Calling all rodeo fans! The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo — one of the biggest events of its kind in the country — has announced a killer line-up for 2013. In addition to the usual events, like calf scrambles, chuck wagons races, and of course the rodeo itself, Rodeo Houston is known for putting on some killer country music shows with the biggest names in the biz. Next year, one of the biggest of all, legendary country star George Strait, will make his first appearance at the festival since 2003.
When Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood and Hillary Scott — who make up the mega-talented country music trio Lady Antebellum — say that they love their fans, they really mean it. In fact, when Lady A superfan Jessica Stokes appeared on ‘Anderson’ on Tuesday, she couldn’t stop talking about how much she loves the group and how she’s never seen them in concert — that’s when the trio gave her the surprise of a lifetime.
Carrie Underwood has proven in the past few weeks that she really does draw in fans of all ages. First, she stopped by the PS22 school in Staten Island to sing her latest single ‘Good Girl’ with the fifth grade choir. And just this week, a video surfaced of an adorable three-year-old who showed her love for the singer by belting out Underwood’s new tune and dancing wildly, despite being slightly restrained by her car seat.
Everybody knows that Vince Gill is a multi-talented country music star. After all, you don’t become a member of the Grand Ole Opry and get inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame for nothing. Unfortunately, it’s not often that Gill’s fans get a taste of exactly how talented he is. But this year, the multi-instrumentalist will take to the road to play a 12-date bluegrass tour — proving to fans and critics that his bluegrass roots are still intact.
Taylor Swift has gotten her fair share of prom invitations this year. In February, 18-year-old New Jersey native Kevin McGuire asked the ‘Love Story’ songstress to his prom, and with a little help from his friends, caught her attention. This time, it’s 19-year-old Devon Whitney from Aurora, Colo. who is requesting Swift’s presence at the big senior dance.
Tonight (May 8 ) is the night that fans of ‘The Voice‘ have been waiting for — the Season 2 finale! But even if you haven’t followed every second of this season’s competition, country fans will want to tune in to catch the television debut of Lady Antebellum‘s newest single, ‘Wanted You More.’
Between ‘The Voice’ and ‘Duets,’ country music stars are becoming very well represented on the small screen. And soon, Jason Aldean will be added to the list of crooners doubling as reality TV stars. Aldean will take part in E!’s new show ‘Opening Act,’ which premieres on July 9.
Every year, racing fans, horse lovers, debutantes and country music stars flock to the Kentucky Derby for a day (or an entire weekend, for some) of horse racing, mint juleps and Old South-style fun. Of course, the derby is all about the horses and the galas — unless you’re one of the fashionable folks who would rather just take in the dresses, suits and hats. This year, Miranda Lambert looked to Kate Middleton for fashion inspiration, and the result was a world-class derby hat atop her head.
It sounds like country superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill might be taking a hiatus from their home in Nashville to spend a few months playing the strip in Sin City. Last week, the Las Vegas Sun reported that the country music power couple are close to signing a deal to play a series of weekend concerts from October 2012 through April 2013.
The past few days have been a whirlwind for Jake Owen. You might have heard the unfortunate buzz that the hitmaker was temporarily handcuffed in Florida over the weekend — but that’s old news. The latest talk surrounding the ‘Don’t Think I Can’t Love You’ singer is his early morning wedding to fiancee Lacey Buchanan.
If there were any doubts about how down-to-earth Carrie Underwood is, they’ve been put to rest after her interview in the May issue of Glamour magazine. Underwood looks dashing on the magazine’s cover, donning a peachy-orange dress and giving the camera a playful smile. But inside the spread, the gorgeous country star reveals that despite her major success, she’s still just like ‘real people.’
‘Glee,’ Fox’s hit musical television show about a high school glee club, is known for it’s larger-than-life covers of popular songs. Coming up this season, on May 15, Coach Bieste (Dot-Marie Jones) and Puck (Mark Salling) will collaborate on a duet of ‘Mean,’ the No. 1 song off of Taylor Swift’s ‘Speak Now’ album — with a glee club-style twist, of course.
