Taylor Swift lived out a real-life Cinderella story at Saturday night’s annual Nashville Symphony Ball. The ‘Love Story’ songstress dressed to impress in a romantic silver and blue ball gown, ready to be honored with this year’s Harmony Award — an award which is bestowed on an individual who “exemplifies the harmonious spirit of Nashville’s thriving musical community.”
Blake Shelton got a glimmer of good news yesterday after a heavy week. His father, Dick Shelton, who was taken to the hospital for pneumonia on Dec. 5, could be released as soon as Friday. The ‘God Gave Me You’ hitmaker breathed a virtual sigh of relief when he announced the potential news to his Twitter followers, saying, “Thank you all for the prayers for my dad… Hoping he gets to go home Friday.”
The best dressed artists at any given music awards show are often as news-making as the winners themselves, and tonight’s 2011 American Country Award’ best dressed were no exception. We want to bring special attention to adorable ‘American Idol’ duo Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, who both made our list of the ACAs’ most stylish, which is pretty impressive given their short awards show resume.
The 2011 American Country Awards were a huge success, with many of country music’s hottest stars traveling 2,000 miles from Nashville to Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena just to show their faces on the FOX network. Unfortunately, some of the outfits that the artists packed to wear to the event were not as big of a hit, which quickly landed them on our worst dressed list, as seen in this gallery of pictures.
Chris Young is taking a month-long break from drinking — or at least, that’s the goal. The ‘Tomorrow’ hitmaker shared via his Twitter page that he’s inciting No Alcohol December following the ever-popular No Shave November, which means he won’t drink until after Christmas.
From the sound of it, Keith Urban will be better in no time following a successful throat surgery. The ‘Without You’ singer underwent the outpatient procedure to remove a polyp on his vocal chords earlier this week and thankfully, came out unscathed.
Tim McGraw is still searching for greener pastures. The iconic country singer is seeking to cut ties with his record label, Curb Records, once and for all, just so he can have the freedom to get new music to his patiently waiting fans. McGraw and Curb will go face to face in court starting Tuesday to hopefully find a resolution.
You could say that Blake Shelton is a big advocate of his First Amendment right to free speech. OK, Shelton likes to run his mouth. The ‘Honey Bee’ hitmaker is notorious for using Twitter as an outlet for his thoughts — whatever they may be — which has sometimes shown him backlash from angry groups like PETA and GLAAD. To celebrate his freedoms, however, Shelton has jumped on board with the Free to Tweet campaign, which will in turn encourage kids to do the same to earn money for school.
Taylor Swift is thoroughly enjoying her life in the spotlight, and what else could she really need? The chart-topping songstress has millions of fans, countless awards and even more hit singles. And though she doesn’t currently have a boyfriend, Swift told ‘60 Minutes‘ that one day she’d love to be married with kids — lots of kids.
Scotty McCreery has something to be extra thankful for this year. The 18-year-old ‘American Idol’-winner-turned-country-superstar announced on Wednesday, Nov. 23, that his debut album, ‘Clear as Day,’ has reached gold status.
