Professionally, Kelly Clarkson flirts with country music, having released a twangy version of ‘Mr. Know It All‘ and dueting with Jason Aldean. Personally, she’s always celebrated the single life. Until now. Though Clarkson may not have gone full-fledged country with her music, she has with her boyfriend. The pop hitmaker is reportedly dating Brandon Blackstock — manager of Blake Shelton and stepson of Reba McEntire.
Ever since we first met Skylar Laine, her ‘American Idol‘ performances have exploded like rock-infused country music firecrackers. She stomps around the stage, with a spring in her step and a twang in her voice like a mini Reba. While we love when she does her thang, it was time for us to see and hear something different and new from her.
Carrie Underwood warned her Twitter followers that she was planning a sneak attack late last night (March 2), but she didn’t share the details right away. It left us wondering what exactly the ‘Good Girl’ singer had on her mind.
Reba McEntire was the subject of Friday night’s (March 2) NBC documentary series ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ As the star of the show, McEntire was given the opportunity to trace her ancestral roots back several centuries in America and England and chart her familial course. The fire-haired singer did discover things that pained her greatly, such as the fact that one of her great grandfathers was a slave owner while another was an indentured servant himself.
Miranda Lambert has a more active role on this season of ‘The Voice.’ While she supported her husband, coach Blake Shelton, last season and performed with his finalist Dia Frampton on air, this season, she’s more deeply involved as an advisor to Shelton’s team.
Poor Taylor Swift. She really got ‘Punk’d’ by Justin Bieber in the brand new season of the hidden camera series that MTV is exhuming as of March 29. A teaser clip of the Biebs punking his pal Swift has surfaced online, and while it’s hilarious to the viewer and those in on the prank, it’s not as quite funny to Swift, as a look of genuine terror crosses her face. She appears completely concerned about the events that unfold in the forthcoming episode.
Former Monkees singer Davy Jones died of a heart attack today (Feb. 29) at the age of 66. Though Jones was a pop icon, memorizing kids of the ’60s with his television series band, even country stars were affected by the loss and shared fond memories of the singer and the show via Twitter. It just goes to show that music is a universal language, regardless of genre.
With Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift taking roles on the small screen and in films, respectively, it’s no surprise that another country singer might get in on the fun. Jason Aldean has had his interest in acting aroused. But he will look before he leaps and he will not shoot first and think later. In fact, he would be open to easing into acting to make sure he likes it. It has to be the right fit and Aldean will only take a role judiciously, not impulsively. He’s well within his rights to do just that.
Keith Urban hits the desert sand in his video for ‘For You.’ The song appears in the upcoming action flick ‘Act of Valor,’ which tells the story of Navy SEALS. This clip features Urban and his band performing in the baking hot heat of the sun, spliced with images from the film.
Trace Adkins has been named the spokesman for Pilot Flying J’s soon-to-be-launched loyalty program, which is set to kick off this spring. Pilot Flying J, in case you didn’t know, is the largest operator of travel centers and plazas in North America. Pro drivers, motorists and road warriors like Adkins rely on travel centers to survive while on the road.
Dierks Bentley‘s got a generous heart and a pointed interest in supporting our troops and their families, especially those in need. The country singer gifted a military family who needed a little help with a $50,000 donation on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Wednesday, and he was met with a hug from a uniformed officer and his wife, who shed tears of joy over Bentley’s financial contribution on their behalf.
Taylor Swift‘s Speak Now tour was a global, 98-city trek that we are still talking about even though it’s long over. That’s because it was one of the hottest tours of 2011, as the singer traveled the world, strumming her guitar, singing her confessional songs, covering regional artists from the city in which she was playing and inviting big name locals to perform on stage with her. All three of those elements contributed to the tour’s success.
