Maddie & Tae Turn The Tables On Country Boys

Posted on: July 25th, 2014 by Chris

Maddie & Tae are making waves with their song, “Girl in a Country Song,” and the tide is getting higher with the video.

The two teens (Maddie Marlow, 19, and Tae Dye, 18) turn the table on what is heard in a lot of country music right now and hopefully puts a light on some of the stereotypes that have come with it. They’re having the men act out various scenes in shot-shorts and tank tops doing the things the guys are usually singing about them doing.

“The video helps us put the point across that it’s hard being a girl in a country song,” Maddie tells Rolling Stone Country. “If the guys had to live up to the expectations that we do, I don’t think they could do it either.”

“The song is so topical and it’s what’s going on right now,” Tae says. .

The duo will perform the song on the ‘Today’ show on August 11.

Zac Brown Band Takes You Behind The Scenes In New Video

Posted on: July 25th, 2014 by Chris

The Zac Brown Band are giving you a behind-the-scenes look into the recording of their new song, “All Alright.”

It was recorded at their own Southern Ground Studios in Nashville and shows the band, with producer Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), sitting in the studio together, playing and singing. It shows the different way they recorded it, choosing play together, at the same time instead of laying down their own individual vocals and instruments and have them mixed in the end, which is much more common.

Miranda Takes You On A Tour Of Her Bus

Posted on: July 24th, 2014 by Chris

Shabby-chic decor, a pink refrigerator and a laundry shoot that’s how Miranda Lambert rolls.

She gave USA Weekend a look at her tour bus telling them, “Everything, when you step off this bus, is really pretty fast-paced and rock ‘n’ roll…I wanted some place where I could really have relaxation before I have to go out there and hit the craziness.”

As for Blake Shelton, she says he doesn’t hit the road with her much. “I guess because he’s got a TV show and a tour,” but they don’t necessarily make good busmates. “One time, he was like, ‘Three of my drawers are your clothes. I love you, but this is my tour bus. Can I have a drawer back?’”

Miranda rolls in to Cat Country in her condo on wheels on September 11 for a concert at the Bay Center!

Brad Says He’s Back To Making The Best Music He Can

Posted on: July 24th, 2014 by Chris

Brad Paisley is done with his experimental phase, for now. After branching out and recording with a rapper, a rocker and several experimental elements on his last album, ‘Wheelhouse’, he says he’s back to making the best music possible with ‘Moonshine in the Trunk’.

He tells Rolling Stone Country, “I hope [Moonshine in the Trunk] is something that you can put in your car and you’ll remember a lot of things about it right first listen, and it’ll also go down fairly smooth. But at the same time, I think you’ll see the creativity, too. There’s not phoning anything in on this record.”

“River Bank” is the first song off the album which will be out August 26.

Posted on: July 24th, 2014 by Chris

Kenny Chesney is making another football documentary. Word is he’s teamed up with video director Shaun Silva to create “The Believer,” a documentary about the University of South Carolina’s head football coach, Steve Spurrier. 

In college, Steve won the Heisman Trophy with the Florida Gators, and went on to play in the NFL. In over 30 years as a coach, he has brought championships to Duke and the University of Florida, and he’s the most successful football coach ever at South Carolina.

This is Kenny’s third go-round with ESPN. He helped create the high school football documentary “The Boys Of Fall” and “The Color Orange,” which told the story of the University of Tennessee’s Condredge Holloway.

“The Believer” will run on ESPN’s new SEC Network August 27th.

Dan + Shay Learn The History Of Their Tour Bus

Posted on: July 24th, 2014 by Chris

Dan + Shay aren’t just touring with Blake Shelton, they’re traveling in his old tour bus.

Dan Smyers tells CMT he and Shay Mooney only recently learned of its history, which was confirmed by a beer can. He said Blake visited them on the bus one night and said he thought it looked familiar to him. It was the color that tipped him off. 

Blake remembered that when he was asked what color it should be painted he held up a can of Bud Light and said, “Paint it this color.” 

Dan says they “held a beer up to it and it matched. It’s exactly that color. So Blake wasn’t lying.”

Imagine the stories that bus could tell if it could talk.

Cole Swindell Clearing Up “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight”

Posted on: July 23rd, 2014 by Chris

Cole Swindell wants to make it clear that the invitation he’s extending to an old flame in, “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” is a good thing. He says he’s heard quite a few people misunderstanding his intentions in this song.

Cole says with a laugh, “It’s funny — somebody [was] joking, like, ‘Why is Cole Swindell wishing bad on this girl hoping she gets lonely?’ But, you listen to the song, it’s a good ‘Hope You Get Lonely.’ Yeah, you just hope the girl wants to see you as much as you want to see her.”

Look for Cole to perform on the ‘CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock’ special coming up Tuesday, August 5th at 7:00 on WEAR Channel 3.
