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.”
With more than 23 million albums sold in the US, four Grammy nominations and three Top 40 hits, Kid Rock has been more fortunate than most. But even after more than a decade as one of the most successful recording artists in the world, he hasn’t forgotten the importance of reaching out to those in need.
It’s been nearly 25 years since Def Leppard hit their commercial peak with the $12-million-selling ‘Hysteria’ album, but they can still pack ‘em in on the road. In fact, the veteran rockers’ latest run of dates — a package tour with fellow classic rock legends Heart — was the top-grossing draw of the last three months.
They faced some pretty stiff competition for concert dollars, too; with an overall gross of $14.5 million, the Def Leppard/Heart lineup bested the latest tours from the Red Hot Chili Peppers (in second place with $9.2 million) and Tim McGraw (in third with $7.4 million).
The last time they scheduled a show in Indiana, Sugarland made headlines for all the wrong reasons, suffering a horrific stage collapse that claimed the lives of seven concertgoers and injured more than 40 others.
The Zac Brown Band sold more than one million copies of their ‘You Get What You Give’ album, dominated the radio with three hit singles, and toured like crazy. However, it doesn’t look like they’re taking a break any time soon. In fact, they’re planning to start their next album.
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.
Miranda Lambert‘s latest single ‘Baggage Claim’ may not be finished climbing the country charts yet, but she isn’t waiting to give fans another taste of her upcoming album ‘Four the Record.’
Through a unique partnership with the makers of the popular iPhone app Hipstamatic, Lambert has debuted the full-length final version of ‘Mama’s Broken Heart’ — the album track that, as she told concert audiences a few weeks ago, she hopes will follow ‘Baggage Claim’ into heavy rotation on radio playlists.
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.
Brad Paisley visited more than 30 cities on his 2011 world tour and he’s gearing up to hit the road next year for a string of dates with Scotty McCreery, but he couldn’t say no when he was recently asked to do an extra bit of traveling – to Sesame Street.
He and his wife, actress Kimberly Williams Paisley, appeared as part of an upcoming prime time special dedicated to helping fight childhood hunger.
The New Yorker doesn’t usually devote much space to young artists or current trends, but they made an exception for Taylor Swift in their most recent issue, giving a full profile of the artist that, as they point out, has sold more albums in the last five years than any other musician.
Swift was characteristically frank in the article, offering her thoughts on life and love as a 21-year-old superstar and offering a few hints of what fans can expect to hear from her next album, due in 2012.
Williams, who compared a golf match between President Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner to “Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu,” attempted to clarify his remarks through a post on his website.
