Review: Duets – Episode 4: Since U Been Terrible

Duets-Promo-Pic-425x425

It’s week 4 of “Duets” and even though we’re sending someone home tonight, everyone’s got their party pants on. I’m anxiously awaiting the opening number and wondering which combination of judges we’ll receive. It’s a total let down when there’s no performance from the judges sans amateurs. I had my fingers crossed for an epic pop-countrified duet from Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Nettles, but am sorely disappointed. Dear Duets Gods, please make that happen. Amen.

We launch right into a brief recap and Quasimodo tells us that the chart is “fresh” this week. Does that mean that the last three weeks were combined together into a cumulative score to make up the leaderboard? That would make sense, but then what happened to Johnny Gray’s (who?!) score? Is Quddus just making up the rules as we go along? I still don’t get it.

The teenybopper in me squeals for Jason, who is opening with The Rolling Stones classic, “Satisfaction.” Kelly attempts to give Jason dancing lessons, and I’m sorry Miss Clarkson, I am fo’ real…Anyway, I love you and all, but I am one of the five people who has seen From Justin to Kelly. Dance ain’t your strong suit. Once they hit the stage, I’m wondering why Jason always rolls up the sleeves of his jackets. Why bother to even wear a jacket if you’re just going to roll up the sleeves? Anyways, this is far and away Jason’s best performance and he works the stage pretty well. When we go to the judges, we learn that, once again John Legend forgot to take his happy pills.

Exclusive Interview: Introducing The Brodie Stewart Band

aboutbrodie

While hailing from California, Brodie Stewart still has some southern roots. As a young child, some of Brodie’s favorite things to do were attending the Rodeo, listening to country music, singing and playing the guitar. This is what influenced Brodie to start his own southern rock band, where he got to tour the country opening up for big artists in sold out arenas.

After this, Brodie returned to his love of country music. He wrote tracks for his own band, and also wrote and produced songs for various other artists. It wasn’t long until Brodie was signed by Martin Kierszenbaum, the president of Cherrytree/Interscope Records, for a song/production deal to their label. Not long after that, Brodie signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music Publishing.

While gearing up for the release of their debut album, “Born American,” The Brodie Stewart Band has been touring the west coast opening up for big names such as Lee Brice, Thompson Square, Easton Corbin, Joe Nichols, Blues Traveler, Lonestar, Chris Cable, Jason Michael Carroll, Terri Clark, Josh Gracin, Casey James, The Farm, Moonshine Bandits, Greg Bates, Christian Kane, Chuck Wicks, and many more!

Celebs Tweet the Darnedest Things!

It’s been an active week in the Twitterverse, and at the center of the activity lie some of your favorite country artists. Let’s cut to the chase and laugh together at the best of the best that we caught over the last seven days.

When life imitates art, and art involves driving without hands, you end up in the predicament Luke Bryan ended up in this week. Luke Bryan tweeted “@LukeBryanOnline: Before y’all get out of your truck. Make sure you put it in park. Trust me.”

BVcpw_wCYAAV_PY.jpg large

Some very solid words of advice from Luke. Perhaps he, too, had his hands up while rocking in his truck…

I just saw Runner Runner and had some pleasant Justin Timberlake inspired dreams soon thereafter. Apparently I’m not the only one, based on Jennifer Nettles‘ recent tweet – “@JenniferNettles: I had a dream last night that my baby sleeping beside me yelled out ‘Ladieeees and Gentlemen: Justin Timberlaaaaaake’. ??? @jtimberlake

Not only is Justin Timberlake taking over the the music and acting world, he is taking over the dream world too. Hey, there are much worse people for your baby to introduce to you in your slumber.

Having 100,000 Twitter followers is a big deal. So, it should come as no surprise that some musicians will go through great lengths to encourage their fans to help them hit that landmark number. See Terri Clark who recently tweeted “@TerriClarkMusic: Ok so the first person to get me 100k twitter followers, gets my first born. Best hurry. My Ovaries=californiaraisinsdoingthebackstroke”

Perhaps an interesting offer, but if the kid pops out singing the way his/her mom does, it might be worth your while…

If you frequent the gym, you know there is always that character who flexes in the mirror and not-so-discretely checks himself out. Sunny Sweeney was lucky enough to spot that guy during her recent workout. Sunny tweeted “@GettinSweeney: The grunting slaps-his-stomach-in-the-mirror guy is in the gym. Yay! No.” Not long after Sunny tweeted, calling out the narcissistic gym-goer, she followed it up with “I also saw someone I knew in the gym. I hope he doesn’t think my last tweet was about him. Bahaha!!!”

Sir who Sunny knew in the gym, rest assure she was not mocking you. However, if you do, in fact, grunt and slap your stomach in the mirror, WE ARE mocking you.
