  • It sounds like there was a cool little guitar pull in Nashville on Tuesday night (July 29). Only this one had some star power that wasn’t so little. Because Miranda Lambert was at the helm, and she had her songwriter friends who’ve written or co-written most of the biggest hits in Nashville in the past... Read more »

  • When Jason Aldean made his acting debut in the Western thriller Sweetwater back in 2013 alongside movie stars like January Jones and Ed Harris, fans and critics alike were all thinking, “Could this be Aldean’s new thing?” With fellow superstars like Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, Toby Keith, Kix Brooks making the leap to...

  • Man, are the charts popping this week! Finally. Americana favorite Jason Isbell edges out the mighty Alan Jackson to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s country albums chart, and Brantley Gilbert’s “One Hell of an Amen” ascends to the peak of the country airplay rankings, climaxing a 37-week climb. By Nielsen SoundScan’s count, Isbell’s album,... Read more »

  • Ten years ago, Kenny Chesney took the Farm Aid stage in Chicago to help Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews do something to help farmers thrive. Now it’s Kacey Musgraves‘ turn to represent modern country music at Farm Aid. Musgraves will be appearing at the music and food festival in Chicago on... Read more »

  • Forget Sweet Home, Alabama. For country music fans, it’s all about Sweet Home, Oregon, for the Oregon Jamboree taking place Friday through Sunday (July 31-Aug. 2). Never heard of the place? Well, it’s about to be all over your map as some the biggest names in country music trek up to picturesque northwest town for... Read more »

  • Whenever a big star does this feature in Us Weekly, you know it’s going to be pretty revealing. But when a guy like Alan Jackson — who has been at this country music gig for decades — does it, even better. Because even though we’ve all been reading about Jackson for years, it seems like...

  • Dallas, do you feel the love from Garth Brooks? Well, you should. In September, you’ll be getting face time with him. Brooks has announced seven shows taking place Sept. 17-22 at Dallas’ American Airlines Arena. More than 100,000 tickets were sold the first day they went on sale. Is it just me, or are, you,...

  • When someone like Luke Bryan gets to the top of his country music game, it’s easy to think it’s just about his good looks, his great music or some kind of combination of the two. But it’s not. Not 100 percent, anyway. I think it is all about Bryan’s attitude. “So many people get record... Read more »

  • You know when a band tweets simply, “(Please watch),” and adds eight sad emojis, the news is not good. So when Little Big Town shared a video on Sunday (July 26), with tape over Jimi Westbrook’s mouth, I had a feeling it was to make the kind of announcement nobody wants to hear: That because...

  • Just when you think you know a guy. I thought I had Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley kind of figured out. Then he does this interview with the Washington Post and says he and his bandmate Tyler Hubbard are “all about positive vibes over here.” Really? So I guess he’s not the bad boy I... Read more »
