Miranda Lambert On Being A Role Model

Posted on: June 26th, 2014 by Bo

Miranda Lambert is on the cover of the new Ladies Home Journal and says she may not be the best role model for young girls.

She says, “I cuss and I drink and I have tattoos. It’s two Colt .45s and wings. I got it when I was 22, and it was the first thing I ever did without consulting my parents. I didn’t ask them because I didn’t want their answer.”

But it’s not like she had a string of rebellious acts. It sounds more like she inherited her strong will and independent streak.

“I would go up to the McDonald’s counter and order my own McNuggets,” she told the magazine. “My mom would be like, ‘If you’re not going to order them yourself, then you’re not getting any nuggets.’ She’d say, ‘You need to face your fears. You can’t just run away from everything you might be uncomfortable with.’ She always wanted me to stand on my own two feet.”

As for her role model status, while she admits some of the choices she makes may not sit well with everyone, “When a girl comes up to me after a show and says, ‘Thank you for being normal,’ that’s when I feel like I’ve done my job.”

This issue of Ladies Home Journal will be the last monthly issue they release as they cut back on publishing due to changing times.

Little Big Town Ready For The Next Step

Posted on: June 26th, 2014 by Bo

Little Big Town’s new album, ‘Pain Killer’, will be out this fall featuring their new song, “Day Drinking.”

Karen Fairchild tells Rolling Stone Country, “We knew the record was going to be called Pain Killer way on into the process because we love that song. That song is really kind of tongue-in-cheek — ‘be the person that numbs my pain.’ We started talking about tying that thread through the whole record, to ease your pain.”

As for Kimberly Schlapman, she shows off some sass on the song “Save Your Sin,” while the song, “Turn the Lights On,” has become the group’s opening song at concerts.

The band says they experimented with new sounds for the album, but Karen thinks long time fans will be happy with it. “The record is bold and provocative and yet it’s very fun,” she says. “It’s not a departure, it’s the next step.”

Kenny Chesney, Jake Owen and more country stars are heading to Broadway! Okay, not really, but a couple of their songs are.

The New York Musical Theatre Festival’s new production is called “Somewhere With You” and the music for it is modern country songs. Directed by Peter Zinn, it’s described as a coming-of-age love story between an aspiring country singer and a recovering meth addict and centering around a new generation of Southerners growing up in the early 2000s, confronted by the methamphetamine epidemic, the war in Iraq, and other post-9/11 challenges in the rural South.

Songwriter JT Harding is also part of the production team, and it’s his songs that will be featured in it. Among them are Kenny’s “Somewhere With You”, Jake’s “Alone With You” and Uncle Cracker’s “Smile”, along with several others.

Opening night for the show is July 8.

Posted on: June 25th, 2014 by Bo

2014 hasn’t been the kindest to Trace Adkins. It started off with Trace checking into rehab after a confrontation with a fan aboard a cruise ship. Then, his wife filed for divorce. But, this past weekend (June 21) things looked up for him as he was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.

Trace learned of the honor when he rolled into Dixie Landin’ Waterpark in Baton Rouge for what he thought was a simple concert but he was surprised by Mike Sheperd, the President and Executive Director of the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, who took the stage to give him the award.

Trace hails from Sarepta and is always proud to show his Louisiana pride, and even named his band, the Sarepta Gentleman’s Club, after his home town.
