Lady Antebellum‘s lovely, talented and kind-hearted Hillary Scott is doing her part to help others across the world. The singer is working in tandem with a family from Franklin, Tenn. to open a modernized orphanage in Haiti. This is a different, special and revolutionary type of orphanage, as it will be fashioned like a home that serves approximately eight children and will be headed by a mother and father. The aim is to recreate the family model for the children.
Country music is going high fashion on Feb. 28, as the always stylish Carrie Underwood will perform at the Nordstrom Symphony Fashion Show. The event will also include an exclusive presentation of the pre-Fall 2012 collection designed by the one and only Oscar de la Renta. How chic.
When we first met ‘American Idol‘ Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery just under a year ago, he sang Josh Turner‘s ‘Your Man’ a capella for the judges and was upstreamed to the next round. McCreery has not concealed the fact that he admires Turner and that he ultimately hopes to emulate Turner’s career. Even though Turner supports McCreery as he continues to evolve into a country superstar in his own right, he doesn’t return the admiration for McCreery’s on-the-go lifestyle right now.
It feels like only yesterday that Blake Shelton‘s charge Dia Frampton was the runner up on the debut season of ‘The Voice.’ Well, season two is upon us, and Shelton is already raring to go and plotting his methods for another round. Shelton revealed that he will retain last season’s strategy of picking the singers with the most unique and different voices for his team. Obviously, Shelton has no interest in cultivating a poker face during the audition round.
Alan Jackson was the subject of last night’s ‘Backstory’ on GAC, and the singer’s relationship with wife Denise was a focal point of the episode. Alan and Denise have been married since 1979, so their relationship factors heavily in his career and his music. The duo endured their fair share of ups and downs since that fateful meeting at a Dairy Queen, but through it all, they remain stronger than ever.
Brad Paisley has recorded and released a new song called ‘Hard Life,’ which was penned by his friend, 23-year-old Joe Kindregan. Kindregan suffers from A-T (ataxia-telangiectasia), which is a rare, fatal and genetic disease where symptoms of disorders like cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, immune deficiencies and cancer are manifested.
Mindy McCready continues to speak to the press about her recent actions, where she took her son Zander, 5, from her mother and step-father’s Florida home. The grandparents have custody of the boy, but McCready claims she had good reason to yank her son from his living situation.
Keith Urban may not be able to speak or sing while he recovers from throat surgery, which he had to remove a polyp from his vocal chord, but he will certainly continue to work and play guitar to keep himself busy. Urban will pass the time with good friend and fellow country superstar Brad Paisley — the two will simply handle their instruments, and you certainly don’t need to talk in order to play guitar. That’s why musical is a universal and voiceless language.
Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles is off the market. The singer quietly married her longtime beau, entrepreneur Justin Miller, in a small ceremony in Tennessee over the weekend. Nettles and Miller have been dating for over two years.
It’s that time again, country fans! The 2012 season of ‘American Idol’ will kick off this January. It’ll be the show’s 11th season and let’s hope that this season follows the same trajectory as the last, when the final two contestants were country artists! Will Scotty McCreery‘s heir apparent make it to the top? Will we find our next Lauren Alaina? It’s certainly an exciting prospect, since country music dominated the show last season. That trend could very well continue into 2012.
Keith Urban is about to go on “complete vocal lockdown” for three weeks after he has throat surgery, so he took two minutes to issue a video message, thanking fans their support, love, cards, messages and gift baskets. Urban is about to have a polyp surgically removed and is expected to make a full recovery.
