Is there anything better than sunbathing while listening to your favorite music? Blake Shelton doesn’t think so. That’s why he created a jam-packed country music cruise, which will float the waters off the coast of Miami and feature a bang-up lineup of country stars. The cruise was already bursting with star power, but Shelton’s team recently added several rockin’ artists to the lineup.
It hasn’t been long since Season 2 of ‘The Voice‘ ended, with Team Blake Shelton member Jermaine Paul taking home the crown. But already, NBC is making plans for the next season of the hit singing competition, and network chief Bob Greenblatt has announced that the show will now air twice a year.
Not too long ago, we reported that ABC staked a claim in Nashville to film the pilot for a new TV drama by the same name. Starring Connie Britton (the mainstay guidance counselor and coach’s wife on ‘Friday Night Lights’), ‘Heroes’ beauty Hayden Panettiere and a handful of other experienced stars, this show about the behind-the-scenes drama in country music is sure to be a hit. Just check out the ‘Nashville’ trailer (below) and you’ll understand why.
Carrie Underwood has really been making her rounds to promote ‘Blown Away,’ her newest album release. And while the entire album has received critical acclaim from the media, ‘Good Girl’ — the first single from the record — is her most performed song nowadays. On Tuesday night (May 15), Underwood took the soulful anthem to the stage on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ where she was accompanied by four dancers who tore up the rug.
On Tuesday night, Jermaine Paul was named ‘The Voice’ winner on the hit NBC show by the same name. Paul snagged the top spot on the show after making it to the final round, where he competed against three other contestants. Although his singing voice speaks for itself, Paul gives major props to coach and country music star Blake Shelton for the win.
Every year, racing fans, horse lovers, debutantes and country music stars flock to the Kentucky Derby for a day (or an entire weekend, for some) of horse racing, mint juleps and Old South-style fun. Of course, the derby is all about the horses and the galas — unless you’re one of the fashionable folks who would rather just take in the dresses, suits and hats. This year, Miranda Lambert looked to Kate Middleton for fashion inspiration, and the result was a world-class derby hat atop her head.
Kellie Pickler is well-known for her tender-hearted love for animals. In 2008, she and close pal Carrie Underwood gave up eating meat, and in 2009, PETA even named Pickler the world’s sexiest vegetarian. But who would have thought that the ‘American Idol’ star’s great love for animals extends to the biggest of the bunch? In Pickler’s episode of ‘Day Jobs,’ which airs tonight (May 2), the ’100 Proof’ hitmaker gets to work as an elephant caretaker for a day!
It looks like Jennifer Nettles isn’t the only Sugarland member who wants to spend time coaching young talent. While Nettles is preparing to team up with country hopeful on the ABC reality series ‘Duets’ this summer, her band member Kristian Bush recently started shaping the career of Alana Springsteen, a talented 11-year-old girl who is an aspiring singer.
Carrie Underwood is planning to bring some country twang to the 2012 Billboard Music Awards on May 20. The country mega-star will share the stage with big name pop artists like Justin Bieber, LMFAO and the Wanted.
Can Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera duet? It’s hard to say, but judging by the tweets we saw going back and forth between the two ‘The Voice‘ judges earlier this week, a Shelton/Aguilera country mash-up might not be too far away.
Lauren Alaina debuted a few surprises for fans at her performance in Kentucky on Saturday night. For starters, she walked onstage with a shorter new haircut. But the real kicker happened when the 17-year-old ‘American Idol’ runner-up announced that she had missed her own prom, so she was going to throw one herself — onstage.
Not long ago, Miranda Lambert assured fans that she and hubby Blake Shelton aren’t planning to have any babies in the near future. This week, the reason why becomes apparent: The ‘Over You’ singer just can’t stop welcoming furry friends into the couples’ home long enough to focus on anything else.
