     |  Dave DiMartino

    Sitting in a chair, lights and cameras pointed at her, Lisa Marie Presley involuntarily twitches when a soundman’s boom microphone accidentally hits the ornate chandelier hanging overhead, just outside camera range.She is sitting dead center, smack in the heart of Graceland — and however controlled, is giving off the vibe of a teenager whose parents went away for the weekend and now an unexpected mob of party guests are clumsily, but methodically, wrecking her house.And what on ea...  | More »

    Backstage at the CMA Awards, there was the usual amount of discussion about who got statues and why. But one of the other big topics was how Miranda Lambert got either more or less (depending on your viewpoint)... statuesque. In three words: Girlfriend is slim. "I just feel like I needed to get ahead of the game," Lambert told the assembled press. "I’m gonna turn 30 on Sunday, and people say, are you okay about it? I guess I am, but I guess I’m not. Because I feel like everybody...  | More »

    Chicago White Sox pitcher John Danks was probably one of the few major-league baseball pros out there who wasn't watching Game 2 of the 2013 World Series Thursday evening. As it turns out, he was quite busy with something else: Getting married to country star Ashley Monroe! As reported by People, "Hippie Annie" from the Pistol Annies and Danks exchanged vows in Tennessee with fellow country luminary/"Voice" coach Blake Shelton officiating. Shelton's wife -- and Monroe's Pistol...  | More »

    Chris Young swears he didn't break any mirrors or walk under any ladders over the summer. Yet, the country star is still fielding questions about the time he famously found himself in a bizarre unlucky situation: Back in August, Young fell abruptly ill from a frightening leg infection that forced him to cancel several tour dates. He's doing just fine now -- really! "Everybody seems really concerned about my health scare still," he notes with a laugh. "It was one of those just reall...  | More »

  • Florida Georgia Line is Excited For the American Music Awards

     |  Wendy Geller

    To say 2013 has been a good year for new country duo Florida Georgia Line is kind of like saying Christmas is a busy holiday for Santa Claus. Just a little over a year since Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard's breakout hit "Cruise" was released, the pair have found themselves breaking musical records (the single is the best-selling song by a country duo in digital history), crossing over into multi-genre audiences...and, most recently, scooping up a remarkable four nominations at the upcomi...  | More »

  • Video: Amos Lee Takes the Road to Nashville

    October 3, 2013 7:15 PM ET

    Given the number of country luminaries singer-songwriter Amos Lee has befriended or worked with the years -- Willie Nelson, Zac Brown and Alison Krauss among them -- one thing about his latest album, Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song, comes as a surprise. It's the very first set he's recorded in Nashville. "Yeah, this is the first time," Lee says with a smile. He explains that it was a key member of his recording team that ultimately brought him to Music City. "What drew us to Na...  | More »

  • Chris Daughtry Talks Beatles vs. Stones and Daughtry vs. the Haters

     |  Lyndsey Parker

    "American Idol" Season 5 finalist Chris Daughtry is about to release a new album, Baptized, and while its new sound — poppier, cleaner, lighter, even downright folksy in parts — will likely win his eponymous band new fans, it's also inevitable that it'll alienate some aficionados of the angst-ridden, hard-charging signature sound of Daughtry's first three LPs. Already the album's lead single, the EDM-tinged "Waiting for a Superman," has polarized Daughtry'...  | More »

     |  Wendy Geller

    Keith Urban isn't a Nashville superstar because he was unable to settle on a signature sound. Fans all over the globe have come to know the vibe the Australian-raised singer/songwriter brings to all of his highly successful records. However, for his eighth studio album, Fuse, they will no doubt notice that Urban sounds, well, a little different. And for good reason: He's been working with different sounds, different instrumentation, different influences, and a bunch of different co...  | More »

    September 18, 2013 11:30 AM ET

    If you're a fan of the outlaw biker TV drama "Sons Of Anarchy," you no doubt watched Tuesday night's episode. And, you probably were impressed by a certain song you heard during the broadcast -- as well as perhaps thought the vocalist sounded a bit familiar. There's a good reason for that: Last night's song, "Set My Body Free," is delivered by bona fide outlaw the White Buffalo (a.k.a. songwriter Jake Smith), who's had more songs on the series than any other artist. ...  | More »
