Major League Baseball is getting countrified this year — and not just because Zac Brown Band will be singing ‘Chicken Fried’ at the State Farm Home Run Derby on July 9. At the main event on July 10, Luke Bryan will take the stage at the MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City to sing the National Anthem minutes before the umpire shouts, “Play ball!” During the seventh-inning stretch, fellow country star Kellie Pickler will perform ‘God Bless America’ from the field.
There’s no day quite like the Fourth of July to make Americans reflect on the freedoms and gifts we too often take for granted as citizens of the U.S.A. And nobody salutes the red, white and blue quite as often or as seriously as country music stars. In light of this year’s Independence Day, longtime country music king Tim McGraw paused to reflect on what makes America a great place to live.
After a few months of playing to jam-packed audiences on their We Own the Night Tour, Lady Antebellum‘s Charles Kelley was ready to cut loose and enjoy the band’s last U.S. tour stop in Milwaukee on Saturday night (June 30). To close out his portion of the show, opener Darius Rucker launched into a performance of Prince’s ‘Puple Rain,’ but he was almost derailed when vocalist Charles Kelley walked on stage dressed as Prince.
It would seem to many that Miranda Lambert takes in a new stray dog every week. And perhaps she does. But it’s all because the ‘Over You’ hitmaker has a warm heart for her furry friends and wants to do anything she can to help them. This time, Lambert has adopted six stray puppies, and she turned to her fans to find homes for the sweet litter.
Country music fans in Darien Lake, N.Y. don’t have a very good track record for behaving appropriately at concerts — especially those who attend Rascal Flatts shows. On Saturday night (June 30), 59 fans were charged with underage possession of alcohol and intent to consume during the Flatts concert at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center.
It would seem that Taylor Swift is changing her signature scent in 2012. After the release of a first fragrance last year, the 22-year-old sensation has unveiled a follow-up spritzer, Wonderstruck Enchanted. The name suits the ‘Mine’ hitmaker’s free-spirited, vibrant persona — and so does her new perfume bottle. Made from red glass and adorned with tiny flower and bird charms, Wonderstruck Enchanted is the perfect essence of a new, more mature Taylor Swift.
This summer might just be Jake Owen‘s hottest yet. Not only is he palling around the country with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw on the Brothers of the Sun Tour, but with another No. 1 single on his hand, it looks like Owen is turning his attention to his most recent release, ‘The One That Got Away’ and a new video to match.
We’ve posted plenty of photos of country stars’ adorable pets, but Joe Don Rooney’s sweet brindle bulldog might win the prize for the cutest puppy ever. The Rascal Flatts guitarist tweeted a photo of the brown ball of wrinkles earlier this week, and even asked his followers to help the Rooney clan pick out a name.
Ever since Lady Antebellum released a behind-the-scenes clip of their ‘Wanted You More’ music video, we’ve been anxious to see the finished product. Although the initial clip showed us some fiery scenes of lead singer Hillary Scott walking away from a burning piano, it didn’t prepare us for the intensity of the full video.
Whether you love NASCAR or not, everyone knows that Danica Patrick is the fastest female driver around. In fact, Patrick has risen to racing star status by being one of the more successful female drivers in history. Really, who would be a better pick to star in Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ music video? After several hints by the country star and the racing phenom on Twitter, now we know that Patrick snagged the lead role in Lambert’s forthcoming clip.
This year, Trisha Yearwood has managed to add another job title to her resume: Cooking show host. The country music star showed off her kitchen skills on the Food Network this spring in a six-episode series called ‘Trisha Yearwood’s Southern Kitchen.’ The first season of the show was just a test run, but as it turns out, cooking fans love the ‘She’s in Love With the Boy’ hitmaker just as much as country music fans — the show has been renewed for a second season.
Taylor Swift is no stranger to collaborating with artists of all genres. In addition to working with Justin Bieber, the Civil Wars, and others, Swift recently laid down vocal tracks for rapper B.o.B.’s newest single, ‘Both of Us.’ Last week, B.o.B. made the trek to Swift’s home state of Tennessee to film a music video for the song. While he claims to have enjoyed his time down south, both the rapper and his country counterpart encountered some obstacles during the shoot.
