A man was hospitalized after being attacked by three fellow concertgoers at a Jason Aldean show at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre just outside of Chicago on Saturday (August 18). Unfortunately, this wasn’t just a minor scuffle between fans who had too much to drink. Reportedly, it was an unprovoked three-on-one attack that left the victim badly injured.
Donned in hip new Fashion’s Night Out T-shirts, country songstress Taylor Swift and pop sensation Justin Bieber have teamed up to advertise the popular 2012 event. Every year, fashion editors, models, designers, celebs and fashionistas get together for a late night of shopping and mingling. This year, Swift and Bieber are acting as spokespeople, spreading the word about the action before FNO goes live on Sept. 6.
Taylor Swift‘s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ hit airwaves this week and immediately climbed to the top of the iTunes chart. After just days, it’s everywhere, which has the country singer’s ex-boyfriends scrambling to figure out if the song was written about them. Although some of Swift’s fans immediately thought Joe Jonas was the subject of the powerful ‘I’m over you’ anthem, the pop star believes otherwise.
Whenever possible, Luke Bryan loves to use his music to give back to people who need his support. That’s why the ‘Drunk on You’ hitmaker devised the Farm Tour — an annual set of outdoor concerts that give back to local farming communities. This year will be the fourth-annual event, and Bryan has finally announced the dates and cities to his eager fans.
Kelly Clarkson continues to amaze country music fans with her twangy covers of popular country songs. Every time she plays a show, Clarkson chooses one fan from her audience to choose a cover song. As it turn out, the pop crossover’s fans are pretty into country music. For her latest country offering, Clarkson put on a smashing rendition of Lee Ann Womack‘s ‘I Hope You Dance.’
Like any good southern gal, North Carolina native Kellie Pickler knows how to cook. In fact, the ‘Tough’ songstress was recently invited to demonstrate a few recipes on ABC’s cooking show, ‘The Chew.’ From the moment she walked on stage carrying a basket of pickles in mason jars (get it? Kellie Pickler makes pickles?), she was a complete hit on the daytime television show.
Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are obviously doing something right. In addition to having their respective award-winning country music careers, the two bombshell country stars have now been invited to host the CMA awards a whopping five times. Luckily, the dynamic duo isn’t getting tired of hosting the awards show — in fact, they both admit to being really excited to host the 2012 CMA Awards.
Ready for a weird story? George Boedecker — the 51-year-old co-founder of Crocs, the foamy sandal/outdoor shoe hybrid that people love to hate — was recently picked up in Colorado on suspicion of driving drunk. But rather than own up to his mistakes and accept responsibility, he blamed his ‘girlfriend’…. 22-year-old Taylor Swift.
Jason Aldean should start counting down the days to October 16, when the singer’s next album, ‘Night Train,’ will be ready for the purchasing. Unfortunately, that’s still a few months away. But the good news is, fans of the ‘Fly Over States’ hitmaker can get a sneak peek of his new tunes when he takes them to the internet through David Letterman’s ‘Live on Letterman’ webcast.
When Scotty McCreery took the stage to open for Brad Paisley in Bethel, N.Y. over the weekend, he must not have paid close enough attention to the width of the walkway into the crowd. Either that, or maybe he was rocking out so hard during the final tune of his set that he lost his balance, because he accidentally tumbled off the stage mid-song.
