Posted on: September 24th, 2014 by Chris

Miranda Lambert showed off her beach body while in Hawaii on her Platinum Tour.

She decided to make Hawaii a stop on the trek as a “reward for her band” for what’s been a long summer.

As for her new look, she told Women’s Health over the summer, “the scale is something that can be your worst enemy when you’re trying to lose weight…I usually just judge by my clothes.”

She also asaid “it’s really easy to gain weight and it’s really hard to lose weight,” and said that “staying focused” was her main goal each day.

“If I ate bad in the morning, I tried to do better at night, or vice versa. Just not blowing it all day long, every day.”

Dean Alexander Shows His Beginnings In First Video

Posted on: September 23rd, 2014 by Chris

For his first video, newcomer Dean Alexander returned to the place where his career started, Layla’s Bluegrass Inn in Nashville.

“That’s where I learned how to live a little,” he tells Taste of Country of his song “Live A Little”. In 2006, after pulling into town with $100 to his name, Dean says he got his first break when he was invited on stage, and Layla was watching. He remembers singing “Runaway” and “Fast as You” by his hero, Dwight Yoakam.

“Right when I got off, Layla gave me my first Tuesday night spot and that led to Friday nights and Saturday nights,” he recalls. That’s why he wanted it to be at the center of his first video. “I literally learned how be an entertainer off of that stage.”

Blake Shelton Works At Pizza Hut

Posted on: September 10th, 2014 by Chris

Blake Shelton showed up at a California Pizza Hut to sell a few pies. He posed as a worker named “Stephen”, going undercover for series of ads. Okay, not really. But he was dressed in a Pizza Hut uniform. Most customers recognized who he was.

Blake’s new album, ‘Bringing Back The Sunshine’ will be out September 30.
