Fans who tuned into the Grand Ole Opry last Friday (July 6) not only were able to hear Darius Rucker sing a couple of his hit songs, but also get a sneak peak of what’s to come from him later this year. During Old Crow Medicine’s set, the former Hootie and the Blowfish singer joined the band for a special rendition of ‘Wagon Wheel.’ Fans went crazy over Rucker’s cover of the Bob Dylan hit, leaving the singer quite pleased, and he later revealed why.
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.
Lady Antebellum made its debut in 2007 as guest vocalists on Jim Brickman's single "Never Alone", before signing to Capitol Records Nashville and releasing "Love Don't Live Here". The song peaked at No. 3 on the Hot Country Songs chart in May 2008, and served as the first single to the group's self-titled debut album. They were of course rewarded handsomely with the honor of Top New Duo or Group by the Academy of Country Music and New Artist of the Year by the Country Music Association that same year. Take a peek at that first video...
There is no hotter band in the country right now than Lady Antebellum. Last Sunday they won "Best Country Album" at the Grammy Awards for "Own The Night". They are the reigning CMA and ACM "Vocal Group of the Year". Tonight they are playing at Pepsi Center in Denver with Darius Rucker and Thompson Square (Who was also nominated for a Grammy).
With Lady Antebellum‘s Hillary Scott having tied the knot this month and Dave Haywood having proposed to his girlfriend in December, all three members of the trio are enjoying all the changes that come from leaving the single life behind. And, hey, now that marriage is figured out, why not start thinking about the next phase: a tour bus that can accommodate babies.
Nielsen and Billboard have released their 2011 Music Industry Report, and the findings are quite encouraging, especially for country music fans. With album sales up across the board for the first time in seven years and digital album sales on a surprisingly steady incline as well, Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum released two of the top-selling records of the year.
