What's Keith Urban's guilty pleasure? Who just became a dad? and what superstar is releasing 2 new songs?...

Since my guilty pleasure is watching Keith Urban videos when I should be working I wondered...what's his guilty pleasure? Turns out it's not watching videos of himself...it's playing soft rock from the '70s and '80s on the piano. During his recent People Country Special cover shoot, Keith played and sang REO Speedwagon's "Keep On Loving You." Check it out on their website. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20343238,00.html

Rascal Flatts are offering a playlist of their love songs on itunes just in time for Valentine’s this Sunday. Download 14 songs for the 14th for 9.99 http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/14-love-songs-for-the-14th/id352491873

We debuted a new Kenny Chesney song for you this week "Ain't Back Yet" and Kenny says he wants to make sure you don't have to wait too long to get it on CD. He's adding it to his Greatest Hits II CD, along with another new song "This is Our Moment". The songs are both theme songs "Ain't Back Yet" is the theme for his upcoming 3D movie, and "This is Our Moment" is the ESPN's college football theme. If you already got the Greatest Hits CD when it was released last spring...don't worry you don't have to re buy it to get them. Both will be available digitally beginning on March 3rd.

Kenny says: "Those two songs are so much a moment. You want them when the moment is still fresh ... and I won't have a record out til next fall. So with all the options that are available in today's world, I kinda felt like there has to be a way to get this music to people, to be creative with it. I went back to my record company and asked them to help me figure this out."

Unset your DVR! Lady Antebellum's appearance on NBC’s The Today Show during the Winter Olympic games has been rescheduled for March 3. The trio were to appear February 17.

Want a guitar autographed by Taylor Swift...or have a 10 year old girl who would scream her head off to get one? :) Taylor will auction off the guitar she played at KEITH URBAN’s All For The Hall benefit concert last fall, with proceeds going to the Country Music Hall of Fame. The auction begins Saturday (February 13) and runs until the 26th. To place a bid, check out CountryMusicHallOfFame.org and click 'auctions'.
