It’s hard to imagine tough-as-nails country gal Miranda Lambert getting so sick that she has to cancel shows, but unfortunately, that’s exactly what has happened this week. The normally energetic country star was slated to play at Jam in the Valley in Varysburg, N.Y. tonight (July 6), but according to Jam in the Valley officials, the ‘Over You’ hitmaker “has taken ill and has canceled all performances for this weekend as per her doctor’s orders.”
Although Keith Urban has fully enjoyed coaching talented singers on ‘The Voice’ in Australia, there’s no chance that the ‘You Gonna Fly’ hitmaker will trade in his guitar for a permanent reality TV contract anytime soon. While Urban would be thrilled to do another season of ‘The Voice,’ he told Australian radio’s Kyle & Jackie O Show that making music is still priority No. 1.
David Nail is pretty hardcore. Just last month, the ‘Let It Rain’ hitmaker left it all out on the field at the City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge during the CMA Music Festival in Nashville. In fact, he played so hard (and might we add, threw out so many members of the challenging team) that he suffered a minor fracture and a detached tendon in his hand. The good news is, now Nail is all patched up and he’s ready to brave another celebrity softball match.
Last November, when Lady Antebellum kicked off their 85-city We Own the Night tour in Knoxville, Tenn., they had no idea that by the end of the U.S. leg of the tour, they would have played to more than one million fans. Last Saturday night (June 30), the award-winning trio closed the North American portion of the tour by playing with Darius Rucker and Thompson Square at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, marking an attendance milestone of more than 1 million fans.
There’s no day quite like the Fourth of July to make Americans reflect on the freedoms and gifts we too often take for granted as citizens of the U.S.A. And nobody salutes the red, white and blue quite as often or as seriously as country music stars. In light of this year’s Independence Day, longtime country music king Tim McGraw paused to reflect on what makes America a great place to live.
Hank Williams, Jr.‘s latest release, ‘That Ain’t Good,’ is one for working men and women all over the country. With a bluesy country sound that beckons back to Williams’ heyday as the rowdy king of country in the ’80s, the lead single off of Jr.’s upcoming ‘Old School, New Rules’ album is an honest-to-goodness blue collar tune. The music video for ‘That Ain’t Good,’ and it will strike a chord with everyone who has ever gotten fed up at work.
You wouldn’t be able to tell from watching his rocking stage performances, but as it turns out, having a wife and two daughters has made Keith Urban a bit of a softie. In a recent interview with the Belfast Telegraph, the ‘For You’ singer admitted that sometimes even the most random things make him cry.
Carrie Underwood has been wowing her fans across the pond by paying tributes to bands to local bands. First, the award-winning singer put on a stunning rendition of Coldplay‘s ‘Fix You’ for concertgoers at Royal Albert Hall in London. Then, while in Melbourne, the ‘Good Girl’ singer delivered a real treat when she gave props to Aussie hitmakers INXS by singing ‘Never Tear Us Apart.’
Whether you love NASCAR or not, everyone knows that Danica Patrick is the fastest female driver around. In fact, Patrick has risen to racing star status by being one of the more successful female drivers in history. Really, who would be a better pick to star in Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ music video? After several hints by the country star and the racing phenom on Twitter, now we know that Patrick snagged the lead role in Lambert’s forthcoming clip.
Jay DeMarcus is no one-trick pony. In addition to being a mega-talented bassist and vocalist for Rascal Flatts, DeMarcus is about to flex his radio personality skills, too. The Nashville star has landed his very own radio show, ‘The Jay DeMarcus Show: Live From Flatts Shack’ on iHeartRadio’s Big Machine channel. The 60-minute program will debut on Thursday, June 28.
Every year, the CMA Songwriters Series travels to select cities to showcase the best troubadours in country music. This year, the program will include country music darling Carrie Underwood, who will get to make her first-ever appearance at the event in Boston on July 31. Underwood and other presenters will take turns giving raw performances of their most popular songs, and telling the stories that lie behind their hits.
