Every Sunday Morning we feature Classic Country on 1077/GNA. We recently showcased the greatest hits of a group that's working just as hard today as when they were having their biggest radio hits in the early '80s.
The 2013 Billboard Music Awards, which aired live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday night (May 19), brought out the biggest singing stars from all genres -- including country.
Hot young country newcomer Hunter Hayes got the opportunity of a lifetime when he opened up for superstar Carrie Underwood on her Blown Away Tour this year. He wrapped up his dates with Underwood at a performance in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Saturday night (May 18) -- but she wasn't going to let him get away without a proper sendoff, pulling an onstage prank that really got his goat.
George Jones was aware of his legacy at least as far back as 2005. That's when he conducted an interview with Taste of Country sister station WGNA in Albany, N.Y. and talked about how he'd like to be remembered. The Possum considered the good and bad of how he'd lived and summed it up for his audience.
Tim McGraw's father was late Phillies relief pitcher Tug McGraw, who died of brain cancer in 2004. While the two didn't form a strong relationship until Tim was 18, the 'Highway Don't Care' singer revealed to Larry King how he discovered his birth certificate and thus uncovered his true paternity.
With a string of No. 1 singles – 'Tomorrow' and 'You' from 2011's 'Neon,' and 'Gettin' You Home,' 'The Man I Want to Be' and 'Voices,' from 2009's 'The Man I Want to Be'-- there are expectations surrounding Chris Young's upcoming fourth album. But as for pressure? Pft. He's feeling none of that.
Blake Shelton's marriage to Miranda Lambert has been the subject of intense speculation recently, with various tabloid reports alternately claiming that the couple are either divorcing or having a baby together.
Randy Travis was arrested last August for a DWI, obstruction and retaliation after crashing his Trans Am, then verbally threatening the police officers who responded to the scene. The singer was naked at the time of his arrest, and now he has filed suit against the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Office of the Attorney General to prevent the release of the arrest video.
George Strait steps back in time for his newest release, 'Love Is Everything.' In the past, the singer always found a way to add a touch of contemporary to his traditional sound. There's nothing to separate this from albums he made throughout the '80s and '90s, but that's not necessarily a criticism.
