Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood — the talented musicians of Lady Antebellum — joined Jimmy Fallon on his late-night show on Wednesday night (May 2), bringing with them their chipper attitudes, despite it being after hours. The trio chatted about their world tour, their rising success, what their shows used to be like and what’s coming up for them before picking up their instruments and putting on a live performance.
After many long years at the top, it looks like Fox’s ‘American Idol’ is starting to lose steam as America’s top reality singing show. The culprit? Stiff competition created by Blake Shelton and team on ‘The Voice‘ has ultimately caused ‘Idol’ ratings to drop.
On Tuesday night (May 1), Lee Brice visited Jay Leno at ‘The Tonight Show’ to play ‘A Woman Like You,’ the hit single from his chart-topping sophomore album, ‘Hard 2 Love.’ This week, the rising country star has received a lot of attention, as ‘Hard 2 Love’ became the No. 1 selling digital country album and reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Top New Country Albums chart.
There’s only one Brantley Gilbert, but that hasn’t stopped an Indiana man from trying to pose as the ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ singer. After sending emails and text messages acting as if he were the country star, 25-year-old Thomas Michael Barth has been charged with two counts of felony theft, according to a statement made by the Warsaw Police Department.
Kellie Pickler is well-known for her tender-hearted love for animals. In 2008, she and close pal Carrie Underwood gave up eating meat, and in 2009, PETA even named Pickler the world’s sexiest vegetarian. But who would have thought that the ‘American Idol’ star’s great love for animals extends to the biggest of the bunch? In Pickler’s episode of ‘Day Jobs,’ which airs tonight (May 2), the ’100 Proof’ hitmaker gets to work as an elephant caretaker for a day!
It looks like Jennifer Nettles isn’t the only Sugarland member who wants to spend time coaching young talent. While Nettles is preparing to team up with country hopeful on the ABC reality series ‘Duets’ this summer, her band member Kristian Bush recently started shaping the career of Alana Springsteen, a talented 11-year-old girl who is an aspiring singer.
In the past few months, reality TV news has been buzzing with word of the new celebrity judges joining hands for ABC’s new singing competition, ‘Duets.’ After announcing that Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles, Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke and Lionel Richie would be working as judges on the show, Richie has pulled out of the deal.
Between her successful solo career and her role in the all-girl trio Pistol Annies, Miranda Lambert has a lot going on.

Even those who haven’t been watching ‘The Voice‘ this season will want to tune into the Season 2 finale. A star-studded line-up — including Lady Antebellum, Justin Bieber, Daryl Hall and John Oates, and Flo Rida — is on the slate for the May 8 final episode.
Martina McBride is no stranger to a sell-out performance. In her 20-plus year career, she has sold out plenty of huge venues and put on elaborate productions for her fans. But now, it sounds like she’s done with all of that. Not done with touring, of course. It’s just that this time around, the country songstress is begging to play smaller, more intimate shows.
Thanks to recent news about his 2010 album release going gold, Brantley Gilbert is probably on cloud nine this week. ‘Halfway to Heaven’ contains the country star’s No. 1 hit ‘Country Must Be Country Wide,’ as well as his current Top 15 single, ‘You Don’t Know Her Like I Do’ — a song which likely helped the release sell 500,000 copies.
At PS22 in Staten Island, N.Y., a chorus of talented fifth graders has garnered some national attention by performing hit songs with famous musicians like Gym Class Heroes, Ingrid Michaelson, Adele… and now, country’s own gem Carrie Underwood. Led by their instructor, talented piano player Gregg Breinberg, a few dozen chorus members gathered in the school auditorium recently to sing ‘Good Girl’ with Underwood, whose typically larger-than-life voice was almost overpowered by the kids’ skills.
