Set your DVRs for Toby, AJ and Tonight's Tweets include some fun from Brad Paisley

Toby Keith is going to be one of the first guests on Sarah Palin's Fox News show tomorrow night. Or so Fox says. Toby, however, says he's never sat down with Palin and they are just using an old interview. Toby's rep, Elaine Schock, said "I have no idea what interview they are using. Toby’s talked to Fox a number of times, and I had no idea that this was going to be on Sarah Palin's special. Fox has never contacted me—not now, not when they were putting this together, not at all. I have no idea what they’re using." She later informed the Times that the interview likely occurred in early 2009.

Alan Jackson is hitting the small screen too. He will be the focus of A&E’s Private Sessions on April 11.

The NHL's players have voted Carrie Underwood the hottest spouse in the league, according to An unidentified player from the Eastern Conference says, "Many of us are good-looking guys with charm, so there is a lot to choose from. I'll take Mike Fisher's fiancee, though." I don't think Carrie would be up for him taking her but I'm sure she's flattered by the "compliment." Carrie is busy these days planning their wedding and says one family will definitely be part of the ceremony...her Chihuahua, Ace, will be one of the ring-bearers.

Speaking of ESPN, Kenny Chesney will appear on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning on April 7th, the day after the release of the duo's book Rules for Sports and Life, which Kenny wrote the preface for.

Dolly Parton is coming back to Hannah Montanta. She will reprise her role of "Aunt Dolly" on one of the final episodes of the series. Dolly, who is honorary godmother to Miley Cyrus, tells the Knoxville News Sentinel, "I'm very proud of her. I think she's a fabulous artist." No airdate has been set for Dolly's appearance on the show.

New music hits stores today plus Trace talks about his upcoming CD and Martina talks crossover

Some new music hit stores today! Alan Jackson released his new album "Freight Train" and Gretchen Wilson offers up "I Got Your Country Right Here", her first album for her label, Redneck Records.

Trace Adkins says a big reason he signed with Toby Keith's Show Dog Records was that he just wanted to have more fun and that's just what he's working on doing with his new CD. He says, "It's a real 'up' record. There's only a couple of slow songs included." No word yet on a title for the album, but it should be out in July.

Martina McBride doesn't care if country music crosses over to contemporary charts, or if pop, rock or urban stars record country albums. She tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "I have no problem with how people get here as long as they make good music. Country music has always had music that crossed over."

Wonder how much a lunch with Reba would cost you? Well more than just the price of a couple of sandwiches. A private lunch with Reba McEntire sold for 900-thousand dollars *gasp* at last weekend's 2010 Celebrity Fight Night. Three men combined their cash to win the opportunity to dine with Reba for good cause. Money raised at the event benefits Muhammad Ali's Parkinson's Center.

Tonight's Tweets:

@paisleyofficial: You know, I think silly putty looks more like actual skin than some people's actual skin.

Tim's in the news and tonight's Tweets

Tim McGraw was all over the news today for a few different reasons...One, all the hoopla over his Blindside co-star Sandra Bullock and her marital troubles. Here's what Tim had to say when asked about the situation "[Sandra Bullock's] tough. I'm not that tough. She's got a lot on her plate. I just wish her nothing but the best."

Tim also in the news for being added to the line-up to an upcoming Kenny Rogers tribute. Along with Tim, Darius Rucker, Billy Currington, Sheena Easton, Smokey Robinson and Chris Isaak are the latest performers to sign on to perform on the television special Kenny Rogers: The First 50 Years. They join previously announced guests Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Alison Krauss, Wynonna Judd and The Oak Ridge Boys. The show will tape on April 10th at MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Connecticut. No word yet on when it might be on TV.

And finally the biggest news of the day for Tim is that he's been cast in the indie comedy Dirty Girl, starring Milla Jovovich, William H. Macy, Mary Steenburgen and Dwight Yoakam. According to, the movie, set in 1987 in Oklahoma, is about "a high school tramp who's seeking the father she never knew and runs away with a closeted gay boy who wants to escape going to military school." Tim McGraw and Dwight Yoakam in a movie? I'm in!

Jake Owen fans- check out the latest issue of Country Weekly...he's in the mag talking about being single and what he wants in a woman.

Tonight's Tweets:

@juliannehough: Yay!!! Watching home videos wow... Derek is hilarious! Nothing has changed!

If Blake Shelton's gonna dish it out tonight, he better be ready to take it! Plus, Trace talks about his new boss Toby and Tonight's Tweets

Blake Shelton is going to be on Chelsea Lately tonight, but he doesn't want to sing. He said, "I want to sit there and throw jabs at her and have her throw them back at me." Blake is thrilled to be appearing on the show again since the last time he did it host Chelsea Handler started the interview by asking which Golden Girl he wanted to be intimate with. He spent the rest of the interview trying to recover. Ok, I'm not normally a big fan of this show but I'm going to have to DVR it now just to see what goes down!

Trace Adkins is recording a new album with his new label and he'll be getting some advice from his new boss too...Toby Keith. Now that Trace is signed to Toby's Show Dog Records he says, "I have a lot of respect for Toby. I'm finishing up this new record, and when I get ready to make that decision on what the first single is going to be, I'm going to sit down with him and we'll go over the stuff, because I value his opinion."

Tonight's Tweets:

@rascalflatts: What up fam? Cuttin some amazing stuff for ya. Havin an awesome time in Santa Barbara. Can't wait for yall to hear it. It's awesome

Taylor and Sugarland on You Tube Kellie and Justin's Twitpics plus, Kenny's coming to Oprah!

Congratulations to Winterblast star Easton Corbin who is at the top of the charts this week with his debut song A Little More Country Than That. He's the first male debut country artist since Dierks Bentley back in 2003 to see his opening single hit #1. Easton will make his national television debut on NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on April 1.

Video time!

Taylor Swift has put together a YouTube video to get fans and music industry folks to vote for her for this year's ACM awards. In the video, Taylor includes clips of her fans and performances during her Fearless Tour, as well as posing as a nerd trying to convince fans of her value as an entertainer.

Sugarland have released a very secretive YouTube video showing them in a studio somewhere in Atlanta making a new album.

Being on Oprah is the only logical way Kenny Chesney could think of to offer fans a peek of his upcoming movie Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D. He says, "If there's one thing about Oprah, it's the way she makes you feel so comfortable and understood ... you open up more than you knew you could and sometimes you even find out things about yourself." The Oprah crew also visits Kenny in Florida in the segment, which airs April 9th.

The ACM awards are coming up April 18th and we have a list of performers announced...Jason Aldean, Brooks and Dunn, Lady Antebellum, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins and Carrie Underwood are confirmed so far.

Brad Paisley tweets details about his H2O tour

Brad Paisley took to Twitter last night to give us a sneak peek of what his H2O tour is going to be like and it sounds SO cool! Here's what he said:

@paisleyofficial: Got a sec? Let me give ya'll a brief rundown of what we're goin for in this H2O tour,in my own words; This will take a few tweets though...

1st of all, why it starts at 4pm? we're settin up a waterworld plaza with FLW fishing & corvette race simulator,dunking booth for radio dj's..

And a seperate waterworld plaza stage feat. @eastoncorbin @steelmagnolia11 & @thejoshthompson. They start at 5. They are all tremendous.

Also I might add, you race against virtual ME in the corvette simulator. And if you beat me, you meet me.

It's like we are setting up a mini theme park everywhere we go. I for one am VERY excited about trying to dunk a few radio guys myself..

Then @ 7:30 the music on the main stage starts.@justincolemoore,@dariusrucker, and me.

And wait til you see the set & effects. It's all meant to feel like summer & water. I want you to be able to hop off your boat or outta yer pool,

..And go right to our show.Like yer on vacation. I wanna give you way more than just yer $'s worth.I want you to forget this crappy winter.

The sponsor helping us pull all this off is Chevy. And on the waterworld plaza stage Sea Ray Boats and Skinny Water.

We're also teaming up w Help Thru HealingHands world water charity with my friend @bfrist. We'll be raising $ for clean water...or um, H2O

And all of this is true. I know it's not normal for me to be serious on here, but I wanted to describe it all myself. I really can't wait.

Thank you for listening. We now return you to my regularly scheduled smartass tweets.

Gotta admit, I'm a little freaked about the whole DJs in the dunking booth thing since I'm terrified of water BUT if it's Jimmy Ray in the dunking booth and not me...Bring it On! :) We'll find out who gets dunked Friday, May 21st at the Va Beach Amphitheater. Tickets are on sale now...check out the details at

Trisha is on the cover of Redbook...I think. Lady A make it to the top, Brad gives us a sneak peek and Tonight's Tweets

Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" has crossed over and become a big Pop hit for the trio too. They just went #1 on the Pop chart with it...the last country artist to cross over and go #1 was Faith Hill "Breathe."

Sara Evans has been on a book tour promoting her first novel, The Sweet By and By and she already has plans to write more. She told fans at a recent book signing, "I have all these ideas and things that I want to happen to 'Jade' and things that I want her to experience." Sara is also working on a new album- YEAH!

It's all about Twitter tonight for our favorite country stars...

I have to admit...I used to follow Blake Shelton on Twitter but his tweets kept ticking me off! Maybe I can start following him again now that he's admitted that although he used to be addicted to Twitter he no longer feels the pressure to come up with something funny or controversial to start every day. Though Blake does Tweet some, now he's looking for the next big social networking fad. He says, "There's got to be something that Taylor Swift will make cool and I can jump in there and start doing that."

Brad Paisley was on a twitter kick for St Patty's day today. Check out his day...
@paisleyofficial: Holy cow, just saw a leprechan! Just saw a leprechan! Ran right by my chair! Freaking out! Dressed in green! Said something about gold! Aaah

Ow! He bit me! Little bastard! Do leprechans carry any diseases? He's a mean one. I'll name him"Lucky". I'm going to keep him 4 ever & ever.

Man leprechans can spit like llamas! He got me good. So I waterboarded him with a bottle of aquafina.

Got an idea. Feeding him coffee beans now... Will let you know how it turns out...

His eyes are watering..He's circling, circling, he's about to...we have Kope Lepruac! (trademark, all rights reserved)

Brewing..hmm...nutty...hint o'Irish Creme..not very good. Dang shame,Coulda been awesome.Kope Lepruac,Gold Jar,"magically delicious"Oh well.

Maybe I'll just barbeque him. Anybody ever barbeque a Leprechan? I hear it's even better than unicorn venison.

He's marinating in Guinness as we speak... And loving it, by the way.

Well dang, overcooked it. Tuff. Oh well, there's always next year. I'll keep my possum trap up,&practice the recipe with elves. Or smurfs.

More of Tonight's Tweets:
@rascalflatts: Happy St. Partys day. Oops Patty that is. Get on green or get pinched on ur thing. Lovin yall!!!!! G

@JustinColeMoore: I smell like baby turds and throw up...guess it's better than the adult version.

@JoeNichols: A St. Patrick's Day dance for you all:

@LuckymanEddie: Don't forget green margaritas

@whitneyduncan: The lady that does my eyebrows told me to lose my tweezers..ha, guess that means I'm bad at it:) lol

Some ACM winners already announced! Plus, Carrie sets a wedding date...will she tell? Tonight's Tweets and more!

Fans voted and decided this year’s ACM New Artist categories and the winners were announced today. Luke Bryan, Gloriana and Joey + Rory have been named Top New Solo Vocalist, Top New Vocal Group and Top New Vocal Duo. All three winners are now nominees for the Top New Artist award, which will be given out on the 45th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, to be broadcast LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 18th at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Carrie Underwood has set a wedding date with fiance Mike Fisher, but don't expect to know when it is. They are keeping it a secret to avoid a media circus. Carrie tells the Associated Press, "Like anybody, you deserve to get married and have a great day as people. I'm not going to be Carrie Underwood the entertainer walking down the aisle. I'm just Carrie, and I'm going to marry Mike. I feel like that's kind of a right everybody deserves to have." Good luck girl! I hope the paparazzi lets her have the day she wants.

Justin Moore
took to Twitter after his guitar was stolen following his performance last Friday night in Royal Oaks, Michigan. He tweeted, "Great show in Michigan tonight, but somebody stole my guitar off the stage. Please own up ... Do right." It worked! The guitar was returned by a friend of the culprit who wrote an apology letter confessing, "It was a drunken mistake." Justin was happy since this is the guitar he uses for songwriting and he was also very forgiving saying, "We all make mistakes, but we don't always make it right. It says a lot about this guy."

Dierks Bentley has announced a string of tour dates supporting his upcoming CD, Up on the Ridge, starting April 21st in Portland, Oregon. Dierks and his band The Travelin' McCourys, along with Texas artist Hayes Carll, will crisscross the country for 24 shows in 30 days. The closest they are coming to Hampton Roads is Charlottesville, May 3rd at the Jefferson Theater and May 18th in Richmond at the National. Definitely worth a road trip to see Dierks do bluegrass and Hayes Carll- one of my absolute favorites!

Speaking of touring...There will be a lot of feathers flying when the Eagles and the Dixie Chicks tour together this summer. The bands will hit the road June 8 for a North American stadium concert tour. Keith Urban will join them for select dates too.

Alan Jackson continues to get ready for the release of his new CD "Freight Train" exclusively with iTunes, today you can download "Every Now and Then"

Who should Carrie be watching out for? And who is teaming up with B&D? Plus, Tonight's Tweets- including more hilarity from Brad Paisley

Carrie Underwood better watch out for hockey fans in Canada...they mean business! For some her fiance, hockey player Mike Fisher, is their national treasure. Carrie tells the Toronto Sun, "A woman came up to me at the grocery store and chewed me out, telling me if I thought I was going to take Mike away from Ottawa, I had another thing coming, and she wasn't kidding." Hockey fans don't need to worry -- Carrie and Mike plan to spend most of their time in Canada during hockey season.

Brooks & Dunn have landed a star-studded lineup for their "Last Rodeo" concert special. The guys will film it after the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. Perfect timing since all the stars will be in town! Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, George Strait, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Sugarland, Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum will all perform. The special will air May 23 on CBS.

Tonight's Tweets:

@JoeNichols: I'm ice skating with my daughter today. She's doing great... I feel like Chaz Michael Michaels.

@sarahbuxton: I think I maaaaay try and start cutting out carbs. After I eat the chocolate I just bought. Maybe.

Lady A's Charles in the doghouse with his wife? Carrie's top secret tour plans and Tonight's Tweets

Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley missed his wife's birthday to co-write "Need You Now" with award-winning songwriter Josh Kear but now that I'm sure he's gotten some good royalty checks for that hit song he's been able to make it up to her. According to USA Today, a new house and diamonds did the trick. Lady A has been too busy for Charles to go home and enjoy the house, but wife Cassie is enjoying herself decorating.

Carrie Underwood kicked off her Play On tour tonight in Reading, Pennsylvania with Craig Morgan opening up for her Since she isn't coming to Hampton Roads here's what I hear the show will be like... Carrie promises the production elements will be top notch and there are rumors she will find her way to the back of the audience at some point during the tour...Carrie and her crew did a rehearsal in Mobile, Alabama, last month that was kept under wraps. Word is Carrie dropped around $500,000 for show production, catering and hotel accommodations in the city. While Mobile isn’t on the list of cities for the tour as of yet, there’s hope a fall date will be added...Craig will join Carrie each night for a duet late in each show.

Jamey Johnson is going to busy putting out new music this year, he plans to release two new albums this year. In July we'll get the Guitar Song, which will be upbeat and in the fall he’ll release a second album of more somber and serious material.

Tonight's Tweets:

@paisleyofficial: Actually the last day of the tour was Sat. I remember it well. This is the RODEO. Whole different thing. Lots of falling,similar that way.

@LBTmusic: Hello tweeples. Miss talking to you all. We are home an settled in. Thanks for the warm wishes and prayers. Elijah Dylan is just perfect.

@whitneyduncan: Pissed about Lily...she just picked the wrong song this week. Ugh...she was great! Her & Crystal r my faves.

@juliannehough: Listening to go your own way fleetwood mac driving with windows rolled down on freeway singing my heart out after yoga with sis! Love life!!

Preview AJ's new CD, Will Billy Currington be doing a hula dance soon...and Tonight's Tweets

Alan Jackson's new CD Freight Train isn't hitting stores until March 30th but you can preview it now. Starting today, one song per week will be released exclusively on iTunes up until it hits stores. This week's song is "Hard Hat and a Hammer," followed by "Every Now and Then" and "Where I Belong." And btw, the purchase of single-song downloads will count toward the purchase of the final album on I-Tunes when it comes out.

Since I'm Team Conan a BIG YEAH for Lady Antebellum- their appearance on David Letterman helped him beat Jay Leno in the ratings Monday night. Take that chin!

Well I told you yesterday Dierks Bentley is making a bluegrass record and now Billy Currington may be going Hawaiian. He's heading into the studio next week to start work on his next CD and he's says he’s been playing the ukulele a little and loves the sounds of the island music he hears while vacationing in Hawaii. We could hear some of it in his music at some point, maybe even on the new project.

The National Enquirer is reporting that Taylor Swift has a new man. Simply because the Enquirer is saying it...I don't buy it. But according to them, she's dating Glee star Cory Monteith (Finn) They would make a cute couple but again, the source in the Enquirer so Taylor and Cory probably haven't even met, much less dated.

Tonight's Tweets:

After Brad tweeted a pic of his nasty bruise last night he asked fans to come up with the best caption for the pic and tweeted his favs tonight @paisleyofficial: The winner so far. Hands down. RT @Wildaboutmusic: "The Hurt Rocker"?

@saraevansmusic: You're not going to believe which pop song I'm covering!

@davidnail: I will surely be sore tomorrow! A private hitting lesson with Mark McGwire will do that!

@jodeemessina: OUCH!!!!! FYI - There is NOTHING fun about taking an ice bath. Nor is there anything fun about trying to walk afterwards.

Tuesday, March 9, 2010

See Brad's bruise, find out who's expecting a new little rascal and Who did Miranda Lambert call a bone head?

Ouch! Brad Paisley tweeted a pic of his bruise from his fall in concert this past week and yeah...that looks like it smarts just a bit.

Congrats to Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts. He and wife Tiffany Fallon are expecting baby #2! Joe Don told, "We're a little more prepared but the same excitement is there. There's such fulfillment in being a father and it's going to be two-fold now, which is so cool."

Dierks Bentley has a new CD about to come out and as a Dierks fan and a bluegrass fan, I could not be more excited! The new CD will be called "Up on the Ridge" and will feature bluegrass and country stars like the Del McCoury Band, Chris Thile and the Punch Brothers, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Tim O’Brien and Sam Bush, among many others.

Miranda Lambert has a week off before her Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour starts, which means boyfriend Blake Shelton has just a few days to enjoy her home-cooking. She tells OK Magazine, "He loves my hamburger steak with cream of mushroom gravy. He's a meet-and-potatoes kind of guy. I cook Southern, not necessarily healthy ... my hamburger steak is one of a kind. I made it up myself."

Taylor Swift has landed on Glamour magazine’s list of the 50 Most Glamorous Women in the World for 2010, coming in at No. 6. Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) tops the list. I've seen the way Leighton Meester dresses off the show and can't wrap my head around her being #1 on any list other than Worst Dressed so I think Taylor should've been #1 here for sure.

The Zac Brown Band will release a live DVD and two CD set, Pass The Jar, May 4. The show was recorded at the FOX Theater in Atlanta and includes guest appearances by Little Big Town, Kid Rock and more.

Gary Allan's new CD hit stores today called Get Off On The Pain and he'll be on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight singing the title track.

Tonight's Tweets:

Brad Paisley takes a spill and tweets about it

Brad Paisley took a spill on stage Saturday at his final stop on the American Saturday Night Tour in Charleston, South Carolina. During the final song, "Alcohol," Brad tumbled, but he immediately bounced back up, thanked the audience and exited the stage. After Brad received treatment for bruising at the hospital, he wrote on Twitter, "All right, whoever posts the YouTube footage of it gets a meet-and-greet. I have got to see it. I hit hard. And I mean freaking hard." Here's the video that a fan posted Check below in Tonight's Tweets for more of Brad's thoughts on the fall.

I tried watching the Oscars last night but zzzzz- anyone else as bored as I was? The best part- Jimmy Kimmel's post show with Keith Urban! If you missed it- Keith sang "Til Summer Comes Around" and he even appeared as one of the handsome men in the "Handsome Men Club" You'll have to watch the video to understand that one lol

Will Miranda Lambert soon be Miranda Shelton? Blake Shelton says he and Miranda Lambert are closer and better than ever after five years together and for the first time, they can both envision themselves taking the next step and getting engaged. Good for them! Miranda seems like a good influence on Blake...when he gets a little crazy she can kick his butt :)

Congratulations to Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook, who welcomed son Elijah Dylan into the world on Friday. The new mom tells People magazine, "We've been waiting for this for a long time and can't tell you how thrilled and blessed we both feel." Elijah is the first child for Karen and Jimi, who'll pack up their new family to start touring in May.

Checkin in with Lady A, Jack Ingram and Danny Gokey plus new music in stores this week!

It's Wednesday so that's good news if you're a Lady Antebellum fan- they have a new Webisode up and in it Hillary's on a mission

Danny Gokey was my fav. last year on Idol so I'm excited to see him at Winterblast in 2 weeks! And loving his new song "My Best Days". He may not have written it himself but his connection to the song and one of its writers, Kent Blazy, is so personal it's almost surreal. He says, "The writer of the song, he ended up telling me that he wrote this song after his wife passed away. He said this is the first song that he wrote after she passed away that gave him hope again." If you don't remember Danny's background from Idol, his own wife, Sophia, died from complications arising during heart surgery four weeks before his AI audition. His debut CD, My Best Days, hit stores yesterday.

Jack Ingram is itching to start his Australian tour since his CMC (Country Music Channel) show, Rollin' with Jack Ingram, was one of the most watched shows on the Aussie network last month. He says, "I hear that Australians love their music, love their beer and love to have a real good time. I think we're going to have a lot in common." Jack's first show Down Under is Saturday in Sydney.

New music hit stores this week including Blake Shelton's new 6 song CD, Hillbilly Bone. Easton Corbin released his self-titled debut with "I'm A Little More Country Than That" on it. And Luke Bryan released a three-song EP called Spring Break Two: Hangover Edition. It's available exclusively through iTunes. The three songs -- "Wild Weekend," "Cold Beer Drinker" and "I'm Hungover" -- are all written by Luke and sound like he wrote them after either having a good time...or watching "The Hangover"

Tonight's Tweets:

@juliannehough: Oh gosh! So embarassed! Getting picked up in a limo with just me in it is uncomfortable... Ha ha Headed home to Nash! So excited to see fam

@taylorswift13: In celebration of the start of the Fearless Tour '10, the Tampa show has a 'you belong with me' dress code. Let's see some giant glasses!!

Little Big Town ask for your help, Sara Evans gets a restraining order and you fav. Country Stars tweet about the Bachelor

Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook are anxiously anticipating the birth of their first child this month, but instead of baby gifts, they're asking fans to help the children orphaned by the earthquake in Haiti. Karen writes at, "At such a desperate time in Haiti right now, in lieu of sending gifts to us, we would love your help in giving to an amazing organization called Danita's Children and Hope for Haiti Children's Center." Log onto to find different ways to help and to see how your money will be used.

The bad blood continues between Sara Evans and her ex-husband Craig Shelske. She has gotten a temporary restraining order against him. The order prohibits Craig from making derogatory comments in the media about her or allegations regarding what led to their divorce. A court hearing is scheduled for March 15th.
