As a touring country artist, Jake Owen has long known that he has a steady base of fans interested in his music. But the ‘Alone With You’ singer didn’t fully comprehend just how interested those fans would be in every detail of his private life, including his proposal, engagement and the engagement ring he gave to fiancee Lacey Buchanan.
Carrie Underwood‘s fourth studio album ‘Blown Away’ isn’t set to hit store shelves until May 1, but this week fans can enjoy an early listen of the record — in full — before it makes its official debut. The stream is available via iTunes, and there Carrie fanatics can also pre-order the record.
Tyson Zimmer, a 7-year-old boy in Nebraska who is dying of brain cancer, is a huge Jason Aldean fan. The little boy with the sweet smile told Nebraska’s KOLN-TV, “I sing ‘Big Green Tractor’ because that’s my favorite.” As family and friends have watched Zimmer battle the horrible disease, they rallied around him, joining in a Twitter campaign to request that Aldean send the young boy a message.
Young country star Scotty McCreery has been pitching for his hometown Garner High School Trojans this season after taking a break during the post-’Idol’ whirlwind. The kid with the incredible voice and equally intimidating arm pitched his first game of the season on March 10 and started as pitcher for his second varsity game last Thursday. However, the ‘Trouble With Girls’ singer faced a scary moment when a ball came back and hit him just where a singer never wants to be hit — the throat.
Zac Brown Band have been crazy busy this year, as they’ve taken the stages of arenas across the country and awards shows alike. Currently up for Top Country Artist at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, ZBB are also in the running for Group Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year at the CMT Music Awards.

CMT unrolled the red carpet for their 2012 Music Awards nominations this morning, and it looks like Carrie Underwood is set to have quite the year, with a stunning total of five nominations. While Underwood is in the lead, tons of other country stars netted multiple nominations this year. Miranda Lambert is packing four — two for her solo work and two with first-time nominees Pistol Annies.
Alan Jackson has been the owner of some impressive real estate in his day. From his $28 million Williamson County estate — which he and his wife sold earlier this year to move to a gated community — to his $15 million, $19,000 Juniper Island, Florida estate — which is still on the market — Jackson and his wife seem to be simplifying as their daughters get older. And now, adding to the list of properties they have decided to sell this year, the Jacksons are putting their equally mind-boggling lakeside retreat on the market for $4,995,000.
This week, Reba McEntire technically became the second female country artist to ever sell more than 30 million albums. The first woman to do this was Shania Twain, who is currently considered the top-selling female country artist of all time with 34,175,000 albums sold, according to Perez Hilton.
We previously reported that former country child protege Billy Gilman had united 18 of the biggest names in country music to sing on his song ‘The Choice.’ With the song, Gilman is teaming up with the organization Soles4Souls to bring shoes to kids across the globe who don’t have any. The artists are donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the song’s digital downloads directly to the cause. This week, Gillman released a music video to further the reach of the charitable single.
Blake Shelton may not be a fan of all the background dancers and glitzy staging he sees on ‘The Voice‘ — and he’s taken a little flack for his critiques from fellow judges who insinuate that he just doesn’t appreciate the art of staging. But that doesn’t mean the country king can’t appreciate things outside his own genre. If there’s one pop craze to which Shelton unabashedly subscribes, it’s Justin Bieber.
