Carrie Underwood and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, are revered by teens across the country for their success in their respective careers. This week, the celebrity couple used that platform and took a minute to speak out for teen mental health. In support of the youth-driven organization D.I.F.D. (Do It For Daron), which works to raise awareness and get people talking about teen mental health, Underwood and Fisher appeared in a PSA reminding teens that they are highly valued and that they have hope.
It’s the stuff tabloids are made of — the details fans love to read and haters love to hate on. E! News recently reported that the paparazzi caught country star LeAnn Rimes laying a kiss on one of her best gal pals in the bright sunshine. But perhaps the most interesting element of the story is that Rimes’ husband, 38-year-old Eddie Cibrian, was right there snapping photos along with the celebrity photographers.
Steel Magnolia had a rough year last year — to say the least. With rumors of a potential split circulating, the duo’s fans were left wondering what was going to happen to the ‘Keep On Lovin’ You’ singers in 2012, both professionally and personally, since the two had set a tentative July 2012 wedding date. And while the duo aren’t giving any details of the status of their relationship, Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey assure fans that they’re back in the studio working on new music and preparing for their upcoming ACM Experience appearance.
You may know that Kenny Chesney makes an appearance with a host of country stars on Lionel Richie’s ‘Tuskegee‘ new country duets record, but do you know exactly how the ‘You and Tequila’ singer actually landed his spot on the album? While the two stars are good friends who each seem to really respect one another’s work, this collaboration actually began with a drunk dial.
As the president of Farm Aid, it’s no secret that Willie Nelson is a supporter of family farmers across the nation, and the country legend also recently spoke up in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement. But there’s another — perhaps less championed — cause that Nelson cares deeply about, and that’s making sure animals have a good home and are treated well. The ‘Always on My Mind’ singer recently rescued two neglected horses from an abusive environment.
Kids definitely know a good song when they hear one, and apparently they know a good philanthropist when they spot one, too. For her many charitable endeavors and contributions, Taylor Swift will be the recipient of this year’s the Big Help Award at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. Presenting the prestigious honor to the country starlet will be a widely acclaimed past winner, a philanthropist of a different vocation: First Lady Michelle Obama.
While you expect a great variety of performances at the ACM Awards, there’s one special occurrence you’d never anticipate seeing on the ACM stage: a wedding. Well, prepare to have your expectations blown away this year! Martina McBride and Train frontman Pat Monahan are due to perform McBride’s latest single ‘Marry Me‘ while a couple actually gets married on stage.
‘The Hunger Games’ premiere finally came and went, and according to Forbes, the film did even better at the box office than originally expected. And while this means major profits for Lions Gate Entertainment, it also means hefty dividends for the musicians behind the film’s soundtrack, including names like Taylor Swift, the Civil Wars, Miranda Lambert and the Secret Sisters. In the end, it looks as though Swift will take home the biggest paycheck, since she has two songs on the record.
It’s great to know that wherever a ton of celebrities convene in one place for an event, there’s sure to be a philanthropic angle somewhere in the mix. This year, Darius Rucker is hosting the sixth annual ACM Lifting Lives Celebrity Golf Classic, a golf tournament that will take place Saturday (March 31) at TPC Las Vegas. The event will benefit the Diana Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund, an organization which provides relief to people in need in the music industry.
If there’s one thing ‘American Idol‘ seems to love as much as discovering the newest talent, it’s inviting their alums back for a moment in the spotlight. It’s always so incredible to how performers who were once anxious hopefuls develop into such poised, self-assured stars in no time. Next week, the past ‘Idol’ winner who will be coming back to show off how he’s changed in a year is Scotty McCreery, and he’ll be joined by rap princess Nicki Minaj.
A couple weeks ago we joined in on the fun, reporting about ‘The Voice‘ coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine and their budding bromance. And while Shelton still playfully jokes that he’d like to make out with his Maroon 5-fronting co-judge, it seems Levine has just one request we need to take into consideration: He’s not too keen on the whole “bromance” word. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, the two, who are good friends in real life, talked about their friendship, and Levine requested a ban on a certain b-word.
Who doesn’t love a great cover? We thought we’d seen it all when Willie Nelson covered Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist,’ but then indie pop group fun. released their own acoustic version of Lady Antebellum‘s ‘We Owned the Night’ on SiriusXM (see below), and we admit we’re a little smitten.
