We’ve seen her in her own television shows, on Broadway, in film and especially on stage, and we’re about to witness Reba McEntire in the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame as well. The country queen, who is already an esteemed member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry, will be inducted into the West Coast hall of fame this year to round out her list of illustrious awards and accolades.
Lionel Richie seems to have stepped into a new role as the king of collaborators during the past year. The ‘Endless Love’ singer, who started with the Commodores and then rose on the wings of his own solo career, is now collaborating with artists of all genres, from the most cult indie acts to mainstream country stars. Richie will be making a big appearance at South by Southwest 2012 as the headliner for Billboard’s annual showcase.
Country hitmaker Kenny Chesney and Costa Sunglasses just presented a hefty $50,000 check to the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA). The CCA is a non-profit organization that works toward marine conservation in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, conserving and restoring coastal marine resources. The philanthropy fit perfectly with the theme of Chesney’s 2011 Goin Coastal Tour.
Earlier this week, Eric Church and his band set out to film a video for Church’s ‘Springsteen,’ the third single from his Grammy-nominated record, ‘Chief.’ The country hitmaker officially released the single at the beginning of this year, and now he’s working on the music video to accompany it. But for the filming, he didn’t block off Broadway in Nashville or rent out the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. In fact, according to CMTT, Church was spotted shooting the video in a neighborhood setting in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Though Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have become quite the ‘it couple’ in and beyond the realm of country music, the two agree that they’re not planning for kids anytime soon. In a recent interview with US Weekly, Shelton explained that while they will be ringing in their first anniversary in May, they’re content to put off that next step for just a little while longer.
More than 20 years ago, in March of 1991, Reba McEntire experienced a tragedy that will stay with her for the rest of her life. On Sunday night (March 4), the country star opened up on the OWN show ‘Oprah’s Master Class’ about the tragic plane crash that took the lives of seven of her band members, as well as her tour manager and two pilots.
Suspicion is running high on Brad Paisley‘s tour with Scotty McCreery and the Band Perry. After McCreery pranked Paisley last Saturday night (Feb. 25) at their Springfield, Mo. show, the young singer started watching his back more than normal. And, with only today and tomorrow (March 3) left in their run together, McCreery must just be itching to see if Paisley’s going to retaliate.
If you’re having a particularly difficult time choosing your prom theme for this year — the Vegas theme is a little tired and you’re tired of standing by a cardboard miniature of the Eiffel Tower — Lady Antebellum are offering up a pretty compelling alternative. The country trio would like to suggest a different option, and they’re even willing to come help you pull it off. How about an ‘Own the Night’-themed prom?
Miranda Lambert confirmed that she’s working on a television series that’s loosely based on her childhood in Texas. In a recent interview with Dan Van from Albright & O’Malley, the country gal talked more about the the show, which is rumored to be about a boy and a girl — likely inspired by Lambert and her brother — who help their private investigator parents solve crimes.
Jason Aldean might sport a cowboy hat most of the time, but in the occasional behind-the-scenes video we’ll see him looking like the all-American guy in a baseball cap, a T-shirt and jeans. Recently, Aldean took it a big step further, stepping out of the world of pearl snaps, snakeskins and belt buckles to don a uniform of a different kind: an Atlanta Braves baseball uniform, complete with cleats and all.
