    Watch now: Dolly Parton debuts as a cartoon

    Through the years, Dolly Parton has often joked that her exaggerated looks and big hair make her seem like a cartoon — and now that’s become a reality: Dolly’s animated alter-ego, Little Dolly, makes her debut in a new series of lyric videos on YouTube. The thirteen clips go along with the tracks on Dolly’s first children’s album, I Believe in You. The new musical cartoons find Little Dolly exploring well-known places in the Volunteer State, as the on-screen lyrics aim to help kids learn to read. All the proceeds from I Believe in You go to help Dolly’s literacy […]

    A "jelly" Luke Bryan thinks everyone should ease up on Sexiest Man Alive Blake Shelton

    When Luke Bryan first learned that People had chosen Blake Shelton as its Sexiest Man Alive for 2017, he reacted much like Blake might’ve done if the situation had been reversed: by giving him grief.

    Jon Pardi insists "She Ain't In It," while teasing a top-secret collaboration with Miranda Lambert

    Has Jon Pardi recorded a top-secret duet with Miranda Lambert? That seems to be the case, judging from Jon’s cryptic comments in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight. Next year, the two head out together on Miranda’s Livin’ Like Hippies Tour, and not long ago, they bumped into each other while they were traveling. “I was sitting at the airport bar — because what else do you do in the airport? — [when] somebody tapped me on the shoulder,” Jon recalls. “[I] turned around and it was Miranda. She was like, ‘Hey, I saw you at the bar, you’re over […]

    "Marry Me": Why Thomas Rhett's new single is the polar opposite of his smash "Die a Happy Man"

    Thomas Rhett says his new single, “Marry Me,” represents a kind of worst-case scenario for him. “It’s my big ‘what if’ song,” he says of the third single from Life Changes. “I wrote it from the perspective of if I had never told my wife how I felt about her all those years ago. I probably would have been sitting at her wedding watching her marry someone else.” “Thankfully I DID tell her how I felt — it makes for a great song concept that so many people can relate to.” Most country fans know how TR and wife Lauren’s […]

    "Meant to Be": Florida Georgia Line releases an unexpected country single with pop star BeBe Rexha

    It was simply “Meant to Be”: Florida Georgia Line’s collaboration with pop star BeBe Rexha is their new country single. Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley didn’t originally expect the song would find a home on country radio, but they’ve decided to release it as a single, since some stations have already been playing it.   “Some of the coolest moments for us have been the ones we never planned,” says Tyler, who co-wrote “Meant to Be.”  “Going into the writing session that day in L.A., we had no idea that it would turn into this. Seeing how the fans are […]
