Jennifer Nettles will return to the studio on Monday (May 18) and start work on a new album after a short run on Broadway in ‘Chicago The Musical’. It will be her second solo album.

A new solo album for her means she and Sugarland partner Kristian Bush will wait longer before refocusing on the band, which they’ve both said will happen at some point.

She released her debut solo album ‘That Girl’ in January 2014. Kristian released his, ‘Southern Gravity’, last month.

Posted on: May 14th, 2015 by Chris

Happy anniversary to country music’s leading couple, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton! Today is their fourth wedding anniversary. They were married May 14, 2011 at Don Strange Ranch in Boerne, Texas.

Do you remember the night Blake says he fell for her? It was 2005 and they were singing “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” during the CMT 100 Greatest Duets concert.

“I was a married guy, you know, standing up there going, ‘Man, this shouldn’t be happening,’” he said during her Behind the Music special on VH1. “Looking back on that, I was falling in love with her right there onstage.”

Sam Hunt’s “House Party” Is ‘Kid Approved’

Posted on: May 12th, 2015 by Chris

It’s tough following two No.1 singles (“Leave The Night On”, “Take Your Time”), but Sam Hunt has that task as he releases his new song, “House Party”. He says he thinks it will be a hit with everyone, including a “younger” crowd.

“The reason I wanted to put it out is, my friends who have little brothers or sisters, or kids of their own — that’s the one song that ages four to 12 like the best,” he tells Rolling Stone Country, adding, “I like having that unbiased approval of a young child.”

Though the subject matter isn’t meant for kids, it’s hard to not bob your head along with the song. Give it a try:

Jana Kramer Takes Inde Film Role

Posted on: May 12th, 2015 by Chris

Jana Kramer is adding to her acting resume as she has a role in the new indie music drama, ‘Country Crush.’

Though the artist has made a name for herself in the music circuit, viewers took notice of Kramer on the WB’s drama One Tree Hill, and she has since also scored roles in 90210, Entourage and the movies Click and Prom Night.

Jana takes on the role of Katherine Bishop, a wife and young mother who is also the sister-in-law of Charlie Bishop, the male lead, who is fallen for by a woman who crosses his path as she goes from New York City to the country for a party.

Despite getting bit by the acting bug again she says she’s sticking to music.

“I love acting, but my heart and soul is in singing. I’ve been terrified to pursue this dream because it’s so personal to me. If someone tells me they don’t like my voice, it’s a lot harder of a hit to take. This is what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve wanted to do music my entire life.”

Jana is on CMT’s Next Women of Country Tour with Kelsea Ballerini, which hits The Swamp in Ft. Walton Beach this Friday (5/15).

Tim McGraw Pushing To Record New Music Before Tour

Posted on: May 11th, 2015 by Chris

Not only will Tim McGraw spend the summer on the road on his Shotgun Rider tour but he’ll be putting finishing touches on new music in what little down time he has. He says he’s already recorded a bunch of songs for it.

“We started working on it a couple of weeks ago, so we’re right in the thick of it now. Over the next couple of weeks I will working in the studio a lot,” he tells CBS News. “I’m really excited about it. There’s an incredible bunch of songs on this record and we had a lot of fun in the studio playing it. I’m looking forward to seeing how it all shakes out myself.”

As for what to expect, he says it’ll be music that matters and means something to him. “I think if you start chasing radio, if you start chasing what your fans want to hear — I think if you start chasing what you think is the end thing — it’s okay to include some of that stuff, but if you start chasing that as a home base I think you’re in trouble as an artist.”

If things go according to plan the new album should be out before the end of the year.
