Brad Paisley Wins In Battle Against Record Label

Posted on: July 31st, 2014 by Chris

Cooler heads prevailed in Brad Paisley’s assault on his record label this past weekend.

Last Saturday he waged a Twitter battle against executives over posting previews of his new album.  He also tweeted e-mail exchanges with his management and label, who tried to explain their objections to his actions. 

Arista Nashville head, Gary Overton, is now addressing the incident. He compares working with Brad to “riding a roller coaster,” saying “you know you’re going to scream, smile, and have a wild ride,” but “it’s generally safe.” 

Brad won the battle, and was allowed to officially and legally debut a preview of the song “Crushin’ It” on People.com. It’s the lead-off song on his new album, ‘Moonshine in the Trunk’, which will be in stores on August 25th.

Miranda Lambert To Act?

Posted on: July 30th, 2014 by Chris

Miranda Lambert may be trying her acting chops on in something other than videos for her music. Rumor is she’s working on a female-led comedy called ‘Something in the Water’..

It’s described as ‘Bridesmaids’ meets ‘Steel Magnolias,’ and is set in the heartland. It’s about five women challenging their men in a bass fishing competition, and if all goes as planned, Miranda will be taking on one of the roles.

Miranda has proven her acting skills before in her award-winning music videos and a guest spot on NBC’s ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.’ Plus she’s got a charisma and sense of humor made for the stage or camera.

Miranda will be at the Pensacola Bay Center September 11.

Hunter Hayes Releases “Tattoo” Video

Posted on: July 29th, 2014 by Chris

Hunter Hayes’ brand new video for “Tattoo” is out. The art-inspired song brings “Tattoo” to life with animated graphics, graffiti art and of course, a beautiful brunette who plays the muse to Hunter’s performance.

Hunter told People Country, “With a song like ‘Tattoo,’ it’s a very visual thing. Lyrically, the goal is to bring you to a place where all these artistic elements of inspiration come to life around you. So, for the video, rather than just explain how a relationship can inspire you, we wanted to go beyond the expected and make a musically inspired moment jump out of a two-dimensional space.”
