Randy Houser Interview: ‘How Country Feels’ Singer Still Laughing After Life’s Highs and Lows

When Randy Houser debuted with 'Anything Goes' in late 2008, many were wondering if country music had just found a future Male Vocalist of the Year nominee. He voice was -- and is -- that strong. 'Boots On' was a Top 5 follow-up, and then ... then he sort of got lost -- shuffled around like a middle-reliever in Major League Baseball, despite his talent as a singer and songwriter

Remember When Doctors Gave Clay Walker a Death Sentence?

In 1996 a doctor told Clay Walker he'd be in a wheelchair by 2000, and dead by 2004. It was a grim prognosis for a singer who was just beginning a superstar career. He was 26 years old, had a handful of No. 1 hits and a baby girl waiting for him at home. At first, the Texan just accepted the news.

60 Seconds With the Band Perry

What inspired 'Pioneer'? What's in store for their future? Talk about touring with Rascal Flatts ... These are all professional questions to ask a band like the Band Perry, a family trio that just found out their new album is atop the country album charts, with almost 130,000 copies sold it its debut week.

Brad Paisley, ‘Wheelhouse’ – Album Review

Brad Paisley's 'Wheelhouse' delivers a familiar mix of humor, life lessons and scorching guitar solos, but it does it in a way different from any of the other eight albums the 'Beat This Summer' singer has released. He took his old formula, balled it up, lit it on fire and tossed the ashes in the garbage. The result is a meaty and ambitious project that doesn't always click, but clears new ground when it does.

2013 ACM Awards Predictions

Despite the accuracy (or lack of accuracy) of these predictions for the 2013 ACM Awards, one thing is certain: one group of country fans will be ecstatic come Monday morning, while another will be furious that their favorite wasn't recognized for his or her talent and achievements. Only one out of every group of five can take the trophy for Entertainer, Male Vocalist, Female Vocalist and the other top prizes. This means four more will be left politely applauding for someone the industry says had a little better year. Fans tend to not be as graceful in defeat.
