The Band Perry Eager to Take on the 2012 ACM Awards With Full Steam

Last year, sibling trio the Band Perry made their way to the ACM Awards in Las Vegas, where they took home the fan-voted New Artist of the Year Award. Even so, the band wasn’t officially nominated for an award, and the youngest Perry sibling, Neil, was still too young to even try his hand at a Vegas slot machine. This year, however, the band has an official nod for Vocal Group of the Year, and they say they’re excited to get out to Las Vegas and hang out with some of the best names in country music.

Taylor Swift Gets Special Gift From ‘The Hunger Games’ Author

Even before she wrote the lead single and another cut for ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack, Taylor Swift was already a huge fan of the books. The starlet said in a recent interview, “I fell in love with the book, fell in love with the themes running through it, fell in love with Katniss (the lead protagonist in the story).” So we’re guessing she was pretty ecstatic about receiving a copy of the book with a personal message scrawled in it from none other than author Suzanne Collins.

Blake Shelton Insists He and Miranda Lambert Will Always Fold Their Own Underwear

Yep, it’s true. If you were hoping this celebrity couple would hire you as their live-in laundress, your dreams have just been shattered. Blake Shelton, who is about as down-home country guy as they come, says he and wife Miranda Lambert will not be hiring someone anytime soon to do their dirty work — their dirty laundry, that is.
