Toby Keith, Zac Brown Band, Jamey Johnson, Darius Rucker and Willie Nelson all have one thing in common: country music (Hey — if there’s something else, we don’t know about it). The country supergroup took the stage halfway through the 2012 CMT Music Awards to perform Nelson’s ‘Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.’
After two years, John Mayer finally responded to Taylor Swift‘s song ‘Dear John,’ and he didn’t have nice things to say about being on the receiving end of her scorn. That’s the top story from today’s Daily Roundup, but you’ll also find Miranda Lambert‘s new song, a surprise dignitary at tonight’s CMT Music Awards and the next songs in the Top 100 Country Songs list.
John Mayer has felt the wrath of Taylor Swift‘s guitar and pen, and he didn’t like it. The pop-singer acknowledges that ‘Dear John’ — an album cut from Swift’s 2010 ‘Speak Now’ album — is about him, but adds that he didn’t know that he’d hurt her until the song came out.
Every once in awhile, an artist like Miranda Lambert needs to remind the country music community what crazy looks like. All this talk of marriage, babies and puppy dogs could have left some (unwisely) wondering if Nashville’s most explosive firecracker had settled into life as a domestic diva. ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ is Lambert breathing fire again.
If heartbreak was as much fun as the Zac Brown Band‘s new single ‘The Wind,’ then divorce lawyers would be as common as fry cooks at McDonald’s. The first single from the band’s upcoming ‘Uncaged’ album is as close as the country jamband has ever come to recreating their concerts on the radio.
If Trace Adkins was shy about sharing the more intimate details of his wardrobe, he’d probably be upset with his wife Rhonda today. However, the country giant has proven in the past that he’s willing to let fans see what’s behind the metaphorical curtain (and the actual one). On Monday afternoon, what started as an innocent tweet ended up with a picture of the big man’s underwear.
Scotty McCreery has changed his name! The ‘Water Tower Town’ singer made the big announcement on late night television last night. Find out his new name, and also what led to this rash decision, in today’s Daily Roundup. Also learn about Kenny Chesney‘s new record deal, Sheryl Crow‘s brain tumor and the next four entries in the Top 100 Country Songs list.
The 2012 CMT Music Awards are a collection of both superstars and hot, new country talent. This week, stars like Carrie Underwood and Eric Church have been rehearsing their performances, while newcomers like Kip Moore, Jana Kramer and the FARM look to take the stage for the very first time. Scroll through these photos of artists preparing for Wednesday’s (June 6) CMT broadcast.
The tour of the summer began over the weekend. Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Jake Owen opened the Brothers of the Sun Tour in Tampa, Fla., and few walked away not believing they’d seen one of the greatest shows in country music. Read a full recap, lus catch up on the latest entries in the Top 100 Country Songs countdown in the Daily Roundup below.
Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina were just added to a major country music awards show, but Chely Wright wasn’t and she’s upset about it. OK, she didn’t mention this show specifically when talking about being shut out of industry events, but others like it. Read both of these stories, and find out about Garth Brooks new tour dates in the Roundup below.
