It seems like these days, everyone is jumping on the country music bandwagon — even television shows! Country music was already well-represented on the small screen with Blake Shelton on ‘The Voice‘ and Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles on ‘Duets.’ And now, E!’s new show ‘Opening Act’ has added Martina McBride to the list of country stars making waves on television.
Even though Carrie Underwood is a few years Taylor Swift‘s senior, that hasn’t stopped music critics from lumping the two popular blonde singers into the same mold. Both Underwood and Swift have major crossover power, but that doesn’t mean that they are cut from the same cloth. In fact, Underwood recently told BANG Showbiz that she hates being compared to her 22-year-old fellow country/pop star.
Sara Evans and her husband, Jay Barker, already have seven kids between them — but that hasn’t kept the happy couple from wanting to add one more little one to their gigantic family. No one has spotted a baby bump just yet, but Evans recently opened up to OK! magazine about her desire to have another child.
Last Sunday (June 10), Little Big Town‘s 6th Annual Ride for the Cure event took place in Franklin and Columbia, Tenn. Unfortunately, the motorcycle ride was canceled due to a bad rainstorm, but the popular country act still managed to help raise more than $55,000 to help research cures for cancer, Leukemia, and AIDS.
Zac Brown Band is going to take the stage for a gigantic audience on July 9, when they play the State Farm Home Run Derby. The event is part of the Major League Baseball All-Star game, but before the best of baseball players face off against each other in a nine-inning game, the league’s biggest hitters will see who can hit the most home runs. The derby will air live on ESPN, and Zac Brown Band will be the lucky country stars to play their hits for a national audience.
Ever since Blake Shelton debuted his new single ‘Over’ on ‘The Voice,’ we’ve been anxiously awaiting more from the hilariously up-front country star. The wait is over. This morning, Shelton’s new video for the song debuted on CMT as a part of a 30-minute program called ‘Diary of a Director: Blake Shelton’s ‘Over.”
Judging by the country music fans hanging out at the CMA Music Festival in shorts and tank tops last weekend, summertime is definitely upon us. And what’s better than listening to new summer tunes during the warm weather months? To give you the perfect soundtrack for the summer, country star Jake Owen will release a ‘Summer Jam’ EP sometime during the season.
In an interview on ‘CBS This Morning’ a few weeks ago, ’90s country star Chely Wright talked about the painful process of coming out as a lesbian to the music industry. Although Wright hasn’t endured much open criticism from the country music industry, she admitted that she wished country stars would get vocal about supporting gay rights. It didn’t take long for Carrie Underwood to swoop to the rescue. Last week, she told the Independent that she believes in gay marriage.
