Did you know esteemed poet and author Maya Angelou is a country music fan? Neither did we! During a recent interview with Parade.com, the Pulitzer Prize winner admits she is a diehard country music fan at heart.
Miranda Lambert is a strong, assertive and often opinionated leading lady in country music, but the Texas native admits she has come a long way from her awkward high school days. The ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ singer recently revealed a side of herself to USA Weekend that many fans may never have known existed.
In a similar fashion to last week’s electrifying Kelly Clarkson & Robin Thicke ‘Duets‘ opening number, Jennifer Nettles and fellow celebrity mentor John Legend kicked off week three of competition with a flashy, choreographed performance of the 1974 Kiki Dee original ‘I’ve Got the Music in Me.’ The solid performance set the stage for a big night for Nettles, who remains the judge to beat after three impressive weeks with hopefuls J Rome and John Glosson.
It seems as though Jennifer Nettles has found herself a superstar! After an emotional performance of the Michael Bolton ballad ‘How Am I Supposed to Live Without You,’ J Rome maintained a perfect track record at the top of the scoreboard, leading the pack three-for-three in as many weeks of competition.
Well all know Kelly Clarkson is a country fan — and apparently her ‘Duets‘ partner, Jordan Meredith, is as well! In week three of competition, the two big-voiced singers chose to perform Miranda Lambert‘s ‘Mama’s Broken Heart,’ a fan favorite from the country singer’s latest chart-topping record, ‘Four the Record.’
Last week, Jennifer Nettles and John Glosson’s performance of the 1967 Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell original ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ earned mixed reviews from the superstar mentors, but fortunately for the Georgia natives, their sparse rendition of ‘How Great Thou Art’ during tonight’s episode of ‘Duets‘ placed Glosson as an overwhelming judge favorite.
Country legend George Jones has put his Williamson County, Tenn. estate up for auction, as reported by Music Row. The singer and his wife, Nancy, first attempted to sell the home and surrounding land for $15 million in 2011, but later removed the real estate listing.
With the bevy of country stars set to perform during tomorrow’s (June 6) 2012 CMT Music Awards live telecast, show producers seem rather excited about the performance from one of country music’s living legends, Hank Williams, Jr. The member of the country music’s royal family will take the stage to pay tribute to his father, Hank Williams, who was one of the most iconic artists in county music history.
She already has a handful of platinum albums to her name, but Miranda Lambert is celebrating another platinum career cornestone today. The ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ singer has passed the one million followers mark on her official Twitter account!
It looks as though Kenny Chesney‘s upcoming release, ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl,’ will not be his last on Sony Music Nashville — rather, it’s a first. The country superstar and his longtime label home have reached an exclusive worldwide recording agreement for all of Chesney’s future projects to be released under the Blue Chair/Columbia label, an imprint which gives the ‘Come Over’ singer more creative control.
After selling out more than 25 dates on his first headlining arena tour, Eric Church is in high demand! To accommodate his legions of loyal fans, the ‘Springsteen’ singer has announced an additional 44 dates for his Blood, Sweat & Beers tour.
