Keith Urban just finished with ‘The Voice’ in Australia, and it looks like he won’t be gone from his homeland long. The singer announced the first dates of his 2013 world tour today. That’s the lead story in today’s Roundup. But you can also find out why Kenny Chesney and Katy Perry will be performing together and help decide country music’s most eligible bachelor.
Nobody saw this coming. Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles made a stunning announcment this morning that is sure to affect how her and Kristian Bush travel this year and beyond. Find the story at the top of today’s Daily Roundup. You’ll also find a link to preview Kenny Chesney‘s new album in it’s entirety, and learn what big honor Eric Church earned.
Last week Kenny Chesney fans stood up to rising star Hunter Hayes, ending his run as Showdown champion with ‘Wanted.’ ‘Come Over,’ the second single from Chesney’s ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ album, is the new song to beat, something Blake Shelton will try to do with ‘Over’ this week.
Earlier this week, Carrie Underwood came out as a supporter of gay marriage. It looks like she wasn’t the first country superstar to do so. Over the past decade or longer, a number of the genres biggest names — men and women — gave a thumbs up to marriage equality. Find out who is willing to stand alongside Underwood, and listen to a new song from Miranda Lambert and RaeLynn in the Daily Roundup below.
Josh Turner didn’t plan on creating his most traditional album to date. It just sort of happened. The singer recently told Taste of Country that there was no agenda when he began recording, but the men he worked with ultimately shaped his fifth studio album. And of course, the Big Man had his say.
Could Blake Shelton‘s days on ‘The Voice’ be numbered? The singer says he wants to be a part of the show forever, but at the same time says he’s not real happy about the upcoming season. Find out why in the Daily Roundup. Also, watch Kenny Chesney‘s steamy video for ‘Come Over,’ and see a picture of his adorable new puppy.
Prior to his ‘Come Over’ video, seeing Kenny Chesney without a hat on was as common as seeing Blake Shelton in a dress. We’re not saying either has never happened before, but there’s little picture evidence to prove it. However in the new, just released music video the singer proudly shows off his smooth head as a bikini-clad babe hangs on his arm. Which version of the country singer do you like better?
