  • The Band Perry’s “You Lie” has gold.
  • Carrie Underwood and Tony Bennett to duet on the premier of Blue Bloods.
  • Grant Alden has lots of feelings about Spotify, Turntable, and online music communities.
  • This Marine wants Luke Bryan to be her date to the Marine Corps Ball. Get it, girl.
  • Cumberland River has a new video for their song “Cold and Withered Heart.”
  • Help Denny Tedesco release his documentary about The Wrecking Crew, a group of session musicians who performed on numerous classics including Glen Campbell’s (a Wrecking Crew member himself before embarking on a solo career) “Wichita Lineman” and his version of “Gentle On My Mind.”

    …no matter what all of luke bryan’s friends say about taking that charming marine to the ball – she definitely would make me want to.

    My only issue with that Peter Cooper article is that Keith Urban has a sideman who plays with him live and on all his records – Chris McHugh. Jerry Flowers sort of counts too. Although I’m not sure either of them play kazoo.

    Happy for Blake Shelton, but man… does “Honey Bee” really have to the song that introduces “country music” to the unenlightened?

    Sure, it’s catchy, but it’s one of his dumbest singles in years. Which is saying something after “Hillbilly Bone”.
