‘CBS This Morning‘ shared the below clips of Jason Aldean‘s recent interview with Ben Tracy, where Aldean took Tracy backstage on his sold-out tour and also opened up about his rapid rise to country stardom. Despite the fact that Aldean didn’t win at the Grammys, he had the top-selling country album of the year as well as the fifth bestselling album in all of music. The singer is currently on his My Kinda Party Tour, where Tracy caught up with him before a show in Orlando.
After a string of serious health issues and hospitalizations, 74-year-old Merle Haggard said in a statement on Wednesday that he’s “feeling good and ready to get back on the bus.” This comes after the Country Music Hall of Famer was hospitalized multiple times in the past few months, receiving treatment for double pneumonia, stomach ulcers, the removal of eight polyps from his colon and esophageal diverticulitis.
NBC’s new musical drama ‘Smash’ premiered on Monday night, taking in the story of what it takes to make it in a Broadway musical. Next Monday, on the second episode of the show, actress Megan Hilty (from ‘Wicked’) will perform a Broadway-style rendition of Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Crazy Dreams,’ according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Yep, it’s true that Brad Paisley has been taking some humorous shots at Paul McCartney‘s most recent album title. At the same time, it’s also true that Sir McCartney selected a moniker he most certainly assumed might take some flack from the music community. One can hardly land on a title like ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ without first thinking through the potential ramifications (and public commentaries).
On March 17, Reba McEntire will release her first televised concert special in more than 15 years. The 90-minute special, ‘All the Women I Am,’ will premiere on GAC. Encompassing the energy of McEntire’s live show, much of the footage for the TV special will come from her recent concert at Louisiana’s Cajun Dome, where the longtime performer had a film crew come along with her and roll tape.
Eric Church has never been one to hoist up the cost of his concert tickets to pad his pockets. In fact, he says that goes against his entire philosophy as an artist, as his goal has always been to get more people to his shows rather than more money per ticket sale. With this mentality, then, it’s not surprising that the Grammy-nominated singer is so peeved about what’s been happening at shows all along his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour. Church has some choice words for the big ticket brokers that have been purchasing his tickets and scalping them to fans.
Martina McBride and fellow hitmaker and country legend George Strait have been going at it together on the road for their 2012 tour, hitting arenas across the country. And while McBride enjoys playing to the packed-out venues that can fit thousands upon thousands of fans, she has a little something different up her sleeve for this spring: a more intimate theater tour that she’ll be doing all on her own.
After news of Randy Travis‘ 1:30AM arrest on a charge of suspicion of public intoxication circulated this morning, Travis came out with a public apology for his actions.

Country sweetheart Miranda Lambert has been in the news a good bit lately, and most of the headlines have revolved around the personal tragedies she’s encountered in the past couple of weeks. The ‘Baggage Claim’ singer had to deal with the death of her father-in-law, her childhood friend and even her beloved dog, Dixie. Though Lambert has been dealing with these losses, she kept most of her On Fire Tour in tact, but the emotion of everything overcame her at a Huntsville, Ala. show Thursday night. There, Lamber broke down crying in the middle of her nostalgic hit ‘The House That Built Me.’
Last Saturday night (Jan. 28), Vanessa Pritt from Charleston, W.V. was enjoying a Brad Paisley concert in Las Vegas with her boyfriend, Jason Davis, when Paisley reportedly handed Davis the mic in the middle of a song. Getting down on one knee, Davis asked Pritt to be his wife. Paisley, meanwhile, recorded the whole proposal from the stage on his iPhone.
As season two of ‘The Voice‘ gets ready to hit airwaves, one of the show’s celeb judges, Blake Shelton, is taking his season one pick on the road with him for his Well Lit and Amplified Tour. He invited season one finalist Dia Frampton to join the caravan as a supporting act alongside Justin Moore.
The new issue of Rolling Stone has just been revealed, and fronting the rock and pop culture mag is none other than Blake Shelton, joined by his fellow celebrity judges from NBC’s smash entertainment show ‘The Voice.’ In jeans and a black button-up, Shelton is a mixture of dapper and Nashville outlaw, with his outdoorsman, barbed wire and deer track tattoo exposed just below his rolled cuff.
