Kristian Bush Battles Zombies In New Video

Posted on: October 22nd, 2014 by Chris

Kristian Bush’s video for, “Trailer Hitch,” has a timely theme, zombies. 

He tells CMT, “a zombie apocalypse” is under way, and apparently “the only thing that can save us” is his guitar and “the backbeat of this song.” 

The “undead” element to the video was inspired by the same line that sparked the song — “I’ve never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch.” Kristian says he found the lyric “kinda funny” but also “kinda true. ”You can’t take it with you when you go.”

Blake Shelton ‘Most Crushed’ Country Star

Posted on: October 21st, 2014 by Chris

Blake Shelton is not just loved by fans, he’s been named the country musician with the most celebrity crushes.

Us Magazine has an article on which country artist’s have the most admitted celebrity crushes and Blake won by a nose. With five crushing on him (not including his wife, Miranda Lambert), Blake sits at the top of the ‘Crush’ list with Aisha Tyler (actress), Hoda Kotb (from the Today show), Jessica Alba (actress), Kimberly Perry (from The Band Perry) and Reba McEntire have all admitted that he’s their crush.

Keith Urban and Tim McGraw tied for second on the list with four. Again, Keith’s wife Nicole Kidman isn’t counted in that batch. Neith is Faith Hill for Tim. Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Lopez, Kathy Griffin (comedian) and Sara Evans wouldn’t mind being around Keith a bit more.

Those taking a liking to Tim include Chrissy Teigen (supermodel), Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman from Little Big Town and Michelle Williams (actress) all getting giggly over him.

Brantley Gilbert Engaged

Posted on: October 21st, 2014 by Chris

Brantley Gilbert had a surprise announcement today…he’s engaged! This morning on a radio program he said he’s marrying a girl he’s written many songs about.

“I met this little girl 10 years ago. You’ll hear her in most of my songs,” he shared. One of them, “More Than Miles” where he sangs:

“Cause that girl’s in every song I sing / She’s in every song I write / And that six string ridin’ in her seat / Won’t keep me warm tonight.”

At least once source says the song “Hell On An Angel” from his ‘Halfway to Heaven’ album is about his new fiancee. He admits “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” is one, too.

He says they dated years ago, drifted apart and recently rekindled old fires. “She was the one who got away for about five years,” he added. “I can honestly say I’ve never been happier.”

It’s the second engagement for Brantley, following a high-profile engagement to Jana Kramer that ended in 2013.

Carrie Puts The Brakes On Motorcycle Riding

Posted on: October 16th, 2014 by Chris

Carrie Underwood has dreams of being a biker mama this fall, but she’s had to put those plans on hold for now.

Earlier this year she got a motorcycle from Miranda Lambert as a ‘thank you’ gift for singing “Something Bad” with her, and Carrie promised she’d learn how to ride it. Her husband, Mike Fisher, even bought her a mini-bike to help her along, but she says those plans are on hold until after the baby comes.

“The whole pregnancy thing has kind of thrown a monkey wrench into my progress,” She tells CMT. “Mike bought me a little dirt bike to learn how to ride on first because the bike [Lambert bought] is a really big bike. It’s kind of serious, so I need some practice, and I was like, ‘OK, I guess we’ll have to take a timeout on the motorcycle lessons for a while!’”

Carrie is keeping her due date a secret saying it’s one thing as a celebrity she gets to keep secret. We’ll see (and guess) how far along she is when she co-hosts the CMA Awards with Brad Paisley on November 5.

Kenny Releases Live “Til It’s Gone” Video

Posted on: October 15th, 2014 by Chris

Kenny Chesney has released a live video for his latest single, “Til It’s Gone,” taken from his show at the Georgia Theater in Athens that was filmed for ‘CMT Instant Jam’ special.

Fewer than 1,000 people were in the audience for the show, so Kenny is glad to share the performance on a larger scale. Kenny says, “If you think about what the song says, it’s very much a one-on-one piece of communicating. It’s about hanging on to the one who matters to you.  For me, it’s talking straight to those hardcore fans who’ve been there — and saying ‘no matter where or what, I’m in this as long as you hang on.’”

Trisha Shows Off Her Gift From ‘Rocky’

Posted on: October 15th, 2014 by Chris

RCA Nashville

Trisha Yearwood unveiled the album cover for her new album, ‘PrizeFighter: Hit After Hit’ with a personal message on Facebook yesterday.

The album includes her first new material in seven years, including “PrizeFighter,” which she recorded with Kelly Clarkson, saying “I’m excited for you to be the first to see the PrizeFighter cd cover. The song ‘PrizeFighter’ describes for me the fight we all fight, whatever it is. It’s the courage to get up every day and give it your best shot, no matter the odds. For me, I learned that strength from my mama, Gwen. She went toe to toe with breast cancer, and though she lost her battle, she fought every step of the way with grace, dignity, humor, and love. She’s my prizefighter.”

the album will feature five other new songs as well as ten hits, including “She’s in Love With the Boy,” “XXX’s and OOO’s,” and “How Do I Live.”

As part of the post she also shared the album cover, which shows her in a glowing gown and tiara, with a pair of boxing gloves draped over her shoulder, which were given to her by none other than ‘Rocky’ himself. They were a gift from Sylvester Stallone, and he wore them while filming ‘Rocky V.’

The new album will be out November 17.
