Anytime you have two superstar musical or celebrity acts dating — or married, in this case (think Brad and Angelina or Faith and Tim) — it’s only a matter of time before that couple realizes the freedoms they have given up by being in the spotlight. While Miranda Lambert and her country hitmaker husband Blake Shelton have been well known for a couple of years now, Lambert admits that her husband’s standing appearance on ‘The Voice‘ has begun to change how normal their lives can be.
Country hitmaker Joe Nichols and his wife, Heather, are about to get a visit from the stork, according to People. Nichols, who released his record ‘It’s All Good’ at the beginning of November, has one 13-year-old daughter, Ashelyn, from a previous relationship, but is extremely excited to be expecting for the first time with his wife of more than four years.
Sugarland have long been embroiled in a lawsuit surrounding the August 13, 2011 stage collapse at their show at the Indiana State Fair. Now, responding to lawsuits coming at them, they’re claiming one last time that the incident, which left seven dead and more than 40 injured, was not their fault.
Oh how the plot is thickening between tell-it-like-it-is country gal Miranda Lambert and controversial hip-hop artist Chris Brown. If you haven’t heard, the two have been in a bit of a virtual tiff, with Lambert tweeting her honest feelings for the star who spent time on probation in 2009 for beating then-girlfriend Rihanna. The battle began with Lambert expressing feelings about Brown getting stage time for two Grammy performances this year, and now the male singer is fighting back.
Keith Urban is eagerly gearing up for his appearance as a celebrity coach on Australia’s version of the hit show ‘The Voice.’ And while he admits he’s looking for someone to really capture his attention, the ‘You’ll Think of Me’ singer says he’s not about putting people down when they don’t make the cut.
Gwyneth Paltrow made a giant leap onto the country scene last year with the film ‘Country Strong’ and the film’s soundtrack, which featured four of Paltrow’s songs. Although she generated major label interest with her performances in both, Paltrow hasn’t quite become a mainstay in the country world — at least, not yet, that is. A recent tweet from Hank Williams‘ daughter Holly Williams has fans wondering if Paltrow is in the genre to stay.
Perhaps guitar-slinging favorite John Mayer was a little more impacted by his time with Taylor Swift than he originally thought. Though the ‘Heartbreak Warfare’ singer hasn’t quite gone country, he just released a clip from his upcoming single ‘Shadow Days,’ and we detect a bit of a twang in there. The single is the first from Mayer’s impending record ‘Born and Raised,’ which doesn’t yet have an official release date.
Blake Shelton became a country star on his music alone, but since he first appeared on NBC’s ‘The Voice‘ last season, the 6-foot-5 man’s man with a soft side has truly become a favored celebrity. In a recent interview, Shelton talked about his role on the hit show, his marriage to no-nonsense country artist Miranda Lambert and why he didn’t know how to get to his own home when he was living in L.A.
Taylor Swift just came out with a behind-the-scenes video from her music video shoot from ‘Safe & Sound,’ the lead single on the upcoming ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack. The haunting mood of the song, which also features The Civil Wars, translates so perfectly to the almost colorless video. In the below clip, Swift catches the vision as soon as she steps out into the cold of the barren winter woods.
Lionel Richie is a legend, to say the least, and now he’s taking a rather legendary step, going back to his roots and releasing a full album of country duets with some of the most famous country stars in the business. The album, named after Richie’s hometown of ‘Tuskegee,’ is set to drop March 27, and the first single from the record, a Richie and Shania Twain duet of the smash hit ‘Endless Love,’ released Feb. 7.
Blake Shelton fans will be excited to learn that on Season 3 of NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ when one of those iconic red chairs swivels around, their favorite country papa bear will still be sitting in it. The Wrap is reporting that Shelton has signed on for another season of the show, along with all three of the other celebrity coaches — Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine.
After Chris Brown was given the stage for not one but two Grammy performances this year, Miranda Lambert has had no problem stepping up to let her fans know how she feels about the hip-hop artist and his past as an abuser. Not only did she tweet several times with her feelings on the matter, but Lambert finally took her anger to the stage at a show this week, as seen in the below video Taste of Country received from a fan.
