    For "American Idol" winner Kris Allen, the past couple of years have been more dramatic than an entire season's worth of elimination nights. In 2012, he issued his second post-"Idol" album, "Thank You Camellia," only to receive little promotion and part ways with both 19 Management and RCA Records shortly after its release. Then in 2013, he experienced the highest of highs and lowest of lows. He became a father, but he also shattered his wrist in a head-on car crash; after multiple wris...  | More »

    "It was all about timing and purpose." That's how Billy Ray Cyrus explains his -- surprising to some -- collaboration with vocal legend Dionne Warwick. The pair have released a moving ballad, "Hope is Just Ahead" which has been charming fans of all genres of music, in great part to the unexpectedly seamless way the two very different singers' voices meld together. As it turns out, Cyrus and Warwick were brought together by Warwick's son, who heard the song while Cyrus was tapi...  | More »

    March 13, 2014 3:45 PM ET | Yahoo Maximum Performance

    Spandau Ballet has — as the lyrics of their signature hit, "True," attest — "come back again." A full 28 years since their last U.S. performance, the British New Romantic pioneers took the stage at Austin's Vulcan Gas Co. Wednesday night as part of the annual South by Southwest festival, delighting the audience with an 11-song set including hits "Gold" and, of course, "True." Spandau Ballet was not only in town to revisit an American stage — the band was also promotin...  | More »
