Rascal Flatts Facebook App, Another Big Movie star goes country? And more!

Direct your own Rascal Flatts video! They guys have put out a new Facebook application so fans can design their own music video “mashup” of the ‘I Won’t Let Go.’ Just upload up to four photos and three videos to create your own music video that will not only be available on the group’s Facebook page, but yours as well. Besides the fun of making the video...you could always win something! If you become a part of the trio’s new mashup gallery — and your submission is the best — you can win a trip to the set of the next Rascal Flatts music video shoot, where you’ll be in charge! The ultimate inspiration for this contest came from the idea to “put the fans in the director’s chair.” Click here to get started

First Gwyneth Paltrow played a country singer now is Jennifer Aniston following in her footsteps? According to USA Today, Jennifer is gearing up for a new fact-based movie role set in the 1940s, where Aniston will portray a member of the Goree Girls — an all-female country music band formed in a Texas prison. The actress, who is currently in Mexico City promoting her new fragrance line, describes the Goree Girls as “sort of the Dixie Chicks of their time.” The movie is based on real events that took place in Goree Prison. The eight singers in the band go on to be embraced by the public and were eventually pardoned of their crimes. It is rumored that Aniston will co-produce the musical project with big names such as Kelly Rowland, Pam Tillis and Ellen Pompeo.

Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and brother Josh Kelley "Georgia Clay" almost had a joint musical path instead of their own separate ones. When they were younger The Kelley brothers caught the attention of the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, and his manager, Larry Friday. "We were too young," Josh says, "We were like 14. It was ridiculous." According to Josh, Larry Friday enticed the boys with alcohol. "We're going to New York," Larry promised. "You're going to do a big CD release party. All the finest girls in the world are going to be there. Champagne!" Luckily, their Dad stopped it from going any further and the guys grew up to be successful on their own.
