Grandson

Brad Paisley and Hank Williams Jr. ‘Get Drunk and Play Hank Williams’ at 2012 CMT Awards
The 2012 CMT Awards, which took place tonight (June 6), were too big for the auditorium, metaphorically speaking.

What a treat for fans!
Lady Antebellum Open 2012 CMT Music Awards With Hot Chelle Rae Mashup
Lady Antebellum both owned and opened the night at the 2012 CMT Music Awards by performing ‘We Owned the Night.’ After a verse and a chorus, the trio was quickly joined by those pop phenoms in Hot Chelle Rae.

Miranda Lambert Admits She Carries a Weapon for Protection
Miranda Lambert is one bada– broad (we mean that lovingly) that you do not want to cross. Why? Because much like the protagonist of her smash ‘Gunpowder and Lead,’ she carries a weapon. It may not be a shotgun, as the lyrics proclaim, but make no mistake — Lambert is armed. The reason she guns up? She was the recipient of a death threat and needs to protect herself, which she does by taking matter
