American Idol...the country edition! Plus, Martina on the Grammy's and videos from Haggard and LBT!

American Idol is going country! AI producer Simon Lythgoe, his son Nigel and CMT have teamed for the music competition series CMT's Next Superstar, which will premiere on the network in April. The Nashville-based show follows a group of singer-songwriter hopefuls as they compete in music business-themed challenges each week. Viewers will determine the winner.

Look for Martina McBride on the Grammy's Sunday night. She's going to perform during an all-star salute to Aretha Franklin. Yolanda Adams, Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson will also participate in the Franklin tribute. The Grammys air live from Los Angeles' Staples Center Sunday (2/13) at 8pm ET on CBS.

Merle Haggard was on Leno last night! Check out the legendary country singer's performance
