Is Glee going Country? Plus, Darius on Letterman- I've got the video

If you missed Darius Rucker doing his new song "This" on Letterman last week here's the video

Dierks Bentley is coming to the Norva Friday May 13th- get a sneak peak of the tour from Dierks himself here!

Is Glee going all country?! “Glee’s” music supervisor, who chooses the songs, tells Vanity Fair he’s “all for the country episode.” So far, only two country or country cross-over songs have been covered on “Glee” and both were in the first season. Kristin Chenoweth as "April Rhodes" sang Carrie Underwood’s “Last Name.” And, later in the season, Lea Michele as Rachel sang the Miley Cyrus hit, “The Climb.” The music supervisor, P.J. Bloom, says he bets they’ll go country “for real at some point and dedicate an entire episode.” And, he says, quote, “believe me, my boys and girls down in Nashville hammer on me all the time about it. I wanna do them right.” With new cast member Chord Overstreet (Sam) on the show- there's already a country connection. His dad is country songwriter Paul Overstreet who's written BIG hits like Kenny Chesney's 'She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy,' 'When You Say Nothing at All,' recorded by Keith Whitley and later by Alison Krauss, the Judds' 'Love Can Build a Bridge' and Randy Travis' No. 1 hits, 'On the Other Hand' and 'Forever and Ever Amen.' Paul also reached No. 2 as an artist with the 1990 hit, 'Seein' My Father in Me.' Looks like Glee has a lot of songs to choose from right there! Until the country episode comes together though our fix for now will happen Feb 6th-Lady Antebellum is expected to be featured in Glee after the Super Bowl.

In stores today: Joe Nichols "Greatest Hits" CD

Also out today is Wynonna's first novel, Restless Heart. The story is about the "star is born" struggles and triumphs of Destiny Hart, who is on a path of self-discovery grappling with love, loss, success and surrender. Wynonna says, "I wanted to tell a story of a young woman with her life unfolding before her, facing incredible challenges and incredible opportunities, and making good decisions."
