Will Tim McGraw Join ‘A Star Is Born’ Remake?

Clint Eastwood is famous in Hollywood for being a fast, no-nonsense director who brings his films in on time and under budget, but his next project — a remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ — is having trouble just getting started.

According to CMT’s sources, DiCaprio’s loss could end up being Tim McGraw‘s gain.

Kelly Clarkson Says She’d Record with Miranda Lambert and Adele

Brad Paisley Is Inspired By Eminem and Kanye West

The top of the country singles charts is familiar territory for Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood — their duet ‘Remind Me,’ currently number one, is his 20th chart-topper, and her 14th.
