In case you never had a chance to see Shania Twain live in concert, here’s a look back at what it was like. Enjoy!
Thanks to our friends at CountryMusicTattleTale.com for finding this little gem. It’s a clip of Carrie Underwood in concert last night performing with Ashley from Sons of Sylvia. They’re singing What Can I Say, and the reason Carrie and Ashley are cracking up is because Ashley is singing the song with “fangs” in his mouth. Enjoy!

To wet your appetite for the new album, here’s a video playlist from their live online concert from NYC on October 18, 2010. Good luck and enjoy!
You and Tequila is a track on Kenny Chesney’s new album Hemingway’s Whiskey. It’s actually one of my favorite songs on the album. It’s a duet with Grace Potter, the lead singer of Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. Last night at the Ryman, they were the opening act for the Avett Brothers, and they surprised the crowd by bringing Kenny onstage to sing this song with them.
According to CMT.com, “While many in the audience seemed to be in a state of disbelief, Chesney received a warm welcome when he walked onstage wearing khaki pants, blue long-sleeve T-shirt and knit cap. He watched the band’s entire set from the side of the stage.”
While I love seeing stars like Kenny in concert, I almost wish every major act would take a year off from touring because it enables them to do things like this. If anyone reading this happened to be at the show last night, let us know how it went. Thanks and enjoy this interview with Kenny and Grace about You and Tequila.
Since the results of our Twitter poll from a few weeks ago revealed that quite a lot of you are huge fans of Casey James, I thought y’all might enjoy this video playlist containing six Casey James videos. Enjoy!
Are you ready to get Loaded with Blake Shelton? I am. Click here to find out how you can too.
Trent Tomlinson’s new single is called I Cross My Heart. If this one gets enough plays on the radio, it’ll be a big hit for Trent. Enjoy!
P.S. The funny thing about this video is the guitar player to Trent’s left seems to be asleep towards the end of the song.
Today’s #1 flashback comes from 1999 when Martina McBride’s I Love You moved up to number one on the Billboard Hot Country charts on this day. I don’t know about you, but I love Martina McBride with short hair…
Favorite Waste Of Time is the latest single from Will Hoge’s The Wreckage album. For more about Will, visit his official website at WillHoge.com. I think you’re going to like this one. Will’s an awesome singer/songwriter who deserves more airplay. If you like this one, give your local radio station a call and ask them to play it. Thanks!
