Clay Walker will be hosting his third annual Chords of Hope benefit concert for multiple sclerosis on June 5 at Nashville’s 3rd and Lindsley. Walker was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in 1996 and has gone to great lengths since then to raise money to benefit others living with the autoimmune disease. The charity he formed, called Band Against MS (BAMS) strives to raise awareness and education about MS while also raising money to fund research that’s working toward a cure.
Yep, it’s true that Brad Paisley has been taking some humorous shots at Paul McCartney‘s most recent album title. At the same time, it’s also true that Sir McCartney selected a moniker he most certainly assumed might take some flack from the music community. One can hardly land on a title like ‘Kisses on the Bottom’ without first thinking through the potential ramifications (and public commentaries).
NBC’s new musical drama ‘Smash’ premiered on Monday night, taking in the story of what it takes to make it in a Broadway musical.

At Saturday night’s Jason Aldean My Kinda Party Tour show in Champaign, Ill., one fan was trying to have his own kinda party — but he wasn’t able to stay in the audience long enough to see it to a good close. With Aldean at the back of the University of Illinois assembly hall to join Luke Bryan on an acoustic set, the drunken fan began losing his cool, which is visualized in the video below. Country radio station B104 was in attendance at the show and came back with the juicy details.
Country sweetheart Miranda Lambert has been in the news a good bit lately, and most of the headlines have revolved around the personal tragedies she’s encountered in the past couple of weeks. The ‘Baggage Claim’ singer had to deal with the death of her father-in-law, her childhood friend and even her beloved dog, Dixie. Though Lambert has been dealing with these losses, she kept most of her On Fire Tour in tact, but the emotion of everything overcame her at a Huntsville, Ala. show Thursday night. There, Lamber broke down crying in the middle of her nostalgic hit ‘The House That Built Me.’
Last Saturday night (Jan. 28), Vanessa Pritt from Charleston, W.V. was enjoying a Brad Paisley concert in Las Vegas with her boyfriend, Jason Davis, when Paisley reportedly handed Davis the mic in the middle of a song.

As season two of ‘The Voice‘ gets ready to hit airwaves, one of the show’s celeb judges, Blake Shelton, is taking his season one pick on the road with him for his Well Lit and Amplified Tour. He invited season one finalist Dia Frampton to join the caravan as a supporting act alongside Justin Moore.
The new issue of Rolling Stone has just been revealed, and fronting the rock and pop culture mag is none other than Blake Shelton, joined by his fellow celebrity judges from NBC’s smash entertainment show ‘The Voice.’ In jeans and a black button-up, Shelton is a mixture of dapper and Nashville outlaw, with his outdoorsman, barbed wire and deer track tattoo exposed just below his rolled cuff.
Lady Antebellum dove into the second leg of their Own the Night Tour last night (Jan. 27) in Tulsa, Okla., but before they hit the stage, they took almost 30 minutes to hit the web for a Q&A session with fans. According to Country Weekly, one tidbit gleaned from the chat pertains to the color of Hillary Scott’s coiffure. And, no, in case you were wondering, the brunette says you won’t see her sporting her former blond locks again.
With Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott having tied the knot this month and Dave Haywood having proposed to his girlfriend in December, all three members of the trio are enjoying all the changes that come from leaving the single life behind. And, hey, now that marriage is figured out, why not start thinking about the next phase: a tour bus that can accommodate babies.
