An artist truly has made it when he or she is profiled on ’60 Minutes.’ Taylor Swift is the latest music star to be featured on the news magazine program, which looked at her role as the poet laureate of puberty, the spokeswoman responsible for a generation of young girls — and her famous open mouth, hands on cheeks expression of shock and awe whenever fans scream for her or when she picks up another award. The profile also examined how she’s managed to cross genres and remain beloved in both the country and pop worlds.
The recent Penn State sex abuse scandal has been a constant in national news headlines over the past few weeks. Due to the ubiquitous story, country singer Vince Gill was reminded of a situation in his past where he was a near victim of sexual abuse.
‘Survivor: South Pacific’ castaway and country singer Whitney Duncan is denying that she engaged in a scandalous affair — and that she cheated on the husband no one knew she was married to while on the island. Sources claim that the blonde beauty was already in the process of divorcing, so it’s technically not cheating.
Luke Bryan‘s new video for ‘I Don’t Want This Night to End’ is more like a mini movie than just another music video. The music even stops mid-video in favor of some dialogue, and the action ends with a “to be continued” cliffhanger.
Lauren Alaina may have not written the richly emotional song ‘The Locket’ on her debut album, ‘Wildflower,’ but she is deeply connected to it on many levels — and the teen put all of her heart into it when she recorded it.
Brad Paisley was the subject of a recent ‘Nightline’ profile as he promoted his new book ‘Diary of a Player: How My Musical Heroes Made a Guitar Man Out of Me,’ and on the TV special, he dropped a bombshell: He was recently pulled over for a suspected DUI. The only caveat was that … Paisley wasn’t drunk! In fact, he doesn’t drink or smoke at all.
When you go behind the scenes with Blake Shelton, you know you are in for a laugh. Or two. Or 20. The singer took fans inside his world when filming the video for his cover of ‘Footloose,’ which coincided with the remake of the film. Shelton shared his memories pertaining to the film like only he can!
Wynonna Judd was in attendance at late IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon’s funeral on Saturday morning (October 22). The singer delivered heartbreaking renditions of both ‘Amazing Grace’ and ‘I Can Only Imagine’ at the services, which took place in St. Petersburg, Fla. Given the emotionally devastating circumstances, it wouldn’t be a stretch to think that this was one of the hardest performances of Judd’s life. Being called upon to sing at such a sad time requires incredible strength.
Someone over at MLB sure loves country music. Last night, Scotty McCreery sang the National Anthem at the first game of the World Series. He was followed by fellow country superstar Trace Adkins, who belted out the song this evening at before Game 2 between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals.
Taylor Swift‘s 2012 dance card keeps filling up, and 2011 still has two-and-a-half months left! The singer has been busy penning songs for the follow-up album to ‘Speak Now,’ which is due out next year. She will undoubtedly be promoting her debut fragrance Wonderstruck through the end of this year and beyond, as it’s a long-term promotional commitment. But Swift recently dropped another hint as to what she’ll be up to: She may have an acting gig in her future.
