The trash talk has begun. Tim McGraw is known for his music and the way he makes a basketball hoop sing before shows. Kip Moore had a basketball scholarship at Wallace State College in Alabama. The two men start touring together next Friday in Fresno, Calif. You can see where this is headed.
The Marshall Tucker Band is as old as the CMA Music Festival. Both were born in 1972, and both have have experienced changes in recent years. Fans at this year's Kick-Off Concert at the Chevrolet Riverfront Stage will find out that both have the same infectious energy today that they did 40 years ago. Maybe even more.
Being a first-time mom is hard enough. Now add moving states, filming a reality show, doing charity work and releasing an EP into the mix and you've got a very busy 26-year-old. Jessie James Decker does all that and more now that her baby girl Vivianne Rose has arrived.
There's a curse that comes with being first. Ronnie Dunn knows it, as does anyone else who's dared to step outside the circle those who've come before him or her carved into the oak. Is he an outsider? That question -- unfathomable to many just five years ago -- seems fair today. It was also fair 35 years ago.
To say Charlie Daniels is a Bob Dylan fan is to say the famous country singer plays an OK fiddle. It's an understatement. Daniels was in Dylan's band to record three albums in the late '60s and early '70s, and has since appreciated his music, even if he didn't necessarily always know what the folk-rocker was talking about.
Fans know Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay met at a house party, but there are a few other details about that fated night that paint a more accurate picture of where the duo came from, and just how quickly their careers took off.
Josh Thompson's new 'Turn It Up' album (April 1) sticks to what the singer does best. The 10 songs fall in line with the unique brand of blue collar country this Wisconsin native introduced on 'Way Out Here' in 2010. A lots changed since then, but a few important things have stayed the same.
