If we're honest, we've probably all caught ourselves bemoaning the future of this or that, whether our critiques are directed at a genre of music, politics or even an entire generation. While many veteran artists often become the biggest naysayers for the future of their beloved genres as soon as they're taken over by a ton of "kids," Merle Haggard doesn't buy all that. In a recent interview with the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, Haggard said he thinks things in the country music realm are on the up.
Zac Brown may have his own band, but that's just one portion of the star's entrepreneurial ventures -- 1/12 to be exact. Brown helps operate a dozen companies, though he is quick to say he does it "with a lot of help of other people." But the serial entrepreneur has one endeavor that seems to be taking up more of his time lately, and that's his non-profit camp Camp Southern Ground, which will be open to campers come 2014.
While both Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks are highly celebrated names in country music, they're also parents, which does more to dictate their schedule at the moment than audience demand. However, with their youngest daughter set to graduate high school in 2014, the couple are starting to let themselves dream about life as empty-nesters.
Eli Young Band have literally seen their career catapult onto center stage in the past few months. After their single 'Crazy Girl' became their first No.1 hit, the four-man country outfit snagged an ACM Award for Song of the Year with the same smash hit, making an underdog story to be remembered. But even in the face of so many great things at once, the guys are not about to forget who it was that helped them get to this point.
He's no Millionaire Matchmaker, but celebrity crooner Brett Eldredge apparently fancies himself a bit of a country cupid. In his new dating series 'Take Me Home Tonight,' Eldredge is hoping to start love stories by pairing up his fans with other fans he thinks will do well together. To be clear, the 'It Ain't Gotta Be Love' singer isn't putting himself out there and hoping to get a date; he's just setting out to help others find their perfect match.
We've seen a good bit of Keith Urban lately, what with his recent No. 1 single 'You Gonna Fly,' his surprise induction into the Grand Ole Opry and his role as a celebrity coach on the Australian version of 'The Voice.' But one thing most of Urban's fans might not know is that between all of the appearances, the singer is also hard at work on his next record.
Wade Bowen is gearing up to host his 14th Annual Wade Bowen Celebrity Golf Tournament and Concert on May 6-7 in his hometown of Waco, Texas. The 'Saturday Night' singer hosts the tournament each year to benefit the Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children, an organization that works with adults and children who have been victims of crime.
Country duo Love and Theft are making an appearance on the new ABC series 'GCB' on Sunday (April 29) where they will perform their hit single 'Angel Eyes.' In the clip below, you can see the band's Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson performing on a stage before a giant banner that reads "Dallas Interfaith Barbeque Invitational." As the song plays, all the GCBs enter the scene in quite a dramatic moment, apparently taking part in the invitational with their barbeque team known as the "Spicy Racks."
It has seriously been a good year for Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. The two have not only netted more awards than they can likely count but they were also both recognized just for being strikingly good-looking by People magazine. After Shelton was crowned Country Music's Hottest Guy by People Country, his stunning wife just landed in People's most beautiful women of 2012 issue.
