A big theme in country music news today was ‘hair.’ LeAnn Rimes changed her hair color, and Taste of Country readers worked to decide which country male has the best hair in our daily readers poll. Find both of these stories, plus news on Alan Jackson‘s new album in the Daily Roundup.
Much like Johnny Cash on ‘Hurt,’ Willie Nelson makes fans aware of his fragile mortality with an evocative cover of Pearl Jam‘s ‘Just Breathe.’ The famous country singer is joined by his son Lukas on this first listen of music from the upcoming ‘Heroes’ album. Together, they silence the room. Only a stone will keep from fighting tears after a few listens.
While the majority of country music’s top men hide beneath cowboy hats, more and more are tossing the lid aside. Chris Young made the decision last year, but other stars like Keith Urban and Jake Owen have regularly showcased their long, flowing locks to adoring fans.
“And the ACM Award for Guitar Lick of the Year goes to …” OK, so they don’t reward loud, nasty guitar riffs that upset the neighbors when you open the windows and crank the stereo to 10. But if they did, Montgomery Gentry‘s ‘So Called Life’ would earn the duo their first major award in over a decade.
Carrie Underwood loves her man, but doesn’t love when he travels with her. It turns out the two make lousy touring companions — click the link below to find out why. Also featured in today’s Daily Roundup is Tim McGraw‘s prank on Ellen DeGeneres and Lee Brice‘s opinion on the Ashton Kutcher ACM drama.
With the Texas tornadoes, the ACM Awards and the normal crazy things country artists see on any given day, there was plenty to tweet about this week — and the stars didn’t disappoint. Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton were prime examples of how dangerous tweeting can be, while the Band Perry and Chris Young gave examples of how embarrassing it can be to abuse your phone privileges.
An online critic with harsh words for ‘The Voice’ singer RaeLynn is feeling the wrath of the blonde cutie’s coach today. Blake Shelton read a personal assault on his 17-year-old singer’s performance from Monday night and fired back with a (not so safe for work) series of tweets.
What a baby face Jason Aldean had when he debuted with ‘Hicktown’ in 2005! Other than the clean-shaven cheeks and a few less necklaces, not much has changed in the Georgia born country singer’s look. His style is similar, and he still sports the same earrings seven years later. It’s a look that works for Aldean, so why change it? Holding onto a little more stubble is probably a good move. It gives his face a farm-worn look.
Carrie Underwood was first, Blake Shelton and Lionel Richie were last and very few dips were found in between. It was three straight hours of back-to-back performances that barely left time for a bathroom break on Sunday night. The 2012 ACM Awards felt more like an all-star jam than an awards ceremony, not that anyone is complaining.
Toby Keith announced his own ACM Award win during the red carpet broadcast on Sunday night. The singer was chatting with GAC-TV’s hosts when he was surprised with an envelope to open for Video of the Year. It would have been awkward had he been stopped to announce someone else’s win, but ‘Red Solo Cup’ took home the trophy.
It’d be hard to argue Jake Owen‘s sincerity on his new single ‘The One That Got Away.’ By the end of the song, Owen is almost shouting the chorus in anger as if the shadow of the “one that got away” is still looming over his crestfallen heart.
