Like any great awards show, the 2011 American Country Awards were packed full with practically as many performances as awards handed out. Host Trace Adkins kicked off the show with a medley of his hits before his co-host Kristin Chenoweth challenged him to a sing-off, which was the highlight of the evening, despite being mostly a joke.
Chris Young is taking a month-long break from drinking — or at least, that’s the goal. The ‘Tomorrow’ hitmaker shared via his Twitter page that he’s inciting No Alcohol December following the ever-popular No Shave November, which means he won’t drink until after Christmas.
In a time of economic grief, Ronnie Dunn‘s hit ‘Cost of Livin’‘ resonates with many people — not just country music fans. That’s why the song has been picked up as the central theme of two upcoming TV episodes of ‘The Doctors’ and ‘Dr. Phil.’
Toby Keith won’t make his ‘Glee‘ television debut until next week, but a full clip of the ‘Red Solo Cup‘ cover has already hit the web. When an old McKinley High School regular (played by Chord Overstreet) returns in the ‘Hold On to Sixteen’ episode, a party ensues, and the red party cups get passed around like candy — filled with sparkling cider, of course.
According to reports, Taylor Swift is on a list of females potentially suited to fill the role of Eponine in the new big screen adaptation of ‘Les Miserables,’ as directed by Oscar winner Tom Hooper. A source close to the film claims that Swift has even auditioned already.
It seems that Tim McGraw‘s next 30 years will be even sweeter than the last. A judge has ruled in favor of the ‘Felt Good on My Lips’ hitmaker in his legal battle with Curb Records, which means that the chains have been cut and he’s free to record new music apart from the label.
Poor Jake Owen. He can’t help it that beautiful women, especially drunk ones, throw themselves at him — but easy hookups are just not his style. In his new ‘Alone With You’ video, Owen speaks his mind and talks from the heart because the track he’s been running on has got him singing the blues.
You could say that Brantley Gilbert‘s 2011 Taste of Country Christmas Tour shows are going well. So far, the ‘Country Must Be Country Wide’ hitmaker has played four of the 10 concerts on his run, and all four have sold out. Although there are still tickets available for Gilbert's December 9th show in Wichita Falls at Denim & Diamonds, they are going quick. Gilbert has five other shows across Texas and Louisiana — two of which are already out of tickets, as well.
Tim McGraw is still searching for greener pastures. The iconic country singer is seeking to cut ties with his record label, Curb Records, once and for all, just so he can have the freedom to get new music to his patiently waiting fans. McGraw and Curb will go face to face in court starting Tuesday to hopefully find a resolution.
From the sound of it, Keith Urban will be better in no time following a successful throat surgery. The ‘Without You’ singer underwent the outpatient procedure to remove a polyp on his vocal chords earlier this week and thankfully, came out unscathed.
Scotty McCreery has something to be extra thankful for this year. The 18-year-old ‘American Idol’-winner-turned-country-superstar announced on Wednesday, Nov. 23, that his debut album, ‘Clear as Day,’ has reached gold status.
