The two competing sides of Brantley Gilbert's personality make him one of the more fascinating artists walking around Nashville. He's a rebel who writes his own rule book on and off stage. He's also a sensitive songwriter, willing to reveal his broken heart or darkest memories to a room full of beer-swilling fans.
He’s been writing and performing songs for fifteen years, and even though Will Hoge is a name you might not yet know — you are definitely familiar with his work. Hoge penned Eli Young Band’s No.1 smash “Even if it Breaks Your Heart,” a song that earned him a Grammy nomination. He's also the guy singin' on the Chevy truck commercials.
Country curmudgeons looking to blame hip-hop for what they see as the fall of country music have it wrong. Sure, acts like Brantley Gilbert and Jason Aldean are quick to drop rappers alongside country legends when listing influences, but it’s the aggressive, unapologetically loud guitar riffs of the ‘80s that are truly shaping the format today.
Letterman, or someone on his staff, has an apparent fondness for alternative-country, and this is good. Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jason Isbell, Dale Watson and Randy Rogers Band have all recently taken their talents to Late Night.
When Kelly Clarkson married Brandon Blackstock, she not only gained a husband, she also added a very special mother-in-law in Reba McEntire. But the ginger-haired songstress isn't just an in-law -- she's also a mentor to Clarkson.
Clay Walker is at an interesting point in his life and career. He's a survivor. He's lived twice as long as doctors predicted he would when he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1996, and he's lasted much longer than your average Nashville hat.
Lady Antebellum singer Hillary Scott isn't the only one in her family or band getting ready for the trio's upcoming Downtown Tour. Scott's daughter Eisele Kaye, born in July, is also preparing for her first big road trek.
