Sugarland, Martina, Lady A, Brad, Darius and Miranda news Whew!

Set your DVRs- Country Stars are taking over TV this week! Friday, September 10:
Sugarland stops by the 'Today' show airing on NBC.

Plus, Martina McBride and Lady Antebellum will participate in an all-star musical collaboration during the 'Stand Up to Cancer' multi-network telethon, benefiting cancer research. Led by Stevie Wonder, Martina will perform with Natasha Bedingfield, Queen Latifah, Aaron Neville and Dave Stewart. The charity special will simulcast commercial-free on 17 channels beginning at 8:00 PM ET.

And finally, Blake Shelton closes out Friday with his performance on 'The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson' on CBS.

Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker are in the studio together working on Darius' upcoming sophomore country album. Brad writes on Twitter, "It's between a song we wrote and a Bluegrass version of 'Ebony and Ivory.' Tough choice." Darius is currently on Brad Paisley's H2O Tour.

Black Crowes front man Chris Robinson is the new Kayne West- he's hating on Taylor Swift. Chris told Nylon Guys magazine "I find it embarrassing that adults are like, 'Taylor Swift is very talented.' She's not. She might be cute, but she's horrible." Tell that to my 6 year old niece who sang me every word to "You Belong With Me" over and over this weekend. She thinks Taylor sounds great and so do millions of other fans!

Miranda Lambert is looking fitter these days and she credits a low-carb lifestyle for helping her loos a few pounds. But when she needs a day off from dieting, her go-to snack is Cheetos. She tells OK magazine, "I usually go with a 100-calorie pack...Every time I've ever had a fight with a boyfriend or anything, they always bring me Cheetos to make up. It's the way to my heart." Speaking of boyfriends, Miranda is set to marry longtime boyfriend Blake Shelton, an event that she says will happen in May of next year. "We're trying to figure out the final day. We can't nail anything down right now. We're looking at May. Next spring sometime. That'd be nice," Miranda told Lifeline Live (via USA Today.) As for making their marriage last, Miranda says she and Blake have what it takes. "We are fortunate that we have these amazing jobs but we really if we never sang another note, we'd be just as happy. That's why we're both confident our marriage will last forever. We're going to be fine and normal when this is over," she said. Will the happy couple be hearing the pitter-patter of little feet anytime soon? Probably not, says Miranda. "I just can't imagine at this point. We have a lot of dogs - five dogs, three go on the road. They're my dogs but now they're ours. I'm sure later on we'll talk about having a family. I wouldn't want to bring a kid into this crazy world right now," Miranda said.
