Dierks Bentley is a member of the million mile club. The singer just wrapped the Canadian leg of his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour in Winnipeg, Manitoba on Thursday, Feb. 23. Upon crossing the border to re-enter his home (or is that ‘Home?’) country of the U.S., “Old Goldie,” his tour bus, logged its millionth mile. Congrats to Bentley on all that hard work, making fans the grassroots way by hitting the road and playing shows. But more importantly, congrats to Old Goldie. It’s quite an accomplishment, even if we’re wondering if she needs a new transmission thanks to all those miles.
There’s raging speculation over which artists will fill the two vacant mentor positions on the ‘X Factor‘ panel. Heavyweight pop divas like Mariah Carey and Beyonce have seen their names tossed into the ring. Another emerging contender for one of the coveted slots? LeAnn Rimes – and with good reason. ‘X Factor’ could use a dose of country, stat.
Jake Owen brought some serious twang to the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ indoor stage on Tuesday (Feb. 21). He performed the customary pair of songs, ripping through ‘Alone With You’ and ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night.’ The performance was a good enough reason to stay up late, but in case you missed it, you can watch footage of each song below.
That is what Taylor Swift said more than once to Ellen DeGeneres on her namesake show this morning (Feb. 21) while promoting her animated film ‘The Lorax’ with hottie and supposed boyfriend Zac Efron. While they would make quite an attractive couple, Swift repeatedly shot down the rumors, though Ellen kept jokingly referring to them as a couple throughout their interview.
Rascal Flatts fans will want to plan a trip to their local multiplex on Thursday, April 5. That’s when the country power trio, in conjunction with AEG Live and NCM Fathom, will present a special, one-night-only theater event across the nation. The Flatts on the big screen? Does it get any better than that?

Trace Adkins has been named the spokesman for Pilot Flying J’s soon-to-be-launched loyalty program, which is set to kick off this spring.

Craig Campbell is revving his engines.

Alan Jackson will cruise onto ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ on Friday, March 30 to perform his new single, ‘So You Don’t Have To Love Me Anymore.’ If you haven’t thought that far ahead about your plans, now you have a pretty good idea of what you will be doing that evening.
Whitney Houston’s funeral takes place today (Feb. 18) and the news of the pop diva’s death has rippled through the entire music community for the past week. Even Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott is feeling the effects of the tragic loss. Scott admitted that she especially felt Houston’s death hanging in the air at last week’s 2012 Grammy Awards ceremony. The female voice of Lady A, who picked up the Country Album of the Year statue for ‘Own the Night,’ said the feeling of sadness was palpable through and through.
Taylor Swift‘s ‘Safe & Sound’ is the first song from ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, and the accompanying video features Swift walking in the barren woods, wearing a loose-fitting white dress. She’s ditched her signature glam ringlets and lipstick and looks like a Plain Jane as she navigates a lonely trail. It’s winter and there are no leaves on the trees. Swift is singing and looking around in apprehension as she walks through the desolate landscape on bare feet, no less. It’s easily one of Swift’s artsy-est videos of her career, and she doesn’t utilize much in the way of plot or props to effectively tell the story.
