Zac Brown’s Camp Southern Ground to Open in 2014
Zac Brown may have his own band, but that’s just one portion of the star’s entrepreneurial ventures — 1/12 to be exact. Brown helps operate a dozen companies, though he is quick to say he does it “with a lot of help of other people.” But the serial entrepreneur has one endeavor that seems to be taking up more of his time lately, and that’s his non-profit camp Camp Southern Ground, which will be op
Trisha Yearwood + Garth Brooks May Record Album and Tour
While both Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks are highly celebrated names in country music, they’re also parents, which does more to dictate their schedule at the moment than audience demand. However, with their youngest daughter set to graduate high school in 2014, the couple are starting to let themselves dream about life as empty-nesters.
Keith Urban Working ‘Feverishly’ on Next Record
We’ve seen a good bit of Keith Urban lately, what with his recent No. 1 single ‘You Gonna Fly,’ his surprise induction into the Grand Ole Opry and his role as a celebrity coach on the Australian version of ‘The Voice.’ But one thing most of Urban’s fans might not know is that between all of the appearances, the singer is also hard at work on his next record.
Jake Owen and Fiancee Planning Private Beachside Ceremony
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.
Miranda Lambert Gets Stock in the Green Bay Packers
Miranda Lambert hails from the Dallas suburb of Lindale, Texas, which is in Cowboy country when it comes to the NFL. Even if she were to go south a bit, we would expect Lambert to be pulling for the Houston Texans. But now, strangely, the ‘Over You’ singer is actually a shareholder of Wisconsin’s Green Bay Packers. We wonder if this will get the southern gal on her feet rooting for a team from the
Brad Paisley Makes Guest Appearance, Performs National Anthem on ‘South Park’
Brad Paisley made an appearance on ‘South Park’ Wednesday night (April 25) — sort of. Paisley’s voice was intertwined with a cartoon version of himself, and it was about as hilarious as you would imagine.
Chris Cagle Announces Plans for Comeback Summer Album
When Chris Cagle parted ways with Capitol Records more than three years ago in a particularly difficult time of his life, he didn’t know what the future would bring for his country music career. Now, the Louisiana native is back full force, with his single ‘Got My Country On’ sitting in the Top 20 and a new record, appropriately titled ‘Back in the Saddle,’ due out on May 29 with Bigger Picture Gr
Scotty McCreery Takes a Baseball to the Throat While Pitching
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 mom
Jason Aldean Grants Big Wish for Little Boy Battling Brain Cancer
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.

Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles Tries Out Potential ‘Duets’ Partners
The four celebrity judges for ABC’s upcoming show ‘Duets‘ — Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles, Kelly Clarkson, Lionel Richie and Robin Thicke — have all been scouring the country for dueting partners that they think can stand the heat of the spotlight. And while Kelly Clarkson recently pulled a couple of her top picks on stage with her at a San Diego show, we got a glimpse of a couple videos shot at Ne
Taylor Swift Dresses Up for a Night on the Town in Shirley MacLaine’s Honor
It seems that Taylor Swift and her friends love a good dress up party now and then. But these girls aren’t donning black miniskirts and red high heels for a night on the town. No, they’re more likely to be found in ribbons and lace, looking more like something out of ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ than ‘Sex and the City.’
Kenny Chesney Dishes on Touring With Tim McGraw and What Fans Can Expect This Time Around
