Posted on: July 29th, 2014 by Chris

Justin Moore is outnumbered in his home and had the scales tipped further when his third daughter, Rebecca Klein was born two weeks ago (the family is calling her by her middle name).

But, with as much chaos as expected, he says he’s been surprised telling People, “It hasn’t been as crazy as I imagined it would be.”

As for how she’s fitting in with her sisters, Kennedy (2½) and Ella (4), Justin says, “It has been a blast to see Ella and Ken interact with their new baby sister.”

Check out Klein’s first pictures here.

Justin will be in Cat Country with Miranda Lambert at the Bay Center on 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.”

The home sits on half an acre of wooded land and is a short walk to a private beach access on Paradise Cove Beach.

Brad Paisley, “I’m Going Rogue”

Posted on: July 28th, 2014 by Chris

Brad Paisley is a bit more anxious for you to hear music from his upcoming album ‘Moonshine In The Trunk’ than his label is.

Over the weekend, he posted a video previewing each song on it:

The tweet was followed by screenshots of several emails from his label, Sony Music Nashville, along with texts and emails from his manager, telling him that permissions aren’t in place for such leaks. Brad’s response, “I love you guys. But go —- yourselves.” (Paisley blacked out the obvious four-letter word before ‘yourselves,’ along with the names and email addresses.)

In another email, Brad promised he wouldn’t post any more new songs. So he turned to his ‘Rising Star’ co-judge, Ludacris, who posted this preview:

This has a lot of people wondering if this is a stunt or is Brad really getting under the skin of people at the label? He did file $10 million lawsuit against them earlier this year, for breach of contract and unpaid royalties, among other claims.

‘Moonshine’ will be out August 26.

Jerrod Niemann Wants Keith Urban To Bail Him Out Of Jail

Posted on: July 28th, 2014 by Chris

Keith Urban may become a bail bondsman if Jerrod Niemann get’s his way on Keith’s ‘Raise ‘Em Up Tour’.

He tells The Country Vibe, “I just look forward to getting out there and seeing if I can get Brett Eldredge arrested and seeing if Keith will bail us out.”

Of course, he’s kidding…maybe, but he does call this a dream come true. “Keith is one of those guys where you feel like you’re lying when you tell people you’re going on tour with Keith Urban because it just sounds too big and too good to be true.”

Jerrod has time to plan out the mischief as the tour runs through September.

Tim McGraw’s Slap Victim Hires Lawyer

Posted on: July 28th, 2014 by Chris

It was bound to happen, the fan that Tim McGraw slapped at a concert in Atlanta a few weeks ago has hired a lawyer is considering legal action and wants a personal apology from him.

The fan’s lawyer, Eric Hertz, told TMZ that the she feels “humiliated” after the incident and wants an apology. He adds that she was not trying to harm Tim when she touched his leg during the show saying there was an “interactive environment” that she was responding to.

Tim’s team said from the start, “At the end of the night during the encore, Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go as he was moving through the crowd. He instinctively swatted to try and keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing), and so he could get to more fans who were trying to slap hands with him before the end of the show. He didn’t know who had grabbed him and was trying to keep his pants from being torn.” They have not responded to this development, yet.

TMZ says they talked to police and they side with Tim and feel he’s the victim.

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.
