Taylor, Carrie and new CDs in stores today!

Taylor Swift will perform at the U.N. on October 25th, the day her album, Speak Now, is released. The event will be streamed worldwide live on CMT.com, MTV.com and VH1.com

Both Randy Houser and the Zac Brown Band have new CDs out today! Randy Houser says that even though they are both releasing albums on the same day, there’s no competition between them. "We’ve been telling people that whenever you go to the store to buy his, make sure you pick up mine,” Randy says. “Or when you go buy mine, make sure you pick up his. We don’t give a damn. We’re all family. We’re all just as proud of one another as we are of ourselves.” Billy Currington‘s Enjoy Yourself, Walker Hayes‘ self-titled EP, and Mel Tillis‘ comedy album, You Ain’t Gonna Believe This, are also available.

Carrie Underwood in a dress made of tofu? Carrie, a vegetarian, was asked if she'd every wear a dress made of meat, as Lady Gaga recently did at the MTV Video Music Awards, Carrie said, "I'm going to have to go with 'no' on that. Maybe soy, or a tofurkey dress. It's currently in the works," she joked. Asked why she became a vegetarian in the first place, Carrie noted that a lot of media outlets have gotten the story wrong. "I quit eating beef when I was young because I grew up on a farm," she said. "A lot of people kind of take it to the extreme, like I'm anti-everything, but it's definitely an industry that I respect. My whole family eats meat, and so does [husband] Mike [Fisher]”. Carrie continued "But they were like my pets," she said of the farm animals. "I bottle-fed them, and I had a very close bond with some of them. Once I learned why we had them, that was that. It was a pretty traumatic experience."
