Carrie Underwood is on a crusade. The ‘Good Girl’ singer, who made some waves in the press with her comments on marriage equality, which were both supported and chastised, plans to change the way country music is perceived in the U.K. She is also trying to help make the genre popular in the region. If anyone is up for the challenge of bringing country music into the spotlight across the pond, it’s Carried Underwood.
Tim McGraw is generous with photos of his handsome self on Twitter. A week after sharing a shirtless pic, showing off his buff chest and muscular arms, which generated quite a bit of chatter in the process, the singer tweeted a photo from the studio.
Scotty McCreery‘s ‘Water Tower Town’ video is his visual celebration of the sights, scenes and sounds of his hometown of Garner, North Carolina. It’s a candid and true look at small town America, and we see the singer signing autographs, meeting fans and just having a good time with his fellow Garnerians. Despite his fame and fortune — which came with winning Season 10 of ‘American Idol’ — Scotty is still the same kid he was before he took the crown.
Want to be a country boy like Earl Dibbles, Jr. in his new ‘The Country Boy Song’ video? That means you’ll wake up next to your shotgun, with which you spooned all night, grab your dip, tuck it in your jaw, throw on your overalls, swim in the creek with your dog, fish, and hang out and do fun stuff all day. With all these extracurricular activities, who wouldn’t want to be a country boy, down to the dip in your lip while cracking cold ones?
Ladies, did your knees buckle yet? Tim McGraw tweeted a photo of himself, shirtless and showing off his sculpted chest, ripped abs and rock hard arms. At 45, McGraw puts men half his age to shame with that physique.
Scotty McCreery is an exercise in contrasts. On one hand, he is a country music megastar, having racked up platinum sales, toured the world and performed on both breakfast and late night TV programs with increasing frequency. On the other, he just graduated high school and is preparing for college. McCreery will begin his freshman year at North Carolina State University in the fall. But he’s not wasting any time and is diving right in. He’s already started decorating his new house, which is located just a few miles from the school’s main campus.
Bon Jovi are no strangers to country music, having scored a No. 1 hit in the genre with their Jennifer Nettles-assisted version of ‘Who Says You Can’t Go Home’ back in 2006. So it’s not a huge surprise to see that guitarist Richie Sambora is working with country duo Big and Rich. So we guess that means we can call them “Big and Richie,” if only for a song?
You can’t keep a ‘Good Girl’ down. Congrats to country queen Carrie Underwood on yet another platinum certification, this time for ‘Good Girl,’ the first single from ‘Blown Away.’ According to a press release from Underwood’s reps, the song has been certified platinum by the RIAA, meaning it has sold more than 1 million digital downloads.
Boys will boys, especially while they are on tour together. Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw are currently on the road for their Brothers of the Sun tour and while these two country superstars are indeed like brothers, that doesn’t prevent them from messing with each other a little while on the road. Sounds like sibling behavior.
Congrats to our favorite country music roughneck Trace Adkins. The singer’s family recently expanded, as he welcomed his new grandson Jackson Trace Webber, who was born on June 6. What a great Father’s Day present for Adkins – he gets to enjoy a brand new grandson, who is his (middle) namesake.
The third annual Lifting Lives Music Camp is slated for June 18 through June 22 in Nashville, with country superstars like Luke Bryan, Lauren Alaina, Big & Rich, Brett Eldredge and Jana Kramer set to take part in the festivities at the event. It’s for a good cause, so it’s refreshing to see these country artists carving time out of their beyond busy schedules for something so beneficial to others.
