Very few who’ve seen the controversial cover of this week’s issue of Time Magazine walk away without an opinion, and country star Sara Evans is no different. She is one of two female vocalists outraged by the photo, which shows a three-year-old boy standing on a chair and breastfeeding from his mother.
Just two weeks before Jake Owen proposed to now-wife Lacey Buchanan, he said marriage was not on his radar. Owen co-hosted the syndicated radio show Country Countdown USA at the end of March and told host Lon Helton that while Buchanan would be the one he would marry if he was going to be married, she shouldn’t expect a ring anytime soon.
Happy first anniversary to Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert! The country couple celebrate one year of matrimonial bliss today (May 14). Professionally, they have soared with multiple awards and perhaps the best albums of their careers in the past year. But their strong bond has been tested with periods of personal sadness and controversy, too.
There are dozens (if not hundreds) of country songs about moms, and many country singers are even mothers themselves. For this reason, the Mother’s Day holiday is sure to be one that is surely not going to be overlooked on any humble artist’s calendar. Take a look at the women who helped shape the ladies and gents of country music — the ones that give us so much wonderful music year after year — in this list of Country Stars and Their Moms.
Don’t look now, but Mother’s Day 2012 is on Sunday. Sure, there are the typical gifts — flowers, a nice dinner, a sweet card — but aren’t those a little boring and overdone? This year, try personalizing a gift to hit Mom’s country music tastes. This list of gift ideas for Mother’s Day includes 10 things she’ll absolutely love to own, which means you’ll be on her good side for at least another month or two.
Before Carson Daly began ticking off the results of the second season of ‘The Voice,’ he told Jermaine Paul that “You are not a background singer anymore.” Of course the longtime Alicia Keys vocalist had proven himself as a featured act before being announced the winner on Tuesday night but, his win vindicated a career’s worth of hard work and sacrifice.
Lady Antebellum took the Hollywood stage on ‘The Voice’ Tuesday night, and left to a standing ovation from the live studio audience after singing their new single ‘Wanted You More.’ The power-ballad featured Hillary Scott and Charles Kelley dramatically pleading with each other in a way their loyal fans have become familiar with.
The power behind the punch of Lady Antebellum‘s sophomore album has withered away to little more than a slap to the cheek with the group’s fourth single ‘Wanted You More.’ The best songs from ‘Own the Night’ have already been issued as singles, and while hope remains for a late surge (‘Cold as Stone’ or ‘Friday Night’ perhaps), this new offering is more style than substance.
Jake Owen married his fiancee, Lacey Buchanan, on Monday morning (May 7) in a sunrise ceremony in his hometown of Vero Beach, Fla. He announced the nuptials via Twitter, writing “A best friend for life. I now have a wifey … my face hurts from smiling. What a wonderful way to start the rest of my life.”
Just when judges were beginning to believe 18-year-old country cutie Skylar Laine could win ‘American Idol,’ viewers sent her home. The Brandon, Miss. native was eliminated on Thursday night, receiving the fewest votes of the remaining five contestants.
The video for Justin Moore‘s new song ”Til My Last Day’ is every bit as much the family affair as the song’s longing lyrics. During the heartstring-tugger, Moore sings about his dedication to his family, and his wife Kate and daughters Ella Cole and Kennedy Faye are prominently featured throughout the clip.
As expected, the cover of Carrie Underwood‘s ‘Blown Away’ album foreshadows the mood of the project’s 14 songs (eight co-written by Underwood). It stops short of tempestuous, but she spends more time looking back at the darkness than she does forward to sunny days.
