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.

Joe Nichols On The Mend

Posted on: July 23rd, 2014 by Chris

Joe Nichols is one tough guy. He hasn’t missed a beat on his summer tour despite having back surgery just three weeks ago.

Joe told The Country Vibe that he injured his back through the years running, and doctors had to go in and cut away some bone from one of the bottom vertebra’s and remove some ligaments.

He had the surgery done on Monday, June 30th, and his doctor told him, “I want you pretty much on your back for at least two weeks and your healing time should take about three months.” But Joe says he was having none of it and told the doc, “I gotta work. I gotta go back to work on Friday.  I have babies to feed. I can’t just not do anything for two weeks.” Even telling him, “The show’s gotta go on. I highly advise myself to do it. I’ll be in pain, but it’ll be worth it.”

Joe says the hardest part of the surgery has been not being able to pick up his two year old daughter, Dylan. He was told not to lift anything over 10 pounds, and has listened to that advice.

Garth Has His Sights Set On Elvis

Posted on: July 23rd, 2014 by Chris

Garth Brooks is entering the digital age and that means he could pass Elvis Presley in sales and the Beatles aren’t necessarily out of reach either.

The number one selling artist since 1991, USA Today says if Garth is able to sell one million copies of his 18-disc collection, he’ll pass Elvis.

Garth made the announcement that he’ll sell his music on his redesigned website a couple of weeks ago and, even though not available yet, it’s highly likely to happen. The box set in question, ‘Blame It All on My Roots: Five Decades of Influences,’ sold nearly a million hard copies, and it was only sold at Walmart, and the distance between Elvis (134.5 million in sales) and Garth (134 million) is minimal given the added audience he’ll reach online.

If he catches Elvis, next up will be the Beatles, who have a substantial lead in sales at 177 million, but given the desire he says fans have to get his music online, nothing seems impossible. And, one advantage for Garth, he can price his music how he wants.

“If he’s just reissuing his old albums, he can sell them for basically whatever he wants and still have them count toward a spot on the chart,” explains Billboard’s associate director of charts/sales Keith Caulfield. And Garth has already said he will let fans “get it all at a stupid price.”

Posted on: July 22nd, 2014 by Chris

The Brothers Osborne chose a very specific location for their first music video, their hometown in Maryland.

The brothers were named to “Rolling Stone” magazine’s list of “10 Artists You Need To Know.”

He told Access Hollywood that he plans to win season seven saying, “I mean, let’s not beat around the bush. I am looking forward to mopping the floor with the other three coaches’ a**es. I do want to win real damn bad. I thought there after season 4 – I had won three seasons in a row – we thought that I had them all from there on out. And then it was OK with me that Adam won… that was his last one by the way! I don’t know if you read the script or not, but that’s how it’s gonna be.”

He also talked about new judge Pharrell Williams saying, “Pharrell has talked some people of the ledge several times during these blind auditions. I mean, people who are upset, they didn’t make it – he knows the exact right thing to say to people to make them feel. People will walk off that stage, not even having made the show, and feeling like they won.”

The next season of ‘The Voice’ with Blake, Pharrell Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani starts September 22.

Apparently, Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean are pretty good friends. The two recently went and grabbed a couple of drinks at Buffalo Wild Wings in Nashville.

ABC News Radio says Jason was already there with his girlfriend, Brittany Kerr, when Kenny called.

“He goes, ‘Well, I’m at somewhere. We’ve been drinking margaritas all day,’” Jason recalls. “I was like, ‘Well, come over here and meet us. We just sat down. We’ll have a beer. Whatever.’”

“He’s a good guy to kind to have there to kinda talk to about stuff and bounce ideas off of…and been-there done-that kind of thing,” Jason says of Kenny.

As for what they talked about, Jason says Kenny is ready to be back out in front of his fans. “I know he’s taking some time off right now, and he’s, like, already over it.”

Luckily for Cat Country he’ll burn off that penned up excitement on August 16 at the Flora-Bama in Orange Beach. His one and only scheduled show this year.

Posted on: July 21st, 2014 by Chris

Miranda Lambert bought Carrie Underwood a new motorcycle to say thanks for recording their duet, “Somethin’ Bad,” but she said it was up to Carrie to learn how to drive it.

Carrie is slowly working on her motorcycle skills.  She recently posted a video of herself wearing a helmet and sitting on a dirt bike on Instagram. 

Although not the bike Miranda gave her, it shows she’s working towards getting to that level.

Miranda got the idea to get Carrie a motorcycle after the two of them had one in the video for “Somethin’ Bad.”
