    If you're having a hard time getting over an ex that you thought was The One, rock and rap artist Benny Cassette has sulking music for you. "Empires," from Benny's recently released EP "Angel Dust," sets the tone with its moody, throbbing bass line, harmonic layered backing vocals and slow motion pacing of the track he produced. Benny uses metaphors to describe his and Ms. Wrong's efforts to construct a solid foundation: "We built these walls with bricks and wire. We raised t...  | More »

Only two weeks ago, Vino had...  | More »

    To say that Randy Travis has had a difficult year would be an understatement. The 53-year-old singer was arrested twice in 2012--once for public intoxication and once for driving under the influence--not to mention made shocking headlines when he totaled his car and visited a convenience store sans clothing. However, it appears he's finally acknowledged that he's got a problem, and he wants to fix it. According to TMZ, Travis's lawyer Larry Friedman has stated his client has "...  | More »
