    Luke Bryan Takes on Beyonce and One Direction at the 2014 AMAs

    Without a doubt, Luke Bryan is the country torchbearer at this year’s American Music Awards, as the only artist from the genre nominated in the all-inclusive Artist of the Year category. Luke confesses it’s a little hard to believe he’s up against the likes of Beyonce and One Direction. “Anytime I’m in the room with all of music, I get really, really inspired. I’m very flattered. I always think about representing country music in the best way I know,” he says. “I just love being in that room. It’s always fun going out to the AMAs and seeing all of… Read more

    Trisha Yearwood and Lady A Go Viral for No Shave November

    Trisha Yearwood and Lady Antebellum are going viral for No Shave November. Typically, for the campaign, men grow beards and mustaches to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. But when Trisha heard about a female friend in the business who vowed not to shave her legs for the month, she decided to help her out, taping a YouTube video that changed the words of her first hit to “She’s Got Leg Hair Like a Boy.” Then, Lady A got in on the act, with a little help from Meghan Trainor. The trio changed the lyrics of “All About… Read more

    Lee Ann Womack Adds Steel Guitar to Thanksgiving Day Performance of National Anthem

    Texas native Lee Ann Womack will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving Day game, and she’s got something unusual planned — steel guitarist Paul Franklin will accompany her. “When I was asked, I didn’t just want to go and sing, I wanted to really invest this performance of our national anthem with something that makes us all reconsider what the song is expressing,” she says. “If you’ve ever heard… or really listened to Paul’s musicianship and the emotions he brings out… I think having him play opens up so many aspects of what Francis Scott Key was… Read more

    Darius Rucker Enjoys His European Adventure

    When Darius Rucker wraps up the European leg of his True Believers tour this Sunday in Dublin, Ireland, chances are he’ll have taken in a historic building or two in his spare time. “The thing I really love to do is I love to go around and see old churches and museums and stuff,” he says, “because we think if something was built in the 1800s, we think it’s old. You know, you go over there and something was built in 39 B.C. and it’s still up. I think that’s pretty cool.” Darius’s trip took him to Berlin and Munich,… Read more

    Miranda Lambert Raises $66,000 for Rescue Dogs

    Miranda Lambert’s custom Ram Laramie Longhorn truck helped raise nearly $66,000 for her MuttNation Foundation. The truck itself netted just shy of $55,000 in an online auction, with the remaining $11,000 coming from signed guitars, CD’s and 2015 concert tickets. “I’m happy to see everyone come together to raise so much money for MuttNation Foundation, which is so close to my heart,” Miranda says. “I appreciate Ram for donating the truck to me to auction off and for making this all possible.
