Our hearts go out to Jake Owen, who lost his dear godmother, Pearl, on Tuesday (July 10). Owen may not talk about her much in interviews, but if you look closely, you can spot a tattoo of Pearl’s name on the country star’s left wrist.
Major League Baseball is getting countrified this year — and not just because Zac Brown Band will be singing ‘Chicken Fried’ at the State Farm Home Run Derby on July 9. At the main event on July 10, Luke Bryan will take the stage at the MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City to sing the National Anthem minutes before the umpire shouts, “Play ball!” During the seventh-inning stretch, fellow country star Kellie Pickler will perform ‘God Bless America’ from the field.
Although Keith Urban has fully enjoyed coaching talented singers on ‘The Voice’ in Australia, there’s no chance that the ‘You Gonna Fly’ hitmaker will trade in his guitar for a permanent reality TV contract anytime soon. While Urban would be thrilled to do another season of ‘The Voice,’ he told Australian radio’s Kyle & Jackie O Show that making music is still priority No. 1.
You wouldn’t be able to tell from watching his rocking stage performances, but as it turns out, having a wife and two daughters has made Keith Urban a bit of a softie. In a recent interview with the Belfast Telegraph, the ‘For You’ singer admitted that sometimes even the most random things make him cry.
After a few months of playing to jam-packed audiences on their We Own the Night Tour, Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley was ready to cut loose and enjoy the band’s last U.S. tour stop in Milwaukee on Saturday night (June 30). To close out his portion of the show, opener Darius Rucker launched into a performance of Prince’s ‘Puple Rain,’ but he was almost derailed when vocalist Charles Kelley walked on stage dressed as Prince.
It would seem that Taylor Swift is changing her signature scent in 2012. After the release of a first fragrance last year, the 22-year-old sensation has unveiled a follow-up spritzer, Wonderstruck Enchanted. The name suits the ‘Mine’ hitmaker’s free-spirited, vibrant persona — and so does her new perfume bottle. Made from red glass and adorned with tiny flower and bird charms, Wonderstruck Enchanted is the perfect essence of a new, more mature Taylor Swift.
This summer might just be Jake Owen‘s hottest yet. Not only is he palling around the country with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw on the Brothers of the Sun Tour, but with another No. 1 single on his hand, it looks like Owen is turning his attention to his most recent release, ‘The One That Got Away’ and a new video to match.
Whether you love NASCAR or not, everyone knows that Danica Patrick is the fastest female driver around. In fact, Patrick has risen to racing star status by being one of the more successful female drivers in history. Really, who would be a better pick to star in Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ music video? After several hints by the country star and the racing phenom on Twitter, now we know that Patrick snagged the lead role in Lambert’s forthcoming clip.
Hunter Hayes might be all about country, but that didn’t stop him from crossing genres and helping indie rockers the Flaming Lips try to break a Guinness World Record. This week, the Lips started out on a short tour to top the record for Most Shows Played in 24 hours (Multiple Cities) by playing eight shows with a slew of special guests. Hayes helped out at Benny’s Boom Boom Room in Hattiesburg, Miss. earlier today (June 28), where he laid down this live version of ‘Somebody’s Heartbreak,’ complete with rockin’ guitar solo, in conjunction with the 2012 O Music Awards.
