Johnny Cash would have turned 80-years-old this year, and though he isn’t alive to celebrate his birthday, the celebrations continue. On Friday night (April 20), Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theatre in Austin, Texas was packed nearly to capacity with eager fans, friends and family members who came together for a party in the late Man in Black’s honor.
Following a smashing — albeit typical — performance from fellow Team Blake Shelton member RaeLynn, rocker Jordis Unga tried to hold onto her spot with a little country music of her own on Monday’s live episode of ‘The Voice.’ Per instruction by coach Shelton, Unga swapped her leather pants and gritty rockers for a feminine pink dress and a copy of Sara Evans‘ smash ‘A Little Bit Stronger.’
She may be the youngest contender, but RaeLynn proved she’s a leader — with sex appeal beyond her years — on Monday’s live quarterfinals episode of ‘The Voice.’ The 17-year-old country born and bred hopeful kicked things off for Team Blake Shelton, packing a punch with a female version of Jason Aldean‘s ‘She’s Country.’
Granger Smith will literally be ‘Sleeping on the Interstate‘ this week as he begins his second-annual 100-mile walk for the troops. The Texas-based singer-songwriter took off from south Austin on Sunday afternoon (April 15), followed closely behind by Texas state Governor Rick Perry, United States Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell and a supportive group of family, friends and fellow walkers.
On Monday’s first Live Shows episode of ‘The Voice,’ it was Team Blake Shelton vs. Team Christina Aguilera — two powerful teams taking the stage one by one to show viewers their worth. But none felt quite as heavy, or worth their weight in gold, as 17-year-old country sparkplug RaeLynn.
The 2012 ACM Awards winners were elated to collect their prizes on the eve of country music’s biggest party. The annual awards show, hosted for a second time by Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton, airs live from Sin City — Las Vegas, Nevada — and pays tribute to the most famous stars in the genre. Natural, selecting the best of the best and naming winners is a daunting task.
Late Tuesday night (March 6), Jerrod Niemann‘s tour bus went up in flames in Chattanooga, Tenn., Taste of Country has learned. The ‘Lover, Lover’ hitmaker appeared at Heart Strings for Hope, a benefit for St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and was just wrapping up when the bus broke out in flames around 10:45PM ET.
It’s obvious from her blind audition performance that Adley Stump has country music in her blood. Now, the Tulsa, Okla. native has a home on NBC’s ‘The Voice‘ — thanks to her grizzly rendition of Carrie Underwood’s ‘Last Name’ that got both Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera spinning in their chairs… Literally.
Congratulations are in order for Ronnie Dunn and his family — the ‘Cost of Livin” singer became a grandfather for the first time on Sunday (Feb. 26). Dunn found the news especially exciting, as his new grandson was lucky enough to be born on Johnny Cash‘s birthday.
As it begins to heat up outside and the snow and ice turn to green grass and fresh blooms, artists will churn out new country music releases for March 2012 faster than you can say “bring on spring break!”
The 2012 Grammy Awards, like every year prior, were held to pay tribute to accredited artists of all genres at what is considered music’s biggest night. Country music wasn’t left out in the cold, of course, and many big names came out to Los Angeles on Feb. 12 to represent with big belt buckles, big hair and big voices.
