It's been one helluva year for the King of Country! George Strait celebrated his 61st birthday in May and notched his 60th No. 1 single. He has also enjoyed a completely sold out run for his two-year Cowboy Rides Away Tour -- which is his official goodbye from active touring -- but not from actively performing or making music. Now, Strait will be honored with the ASCAP Founders Award this November.
Laura Bell Bundy is back and better than ever after signing a new record deal with Big Machine Label Group and releasing a new single. But the singer and actress admits that she faced a rough patch when her first contract went sour.
Brad Paisley sat down with Sean Hannity of 'Hannity' on Fox News and talked about being one of the funniest men in country music, known for his sense of humor. He also discussed how he has been able to sustain his success over a long period of time. He did so without his trusty cowboy hat, too!
Sheryl Crow isn't trying to make eye patches fashionable, even if she does look fantastic when aping One-Eyed Willie. The singer merely adopted the black patch to protect her sore peeper. It seems that she injured her eye will playing tennis with her kids.
Kip Moore's signature red hat is as much a part of his look as George Strait's Resistol or Zac Brown's beanie. Important style decisions often come after hours of discussion and many meetings with fashion consultants. For Moore the look came after a trip to the beach.
Touring artists like Eli Young Band know what it feels like to be away from home too often. But even with their jam-packed travel schedules, their time apart from family is nothing compared to the burden that our soldiers overseas face -- something they realize.
There are few people who love animals more than Miranda Lambert. Not only does she take in strays time and time again (and is even moved to tears when animals are in need), she also continually strives to raise money -- lots of money -- all in the name of four-legged friends.
Julianne Hough has seen lots of great moments in her 24 years, as she's done some major film work, won 'Dancing With the Stars' and had hits on the country music charts. Yet, one of her greatest moments involves country star Blake Shelton, and it doesn't have to do with dancing or singing -- but it does involve tequila.
Some believe the R&B-influenced country sound of the '70s and '80s is poised to make a big comeback, and recent releases from Trace Adkins and Joe Nichols are evidence of that. Toby Keith's new song 'Drinks After Work' jumps the flashback needle, however. He's a bit ahead of his time in being behind the times.
A new release from George Strait is always a cause for celebration. 60 single number ones, also him seeing five out of his 40 albums to win the CMA Album of the Year trophy has him a legend in country music.
