Dierks Bentley (and all of the extras) get down and dirty in his video for ’5-1-5-0,’ the latest single from ‘Home.’ It features four wheelers, all-terrain vehicles and monster trucks being driven in a mud ditch, being chased by the very po po that Bentley sings about in the song’s chorus! Even with the cops on their tail, the riders are enjoying themselves.
Yesterday morning (June 1), the Band Perry performed on the ‘TODAY’ show, kicking off the weekend in fine, country fashion. They treated the crowd to their multi-format smash ‘If I Die Young’ and latest single ‘Postcard From Paris,’ along with ‘All Your Life.’ They looked like they enjoyed serenading Manhattanites on a gorgeous morning, no doubt made sunnier by Kimberly Perry and her bright disposition.
Miranda Lambert is one bada– broad (we mean that lovingly) that you do not want to cross. Why? Because much like the protagonist of her smash ‘Gunpowder and Lead,’ she carries a weapon. It may not be a shotgun, as the lyrics proclaim, but make no mistake — Lambert is armed. The reason she guns up? She was the recipient of a death threat and needs to protect herself, which she does by taking matters into her own hands.
Kellie Pickler loves our troops! The country cutie headed to the Middle East for her fifth international USO tour, a fact she let us know via a recent tweet. Five tours? That’s dedication to our boys (and girls) in the service. Pickler is naturally perky, but the ‘Where’s Tammy Wynette’ singer expressed excitement about being able to visit the military bases overseas and perform. But that’s not the extent of her support. Heck, it’s not even the half of it.
Scotty McCreery won Season 10 of ‘American Idol’ and became a legit country superstar in the ensuing year, so of course he has plenty of advice to offer to and to instill in the winner of Season 11, Phillip Phillips. McCreery offered his heir apparent a few choice words of advice: “Go out there looking to learn.”
Carrie Underwood is dominating the landscape right now, especially in the mainstream media. The ‘Blown Away’ singer, whose new album of the same name topped the Billboard chart for two weeks in a row, will be featured in the forthcoming 20th anniversary ‘Dateline’ special, which airs tonight (May 22) at 10PM ET on NBC. Make a note of it!
Toss back those red solo cups, as Toby Keith has signed on to host the 2012 CMT Music Awards, which will air Wednesday, June 6 at 8PM ET on CMT and at CMT.com. The country superstar will be joined by actress Kristen Bell, who will co-host alongside him. We’re beyond excited to see how well Keith and Bell play off one another.
Congratulations are in order for Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum and Blake Shelton. All three country acts have been nominated for 2012 Teen Choice Awards outside of their genre. Swift was nominated in the Choice Female Artist category, where she is up against pop divas like Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Rihanna. Lady A received a nod in the Choice Music Group category, where they will do battle with the likes of LMFAO and the Wanted, among others.
‘Duets,’ the new reality singing competition series starring Sugarland vocalist Jennifer Nettles and semi-country singer Kelly Clarkson, debuts this coming Thursday (May 24) in a two-hour premiere. The premise of the show is that established vocalists will partner with neophytes for –you guessed it- a duet! Rather than be judges or mentors, the celebs are performing alongside the hopefuls. Ahead of the big bow at 8 PM ET, the singing partners of each mentor have been revealed by ABC.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, country’s first couple who celebrated their first wedding anniversary last Monday (May 14), are big animal lovers. They incorporated their pets into their wedding ceremony and according to Shelton in a recent chat and photo spread in In Touch, they’ve rescued “at least 20 dogs, as well as cats and horses.” The irony that the duo lives in a converted hunting lodge in Oklahoma, and the fact that they are avid hunters, is not lost on them, either. However, their dedication to domesticated critters does offer insight into how they will fare with kids.
