The original ‘Footloose’ soundtrack sold more than nine million copies, topped the Billboard charts, and spawned six top 40 singles — two of which went all the way to number one, earning Academy Award nominations in the process.
The remake has some big shoes to fill, needless to say, so you’ve got to give Blake Shelton credit for chutzpah: he covered Kenny Loggins’ chart-topping title track for the new soundtrack, and now you can hear it for yourself.
We already knew Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, and Taylor Swift had big years and now we know they stand to celebrate by cleaning up at the 2011 CMA Awards, where each of them have just been honored with multiple nominations in this year’s pool of potential winners.
The nominees were announced Tuesday at a pair of live events. Jake Owen and the Band Perry revealed the nominations for five categories during their joint appearance on ‘Good Morning America,’ then Jerrod Niemann and Thompson Square handled the rest from the Ryman in Nashville later in the morning.
The last time Tim McGraw and Faith Hill went on tour together, it went pretty well — the string of dates they shared in 2006 and 2007 broke the record for the top-grossing country tour of all time.
Next year, they’ll take their act on the road again, and although this looks like a much shorter run — only six dates have been announced — they’ll still be covering a lot of distance. In fact, they’re heading all the way to Australia.
It’s an old maxim that you should write what you know, and Taylor Swift has taken those words to heart, earning a reputation as a songwriter who leans heavily on the events of her own life — particularly her love life — as grist for her music.
Of course, it isn’t as easy as just coming up with a few rhymes about some boy she likes — and during a recent YouTube chat, Swift delved into some of her songwriting methods, as well as dishing a little about what fans can expect to hear from her next album.
Adkins invited members of the Middle Tennessee Big Brothers Big Sisters organization out to his farm last week, and they spent the day on his lake, enjoying activities like swimming, paddle boating, and, yes, fishing.
Clint Eastwood is famous in Hollywood for being a fast, no-nonsense director who brings his films in on time and under budget, but his next project — a remake of ‘A Star Is Born’ — is having trouble just getting started.
Eastwood initially cast Beyoncé in the lead, but her pregnancy seems likely to keep her from making the planned February 2012 start date, and his preferred leading man, Leonardo DiCaprio, has reportedly turned down the role. According to CMT’s sources, DiCaprio’s loss could end up being Tim McGraw‘s gain.
With millions of records sold in armloads of Grammys to their credit, the members of Lady Antebellum are certified country music royalty — so perhaps vocalist Hillary Scott was feeling like a princess the other night in New Hampshire when she met a frog backstage.
And even though Scott’s already found her prince in fiance Chris Tyrell, who can blame a girl for wanting to see if magic will strike twice?
“The charges being dropped against me pretty much says everything,” reflected Lawrence. The district attorney declined to pursue the case against Lawrence, citing a lack of confidence in available evidence, but the charges against the promoter are still pending.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a musician who doesn’t appreciate his or her fans — without them, after all, no one would be able to record or tour. But during a recent concert, rising country star Eric Church demonstrated just how much his fans mean to him.
