Once in a blue moon I will hear someone sing that will bring me to tears. This is one of those times. Yeah, yeah, I'm a total sap. Chris and Leah O'Kane were getting married in an unfamiliar part of Ireland recently and chose this church because it was close... Continue reading

It happens all the time in movies and T.V. shows, but who thought this actually happened in real life? James Otto posted this picture to Facebook along with the caption: Welp......I'm an idiot! Was working in the attic & stepped for a beam and missed & put my foot through... Continue reading

Okay, I admit that this is completely random and definitely not confirmed (and likely never will be), but I still find it entertaining anyway. Yesterday I had a story about Dan + Shay singer, Dan Smyers, getting into a car accident on Tuesday. As often happens, I ended up digging... Continue reading

Photo: Facebook Oh say it ain't so, Uncle Jesse! Over the last few months, Ol' Dillo, the stuffed armadillo that travels around with Willie Nelson's band, has been stolen not once but twice. Now the armadillo rustler has been captured on camera and it's apparently none other than John Stamos,... Continue reading

Oh man, I love these. PBS has this series of videos called Blank on Blank where they take lost interviews with celebrities and animate them. No matter what the content or who is being interviewed, the videos are always delightful and interesting. Anyway, I'm so happy an interview has come... Continue reading
What! No Idaho dates? Boooo! Eric Church announced his new tour, The Outsiders World Tour, this morning and despite having 31 dates on the first leg, none are coming to my area. Yes, I'm honestly sad about that. Guess I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed for the second... Continue reading
Carrie Underwood let her inner princess (or '50s prom queen if you prefer) fly free at Monday night's ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute To The Troops where she also debuted a new song that was written specifically for the show. According to Gab friend Jason, Carrie along with Luke Laird,... Continue reading

So did they or didn't they? After Rascal Flatts performed at Sunday night's ACM Awards, the word on the street was that they had lip synced their performance. Being one who has never been hugely against lip syncing, I didn't even bother to take a second look at their performance... Continue reading

Sometimes the best part of an award show isn't what's happening on stage. Like this awkward moment when Miranda Lambert tried to high-five George Strait after he won Entertainer of the Year at Sunday night's ACM Awards only to be left hanging. Yeah, we've all had those awkward moments. And... Continue reading

Last night during the ACM's there was some major live tweeting happening. Fans, artists and writers took to twitter to let their opinions be known. The ACM's to a country music fan is kind of like The Superbowl to a football fan. It's a big night for us. However, Perez... Continue reading

Need a job? You might talk to Luke Bryan's people because I have a feeling they're going to have an opening for a merchandise person really, really soon. Last night, much of the country music world celebrated while George Strait took home the Entertainer of the Year award at the... Continue reading
Sunday night had the stars stepping out in their country finest (or not so finest) in Vegas for the 49th annual ACM Awards. In case you missed the show, here are tonight's winner's. Who are you happy about? Who are you pissed about? I will try and have all the... Continue reading

Forget all the award winners, the performances, fancy dresses and adorkable bowties, Carrie Underwood and Darius Rucker's synchronized head bobbing to Luke Bryan's performance was my favorite part of Sunday night's ACM Awards. Continue reading

April Fool's Day has come and gone, but this prank is going to live on forever. Definitely the best prank I've seen since I was a teen living in Washington and the local news station decided to have a breaking news story about the Space Needle tipping over. From Jezebel:... Continue reading

Photo: Facebook Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Craig Campbell is like most of the rest of the country music world and is currently in Vegas for tonight's ACM Awards. On the way to Vegas, however, Campbell met a man who was on his way... Continue reading
Check out the lyric video Brad Paisley just released for his new single River Bank. Such a fun song. Definitely makes me ready for summer weather. Continue reading

Country music's list of living legends has been dwindling rapidly lately, so if you are lucky enough to have one of the few remaining ones on your interview schedule, it only seems right to actually keep that appointment. Unfortunately, one popular DJ doesn't seem to see things the same way.... Continue reading

The Band Perry recently chatted with Broadway and told him the difference between singing to Americans and singing to fans in other countries. Sounds like the accents really throw them off. Check the interview out below or here if that doesn't work. Continue reading

Well wishes going out to Merle Haggard who was forced to cancel a concert on Thursday night due to pneumonia. Haggard, who will turn 77 on Sunday, was scheduled to perform at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma April 3, but was forced to... Continue reading

Not sure what a thigh gap is? Don't worry, the Eli Young Band doesn't seem too sure of what it is either. Continue reading

So yeah. Joel Crouse joined Broadway for an interview recently and revealed the weirdest thing a fan's ever given him ... pre-licked lollipops. Oh sure, pre-licked lollipops sounds gross as gross can be, but hearing Joel say, "We got ... we got you lollipops," is just about the cutest thing... Continue reading
