Jo Dee Messina is back on TV this weekend, as the singer (and mother of a newborn son) returns to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ which is one of the most popular installments of the Bravo franchise. On Sunday, March 18, Messina will once again partner with R&B singer/songwriter and show star Kandi Burruss.
Kenny Chesney fans will want to tune into the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 1. The superstar is planning a major reveal at the show, choosing to perform the first single from his brand new album, according to a representative from his label BNA. It’s certainly interesting that the title of the single has not yet been determined but the live premiere has! Even so, Chesney fans will take it.
Lauren Alaina came thisclose to winning ‘American Idol‘ last season, but she didn’t need to the official title to launch a legitimate, more-than-respectable country career. She’s doing just fine as the runner-up, but she still returned to the show’s stage tonight (March 8, 2012) for a guest spot, performing her rowdy, rocking single ‘Georgia Peaches.’ My, how far she’s come in a year.
Miranda Lambert‘s go-to jewelry designer is obviously Karen Lindner. She created the gorgeous, choker-style necklace that Lambert wears in her new video for ‘Over You,’ as well as the jewelry that the singer and her bridal party wore at the reception for her May 2011 wedding to Blake Shelton.
Even country artists like James Otto were affected by the death of guitarist Ronnie Montrose. The classic rock legend, who played with singer Sammy Hagar in the band Montrose, died on Saturday (March 3) at the age of 64. The news shook the classic rock community, but clearly, Montrose’s outreach was much bigger. Otto, a singer/guitarist himself — who saw his second album ‘Sunset Man’ produced by a pair of country heavyweights in the form of John Rich and his own brother-in-law, Rascal Flatts‘ Jay DeMarcus — posted a tweet about this great loss to the music community. In doing so, he shared a short but sweet memory of how the late, great Montrose factored into his life.
Carrie Underwood warned her Twitter followers that she was planning a sneak attack late last night (March 2), but she didn’t share the details right away. It left us wondering what exactly the ‘Good Girl’ singer had on her mind.
Martina McBride and her husband John have been married for nearly 24 years. That’s an eternity in this day and age, as recent stats indicate that nearly one out of every two marriages routinely ends in divorce. McBride shared the secret to her successful, two-decade marriage, revealing that it’s the small things that count.
Little girls grow up so fast, but that won’t stop the members of Rascal Flatts from trying to enjoy the sugar, spice and everything nice that their daughters are made of for as long as they can. All three members in the band have daughters, and Gary LeVox, who has 12-year-old and 7-year-old daughters, recently lamented about his little ladies growing up right before his eyes.
Whitney Houston’s funeral takes place today (Feb. 18) and the news of the pop diva’s death has rippled through the entire music community for the past week. Even Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott is feeling the effects of the tragic loss. Scott admitted that she especially felt Houston’s death hanging in the air at last week’s 2012 Grammy Awards ceremony. The female voice of Lady A, who picked up the Country Album of the Year statue for ‘Own the Night,’ said the feeling of sadness was palpable through and through.
Taylor Swift‘s Speak Now tour was a global, 98-city trek that we are still talking about even though it’s long over. That’s because it was one of the hottest tours of 2011, as the singer traveled the world, strumming her guitar, singing her confessional songs, covering regional artists from the city in which she was playing and inviting big name locals to perform on stage with her. All three of those elements contributed to the tour’s success.
Dolly Parton and the late Whitney Houston are forever connected through one very specific hit ballad. Houston’s version of ‘I Will Always Love You’ — which Parton wrote and first released in 1974 — was a massive hit for Houston in 1992 as part of ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack.
