Amazing! Man Solves Rubik’s Cube While Juggling Two More [VIDEO]

Steel Magnolia’s Meghan Linsey Says Struggling Made Them a Stronger Act

When the members of Steel Magnolia agreed to join Reba McEntire on her All the Women I Am tour, they certainly didn’t count on vocalist Meghan Linsey having to handle the microphone alone while her partner, Joshua Scott Jones, entered rehab to deal with alcohol and substance abuse issues.

But as Linsey made clear in a recent interview, she and Jones are no strangers to struggle — and her long-standing admiration for Reba meant that she and the band would fulfill their touring obligations, no matter what.

Dierks Bentley Comes ‘Home’ to Country Music in New Album [AUDIO]

For a guy who’s on the road as much as Dierks Bentley, naming a song ‘Home‘ could be seen as a sort of wistfully ironic joke. But in the case of Bentley’s latest single, currently hovering outside the Top 40 at country radio, the title ‘Home’ has more than one meaning.

“I think that title of that song is special to me because I’m coming home to country music,” he told CMT during a recent interview. “I’m on the road all the time, so everywhere we go has a hometown feel.”

The Band Perry’s ‘If I Die Young’ Goes Triple Platinum

A year ago, the Band Perry was just another young country trio with a brand new album and a bunch of big dreams to its name.

Faith Hill to Perform New Song, ‘Come Home,’ at CMA Awards

For Faith Hill fans, it’s been a long four-year wait for new material. Her most recent recordings are a pair of songs (‘Lost’ and ‘Red Umbrella’) she included with her 2007 compilation ‘The Hits.’

In the meantime, Hill’s kept a relatively low profile as she works on the follow-up to 2005′s ‘Fireflies’ — but it sounds like she might finally be ready to break her silence.

Will Scotty McCreery’s ‘Clear as Day’ Top the Charts?

Scotty McCreery is poised to claim the Number One spot when his first full-length effort ‘Clear as Day’ makes its debut on the charts next week. But will he actually pull it off?

It’s been nearly a decade since ‘American Idol‘ was able to turn all its ratings mojo into a Number One album debut for one of its contestants. The last one was Ruben Studdard, whose ‘Thankful’ bowed at the top of the charts way back in December 2003.

Will Tim McGraw Star in Clint Eastwood’s ‘A Star Is Born’? [VIDEO]

Clint Eastwood isn’t exactly known for romances, either as an actor or as a director, so when word surfaced that he was planning to helm a remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ with Tim McGraw as a possible star, people naturally wanted to know more. We’ve heard plenty of the rumors as well, including the reported involvement (and subsequent un-involvement) of Beyoncé Knowles and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Little has been made official, however, so you can hardly blame the hosts of NBC’s ‘Today’ for trying to pry the scoop from McGraw during an interview.
