Eli Young Band have literally seen their career catapult onto center stage in the past few months. After their single ‘Crazy Girl’ became their first No.1 hit, the four-man country outfit snagged an ACM Award for Song of the Year with the same smash hit, making an underdog story to be remembered. But even in the face of so many great things at once, the guys are not about to forget who it was that helped them get to this point.
This week, the Band Perry are hanging out in New Orleans, Louisiana shooting their music video for their single ‘Postcard From Paris,’ and from the looks of a photo they posted to Twitter, they seem to be enjoying themselves.
On Wedensday (April 25), George Jones posted a special video message to his fans on his website, thanking them for sticking by him and praying for his recovery as he battled a recent upper respiratory infection. The video seemed to be ready to close with a nice sentiment, but then — strangely — Jones went on to accuse his daughter of spreading lies about him because she wanted his money.
Alan Jackson has been the owner of some impressive real estate in his day. From his $28 million Williamson County estate — which he and his wife sold earlier this year to move to a gated community — to his $15 million, $19,000 Juniper Island, Florida estate — which is still on the market — Jackson and his wife seem to be simplifying as their daughters get older. And now, adding to the list of properties they have decided to sell this year, the Jacksons are putting their equally mind-boggling lakeside retreat on the market for $4,995,000.
As a celebrity coach on NBC’s hit show ‘The Voice,’ Blake Shelton spends most of his time sitting alongside his fellow coaches in his futuristic-looking red swivel chair that has become such an integral part of the show. But next week, the laid-back country coach will be taking a break from his chair-warming duties to join his four remaining team members onstage. Though Shelton has a slight advantage over his team members (he can’t get voted off), he will be stepping into their shoes Monday night (April 16) for a joint performance.
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.
The 2012 ACM Awards are shaping up to be quite an entertaining evening, with new country stars being added to the celebrity lineup of performers each day. That’s in addition to a live onstage wedding, and now, a list of country talents set to bring special duets to the ACM stage. The Academy announced today (March 29) the lineup of special collaborations that are slated to be a part of country music’s “party of the year.”
Miranda Lambert and Chris Young sat down at the table with the ladies of CBS’ ‘The Talk’ on Thursday morning, and Lambert decided to offer up a little nugget of trivia about the 26-year-old country crooner joining her on the show. “I have a secret that I know,” she began, pausing. “About him — but you’re not going to expect what I’m about to say.”
Anyone who knows anything about Reba McEntire understands one thing about the seemingly ubiquitous superstar: her schedule is jam packed. But McEntire’s biggest fans also know that the multi-dimensional talent always puts her family first. This weekend, McEntire will be making that loud and clear as she heads out to host the 47th annual ACM Awards with Blake Shelton. While everyone else is already in Las Vegas scrambling around in preparation for the show, McEntire will be in Birmingham, Ala. cheering on her son, Shelby Blackstock, as he races at Barber Motorsports Park.
In 2010, Alan Jackson and his family received the news no one ever wants to hear. His wife, Denise Jackson, had been diagnosed with cancer. In an episode of GAC’s ‘Backstory’ last year, the ’Chattahoochee’ singer confessed what a difficult time it was for him to see his high school sweetheart suffering, saying, “To see her go through that, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through. I’ve been taking care of her since she was 16, but I couldn’t do anything to help her. It was tough.”
George Strait hasn’t been writing and releasing music since he was born, but if he had, and he had one No.1 hit every year of his life, he would be right where he is now. The 59-year-old country king is celebrating his astounding 59th No. 1 hit with ‘Love’s Gonna Make It Alright’ from his September 2011 Grammy-nominated record, ‘Here for a Good Time.’
