  • Demrick Asks Fans to ‘Pray for Me,’ Doesn’t Take Success for Granted

    Demrick describes the state of mind behind his song “Pray for Me” as the halfway house for success. He’s accomplished many of the things on his wish list, but he is keeping his ego in check. “Pray for Me” sets Demrick apart from his contemporaries for chronicling his plight in real time. So in the song’s first verse, he explains that just because he’s friends with Cypress Hill and has “rapped with Dr. Dre” and “shut down the whole ...  | More »

    Gretchen Wilson put out her last album, I Got Your Country Right Here, three years ago--but the famous Redneck Woman has hardly been resting on her laurels during all that time. In the interim, she's moved homes, solidified plans for three--yes, three--albums to be released in 2013, and found her footing as a record label owner (Wilson founded her own Redneck Records in 2009 after parting ways with original label Sony). Wilson, who has a well-documented history of ups and downs with her...  | More »

    I’m embarrassed to admit that—though it was only a meager car ride away—I skipped attending this year’s celebrated Coachella Festival last week! And though it’s happening again next weekend, I’ll probably be skipping that, too!

  • Exclusive: ‘American Idol’ Fan Fave Charlie Askew Finally Speaks!

     |  Lyndsey Parker

    Charlie Askew was an early fan favorite (and my personal favorite) on "American Idol" this season, quickly amassing a devoted fanbase of Awkward Turtles with his quirky charm, theatrical performances, and weirdness-glorifying ethos. His exit from the show, after an unabashedly emotional (if polarizing and misunderstood) rendition of Genesis's brooding "Mama," was tough to take--and then the Turtles had to re-experience that heartbreak, when Charlie competed for a bonus spot on the Idols&...  | More »
