We think it’s safe to say that this summer is shaping up to be one of Thomas Rhett‘s best yet. The young singer-songwriter just found out he has been summoned by Toby Keith to be one of the openers on the ‘Red Solo Cup’ hitmaker’s headlining Live in Overdrive Tour.
The lyrics to the Dirt Drifters‘ latest single ‘There She Goes’ were crafted in the early stages of the band’s formation by three of its current members, along with the help of two other key people who helped launch them into being one of country music’s hottest new bands on the rise.
Lauren Alaina is ready for the hot weather, and now she has the hairstyle to prove it! Over the weekend, Alaina had her long locks chopped off and is now sporting a short hairdo that hits her at the chin and makes her look much more mature.
Congratulations are in order for Mindy McCready and her boyfriend David Wilson, who brought a new baby boy into the world this week. Zayne arrived on Monday morning (April 9). He is the couple’s first child together.
Rodney Atkins is one of the latest country stars to pack up his bags and head overseas to visit and entertain the U.S. troops, who continue to fight day in and day out to defend our freedom. The singer’s trip to Afghanistan came in the midst of other tour stops in Texas, Chicago, Miami and Orlando and was Atkins’ first time stepping foot on the soil where the fearless soldiers work hard to keep America safe.
Jake Owen is on a roll with topping the country charts. This week, his latest hit ‘Alone With You’ claims the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Country Singles chart. The tune is Owen’s second consecutive single to do so, following his multi-week No. 1 smash, ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night.’
Next weekend (Sunday, April 1), the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from Las Vegas. Many of the usual suspects fill out the nominees for the 2012 show, including Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum and Kenny Chesney. But one name missing from the duo category this year will be Brooks and Dunn‘s Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks following their public parting of ways in 2010.
Taylor Swift and George Strait split the No. 1 title this week, as their songs top the two main country singles charts. Swift’s ‘Ours’ takes the leading slot on Billboard, while Strait’s ‘Love’s Gonna Make It Alright’ snatches the No. 1 position on Mediabase / Country Aircheck.
The ‘Today’ show will continue their week-long run of country music co-hosts this week with the addition of Kellie Pickler to the lineup. Pickler will fill in for Kathy Lee Gifford this coming Friday (March 23) on the NBC morning program. The ‘Tough’ songstress will join ‘Today’ show co-host Hoda Kotb during the fourth hour of the show.
Summertime is just around the corner, which means country music’s hottest artists are gearing up for tour season to launch into overdrive. And there’s no exception for Toby Keith, who just announced his 2012 tour coming in June.
