Brantley Gilbert is no stranger to being inked. The ACM New Artist of the Year nominee already has at least three tattoos, including one on his left arm that has a skull in it, one on his rib cage and one between his shoulder blades.
We recently reported that Kenny Chesney unveiled the album artwork, title and track listing for his upcoming record, ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl.’ And while the name’s origin did have something to do with the beach, Chesney’s 13th studio album isn’t titled for the ocean or the aquatic life found within it. In fact, the name came as a result of a comment Chesney made about his lifestyle while visiting the Red Bar in Grayton Beach, Fla. with friends.
On Thursday, April 5, nearly 600 elementary students at East Tennessee’s Doak Elementary School got a surprise meet and greet with award-winning sibling trio the Band Perry. Though the students didn’t expect the visit from the ‘All Your Life’ singers, they certainly deserved it. The elementary school, which the Perrys attended when they were young, had just raised more than $40,000 for the American Cancer Society.
‘American Idol‘ first brought the idea of reality singing shows to its current fame on FOX. Then, NBC came back with their creative spin on the traditional show with ‘The Voice,’ which included coaches, mentors and teams rather than judges and contestants. And now, ABC is bringing a mentoring show of their own to this summer’s television lineup: ‘Duets,’ which premieres this May.
For the better part of last week, the week leading up to the ACM Awards, country stars visited the ‘Today‘ show to try their hand at co-hosting the fourth hour with Hoda Kotb while Kathie Lee Gifford was away. Then, this week, Kotb had her chance to get away while Gifford found some co-hosts of her own. One guest who tried his hand as a co-host Wednesday and Thursday of this week (April 4 and 5) was Billy Ray Cyrus.
In 2000, young singer Billy Gilman exploded onto the music scene as a 12-year-old with a killer voice and the musical chops to take him places. He released a debut record called ‘One Voice,’ sold more than 2 million copies and then had to take a step back from the industry when puberty put a crimp in his vocal style. Now, almost 12 years later, Gilman has found his voice again, and he’s choosing to use it for the sake of others.
This week, country stars Justin Moore and Miranda Lambert tweeted their disapproval for Ashton Kutcher’s dress and performance at last weekend’s ACM Awards. And while Lambert primarily mentioned that she thought Kutcher may have been poking fun rather than coming at the country genre in sincerity, Moore was quite a bit more candid with his thoughts, ending with, “I don’t care for people making a mockery of the way country artists’ dress.”
Blake Shelton may have done some pretty significant Taylor Swiftteasing from the stage of the ACM Awards last Sunday (April 1), but the comedic star says that, even though the blonde starlet beat him out for Entertainer of the Year, he knows her prize was well deserved given all that she’s done in the past year.
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw have been seeing a good bit of each other lately, as the two polish their boots in preparation for their upcoming Brothers of the Sun Tour, which kicks off June 2 in Tampa, Fla. Plus, the pair of country studs hit the ACM stage this past weekend (Sunday, April 1) to perform their new joint single ‘Feel Like a Rock Star.’ And then today (April 4), the two took their rocking single to the stage of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’
