Musicians have been dating each other for decades, and when they join together in the studio, the results are pretty magical. One of the first mainstream pop duets performed by a real-life couple was 1965’s “I Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher. This feel-good song has become the platform for the artists of today to create their… More »
The iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas is heading into its third year, and the fest has rightly earned its reputation for having the biggest pop talent, like, ever: The just-announced line-up features an absurd roster of performers, including Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry on the main stage with Miley Cyrus and Avril Lavigne in the adjacent iHeartRadio Music Festival Village, which will feature… More »
Oh, and what a 4th of July it was in New York City, where the annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular was, um, spectacular-ish. And aside from all the fireworks, there were performances from pop stars, too!
There was Taylor Swift (beamed in via satellite from Dallas, which sort of defeats the whole purpose,… More »
What do Beyonce, One Direction, Kanye West, Ke$ha, Jay-Z, Bruno Mars, Usher, Tim McGraw, Pearl Jam, No Doubt and Gotye have in common? They’re all richer than you!

So, when you think Tim McGraw, what do you think of? Down the road, it’ll probably be the just-leaked McGraw collaboration with Taylor Swift and Keith Urban, “Highway Don’t Care,” a swoony country midtempo with a soaring chorus. Both crooners sound twangy and emotive, but it’s Swift’s vocals that really shine: They’re breathy, light and airier than anything on Red.

Adele’s 21 is in the peak position on Billboard’s Top 200 for an 18th non-consecutive week, though she may have some competition on the horizon in the form of Lana Del Rey’s debut Born To Die — the standard and deluxe versions of which are occupying the top two spots on iTunes. The divisive “Video… More »
Okay, so most of our predictions for American Idol Season 10 didn’t end up happening, but we can’t say we’re that upset with country crooner Scotty McCreery being crowned champ. Besides seeing the 17-year old being rubbed by all his fellow Idols (and smooched on the cheek by runner-up Lauren Alaina), last night’s finale was… More »
In this edition of our noontime headlines roundup: Faith Hill’s “Comic Strip” poses, Billy Joel gets out of hand with a Sharpie, and Justin Timberlake returns to the Saturday Night Live stage for the 454th time. … More »
The Academy of Country Music Awards have some obligation to be slightly edgier due to their Las Vegas location and “always a bridesmaid” relationship to the similarly acronymed CMAs, but other than the spectacle Jamie Foxx shouting out Barack Obama on stage, the show’s reason for existence wasn’t always apparent. The broadcast mostly stuck to… More »
The idea of former Senator Bill Frist becoming governor of Tennessee in 2010 is a distressing thought to Tennessee Democrats, the party at large, and those of us still bitter over the crackdown on Internet gambling. (How am I supposed to place my wasted bets on the U.S. to win the World Cup now?) So,… More »

“Okay, it’s official,” I wrote to Maura midday on Thursday, when Billboard released the new Hot 100. “I have seriously underestimated ‘Whatever You Like.’”
That durable smash by Atlanta rap deity T.I. moves into the penthouse for the third time since late August. Directly behind it is T.I.’s simultaneous hit, the Rihanna duet “Live Your… More »

Above, Tim McGraw gives the hook to some guy who had enough money to pay for a front-row seat to his show and enough booze in him to think that getting up in the space of a nearby woman was a good idea. More »
There are days where I want to stop writing about Vampire Weekend saying they’ve “paid [theiir] dues,” or Roger Waters’ lost inflatable pig, and just write about country music. Miranda Lambert had a benefit for her local humane society! Emmylou Harris was inducted to the Country Music Hall of Fame! I don’t actually enjoy country… More »
