Tyler Farr Buys First Home

Posted on: July 21st, 2014 by Chris

The success Tyler Farr has had with “Redneck Crazy” and “Whiskey In My Water” is paying off as he’s now a homeowner!

“I’ve never been the type of guy that’s ever needed a lot of things or any fancy things, but my lifelong goal has always been to have a piece of land and a house,” he tells People Country.

The home is log cabin style and sits on 32 acres along a river, about an hour south of Nashville. And, he has Jason Aldean as a neighbor.

Apparently, this wasn’t the first time Tyler had seen the home. “I had been to this house about five years ago with a couple of songwriter buddies of mine and just fell in love with it…Well, now that I happened to be looking, the guy that owns it was looking to sell. It’s funny how things lined up. I went and looked at it again and was sold!”

Tim McGraw Briefly Talks About ‘The Slap’

Posted on: July 21st, 2014 by Chris

Tim McGraw is speaking out about the slap hear around country music last week when a video of him supposedly hitting a fan in the face during a concert went viral.

While the video looks like Tim made contact with the fan, a rep for him released a statement to Billboard on Friday that said Tim “didn’t slap her” he “instinctively swatted” at her.

TMZ reports Tim spoke to media in Toronto about the incident saying, “It happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on.” Adding, “Nobody feels good about it, but there’s nothing that could be done about it.”

TMZ points out that Tim didn’t address the sequence of events in the video which show him shake the woman’s hand off his pants, pausing and then following up with the swing.

Apparently, it doesn’t matter. No charges or reports were filed and according to TMZ, as far as the law is concerned, police are on Tim’s side.

Brad Speaks Up About Concert Incident

Posted on: July 18th, 2014 by Chris

Brad Paisley is speaking up about the incident that had a woman removed from his show in San Diego last week and he says he agrees with the way the police handled the situation.

The woman, Megan Christopherson, was in the pit area of the July 10 show breastfeeding her 4-month-old child when police approached her and asked her to sit in seats they’d designated for her, or to leave. She chose to leave. Police say they were simply worried about the safety of her child being so close to loud speakers.

When speaking with a radio station in California today (KFRG) Brad said the police did the right thing.

“It seemed to me…it sure seemed that she did the absolute wrong thing.”

Not long after the incident Megan took to YouTube and posted a video claiming she was thrown out of the show because she was breastfeeding, which goes against the police reports and statements from other concert goers.

Brad admits he didn’t see the incident as he was performing during it and stresses he had “nothing to do with [it],” and while none of his people were involved, he did enough research to reach his own conclusion. “From what I was told by the authorities, according to the police it had nothing to do with breastfeeding at all,” he says adamantly, adding, “Nothing.”

A father himself, he understands their concern.

“There’s no way I would take a 6-month-old — or however old the baby is — into the pit at one of my concerts. When my kids go to concerts — and believe it or not, they were there at that one, and they rarely go — they look like Princess Leia, they have these huge earphones. And they’re back at the soundboard. Because even back there it’s 100 decibels.”

He believes that woman is at fault and hopes it will be a learning experience for her.

“I wish she would just learn from this as opposed to pretending to be a victim.”

Lady Antebellum Lands New Album In September

Posted on: July 18th, 2014 by Chris

The runway lights are on and Lady Antebellum will be landing ’747′ this fall.

The first song off it, “Bartender,” is one of their fastest chart climbing songs so far and they say they strategically chose the album title because of the music.

“We unanimously knew that our album title had to be 747,” Hillary Scott says. “The track itself has this pushing, driving spirit about it that sums up our attitude right now. We are pushing ourselves as a band and as songwriters…taking ourselves out of our comfort zone and not taking ourselves too seriously. There’s an urgency and an energy to it that we’ve never released before.”

Dave Haywood says this album also led them to try something new, reach out to find songs written by others.

“We had the opportunity to write with some new songwriters and really dig for outside songs that were songs we wish we’d written,” he says. “As we took them into the studio, we changed our approach and challenged ourselves to try some new things that were outside of what we’d done before.”

’747′ will be out September 30.

Posted on: July 18th, 2014 by Chris

Tim McGraw swatted a woman in the head who ripped his jeans while he was performing Sunday in Atlanta.  There’s also the possibility that she smacked his “area” if you will…

Tim was performing “Truck Yeah” and interacting with fans when a woman suddenly swatted at him.  She may have landed one because he seems to start yelling at her, although you can’t hear what he says.

He quickly turns away but she GRABS the preexisting hole in his jeans and rips them even more.  That’s when he reacts.  He brushes her hand back and then smacks the top of her head.  You can see her hair fly.

Three Charged In Taylor Swift Disturbance ‘Not Typical Troublemakers’

Posted on: July 17th, 2014 by Chris

Even smart people do dumb things sometimes. Turns out the three Connecticut 20-something’s charged with causing a disturbance at Taylor Swift’s Rhode Island mansion last month are not people you would expect this kind of trouble from.

The three – Michael Horrigan, 29, Tristan Kading, 28, and his sister Emily Kading, 26 – pleaded not guilty this week to hurling beer bottles and shouted expletives at security officers patrolling the property.

According to TMZ, Tristan Kading studied chemical oceanography, graduating from MIT. He also received the Richard Montgomery Award for Achievement in Mathematics. Emily Kading is a nuclear scientist specializing in agriculture and natural resources. She’s also studying to be a nuclear physicist. Both Tristan and Michael Horrigan have been given citations for heroism after saving a 12-year-old girl’s life when her canoe capsized.

Taylor was not home at the time of the June 14 incident.

Brett Eldredge Swims With Sharks

Posted on: July 17th, 2014 by Chris

A year after he jumped out of an airplane to celebrate his first #1 song (“Don’t Ya”), Brett Eldredge took a swim to celebrate “Beat of the Music” hitting the top of the charts. On an expedition arranged through the non-profit group Rock the Ocean, he and several friends swam with sharks without a cage.

“It’s so hard to get to the top of the charts, you push yourself so much, it feels like you should push a little further to celebrate once you do,” Eldredge tells People. “I like to push myself to live life to the fullest.” Was he afraid?

“Getting past the fear of breathing underwater was the first step,” he said after the dive. “But when you get to the bottom it’s so peaceful and quiet. Our second dive was to this beautiful old shipwreck, and sharks were everywhere.” So, what does he have planned if his new song, “Mean To Me” becomes his third chart topper?

“I just want to enjoy this one right now,” he says. “Today was the best day of my life, for real!”

Billy Keeps A Low Profile On Social Media

Posted on: July 16th, 2014 by Chris

If you’ve noticed that Billy Currington’s not quite as active on social media as some of his peers, it’s no accident. Billy has a reputation of keeping to himself.

“I like [to keep] a little more to myself sometimes. More than others, I’m sure, but that’s just me,” he tells ABC Radio News. Billy says he does enjoy Facebook, Twitter and Instagram — just not as much as his manager wants him to.

“I know people that I’m working with wish I was on it more. I hear that quite a bit, and that makes me not want to be a part of it sometimes,” he confesses. “I like it, when I want to use it, I’ll use it, and when I don’t, I don’t.”
