What started off as an exciting trip to Las Vegas for the 2012 ACM Awards quickly turned sour for country duo Love and Theft. The duo’s Eric Gunderson wound up in handcuffs at the Nashville airport on Wednesday (March 28).
Since his wedding last fall, Randy Houser can’t seem to wipe the smile off his face — not that he’s complaining. He has a lot to be smiling about, including his brand new baby boy, West Yantz Houser, born March 6. West is the first child for Houser and his lovely wife, Jessa Yantz, who wed in the Dominican Republic in September of last year. Houser has kept most of the wedding details to himself since the big day, but recently opened up to share details of his nuptials with us.
In a few months, Justin Moore and Sunny Sweeney will link back up on the road for the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour… which also means Moore’s window for keeping his precious young daughters’ innocence in tact is getting smaller and smaller.
When Keith Urban says thank you to his team for their never-ending rallying and support of his career, he goes all out, every time. So it was only natural when his latest single ‘You Gonna Fly’ topped the charts for not one but two weeks, that he decided to send the entire marching band from Father Ryan High School in Nashville over to his record label, Capitol Records, to perform the song in celebration (check out the video below).
Tuesday afternoon (Feb. 28), Nashville’s BMI lobby was packed with the friends, family, industry peers and fellow co-writers of Eric Church, as they all had the same goal in mind: to pour a cold cocktail and celebrate one of country music’s hottest stars for his first ever No. 1 single, ‘Drink in My Hand.’
Justin Moore is getting ready to switch gears with his music, starting with the release of his third single from his latest album, ‘Outlaws Like Me.’ In just a few more weeks, Moore will drop his very first love song to country radio, ”Til My Last Day,’ which the singer co-wrote with Jeremy Stover and Brian Dean Maher.
Congratulations are in order for the legendary George Strait, who is now a proud (and might we add very cool) grandpa! Strait’s songwriting son Bubba and his wife Tamara welcomed their first child into the world last Thursday, Feb. 2, as announced by the glowing Gramps from onstage in Phoenix, Ariz. last week. Local country radio station KMLE broke the news following Strait’s show Friday night.
Miranda Lambert has rescheduled her performance this coming Friday (Feb. 3) in Tallahassee, Fla. at the Leon County Civic Center in order to attend a funeral for her childhood friend, Mark “Tex” Adams, who passed away last week. The new date for the show has been set for Thursday, May 17.
Over the weekend (Saturday, Jan. 21), Lee Brice was the latest country star to fall victim to an unexpected bus fire that destroyed his home on wheels. After pulling into Toby Keith‘s I Love This Bar and Grill restaurant in Mesa, Ariz., the back end of Brice’s Prevost tour bus caught on fire, but everyone escaped with minimal damage. Brice is now reflecting on the scare.
Don’t expect to see Darius Rucker making any late night runs to Walmart in the coming weeks to do any Christmas shopping for his kids. Not that he’s done with his Christmas shopping — he’s just not allowed to do any shopping for the holidays himself.
Over the past 10 years, Toby Keith has been the most-played artist on country radio. His feat as one of country music’s most influential artists was enough to garner the win for Artist of the Decade at the 2011 American Country Awards on Monday night (Dec. 5).
