It’s been a long road for Tiffany, who has weathered plummeting sales, lawsuits, divorce, and the shadow of her teenybopper past over the last couple of decades. But for the singer who was only 10 when she made her professional debut by singing a duet with country artist Jack Reeves — and who later got her first big break from none other than Hoyt Axton — the road always led back to Nashville.
They may not be household names yet, but with an American Music Award nomination and a T Bone Burnett-produced debut album to their credit, the Secret Sisters are on the rise.
The duo — otherwise known as real-life sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers — will compete with Mumford and Sons, the Civil Wars and Jessica Lea Mayfield for Best New/Emerging Artist honors at this year’s AMAs, scheduled for Sunday, November 20.
They’re tourmates and ‘American Idol’ alums — but are Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina also something more? It’s a question they’ve been asked repeatedly lately, and one they’ve done a great job of refusing to answer.
McCreery and Alaina continued their obfuscation during a recent appearance at the Google campus, dodging yet another volley from the ‘are they or aren’t they?’ camp when the subject came up as part of a series of questions about their feelings on Google’s new social network, Google+.
It’s been awhile since Billy Dean released some new music — and even longer since he tasted the kind of chart success he enjoyed with his first few albums in the early ’90s — but he’s making plans to change all that.
Dean has partnered with the Naturipe Farms collective for a series of new recordings, starting with a digital EP that’s currently available on iTunes). He also has plans for a full album in the fall. It might sound like an unusual partnership, but country music and farming is a pretty natural fit — and Dean stands squarely behind the company’s mission to help promote the sale of locally grown produce.
He got married to Miranda Lambert, he’s a judge on NBC’s hit competition series ‘The Voice,’ he has a number one country single and one of the year’s best-selling albums — and now he’s a tour guide for the Grand Ole Opry.
The quartet — Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Christina Aguilera — took the stage for a loose version of the song, starting off in unison before Shelton, Levine, and Cee Lo took turns soloing at the mic. Aguilera, naturally, added plenty of melismatic vocal runs.
He isn’t even 18 yet, but Scotty McCreery has already won ‘American Idol’ and scored a hit single. Now, he can add a ‘Tonight Show’ appearance to his steadily growing list of accomplishments.
McCreery visited the show on June 15, performing his debut single, ‘I Love You This Big,’ accompanied by a trio of background singers. With the song rising the charts following his ‘Idol’ victory, McCreery is in full-on media blitz mode, and he’s probably approaching the point where he could sing the song in his sleep, but he turned in a rousing performance before an appreciative studio audience.
