Did you know Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum auditioned for American Idol twice?! And the crazy people at Idol never even let her sing in front of the judges. She gets that chance on Thursday night when she, Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley perform a new song on the results show.
Now that one big wedding is over...we can focus on the upcoming I Do's of Country's big couple Miranda and Blake...but don't expect their nuptials to mean they'll live together right away. Right now Miranda has a farm a few miles down the road from Blake's home in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. And though they'll probably combine households at some point after they're married, they like having the two homes. Miranda tells USA Today Weekend, "I have a pool, so we're at my house more in the summer and his house in the winter, because it's closer to the deer lease. Eventually, we'll have our clothes in one closet." Miranda and Blake take the walk down the aisle on May 14th and if you're wondering what Blake's thoughts on the wedding are he just said, in typical Blake style "I mean, I'm getting married in a month and about to have my manhood cut, but I'm happy about it for a change. I'm ready for that part of my life."
Move over Idol- I'm loving The Voice! Mainly because Blake is a much funnier judge than any of the Idol crew and now the Queen of Country- Reba will be joining in on the fun! Reba McEntire will join The Voice as an advisor to help Blake Shelton coach his team during the NBC show's upcoming battle rounds. Also joining as advisors are Australian pop artist Sia, R&B singer Monica and music producer Adam Blackstone. The Voice will hold a second round of blind auditions on Tuesday at 9 p.m. [ET].
After the royal wedding, Kimberly Schlapman of Little Big Town recalled a special memory on the band's Facebook page. She writes, "I was very young when Princess Diana married Prince Charles. My mother and I camped out in sleeping bags in our living room that night so we could wake up at 4 a.m. to watch the wedding live on TV. That is a memory I will cherish forever. Thanks, Mama." Aww sweet!
Action star Dwayne Johnson is going country...in a movie that is! The Rock will play singing legend Charley Pride in an upcoming bio-pic. Charley admits that he was initially surprised by the casting. But, he says, Johnson "flew down to Dallas and spent a day with me just sitting, talking recently. And when he left it was like parting with an old friend. We had such similar views on so many things."
Mark your calendars for August 23rd- Martina McBride's new CD hits stores then!
